Out and Proud: The Best Pride Events in 2024

As 2024 marks the 25th anniversary of Pride, we've picked the best events to celebrate in style.

By Ellys Woodhouse

As the calendar turns to June, a month that signifies not only the halfway point of the year and the beginning of summer, for the LGBTQ+ community, it also marks the start of Pride Month. Cities around the world will celebrate with parades, parties and protests to mark the anniversary of the 1969 Stonewall riots. 

And there’s all the more reason to celebrate this year, as 2024 marks the 25th anniversary since President Bill Clinton first declared that every June in America would be recognized as Pride Month back in 1999. Since then, not only has the holiday come to expand other queer identities, but it has evolved into an international celebration and recognition of LGBTQ+ rights. Major cities worldwide, including London, Paris, Sydney and Berlin, now host annual Pride events throughout the year. 

To make the most of the month-long celebrations, Elite Traveler has selected some of the best Pride events and offers in 2024 from our favorite luxury hotels, bars and clubs

Included in the deal is not only two nights of luxurious accommodation at Equinox Hotel, but two limit-edition Equinox Hotels Pride t-shirts and a personalized welcome amenity.

More events and celebrations are also taking place in many Equinox club locations across New York, which hotel guests also get access to. This includes themed exercise classes, and the Between You & Me art exhibition and auction, which showcases artwork by queer artists while contributing 100% of the proceeds going towards the Felix Organization, which hosts summer camps for LGBTQ+ children.

San Francisco has long been considered one of the most LGBTQ+-friendly cities in the world, with one of the first LGBTQ+ uprisings in the US, the Compton’s Cafeteria Riot which occurred three years before the Stonewall Riots in New York City, taking place in the Tenderloin district. This year, the two-day celebration of San Francisco Pride is being held across the weekend of June 29–June 30.
