Join “United in Spirit” in the San Francisco
Pride Parade June 28th, 2015!

God is love and God loves everyone. We march because we want to share this message and that there are churches and religious leaders who welcome and celebrate our queer brothers and sisters. We look forward to the transformation of all religious communities so LGBT people are celebrated everywhere. – Michael Leslie, UIS Coordinator

For more than twenty-five years, our contingent of Northern California churches, religious leaders and people of faith has affirmed and celebrated LGBT people in the San Francisco Pride Parade. In recent years, churches/denominations represented have included American Baptist, Congregational (UCC), Disciples (DOC), Presbyterian (PCUSA, More Light, CPC), Catholic, Methodist (UMC), Unitarian (UU), and Metropolitan Community Churches (MCC).

We gather to march on the last Saturday of June in San Francisco.  As crowds line the sidewalks of Market Street, we celebrate all the colors of the rainbow and community. We share a message of love and acceptance. We smile, dance and bless the crowds as we carry our church banners and LGBTQ affirming signs. Please join us, invite your friends and church family, and lend us your prayers and blessings.

This year’s contingent is sponsored by Metropolitan Community Church of San Francisco (provided insurance coverage and church members donated the parade registration fees) and Dignity/San Francisco (provided the Cable Car). Please let us know if your church, presbytery or association would be interested in sponsoring next year’s contingent.
