OCR: OC Pride parade and festival ‘Stand Up and Stand Out’ in Saturday’s 30th anniversary event
The grand marshal for the parade was Brit Cervantes, a program coordinator for the UC Irvine Health Pediatric Gender Diversity Program, which helps children and young adults through their gender transition.
After the parade, more than 100 vendors and concerts welcomed the festival goers on 3rd Street.
The event’s theme this year was “Stand Up and Stand Out.” Organizers said they chose the theme because they saw the event as an opportunity for the county’s LGBTQ community to be recognized.
This year marks the 30th anniversary of the county’s first pride parade and festival.
