Host a Watch Party

Host a #SDPride Watch Party

While we can’t gather in large groups, we can still connect with our community! Hosting a watch party is a great opportunity to engage with your community while you enjoy the virtual event.

Health & Safety First! 

If you do choose to gather in-person, follow all public health guidance in your region. If you or a family or household member are at a heightened risk, please take care of yourself and your community by choosing to engage with us virtually!
