Ranging from solemn to carnivalesque, pride events are typically held during LGBT Pride Month or some other period that commemorates a turning point in a country's LGBT history , for example Moscow Pride in May for the anniversary of Russia's decriminalization of homosexuality. Some pride events include LGBT pride parades and marches , rallies, commemorations, community days, dance parties, and festivals.
