True Colors

The Phoenix Pride Festival is a blast, both for the LGBTQ community and its straight allies. Downtown Phoenix turns into a joyous display of rainbows and acceptance for one fun filled weekend -- but the fun doesn’t stop there. In addition to Pride, there's the Rainbows Festival, Arizona’s second largest LGBTQ event. Rainbows returns for the 11th year in a row, hot on the heels of National Coming Out Day (October 11). The two-day to-do features DJs, live music, burlesque, and oh-so-fabulous drag queens. The event boasts over 150 booths that are both educational and entertaining, so expect a free condom or two.

Have a kiki at the Rainbows Festival at Heritage Square Park, 115 North Sixth Street on Sunday, October 20, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. This free event is open to all ages. Call 602-277-7433 or visit for more info.

Sat., Oct. 19, 10 a.m.-6 p.m.; Sun., Oct. 20, 10 a.m.-6 p.m., 2013
