    Oakland Pride 2023

    With “Fuel the Power of Pride” as the theme, Oakland Pride and Pridefest joined forces to produce the largest ever Pride celebration in Oakland on Sunday, September 9.

    A parade on Broadway kicked off the day led by the Oakland Pride float and a series of contingents representing service and advocacy organizations, businesses, and performing arts groups. The festival’s large footprint featured exhibit booths offering information, healthcare services, food & beverage, and merchandise for sale; all extended over a multi-block area in downtown Oakland. Among the special sections were the Children’s Area, Health Pavilion, Sober Area, Senior Area, Latinx Stage, and Main Stage.

    San Francisco Bay Times volunteer coordinator Juan R. Davila and his team created and staffed the Bay Times booth near the Main Stage where free copies of the paper were distributed and a photo step and repeat area was enjoyed by festival goers. Special thanks to Lisa Williams of Oakland Pride!
