The Ultimate LGBTQ Guide To Las Vegas

While the rest of the country celebrates Pride Month in June, it’s simply too hot to even think about frolicking outside this time of year in Las Vegas. 

But even if our Las Vegas friends are keeping their rainbow gear tucked away a bit longer, we still wanted to do something to acknowledge this festive month. That’s why we’ve come up with this ultimate LGBTQ guide to Las Vegas. 

In honor of Pride Month, we’ve combed through our previous articles and selected the best LGBTQ events, bars, saunas, activities, and shows to share with you. We’ve also added some never-before-shared information so be sure to read all the way to the end. 

With that, Travel Gay Vegas presents our ultimate LGBTQ guide to Las Vegas.

In addition to Pride, other events in Las Vegas draw huge LGBTQ crowds.

October’s Pride is naturally the biggest LGBTQ event of the year. But there are plenty of other events worth checking out throughout the year. Read on to see what they are.


While the rest of the country is donning rainbow duds and marching in parades, Las Vegas gays are relaxing by the pool and seeking refuge from the summer heat. But come October, Sin City explodes into a full-on Pride party. We’re talking glitter, rainbows, skimpy outfits, and queens—the whole shebang. 

The celebration starts with the annual PRIDE Night Parade, followed by the PRIDE Festival the next day. The parade is open to all, but is more geared to adults, whereas the festival is a family-friendly event. 

In addition to the official Pride events, there are plenty of LGBTQ parties around town, including poolside mixers and nighttime bashes.
