SF Pride 2019

Jeff Howard June 6, 2019

June is Pride Month and Trinity is proud to provide an environment of equality and respect for all people at our wonderful homes across The City. San Francisco’s Civic Center was the setting for many major moments of the Gay Rights Movement including speeches and rallies held by Harvey Milk. More recently, the area served as the center point of same-sex marriage activism and many of the first same-sex couples in California were married at the Civic Center. A list of the best LGBTQ+ philanthropies for social support, healthcare, legal services, and advocacy can be accessed from the linked webpage.

The 49th rendition of the world’s oldest LGBTQ+ parade will depart from The Embarcadero and march down Market Street to the Civic Center at 8th Street on the morning of Sunday, June 30th. The colorful culmination of the parade route on Market Street will be a truly magical sight to behold from the rooftop of the 33 8th Street amenity deck at Trinity Place.

Pride is one of the most exciting times of the year in the Civic Center neighborhood as locals and tourists from all over venture to the area to honor the tremendous progress and history of LGBTQ+ people.
