JOIN US FOR
AN LGBTQ RESOURCE FAIR & CONCERT
Please join us as we recognize National LGBT Pride Month at “Valley Pride,” with a resource fair, call to action and concert featuring DJ Les Ortiz, Sister Mantos, Mariachi Arcoiris de Los Angeles and many others! We will have resources for individuals and families. Come enjoy a family-friendly Valley Pride celebration at Van Nuys City Hall with us on June 17th. Find out more and RSVP at my website.
LGBTQ people are our friends, family, neighbors and co-workers, and live in every neighborhood and every community in Los Angeles. It is important that we celebrate our diversity, here in the San Fernando Valley. Family is the most important thing to me, and at this resource fair we’ll provide contacts and information to families to support their LGBTQ family members, friends, sons and daughters.
We’ll have a diverse set of musicians and entertainers that are kid friendly – so bring the whole family down to enjoy a fun evening outdoors at Van Nuys City Hall.There’ll be something for everyone at our Valley Pride event.
