When is gay pride in key west
Each June, the Florida Keys’ LGBT community celebrates the LGBTQ lifestyle with a five day parade, party, and film festival. This one-of-a-kind event is a testament to the island’s longstanding reputation as an LGBT friendly vacation destination. During Pride Week, local bars and restaurants offer specials, drag shows, tours, and more. This year, Key West will celebrate its 20th anniversary as the site of one of the nation’s biggest and best Pride celebrations.
The events are a mix of fun, charity, and celebration of diversity in the spirit of the island’s “One Human Family” philosophy. The schedule is packed with activities to enjoy from morning until night. Highlights include the Big Gay 5K, the Pride Drunken’ Drag Brunch, and the Pride Parade.
Pride is a time to be bold and show your true colors. During Key West Pride, the island is transformed into a bright and colorful island. During this time, the island welcomes visitors from around the world to come and enjoy the festivities.
During the Pride parade, you can expect to see a wide variety of floats and performers. You will also see local bars and restaurants offering specials, drag shows, and classic gay movies.
There are also a number of activities that take place before the parade, such as the Pride Kick-off Luncheon and the Pride Pre-Parade. There are also clothing-optional pool parties and the infamous La Te Da tea dance. These events are a great way to explore the island’s LGBT culture.
