San Francisco has always been on the frontier, has always been on the Left Coast, has always been a place where people have felt free to express themselves, and has always been just a little bit on the wild side of the rest of the Country. The LGBT movement started in San Francisco as the local community held its first annual LGBT Parade in 1971. The LGBT Pride Celebration and Parade are held in San Francisco the last Saturday and Sunday in June and it is a spectacle to behold, with hundreds of groups participating in a variety of ways, from costumed dance groups to all-out floats.
The Chronicle reported in 2006 that it was California's second largest parade, after the Rose Bowl Parade. It's size is indicative of San Francisco's prominence in the nationwide LGBT Pride movement in the United States, but people here will tell you that they can have Pride, and maybe even a parade, or at least a party, any day of the year here in San Francisco. Since the first parade, and to some degree, even before that, there has been a strong, proud, political, and vocal community in San Francisco supporting diversity and civil rights for all of its citizens, crossing all ethnic, racial, and economic lines as well. San Francisco welcomes almost anyone, the one exception being someone who is closed-minded and intolerant of the residents or visitors who might want to participate in all that our city has to offer.
