LA Pride x Pride Makes a Difference
LA Pride’s 2021 theme is Thrive with Pride. We chose it, not just to celebrate life as we slowly emerge from the pandemic, to underscore the belief that thriving is an act of social justice, not only for the LGBTQ+ community, but for all the underserved or overlooked members of the vast, diverse community of Greater Los Angeles.
LA Pride partnered with Big Sunday for the entire month of June to create Pride Makes a Difference, our 30-day calendar of events focused on volunteering, community service, and opportunities to donate time, goods and money to worthy causes that benefit our community, and many Los Angeles nonprofits.
Our calls-to-action in the areas of food insecurity, housing insecurity, health & wellness, and sustainabilty give everyone an opportunity to help a neighbor, help a fellow Angeleno, help each other.
We intend to make Pride Makes a Difference a permanent part of LA Pride programming going forward, and we hope you join us on the journey.
Who is Big Sunday?
Big Sunday connects people through helping. They see the world not as “haves-and-have-nots” but as “haves-and-have-mores” – everyone has some way that they can help somebody else, and we all have to look out for one another. Big Sunday produces, promotes or sponsors more than 2000 ways for people to give back every year. Please check them out at www.bigsunday.org.
