This week is San Luis Obispo Pride, a celebration of the Central Coast LGBTQ+ community. Over the weekend there will be parties, drag performances and Pride in the Plaza, a free festival for the public with live entertainment. Some will also be using the opportunity to raise awareness about issues that continue to impact all communities—including the queer community—such as deportation, racism and gentrification.
