San Diego Pride weekend is almost here; it is coming up the weekend after this one. And what I like to call “pre-Pride” has begun.

As has happened in past years, local Pride-themed kick-off events are already occurring, over a week before the actual event. As you can see below, there are about a dozen or so of these pre-Pride events occurring between now and next Thursday, so, grab your booty shorts and get out there … it has officially begun!

And stay tuned next for next week’s massive Ultimate Pride Guide, for all the actual Pride weekend events. But for now … happy pre-Pride!
