SAN DIEGO, California -- The City Council on Tuesday proclaimed July as Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Pride Month in San Diego.
Festivities celebrating 40 years of LGBT pride in San Diego are scheduled to take place this weekend in Hillcrest and Balboa Park.
The passage of four decades demonstrates how far the LGBT community has come, in big and small ways, council President Todd Gloria said, noting "small things like the raising of a pride flag in the Gaslamp Quarter."
"Normally, this happens in Hillcrest, but we're now in downtown," he said. "This is a sign of progress, and I thank our mayor for leading that particular effort."
Gloria said it wasn't long ago that not all council members would sign such a proclamation, but they all have in the last few years.
