The Los Angeles Prides with German participation
What’s the LA Pride and what’s Texaspatti doing there?
The LA Pride (also known as the Los Angeles Pride Festival, sometimes referred to as the “Gay Parade”) is one of the largest LGBTQ+ events in the world. It takes place every year in West Hollywood in the heart of Los Angeles. In the US sunny state of California, the organizers of the Christopher Street West Association are responsible for the “proud” event.
Texaspatti stands next to Heidi Klum and doesn’t notice it
A non-profit LGBT human rights organization has been hosting the Los Angeles Pride Festival in Greater L.A., California, for nearly 40 years. Christopher Street West (CSW), a non-profit organization, organized the world’s first permitted gay rights parade on June 28, 1970, in response to and in memory of the Stonewall rebellion on Christopher Street in New York City the year before. Since then, they have built a rich history as an active voice for the LGBTQ+ community in the Greater Los Angeles area. They also organize a series of events throughout the year with non-profit, philanthropic, community and entrepreneurial partners such as Tesla, Uber, Google, SpaceX, UPS and many others.
So was the Los Angeles Pride Festival 2019:
Their mission is to create safe and integrative spaces for self-expression. To awaken an authentic sense of activism in the continued struggle for equality and celebrate the unique heritage and diverse cultures of the LGBTQ+ community in Los Angeles and its allies.
This year Texas Patti, Germany’s well-known porn export, was there for the second time. At some point she suddenly stood next to “model mama” Heidi Klum, but was so taken with the parade that she didn’t even notice. Toyboy Tom Kaulitz, on the other hand, was not observed.
The Los Angeles Pride Festival and the Spirit of Activism
Although it is true that the community has come a long way since the Stonewall rebellion of 1969, there is still much to do. The organizers believe that it is absolutely crucial for everyone in the LGBTQ+ community to recognize, celebrate and learn from their history of social revolution. The constant awareness of the past contributes to shaping the future, making it better and accepting it for future generations.
The Los Angeles Pride Festival was founded in the spirit of activism – and today follows in the footsteps of its founders. We believe in inspiring today’s generation to unite as a community and to stand up for acceptance and equality. Our goal is to support the LGBTQ+ community and its allies with vital information, education, resources, events, content and communication so that everyone in our community can not only find their unique voice, but also use it to make positive changes for all.
This incredible diversity has enabled the growth of niche communities – around shared lifestyles, cultures, identities, beliefs and values – that enable everyone to have a safe space within the LGBTQ+ spectrum to be “at home”. They believe that the greatest strength is the vibrant diversity of our community. And if all acted as one community, there would be real change. That is the true meaning of pride. And it is something they celebrate with heart and mind 365 days a year.
It’s easy to forget what impact someone can have on each other’s lives
Acting as a single community means being mindful and accepting the diversity that exists in our community. For this reason the followers of the LGBTQ+ believe that they must always be friendly to themselves and their friends. And to those who consider them different, because in this way they will strengthen the community and enable it to overcome the political, social and cultural headwind that it will inevitably face if it continues to fight for its rights.
Being part of the LGBTQ+ community means having the freedom to be one’s true self at all times
Therefore, they believe that it is their responsibility to create safe spaces for self-expression, to understand that recognizing, accepting and accepting differences is what makes them stronger as individuals and as a community. Bringing their true self into everything they do is how we all play an important role. To stand up for what they believe in as a community. And what they want to inspire in the hearts and minds of the people around them.
