Every June, members of the LGBTQIA+ community celebrate Pride month with various events in honor of the Stonewall riots of 1969, which was a major catalyst of the gay liberation movement. Celebrations pop up all month long and can come in the form of small events, parties, and parades. We’ve gathered up plenty of events for Austin Pride 2022!
Note: Allies are welcome to many of these events — it’s nice to show support!
With over 400,000 attending in 2019, this year’s event happening after a gap of 2 years will be even BIGGER! You have come to expect amazing entertainment from Austin PRIDE and this year will be no exception!!
Join Austinites as they take to the streets to celebrate pride and equality. The annual parade and festival usually begins at the Texas State Capitol, runs down Congress Avenue and concludes in the Warehouse District. Austinites, students, local organizations, visitors, allies, live performers, celebrities, floats and more will create a spectacle unmatched by any other local event. This is the best way to conclude a week of celebrations so head downtown early to get a prime spot for viewing!
