This is the 49th Annual LGBT Pride Parade and Celebration. The theme for 2019 is Generations of Resistance. This theme is not only a nod to the 50th commemoration of the Stonewall Riots, but also to those at Compton’s Cafeteria who stood up against police brutality in 1966, and the decades of LGBTQ+ activism, creativity, and advocacy born right here in San Francisco.
