Christopher Street West L.A. Pride

Roughly 400,000 spectators and participants gathered in West Hollywood for this year’s Christopher Street West L.A. Pride celebration. The parade featured 130 entries that lined up on Santa Monica Boulevard from Crescent Heights Boulevard to Robertson Boulevard. Elaborate floats, marchers and convertible vehicles showcased politicians, retail stores, banks, bars, and
clubs from all over southern California, as well a long list of advocacy groups.
This year’s parade Grand Marshal was 21-year-old singer Demi Lovato, who
performed her latest single “Really Don’t Care” on float full of mannequins.
Footage from the pride parade will be used for the song’s music video.
