Shining light

Join the Los Angeles LGBT community’s colorful Queer people
as they use their voices to create change and celebrate the month of Pride.

During the month of Pride, the LGBTQ community is coming together to support our Black community and shine light on remarkable Queer people.

“On Feb. 1, 1967, Gay men and Lesbians gathered outside the Black Cat bar on Sunset Boulevard to peacefully protest a police raid that resulted in the arrests of the bar’s Gay and Lesbian customers,” says Henry E. Scott, Editor and Publisher of WEHOville.com. “In the 53 years since then, the LGBTQ communities in Los Angeles and nationwide have allied themselves with one another in a largely successful fight for equality. WEHOville is proud to ally itself with The Fight in the production of OurPride, a celebration of that fight and the incredibly diverse communities that have come together to remind us to be proud of who we are. “

Over the course of two days, the 12 hour event will feature discussions and live entertainment with activists, heads of nonprofit organizations, political leaders, artists, musicians, drag queens and comedians.

Confirmed guests for OUR PRIDE include Congresswoman Katie Porter, Iman, Shiela Kuehl (Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors), Congresswoman Linda Sanchez, Margaret Cho, David Hernandez (American Idol), Gina Yashere, Lorri L. Jean (CEO, LA LGBTA Center), West Hollywood Mayor Lindsey Horvath, LA CITY councilmember Mitch O’Farrell, Jai Rodriguez, Luckie Alexander, Erin Foley, Oneup Duo, Ian Harvie, Mumu, Sizzy Rocket, Marc Ransdell-Bellenger (Tom of Finland Foundation) and others.
