About Us

Christopher Street West Association, Inc., is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization within the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Trangsgender community of Greater Los Angeles. We are committed to the goals of human rights, education, outreach and  and equality for LA’s LGBT community. Founded in response to the Stonewall Rebellion on Christopher Street in New York on June 28, 1969, Christopher Street West conducted the first parade in the world advocating for gay rights in June of 1970 in Hollywood, CA. That tradition lives on today in the form of the LA PRIDE Music Festival and Parade, now in it's 46th year, taking place in the City of West Hollywood, CA.
