The end of June does not mean the end of Pride. Now more than ever, we need to spotlight and celebrate the LGBT community — every day, all year long. We can’t let the current state of politics bring down our people, our culture, our lives. We’re bruised, but now, we’re stronger. Let’s prove it at these post-June Pride events.
Pride Highlights After June:
San Diego Pride, July 13-15, 2018
The coastal town sheds its laid-back vibe for three days of pomp, parties and parades. The short list: Spirit of Stonewall Rally at Balboa Park and Pride of Hillcrest Block Party on Friday; Pride Parade and the two-day, multi-stage Pride Music Festival where DJs turns the town into a dance party.
Austin Pride, August 11, 2018
You should mess with Texas this August. The eight-day Werk Fashion Show leads up to the Pride Festival, with musical performers, entertainers, games, a family zone and 150 at Fiesta Gardens, and the evening Pride Parade.
Atlanta Pride Festival, October 12-14, 2018
Practice your parade strut at the Trans March and the Dyke March on Saturday, and then hit the biggest Pride Parade in the southeast on Sunday. For eight days leading up to the weekend, Out on Film puts LGBT stories on the big screen. And we look good.
