When it comes to top gay destinations in the USA, Key West is a front-runner. Renowned for its strong LGBTQ community and 'One Human Family' philosophy, it only makes sense that Key West Gay Pride is always a popular, lively event! While we could say that every day in Key West is a pride day, the annual pride festivities take things to a whole new level.
Key West Pride is a small but powerful event! Expect dance parties, drag shows, bike tours, water excursions, a street fair, pool parties and, of course, the main parade. The Miss Pride, Mr Pride and Ms Pride competitions are also a highlight! So why not make this year the year you join the locals and celebrate pride on this tropical island in Florida?
Bear in mind that this is the event program for 2019. Stay tuned for the 2020 program for Key West Pride, coming soon. The Street Fair runs from 10am until 7pm on June 8, along Duval Street, while the main Key West Gay Pride Parade takes place on the last Sunday, June 9, from 5pm. Following the Pride Parade, a beach party kicks off at 7pm, and runs into the evening with plenty of music and dancing. This is arguably the highlight of Key West Pride, so be sure to pace yourself throughout the day so you don't miss out on this!
As well as the Pride Parade, there will be a series of events and special parties taking place over the course of Key West Pride. This includes the Island House Pool Party and the Blu Q Catamaran Sunset Party. Along with this, most of the bars dotted along Duval Street will remain open, and will offer varied entertainment each night. So are you convinced to enjoy a tropical island in the sun with pride? We thought so!
