Saturday Links: San Francisco Lights Up in Celebration of Pride Weekend


  • Various SF structures were glowing in all sorts of colors to honor this weekend’s Pride festivities. City Hall was glowing pink, blue, and an off-white; SFO was boasting a rainbow hue; the Pink Triangle was still emanating a pink light (courtesy of thousands of LEDs); there was a literal rainbow beam shooting through downtown SF from the Ferry Building Friday evening — and it was glorious.

  • The stretch of the Pacific Ocean along San Francisco is the coldest it’s been in over a decade. The waters off Bodega Bay are, on average, three degrees cooler than usual during June, which is historically the month that coincides with the coldest-recorded water temperature for the area; “upwelling” — the phenomena where high winds churn up colder deep-sea water and bring it to the surface — is thought to be the main reason behind these frigid readings.

  • A growing list of companies — which now includes Microsoft, Meta, and Apple — will pay for employees’ travel to states where abortions are legal after SCOTUS struck down Roe v. Wade Friday morning. [ABC7]
  • San Jose just gave the OK for construction to start on a sprawling redevelopment plan on the west side of town that will see at least 2,000 housing units added to the City’s stock, as well as a bevy of green roofs. [Hoodline]
  • While it may seem despondent at times, climate activism is working and changing the discourse around the climate crisis — it is just not “happening fast enough.” [Mongabay]
  • And this headline in today’s Opinion section of the NYT says it all: “The End of Roe Is Just the Beginning.” [New York Times]
