Tracing the Origins

The seeds of LGBTQ+ pride were sown in the aftermath of the Stonewall Riots of June 1969 in New York City, igniting a spark that would fuel the modern-day LGBTQ+ rights movement. What began as localized protests soon blossomed into organized demonstrations across major cities in North America and Europe.

A Rainbow of Celebration

While June holds special significance as Pride Month, cities worldwide host pride events throughout the year. From the colorful extravagance of São Paulo to the spirited marches of Madrid, each celebration reflects the unique cultural tapestry of its host city.

Global Pride Initiatives

Non-profit organizations like InterPride and EuroPride serve as catalysts for pride celebrations globally. InterPride, the visionary behind WorldPride, orchestrates events that transcend borders, fostering connections and solidarity among LGBTQ+ communities worldwide.

The Pride Experience

Attending a pride event is more than just a celebration; it's an immersive journey into the heart and soul of a city's LGBTQ+ community. Whether exploring historic landmarks or soaking up the vibrant atmosphere, pride offers an opportunity to embrace diversity and forge lasting connections.
