In a year when San Antonio is celebration 300 years with an emphasis on building a community on inclusion, we’re excited to bring this celebration of differences to the streets of our beloved city.

Held on the streets of downtown San Antonio, where many parades have taken place, the Disability Pride Parade demonstrates our efforts to “develop a whole community of people with disabilities and allies who are proud to be who we are, who do not see ourselves as victims, who expect more from ourselves and those within our community, and who are committed to building an inclusive community that recognizes the dignity, humanity, and worth of all people.”

One in every 7.5 people living in San Antonio has a disability. These individuals were either born with a disability, were injured resulting in a disability or acquired a disability through the process of aging.

The San Antonio Disability Pride Parade is a public expression of the belief that disability is a natural and beautiful part of human diversity in which people living with disabilities can take pride. This a parade and march through the streets of San Antonio will help elevate understanding to change the way people think about and define disability so that we can end the internalized shame among people living with disabilities.

Disability Pride represents a rejection of the notion that our physical, sensory, mental, and cognitive differences from the temporarily-abled standard are wrong or bad in any way, and is a statement of self-acceptance, dignity and pride. While over 17 cities have put on Pride Parades since the first one held in 1990, there are only around 8 active parades across the nation today.
