SaMo Pride 2019: Santa Monica’s First Premiere LGBTQ+ Pride Celebration

in Real Talk/Uncategorized

Join the experience with The LGBT Sentinel while we celebrate Santa Monica’s
premiere LGBTQ+ PRIDE’s month-long calendar of events which began June 1, 2019.

The city of Los Angeles has always been a pioneering community in the lesbian,
gay, bisexual, transgender-inclusive heritage festivities by being first to ring in celebrations such as the first ever PRIDE parade and the continuous fight for the human civil rights of LGBT+ citizens. The City of Los Angeles Office of Historic Resources
(OHR) released America’s first LGBT Historic Context Statement through Survey LA which gives an in-depth description of the history of our LGBT community through annual surveys and is a highly recommended read for those who have not had the opportunity to
do so. It has been nearly 50 years since the Stonewall riots in 1969 that kicked off the LGBTQ movement in Los Angeles and we have had many firsts here in support since then. Pride Month will be expanding (for the first time in history) after
recognizing the success and increasing support in the city of Santa Monica and WE ARE HERE FOR IT!

Kicking off the month-long calendar of events on June 1, 2019, was the Run
+ Yoga = ROGA event which will be happening every Saturday during the month from 8 AM – 10 AM followed by the all-ages event Wake Up With The Waves. SaMo PRIDE events include the pier’s Smorgasburg: Pride Edition, the lights at the Promenade: Miles of Pride,
Gaywatch at The Birdcage: Venice Pride After Party, and positive environmental efforts such as the LUSH Beach Clean-up. Make sure to check out D’elia, Gino Perez, and Guz Harper who are presenting an LGBTQ art exhibit daily at The Heritage Museum. Also, don’t
forget that Dagwoods is giving 20% off any order including the Magical AF Glitter Pizza for the entire month of June.

As one of the co-media sponsors of the SaMo PRIDE’s debut celebration of inclusion
and family-friendly list of LGBTQ+ PRIDE-ful events, we want to ensure that you don’t miss an opportunity to join in on the exciting lineup of this first ever experience in Santa Monica. It has been a long time coming to make the Los Angeles PRIDE events more
of a city-wide celebration and SaMo PRIDE is a taking a huge leap in the right direction.
