thePride - Since 2014, the Long Beach Lesbian and Gay Pride Festival & Parade has seen a significant drop in revenue. It reached an all-time low during 2017’s event — records show that the festival saw a loss of $96,687 that year, as reported by the Long Beach Press Telegram.

The two-day event, aimed at embracing members of the LGBTQ+ community and upholding queer pride, features live music, community events as well as food and drinks for all attendees. However, ticket sales have steadily declined since 2014 while the cost of entertainment for the event, as well as festival amenities, have only increased.
