"There's a movement to make it a little more political this year. But if we tone it down because of what others might think of us, we don't deserve to use the word pride."

-- Mikayla Connell, president of San Francisco Pride's board of directors, about trying to strike a balance between being a political event and a celebration of all things LGBT-related
