Most Pride Festival organisers have something special in mind for the 2019 Pride celebrations. The reason for expanding the celebration is the 50 year anniversary of the Stonewall uprising and the beginning of a worldwide Pride movement. And that is an awesome reason to up the celebrations!

Why is the 2019 LGBT Pride so important?

Almost every LGBT Pride Parade organizer talks about it in some way or another. The Stonewall Riots of 1969.

This year, 50 years ago, the Stonewall uprising took place and it was the first day of a new era. Most city Pride Parades have activities or ceremonies in order to remember what happened generations before us and how they started clearing the way for future generations… us!

That’s why this is important.

What is the Stonewall Uprising?

The Stonewall Uprising consisted of a series of spontaneous acts of rebellion, some of which were quite violent.

The LGBT community in New York decided they had enough of repression and anti-gay attitude of the government. After the riots that happened in the early morning of a summer day in 1969, LGBT people started to become a cohesive community, which made them stronger.

Today, the Stonewall rebellion is seen as the most important moment of the history of LGBT liberation. These riots took place near the Stonewall Inn in Christopher Street, New York.

LGBT Pride Calendar

So these a re the LGBT Pride Events that already have their dates published. Sadly enough, we weren’t able to get the dates for all Pride Parade events just yet. But obviously, we will keep updating this awesome Pride Calendar for Europe 2019!

We already visited quite a few Pride Festivals in Europe, but can you ever get enough of these? We visited the Belgian Pride multiple times… And in 2017, Madrid Pride was also the host of the WorldPride, which was an absolute success. This year, New York hosts the WorldPride. But hey, you can still easily attend major Pride Festivals in Europe!

Do you have plans to attend any of these Pride Festivals in 2019? Or have you already been to an awesome LGBT Pride Parade in the past? Don’t hesitate to let us know how much you love to celebrate Pride!

This might be interesting too!

  1. So much fun to be had in one summer! If I was a full time traveler, I might have my summer plan now.

    1. Full-time travel is the way to go! Just kidding 🙂 We wish we could attend many more Pride events than we do, but once a year is a bare minimum! Which ones are you considering?

      1. What about Lisbon Pride on the 22nd of June and the LGBTIQ + March on the 29th of June? Why was thee no mention of any of those two events?

      2. It’s great that you mention them now! We have not added these Pride events in Portugal, because the event dates were not published when this article was published. Some LGBT pride marches don’t offer a clear website or they don’t show updated dates.
        I had a chat with someone at ILGA Portugal. They could not help me with the correct info either.
        We selected these Pride events based on their online presence and available information. So there is no further reason why these events may not have been mentioned.
