LA Pride festivities will continue Sunday with the LA Pride Parade, which was canceled for the past two years due to the pandemic. The parade, scheduled to begin at 10:30 a.m., is returning in a new location in Hollywood.
Paula Abdul will serve as “Icon Grand Marshal,” and other notable participants will be “Celebrity Grand Marshal” Mark Indelicato of “Ugly Betty” and “Hacks” and “Community Grand Marshal” Sir Lady Java.
The parade begins at Hollywood and Cahuenga boulevards, moving west on Hollywood, south on Highland Avenue, east on Sunset Boulevard back to Cahuenga. Following the parade, Pride Village will be open on Hollywood Boulevard, featuring sponsor tents, beverages, carnival attractions, vendors and performances.
The LA Pride Parade, produced by Christopher Street West, has been described as the second largest pride parade in the nation. Usually taking place in West Hollywood, the parade was canceled in 2020, in what would have been its 50th anniversary, because of COVID-19 precautions. Information about route, safety, security, float capacity, and further parade and programming will be available on www.lapride.org.
