PRIDE 2008!

Hey hey! So I put out a bulletin yesterday asking people if they're going to L.A. Pride. I'm going, so I wanted to see if I'd be meeting anyone there. I got an overwhelming number of responses from people who wanted to go, but had no idea WHEN Pride is! So I figured the same problem might be happening all over the world, where you wanna hang out with your gay pals at a Pride event, but you don't know the details or what's happening closest to you. I grabbed this list from About.com. If you click on the city's name, it'll take you to that Pride's official website for even more detailed info.

I will definitely be L.A. Pride, might be at Long Beach, SO wanna go to London Pride (wish me luck) and will try to go other places if I can...I'll keep you posted. Have fun!

i know this isnt for 2008, as our Melbourne Pride has already been. Since we are on the other side of the world, it doesnt matter! The next one will be great too! Midsumma Festival, ending with Pride march and party, (and this is one festival thats going for a whole week), starts Saturday January 17th 2009 in Melbourne, Australia. You should totally come, cos it rocks!
