The COVID-19 pandemic challenged the DTLA PROUD organizers to re-examine the true meaning of Pride without physical events. Coupled with the historic uprising against racial injustice and discrimination, this film captures a moment in time when despite these common struggles, the breadth and diversity of the LGBTQ+ community is becoming more connected and united than ever before. The PROUD in a Pandemic film is a time capsule of stories about the innovation, survival, and resilience of the LGBTQ+ community.

Thank you to our PROUD Sponsors
