The Gay Parade is a concept album by the band Of Montreal, their third full-length release. It has been called "indie pop's very own Sgt. Pepper" by Allmusic reviewer Jason Ankeny.

It is the first collaboration with frontman Kevin Barnes' brother David, who has since designed the artwork for every forthcoming of Montreal album. As the album cover depicts, The Gay Parade is a child-like exaltation of everyday life.
