Every year, all over the world, communities host pride celebrations, festivals that provide visibility for and unity of the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender members of the community. These celebrations observe the rich diversity of the area and provide educational opportunities for straight allies. For the past few years, the Pride festival in Tallahassee, Florida has been growing. PRIDEFEST 2010 brought in thousands of guests from all over the states of Florida, Alabama, Georgia, and beyond.
Tallahassee PRIDEFEST has quickly become not only a celebration, but an annual cultural week of events that entertain, educate, and thrill all of those who attend!
Continuing a multi-year tradition, Tallahassee PRIDEFEST 2011 brings a host of opportunities to help you educate, liberate, and celebrate out and about in Tallahassee. From literary events to performances, art shows to alternative proms, opportunities to serve the community, and the premiere event, Pride in the Plaza, there is truly something for everyone.
