L.A. Pride is expanding its footprint for a weekend of nonstop celebrations, and officials are warning residents to be prepared.
Thousands turned out for an opening-night ceremony Friday night at West Hollywood Park and a Dyke March at Sal Guarriello Veterans’ Memorial. The ceremony featured appearances by LGBT advocates and leaders, a vogue ball and drag show and performances by Todrick Hall and Paula Abdul.
On Saturday and Sunday, there will be two day-long festivals to choose from: the traditional Pride festival at West Hollywood Park and a “Pride on the Boulevard” festival with local artists, DJs, rides and attractions on Santa Monica Boulevard. Performers include Meghan Trainor, the group Years & Years, Greyson Chance, Ashanti and Christian Castro, among many others.
The hallmark L.A. Pride Parade will begin at 10:45 a.m. Sunday.
