Each year pride events are held nationwide in cities large and small, and for some Americans, it is the only occasion where they can be out and proud in their community. Pride festivals and parades are a celebration of the progress the LGBTQ community has made, but also a time to recognize the distance we still have to go to achieve full equality. This year, we recognize the 50th Anniversary of the Stonewall Riots and the uprising which followed — marking the beginning of the fight for true equality.
Meet us in the staging area between 11am and noon on Saturday, June first. At noon, we'll march together. When we arrive in Public Square, we'll celebrate.
Same-sex marriage may be the law of the land, but before wedding bells chime, there's the dating scene. For all LGBT singles out there, it's easier than ever to navigate a city's gay community. The data was compiled by focusing on factors such as the percentage of single people; the size of the LGBT community; the Municipal Equality Index MEIwhich rates cities based on their equality in relation to the gay community and is compiled by civil rights organization the Human Rights Campaign; bars perpeople; and the cost of a single drink.
Depending on the country or city where the event is being held, the marches and parades often campaign for recognition and acceptance of same-sex marriage, legal protections for couples and families, anti-discrimination laws or trans rights. As the years went on, additional cities in North America and Europe began to hold their own public demonstrations or pride day, eventually leading to what we know today as a gay pride parade, march, celebration or festival. This event calendar includes more than listings, but you can sort and filter the list by region and date to determine where you want to go or when to plan your trip. While events take place throughout the year, the majority take place during the months of June, July and August.
