London (June 28th – 29th): People from all over Britain and the world will be descending on Old London Town this year for what promises to be the biggest LGBT blow-out in the capital’s history. Given the UK’s recent legalisation of gay marriage and civil partnerships, the theme is “Love and Marriage” and the spectacle promises to be astonishing.

Boston (June 6th – 15th): Always a top date on the queer calendar, Boston promises to be even bigger and better this year given that the celebrity marshal is no other than Star Trek: The Next Generation’s Denise Crosby.

Shanghai (June 13th – 22nd): Asia’s number one LGBT celebration doesn’t feature a parade but that is more than made up for by the enthusiasm of the crowd. Shanghai Pride has been going from strength to strength since 2009.

Berlin (June 14th – 22nd): Indisputably Europe’s leading Pride celebration, Berlin will be welcoming around half a million party animals in late June.

Los Angeles (June 6th – 8th): More flamboyance on the West Coast this year, except LA LGBTs are taking things a step further by inviting all attendees to wear colour-coded apparel. The overall effect? A giant rainbow. It’ll be one for the scrapbook, and make no mistake.

Toronto (June 29th): This beautiful and multicultural Canadian city gets even more beautiful and multicultural next month when it hosts the prestigious WorldPride event.

San Francisco (June 28th – 29th): No run-down of Pride gigs around the world could not possibly be complete without mentioning SFPride, now in its 44th year. Make sure you follow the parade all the way from Market Street to City Hall, where America’s first gay mayor and San Fran icon Harvey Milk addressed Pridesters three decades ago.
