The best of LA Pride in West Hollywood 2019. It was finally time for our first Gay Pride Festival in summer 2019. After our winter premiere in January at Whistler Pride in Canada, we’ve successfully attended Los Angeles Pride and its colorful queer parade through West Hollywood along Santa Monica Boulevard. And we have to admit, LA Pride in the South Western part of the USA was one of our best gay pride festivals ever! After attending Harvey Milk’s Castro Street Fair in San Francisco, we were overwhelmed by so much diversity, the amazing summer weather with blue sky and temperatures around 30 degrees Celsius as well as uncountable happy faces of the LGBTQ+ community and its allies marching peacefully side by side.

In addition to the men and women options, there are said to be two other categories. The action was confirmed by the trade association Airlines For America and is scheduled to be a requirement from Juni 1st 2019 on. More about the great news here on Couple of Men.
On February 2nd, 2019 over 15.000 people joined the Mumbai Gay Pride to celebrate the freedom of homosexuality. It was the first time after India’s Supreme Court decriminalized Section 377 in September 2018, a colonial law that declared gay sex to be illegal. The parade that started from Mumbai’s August Kranti Maidan – where Mahatma Gandhi began the Quit India Movement against the British occupation in 1942 – included 27 events to raise awareness for the LGBTQ+ community and educate people about it. We selected some of the most colorful and powerful pics of the gay pride event in India sharing the love and success of the openly queer event Mumbai Pride 2019 on Couple of Men.
