And finally, here is part III of SFist's attempt to round up all the LGBT happenings going down about town this weekend, and this installment covers the big, hot, heaving climax of this year's festivities: the 40th Annual Gay Freedom Day march and celebration, also known as SF Pride. (There's some controversy among the LGBTQs about whether we really still need to associate ourselves with one of the Seven Deadly Sins, and maybe we should go back to emphasizing freedom over pride, but we digress. No comment about this year's theme: "40 and Fabulous.")

Without further ado, here's a Sunday guide, and if you're still looking for stuff to do today and tonight, see our Saturday guide. (Photos above by Darwin Bell)

Sunday, June 27

pride-40.jpg The day kicks off with the parade, with the Dykes on Bikes revving their engines and rolling out from Market and Beale at 10:30 a.m., followed quickly by the slightly quieter, more eco-friendly Mikes on Bikes. Celebrity Grand Marshals this year include novelist Alice Walker, who'll be near the front, the Backstreet Boys (minus Kevin Richardson), DADT activist Zoe Dunning, and Andy Bell from Erasure. Celebrity guests this year include Rupaul's Drag Race breakout star Ongina, trans actress/activist Calpernia Adams, and Noah's Arc star Darryl Stephens. (See the PDF of the full parade lineup, which contains over 170 contingents.)
