Greater Los Angeles Pride Activities

Pride at the Getty: Queering the Lens An Evening of Conversation and Celebration

“Getty and LA Pride Salon Series Present: Queering the Lens
An evening of conversation and celebration
Join us at the Getty Center for a kick-off celebration for LA Pride weekend.

Starting at 6:00 pm, a one-hour conversation with three Los Angeles-based photographers—Rick Castro, Amina Cruz, and Texas Isaiah—creating powerful artwork that spotlights and celebrates under-represented LGBTQ+ communities.

They’ll discuss the varied subcultures and personal relationships explored in their work and reflect on how these subjects have forged their art practice.

This panel discussion has been organized by Rubén Esparza of Rubén Esparza Projects.

Following the talk, join a celebration to kick off LA Pride weekend in the courtyard of the beautiful Getty Museum, view the exhibition Tim Walker: Wonderful Things, enjoy complimentary bites, a hosted bar, and music by DJ Daisy O’Dell.”

Love is Universal

“Our after-hours theme park experience is open to guests of all ages and includes park entry as early as 4 pm, then exclusive extended park hours from 9 pm to 1 am!

As always, Pride is Universal will feature live DJs, Universal character meet-and-greets, photo ops, and more musical guests, drag performers and surprises to be announced.

Back by popular demand: the VIP – Universal Express ticket option that includes earlier access to the park at 2:00 pm, Universal Express access to the park’s attractions, premium viewing areas at the main stage, and exclusive access to the LA Pride VIP Lounge.

See you there!”


“Rock out with your flock out for a special LA Pride screening of our favorite obsession: mind-flip, time-slip drag-num opus The Rocky Horror Picture Show at LA State Historic Park! (Tell us about it, Janet.)

Shiver with anticipation for the sweet transvestite who sizzles and struts with anarchic glee. Wave your freak flag high and give yourself over to absolute pleasure with Tim Curry’s deliciously devious role in a celebratory kaleidoscope of B-movie reverence, oddball glitz, and gonzo garishness.”


“The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence to receive the much-deserved Community Hero Award.

LA Pride will participate in the 10th Annual LGBTQ Night at Dodger Stadium to support the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, who will graciously and magnanimously accept the Community Hero Award during the pre-game award ceremony.

The game will also include a 50/50 raffle to benefit the Los Angeles LGBT Center, the world’s largest provider of programs and services for LGBT individuals.”
