In honor of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Pride Month, the City of Pasadena once again raised the Progress Pride Flag on Wednesday, June 1, at Pasadena City Hall.
LGBT Pride Month commemorates the 1969 Stonewall riots in New York City, where activists and patrons of the Stonewall Inn pushed back against police harassment and persecution to which LGBT Americans were commonly subjected. This uprising marks the beginning of a movement to outlaw discriminatory laws and practices against LGBT Americans.
Today, organizations around the country honor June as Pride Month and dedicate celebrations, ceremonies, and memorials in recognition of the contributions made by LGBTQ individuals—locally, nationally, and internationally.
Love, Loud & Proud Celebration
Join in and champion the diverse LGBTQ+ community at the City of Pasadena’s inaugural Pride Month Celebration. Enjoy live entertainment, local food trucks, arts & crafts, face painting, and more with local LGBTQ organizations, community partners, and allies at this fun, free event. Food will be available to purchase.
Saturday, June 25, 6:00-8:00 pm
Pasadena City Hall, 100 N. Garfield Avenue, Pasadena, CA 91101
