    The Women’s Freedom Festival took over the West Hollywood Beverly Hills gateway area on Santa Monica Boulevard for WeHo Pride weekend. The event offered live concert performances, poetry and speeches as part of the West Hollywood Pride Street Fair Community Stage on Saturday, June 3. Produced by the L-Project and hosted by Jackie Steele & Stevi Shari, the all-inclusive and multicultural event returned for a second year to celebrate an amazing lineup of LGBTQ+BIPOC artists.

    The 2023 Women’s Freedom Festival included a full of art, music, and protesting with performances by Madame Gandhi, Mila Miranda, Shiah Luna, DJ Asha, Mariah Counts, Mortasay, Krisizz KP, Audley Music, JFP, DJ Crystal Iris, Cherry Bomb Baes, and Kingqueen.

    The L-Project LA believes that elevating emerging artists within the queer community is vitally important because it gives marginalized creatives, especially, women and non-binary creatives, an opportunity to showcase their talents on stages and venues that have been closed to them in the past – including previous WeHo Pride events. The Women’s Freedom Festival provides a platform for representation within the community.

    Community partners include She Angels Foundation, Jewish Foundation LA, California Families in Focus – Long Beach, Black Lesbians United (BLU), and Earthlodge Center for Transformation – Long Beach, among many more, plus experience a variety of unique artists and vendors throughout the festival.

    The annual WeHo Pride Dyke March rally was also part of the Women’s Freedom festival with the Motorcycle Contingent for Equality leading the march down Santa Monica Blvd.

    The L-Project is an historically lesbian non-profit 501(c)3 organization founded in 2015 by Elisabeth Sandberg, in West Hollywood, California. The mission of the organization is to promote and support emerging LGBTQI BI+POC women and non-binary creatives through the arts and technology.
