The season to show off your Pride is fast approaching. Before you know it, there will be folks talking about what they’ll be wearing to festivities. In the mean time, one of the biggest Pride Festivals in Southern California is preparing for theirs.  Long Beach Pride is known for its great weather and location to celebrate our queerness —  it’s spacious and offers diversity in stages. There are 5 stages for entertainment: Main, Fiesta Caliente (Latin), Urban Soul (Hip-Hop), Country and Dance (EDM, House).

The Entertainment Committee has been promoting a ‘CALL FOR ARTISTS’. In which, all entertainers whether LGBTQ identified or allies, such as Dancers, DJs, Singers, Musicians, Bands, Drag Performers, Comedians and Hosts are welcomed to submit.  The City of Long Beach is known to be close with its community and therefore the organization is inviting the local talent for the opportunity to showcase their gifts.

If you are interested in performing this year and showing your talents, please visit and submit.

Happy Pride and remember, always show off your colors!
