The Rally

Spirit of Stonewall

All Pride celebrations trace their heritage to the evening of June 28, 1969, when patrons of the Stonewall Inn in New York City said “No more!” to police harassment. That protest has evolved. Now, each year, vibrant, heart-warming events are held in cities throughout the world to honor and celebrate equality and love.


San Diego’s first rally was held in 1975. San Diego Pride’s Spirit of Stonewall Rally is a time to recognize and honor leaders who are working hard to preserve our gains and meet the many challenges still facing our community.

Come join us as cheering crowds and energetic speakers kick off San Diego Pride Weekend!

When: Friday, July 13 at 6pm – 7pm
Where: Hillcrest Pride Flag
University Ave and Normal St., San Diego, CA 92103

Pride annually accepts nominations from the community to recognize individuals, organizations, and groups who have contributed significantly to the LGBT community through their leadership, activism, and fundraising efforts.

Program, awardees, and speakers will be announced closer to the event.
