San Diego History Center receives Peace Award from San Diego Rotary
October 18, 2019
San Diego Rotary presented its 4th Annual Peace Award to us at the San Diego History Center along with SD Pride for our work with the LGBTQ+ community. In partnership with the Lambda Archives of San Diego, we brought “LGBTQ+San Diego: Stories of Struggles and Triumphs” to Balboa Park.
SD Pride festivities have grown from a small grassroots march for equal rights into the largest civic event in the region, with activities that span a full week of celebrating the LGBTQ community. In addition to their annual festivities, San Diego Pride has donated more than $2.5 million to LGBTQ-serving nonprofits and runs multiple year-round education, advocacy and community service programs specifically geared to the region’s military service members.
We were thrilled to be honored along with the incredible SD Pride organization and thankful for San Diego Metro Magazine for covering the news.
