Only One Week Until
The Inaugural Ken Jones Awards Reception!

Join SF Pride
on Thursday, Oct. 14, from 6-8 p.m.
at the Hilton Union Square San Francisco Hotel,
as we recognize a new generation of LGBTQ+ leadership
while paying homage to an icon.
The first Black president of San Francisco Pride, an early HIV/AIDS activist, veteran, an ordained deacon, and a fighter for racial justice, Ken Jones was a hero — a hero to the LGBTQ+ movement generally and to our organization specifically. Sadly, Ken lost his fight with cancer earlier this year at age 70.
Next Thursday, Oct. 14, at 6 p.m., San Francisco Pride will honor the memory of this irreplaceable activist with our inaugural Ken Jones Awards Reception & Fundraiserheld at the Cityscape Lounge on the 46th floor of the Hilton San Francisco-Union Square.
Join us as we recognize the achievements of members of our community with the following awards:

The Queerness: SF Chronicle Food Critic Soleil Ho

Episode 009 of SF Pride's in-house podcast features a charming interview with San Francisco Chronicle restaurant reviewer and Twitter all-star Soleil Ho! Soleil and SF Pride communications manager Peter-Astrid Kane — who happened to grow up in the same suburb of NYC — chat about her desire to start writing negative reviews post-pandemic, why the adjective "slutty" can be troublesome, and plenty more.
Inside Pride: Pro Golfers Hailey Davidson and Tadd Fujikawa

On the latest installment of Inside Pride an ongoing video series giving our communities greater insight into who we are and what we do — Peter-Astrid talks to two history-making professional golfers: Hailey Davidson and Tadd Fujikawa!

Hailey is the first trans woman ever to win a pro golf tournament. Tadd is the youngest players ever to qualify for the US Open and the first — and so far only — male professional golfer to come out as gay. They'll both be at SF Pride's Third Annual Golf Tournament and Fundraiser at TPC Harding Park this weekend, but in the meantime, they have plenty to offer about LGBTQ+ representation in sports and the changing world of golf.
