Proud of our Pride
The annual Pride parade and festival is a sign of, pardon the pun, pride for any city looking to advertise how accepting and diverse they are, but let’s face it: All Prides are not created equal. Next Magazine set out to explore the LGBT communities around the globe and find which Prides are worth traveling halfway around the world for. Next Magazine chose seven Pride destinations and only one in the good ole U.S.A. made the list: St. Pete Pride. The magazine calls it “a vibrant festival featuring art, music and performances of all kind.” They go on to say the highlights of St. Pete Pride include the “lively display that runs right through the heart of the gayborhood” that is Grand Central and gushes about the only parade on the list that starts at sunset. St. Pete Pride is forth on the list behind Tel Aviv, Israel;Sitges, Spain and Toronto, Canada.
