June means many things in San Francisco—winter, asparagus-overload, summer street festivals—but most of all it means Pride. Leading up to 2011's Pride Weekend (June 25–26), we asked some of San Francisco's most beloved drag ambassadors to write on the question: "What does Pride mean to you?" We've published an essay from Heklina, host of Trannyshack and one from Cookie Dough, host of The Monster Show. This week, the scribe is Peaches Christ, the mind behind the cult film All About Evil and creator of the legendary Midnight Mass series. We'll be publishing one essay a week until Pride weekend.
In San Francisco, Pride season takes up the entire month of June and has become a gigantic, sometimes overwhelming event. It’s impossible to take it all in so I choose to enjoy my favorite parts of it year after year. There’s something for everyone for sure, and I think whether you’re trans, lesbian, bi, gay, or even straight, everyone can find a way to enjoy and celebrate Pride Season in San Francisco.
