Today marks the beginning of Pride in San Diego, a weekend full of acceptance and tolerance, fun, and of course, fabulous fashion. The LGBT community has come very far in recent years, and continues to make strives towards equality. What started from a yard sale and a potluck in 1974 has turned into a huge celebration in the San Diego community, garnering nearly 200,000 people from all over. This high attendance over the Pride weekend has been lucrative for our local economy with the continued support and participation from local businesses. We will be there this year, celebrating and enjoying the diversity that is Pride, so check back next week for photos, blogs and a round-up about this years San Diego Pride.
