“YOUnify and Celebrate” is the tagline for this year’s Austin PRIDE day—an opportunity to support and connect the area’s lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer community.
Events include a parade and a festival that features what organizers call an unparalleled lineup of live music acts.
The Austin PRIDE celebration is in its 21st year. Austin PRIDE President Paul Huddleston says the festival keeps getting bigger and that they’ve sold tickets to people from 28 states and 8 countries.
“The festival is for everyone. We’ve got activities and attractions for kids all the way up to the adults," Huddleston says.
