Gay Pride Weekend at City Center, 6/28-29

Saturday and Sunday
June 28 - 29, 2014

The Saturday dharma talk will honor Gay Pride Weekend, and there will be a San Francisco Zen Center contingent at the Gay Pride Parade.


We are in need of volunteers to act as contingent monitors who will monitor the safety of our group of parade participants. This requires a one-hour training prior to the day of the parade. If you are interested in volunteering for the event please email Dan Belsky at ccwork@sfzc.org.

Participate by walking or riding in the parade with the SFZC float, handing out flyers and carrying banners. While waiting for the parade to start, we will be decorating the “floating zendo.” There may be time to watch part of the parade before we start marching. We will bring water and snacks for everyone, but you may want to bring some of your own.

Let’s celebrate the LGBTIQ community at the San Francisco Pride Parade!


8:00 am: Meet at City Center for breakfast.

8:50 am: Gather supplies, leave City Center, and head over to our parade staging spot, which will be downtown on Beale St., between Market St. and Mission St—in the Q2 quadrant, line-up number 196.

9:45 am: Start setting up and decorating ourselves and our float!
