Las Vegas Pride Guide 2014
Las Vegas has grown to be a favorite of mine over the last couple of years since it offers so much and has become a top gay destination over the years. Its annual Pride is happening this week, and below see different events to choose from each day if you plan on being in Sin City this week or take a last minute getaway:
Gay Days Las Vegas (9/2-9/8) – The 3rd annual Gay Days expo to feature travel, entertainment and businesses at the Luxor hotel and events such as a welcome dinner at Buca di Pepo in the Excaliber and a kick off party at the Piranha Nightclub. A highlight of the event is four days of pool parties at the Luxor that ends with summer long Temptation Sundays party on 9/7.
Shedonism Vegas (9/3-9/8) – LGBT women get the spotlight with Shedonism through its several parties planned through the week and weekend. Many will be at its host, the RUMOR hotel, with a few of the evening parties at the Palms Resort.
Official Boy’s Party (9/4) – A no cover boys party at the popular Share Nightclub.
Las Vegas Pride Parade (9/5) – Different for the other Pride parades since it takes place at night. The 16th Annual Pride Night Party (above) will take place from 7 to 10 pm in downtown. There’s a pre-party from 5 to 8pm at MEET Las Vegas at the corner of 4th Street & Bridger Ave. which is noted as the best spot to view the parade afterwards. Official after party follows at Piranha or can keep it going at MEET.
Xposed LV (9/6) – The newest weekly pool party at the Tropicana beach club throws its last shindig for the season.
Las Vegas Pride Festival (9/6) – From noon to 10 pm, enjoy the festival day of performers (such as Drag Race’s Courtney Act) at the Clark County Amphitheater where there will also be more than 100 exhibitors on site plus a kids zone. Official after party at Share Nightclub.
