It's rainbows as far as the eye can see during St Pete Pride, the largest Pride celebration in Florida.

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 places 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 person 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 participating in one of these events as an official Visit St. Pete/Clearwater brand ambassador, we're happy to have you help out!
