5pm: March from Balboa Park to the Laverne Cox Spirit of Stonewall Rally at the Rainbow flag on Normal Street and University Avenue: https://www.facebook.com/events/1468964536666390/
The idea is to have a space for our community to celebrate pride in whatever that means to you.
Bring food, friends, family, art, music, games, or anything you want to share.
Although this space is organized and created exclusively by grassroots activists and community members, we welcome community organizations to show their support. If you would like to sponsor or support this event, please contact Amber at firstname.lastname@example.org and they will liaison with the group.
