June is Pride Month!By: Julissa Rodriguez
About Pride Month
June is recognized as Pride Month by the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) community worldwide. Events are held in June to commemorate the anniversary of the Stonewall Rebellion in New York City on June 28, 1969 which most historians consider to be the birth of the modern LGBT civil rights movement.
One City, One Pride Festival
The City of West Hollywood will once again celebrate LGBT arts and culture with its annual festival throughout June. There are both free and ticketed events featuring theatre, film, music, poetry, spoken word, visual art and more. Please see the calendar link here for program ticketing and reservation information. While there is no charge for free events, we recommend that you reserve a space (if so noted) since seating will be limited at most venues.
Please note that programs, dates and times are subject to change – and new events may be added – so check back for updates and additions to programming occurring throughout West Hollywood.
