The Third Annual SF Pride Golf Tournament
and Fundraiser Netted More Than $45,000

San Francisco Pride is proud to report that in addition to that record-breaking amount of money, we received an additional anonymous $50,000 gift from a member of the PGA for our efforts to champion LGBTQ+ representation in professional sports. This conclusively demonstrates that the golf world, long considered slow to change, is actually embracing the work of SF Pride and other LGBTQ+ activists in the sports world.

A warm thank-you to everyone who attended, and to our gracious host at TPC Harding Park. We can't wait to see everyone out again in 2022!

The Ken Jones Awards Recognized Five LGBTQ+ Leaders

On Thursday, Oct. 14, the Hilton San Francisco Union Square was the generous host venue for San Francisco Pride's awards assembly, which raised more than $5,700 for the organization. SF Pride was thrilled for the opportunity to acknowledge a new generation leaders in the Bay Area's LGBTQ+ communities. We were also pleased to gather in the name of SF Pride's “godfather of diversity," Ken Jones.

The Theme for #SFPRIDE2022 Is "Love Will Keep Us Together."

One of the central values of San Francisco Pride has always been treating one another with respect and love, so our members chose this sweet and absolutely accurate sentiment as the theme for next year's San Francisco Pride.

Think back on the events of the last 20 months and ask yourself if it isn't 100 percent true. Thank you to everyone who voted!

#SFPRIDE2022 will be held on Saturday and Sunday, June 25-26, 2022.
