Trans Pride events in the US you should know about

With increasing anti-trans bigotry and violence across the globe, it’s important now, more than ever, to spread awareness and celebrate the beauty of being transgender.

As a result, we’ve pulled together a list of some of the largest Trans Pride marches. They’re big, bright events that light up the streets with blue, pink, and white. Get ready to join in and support local communities marching under the summer sun.

1 – San Francisco Trans March

Trans March 2021

It should be no surprise that good ol’ San Francisco is first on our list of Trans Pride Marches. This year, the March will be on Friday, June 24, 2022, and will include events before and after the March. San Francisco Trans March is one of the largest trans events in the world. It’s an open march that encourages anyone and everyone to show up and march along with the procession. People of all ages show up to the march, with activities like face painting available.

Speaking of all ages, there’s a youth/elder brunch that takes place before March. Titled the Felicia Flames Intergenerational Brunch, this event brings together trans elders and youth for a morning of mentorship and entertainment.

And for adults: There’s a 21+ after-party held at the bar El Rio that doubles as a fundraiser. Bustin Out: the Official Trans March After Party Benefit, the party supports initiatives for trans people who are or have been incarcerated.

Bigger than ever, SF Trans March also includes a Resources Fair, the Trans March Stage, and of course, the Official Trans March. This is the perfect opportunity to join in and help trans and gender non-conforming people realize a safe world full of love and equality.
