    In honor of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Pride Month, the City of Pasadena once again raised the Progress Pride Flag on Monday, June 3, 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

    Saturday, June 22 ~ 5:00 - 9:00 pm
    Pasadena City Hall, 100 N. Garfield Avenue, Pasadena, CA 91101
    Join us at iconic Pasadena City Hall as we champion our diverse LGBTQ+ community. This free event features drag performances and story time, music by DJ Keelez, photo op area, vaccine clinic, community resources, and food for purchase. For more information, call (626) 744-7500.

    This year’s celebration will be filled with fun surprises! Come and enjoy music by LA's DJ Keelez; special performances by local drag queens Tia Wanna and Anya K. and drag king Jesse Sangria; drag story time; arts & crafts, including face painting; a photo area by professional photographers Girl Squad Media; dance contests; inflatables; a vaccine clinic (COVID-19, mpox, hepatitis A and meningitis) hosted by Pasadena Public Health Department; food trucks; and more. Food will be available for purchase.

    Attendees also have the opportunity to meet representatives from many of these local LGBTQ+ organizations, community partners, and allies:

    MUSE/IQUE presents "The Judas of Folk: Dylan Plugs In" on Saturday and Sunday, June 22 and 23, in Memorial Park. ​

    It was outrageous. It was audacious. It was electric. When Bob Dylan plugged in his guitar for an electric set at the Newport Folk Festival in 1965, he changed the conversation about the rules of music and art forever. With his stunning “betrayal” in Newport, Dylan challenged the conventions of folk and propelled the genre into thrilling new territory. Join MUSE/IQUE as we trace the progression of folk music from its traditional roots to its role as the music of movements and protests; to Dylan’s bold swing, and beyond.

    This highly anticipated, second annual Open House is back: This show is free to the public! RSVP required.

    • Free Live Music
    • Community Celebration
    • Special discounts on membership
    • Gifts, giveaways, and more!

    Recommended for ages 9 and up. Theater-style chair seating will be provided for free admissions, and GA members. Reserved table seating will be provided for quartet membership and above.

    Make Some Noise: Music and Stories of America Defiance and Hope

    In their 2024 season, MUSE/IQUE spotlights the transformative American artists and thinkers who rejected norms and limitations to forge a new and better future. When artists make loud choices and take bold stances, they teach us that nothing is impossible. Join us in a celebration of the stories and music that moved America.
