    Megan Thee Stallion Brought the Body-Ody to LA Pride in the Park on Friday

    Thousands of members of the LGBTQ+ community and allies ascended onto the Los Angeles State Historic Park for day one of LA Pride in the Park on Friday, June 10, 2023, to take part in the largest Official Pride concerts in the country. The multi-stage concert experience hosted by Christopher Street West Association (CSW) – the 501(c)3 nonprofit that’s produced the iconic LA Pride celebration for more than 50 years – greeted guests with bursts of color offering a wide selection of activations, F&B vendors, activities, dancing, and world-renowned performances.

    Megan Thee Stallion, Friday night’s headliner on the Main Stage, shimmered head to toe in a crystal bodysuit. She performed her biggest hits including “Savage” and “Body.” The multi-GRAMMY Award-winner invited fans onto the stage for a dance off and even joined in on the fun. She continued to keep the crowd electric as she moved across the stage while fans sang every lyric to her songs. She later delivered an inspiring speech about self-acceptance which fans praised. She concluded her performance with a powerful visual as she posed centerstage with her dances surrounding her, fists in the air as they stood in front of a giant screen that displayed the Pride flag.
