It’s not too late to make plans for Pride


Pride month celebrations are fast approaching, with the UK’s largest Pride event, Brighton Pride, taking place in August, and London Pride set for 1 July 2023. But if you’re across the pond for Pride, why not get in on the action with some celebrations in the USA? From New York to Texas, here are six places to join the rainbow revellers.

Where To Celebrate Pride In The USA

NYC Pride, New York

When? 25 June 2023

Head to the city that never sleeps where the annual Pride parade winds through the historic Greenwich Village, where the Stonewall Riots occurred in 1969, kick-starting the gay rights movement across the world. Many events across NYC don’t require tickets, so don your rainbow finest and let the wind carry you, or at least, the stream of revellers drifting in and out of iconic LGBTQ+ venues including Marie’s Crisis and drag clubs like The Monster and Pieces. nycpride.org

Twin Cities Pride, Minneapolis

When? 24–25 June 2023

If you want your Pride celebrations with a side-helping of countryside exploration, head to Minnesota, home to 10,000 lakes and a perfect spot for a family picnic at Como Park in St Paul. The picnic is followed by a parade (pictured, top) around Loring Park plus a series of events across the Twin Cities. Head to 19 Bar and see what has been bringing the local gay community back for more than 60 years. tcpride.org

Charleston Pride, South Carolina

When? 3 June 2023

If South Carolina is calling you, head to Charleston’s Folly Beach for surfing and sun, or hiking at Cape Romain National Wildlife Refuge. The Pride parade routes leads through the heart of the city, which is also the perfect spot for some Southern comfort food. charlestonpride.org

Denver PrideFest, Colorado

When? 24–25 June 2023

The largest Pride event in the Rocky Mountain Region, this two-day weekend festival starts with a 5K run. If your favourite festivals don’t tend to include running, head to Civic Centre Park, which features 250 exhibitors, 30 food vendors, and live performances all weekend. The parade starts at 9:30am with floats, marchers and music, where more than 100K are expected to attend. denverpride.org 

Seattle PrideFest, Washington

When? 24–25 June

Seattle Pride is one of the oldest of its kind in the country and has been brightening up the summer calendar in the city since 1974. The Capitol Hill neighbourhood is the city’s LGBTQ+ epicentre, and there are queer-owned establishments just about everywhere in town. Head to Seattle Eagle, a leather and kink-friendly bar known for its racy themed parties, while you’re in town. seattlepridefest.org 

Austin Pride, Texas

When? 7–13 August 2023

Planning on celebrating Pride a little later? Austin devotes an entire week to Pride in August with parades, festivals and concerts. Check out Oilcan Harry’s, Austin’s oldest LGBTQ+ bar, the Continental Club, Austin’s trademark live music hub, or The White Horse if you love to dance. Austin’s evening parade begins downtown at the State Capitol and heads from Congress Avenue to the Warehouse District. austinpride.org

How Does It Work?

August facilitates effortless holiday home ownership; with fractional ownership, multiple people can own and enjoy up to five residences across Europe.

Why It Makes Sense

Full Ownership

Not only will you get to holiday in these five gorgeous houses, but every family or individual has collective ownership. This is an equity purchase, with real ownership, transparency and control.

More For Your Money

With shares starting from €365,000, you can part-own over €7,500,000 of prime real estate for a fraction of the cost. Plus, with five destinations at your disposal, you’re not restricted to just one property to call your second home.

Hassle-Free

August takes all of the hassle out of holiday home ownership, managing the purchase, maintenance and management of every home, including everything from housekeeping to gardening, cleaning the pool filter to paying the bills. If you’ve been put off holiday home ownership due to language barriers, unfamiliar legal and administrative processes, a lack of market expertise or simply not being in the area for viewings, August is the perfect antidote, allowing you to simply show up after all the hard work has been done, lie back and enjoy your dream property.

Stylish

With a wealth of experienced interior designers underpinning the collection, your five properties are carefully renovated and designed to expertly blend home comforts with modern technology. Welcome home.
