UCSF Celebrates ‘Generations of Impact’ at San Francisco Pride Parade

Handing out sunscreen on an unusually sunny San Francisco summer day and carrying signs about supporting HIV research, members of the UC San Francisco community proudly marched in the 2019 San Francisco Pride Parade with a contingent of 300 people.

This year’s San Francisco Pride Parade, with the theme “Generations of Resistance,” was held on Market Street on Sunday. The parade was held as events nationwide in June marked the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall uprising that sparked the modern LGBTQ rights movement.

UCSF’s Pride theme was “Generations of Impact,” highlighting the University’s decades-long commitment to the LGBTQ community and our leadership in HIV research.

The UCSF Alliance Health Project, Ward 86 at Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital, and Gladstone Institutes had a strong presence in the UCSF contingent, that stretched almost one block long as the group marched through downtown.   
UCSF marchers held signs “Support HIV Research: Find a Cure” and signed postcards to Congress asking for support of HIV research.
