The LA Pride Parade will take place in Hollywood, returning to the area where it began more than 50 years ago. The LA Pride Parade originally was a protest march demanding gay rights.

It took place June 28, 1970, to commemorate the Stonewall Rebellion on Christopher Street in New York City in 1969. Due to the onset of COVID-19 in 2020, LA Pride did not celebrate the parade’s 50th anniversary.

This year, it will, said officials with Christopher Street West, the nonprofit that produces LA Pride. The parade will take place June 12, but the route and other details have not yet been released. “LA Pride is thrilled to come together this year to commemorate the historic anniversary at the parade’s first and original location,” Gerald Garth, Christopher Street West’s vice president of programs and initiatives, said in a statement. “Considering feedback gathered since the pandemic began, we are committed to creating experiences and access to our entire community, including many of those who have been most underserved and underrepresented.” Not in WeHo anymore This will mark the first LA Pride Parade since Christopher Street West dissolved its partnership in July 2020 with the City of West Hollywood, where it had produced the festival and parade since 1979.
