Parade: Free; 8 p.m.
Fest: $5; noon
Watch out, Main Street. Here comes the Pride Parade Friday night — with a fleet of floats and a mass of marchers celebrating unity, diversity and acceptance for Louisville’s LGBTQ community. This year’s parade theme is “I Am One, We Are Many,” and the grand marshal is Chris Hartman, director of the Fairness Campaign, which is now in its 20th year. Saturday’s festival at the Belvedere features live music and performances from Dangerous Liaison, The Blue Umbrellas, Jenn Stout, Cazwell, Roxy Cottontail and many more. As always, the Pride Fest is open to all who are open-minded, and there’ll be food, beer, hot ladies and more. Come celebrate Louisville’s diversity — as a city, we were born this way. —Sara Havens
