Pride celebrations in the East Bay have had a stop-and-start history. A decade ago, Peggy Moore noticed that many of her fellow revelers at SF Pride had commuted into the city from the East Bay, and she decided to start an Oakland pride event which grew into the venerable, grassroots-organized Sistahs Steppin' In Pride dyke march; Sistahs Steppin' took place annually until a couple of years ago, which Moore announced would sadly be the last. Meanwhile, East Bay Pride took place from 1997 until 2004, then petered out. A few years ago, Oakland City councilmembers took the lead to revive an East Bay pride tradition, and the current incarnation of Oakland Pride was born. Come celebrate and support the 4th Annual Oakland Pride event today, and dance to live music by inimitable performers like En Vogue and LaToya London.
