DTLA Proud is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization with a misson to strengthen and
empower the local LGBTQ+ & ally community in Downtown Los Angeles through
visibilty, volunteerism, partnerships and events; we are committed to celebrating
everyone’s story, spreading optimism, growing our community and expanding our
definition of diversity. Founded by a grassroots group of local residents, business
owners, community leaders and nightlife promoters, we were born from the idea that
together we could create an all-inclusive festival that represents the diverse LGBTQ+
population that lives, works and plays in LA's newest (and oldest) gayborhood.
