E komo mai! The Hawaiʻi LGBT Legacy Foundation invites everyone to join us for Honolulu Pride Month throughout October 2023, and especially Honolulu Pride Weekend October 20-22. The Parade & Festival will take place on Saturday, October 21, and Hawaiʻi’s own Sasha Colby, winner of 2023 RuPaul’s Drag Race, will be this year’s Parade Grand Marshal and Festival Headliner.
Opening Honolulu Pride Month on October 1 is the 3rd Annual Kapaemahu Ceremony, honoring our cultures and ancestors, held at the Nā Pōhaku Ola, commonly referred to as “the healer stones”, in Waikīkī. Other highlights of the month include the National Coming Out Day celebration at UN Mānoa on October 11, and Rainbow Town Halls and Mālāma ʻAina gatherings.
Along with our sponsors, community partners, non-profits and businesses, there will be more than 40 social, educational and cultural events during Honolulu Pride Month. There’s something for everyone, so come out and celebrate with Hawai’i’s MVPFAFF/LGBTQIA+ community. Stay tuned for more details coming soon.
