#SIZZLE! – A Carnival of Attraction – celebrates four years at the LA Pride festival. The sober #Sizzle section continues to offer interactive events with DJs, games, prizes and more in a fabulous carnival setting. The event runs from Friday, June 9, through Sunday, June, 11, as part of the LA Pride Festival.
#SIZZLE! is a reminder that people can have fun and enjoy Pride without alcohol. #SIZZLE! is co-sponsored by the City of West Hollywood, the Los Angeles LGBT Center, the West Hollywood Project and the Institute for Public Strategies.“Pride season can be very chaotic. There’s too much alcohol, too many drugs, too many sexual overtones and innuendos,” said organizer Robert Gamboa “#Sizzle is our anchor event put on by alcohol-free people, so we can create a safe sober space and allow people to come and enjoy Pride. Pride is for everyone, including those who no longer drink or use drugs.”
#SIZZLE! is open to the public Friday, June 9 through Sunday, June 11. The LA Pride event will have paid admission Saturday and Sunday.
In addition to #Sizzle!, there will also be a “Take a Sober Stand” contingency at the LA Pride #ResistMarch. A coalition of LGBT people in recovery and allies are gathering to demonstrate that they can lead fulfilling, joyful lives, free from addiction — participating in the #ResistMarch on Sunday, June 11. “Take a Sober Stand” is being organized by the Los Angeles LGBT Center. #SIZZLE! is a co-sponsor.
