LA Blade - All events related to LA Pride are now postponed, it was reported by Christopher Street West President Estevan Jose Montemayor in a phone call to Los Angeles Blade. “We will be announcing a date in the near future for later this year.”

The City of West Hollywood had earlier issued a statement earlier in the day that suggested City Hall staff and leadership from Christopher Street West were evaluating the event. No details are available on negotiations that lead to postponement announcement, however.

WEHOville - With the 50th anniversary of LA Pride coming in June, West Hollywood’s City Council voted 4-1 on Monday night to spend $3 million on the event, some $1 million more than it spent on LA Pride in 2019.

With the city covering costs for security, traffic control, parking enforcement, and a massive mailing announcing road closures, the $3,012,576 is the largest amount the city has ever spent on LA Pride. In 2019, the city spent $2,088,442.

WEHOville - With LA Pride 2020 six months away, West Hollywood’s City Council unanimously approved expanding the venue’s “footprint” and corresponding road closures during its meeting Monday night. Those closures include a controversial plan to close Santa Monica Boulevard in the Boystown district starting on the Friday morning of Pride weekend.

the Pride - Formerly known as  the Long Beach Lesbian and Gay Pride, the new and improved Long Beach Pride – the organization in charge of producing the Pride Parade & Festival in Long Beach – is rolling out a new identity. Not only has its name been updated, but the 36-year-old 501(c)3 nonprofit revealed earlier this week its new logo, mission statement and website in preparation for a 2020 relaunch. 

“The start of a decade is the perfect time to reflect on Long Beach Pride’s strong history and our commitment to inform and inspire a new generation of active members. Our name now reflects our mission of encouraging even more inclusion and embracing the LGBTQ+ community as a whole, and its allies, through the simple yet universal message of having pride in ourselves and each other,”

WEHOville Christopher Street West, the West Hollywood nonprofit that produces the annual LA Pride Festival and Parade, today announced that it is bidding to host WorldPride in Los Angeles in 2025.

WorldPride was founded by the non-profit LGBTQ+ rights organization, InterPride, which meets annually in different cities around the world where its members select the host city for the next WorldPride event.
