The City of West Hollywood presents their annual “One City One Pride” LGBTQ Arts Festival from May 22- June 30. For event information, please head to www.pride.weho.org/.
Plan to attend this year and strut your stuff with the LGBTQ+ community and allies from across the country and around the world.
REMINDER: No alcohol, backpacks or weapons allowed. Only clear plastic bags are permitted.
History lesson for you: The first revolutionary LA Pride kicked off in 1970 on the one-year anniversary of the Stonewall riots and quickly became integral for the West Coast gay liberation movement. Today, the LGBTQ+ community includes people of every race, religion, philosophical belief, immigration status, gender and sexual orientation. We’re proud to say LA Pride calls WeHo home since 1979.
