"We're thrilled to have women, the majority of them LGBTQIA+ artists of color, lead our mainstage event to celebrate our return to Pride," said Gerald Garth, Vice President of Community Programming and Initiatives. "Los Angeles represents a broad range of cultures, backgrounds and identities, especially across the BIPOC communities. Bringing influential and diverse artists is a nod to the many different people reflected within our community."

Ticketed attendees will receive an RFID wristband to allow for contactless entry.
