LA Pride Parade canceled for second year in a row, COVID-19 cited – Deadline

The LA Pride parade, one of the nation’s oldest and most significant LGBTQ celebrations, is canceled for the second year in a row.

Although the pandemic is easing in California, parade organizers said the event’s large scale made planning difficult. They vowed to return in 2022 and said they are now working on this event

“Safety was our # 1 priority,” said Sharon-Franklin Brown, Chairman of the Board of Directors of Christopher Street West, the non-profit organisation which produces LA Pride. “It takes time to organize a parade, [and] we weren’t sure we were going to be where we are now, which is this incredible space where everything opens up.

The LA Pride Parade usually takes place every June during Pride Month. It was set for June 15 of this year, when the state plans to reopen completely.

Instead of the parade, producers Christopher Street West will host a concert with TikTok which will be broadcast live on the app on June 10. The Thrive with Pride show will feature Charli XCX and LGBTQ performers who have yet to be announced.

There will also be a TV special on KABC-TV at 9 p.m. on June 12.
