Resilient Community March

Resilient Community March
After more than a year of being apart, and two years without a typical Pride Parade and Festival, we invite you to join San Diego’s LGBTQ community in a demonstration of our strength, resilience, and resolve to continue the fight for justice and liberation. Learn more here: www.sdpride.org/march As we as individuals, our organizations, and businesses take time to stay safe and heal, a full scale Pride Parade of over a quarter million people simply isn’t possible this year, so we’re going back to our roots and taking to the streets. In 2021, 52 years after the 3-day uprising at Stonewall in New York City, it is vital that we continue to stand united in demanding LGBTQ+ equality, freedom, and liberation. Just this year, there have been over 250 anti-LGBTQ bills introduced in state legislatures across the country, mostly focused on creating legal avenues to discriminate against and actively harm transgender youth. Black and brown transgender women continue to be killed at epidemic levels, simply for being who they authentically are. Indigenous women, LGBTQ+, and Two-Spirit folks are disproportionately the victims of horrific violence, facing murder rates nearly 10 times the national average. This year started with an insurrection on our nation’s Capitol, and racism, misogyny, and anti-LGBTQ+ discrimination continue to permeate almost every sector of our lives. The COVID-19 pandemic has disproportionately affected our LGBTQ+ community members with devastating impacts on our economic, physical, and mental health. The LGBTQ+ community is resilient, we are strong, and we have so much still to fight for. Rather than our typical Pride Parade which would start in Hillcrest’s Pride Plaza and travel down to Balboa Park, this year we will meet in Balboa Park and march into Hillcrest. We invite you to join us for this march to reconnect after a year of isolation, and to bring your best Prideful attire, flags, protest signs, and messages of hope and resilience. At the conclusion of the march, we hope you will support our local LGBTQ-owned businesses, restaurants, bars, staff, servers, bartenders, DJs, and Drag Queens.
