“Pride starts here in West Hollywood,” said City of West Hollywood Mayor Sepi Shyne. “I’m so excited to welcome everyone to WeHo Pride 2023. The OUTLOUD festival lineup is incredible and there will be a wonderful range of community programming during WeHo Pride Weekend and throughout Pride season starting on Harvey Milk Day on May 22 and running through the end of June. There will be something for everyone at WeHo Pride. I can’t wait to celebrate our amazing LGBTQ community!”
Created and produced by JJLA, OUTLOUD Music Festival was launched in 2020 as a virtual concert series, highlighting and elevating Queer artists and performers while many Pride celebrations were being canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. In 2021, OUTLOUD Music Festival partnered with Pride Live’s Stonewall Day and Adam Lambert to deliver a three-day, in-person concert series in Los Angeles, marking the return of live events to the city after the pandemic shutdown. Performers included Sofi Tukker, VINCINT, Brooke Eden, Daya, Hayley Kiyoko and more, plus an in-person appearance from former City of Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti. The event, which won a 2021 BizBash Event Experience Award for Best Cultural/Multicultural Event (Live Events & Experiences), was simultaneously streamed on Twitch, garnering 4.8 million views and providing the artists and queer charities highlighted throughout the weekend a unique and critical global platform.
JJLA remains committed to its non-profit and community partners. As such, tickets will be available for those organizations whose members need assistance in purchasing tickets. To apply for a hosted community pass, please visit: www.WeAreOutloud.com
