L.A. Pride!’s 2019 Parade Is Just As Fun As Ever
WEST HOLLYWOOD, CA– One of the highlights of L.A. Pride! is its annual parade. Organized by Christopher Street West, a 501(c)3 non-profit established in 1970, Los Angeles Pride stresses public awareness of gay people and their contributions to society and the parade debuted that same year and was the world’s first gay pride parade.
In recent years, pride parades throughout the country have been subject to a bit of scrutiny over the corporate sponsorship of some of the “floats” that parade through route, but at the end of the day, despite any rumblings, any dollar spent to advance equal rights is a dollar well spent. The key is to just make your cause the most inclusive and far-reaching than other groups who are feeding from the same coffer. Bold, bright colors, and undeniable fun never hurt as well.
