This weekend, cities across North America will be showing off their Pride. Here’s what’s on tap…
Milwaukee will be reveling for three days beginning Friday, June 5. Folks with be partying like it’s… 1995 with special musical guests Ani DiFranco and En Vogue.
Detroit will also be getting into the spirit with a festival and parade, but it’s the MotorBall 2015 people are most looking forward to, an all-night dance party showcasing four different DJs and that lasts until 4AM.

Kansas City and Ashbury Park will also be hosting Pride celebrations, as will Honolulu, where organizers expect more than 10,000 people to turn out. (Not so bad for an island that’s less than 70-square-miles.)
Hopping over to Edmonton, the capital of Canada’s western Alberta province, the festivities will last for over a week, beginning June 4 and lasting through June 15, and will include several special events, clubs and circuit parties at some of the city’s most popular gay hot spots.

I might see the pride parade here in LA, but the pride festival is grossly overrated and overpriced. Same thing for Long Beach. I’m not paying the $20 or whatever it is to get in. At least the parade is free (asides from public transportation or parking).
except here in Raleigh/Durham. We wait till Sept cuz June is too hot!
My classmate’s half-sister makes $76 an hour on the laptop . She has been fired from work for nine months but last month her pay check was $15351 just working on the laptop for a few hours. look at more info…
I met Mr. Glücklich at Honey Soundsystem’s post-Pride party in San Francisco back in 2010. So glad I let myself get talked into going to that – not my usual type of event. Two more different people couldn’t have got together. Nobody was more surprised than I when we made it a year together, then two…When we got hitched last year, I was, like, “Did we really just do that?” No regrets!
20 dollars is not a lot of money to get in considering that your 20 dollars per person is helping events like this to continue. It also helps pay for the special guest and vendors. So I would gladly pay 20 dollars which by the way you got a entire year to save up a measly 20 dollars. It’s not like they are asking for 100 dollars a person.
@charmin88: Except you missed the point. The $20 is going to an event that is overly commericalized and just seen as a big money grabbing opportunity for big corporations (alcohol companies love gay pride festivals). Why should I pay for entrance when big businesses are already making big bucks?
And the LA Pride Festival is lame. The pride parade is a lot better and technically free (barring public transportation and/or gas… usually I just park my car at the subway when I go as parking is also expensive).
By the way, not just $20 in the end for the lame festival… you have to take into account the expensive/lack of parking, the gas, etc.
