The 48th annual Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender Pride Parade and March begins at 10:30 a.m. today. The parade starts at Market and Beale streets and ends at Market and Eighth. If you cannot make it to the big shebang—featuring more than 240 contingents, thousands of participants, and more than one million visitors—you can see it live.
After all, crowds aren’t for everyone.
KPIX will broadcast and livestream the parade today from 10:30 a.m. until about 3:30 p.m. The first hour of the coverage will be a Pride special. You can also watch a truncated version later this evening beginning at 11 p.m.
Like every year, the Dykes on Bikes contingent will start the parade. Expect mega corporate company floats to glide up Market alongside resistance-themed protest contingents at today’s march.
After the parade, people will gather at Civic Center to dance, mingle, and celebrate queer San Francisco.
Watching from home will give viewers a better chance of seeing this year’s grand marshals at the parade: Pose -co-writer and producer Our Lady J, Jose Xtravaganza (member of the legendary House of Xtravaganza), Luis Camacho, Silas Howard, Kin Folkz (educator, founder of the Oakland Pride Creative Arts and Film Fest), Jewelle Gomez, and more.
Also of note, there will be many street closures and Muni reroutes happening today. People who want to catch the parade IRL are strongly encouraged to take public transportation.
