Pride season is upon us! Now, more than ever, the LGBT community is taking to the streets to celebrate our diversity and send a message across the nation and around the world that love is love. We'll be tracking Pride events all summer long, but is especially excited about the Las Vegas PRIDE Festival October 20-22, 2017.

Located in Sunset Park, the two-day festival will feature two outdoor stages, grassy knolls to throw down a blanket and people watch, and plenty of unique entertainment. If you cant' wait that long, check out Pride-sponsored events all summer, including Fiery Fridays and Hanky Panky Underwear Night (the second Wednesday of every month) at Charlie's Las Vegas.

Of course, no Pride celebration is complete without the right outfit and accessories. We've scoured the best of Las Vegas's shopping scene for essential picks, so you'll look your best at Pride events all season long.
