The Best Pride Month Events in Orlando 2023

Updated: Jun 5, 2023

June is Pride Month throughout the country, a time to celebrate the positive impact of the LGBTQ+ community while working toward a future where everyone can live their truth in an understanding world full of love, acceptance and unity.



During the first weekend in June, Orlando is home to some of the world’s best-known LGBTQ+ celebrations — and you can only experience them right here in Orlando.


Plus, Orlando has a thriving LGBTQ+ community with many owned and operated businesses worth supporting.


Consider patronizing these businesses during Pride Month and throughout the year.


Many bars and clubs in Orlando host LGBTQ+ events throughout the year, including drag shows, karaoke nights, and dance parties, and during Pride Month expect some awesome events taking place.


Also, you are encouraged to volunteer with LGBTQ+ organizations: If you're looking to get involved in Pride Month, consider volunteering with local organizations.


This is a great way to give back to the community while meeting new people and having fun.

Red Shirt Pride Day 2023 Magic Kingdom Orlando

Red Shirt Pride Day 2023
Saturday, June 3, 2023

The KindRED Pride Foundation was inspired by the desire to expand the magic created by the 30-year tradition of the Gay Pilgrimage – a HOMECOMING – to Magic Kingdom in Orlando.


The event started with just a handful of people who decided they would meet socially on the first Saturday in June in front of the castle. They would all wear RED t-shirts to identify “kindred spirits” since they had only met on a bulletin board and never in person.


The event quickly grew to one of the largest LGBT+ annual gatherings in the world. and this year the goal is for thousands and thousands of previous guests and thousands and thousands of people who have never experienced the “MAGIC” of this iconic event to come to Magic Kingdom on the first Saturday of each June.
