LOS ANGELES -- After a long two-year hiatus, the LA Pride Parade made its big return.
This year's theme was #LoveYourPride, and the event not only celebrated the LGBTQIA+ community of Los Angeles and its allies, but it also celebrated the parade's 50th anniversary, a historical moment that was postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Co-hosts included actress Raven-Symoné and her wife Miranda Pearman-Maday.
More than 130 parade floats, exotic cars, performers marched in style.
Three Pride grand marshals led the event, including legendary activist and trailblazer Sir Lady Java as the Community Grand Marshal, actor Mark Indelicato as the Celebrity Grand Marshal, and Paula Abdul as the newly-created Icon Grand Marshal.
Additionally, there will be a free Pride Village street fair between Cahuenga and Vine from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m.
The fair includes music, art, booths, food, drinks, and a ferris wheel.
A beverage garden will be hosted on Cosmo Street between Hollywood Boulevard and Selma Avenue.
Sponsor tents will be on the section of Hollywood Boulevard between Ivar Avenue and Vine Street.
And if you'd like to attend or watch the San Francisco San Francisco Pride Parade and Celebration, we have you covered! We'll stream that live on Sunday, June 26.
Sunday's LA Pride Parade and Pride Village are free and open to all ages.
LA Pride intends to follow L.A. County's current COVID guidelines.
