Christopher Street West’s PRIDE Days continues PRIDE 365 by making June PRIDE Month, allowing us all to celebrate more than just one weekend. CSW in collaboration with the City of West Hollywood, other partner organizations and many supporters and sponsors present a full calendar of events that highlight our past present and future, educate and entertain, throughout West Hollywood and Los Angeles.
June is recognized as Pride Month by the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) community worldwide. Events are held in June to commemorate the anniversary of the Stonewall Rebellion in New York City on June 28, 1969, which most historians consider to be the birth of the modern LGBT civil rights movement.
The City of West Hollywood will once again celebrate Pride and One City One Pride Logo Smallthe artistic contributions of the LGBT community with the One City One Pride LGBT arts festival. Held throughout late May and June, but centered on the dates of May 31-June 16, this festival comprises both free and ticketed events featuring theatre, film, music, spoken word, visual art, a parade, and much more!
For the first year, the festival has a theme in 'The Sacred and The Profane', which explores the dichotomies of the LGBT experience: how the community views itself in contrast to how it is seen from the outside, a blending of the spiritual and the carnal, of things holy and wicked, and of things granted and taken away. Also this year's festival is mainly concentrated over the course of two weeks, providing something to do almost every day during two weeks of Pride Month, which commemorates the anniversary of the birth of the modern LGBT rights movement.
Please note that programs, dates and times are subject to change – and new events may be added – so check back for updates and additions to programming occurring throughout West Hollywood and the West Hollywood adjacent area.
