Worldwide Pride Events

Jun 1, 2016
2016

Ever since the modern gay rights movement was born following the Stonewall riots of 1969, annual gay pride celebrations have provided an important symbol of LGBT visibility and progress in an ever-growing number of cities around the world. And this year is no exception. In North America, top destinations for LGBT pride celebrations include New York City, where this year’s NYC Pride takes place June 19–26, with top draws including the official March, PrideFest and Dance on the Pier. Also big on the calendar is Pride Toronto, which this year celebrates a number of firsts: It’s the first time the event has been extended to fill the entire month of June, the first time the rainbow flag — a symbol of the LGBT community — will fly over City Hall and the first time a sitting prime minister will participate in the pride parade. The largest overall LGBT pride celebration in the world continues to be the Parada do Orgulho LGBT (LGBT Pride Parade) in São Paulo, Brazil, which attracts more than 4 million participants and viewers. This year’s celebration takes place the first week in June, with the main parade June 5. Also noteworthy in Latin America is the Marcha del Orgullo Gay in Mexico City, which — while much smaller than São Paulo’s event (last year attracting about 100,000 people) — nevertheless boasts a festive spirit, with a parade and concert on the last Saturday in June. Across the Atlantic, the most international LGBT celebration, EuroPride, takes place in a different city every year. This year, Amsterdam plays host, with more than 200 events scheduled for July 23–Aug. 7, including the European Human Rights concert and the Canal Parade with some 80 LGBT organizations participating in a photo-worthy procession of floats. Every corner of the world offers its own version of an LGBT pride celebration. In the Middle East, the largest such gathering takes place in Tel Aviv June 1–4, while the Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras slated for March 2017 is Australia’s colorful contribution. WorldPride, a global celebration organized by InterPride, an international organization that aims to empower local gay pride organizations, will happen in Madrid in 2017.
