Inspired by the 1969 Stonewall Uprising, the Sacramento Pride March returns live on Sunday, June 12, 2022, at 11 a.m. The march will comprise walking contingents, vehicle contingents, and large floats.
Join thousands of your closest friends to cheer on marchers, colorful floats, music, and much more for the annual Sacramento Pride March. Harkening back to the earliest days of Pride events as protests against oppression, this event is both a demonstration of activism in our pursuit of equity and social justice as well as a celebration of diverse Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, Intersex, Asexual, and two-spirit communities and culture.
The Pride March is free and open to all community members starting at Southside Park to the Capitol along 10th Street.
Interested in snagging a spot for your group of friends, organization, or supportive business?

Hello my name is Kai Myers. I am a 24 year old transgender youth in the community and I was born in the gayest month of the year, JUNE! You know what’s funnier than 24? 25!! (I really hope you get that reference) I spend a majority of my time knitting, reading, journaling, gardening, cooking, cleaning, playing video games, and helping the people that matter most to me. I’m currently employed at a “Elementary” school in the Eureka school district that helps and teaches children on the spectrum. I’ve had opportunities to be a vendor at a handful of events thanks to the center and connections I’ve made during the time I’ve spent there including being a vendor at Sacramento pride on June 11 – 12th, so regardless of getting selected as one of your Grand Marshalls you can still count on me showing up and showing out with my support for the community!!

The Sacramento Gay Men’s Chorus (SGMC) was founded in 1984 as the Sacramento Men’s Chorus and aimed to provide a sense of community and support for gay men in Sacramento during the AIDS epidemic. The chorus has always used music as a tool to confront intolerance.
Over the years, the Sacramento Gay Men’s Chorus has become an integral part of Sacramento’s LGBTQ+ and musical communities through our performances and outreach programs.
