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."

Grand Marshals for 2011 Pride Parade are 2010 GLAAD Media Award winner, Will Phillips and Mike Ruiz of TV’s The A-List New York, RuPaul’s Drag Race, and America’s Next Top Model.

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.
