A Transgender Pride Festival in Los Angeles
A National Women’s Soccer League expansion team in Los Angeles is presenting an “all ages” transgender pride festival which will feature drag performances and members of the controversial Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence.
Trans Pride LA 2023, which will take place on June 16th and 17th, is being presented by Angel City FC, according to the Los Angeles LGBT Center.
“This all-ages, free event expects 2,000+ attendees over two days,” the website explains.
The Los Angeles LGBT Center, which is hosting the event, also stated that the “Trans Town Hall,” which will take place on the 16th, will include “dynamic performances” from “drag all-stars.”
It will also feature speeches from a number of different people from the drag and transgender communities, including “members of the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence,” an organization of drag performers that have been accused of mocking Christians and Catholics.
The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence have been at the center of controversy since the Los Angeles Dodgers invited the group to its annual Pride night celebration, igniting an uproar from Catholics and Christians. The organization was subsequently uninvited from the event before then being reinvited.
The trans pride festival will also feature seven “educational workshops” which will include:
- Advocacy 101
- Kinkables – Affordable Household Kink
- Revolting Gender: Sex and Playing with Gender
The event will also include a “Children & Families Activity Area” with supervised activities and several featured children’s workshops for the duration of the event.
Meanwhile, the event website says, “Trans Pride LA has taken on a very specific urgency” because of the “over 500 pieces of anti-trans and anti-LGBTQ+ legislation in our country, we are seeing a dramatic escalation of transphobic rhetoric.” It also bemoaned the “criminalization of transgender health care,” which includes puberty blockers, cross-sex hormones, and irreversible sex change operations.
While Angel City FC is listed as the event’s “presenting sponsor,” other companies, like Telemundo and Comcast NBCUniversal, are listed as “official sponsors.” A list of “supporting sponsors” includes ADP and Pacific Western Bank, while American Airlines is the event’s “official airline partner.”
The Los Angeles LGBT Center hosted an “all-ages” drag march on Easter Sunday earlier this year, which it said was intended to “protest the rising tide of anti-LGBTQ+ legislation across the country.”
Angel City FC did not respond to a request for comment.
