This coming weekend, June 25th and 26th, marks the 41st anniversary of the San Francisco Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender Pride Celebration and Parade. With over 200 parade contingents, 300 exhibitors, and 19 stages and venues, the San Francisco LGBT Pride Celebration and Parade is the largest LGBT gathering in the nation.
The SF Pride Celebration will be held in downtown San Francisco in Civic Center at the foot of San Francisco’s historic City Hall. Make sure to look for the Fog Rugby Recruitment and Beer Booths while celebrating the diversity that makes our club and our city so uniquely extraordinary! The money earned by the club over this weekend is one of the largest resources for our yearly budget — your support is greatly appreciated!
Place: SF Pride Celebration, Civic Center
Date: Saturday, June 25th and Sunday, June 26th
Time: 11:00am to 6:00pm

Come represent San Francisco Fog RFC as we support the release of With You, a documentary honoring our fallen brother, Mark Bingham. If attending, it is recommended that you wear a white button-down shirt and fog tie.
Description: WITH YOU is a feature length documentary focusing on the unique bond between a mother and son and how it was ultimately strengthened by the tragedy of 9/11. The film explores the lives of Mark Bingham, one of the heroes of United Flight 93 on September 11, 2001, and his mother, Alice Hoagland, a former United Airlines flight attendant. Devastated by her loss but inspired by the memory of her son, Alice becomes a nationally known authority on airline safety and a champion of LGBT rights across the country. Within the shadow of a national tragedy, With You illuminates a personal story of love, loss and the true nature of heroism.
Pre-screening meet & greet:
Come meet members of the SF Fog RFC for drinks at Toad Hall before attending the “With You” screening, 2:00-3:15PM.
