Summer is inching ever-so-nearer and that means Gay Pride Season is upon us. With all the straight-to-mobile news alerts and screaming cable news headlines, it’s easy to lose sight of the fact that humanity has been making big strides over the past years toward equality for same-sex couples.
Last year Germany, with little fuss, marched ahead with the rallying cry of Ehe Für Alle followed closely behind by Australia’s resounding 61 percent popular vote to legalize same-sex marriage. And who can forget where they were when the U.S. Supreme Court said “love is love” with the bang of a gavel just three years ago?
Sure, there’s plenty of work left to be done, but it’s just as important to take some time and celebrate what’s been accomplished. To celebrate this swing toward equality, we huddled together with LGBTQI writers and straight allies to bring you the best Gay Pride Parades where you can celebrate who you are openly, safely, and proudly.
