LA Pride has once again partnered with the Dodgers for the fourth LGBTQ+ Pride Night at Dodgers Stadium. Also added, is a partnership with Cinespia to bring LGBTQ+ Movie Night at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery. It’s all part of the monthlong “Thrive with Pride” June calendar. Both are ticketed events.
The first in-person event for LA Pride since 2019 will be June 11 with longtime community partner, the World Series-winning Los Angeles Dodgers. The second confirmed in-person event on June 26 represents a new collaboration with Cinespia, the producers of the legendary Hollywood Forever Cemetery outdoor movies.
“It was always our intention to offer our community opportunities to safely celebrate Pride together in accordance with safety guidelines by both the CDC and Los Angeles County,” said Sharon-Franklin Brown, CSW board president. “We know our community wants to be together, and we want to do everything we can to create these moments. This is why we’re providing other larger capacity, outdoor entertainment for all ages of our community.”
To kickstart LA Pride’s first in-person event since 2019, an LGBTQ+ artist will sing the National Anthem. First Responders from the LA LGBTQ+ Community will get a special moment of recognition. After the game, vaccinated fans will be welcomed onto the field to watch the first Friday Night Fireworks show of the season. Other surprises to be announced soon.
A special event ticket package is available to fully-vaccinated fans that includes a game ticket for the 7:10 p.m. game against the Texas Rangers and an exclusive Dodger Pride-themed t-shirt.
