The DTLA Proud Festival takes place this month on August 7 at Pershing Square Park in downtown Los Angeles.

According to the event organizers the festival “will showcase the best that downtown has to offer through 40 community booths (10 local restaurants, 15 local retail shops and 15 LGBT community groups), a main stage programmed by the burgeoning and established LGBT nightlife, and grounded by a pop-up water park for all to enjoy.”

“Our goal is to create a festival that represents the diverse LGBTQ population that lives, works and plays downtown.”
