The UCSD LGBT community again sponsored an entry into San Diego's Lesbian and Gay Pride Parade. Our contingent reflected this year's theme "Diversity Creates Community" with it composition of staff, faculty, students, family, and friends representing the Main Campus, Healthcare including the Medical Centers and the School of Medicine and the Scripps Institution of Oceanography.

Riding in our contingent's convertible this year were Michael L. Marx and Donald K. Marshall, strong allies of the UCSD LGBT community, having supported it through numerous scholarships. As always, the Schaefer ambulance was with us, supplying sirens and lights to set the festive mood (and providing back up support for parade safety!)
