As per usual, I am highlighting my top show picks for this week, but this time around, I’m giving a shoutout for Pride. Yes, it’s that time of year folks. The Pride Parade is this weekend, meaning this week is going to be chock full of extra parties for the folks within the LGBT community and their allies (both in advocacy and the need to dance dance dance!)

Tonight
