The City of West Hollywood’s bike share program, WeHo Pedals, is celebrating Pride. A limited number of WeHo Pedals bicycles have been converted into #PrideBike bicycles throughout the month of June. They have been decorated with rainbow hearts and carry the message #PrideBike to mark LGBTQ Pride festivities.

Community members are encouraged to keep an eye out for #PrideBike WeHo Pedals bicycles. Hop on and post a selfie with any #PrideBike using any major social media platform with the hashtag and automatically be entered for a chance to win an annual WeHo Pedals membership — #PrideBike is part scavenger hunt, part contest, part rainbow pride, and all fun.

The City of West Hollywood and Christopher Street West (CSW) will host the 2017 LA Pride Festival in at West Hollywood Park from Friday, June 9, 2017 through Sunday, June 11, 2017. On Sunday, June 11, 2017, the #ResistMarch will take the place of the annual LA Pride Parade.

Each year, the City of West Hollywood celebrates the artistic contributions of the LGBTQ community with its vibrant One City One Pride LGBTQ Arts Festival. The festival runs for 40 days, from Harvey Milk Day, Monday, May 22, 2017 through Friday, June 30, 2017, which marks the end of Pride month. For more information, please visit www.weho.org/pride.
