Happy Pride week everybody! The world may be losing it’s mind, but at least we can take comfort in the fact that one city knows how to celebrate the differences that make us special. It’s a time to become active in the fight for civil rights and show your support as an ally to the nation’s ever growing LGBTQ+ community. There’s another thing that Pride is notoriously famous for, and that’s killer parties. So don your rainbows, do a dance and show a little love, because we are getting down this weekend.
