Queer people in nations around the world face their own unique challenges, and cities aim to highlight them through their Pride celebrations throughout the year. Homosexuality is legal, but the country still bans same-sex marriage and adoption. Protections against discrimination are limited as well.
The ones that have already happened this year have been LIT, the ones still to come are getting bigger by the day, and all of them represent a master class in how Pride can bring out the best in a small town. Featuring drama, drag queens, and at least one Mike Pence impersonator, here are the places where LGBTQ organizers and allies have literally put themselves on the map for Pride Pence, who suggested the federal government fund conversion therapy. Fortunately, the Veep the parade deserved bought a plane ticket from New York the moment he learned it was happening. The turnout was past what the organizers had expected. He got a few double-takes, which does happen when you look like Mike Pence But Hot. In response to a request for comment from Thrillist, actual Vice President Mike Not-Hot-Pence stated the following through his press secretary:.
More than 2, revelers and activists attended a gay pride event Saturday in Columbus, Indiana, the hometown of Vice President Mike Pence. The event included a man dressed up as Pence, along with drag queens and activists dressed in shirts mocking the vice president. While ralliers would claim to be celebrating LGBT identity, it seems their event focused more on mocking the vice president.
Pride celebrations are held in cities all across the country. Most occur in June — the national Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Pride Month — but a few are held in the spring and fall, too. During the festivals, one of the major events is the annual march where the gay community and gay allies come to show their support. Find the city closest to you and raise your rainbow flag high.
