The LGBTQ+ community has been fighting for their rights and recognition for many years. The first Pride Parade was held in June of 1970, after the Stonewall Riots. It was held in New York City and was organized by the Gay Liberation Front. It was a protest against police brutality against LGBTQ+ people. The parade became a yearly event and it is now celebrated in many countries around the world.
Pride festivals are usually organized by members of the LGBTQIA+ community, their supporters, and other allied groups.
It's not just about celebrating the achievements made by the LGBTQ+ community but also about remembering those who were killed during the struggle for equality. And that's why this Pride Month is so important - it's a time to remember, celebrate, and fight for our rights.
If you are planning to attend any Pride Festival, it is important to know what to expect. This article will cover what you need to do before the event.
1. Take a look at the festival’s website and social media pages.
You will find information that will help you plan your trip such as where to park, where the festival is located and how much tickets cost. The easiest way to find pride events near you is to search for your city name + pride on Google.
2. Next it's time to get your outfit together.
This is an important part of the preparation process because it will be what people see first and remember most about you. The best way to go about this is to think about what message you want to send with your outfit and then choose clothing that supports that message.
A good place to shop for your pride outfit is on Gays+ Store, the world's biggest and best shop for pride festival outfits, products and accessories.
Be sure to wear comfortable clothes. You don't want to be too hot or too cold, and you don't want clothes that will restrict your movement. And don't forget to bring an extra set of clothes if it's a multi-day event because it's possible that you'll get dirty or sweaty.
3. Be prepared for any weather conditions!
Make sure that you pack a hat, sunscreen, raincoat and comfortable shoes for walking. In addition, don’t forget about your ID or passport if you are from out of town. Bring cash along with you in case there is an event where you need to buy something like food or drinks.
