An unofficial WeHo Dyke March and Protest for Equality is scheduled to take place this Saturday, June 19, 2021. The march is a call to “take back the street!”
Los Angeles Bikers and marchers are invited for a late morning unofficial WeHo Dyke March to take over the road. The meetup will be at Sal Guarriello Veterans’ Memorial, at 8441 Santa Monica Blvd, on the corner of Santa Monica Blvd and Holloway Dr (across the street from Barney’s Beanery). The march and ride will start at 10:15 a.m. and head west on Santa Monica Boulevard towards Rocco’s restaurant and bar located at 8900 Santa Monica Boulevard.
Rocco’s West Hollywood will be the hangout where a watch party is scheduled to view The Women’s Freedom Festival (Produced by The L-Project) from 11am to 3pm.
The L-Project LA 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 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.
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.
