Altadena’s First Annual LGBTQ+ Pride Walkabout is almost here.
By Nic Arnzen
June is LGBTQ+ Pride month. On Saturday, June 11th, Altadena Town Councilmember Nic Arnzen will lead folks on a gentle walk through Central Altadena. Stops include Shopping and Flag Waving along North Lake and Mariposa, an interfaith exploration of faith at St. Mark’s, a free lunch in Triangle Park, and a Closing Festival at the Altadena Community Center that includes:
- community resource tables,
- health fair,
- live performances,
- LGBTQ+ themed art gallery,
- Regional LGBTQ+ Youth Summit, and a
- classic auto show.
There is something for everyone, and folks with mobility issues are welcome to join for any part of the day, as all locations are accessible.
There is even a free Pride Flag giveaway. If you want to hang a flag on your home and show your support throughout the month of June, head to the Altadena Senior Center at 560 E Mariposa St. on Saturday, June 4th from 2:00 – 4:00 pm for a free flag. Can’t make it on the 4th? No worries, starting Monday you can stop by Webster’s Community Pharmacy and get your free pride flag, if there are any left.
The event is also being generously supported and hosted by the Altadena Libraries, Altadena Senior Center, Altadena Sheriff’s Dept., Altadena Rotary Club, St. Mark’s Episcopal Church, L.A. County Department of Parks and Recreation, and the Altadena Heritage Society.
If you are looking to volunteer or want a sneak preview of the June 11 event, you can meet at the Altadena Main Library, 600 E. Mariposa, on Saturday, June 4th for an advance look at the route and what the day will hold.
Area businesses can still show their support by donating giveaways, refreshments, waters, and other necessities. Just contact Nic.Arnzen@AltadenaTownCouncil.org for info on how to become a “Participating Business.”
