Each year, the City of West Hollywood celebrates Pride month through the artistic contributions of our community with the One City One Pride LGBTQ Arts Festival. For 2015, One City One Pride will run from Harvey Milk Day (May 22) through the end of June.

WeHo at 30 - Life at 30 logo large size

2015's festival theme: 'WeHo@30', Life@30'

In celebration of West Hollywood's 30th anniversary of Cityhood, One City One Pride takes a look at what it means to turn 30 with the theme 'WeHo@30, Life@30'.

When West Hollywood was founded 30 years ago, it was the first city in the nation with a predominantly LGBTQ City Council. As the LGBTQ community has become less marginalized, what does this mean for both the community and the City? For many individuals, the big '30' looms large as a modern rite of passage into full adulthood, something not everyone is ready for judging by the scores of online profiles seemingly stuck at 'forever 29'. The AIDS movement is now in its 30s, and a major component of One City One Pride will be a look back at the impact AIDS has had on art with 'WeHo@30: Art AIDS WeHo', which continues through September with extended exhibits and performances.

A milestone year means a lot of things to different people, but it’s a great time to pause and reflect on where we've been and where we are headed, as individuals, as a City, and as a community.

There are two full days of programming you will want to save the date for!  

Saturday, June 6, a day of film and visual art. - Celebrate the opening of several 'WeHo@30: Art AIDS WeHo' exhibits at the West Hollywood Library, ONE Archives and MOCA PDC
