LA Pride 2022 will be June 10-12, and is currently planned to include an in-person parade and a music event. After two years without an in-person festival or parade due to COVID-19, Christopher Street West Association (CSW), the organizers of LA Pride for over 50 years, hopes 2022 will be a welcome return to the traditional celebrations that LA’s LGBTQ+ community knows and loves. Additional LA Pride programming will be announced at later dates.
Greater Los Angeles wasn’t without programming in 2021, though. In lieu of the large in-person events, CSW hosted hybrid and smaller capacity events, including a livestreamed TikTok concert headlined by Charli XCX and hosted by Benito Skinner (aka Benny Drama) that was viewed by 770,000 people nationwide, and an hour-long television special on ABC7, Southern California’s most watched news station.
Mark your calendars for 2022 as in-person pride celebrations make their way back!
