AN LGBTQ RESOURCE FAIR & CONCERT

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.
RSVP today! You are invited to the CHMC South Park Speaker Series on April 6
