    or ___(city)___ pride (e.g toronto pride)
    obv in celebration of the upcoming prides.
    but google knows all...

    on another , slightly related related question...ever wonder why all pride celebrations are all around the same week...imo they should space it out according to regions in North America throughout the summer. That way different cities with celebrations would not have to compete for tourists, and those with nothing to do can travel NA thru the summer, hopping from pride to pride. + more chances of media exposure, Seems like the superior option, economically ...thoughts?

    point one: The rainbow offends me.

    point two: not that I go to them, but pride events are sporadic in the UK.

    Point one - how can you be offended by a rainbow?

    point two - they are all around the same time because that is when the Stonewall riots were. They used to ALWAYS be the same weekend, it is a recent thing that cities/states have started moving them around for more tourist dollars. Not sure where I stand on the date.

    Point one: rainbow. ok, its a bit tired, but thats nice. they could make it prettier imho

    Point two: google "stonewall" for why they are all around the same time. then google "interpride" for info on how prides are coordinated, themes, etc. i used to serve on a pride committee, and the idea of staging them out (like circuit parties) is not new. believe it or not, its not entirely up to us. there are city administration, festival/liquor licences, and tourism boards which all come into consideration.

    If they were scattered throughout the summer, I think most people that attend pride, even those that are really into it, are still going to choose just one or two of them to attend.

    The first Pride was in 1970, in NYC, and it was on the one year anniversary of the Stonewall uprising.

    I'm a little stunned that you're not aware of the Stonewall riots. That's why theyre all around the same time. You should look a little further into the history of your culture.

    From an economic standpoint, lots of important dates could be staggered around the country - New Year's and the attending celebrations, Fourth of July, St. Patrick's Day, Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, etc.

    They don't because the date itself has some meaning.

    Atlanta uses the very large peidmont park for pride and because of weather issues about 5 years ago they started moving the date. It now rests in the early part of October which in the south is either hot or rainy and hot.
    I like the rainbow flag. I don't understand why some guys despise it so.

    It's not particularly "aesthetically interesting" or whatever it's called.

    Some of us remember the rainbows and unicorns crap from the 70s:
