2008 Los Angeles Gay Pride Parade

Two of California's top Prides burst onto the calendar in June: Los Angeles Pride 2008 (June 6-8; www.lapride.org) and San Francisco's 38th Annual Pride celebration (June 28-29; www.sfpride.org).

Out and proud and on the streets of West Hollywood since 1970, L.A. Pride sees hundreds of thousands of people descend on WeHo Park. San Francisco's rainbow-hued shenanigans, California's largest outdoor event, draw over a million attendees. This year's theme is "United by Pride, Bound for Equality."
