Every June, the United States holds its annual Pride Month. This is a time of reflection, celebration, and awareness of the contributions that the LGBTQ+ community has made throughout history. Many companies have taken this time as an opportunity to show their support for the LGBTQ+ community, and the Walt Disney Company is no exception.
At both Walt Disney World Resort and Disneyland Resort, Pride activities will be happening all month long. In addition to all the decorations and merchandise, Disney also offers Pride events at the Parks.
This year, Disneyland Resort will be hosting Disneyland After Dark: Pride Nite. This brand-new event will take place on June 13 and June 15, 2023.
