By the City of West Hollywood:

West Hollywood, May 22 – June 30, 2014 One City One Pride LGBTQ Arts Festival (aka 40 Days of Pride through the Arts)

Each year, the City of West Hollywood celebrates Pride month through the artistic contributions of our community with the One City One Pride Arts Festival. This year, the One City One Pride Arts Festival will run from Harvey Milk Day (May 22) through the end of June.

2014’s festival theme: ‘I Do’

On June 26, 2013, the Supreme Court rendered decisions allowing for marriage equality in California and striking down the Defense of Marriage Act of 1996 as unconstitutional.

In celebration of the one year anniversary of this monumental day, and of the hundreds of same-sex marriages that were performed in the City of West Hollywood in the days following this historic decision, the theme for the 2014 West Hollywood LGBTQ Arts Festival is ‘I Do.’

‘I Do’ represents an affirmation, a promise, a commitment, and a celebration of love.

There’s two ways to navigate the festival events, by map or by calendar:

Just a small handful of highlights include:

  • May 31, 8:00 to 11:00 pm – ONE Night, a spectacular outdoor digital art event in WeHo Park featuring projections on an inflatable balloon and music & dance performances produced in collaboration with ONE National Gay and Lesbian Archives, EZTV and LA ACM-SIGGRAPH. Its too hard to describe just watch this video.

Of course the biggest event happening during Pride is the LA Pride Parade and Festival produced by our community partner Christopher Street West on June 7 and 8. (along with several free to the community events in the days just prior).
