This year marks the 50th anniversary of Philly’s first Pride march, and with cancellations of past parades and events due to COVID-19, the LGBTQ community is ready to make this year one for the record books. There’s no denying that Philly has one of the country’s most vibrant and active queer communities, and after the pandemic forced closures of some of Philly’s most treasured queer destinations, it’s more important than ever to support the city’s queer-owned businesses during Pride Month. Thankfully, the march route is lined with queer-owned businesses, with many residing in the Gayborhood, where the route concludes and the festival begins.
After a series of speeches at 10:30 a.m., the march starts at Arch and 5th Streets at 11 a.m. on June 5, 2022, and ends at noon with the Philadelphia Pride Festival. For more info, visit the Philadelphia Pride Collective’s website.Read More
