    #ResistMarch

    Free
    Sunday, June 11, 8:00am
    Begins: Intersection of Hollywood/Highland
    Ends: Santa Monica Blvd and La Peer Ave.

    This year a march will take place from Hollywood (where LA Pride was born in 1970) to West Hollywood, where LA Pride grew up. Instead of a parade celebrating our past progress, the LGBTQ+ community and its allies will march in solidarity with and on the same day as the National Equality March for Unity and Pride in Washington DC.

    This intersectional diversity is reflected in the wide array of over 100 partner organizations that have committed their support to the #ResistMarch, including GLAAD, Black Lives Matters, ACLU, the Human Rights Campaign, APLA, Bienestar, the City of West Hollywood, among others.

    Location: March begins at 8 am at Hollywood and Highland and finishes near West Hollywood Park. www.resistmarch.org

    March Route: https://www.resistmarch.org/coursemap

    Street Closures: https://pride.weho.org/street-closure-info

    (One City One Pride is organizing a series of free artist-led protest sign making workshops leading up to the march. Click here to find a protest sign making workshop!)
