LA Pride Next Weekend in WeHo

By  | 

Kicking off LA Pride next Weekend is the Free Friday Night, featuring live music (see lineup HERE), the Annual Dyke Rally & March  with appearances by West Hollywood City Council and Jewel Thais-Williams, the 2016 Pride Parade Grand Marshal (starting on the Main Stage at 6 p.m.), and the Trans Social (6-10 p.m.), featuring a mix of live entertainment.

The drug-and-alcohol-free Youth Dance (6-8 p.m.) is a new addition this year, an event to give LGBTQ youth (under 24 years of age) a place to celebrate Pride. Also new this year is LA PRIDE’s first-ever Vogue Ball hosted by Reach LA. Beginning Friday at 8 p.m. inside the West Hollywood Park auditorium, the Vogue Ball will be the most legendary battle featuring the dance, modeling and fashion artistry of different Houses.

On Saturday, a Drag Revue will feature some of LA’s top Queens performing, and on Sunday, the Auditorium hosts the return of Country Western, an evening of country music and line dancing.
The art of the community will be celebrated with a collection of queer art installations integrated throughout the Festival grounds, showcasing prominent and emerging artists within the LGBTQ community.
Added to the programming for kids, and the adults who act like kids, LA PRIDE is bringing a new Youth Arcade presented by Toyota to this year’s Festival.
#SIZZLE! A Carnival of Attraction! includes a drug and alcohol free environment featuring games and special performances. Erotic City, a popular 18+ experience, will return to the Festival at the Plinth Garage with adult entertainment, exhibitions and adult-oriented goods and services.
The Pride Parade begins at 11 a.m. Sunday, admission is free.
This year’s nonprofit exhibitor engagement will feature over 40 nonprofit organizations within the Community Park. The VIP experience at the LA PRIDE Festival is also being revamped to include enhanced food and beverage options, a new VIP viewing deck with an exclusive view of the Delta Air Lines Main Stage, and separate entry area, which will significantly shorten wait times to enter the festival. LA PRIDE is giving away a VIP PRIDE Weekend Getaway. Visit the LA PRIDE Facebook Page for details.
Throughout the festival there will be featured activations that are meant to educate attendees on the issue HIV/AIDS within minorities communities. They will also teach the public about protection against and prevention of HIV/AIDS with the LGBTQ community.
