San Diego Pride is excited to provide a variety of engagement options as we invite participants to celebrate Pride season in ways that feel comfortable, healthy, and safe. As we work to bring folks together again for Pride in 2023, we will also be providing live streaming options for many of our events. We will continue to work with local, state, and federal public health officials to adjust our policies and procedures to be in alignment with the ever-changing best practices that prioritize public health and safety.
