Out 4 Justice-- SF Pride 2004
Mon Jun 21 2004
San Francisco Pride 2004
6/27/2004: San Francisco's Pride Week has ended. This weekend, activists continued to rally for justice around the issue of gay marriage, as the Bush and religious right-backed constitutional ammendment redefining marriage is set to appear before the Senate by July 12, and the over 3,000 gay marriages performed in SF last February hang in the balance. Meanwhile, radical queer activists Gay Shame continue their campaign to expose marriage as a tool for patriarchy, covering the city with "Out for Blood" stickers. Many signs and banners at events during the weekend were related to the hung jury and mistrial declared earlier in the week in the case of Gwen Araujo, a murdered transgendered teenager from the Bay Area. Kate Raphael was one of the community activists who were chosen to be Grand Marshals for Sunday's Pride Parade. Not everyone experienced the right to march without trouble, though, as Fresno dealt with homophobic police forces earlier this month.
Events:
-There was a Tranny March on Friday, June 25th (Photos).
-The San Francisco Dyke March 2004 took place on Saturday, June 26. Its theme was "Uprooting Racism." The Rally and Stage Show were held at Dolores Park, from 3:00 p.m until the beginning of the march. The March left Dolores Park at 7:00 p.m. and wound its way through the Mission to the annual Pink Saturday celebration in the streets of the Castro. The march was stated to be "for all dykes and all women," and there were fewer men marching this year than in the past. Men were asked to stand and support from the sidelines. Photos
-Hundreds of thousands of people participated in Pride events over the weekend. The Out 4 Justice Celebration took place both Saturday and Sunday afternoons at Civic Center Plaza.
-The Parade took place Sunday, June 27 , traveling west along Market Street to Eighth Street. Photos: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 Video: 1 | 2 Some organizers believe that this was the first-ever Pride March to include a Poly Contingent. Pacifica Radio had a bicoastal live Pride Broadcast
