Come Out With Pride, the annual celebration of Central Florida’s LGBTQ+ community, will take place this Saturday, October 9, at Lake Eola in downtown Orlando.
The festival, presented by The Glass Knife, will run from noon to 9:30pm, and is free to attend for all with love in their hearts.
The highlight of the day is the The Most Colorful Parade presented by Winn-Dixie™, which kicks off at 4pm at the corner of Orange Ave at Washington Street, and wraps around the south and east sides of Lake Eola.

Grand Marshalls of this year’s parade are: Blue Star, Brandon Wolf, Chelsea Wolfe, Felipe Sousa-Lazaballet, and Chef Trina Gregory-Propst (I love her Se7enbites restaurant!).
The National Trans Visibility March (NTVM), in its third year of advancing the rights of trans and non-binary individuals, marks the return to an on-the-ground March during the festival with a Rally at 1pm at the Unified By Pride stage, and the March at 2pm.
There will also be live entertainment on two stages – the Amphitheater stage and the Unified By Pride dance stage – all day, with both local and headliner talent. Kylie Sonique Love and Gottmik of RuPaul’s Drag Race will close out the night at the Amphitheater.
Bring the kids, as there’s a Kid’s Fringe area, sponsored by Macy’s, plus there will be a Pride Marketplace, and even Dry Dock Sober Area presented by Orlando Immunology Center™.
The festival will end with a free fireworks display over Lake Eola at 9:15pm.
