Rachel Covello, of OutCoast.com, is an LGBTQ+ advocate, travel blogger and writer. She's happy to call St. Pete, Florida, home. Not just because it's close to America’s most stunning turquoise water and white-sand beaches – but because it's also one of the most gay-friendly cities in the nation. Each year, thousands of visitors to the “Burg” celebrate all orientations and identities at a slew of Pride-focused events.
Whether you’re a single gay looking to mingle, in a committed LGBTQ+ relationship, or simply want to gather with St. Pete’s thriving rainbow community, you have to include these events recommended by Rachel in your itinerary. If you're interested in attending one of these events as an official Visit St. Pete/Clearwater brand ambassador, sign up here!
