San Francisco Historical Society Celebrates the 50th Anniversary of San Francisco’s LGBT Pride Celebration

Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, San Francisco’s Pride Parade has been cancelled this year. There was an online celebration on Saturday June 27 and on Sunday June 28: San Francisco Pride’s 2020 Online Celebration.

As this week’s Online History Adventure, we are sharing a selection of photographs taken by Ron Hengeller. Ron took these photographs over the past 36 years of Pride celebrations.

We are presenting the images as a full-format image gallery on a separate page, which plays automatically, like a slideshow (click HERE or on the image below to start the gallery).
* NOTE: move your mouse off screen to hide navigation buttons; your keyboard’s left and right arrows can advance the images back or forward; close the page tab when finished.

We hope you enjoy the show!
