Our Grand Marshals and Honorees represent a mix of individuals and organizations that have made significant contributions to the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender community. With the help of community input, Pride selects these groups and individuals in order to honor the work they have put into furthering the causes of LGBTQ people.
SF Pride believes it is important not to lose sight of what matters most to the LGBTQ community or the people who have fought for decades to make it what it is today. With that said, we are excited to announce SF Pride 50’s Community Grand Marshals, as chosen by the public and by our membership:
Community Grand Marshal (Organization), Public Vote
The LGBT Asylum Project
Community Grand Marshal (Individual), Public Vote
Rev. Dr. Jane Spahr, Founder of the Spahr Center
Community Grand Marshal, Member’s Choice
Terry Beswick, Executive Director of the GLBT Historical Society
We warmly congratulate these first three Community Grand Marshals. (The full slate of Marshals and Honorees will be announced in mid-April.) We look forward to celebrating Pride 50 with you all, and we hope everyone remains healthy and looks out for one another.

In 2016, thanks to the leadership of our Board President, Michelle Meow, and the talented work of filmmaker Jethro Patalinghug, we launched a annual series of short documentaries showcasing the lives and achievements of our Community Grand Marshals and annual Honorees.
