Organizers of the 2014 San Francisco LGBT Pride parade and celebration have announced the entertainment lineup and speakers for this year’s events, set for June 28-29.
Celebrity grand marshals and special guests this year will include New York Times bestselling author Janet Mock and gay former Congressman Barney Frank, while musical acts such as dance diva Debby Holiday and San Francisco natives The She’s will perform on the main stage.
George Ridgely, executive director of the LGBT Pride Celebration Committee, said in a June 10 news release, “As with each celebration, we are honored to dedicate a weekend of merriment and commemoration to the courageous work of the LGBT community members and supporters who tirelessly advocate for equality and inclusion every day of the year.”
The theme for the city’s 44th annual Pride is “Color Our World with Pride.” The celebration includes more than 20 community stages and venues, and over 230 contingents have registered for the parade.
There is no cost to attend, though a donation of $5 to $10 is requested. Donations from the celebration have helped Pride contribute nearly $2.3 million to nonprofits since 1997.
