JULY 2, 2011
Seven years ago, Carlos Vela envisioned a Pride event that would inspire and embolden the GLBT community. Today, Vela's vision, Gay Pride S.A., has grown from a block party festival and street procession to a full-blown Pride organization that hosts over 10 official events each year.
This year, Gay Pride S.A. will move to Crockett
Park. There will be food, fun for all including families, and a stage
show featuring legendary recording artist Martha Wash who will perform
her new release “I’ve Got You” as well as her famous
hit “It’s Raining Men."
In keeping with the idea of San Antonio’s gay Fourth of July celebration, Gay Pride S.A. ends with a fireworks spectacular appropriately named 'Pride In The Sky' sponsored by The Patron Spirits Company.
