SDCCD to walk in annual Pride Parade
May 24, 2022 |
Students, faculty, and staff from the San Diego Community College District will march under the district banner at the annual Pride Parade on Saturday, July 16, one of the largest in the country with up to 100,000 spectators expected. This year’s parade theme is "Justice with Joy!"
The SDCCD has had a presence in the annual parade since it began more than 40 years ago, but will be the sixth year the district marches together as a contingent. Members of the district’s Board of Trustees will take part in the celebration, and representatives from every college – City, Mesa, and Miramar, along with the College of Continuing Education – will be there, too.
The parade is set to start at 11 a.m. It follows a 1.5-mile-route beginning at the Hillcrest Pride Flag at University Avenue and Normal Street, continues west on University Avenue, turns south on Sixth Avenue and left onto Balboa Drive and ends at Quince Drive.
Free T-shirts will be provided to the first 200 SDCCD participants. Free shuttle service will run between the Old Naval Hospital on President’s Way to the start of the parade route.
