10:00 am: Pride 2019: Pan-Disabled Contingent "Be Seen"
Jun 30 –
We are excited to announce that LightHouse for the Blind and Visually Impaired will march in the 49th annual San Francisco Pride Parade on Sunday, June 30! The San Francisco Pride Parade’s mission is to educate the world, commemorate LGBT+ heritage, celebrate LGBT+ culture and liberate LGBT+ people. This aligns with LightHouse’s mission to promote equality and self-reliance for people who are blind or visually impaired, and promotes the visibility of LGBT+ blind and disabled people.
The LightHouse is committed to inclusivity. Blindness intersects with every single identity, and we recognize the need to amplify the voices of disabled LGBT+ people and our community members. LightHouse is proud to open our doors and extend an invitation to all disabled LGBT+ community members, their families, friends, allies and the organizations that serve them. Join us as we celebrate the intersectionality of people who are blind, have low vision, have other disabilities, and the many community members who identify with both communities or actively want to support LGBT+ visibility. It’s a central part of our blind experience to be seen, be heard and to be proud of who we are!
There are two options for participating with us:
After the parade, all registered participants are welcome to join the celebration at LightHouse (1155 Market St. 10th floor) for light refreshments. Only those registered will be allowed into the building so spread this link far and wide! All are welcome!
To register for this day as part of LightHouse, visit our Eventbrite page or call Allyson Ferrari at (415) 694 – 7320.

If you've ever wanted to try this fun form of exercise and aerial art, this workshop is for you! We are looking for a small group of blind and visually impaired adults to attend a private class where you will learn the basics of lyra in a safe and supportive environment. Because of this wonderful partnership, we can offer this class at the very low cost of ten dollars.
