Ultimate Calendar of LGBTQ+ Pride & Awareness Days (2024)

A simple hand-drawn Pride month calendar

Every month at Good Good Good, we plan upcoming good news content for our Instagram, Goodnewsletter, Goodnewspaper, podcast, website, and more. Our work is always centered on hopeful stories about people making a difference in the world — and action steps on how each of us can join in with that good work.

With so many holidays, awareness days, pride weeks, and heritage months happening all year long, we’ve been slowly collecting all of these events in a private internal calendar for years.

We made our Monthly Cause Awareness Calendar publicly available earlier this year. We also published:

And now we’re publishing this calendar specifically related to the LGBTQ+ community. 

Contrary to popular belief, Pride days aren’t all packed together during Pride Month in June — they’re actually celebrated all throughout the year.

Our hope is this resource will help you or your organization bring attention to important issues and communities — not just during Pride Month, but all year long. 

Where applicable, we’ve included resources around highlighted holidays — usually in the form of good news around particular topics — or action steps on how to make a difference. We encourage you to share them if you find them helpful.

We’ve worked hard to make this the most comprehensive collection of LGBTQ+ days and months on the internet. Always double-check dates, as organizers may occasionally change dates.

Bookmark this page and revisit it as often as you need. We'll continue to update it over time.
