Marchers at Honolulu Pride.

Thousands took to the streets of Waikiki for the latest edition of the Honolulu Pride.

It kicked off at 11am in Ala Moana in central Honolulu under a scorching sun. More than 30,000 were expected to show up and they definitely did, invading Kalakaua Avenue with rainbow flags and banners.

And then let’s set sail to see the dolphins

The parade then finished in Waikiki Shell in the afternoon.

After the parade, revelers went on to one of the many other events of this year’s festival. Particularly, the annual Pride cruise was among the most anticipated events. The lucky participants also had the chance to say aloha to the dolphins.

Moreover, the festival featured an entertaining line-up. The emcees were designer Andrew Christian, and West Hollywood model and bartender Cory Z. Gay Men’s Chorus of Honolulu, performer Sasha Colby, DJ TittaByte also performed.

The biggest Honolulu Pride so far

2018 marked the biggest Honolulu Pride yet, with floats and walking groups parading proudly in support of the LGBTI community. The organizers, in fact, were overwhelmed by this year’s turnout.

‘There were over 100 entrants this year,’ said Randall Jadulang, director of the Hawaii LGBT Legacy Foundation.

‘Last year we had about 80, so we’re growing,’ he also said.

While you might now crave a rainbow musubi – this year’s Pride symbol – take a look at some of the best pictures of the parade:
