    PHOTOS! L-Project LA Hosts Rainbow Family Day Picnic for WeHo Pride

    It was a sunny day on Saturday, June 17, 2023, which was a perfect day for a picnic at Plummer Park in West Hollywood. The L-Project hosted the second annual Rainbow Family Day Picnic on the lawn facing Vista Street, next to Fiesta Hall. The event was a casual affair co-sponsored by the City of West Hollywood as part of the ongoing WeHo Pride celebration for Pride Month in the month of June.

    The Rainbow Family Day Picnic was born out the idea that it would be an extension to the L Project’s Women’s Freedom Festival in 2022, but mainly focusing on family. Producers Chris Baldwin and Madonna Cacciatore wanted to create a space that would be fun and inclusive to queer families with children and chosen families with pets, so dogs were welcome.

    The event offered freshly grilled burgers and hot dogs on a first-come-first-serve basis (they even had veggie options). A DJ kept the music playing and some vendors took advantage of the opportunity to promote their small businesses. Families brought blankets and chairs and enjoyed the day while children played on the lawn. There were also plenty of sunbathers who seemed to enjoy the festive atmosphere.

    The Rainbow Family Day Picnic was complemented by two other events taking place at Plummer Park on Saturday. There was the WeHo Arts Craft Fair on the Santa Monica side of the park, by the WeHo Rec Center, and Q Conn, the queer comic book convention, also on its second year, offered plenty to see while people relaxed on the lawn.

    About the L-Project

    In 2013, the iconic lesbian bar in West Hollywood, The Palms, closed down for good. Spaces for LGBTQIA+BIPOC women disappeared. Seeing a need for lesbians to meet outside of the LA bar scene, in 2015, Elisabeth Sandberg formed a multicultural organization to promote lesbian art and culture. The L-Project created the very first Frida Festival, an art and music festival celebrating the life and legacy of a Frida Kahlo. the organization has consistently grown since then, all thanks to the helping hands of the community. The L-Project board is an all volunteer, multicultural, and inter-generational group of LesBiQueerTI spirits with a passion for uplifting others.
