Best pride festivals and parades in US to celebrate LGBTQ rights

Best pride festivals and parades in US to celebrate LGBTQ rights

Pride month is a good time, but it's so much more than a party. And the best pride festivals and parades in the US celebrate LGBTQ rights and history. Remember the Stonewall riots of 1969. Fed up with police raids on gay establishments, the queer community in New York City’s Greenwich Village, led by trans women of color, protested in the streets – and thus Pride was born. Almost five decades later, Pride remains as important a social statement as ever. And this year's celebrations carry the double weight of representing a tentative step towards normality after the pandemic. So, if you want to be part of that movement and you’re wondering where to head for the biggest LGBTQ parties of the year, and when, check out what’s happening in New York City, Los Angeles and other key cities across America.
