Gay Pride events are typically held in June to commemorate the Stonewall Inn riots which occurred in June, 1969, and which marked the beginning of the gay (LGBT) rights movement.

There are currently over 350 worldwide gay pride events, each unique to its location, and this is quintessential Philadelphian in flavor.

This is the single largest networking event
for the LGBT community of Greater Philadelphia.

The $15 cover charge helps to fund the event, pay entertainers, cover site rental, and is seed money for our "Outfest" event in October.
