🌈 Welcome to Fabulous Pride Month in Las Vegas! 🎉
Every June we come together nationally and internationally to celebrate and honor LGBTQIA+ Pride Month. It's a time when individuals from all walks of life, including lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, intersex, asexual, and those with expansive gender and sexuality identities, gather to commemorate the progress we've made and set our sights on the exciting future that awaits our incredible community. Initially inspired by the 1969 Stonewall Uprising, PRIDE Month works to amplify equality, justice, and opportunity for the LGBTQ community and its allies.
Here in Las Vegas, there are many events, activities, and activations that we invite you to participate in.
🌟 We kick off the celebrations with the LGBTQ+ Youth Enchanted Forest Prom on Saturday, June 3rd, at the dazzling Kaos in The Palms Hotel & Casino. The evening is exclusively for our young LGBTQ+ crowd aged 13 to 18, so come dressed to impress and dance the night away!
