Portland Pride

NEWNOWNEXT ― Sure, we all know about Pride in places like New York, London, Chicago, Sydney And L.A.. But what about those Pride Month celebrations that are a little off-the-beaten path?
We’ve rounded up 10 that might not be on your radar, but should be. Each offers something super-special—and super-gay!

1. Portland, Oregon


June 9 to 14, 2015

Pride Northwest, as one local told us, “is a little bit of everything”—including a nighttime Pride Glow Run, the Trans Rally, Dyke March and a Pride parade with Gov. Kate Brown as Grand Marshall.  Music acts include Martha Wash, Big Dipper and Doug Locke.

2. Shanghai, China

China’s longest-running gay event, ShanghaiPRIDE, opens with a 6km city run passing through Shanghai’s iconic sites. The weeklong celebration also includes bike rides, art exhibits, film screening, panels and a performance of the Vagina Monologues.

3. Riga, Latvia


June 15 to 21, 2015

Despite efforts by officials to ban it, Riga, the capital and largest city in Latvia, hosts EuroPride this year. Turpināt karalienes!(That’s “carry on queens” in Latvian)

4. Sitges, Spain

June 18 to 22, 2015

If Barcelona’s bang is too big for your buck, then hop on the train for a 40-minute ride to Sitges. Last year, 45,000 folks flocked to this quaint Mediterranean city for a beachfront Pride like no other. Highlights include an underwear party, a 5pm Pride parade, a masked ball and tribute acts honoring Beyonce, ABBA, Queen and the Spice Girls.

5. Minneapolis-St. Paul, MN
June 25 to 28, 2015

Lily Tomlin is back in headlines with the success of her new Netflix series, Gracie and Frankie. But she’s also headlining Twin Cities Pride, kicking off the four-day celebration. Also performing that weekend are Deborah Cox and Peaches. Need we say more?

6. St. Petersburg, Florida
St. Pete Pride
June 24 to 28, 2015

St. Petersburg Pride, Florida’s largest, is a vibrant festival featuring art, music and performances of all kind. Highlights include the Pride parade, a lively spectacle that runs right through the heart of the gayborhood, St. Petersburg’s Grand Central District.
And you don’t have to endure the harsh sun: The procession begins at sunset on Saturday, June 27.

7. Manila, Philippines


June 27, 2015

Metro Manila Pride, the first in Southeast Asia, is an annual community-driven celebration. Smaller in size, the event is headed up by Task Force Pride, a local group of passionate activists. This year’s parade theme is Fight For Love.

8. Amsterdam, HollandAmsterdam_PrideJuly 25 to August 2, 2015

The only pride parade where the floats actually float, this unique procession takes place on Amsterdam’s famous canals.

9. Austin, Texas


August 22 to 30, 2015

This year, Austin Pride celebrate its 25th anniversary. Details have yet to be announced, but last year’s theme was The Wizard of Oz. There’s no place like homo!

10. Savannah, Georgia

September 12, 2015
Just because summer’s over doesn’t mean Pride is: This Southern city celebrates the LGBT community in the fall at pristine Forsythe Park, with a family friendly festival featuring local entertainers, food, vendors, carnival games and more. All for just $5.
