ABOUT THE SF PRIDE CELEBRATION
San Francisco Pride has been said to be "one of the last remaining pride events that can truly be called a rite of passage."
The SF Pride Celebration will be held over the weekend of June 23 and 24, 2012, in downtown San Francisco in Civic Center at the foot of San Francisco's historic City Hall where Harvey Milk once stood and addressed Pride-goers more tha thirty years ago.
With over 200 parade contingents, 300 exhibitors, and more than 20 stages and venues, the San Francisco LGBT Pride Celebration and Parade is the largest LGBT gathering in the nation.
The Celebration at Civic Center is host to our Main Stage which has been host to incredible acts like Lady Gaga, the Backstreet Boys, Asian pop sensation BoA, Solange Knowles, the Cliks, Margaret Cho, Kat DeLuna, Inaya Day, Crystal Waters, and Big Freedia, among others.
2012 EVENT THEME: GLOBAL EQUALITY
The event theme for the 42nd annual San Francisco Pride Celebration & Parade was selected by Pride's Membership at our Annual General Meeting on September 10, 2011.
Bishop Christopher Senyonjo of Uganda and Rev. Canon Albert Ogle of San Diego submitted the winning theme. The Bishop and Rev. Canon Albert Ogle of the St. Paul's Foundation for International Reconciliation met with the leadership of San Francisco Pride on Friday, September 2, and submitted their theme. Bishop Senyonjo has been visiting California to raise awareness of the plight of LGBT Ugandans and others in the 76 countries which currently criminalize LGBT people.
Bishop Senyonjo has called for a grass roots educational campaign, led by local Pride organizations to help the American public understand the urgency to decriminalize LGBT people globally, particularly around access to HIV prevention information and critically needed health services.

The Port of San Francisco has retained the Arts Commission to assist in the commissioning of a public artwork to be located at Pier 92, near the intersection of Illinois and Cargo Way, along San Francisco's southern waterfront. The site is primarily an industrial area with shipping cranes and two large grain silos that have not been in use since the 1970s. While the majority of traffic along Cargo Way is industrial, the Blue Greenway project will create open spaces along the waterfront that will attract a diversity of activities for Bay Area residents and visitors to the City.

Join CurrenC SF - Save time and money with Direct Deposit
CurrenC SF is here to help every organization and worker in San Francisco enjoy the benefits of direct deposit. When you modernize payroll, everyone wins.
Direct deposit makes sure pay is reliable, instantly available and safe. Paper paychecks can take time to deposit and days to clear. Check cashing companies charge high fees, which take money better spent on necessities. Cashing an entire check poses another risk: loss or theft could leave your employee without cash until the next payday.
Your Business Wins
Direct deposit saves money, resources and time. By switching over, you can slash costs for payroll processing, printing and distribution by up to 90%. And you eliminate the headache and expense of lost or stolen checks.
The Environment Wins
If just 10% of San Francisco workers would switch from paper to direct deposit, it would reduce greenhouse gases, and save 5 tons of paper and 44,800 gallons of water a year.
San Francisco Wins
The beneﬁts add up. When workers are ﬁnancially secure, they have more stable families and communities, support local businesses, use fewer city resources and build the tax base. Efﬁcient businesses have more money to create jobs and opportunities. And a cleaner, greener city is good for everybody.
Join CurrenC SF now!
