The L-Project LA has partnered with the City of West Hollywood to host The Women’s Freedom Festival, a virtual pride event featuring LGBTQ+ BIPOC women and non-binary artists. The Women’s Freedom Festival will premiere live on Saturday, June 19, 2021, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. PST.
The pride event will bring four jammed-packed hours of music, art, comedians, fashion, poetry, guest speakers, and more. The festival is free, but guests may donate to support The L-Project LA’s Mission, which is to promote, inspire and support women and non-binary creatives through the arts and technology. The L-Project LA is a 501c3 non-profit organization. All donations are tax deductible.
“I’m very excited for people all over the country–all over the world for that matter–to experience our community, to be entertained by our outstanding artist, and to see that they are represented in the Women’s Freedom Festival,” said The L-Project LA’s Founding President, and WFF creator, Chris Baldwin. “To have Pride is to inspire and be inspired, to celebrate and participate… We look forward to joining hands virtually from West Hollywood, California.”
“The Women’s Freedom Festival is filled with powerful and brilliant people,” added The L-Project LA’s Vice President and co-Producer of WFF, Madonna Cacciatore. “I’m honored and humbled that this wonderful event is my first since joining forces with the L-Project LA. Happy Pride.”
In 2013, the iconic lesbian bar The Palms closed for good in the city of West Hollywood. Spaces for LGBTQI women disappeared. Seeing a need for lesbians to meet outside of the LA bar scene, L-Project LA was formed in 2015. It would become a multi-cultural organization that promotes lesbian art and culture. The organization created the very first Frida Festival, an art and music festival celebrating the life and legacy of a Frida Kahlo. They have consistently grown since, thanks to the helping hands of the community. Their board is an all volunteer, multi-cultural, and inter-generational group of LesBiQueerTI spirits with a passion for uplifting others.
