Join us on Friday and Saturday, Oct. 8-9, for the

Third Annual SF Pride Golf Tournament

at San Francisco's famed TPC Harding Park.

Registration is now open!
The golf world's biggest and best LGBTQ+ fundraising event returns to TPC Harding Park, home of the 2020 PGA Championship on Friday and Saturday, Oct. 8-9! This year’s tournament will once again partner with the Professional Golfers Association (NCPGA)and the First Tee of San Francisco, an international youth development organization.

New in 2021 is a Pride Golf Award Reception, to be held on Friday, Oct. 8, at Beaux in the Castro. Organizers will bestow the inaugural SF Pride Leadership in Golf award to a recipient who has expanded LGBTQ+ inclusion in the golfing world.

In this Pro-Am tournament — first-ever PGA-endorsed LGBTQ sporting event — each group of golfers is joined by a local golf professional to enjoy a fun "scramble" format. In 2020, the tournament saw 150 players raise approximately $35,000 for San Francisco Pride.

SF Pride's Inaugural Freedom Day Festival Is Sunday, Oct. 10!

Through the 1990s, Valencia Street was a thriving LGBTQ+ corridor with a strong lesbian presence. Amelia's (now the Valencia Room) and the Valencia Rose were two of the more famous bars, while Osento (now Reboot Float & Cryo Spa) was a women-only bathhouse in operation from 1980-2008.

To acknowledge this historic neighborhood, and to commemorate Coming Out Day, San Francisco Pride announces our first-ever LGBTQ+ Freedom Day Festival. On Sunday, Oct. 10, from 11 a.m.-6 p.m., enjoy a street fair atmosphere full of exhibitors, food, and entertainment along Valencia between 18th and 21st streets. We're excited to share more details in the weeks to come.

Vendor registration is now open!

In Memoriam: Amb. James Hormel

The Board and staff of San Francisco Pride are deeply saddened to learn of the passing of James Hormel, the first openly LGBTQ+ United States ambassador (to Luxembourg, 1999-2001), a 2005 SF Pride Community Grand Marshal, and a 2010 San Francisco Pride Lifetime Achievement Award recipient.

A philanthropist, a co-founder of the Human Rights Campaign, and a onetime dean of the University of Chicago Law School, the native Minnesotan came out relatively late in life. He faced sustained attacks from the foes of LGBTQ+ liberation throughout his public career, enough to derail a nomination to become Ambassador to Fiji. Footage of Hormel enjoying a performance by the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence at the 1996 SF Pride Parade tarred him as anti-Catholic in the minds of some conservative senators, but in the end his bid for a top diplomatic post prevailed. Hormel, who was 88 years old and living in San Francisco, will be remembered as a kindhearted and generous man, with a long list of achievements.
