Every summer LGBT pride and equality is celebrated around the world with parades, parties, themed club nights, and much more. From now through October, there’s something for everyone no matter how niche your interests, from Gay Days at Disneyland to Burning Man pride fetes.

This year the festivities are particularly symbolic given the milestone President Obama put into place this week. He officially declared June as Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Pride Month with the goal to “eliminate prejudice everywhere it exists, and to celebrate the great diversity of the American people.” That’s certainly a reason to fly our rainbow flag.

With such a colorful season ahead, we’ve highlighted the events we’re most looking forward to around the globe:
