Oakland Pride 2011 this Sunday at 19th and Franklin
Oakland Pride 2011, this year celebrating the theme “We Are Family,” takes place Sunday, Sept. 4, 11 a.m. to 7 p.m., centered at 19th and Franklin Streets in uptown Oakland.
Billed as the Bay Area’s second largest and most diverse celebration of lesbian, bisexual, gay, transgender and intersex pride, Oakland Pride features more than 75 artists on four separate stages on the sunny side of the bay. Last year’s event attracted more than 50,000 attendees.
Due to the proximity of the event to UCOP’s 20th Street facility, anyone planning to work on Sunday should be aware of traffic congestion and parking limitations and may want to consider public transit alternatives.
