  1. I know Dublin Pride is the last week of June, with the parade on the 29th. I’m not a Dubliner though, just studying/interning abroad here this summer, so I’m a stranger to Dublin Pride ways. If anyone has more info, or info about AS Dublin meet-ups for pride, I’d love to know!

  2. You guys, I have landed myself in Boise, ID and it turns out that their pride is on Saturday! I don’t want to be the only person there . . . :/

    Because people only show up to pride if it’s advertised on Autostraddle, right?

  3. Does anyone know if there is a local AS group in Minneapolis? Or if there isn’t, anyone interested in forming one? Not sure if there are rules around that at all. I know some organizations are picky (for good reason) about putting their name on something if they don’t know all the happenings in the group. I’m just curious and wanting to meet some kick-ass straddlers. :)

  4. Sigh. We don’t have pride until September. Which I guess is good, without the college students in town it would probably end up just being in my rainbow tie and five people standing around bored and awkward. But I do get jealous of all the awesome stuff everyone else keeps posting pictures of all month.

  5. Hello, I am writing you to communicate the Pride that will be organized in Milan (Italy) this June. I also have an image but I don t know where to send it. Anyway these are the details:

  6. Pride in my hometown is this Friday and I can’t wait! Because it’s a small town we get a decently known pop singer and a few local DJs but the party starts in the afternoon and lasts for like, 6 hours. There are also silly games like throwing handbags or running in heels. It’s great fun, there’s lots of people, lgbt, straight, kids and grandmas, and everybody is in a great mood. It’s truly a celebration and I really enjoy it, it’s a positive day.

  7. The Santa Barbara Pacific Pride Festival is Saturday July 13 for all of you peeps near the Santa Barbara/Central CA coast area!

    Here’s a list of the upcoming events:

    Sunday June 16 – Sunday Pride Sessions Day Party at Tonic Nightclub

    Thursday July 11 – Girl Party at Wildcat Lounge
    (I’m helping plan this event and I will make sure all of you ladies have a great time! Come find me dancing onstage and behind the bar!)

    Friday July 12 – Comedy Show at El Paseo

    Saturday July 13 – Pacific Pride Festival at Leadbetter Beach
    (This year’s entertainment line up will feature headliners – 90’s R&B pop group EXPOSE and from Ru Paul’s drag race LATRICE ROYALE! Also, catch me onstage shakin’ my booty with a local drag queen!)

    Saturday July 13 – Pride After Party at Tonic Nightclub

    Sunday July 14 – Pride Closing Party at Wildcat Lounge

    We’re working hard to make this year’s Santa Barbara Pride one to remember so if any of y’all are around the area in July, feel free to shoot me a message for more info :) I also have a large living room for ultimate slumber parties! Oh, and a stripper pole too haha.

    Visit http://www.pacificpridefestival.org for more information about the festival

    Ciao!
