Chaz Bono is slated to be the Grand Marshall of the San Francisco gay pride parade on June 26.

This year’s celebration, the city’s 41st, will feature more than 200 parade contingents, 19 stages and celebrity grand marshal Chaz Bono, the author-activist child of Sonny and Cher who wrote of his recent transformation from a woman to a man in his forthcoming book, “Transition.”

Actress Olympia Dukakis will be waving from the backseat of a chauffeured car, as will Yigit Pura from the Bravo television show “Top Chef: Just Desserts.”

The parade kicks off at 10:30 a.m. at Market Street & Beale and ends at Market & 8th Street in downtown San Francisco.
