It’s Pride Fest this weekend! The festival and parade are expected to bring thousands of revelers out and about all over town in celebration of this year’s theme: the 50th Anniversary of the Annual Reminders picketing of Independence Hall (July 4 1965 – July 4, 1969). It’s gonna be bonkers. It always is. This year’s headliner: The Nanny!
But in Philly, the pride don’t end when the festival does. According to a recent study conducted by the folks over at NerdWallet, Philly ranks among the top 10 LGBT-friendly cities in the United States, and “tied for the highest score in the Human Rights Campaign Municipal Equality Index” for its “nondiscrimination and relationship recognition policies, LGBT services and relationship with the community.”
