    I’ve never been officially to a Pride Festival but I did get caught up in my hometown festival in Hull. It was pretty all embracing and gave massive awareness to issues and co-operation.

    1. Auston Matta says:

      Wow Ed, I never would have guessed Hull has it’s own pride. Would be a site to see ;-)

  6. I’ve only ever been to Vancouver Pride (I think 7 times now?), and I hear from people who have been to many that it’s one of the best. I can definitely say it gets better every year, and it is so much fun!

    This year I am excited to go to three different prides, all in the UK in London, Brighton, and Cardiff!

      Oh wow Claus – that’s a good number of prides to visit! Vancouver sounds nice…we really love that city

    1. Auston Matta says:

      Yes Heidi, of course a Rainbow Festival counts :-)

  8. Nate Tipton says:

    My favorite Pride Festival was Vancouver, BC!

    I have also been to DC Pride, Phoenix Pride, SF Pride, SD Pride, Flagstaff Pride in the Pines, Chicago Pride, and NY Pride!

    1. Auston Matta says:

      Oooh Nate – we want to do Vancouver Pride! Love the city but we were never there during the pride festival.

    I took part in TLV pride – it’s was FUNtastic:)
    All the city is covered with rainbow flags and so many (hot) tourists:)

    1. Auston Matta says:

      We’re heard great things about Tel Aviv Pride. Would love to go next year!

  10. I’ve been to Buffalo Pride and San Francisco Pride. San Francisco Pride is crazy. They close off all of the Castro, and people just party all night at the bars and in the street. Unfortunately gangs come in every year, and there is at least 1 shooting every Pride.

    Buffalo is super cool. People are chill and friendly and it’s a great way to make friends and feel a part of the gay community.

    1. Auston Matta says:

      Wow that is crazy about San Francisco! Suddenly Buffalo sounds nicer.

  11. Fadzari says:
