LA Pride has just ended here in Los Angeles but there are so many other Pride Parades happening all around the country. If you’re getting ready for a parade in your city and you’re looking for something to wear, check out some of our favorite ideas for Pride Week here.
The most obvious first choice is, of course, rainbow costumes. The rainbow has been a symbol for the LGBT community ever since artist Gilbert Baker designed the rainbow flag in the late 1970s. The colors of the rainbow represents the diversity in the LGBT community. So to show your love and support, dress up in all the colors of the rainbow.
Costumes That Feature Rainbow Colors
There are so many iconic and fierce pop stars out there. Some may be queer themselves or some are just really strong supporters of the LGBT community. Either way, if there’s a celebrity you particularly love, go all out and dress up in one of their iconic outfits. From Madonna to Katy Perry and Lady Gaga, there’s a slew of LGBT-friendly icons that you can dress up as.
Make a statement with a different costume altogether. You can dress up as Judy Garland’s Dorothy from The Wizard of Oz since she’s long been considered an important gay icon. A skeleton costume would also make the point that we are all the same on the inside. Or dress up as Cleopatra to show off the confident queen you are.
Our Gay Pride Costumes section is stocked with mostly rainbow costumes to keep things streamlined and focused but, as this post shows, there are so many different looks you could wear. The main thing is that you wear what makes you feel confident and strong. If you’re participating in the Pride Parade, let us know what you wore in the comment section below!
I'm a mother of two and constantly searching for ways to have adventures and create memories as a new family. I love all things Disney, I'm obsessed with family costumes, and I will find any excuse to celebrate.
