Besties, Pride Month is upon us, and that means Pride festivals, parades, and parties are about to be popping off. I went to my first Pride festival last year, and I had an absolute blast. It was such a cool experience that made me feel extremely proud of who I was. To be honest, it just felt like one big party most of the time! The energy at these events is so welcoming and fun, and I definitely recommend everyone try to attend at least one this year, if you’re able to.

One of the reasons these events are so fun is because many attendees go all-out with their outfits, floats, and beauty looks, which is always awesome to watch. It allows the attendees to fully express themselves. One of my favorite forms of self-expression to witness is via Pride signs and posters, which are often super funny or super heartfelt — and they always cause me to marvel at how creative the people in the LGBTQ+ community can be.

If you want to join the fun of making your own Pride sign, here are some of the most clever Pride parade sign ideas on the internet to inspire your own poster-making journey.
