The City of Santa Monica
“Coming Out West: LGBTQ+ Elders Share Their Stories” Art Exhibition
The Santa Monica History Museum is launching “Coming Out West: LGBTQ+ Elders Share Their Stories,” from June 1- December 17, 2023. The exhibition is a compilation of images, art, oral histories and objects that tell the history of the LGBTQ+ community through the eyes of those who lived through it and shaped it. Santa Monica holds a diverse history of LGBTQ+ culture, activism and community, and the exhibit will share some of those local stories.
SaMo Pride Festival
On June 3, from 11 am – 4 pm, downtown Santa Monica will be transformed into a PRIDE Zone, with live musical performances, games, giveaways and PRIDE-related treats. The day’s events are free.
Made with Pride Marketplace
The Made with Pride Marketplace is happening every Friday – Sunday at 395 Santa Monica Place. Throughout the month of June, in partnership with Streetlet, a growth engine for small business owners and artisans, Made with Pride will feature more than 15 LGBTQIA+ local business owners, with unique products, services–and stories!
& Many More!
