About Pride Rally
The Pride Rally is an exciting night of music, dance, and entertainment designed to bring people and communities together in support of LGBT rights and causes.
The Pride Rally, (formerly known as the Pink Party) is celebrating its 10th year anniversary in 2017, and we are excited to host this annual event in a similar location where it kicked off 10 years ago, outdoors in Downtown Long Beach. Throughout its history, the Pink Party drew thousands of people from all around the region, growing into larger venues, closing off streets and expanded quickly, with support from the community and other LGBT organizations and businesses. Now, under the leadership of two community organizers, the newly rebranded Pride Rally is sure to bring the excitement and entertainment that made the Pink Party such a success.
The Inaugural Pride Rally will be held on Friday, May 19th on the Promenade in Downtown Long Beach. This event will also kick off the Long Beach Pride Weekend, as the Pride Rally is the official kickoff to the weekend’s festivities. A portion of the proceeds will benefit The LGBTQ Center of Long Beach. We have agreed to make our minimum donation equal to the largest amount The LGBTQ Center of Long Beach has ever raised from previous Pink Party events.
We encourage people to get in touch with us. We are looking for sponsors, volunteers and other people to help promote and spread the word of the Pride Rally. Please CONTACT US to get involved. With your help and support of this great community, the Pride Rally will be one of the must-attend events of the year.
