Idaho's state capital and largest city is the city of Boise Gay Pridefest. The city's previous Pride organizers dissolved recently, but new organizers have taken over, and now Boise Pridefest is set for 2016 to take place on Saturday, June 18.

Boise Pridefest events included a rally at 11 in the morning, the Boise Gay Pride Parade at 11:30 am, a Pride Festival noon until 4 pm, and a Pride After Party at the always-festive Lucky Dog bar starting at 9 pm.

 Here's a full schedule of events during Boise Pride.

Boise Gay Resources

Although situated in a conservative state, Boise is actually pretty gay-friendly and is home to a sizable LGBT community. For information on the area's gay scene, check the local gay paper, Diversity Idaho News, for details. Also keep in mind that downtown Boise is home to a very hip, cool, and gay-friendly accommodation, the swanky Hotel 43, an excellent place to stay if you're planning a visit. Be sure to take a look at the travel site produced by the city's official tourism organization, the Boise Convention & Visitors Bureau.
