The Most Incredible Looks From Philly’s Pride Parade

Like a sea of rainbows, glitter, peace and love, the 2018 Philadelphia Pride Parade flooded the streets of Philadelphia on June 10th. Beginning in Philadelphia’s charming Gayborhood, the fiercest of the fierce congregated to kick off Pride Day in gorgeous fashions that VALLEY could not ignore.

Liberty and Justice For All

This Philadelphian showed her love for PrideDay and her country by channeling her inner Lady Liberty. Of course, this look is not complete without the iconic symbol of the LGBT+ community: that rainbow flag!

Love Capes

While some used the rainbow flag to accessorize, others made the distinct design the central focus of their look, even the more youthful faces. In the second photo is the Executive Director of LGBT Affairs of Philadelphia, Amber Hikes.

On her Twitter, Hikes shared a message for attendees and all those celebrating that read, “Love my community, love my city. Happy Pride from @PhillyLGBTgov!!”

Pride Does Not Discriminate

Love is for all genders, sexual orientations, races, ethnicities and ages! Philadelphia’s tiniest celebrators took to the streets in their own fashion, serving all kinds of looks. From intricate face-painted designs and DIY hat madness to a classic ensemble with a more subdued pop-of-color flower crown, these toddlers showed they could hang with the best fashionistas and oldest pros at this year’s parade. These small supermodels let Philly know that you don’t have to be big to make a big statement — and that coordinating outfits with your mom is totally awesome.

Last But Not Least

Though rainbows were a staple and are a continuous trend at pride parades all across the country, this individual decided to forgo the flag fashion. Seeming to be staring down the haters, the model of this photo is wearing their own sense of style that stood out among all of the extravagant colors and patterns. From a parade that helps celebrate the beauty of self-expression and identity, VALLEY could not leave this original outfit of its list.
