Philly Pride Weekend is still reverberating throughout the city. Sunday was a day of color clad pride, enthusiasm and glitter covered streets. Fran Dresher, a long time ally of the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender communities (LBGT), was just a single highlight of the annual festival.
PrideDay LGBT Parade and Festival is the largest celebration of LGBT pride in the region. Over the years attracting over 25,000 people each year. Yes, 2015 was no exception. Also, celebrated was the 50th anniversary of the 1965 Independence Hall gay rights protest/picketing.
The glitz and glamour of Philly’s Pride weekend stretched from club scene dance parties and outrageous block parties to the Out Fest on Main Stage at Penns Landing. As Franny Price, President of Philly Pride Presents, says “National Coming Out Day was a record breaking success and we are already planning the festivities of the 2016 celebration, because Pride never quits.”
