ABOUT

BY THE COMMUNITY. FOR THE COMMUNITY.

DTLA Proud is committed to celebrating everyone’s story, to spreading optimism, to growing our community and to expanding our definition of diversity.

We were born from the idea that we could create an all inclusive community that represents the diverse population that lives, works and plays downtown. With approximately 9,000 people in attendance at our inaugural DTLA Proud Festival in 2016, local leaders took notice. Councilmember Jose Huizar, LA County Supervisor Hilda Solis and Assemblymember Miguel Santiago participated at the event and championed our mission. On August 7, 2016, the California State Assembly presented us with a Certificate of Recognition for our dedication to the Downtown Los Angeles LGBTQ Community.
