Long Beach Lesbian & Gay Pride

LGBT in Long Beach & San Pedro

From a humble parade in 1984, Long Beach Pride has become a weekend-long festival and is one of the largest events in Long Beach, attracting some 80,000 visitors each year. Highlights include multiple music stages (recent headliners: Jody Watley, Chaka Khan and Ty Herndon) and a Sunday morning parade along Ocean Blvd. Proceeds go toward community groups.
