As we near the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall riots, the figurative birth of the modern LGBTQ rights movement, a new report from Orbitz ranks pride celebrations in key queer-friendly destinations, based on recent travel searches, flight prices and hotel inventory during their pride season.
June is traditionally pride month, with many destinations targeting the last weekend of the month. But more and more cities are holding pride celebrations months earlier (or later) to avoid scorching heat—and competing with bigger cities.
The big winner in Orbitz’s report? Provincetown, Massachussetts—a popular gay getaways on the southernmost tip of Cape Cod for more than 60 years. In fact, P-Town’s queer bona fides are so ingrained, it only held its first Pride celebration last year.
