Over the weekend, people from all walks of life came together to celebrate the freedom to love and be loved at Denver’s 43rd annual PrideFest hosted by the GLBT Center of Colorado. A 5K race kicked off the festivities on Saturday morning for those overachievers who wanted to start the weekend off strong. Festival-goers then celebrated at Civic Center Park with dozens of local food and art vendors. On Sunday morning, the Coors Light PrideFest Parade was the main attraction with tens of thousands of attendees watching the march from Cheesman Park to the state Capitol. The weekend culminated with an after party at the popular Denver nightclub, Temple, for those not ready to leave the weekend behind. PrideFest brimmed with feelings of unbridled joy and acceptance and the outfits of the weekend reflect just that. Below are some of our favorite looks from the festival.
