"LA Pride stands humbly on the shoulders of those that have come before us who worked tirelessly for nearly 50 years to create a movement," President of the CSW Board of Directors, Estevan Montemayor, said of the event. "Our new generation of leadership looks to honor that past and build on the many hard-fought LGBTQ+ civil rights victories. Our multi-generational community is, indeed, stronger together, and this year’s LA Pride celebration draws upon our diverse experiences to ensure that our collective voice is more powerful than ever."
