How To Have a Big Queer Summer 2024: LGBTQ+ Events To Add To Your Calendar

As much as we all might want to visit our parent’s holiday home in rural Italy for a few months while they’ve invited a graduate student over to live with the family, a big gay summer might look a little different for your average Joe. However, there are still plenty of ways to live your best queer life from now until the leaves start to fall.

We’ve collated a list of some of the best LGBTQ+ things happening this summer, so you no longer have to spend hours on Google searching for queer events near me to add to your calendar - summer is officially here, and we’re on hand to make it queer!
