Pride Month is marked by an array of significant events across the globe. Many people travel abroad and within the United States to places like New York City to revel in Pride parades and pre-planned festivities. When you think of Pride, you may think of the lavish floats at parades and private events, but to be completely transparent, the month and yearlong celebration is more than what meets the eye. The significance of the major and minor gatherings point to a safe space for the many individuals who make up the LGBTQ+ community.

Earlier this month, Brazil hosted its annual Pride parade which according to CBS attracted hundreds of thousands of individuals of the LGBTQ+ community. The São Paulo gathering followed the theme: “Power for the LGBT — Our Vote, Our Voice” as the country’s national elections will take place this year in October.

Back in May, SweetHeat Miami hosted its yearly celebration in the city’s historic South Beach area. The array of events created by entrepreneur DJ Dimples is known by many as the largest multicultural, women-centric gathering in the world. The Miami New Times shared that this year for its 10 year anniversary a crowd of 55,000 individuals participated in the 16 festivities which took place over a six-day period.

This year, New York City’s Pride March will feature a special float designed by Alexander Wang. Earlier this week, we shared a look at the designer’s collaborative capsule created with Trojan Condoms, dubbed “Protect Your Wang.” Along the route which starts from the West Village at 16th Street and 7th Ave, Wang and his friends will be handing out goodies from the collab.

Below, we’ve tallied up the top Pride events happening through the end of June and later this year in the U.S. and abroad. Take a look and share in the comments what your favorite events of Pride Month are.
