Pride 2021

Pride is a time we come together to celebrate the beautiful diversity of our community, honoring the struggles we’ve overcome and the work we have yet to do. 2020 didn’t stop us, and in 2021 our resilience will continue to shine!

San Diego Pride’s staff and year-round program volunteer leaders will team up with our community partners, sponsors, and small businesses to produce or promote unique Pride celebrations in COVID-19 compliant venues. These live streaming and in-person events will celebrate San Diego’s many distinct LGBTQ communities in ways that uplift diverse cultural identities and experiences. San Diego Pride is presented by Viejas Casino & Resort.

COVID-19 Information

San Diego Pride is excited to provide a variety of options this year as we invite participants to celebrate Pride season in ways that feel comfortable, healthy, and safe. We ask each individual to review the guidelines and setting for each event in order to assess their own comfortability with attendance.

Out of respect for body autonomy and an understanding of the reasons folks may not be vaccinated, San Diego Pride is not requiring vaccination in order to participate in our events. If you have been vaccinated, we ask that you please verify your vaccination with us, and if you are not vaccinated we ask that you wear a mask during your participation.

The State of California strongly recommends that you be fully vaccinated, obtain a negative COVID-19 test prior to attending the event, or wear a face covering. Please understand that populations that may not currently be eligible for vaccination, or may be immunocompromised and whose vaccine protection may be incomplete are at increased risk of contracting COVID-19 when attending large crowded events.

We encourage everyone to sign up for CA Notify as an added layer of protection for themselves and the community to receive alerts when you have been in close contact with someone who tests positive for COVID-19. Sign up here: canotify.ca.gov

Masks will be made available at the events.

For remaining questions please contact [email protected]

NOTICE: According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention an inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 exists in any public place where people are present. COVID-19 is an extremely contagious disease that can lead to severe illness and death. Senior citizens and guests with underlying medical conditions are especially vulnerable. By visiting any in-person Pride event, you voluntarily assume all risks related to exposure to COVID-19. By visiting any in-person Pride event, you are acknowledging that you are, on behalf of yourself or any invitees, voluntarily assuming all risks related to exposure to COVID-19 or any other disease.
