Each summer, St. Louis plays host to an absolutely massive PrideFest parade and celebratory weekend. We are known as one of the best places to promote LGBT rights and one of the best places to party. PrideFest organizers step it up every year with quality entertainment that is as diverse and talented as the community it represents. Musical headliners for the 2012 festival include Shelby Lynne and Deborah Cox, with support from tons of locals including Middle Class Fashion, Treehouse, Peach, Ellen the Felon and the Jump Starts. Also Scheduled: Burlesque shows, drag performances, comedy from Margaret Cho and appearances by the hardest-working lady in the business, Dieta Pepsi.
