Get ready to celebrate the rainbow! The 2019 Honolulu Pride Parade & Festival will take place on Saturday, October 19, in Waikiki. Honolulu Pride is Hawaii’s largest and most colorful festival for gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, queer and allied communities. It’s a celebration of diversity and inclusiveness, and everyone is welcome.

The 2019 Honolulu Pride Parade kicks off from Magic Island at 11 a.m. on Saturday, October 19, and will run through Waikiki. It will be followed by the annual Honolulu Pride Festival at the Waikiki Shell grounds at the base of Diamond Head. Gates open at 11:30 a.m. and the festival will continue until 6 p.m. There will even be a Pride After Party at Hula’s Bar & Lei Stand.

Hit songwriter and “outsider pop” artist Allie X will be one of the headliners at the 2019 Honolulu Pride Festival. Her social advocacy and collaborations with Sivan and drag superstar Violet Chachki have earned her a dedicated LGBTQ+ fan base and regular features in gay publications.

Other artists scheduled to perform throughout the day include: Tim Rose, IZIK, Brozlyn Lechelle and many more.

Hawaii LGBT Legacy Foundation and Honolulu Pride Events are committed to a legacy of hope, equality and unity. It aims to help the community live happy, healthy and productive lives as an integral part of the larger diverse community that is Hawaii.
