LA Weekly - The DTLA Proud Festival just completed its fourth consecutive year at its home in Pershing Square where — despite news-grabbing headlines about an apparent transphobic incident that occurred at a bar nearby — delivered the same celebratory, circuit-like party atmosphere that the downtown LGBTQ community has come to expect from the event.

This year, DTLA Proud offered over 100 LGBTQ-identified performing artists, an urban water park with an in-house DJ (a Summertramp tie-in), a curated collection of queer marketplace merchants and “Artist Alley” vendors, an LGBTQ history exhibit in partnership with One Archives, multiple photo booths and various art installations from local downtown artists.
