Want to know which cities have the best LGBT Pride festivals? Lonely Planet can tell you. It releases its free e-book "Guide to Pride: 20 Cities & Their Celebrations" on Tuesday (today).
June has traditionally been deemed LGBT Pride Month because it's the month in 1969 when gay community members pushed back against police outside the Stonewall Inn in New York City. The riots that ensued are viewed as the beginning of the movement for LGBT rights.
Lonely Planet's guide profiles "20 of the biggest, most welcoming and most jump-on-a-plane-worthy Pride events around the world." It includes Atlanta, New York City and San Francisco in the U.S. as well as Puerto Vallarta in Mexico and Vancouver in Canada.
Each entry lists Where to Sleep, Where to Eat, Drinking & Nightlife and a Don't Miss tip too. It also notes the history of each city's Pride celebrations, what time of year they happen, and the best places to stand to watch the parade.
The guide is available indefinitely starting Tuesday (today).
It's available for download on iTunes only.
