San Diego Pride Remains San Diego Pride

The board of directors of San Diego Pride has voted to keep their name and not change to "America's Pride," which was under consideration. Over the weekend I reported that a petition drive to keep the original name had been launched. (Tipped by JMG reader Eric)

RELATED: New York City Pride has announced that their theme for 2013 will be "Rain To Rainbows" Via press release:
“After years of inequality in this country we are finally turning the course towards receiving full equality. While this won't be achieved overnight we are proud of our community's accomplishments over the last decade and look to the future with a positive stance on the state of LGBT rights. We cannot and we will not forget about the hardships LGBT citizens endure on a daily basis across this country and the world. We will focus on how we can best turn the negative slowly into a positive,” said Chris Frederick, Managing Director of Heritage of Pride. “With the Supreme Court deciding on same-sex marriage days prior to NYC Pride’s largest day we are cautiously optimistic that history will turn in our favor.”
Can you imagine what Pride 2013 will be like if SCOTUS rules for equality?
