Gay Pride Calendar

Read more

Gay pride festivals and gay pride parades are a fantastic chance for the LGBTQ community to come together and celebrate pride and culture with the gay pride flag flying high. But gay pride events also offer an important chance for the LGBTQ community to demonstrate for rights such as same-sex marriage and equality, and pay tribute those who came before us and fought for our rights to celebrate LGBT pride - with pride.

Due to the Covid-19 global pandemic, gay pride 2020 was a little disappointing. Our beloved prides were either cancelled or shifted online, and many of us were forced to wave our rainbow flags within the confines of our four walls. Having more or less missed out on 2020 pride, we imagine you have many questions about gay pride 2021. When is pride day 2021? When is pride month 2021, or pride week 2021? Is there a world pride 2021? As per usual Gay Pride Month 2021 will take place in June, with Gay Pride Day transpiring on June 28, to commemorate the Stonewall Riots of 1969. At this stage, the Gay Pride Calendar 2021 is dependent on global trends and governmental restrictions with regards to Covid-19. So stay tuned to our Gay Pride Calendar for real time updates on pride dates 2021, which prides will be shifting online, and which prides will be canceled.  

At this stage, we're feeling positive about an active, lively Gay Pride 2021, and we're even more confident that you'll be able to experience a more welcoming world by booking your pride accommodation with misterb&b. So what are you waiting for to enjoy your pride day 2021? Get planning, get booking, then get your gay pride flags and whistles at the ready for your dream gay pride parade! New York, Los Angeles, London, Palm Springs, Rio de Janeiro, Berlin, Sydney, Paris, Taiwan... Which gay pride will we be hopefully seeing you at this year? Check our pride month calendar 2021 for May and June events, or make plans for later prides in Fort Lauderdale, Benidorm or Cape Town. With our dedicated Gay Pride 2021 Calendar, you can get all the necessary details on prides across the globe, including pride dates, pride locations, and pride parade 2021 routes. 

 

Gay Pride Calendar 2021: see you in Europe

Will it be World Pride 2021 in Copenhagen? Or Maybe Madrid Pride 2021, which is scheduled to be be yet again one of the biggest gay and lesbian events in Europe if all goes to plan? Or how about venturing to Tel Aviv for a warm pride on the beach? Israel has been making significant progress in terms of vaccinating its population in an efficient manner, so maybe an experience at Tel Aviv Pride 2021 will feel like normal. Or maybe you have plans to experience your pride on a canal during Amsterdam Pride 2021. 

Hopefully we will see you at plenty of these excellent LGBTQ events. After all, we've done the hard work for you and given you all the essential details for gay pride 2021. All you need to do is the packing. So check our 2021 gay pride calendar below. We tried to list the main gay pride events 2021 in North America, Europe, Asia, Africa and Latin America. You will find all the different pride parade dates and routes for cities across the globe, the dates of the festivals, and the lists of events when available. Plan your gay calendar now, find your ideal gay pride dates for the year, and experience your pride day 2021!

Update: How Covid-19 impacted the LGBTQ community in 2020

The global coronavirus pandemic brought with it the cancellation of some of our most-loved LGBTQ events including the majority of gay pride events across the planet. Covid-19 has shaken the world, and caused more than 500 prides across the globe to be canceled in 2020. Some events were postponed, others moved online. For 2021, we are staying positive, but we will update our Gay Pride Calendar page regularly to ensure accurate information is shared. For more details, please check individual events below and stay proud.
