Pride Month in San Francisco is by all accounts one of the most vibrant times of year, and it just got even more exciting with the in-person return of the Trans March! Guests can expect plenty of music, performances, and activities on Friday, June 24.
The street march will go from 6-7pm, starting at Dolores Park and heading north up Dolores Street, before taking a right turn up Market Street. The march will continue until Taylor Street and end at the intersection of Turk and Taylor.
The rest of the day’s events will go down at Dolores Park from 10:30am-6pm. Guests can enjoy a resource fair, a family area, a performance stage with a variety of acts, and more. Don’t forget to grab a ticket to the Bustin’ Out: The Official Trans March After Party happening from 6pm-2am at El Rio (scroll down on the TGI Justice website for details)
There will also be an intergenerational brunch named in the memory of local transgender activist Felicia “Flames” Elizondo, who passed away last year. The brunch is produced by LGBTQ+ senior housing organization Openhouse and LGBTQ+ nonprofit youth center LYRIC. No reservation is required – you can simply join the event at Dolores Park between 10:30am and 1pm.
San Francisco’s Trans March is one of the largest trans events in the world. It’s been growing steadily in popularity since 2004, when several community activists received an anonymous email requesting an event to uplift the local trans and gender non-conforming communities. The first march began with a gathering in Dolores Park and a march to the Civic Center, and it has grown steadily in popularity throughout the years. The 2022 Trans March will be the first in-person event since 2019.
