A Little bit about our legacy
Each June, the Sacramento LGBT Community Center hosts our largest community engagement of the year, Sacramento Pride, that celebrates LGBTQ+ activism, diversity, and community. SacPride has grown from just a few thousand people in a neighborhood park to more than 20,000 participants on Capitol Mall in 2019. As Pride has evolved, we have continuously worked to make the events as vibrant, accessible, and inclusive of our entire community as possible. In the era of COVID-19, we are bringing SacPride to your screens.
Moving the event to Capitol Mall almost a decade ago and reviving the parade provided unprecedented visibility for our community and allowed the event to expand its footprint and become more accessible. Since then, attendance has more than doubled and the surrounding downtown area has been transformed including the addition of a new arena.
We are always working to make SacPride the best it can be, especially on the heels of the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Riots. We intend to center the voices of our community, many of whom remain vulnerable and continue to fight for survival, as we plan for this year’s free SacPride events.
