The Future of Pride

(p.209) Conclusion
Pride Parades

Katherine McFarland Bruce

NYU Press

The author concludes this book by looking to the future of Pride. Over forty years since the first Pride events, the Pride phenomenon continues to grow. Every year established parades grow larger and new parades are founded. At the same time LGBT people find greater cultural acceptance as the stigmatization of homosexuality and gender transgression lessens. As their object of protest dissipates, will Pride parades go the way of St. Patrick's Day events–benign celebrations of caricatured identity–or will they continue to push boundaries? By looking to what Pride parades tell us about collective protest for cultural change, this conclusion answers this question.
