New this year is an expansion of Pride Sunday (June 26, 2011), a full hour earlier than in previous years. This year's headliners for Sunday’s Main Stage in Civic Center include comedienne Sandra Bernhard on Sunday, June 26 as well as exciting, up-and-coming cutting-edge talent, world-renowned performers, and the best of local entertainment from the Bay Area.
The SF Pride Main Stage has been host to The Backstreet Boys, Lady Gaga, BoA, Fey, The Cliks, Kat Deluna, Inaya Day, Crystal Waters, Me'shell Ndegeocello, leaders from the frontlines of the same-sex marriage fight, and many others.
