Join NCLR for Pride in June!

June 1, 2017

Mark your calendars!  NCLR is participating in a lot of fabulous Pride activities and if you’re in the Bay Area (or plan on visiting!), we’d love for you to join us.  From marching alongside NCLR Executive Director Kate Kendell and NCLR founder Donna Hitchens at our contingent at SF Pride to the Frameline Film Festival to the Dyke March, NCLR is going to be all over the Bay Area for Pride. We’ve created a list of our activities below, so mark your calendars. We hope you can join us!  

Join the NCLR Contingent at SF Pride!
In honor of our 40th anniversary, NCLR Exeutive Director Kate Kendell and NCLR founder Donna Hitchens will be leading the NCLR contingent at SF Pride, and we want you to march with us for this historic event! NCLR will be receiving the
Heritage of Pride Award from SF Pride this year for our 40 years of service to the community. SF Pride takes place Sunday, June 25th and if you’re interested in marching with us, we’d love to see you!

SF Dyke March
What started in 1993 as a small celebration has evolved into one of San Francisco’s most popular Pride events. If you’d like to join NCLR for the SF Dyke March, come say hi to us on Saturday, June 24th at our booth and stay for the march beginning at 5pm sharp. Full details are still coming, so mark your calendars now!

Community Conversation – Unleash The Power: Collective Self-Care
NCLR will be joining Queer Women of Color Media Arts Project (QWOCMAP) for a community conversation that shares the deep resilient wisdom of lesbian, bisexual, transgender, queer, and gender variant people of color. This panel of community resources is a survival toolkit for our vulnerable communities in a time of political vitriol and violence. Please join us Sunday, June 11th at 4pm at Brava Theater for the Arts (2781 24th Street). For full details,

Join NCLR at Frameline Film Festival
NCLR will be co-presenting Alabama Bound, which depicts the real-life journey of a lesbian couple in a deeply conservative state, as well as Dispatches from Cleveland, a compelling documentary directed by Catherine Gund.  Alabama Bound premieres June 17th at 11am at the Victoria Theater, and Dispaches from Cleveland screens June 20th at 9:15pm at the Roxie.
