The Oakland LGBTQ Community Center's Pride in the Park at Lake Merritt September 11 drew headliner CeCe Peniston, who wowed the crowd. This was the Oakland center's fourth Pride event at the lake, and took place amid the cancellation of the official Oakland Pride parade and festival. Pridefest Oakland took place September 12 on a portion of Broadway at 20th Street and was produced by Port Bar co-owners Sean Sullivan and Richard Fuentes and Oakland Black Pride.
