We’ve compiled the best LGBT-related happenings in Los Angeles for the month of June. From the world premiere of a documentary about lesbian activist Jeanne Cordova to a complex love triangle performing at The Wallis, there’s plenty to see and do this month!
The Pride is a gorgeously-drawn drama alternating between two very distinct time periods and sets of characters whose fate is written by their eras. In 1958, Philip is married to Sylvia, but is secretly attracted to her colleague Oliver. In 2008, Philip lives with his boyfriend Oliver, who continually destroys their relationship with his addiction to casual sex and turns to their friend Sylvia for guidance and support. As the past and present worlds collide, The Pride’s complex love triangle provides a provocative, humorous, and insightful look at fidelity and forgiveness.
Drag superstar Jackie Beat, dance music icons Martha Wash (It’s Raining Men) and Kristine W (16 #1 hits), and DJs The Perry Twins kick off LA Pride with Glitterama, an 80s & 90s concert & party benefiting PAWS/LA. Launched in the 1980s in response to the companion animal-related crises faced by gay men financially and physically debilitated by HIV/AIDS, PAWS/LA continues to help people and pets in need. Celebrate Pride with friends and fellow animal lovers at the AVALON Hollywood on Thursday, June 8—all for a great cause—with a special 50% off discount for Los Angeles LGBT Center members here.
