(SAN DIEGO) San Diego Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender Pride will move from its existing Hillcrest office on Robinson Street to a larger, modern space in North Park’s cabaret and arts district on November 11.
The new office, located three blocks south of University Avenue at 3620 30th St., will have conference and training rooms, a patio, and ample street parking. It is also easily accessible by public transport. The P.O. Box mailing address and telephone numbers for the organization will remain the same.
"Pride has experienced an explosive growth in the number of activism and awareness programs since we moved into our previous office 12 years ago,” says San Diego Pride Executive Director Ron deHarte. “These new offices will provide us with adequate space for the legions of volunteers required to produce programs such as the Equality Torch Relay, Rainbow Flag Project, Walk for Equality as well as the annual parade and festival.”
San Diego Pride recently announced its 2010 theme: “One Heart, One World, One Pride,” adopted from InterPride’s global theme. For 35 years, San Diego Pride has been a tireless advocate for equality and diversity. Core programs focus on activism and awareness, community services, youth, the environment and HIV/AIDS supportive services. The organization also produces the annual parade and festival, which have grown from a small grass roots march for equal rights, into the largest equal rights events in San Diego County.
Next year’s Pride weekend is scheduled for July 17 and 18.
