San Diego City Council declares July LGBT Pride Month

SAN DIEGO -- The City Council Tuesday declared July as Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Pride Month in the city of San Diego.

A proclamation, presented by councilmen Carl DeMaio and Todd Gloria, calls San Diego a "trailblazing city" led by Mayor Jerry Sanders, who frequently speaks out on behalf of marriage equality.

Gloria said the council unanimously supported the change of the name of a Hillcrest roadway to Harvey Milk Street and a 65-foot pole in the center of the city's LGBT community that will fly a rainbow flag.

"San Diego is at the forefront of LGBT rights," Gloria said.
