LAVENDER MENACE

Friday, June 12, 5pm to midnight

This year, LA PRIDE brings back its free Friday night celebration ‘Lavender Menace’ which combines a community celebration of women with activism honoring Lesbians who have paved the way for today’s TLGB community and celebrating with the ones who will change tomorrow. Tamar Braxton will headline the Lavender Menace main stage.

Before the show kicks into full gear, LA PRIDE is proud to present the WeHo Dyke March in conjunction with the City Of West Hollywood and the Lesbian Visibility Committee, where attendees can honor, march and then celebrate the accomplishments of the Lesbian community. The annual Dyke March starts inside the Festival and moves its way into the streets of West Hollywood, down Santa Monica Blvd and then returns back to the Festival to celebrate.

EROTIC CITY UNDERGROUND

Saturday, June 13, 11am through Sunday, June 14 at midnight

Erotic City is the part of the festival that celebrates the dark, the passionate, the erotic, and the fun aspects of our LGBT life. This is where the folks who describe themselves as a little bit kinky come to hang out, and they welcome you to join them. Heard of puppy play but don’t know much about it? Now’s your chance to see what the fuss is all about. Have a favorite porn actor? Well they might just be playing strip-pong, signing autographs, or visiting with their fans.

Heard rumors about the kinds of kinky play that goes on in Erotic City? It’s all probably true and you’re welcome to come observe or maybe you’d like to try something new.

This year the intensity is turned up to high with “Erotic City Underground,” powered by THE FIGHT.

Erotic City Underground will be in the underground WeHo Library parking lot.


 

THE LOS ANGELES GAY PRIDE PARADE

Sunday, June 14 at 11am

Hundreds of thousands of LGBT people and their allies flood the streets of West Hollywood for the Los Angeles Gay Pride Parade, L.A. PRIDE’s centerpiece event. Featuring floats, music and a celebrity Grand Marshal, recognized for his or her contributions to LGBT rights and culture, the Los Angeles Gay Pride Parade is southern California’s largest LGBT event. The parade runs along Santa Monica Blvd. from Crescent Heights Blvd. to Robertson Blvd., and the bars and restaurants lining the streets join the party with all-day (and all-night) celebrations!

#SIZZLE ALCOHOL-FREE EVENT 

Saturday, June 13, 5pm through Sunday, June 14 at midnight

DJ Walter Delmar returns to the alcohol-free zone #SIZZLE—A Carnival of Attraction – at LA Pride this year. His music sets are a journey into old school hip hop, rap and dance tracks, mixed with the current music from those genres to create a non-stop dance party.

“I’m honored to be able to perform for a community event that is here to connect people,” Delmar tells THE FIGHT. “The attendees of these events are always open and full of amazing energy! I was astounded by the reception of the people who were there to dance and have a great time.”

Follow Delmar on Instagram, twitter and Facebook.

#SIZZLE takes place on Melrose, the corner of San Vicente.
