WEST HOLLYWOOD, Calif. -- You wouldn’t expect a city that rightly views itself as the gay capital of Southern California to express its Pride in three short days. The City of West Hollywood this year has scheduled 40 days of arts, cultural, educational and community events. This year’s One City One Pride events are all grouped under the theme “I Do,” to celebrate the one-year anniversary of the legalization of same-sex marriage in California. Many events are free, with some requiring ticket purchase and/or advance RSVP.
One City One PrideThis year the city also has launched an online service that allows you to search for One City One Pride events by location or by date and type of event. For calendar updates, check that or Events at WEHOville.com. Here are a few highlights to whet your appetite:
The event began Thursday, May 22 with "Love is Love: The Five Year Road to Marriage," a special exhibition celebrating the struggle for marriage equality featuring photos taken at Prop 8 rallies across Southern California. A reception will feature classical renditions of pop songs by Queertet, and special comments by Mayor John D’Amico and photographer David McCoy. West Hollywood Library, 625 N.
