The Ultimate Guide to 2022 Gay Pride Events

Travel Tips | Jim Werner | June 1, 2022 | Homepage

Break out the rainbow flags, it’s Pride season!

Pride celebrates our freedom and promotes equality in this great country (thank you, Stonewall rioters.) However, we cannot ignore that it’s still rough for our community – especially our Trans brothers and sisters. There is a lot more to do, and we need to show up and proudly proclaim our rights and our life.

So, start researching your Pride getaway here. Then pack your bags, let your flag fly high and let everyone know: We’re here! We’re queer! And we won’t give up until our whole community has equal rights!

Pride Highlights:

Key West, FL – June 1-5

Key West Pride is part-vacation, part-celebration, and part-protest with this year’s theme: “Don’t say gay, SHOUT it!” — which is a direct protest against Florida’s homophobic Republican-passed “Don’t Say Gay” law.

Los Angeles, CA – June 11-12

As it does most things, this city puts its own distinct spin on Pride. And don’t forget: LA is normally gayer than a bareback orgy with a drag-show accompaniment. So, expect Pride to up the ante.

Providence, RI (Rhode Island Pride) – June 18

The country’s smallest state proves that size isn’t everything. Sometimes it’s the smaller cities that have the bigger Prides.

New York City, NY – June 25-26

I recognize that New York City is an obvious choice, but you really should experience Pride in a very gay city — one that gets even gayer at the end of June. This year promises it will not disappoint with thousands of people descending on Gotham.
