The Bay Area Reporter's Pride cover was done by psychologist James LaCroce, Ph.D., the husband of B.A.R. assistant editor Matthew S. Bajko. Commissioned months ago, before the coronavirus pandemic upended our lives, it's now taken on new significance and is a nod to LGBTQ Pride, the resurgence of the Black Lives Matter movement, and AIDS 2020, the now-virtual conference that was to have taken place in San Francisco and Oakland, starting July 6.

While there is no in-person Pride parade this year, for what would have been San Francisco's 50th celebration of the 1969 Stonewall uprising, there are many online events, protest marches, the lighting of the pink triangle, and other activities taking place.

Take a stroll down memory lane with these old B.A.R. Pride section covers.

Whatever you do, stay safe and show your Pride.
