Fresh off an NBA title win, and subsequent victory parade through the streets of Oakland, Golden State Warriors president and COO Rick Welts will be waving to an adoring crowd once again during San Francisco’s Pride Parade.
On the celebration’s 45th anniversary, San Francisco Pride chose Welts to be the Celebrity Grand Marshal.
“SF Pride is excited to bestow this honor on America’s first prominent, openly-gay sports executive,” organizers said on its website.
The parade is scheduled for 10:30 a.m. on Sunday and will go down Market Street in downtown San Francisco.
