We're not actually done marveling about that, because now 1984 is 26 years ago, which seems incredible to us. But now we're also marveling that it has been a year since the last Long Beach Lesbian & Gay Pride.
Or rather, let us make the most of our time, and enjoy the Long Beach Lesbian & Gay Pride celebration, and friends, and community spirit. The 2010 Pride happens on Saturday, May 15 and Sunday, May 16; the theme is One Heart One World One Pride. There will be all sorts of to-dos clustered around Shoreline Drive, and much music, and the famous parade, which marches on Sunday, May 16 at 10:30 a.m.
As we mentioned last year, the Pride people report a large number showing for the weekend, which is no surprise. There will be around 80,000 participants, give or take. Best carpool, or train it, or figure out your ride.
