    Round About – All Over Pride Weekend

    Photos by Rink

    San Francisco Bay Times lead photographer Rink has documented Pride-related events in San Francisco since their inception in the 1970s (and even before that time, when the term “Pride” was not linked to the LGBTQ community). Rink was therefore all over the city during Pride Weekend, Friday through Sunday, June 23–25.

    On Friday evening, Rink joined hosts Lisa Williams and Lawrence Shine and their guests at Ula Restaurant for the Bayard Rustin Coalition’s party honoring the SF Pride Grand Marshals and featuring a fashion show with LiBush International Models from Sacramento.

    At the Pride Festival held in San Francisco’s Civic Center, Rink visited a diverse array of booths, stages, and display areas near City Hall. During the Parade on Sunday, from his favorite vantage points, he photographed contingents making their way on Market Street.

    Later, he visited the SF Pride Main Stage at City Hall for views of the crowd and performers, including representatives from Drag Queen Story Hour, the SF Lesbian/Gay Freedom Band, and many more.

    At the Asian Art Museum on Sunday afternoon, Rink joined SF Pride leaders and guests for the annual VIP Reception.
