23 June 2023  — San Francisco, CA: Breanna Sinclairé (, the first transgender woman to sing the American national anthem at a professional sporting event and an internationally acclaimed singer featured in The New York Times, PBS and European and American national media will co-host the San Francisco Pride Show, “Hope, Love, Pride”, this Sunday, June 25 at the invitation of CBS Bay Area on KPIX, Channel 5. The live broadcast begins at 10am, with Breanna hosting the second hour, beginning at 11am. Sinclairé is joined by local business owner and activist Manny Yekutiel who will host the show’s first hour.

“I am so honored to represent San Francisco and the entire LGBTQ+ community as co-host for this Sunday’s show,” Sinclairé said. “I want to thank CBS Bay Area on KPIX for showing their true colors, and standing up and coming out to support the diversity for which San Francisco is celebrated, especially during a time when so many businesses and corporations are backtracking in their support for our communities. This is a perilous time for the LGBTQ+ communities, and such support will not be forgotten.”

Sinclairé made history in June 2015 when she sang the national anthem at the Oakland Athletics Stadium to a crowd of 30,000 for a game between the A’s and the San Diego Padres.  She has since performed the anthem at other sporting events, including for the SF Giants, most recently last week, and the San Francisco Deltas.
