There are two main events for Pride Weekend, and neither is to be missed. Julie Goldman, a self-described New York “butch-lez,” and Ali Mafi, “maybe the world’s only gay Iranian comic,” headline Pride Comedy Night
on Saturday, June 4, at 8pm at the Wells Fargo Center (50 Mark West Springs Road, Santa Rosa; $19–$35; 707.546.3600). The next day sees the fabulously titled celebration Gay Sera, Syrah
, with a morning parade down Main Street in Guerneville and ending with a festival featuring Coyote Grace, Sistahs in the Pit, Ananta, Polkanomics and others on Sunday, June 5, at the Guerneville Lodge (15905 River Road, Guerneville; 12pm; free). For more information, see www.sonomacountypride.org.
