Disney has announced its first official LGBT pride event will take place in June of this year.

“Magical Pride” will include late-night access to the park, a dance party and a parade through the park at Disneyland Paris, CBS News reported Sunday.

“Dress like a dream, feel fabulous and experience Walt Disney Studios Park like never before – loud, proud and alive with all the colours of the rainbow,” the website reads.

Organizers are partnering with LGBT Instagram influencers and bloggers @the.west.wing and @daddyanddad, according to the Magical Pride Instagram page.

Disney parks have made moves to welcome the LGBT community in recent years, according to CBS News, including opening Cinderella’s Castle to same-sex weddings in 2007, and introducing rainbow Mickey Mouse ears in 2018.
