A favorite Los Angeles LGBT Center event returned in June.
After many years in another part of town, Pride returned to Hollywood in a big way in 2022. Similarly, Trans Pride returned to The Los Angeles LGBT Center‘s The Village at Ed Gould Plaza on June 16-18 for its twelfth consecutive outing having been a virtual event for the previous two years.
“These last two years have been extremely hard on our community,” said Gina Bigham, the program manager of the Center’s Trans* Lounge and organizer of the event. “As we watch the continued assault on trans rights across the country, we are determined to celebrate and show the world our strength and resilience.”
In all, more than 1,300 attendees showed up for an empowering free weekend of events organized for the TGI/ENBY+ community. Opening night events included a Big Queer Convo with special guest Vico Ortiz of the HBO Max show Our Flag Means Death, a dance party with hundreds of guests, and a gallery opening by trans artists.
Additional events included a resource fair, a flower crown-making workshop, and the VarieTy show with performance art, an aerialist, a juggler, the Trans Chorus of Los Angeles, and more.
