One of the California prides I’ve never been to, but have always wanted to check out, is Long Beach. Long Beach’s 40th Annual Pride Celebration is set for August 4-6 this year so mark your calendars now folks.
Long Beach Pride™, a 501(c)3 non-profit, is an all-volunteer organization that produces the annual three-day Long Beach Pride™ festival, parade and teen pride. The third largest Pride festival and parade in California, we celebrate the LGBTQ+ community with a focus on inclusion, and work to educate the wider community that diversity builds a stronger and healthier society. Taking pride in what we have achieved since 1984, we strive to teach the future generations that the battle for acceptance continues.
