Trans drag performer Pearl Teese, center, performed at the Tenderloin Pride Festival Saturday, June 19. The Tenderloin Merchants Association and the San Francisco Community Health Center produced the festival, the first during June's Pride Month. It also marked the first federal recognition of the Juneteenth holiday, which observes the end of slavery in the U.S. In addition to drag performances, there were vendor booths, food, and other entertainment.
