LA Pride logo New 2The 2016 LA PRIDE Festival and Parade is at the center of community and pop culture, bringing some of the hottest musical acts to West Hollywood to celebrate equality and the diversity of the LGBTQ community. The inclusive 3-day LA PRIDE Festival weekend is set to once again offer something for everyone from music to art, culture and signature events. Featuring three different music stages, the Delta Air Lines Main Stage, the Nissan Latin Music Stage powered by Club Papi and the Hip Hop Music Stage powered by B.A.S.H. LA PRIDE’s weekend of entertainment sets the stage to bring in one of the Festival’s most exciting lineups. This year’s festival features a collection of tailored programming from Dyke Marches to Vogue Balls, Youth Dances, Trans* Socials, immersive art exhibits and more.

Rory Moroney is at the center of a Long Beach police lewd-conduct sting that a judge found to be discriminatory. (Luis Sinco / Los Angeles Times)Sitting in cars along the edge of the park, four Long Beach police officers waited for the right time to pounce.

The innocuous signal that spurred them to action came when they saw a middle-aged man close his laptop and head toward a public restroom known in the area as a place where men have sex with each other. One of the undercover officers followed him inside.

Within moments, police were leading the man away in handcuffs. His crime: exposing himself to the officer.

LA Pride logo NewDear LGBTQ Family,

We heard you and we are sorry.

As an LGBTQ community based nonprofit organization, Christopher Street West has strived to create an annual Pride celebration that brings our entire community, friends and allies together in celebration of the unique diversity that makes each of us a valued member of society. As a mostly new governing board our goal was to create the best LA PRIDE experience to date. As we endeavored to create such an event we have made a few missteps along the way that have left valued members of our community feeling left out or under appreciated. This was never our intention. We’ve heard your concerns and objections and we sincerely apologize.
