Los Angeles Pride: A Visual Tour

Being a polysemic word, Pride means something noticeably different between members of the LGBT community. Whether it is getting the masses to sign a human rights petition, dressing in drag as a cultural protest, being able to safely hold hands with a loved one in public, or donning a colorful ensemble, these acts represent Pride. L.A. Pride is a smorgasbord of all of the above times twenty.

The event was held on Sunday, June 9, 2013 and featured a magical parade with rainbow confetti, crowned princesses, and butch Prince Charmings. The festival, immediately following, catered to all of the subgenres within the community. A nice addition to Pride this year was Momentum, an large-scale light and interactive installation in collaboration with ONE National Gay and Lesbian Archives, Impact Stories, The Mazer Lesbian Archives, The Lavender Effect, and The Colors of Compassion. Momentum was curated by the queer art non-profit, INSTALL:WeHo.

The video below is a visual tour of L.A Pride.
