Of course you’ll want to show your pride in rainbow-emblazed clothing and accessories, but you’ll also need some practical gear to be comfortable for hours on your feet out in the sun so you can focus on the festivities.
Pride parades generally happen in June (USA) and July-September (Europe). All of that usually means summer heat. Dressing for the weather is of utmost importance if you want to enjoy the festivities for hours.
Put on a layer of sunscreen before you leave and bring a bottle so you can reapply throughout the day. For extra protection you can bring along a hat and sunglasses. This is especially important if you’re wearing an outfit or costume that shows more skin than usual.
Take care of your face
We are sure you’ll meet a lot of your friends, and of course you want to look fresh and fabulous, use a great face cream. For example like this face cream from UN_DID.
You might get it in our PRIDE SURVIVAL KIT.
Also don’t forget to take extra care for your lips and use a lip balm to make your lips look nice and hydrated.
Accent your outfit with bright accessories
Complete your look with sunglasses, jewellery or brightly-coloured socks. You could even bring along a glittery bag or fanny pack to hold your gear in style. Here you can play with your outfit. You can make it crazy or relaxed as you want — it’s all about expressing yourself.
Head to other Pride events after the parade
While the parade is typically the main event of a city’s Pride celebrations, the festivities don’t end there. If you’re looking to celebrate before and after the parade, you can check out bars and nightclubs having Pride parties.
We have great news for you! This month we’ll add a special VIP card (value of $100) to your Gay Pack that makes you a super VIP at hundreds of clubs and events around the world! Here you can see more information about this VIP card.
Stay safe and respectful
Ignore protestors, or keep conversations short and polite. LGBT Pride events can attract protestors who don’t approve of the community or think that being LGBT is wrong. Don’t let protestors or anyone else —bother you or ruin your day.
But that’s not all like we mention before we have a surprise kit for you!
This Pride month you can be 100% ready with our Pride Survival Kit that includes 2x Addicted harnesses, 1x Pride swimwear by Addicted and a 4x grooming products to make sure you’ll look your best: protect yourself from a tan, get one or real-life Photoshop your face instead & protect your lips + we’ll add 3x Pride-style pairs of socks as well! Plus we have a discount of -50%!
