Pride never ends: 15 fabulous, travel-worthy Pride festivals still to come

Around the world, Pride celebrations are not uniformly scheduled in June, the anniversary of the Stonewall riots that set Pride in motion. Sometimes they take place earlier or later in the year to take advantage of cooler weather (thank you Las Vegas and Palm Springs!). Sometimes they are scheduled so people like you can take in more than one.

Whatever the case, they are a great reminder that Pride is 365 days a year.
