Any LA Pride attendees? Looks like it's a mess.

LA Pride oversells festival and is forced to turn hundreds away

who the fuck flies from NYC to attend the LA Pride march? The NYC parade is end of June, calm down, gay mcgaymerston

[quote]“The Festival has become a full on Rave. I went this evening because I wanted to simply stroll around the festival, but the line of early 20 something people was 20 people deep for several blocks, said Christopher Johnson, 44, of Long Beach. “I’m glad it’s successful but I’m not welcome. There’s nothing there for me anymore and it makes me feel old.”

HISSSSSSSSS!

Why do you need to buy tickets for Pride? It's always free in SF and NYC.

by Anonymousreply 406/10/2018

LA charge's about $20 for entry into a gated "festival."

Pride Island, the replacement for the Pier Dance, isn't free. In fact, the second day, with Kylie as the headliner, is sold out.

by Anonymousreply 606/10/2018

What does this $20 ticket buy you? Just access to a bunch of booths from businesses advertising Out, Steamworks, Boy Butter, and Red Bull? Why pay $20 to be advertised to?

I'll never forget dancing with a shirtless Chris Meloni at the Pier Dance back when he was on OZ.

r7, to watch a bunch of nobodies perform:

So I'm guessing it's just a big party with little connection to anything gay?

Pride Festivals need to start coming up with more creative ways to celebrate.

by Anonymousreply 1106/10/2018

R5, It's $30 for a single day, $40 for the full weekend. Plus $5 if you wanted a wristband delivered to you prior to the event.

Key West Pride Parade is today!

LOL @ r13. But we feel excluded from your new acronym, please correct this slight immediately.

by Anonymousreply 1606/10/2018

Aren't there a ton of pride festivals in LA though? Is there one in Santa Barbara? cuz' I feel like I should go there and fuck a hot surfer.

by Anonymousreply 1706/10/2018

Is it actually for gays this year?

by Anonymousreply 1806/10/2018

It's for queers. Gays not welcome.

r17 I know there are Prides in Long Beach, Palm Springs, and San Diego; not sure about any others in the area.

by Anonymousreply 2006/10/2018

Pathetically sad.

R17, The Pacific Pride Festival (Santa Barbara) isn't until August 25.

Hearing Tony winner Andrew Garfield repeatedly use the phrase "LGBTQ Community" gave me fucking HIVES!

Just saying. I say Gay Pride/Gay Community, the BTQs should have their own "festival".

Those photos in the article look grim. A bunch of tweets staring at some moronic EDM DJ I suppose. And no convenient place to peepee.

by Anonymousreply 2506/10/2018

This is a huge mess, they really fucked up. Get rid of the goat committee and have it in downtown LA next time.

by Anonymousreply 2606/10/2018

Any city that wants to put up a proper Pride celebration must visit "Madrid Orgullo" to see how it's done.

by Anonymousreply 2706/10/2018

Not a surprise. The organizers have been failing and flailing since the mid-'90's.

by Anonymousreply 2806/11/2018

So 1990s

The attendance has gotten bigger since we let straight girls with blue hair and a persecution complex join the acronym.

Sorry, I mean “non-binary”

by Anonymousreply 3006/11/2018

Maybe they could use some cis gay men with degrees in something useful to properly manage the event.

by Anonymousreply 3106/11/2018

That is what I was thinking, R30. The photos are primarily of teen girls.

by Anonymousreply 3206/11/2018

I don't want to dance and get flirty in close proximity to bull dykes, weirdoes and goat people.

by Anonymousreply 3306/11/2018

The crowd was mostly girls.

by Anonymousreply 3406/11/2018

I bet the LA party doesn't get as messy as this Canadian one.

The SJWs went wild—

by Anonymousreply 3506/13/2018

Stupid people and people who want to make it about things other than gay are ruining it.

I'd rather go to Electric Daisy Carnival, for the colors if nothing else,

by Anonymousreply 3706/13/2018

Ah, that is the link to the concerns of the homeless, in CA and I guess what is being repeated in US. Maybe they all get an intersectional script.

“We feel strongly that police should not be welcomed to march in pride parades because police have done little to seriously address the constant mistreatment of trans people, Indigenous people, Black people, people of colour and the homeless community,” the group’s media liaison Agnieszka Kucharska said in a statement.

“Engaging in civil disobedience is the true meaning of the history of pride, which was and is the struggle to create a better world for all.”

The group, which billed itself as a coalition of queer and trans people of colour, additionally demanded the Edmonton Pride Festival Society restructure its board and staff to have better representation of ethnic minorities and trans people.

I thought the history of Pride was about GAYS and LESBIANS?

by Anonymousreply 3806/13/2018

Well, shit. Edmonton. Fucking redneck oil sniffers.

Who’s keeping 5he,profits from scamming the festival attendees. I wouldn’t pay anything on principle.

by Anonymousreply 4006/13/2018

Despite having such a large crowd, at least no one crapped, urinated or vomited in our driveway this year.

by Anonymousreply 4106/13/2018

Pride has been co-opted just like GLB orgs. Since there are limited indigenous people and T, they seem to have filled in with young, straight, white girls. Pride, the new Tumblr.

by Anonymousreply 4206/13/2018

What kind of flag were people thumping at the fest? Is it LGBQTpinkXYZ this year?

My prediction for next years outraged and modified flag will include:

Azure - for women with prostate cancer Topaz - for LGB murderers Opaque - to memorialize all the brave QTpinkXYZ that died for their flag colour

by Anonymousreply 4306/13/2018

They would never try to pull this shit at the St. Patrick's day parade.

by Anonymousreply 4406/13/2018

That's right boys, it's time to part ways with this fucking LGBTSBMVXKTE7 mess.

Our new flag should just have an erect penis on it.

by Anonymousreply 4506/13/2018

R45 You're right.

The lesbians and the others love the rainbow flag because it negates gay sex.
