Pride 2017 — Peace, love, and 20,000 condoms

Planned Parenthood volunteers, staff, and supporters showed their PRIDE at the 43rd annual San Diego Pride Parade. Planned Parenthood is proud to be part of the LGBT community — many of our patients, staff, volunteers, and supporters are gay, lesbian, transgender, or bisexual people. And we share a fundamental belief that all people should have equal rights, including access to health care.

Close to 150 volunteers distributed 20,000 condoms (the most we’ve ever handed out), 1,000 dental dams, sunscreen, and stickers while others held signs and danced their way through the crowd. Music was provided by DJ Latina. Thank you so much to everyone who helped — whether it was making posters for the big day or participating in the event. Pictures, courtesy of Jeeheon Cho, have been posted to the Planned Parenthood of the Pacific Southwest Facebook page. We hope you had a blast!
