The parade steps off at 11:00 A.M. and runs along Santa Monica Blvd. from Crescent Heights to Robertson Blvd. We will be marching in solidarity with our Lutheran colleagues as we give thanks for the work and witness we have been given to do together!
Bishops Egertson & Glasspool will be riding in the traditional parade convertibles, accompanied by Episcopalians & Lutherans from all over SoCal.
DON'T MISS THIS HISTORIC OPPORTUNITY TO MAKE GOD'S LOVE TANGIBLE ALONG SANTA MONICA BLVD!
"Partners in Pride" T-SHIRTS celebrating our new Bishop and "The Episcopal Church welcomes YOU!" will be on sale Sunday morning from 9:00 to 12:00. We'll be selling them out the trunk of +Mary's car, so look for them there. Shirts are also available at many churches in the diocese before Pride weekend, and may be ordered any time by emaliing firstname.lastname@example.org. The cost is $15 per shirt (and $5.00 per order, if sent by mail) -- checks payable to "Diocese of Los Angeles."
Visit our Pride Archives for photos from years past ... get out those walking shoes, dig out the sunscreeen and let's make this the BEST EVER TURN OUT for Dio L.A. @ L.A. Pride!

When does the parade start? After the Eucharist, we will have about an hour for coffee, breakfast, and people watching, before we report back around 10:30–11 a.m. to the staging area assigned to our parade contingent.
What about parking? Try carpooling in two cars, and park one at the end of the parade route (somewhere in the vicinity of Robertson and Melrose) and then proceed to the Street Eucharist in the second car. If you only have one car, you may want to park it near the halfway point at La Cienega and Santa Monica Blvd., and walk east and north to the street Eucharist location.
What should I wear? As we mentioned above, T-shirts will be on sale for $15.00 at the Eucharist site. Clergy encouraged to wear their clerical collars. Comfortable shoes, hats and sunscreen!
