After a couple of years in COVID hibernation, Pride is officially back in 2022 — bigger, better and louder than ever. To commemorate the anniversary of the watershed Stonewall Uprising, Pride parties, festivals and parades are kicking off all over the world for the entire summer (plus some). Don’t know where to start? Here’s a quick rundown of some of the major Pride events to celebrate Pride around the world.

It’s been a long couple of years for Pride. In April 2020, according to the European Pride Organisation, more than 280 Pride celebrations around the world had to be canceled due to COVID restrictions. A few cities went virtual in 2020 and 2021, but it wasn’t quite the same energy. 

For many lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, questioning, intersex and asexual communities, 2022 will mark the first time in years they’ve been able to celebrate Pride in person. It’s a big deal, and the calendar is officially stacked with global events. 

LGBT Pride Month marks the anniversary of the 1969 Stonewall Riots in New York City, a rebellion against anti-queer policing that kickstarted the modern Gay Rights movement. It’s held every year in June, with World Pride Day falling on June 28 (June is obviously a big month for Pride, but many celebrations occur throughout the year; check individual Pride websites for specific dates). 

Here are some great Pride events to celebrate at in 2022.
