During the Fourth of July weekend, the 34th annual LA BLACK PRIDE (LABP) returns to Los Angeles to celebrate all things Black and queer.

Today, LABP announced that Raven-Symoné, a Daytime Emmy Award-nominated actress, singer, and songwriter, will receive this year’s Jewel Thais-Williams Trailblazer Award for her undeniable contributions and impact on music, TV/film, and culture at ONE “Mega Party” on July 1st at Catch One from 9 PM – 3 AM.

Greg Mathis, Jr. and Elliott Cooper from the hit series “Mathis Family Matters” will host the CLSQ Kickoff Celebration on Thursday, June 29th from 10 p.m. to 2 a.m. at Chapel at the Abbey.

LABP, produced by BBE Group, looks back on the previous year and the people and pioneers who paved the way. We are celebrating ourselves on a daily basis in 2023. We are honoring those who, in large and small ways, are shaping the future of our community. #MyBlackIsGold is more than a mission this year; it’s a mantra. It’s a declaration that we are deserving of equity, mental health, and the pure joy of simply being and loving ourselves.

This year’s #MyBlackIsGold events and experiences will celebrate the beauty, intelligence, and achievements of black queer and trans people. They are as follows:
