Welcome to the best pride parade in the US!
The LGBTQIA+ pride month is celebrated in June around the world. What makes San Diego unique is that the main events are going to happen in July (so you have some time to organize your trip).
In this article, you will find the best pride programs and events of 2022. Furthermore, you will also know the most famous LGBTQIA+ bars in San Diego. You can come with your friends, family, and dogs (yes, everybody is welcome)!
The first pride parade happened in 1970
The world started to celebrate pride month because of the necessity to protect the rights of the LGBTQ+ community through a happy and peaceful celebration. Unfortunately, the violence and the judgment about LGBTQ+ people are still a reality. In this way, participating and engaging in the activities is a kind of support – and with more support, more conscious people are about this social issue. Keep it in mind and come to enjoy it!
