One of the most popular gay and lesbian events on the globe is the Paris Gay Pride Parade and Festival, which is held each summer. Find out how to attend, book lodging and other basics for planning a trip during the event.
The 2007 event will be held on June 30.
It will start at 1:30 in Montparnasse, and end at Bastille Place. There are often several events, including flamboyant balls, in the week before the parade.
You can register online for the event at the LGBT Official Site, which currently has very little information on its English-language pages.
The event attracts about half a million people each year, as well as more than a hundred associations, trade unions, political parties, organizations for the defence of human rights and commercial establishments, according to LGTB.
The Paris Office of Tourism also recommends the following gay and lesbian-friendly accommodations. I would suggest booking well in advance.
