Interim Chancellor Susan Lamb was among a contingent of City College students, faculty and administrators taking part in San Francisco’s 2015 Pride parade on June 28 that attracted more than one million onlookers for the five-hour celebration.
This year’s celebration was particularly historic and festive. Days earlier the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that gay marriages nationally could not be banned. Everyone was in a party spirit and many held signs acknowledging the court decision.
City College’s 75-member contingent sported specially made T-shirts honoring Pride Day and the college. Students and faculty holding a 12-foot wide red banner reading City College of San Francisco led the contingent.
Trustees, Rafael Mandelman and Amy Bacharach also joined Lamb in a red convertible waving to the crowd, while City College celebrants held up signs reading, “Enroll Now CCSF.edu” and “Cheer If You Gone To CCSF.”
City College’s contingent included representatives from automotive technology, music, construction management, and disabled student program & services, as well as a festive rag-tag marching band.
