Article Share by I Love the Burg:

Florida’s largest LGBTQ+ Pride celebration is back, and the 2022 calendar of festivities is more packed than ever before. Kicking off this June (with events even beginning in May), this year’s St. Pete Pride is set to be the biggest in its history as the month-long festival celebrates its 20th anniversary.

Not only is the Pride Parade back for the first time since 2019, but this year’s festivities will also include a pride concert, LGBTQ+ celebrities, and a massive carnival that will shut down the streets in Grand Central. With the expanded calendar of events and the return of the parade, organizers say they expect this to be the most highly-attended St. Pete Pride in its 20-year history, launching it into the Top 10 of the country’s largest Pride celebrations.

Local organizations are also doing their part to welcome Pride’s full-scale return to the Burg. Metro Inclusive Health’s inclusivitea cafe is stocked up with unique Pride swag and gifts you won’t find anywhere else, and is hosting a series of month-long events including community yoga, youth socials, game nights, workshops, meetups and more. Check out their calendar for details.

As organizers expect well over 300,000 attendees over the course of the month, St. Pete Pride will continue its mission “to strengthen St. Petersburg’s legacy of inclusion and diversity, providing a safe space for education, self-exploration, and celebration of our LGBTQIA+ community and allies. By championing equity and representation, we aim to create an open and compassionate community where people are empowered to thrive. No matter who they are.”

As part of the record-setting June, St. Pete Pride is hosting activities for people of all ages, indoors and out, night and day.
