LA Pride has announced its 2019 headliners will be pop star Meghan Trainor and British electronic-pop trio Years & Years, fronted by out singer Olly Alexander.

R&B singer Ashanti, singer Amara La Negra, British singer MNEK, rapper Dej Loaf, singer Greyson Chance, Brazilian drag performer Pabllo Vittar and pop singer Ah-Mer-Ah-Su, who is transgender, will also perform.

LA Pride’s 2019 theme is #JUSTUNITE which it says is “not only a nod to the Pride movement’s storied history of pioneers and activists who paved the way for the rights LGBTQ+ people have today, but it also is a reminder that the fight for equality is still far from over.”

“LA Pride stands humbly on the shoulders of those that have come before us who worked tirelessly for nearly 50 years to create a movement. Our new generation of leadership looks to honor that past and build on the many hard-fought LGBTQ+ civil rights victories. Our multi-generational community is, indeed, stronger together, and this year’s LA Pride celebration draws upon our diverse experiences to ensure that our collective voice is more powerful than ever,” President of the CSW Board of Directors Estevan Montemayor said in a press release.

Attendees can celebrate with LA Pride on Saturday, June 8 and Sunday, June 9 from noon – 7 p.m.  This year the LA Pride Festival will expand to include Pride on the Boulevard, a free block party along Santa Monica Boulevard between San Vicente and Robertson Boulevards. The event is free and open to the public and will include performances from local acts.
