The City of West Hollywood is giving the B in LGBTQ+ something to celebrate with the city’s first ever annual Bi Pride celebration on September 22, the day before Bi Visibility Day, which is designated annually on September 23. The event is being hosted by The City of West Hollywood, human Rights Campaign LA, and amBi – Bi Social.
Other cities have done Bi Pride proclamations, but this is believed to be the first city-wide Bi Pride celebration in the United States.
The event will start with a rally at 1:30pm in front of WeHo Park Auditorium, a Bi Visibility Walk at 2pm, a party at 3pm, followed by an after party at 6pm.
Party highlights include:
- Torrey Mercer performing her new single Boys/Girls.
- Kai Hazelwood (2018 Artist in Residence for The City of Los Angeles’ Cultural Affairs Department) will offer a chance to experience her project “Story Time Silent Disco.”
- Irene Suico Soriano will inspire with spoken word.
- More to be announced.

Anyone who is bi-friendly is welcome to join, regardless of sexual orientation. AmBi’s organizers host a variety of events, meet-ups, and other activities, with chapters in several cities.
