L.A. Pride Hands Sunday's March Over to All Black Lives Matter Group

By KNX 1070 NEWSRADIO

After much back and forth, Los Angeles Pride, which is organized by Christopher Street West/LA Pride Board of Directors announced they are handing over their proposed June 14 to All Black Lives Matter, an advisory board of Black LGBTQI+ activists and community leaders. 

After initially canceling the event due to COVID-19, on June 3, CSW/LA Pride announced “to peacefully assemble a protest in solidarity with the Black community […]," but Black activists and allies quickly labeled the move insensitive and tone-deaf, and an insult to the Black community, and LGBTQI+ people of color in particular. 

The protest will be on Sunday, June 14, at 11 a.m. and the California Department of Public Health suggests that all participants wear a face covering.
