Kentuckiana Pride Festival @ Belvedere

June 15-16

Parade: Free; 8 p.m. Friday
Fest: Friday: Free; 8:45 p.m. Saturday: $5; noon

Though society — and Kentucky in particular — has a long way to go when it comes to eradicating discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity, there remains much to celebrate in the LGBT community. And that’s where the Kentuckiana Pride Festival comes in, each year bringing together thousands of LGBT individuals and supporters to celebrate diversity and acceptance. Pride kicks off Friday night with a parade, which has a new route (due to construction) — it’ll travel down Market Street from Tryangle’s to Fourth Street, and then make its way to the party at the Belvedere. Saturday’s lineup of live music includes The Blue Umbrellas, The Ladybirds and Inaya Day, just to name a few. Though coolers are allowed, outside alcohol is not, so leave the rainbow flask at home. —Sarah Kelley
