As home to the second-largest LGBT population in the country, Los Angeles showcases the diversity, vibrancy, and creative spirit of the LGBT community. The first Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Heritage Month (LGBT HM) Celebration in L.A. took place in 2011. L.A.’s legacy of championing equality is more important than ever - the theme of this year’s LGBT Heritage Month Celebration is “The Art of the Resistance.” Read on for highlights of LGBT Heritage Month events taking place in June throughout Los Angeles.

Official Heritage Month Celebrations in Los Angeles date back to 1949, when Mayor Fletcher Bowron issued a proclamation to recognize African American Heritage Month. Over time, the City has elected to celebrate various heritage months consistent with federally designated monthly observances. Many cities celebrate residents’ cultural heritage during these federally designated monthly observances.
