Out in the Bay, Local Public Radio's weekly interview program on LGBT topics, is thrilled to be beneficiary of the San Francisco FrontRunners 33rd Annual Pride Run, June 23. The 5- and 10-kilometer runs -- and 200-meter kiddies' run -- in scenic Golden Gate Park attract nearly 500 participants for a healthy kick-off to Pride Weekend. Meet former 49er David Kopay - official race starter -  and enjoy entertainment and brunch after the run.  All included in entry fee, along with your very own pair of Pride Run shorts!

For nearly two decades, this fun event has doubled as a fundraiser for worthy non-profits. Net proceeds from this year's Pride Run will go to Out in the Bay to further Out in the Bay's mission of broadcasting the stories of LGBT people to a general audience, advancing civil rights by opening hearts and minds.* 

Help Out in the Bay get full benefit from the Pride Run by running June 23 or volunteering on the day of the run or in the weeks leading up to it.   Learn more and register:  If you have any questions or can't find the info you need, contact Out in the Bay producer Eric Jansen.
