EVENT SLUG • NEIGHBORHOOD

There are more Pride events in Pittsburgh than there are days in June, the month designated to recognize LGBTQ culture, contributions, and history. This year, the city kicks things off at the end of May with big musical acts at Pride on the Shore, multiple Pride parades, and other fun-filled happenings. From there, revelers will find everything from dance parties and drag shows to family-friendly neighborhood Pride events, and much more. See below for a large sampling of events to let your rainbow flag fly.
