And would you look at that, June is just around the corner, which means it’s almost time for the magical month we refer to, as Pride Month! This 30-day, worldwide, celebration is dedicated to supporting the rights of the LGBTQ community and what they have achieved over the years.

Those of you who are truly devoted to making the most of this special celebration may choose to take part in “Cape Town Pride”, a vibrant and inspiring event that takes place in Cape Town yearly, involving parades, competitions and art. If you’re wanting to do something more personal, why not throw a Pride-themed party?! Lucky for you, I’ve brained stormed some ideas to make your life a whole lot easier!

Firstly, let’s start with some Pride month food ideas. For those of you who are interested in cookbook recipes, you must get your hands on “Tasty Pride; 75 Recipes and Stories from the Queer food community”, by food writer Jesse Szewczyk. Not only are the recipes beautiful and meaningful, but also super delicious.

Secondly, why not get some Pride decorations, like rainbow balloons to make the party more festive? Not only do decorations really lift the space and make it festive, but the right ones are Insta bait! Karaoke and a banging playlist are also good ways to keep everyone involved for an event like Pride.

Another idea that excites partygoers is a theme. Get your friends to dress up in bright, rainbow colours and enjoy the love and positivity Pride month offers! Celebrating Pride month at work is also a marvellous excuse to socialize with your work buddies. Decorate your offices in colourful flags and banners and take a few hours off the day-to-day routine and have a bit of fun.

All-in-all, there are so many different and interesting ways to celebrate Pride month, how would you choose to do it?
