Our favorite holiday of the year is almost here!

Cities throughout the United States are gearing up for Pride Month festivals, community events, and parades, which will feature amazing food, entertainment, and, of course, fabulous floats. We can’t wait!

With the very idea of Pride under attack as the Republican Party enacts inhumane anti-LGBTQ+ laws across the country, it is important, now more than ever, to celebrate our collective queer joy and Pride. This collective celebration gives us all a safe place to wear our queerness and sexuality on our sleeve, a time and place to gather together and build community, a way to acknowledge the hard work of LGBTQ+ activists of the past and spotlight work still left to do and to honor queer community members who have passed.

Plus, it’s a month-long party, and who doesn’t love that? So whether you’re into partying all night, watching a drag show, or marching through the streets to protest and celebrate, there is a Pride event for you.

Don't see an event you're excited about? Email us at news@equalpide.com and we'll add it to the calendar.
