A bid by Come Out With Pride to bring one of the largest pride events in the world, World Pride, was announced to be unsuccessful last week when it was announced that Amsterdam had landed the prize.

We first told you about the initiative to host the event HERE back in 2019, when it was expected to be able to bring roughly 1 million attendees if it succeeded. World Pride is hosted in a different international city roughly every two years and promotes “…visibility and awareness of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex, and queer (LGBTIQ+) issues.”

Amsterdam World Pride will run from July 25-August 8 and you can look at the current programming lineup HERE and read about their “Soft Drugs Policy” on marijuana and hash HERE.

The next World Pride is scheduled to take place in February/March 2023 in Sydney, Australia. Past WorldPride host cities have included London, Madrid, Rome, Tel Aviv, and Toronto, with New York City hosting this summer as part of the 50th Anniversary of 50th Anniversary.
