Pride Las Vegas

Published Date Author: , September 13th, 2014

Pride Las VegasAs most of the rest of the country’s Pride festivals faded into summer memories, Las Vegas Pride 2014 roared to life like an MGM lion last weekend. MGM Resorts International–a major sponsor of the city’s annual festivites, represented by an enormous float and hundreds of employees marching Friday night’s parade–invited PASSPORT to check out the celebration.

Here’s the skinny: Where many big cities’ pride parades have become heartfelt but snooze-inducing hours-long affairs, Las Vegas’ is tighter, brighter, and far more eccentrically entertaining–a nighttime blast of day-glo color under streetlights and spotlights in old downtown.

The off-Strip location allows the participants to be the stars, and gives the whole affair a tight-knit community feeling, rather than a sense of being yet another glitzy tourist attraction. There’s a genuine enthusiasm among the participants, onlookers, and grandstand commentators.
