Awaiting Dates for 2021
Honolulu Gay Pride 2021
Hawaii’s largest city, Honolulu hosts the Honolulu Pride celebration each year, now being held in mid- to late October.
The event is always held the third Saturday of October and is the culmination of two weeks of events for Hawaii’s LGBTQ+ community and our allies.
With more than 20,000 parade viewers, 60 parade entrants, 115 moving units and 1,500 participants, the Honolulu Pride Parade gets bigger and more festive every year.
The event includes a parade that departs at 11 am from Magic Island (on the oceanfront, just south of Ala Moana Center, at the east end of the park), proceeds through the heart of Waikiki along Kalakaua Avenue, and ends near Kapiolani Park at the festival’s new home, Diamond Head Greens, adjacent to Kapiolani Park by the base of iconic Diamond Head – this celebration is held from 11 am until 8 pm.
Other events include a white party, a black party, pool parties and a festival day with More than 3,000 festival revelers at Diamond Head Greens.
Special projects include Rainbows Over Waikiki — 150 rainbow banners brightening the heart of Waikiki for two weeks leading up to the
Festival– and Youth Programs that support and empower Hawaii’s LGBTQ+ youth. It’s all about love and aloha.
The gay bars in Honolulu are conveniently centred in the Waikiki tourist district but to visit Honolulu’s only real gay dance club, Scarlet Honolulu you will need to head downtown!
By far the most popular gay beach in Hawaii, and one of the most scenic and well-known in the world, Queen’s Surf Beach is a relatively secluded stretch of sand in the heart of Waikiki, but along a section with no direct hotel frontage – this accounts for the fact there’s more privacy and fewer families here than to the north or south. The beach here draws a mostly gay-male crowd

This modern coastal 1-bedroom apartment features stunning oceanfront views. The Ilikai Marina condo offers a little more private and secluded experience, located just across the street from the hotel, restaurants and nightlife.
This is a great place to stay while in Waikiki offering the best view of ocean and Marina from both bed room and living room. Great location close to Ala Moana Park and the beach but not in the hectic center of Waikiki.
