This year’s LA Pride in the Park is ready to return, and attendees are already preparing for a weekend of love, inclusivity, and Pride. The two-day LGBTQ+ festival will take place on June 9-10 in Los Angeles State Historic Park and will feature an impressive list of artists, including headliners Megan Thee Stallion and Mariah Carey.

On Instagram, Mariah Carey shared her delight about the event, writing, ““I’m thrilled and honored to be a part of LA Pride 2023! I am happy to be back in-person celebrating with the LGBTQIA+ community here in Southern California and throughout all of the lands!!! Let’s come together to celebrate love, inclusion, and Pride.”
“This incredible event advocates for diversity, inclusivity and equality, so I’m honored to perform and have a blast with all of the Hotties in attendance.” Megan Thee Stallion said.
This year’s theme is “All Out with Pride,” which honors the LGBTQIA+ community’s diversity, resilience, and joy. Single-day passes begin at $69 and weekend passes begin at $199, and are on sale now at lapride.org.
Last year’s event featured performances by Christina Aguilera as well as appearances by Kim Petras, Paris Hilton, and Mya. The lineup for this year is likely to be as strong.
Aside from the performances, LA Pride in the Park will include a variety of events, exhibitions, and vendors celebrating the LGBTQIA+ community. The event organizers have indicated that safety precautions will be put in place to guarantee that all participants have a safe and pleasurable experience.
Since 1970, LA Pride in the Park has been an annual tradition in Los Angeles, and it has evolved to become one of the world’s largest Pride events. Visitors from all over the world attend the event, which serves as a platform to celebrate, educate, and advocate for LGBTQIA+ rights. This year’s gathering is especially significant since it marks the return of in-person Pride celebrations after the pandemic drove many to go virtual. The epidemic has had a significant impact on the LGBTQIA+ community, with numerous activities and meetings being canceled or
postponed. The return of LA Pride in the Park allows the community to come together to celebrate their perseverance and fortitude.
“We’re pleased to bring LA Pride in the Park back in-person this year, and we’re honored to have Megan Thee Stallion and Mariah Carey as our headliners,” said LA Pride President Sharon-Franklin Brown. This year’s event is all about honoring the LGBTQIA+ community’s variety, strength, and joy, and we can’t wait to see everyone out and proud at the park.”
Fans and performers alike are getting excited as the event approaches. The weekend of love, acceptance, and celebration that is LA Pride in the Park promises to be a reminder of the power of community in overcoming adversity.
