The San Diego Community College District will show its support for the region’s LGBTQIA community when students, faculty, and classified professionals march under the district banner at the San Diego Pride Parade at 10 a.m. on July 20, 2024.

The Progress Pride flag has the rainbow pride with black and brown stripes to represent marginalized LGBTQ+ communities of color, along with the colors pink, light blue and white, which are used on the Transgender Pride Flag flag with The annual San Diego Pride Parade is the largest single-day civic event in the region and is among the largest Prides in the United States, attracting over 300,000 people. This year's theme is Making History Now. This is a free community event. All are welcome. 

The parade 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 300 SDCCD participants. Parking is available at the City College parking structure. Free shuttle service will run between the Old Naval Hospital on President’s Way to the start of the parade route.

San Diego’s Pride Parade has grown from when 400 or so people marched and rallied in Balboa Park to celebrate the LGBT community in June of 1974. It follows LGBT Pride Month, celebrated each June to commemorate the Stonewall riots in New York, which occurred at the end of June 1969.
