SPAIN-GAY-PRIDE-PARADE

Pride Around the World

From Rome to Kiev to Guadalajara, celebrations of LGBTQ pride.

Every summer, the world gets a little more colorful — and, it's hoped, more tolerant, free, and loving — when LGBTQ communities and their allies take to the streets in a series of international Pride parades. Ahead of two of the most massive, set for this weekend (June 23-24) in San Francisco and New York City, here's a look at how other places this year let their rainbow flags fly.
