2023 LA Pride Parade and Pride Village Returns to Hollywood June 11
LOS ANGELES, CA (May 15, 2023) – Christopher Street West Association (CSW) – the 501(c)3 nonprofit that has produced the iconic LA Pride celebration for 53 years – announced the official route of the LA Pride Parade, taking place on Sunday, June 11, 2023, with a step-off at 11:00am.
The parade route will begin at Sunset Blvd and Highland Ave heading north, then east onto Hollywood Blvd, then south onto Cahuenga Blvd, ending at Sunset Blvd and Cahuenga Blvd.
This area’s route is approximately one mile long, with about 150 contingents consisting of revelers from SoCal’s top LGBTQ+ nonprofits, employee resource groups, city agencies, local, regional, and national businesses, clubs, bands, floats, and more than a few surprises.
CSW also announced today that Margaret Cho will be honored as the Icon Grand Marshal, the ACLU SoCal will be this year’s Community Grand Marshal, and a new category, Legacy Grand Marshal, will honor and celebrate the life of Leslie Jordan.
Last year, the Parade saw over 145,000 spectators, and we anticipate the same, if not more!
Additionally, The Hollywood Partnership, the nonprofit organization that oversees the public realm in the Hollywood Business Improvement District (BID), has once again partnered with LA Pride to bring the LA Pride Village back to Hollywood Blvd.
LA Pride Village is the official place to be after the LA Pride Parade, with festivities taking place from 12:00 pm to 8:00 pm, just steps from the official parade route. Vendors, activities, food a stage performances from Pride notables such as Mariachi Arcoiris, the Gay Freedom Band LA, Secret Circus, Dance Church, and LA’s favorite queer AAPI drag party, Send Noodz.
