West Hollywood’s Arts Division is inviting artists to submit poster design proposals for next year’s One City One Pride festival.

One City One Pride is held each year starting on Harvey Milk Day, May 22, and continues through the end of June, which is LGBTQ Pride Month. The 40-day festival celebrates the LGBTQ community through art and history. The programming features numerous events and exhibits including film screenings, spoken word events and visual arts exhibitions.

The poster design competition seeks original artworks that explore next year’s festival theme — “Love is Love” — which is chosen, according to a city announcement, “because in these times when there is so much hate and division in the world, the universal bond of love can unite us.”

The winning design will be the festival’s main booklet and poster image. The deadline for submission is Sept. 27. A prize of $600 will be awarded to the designer of the selected image.

Complete guidelines and the submission form can be found online.
More information about the City of West Hollywood’s One City One Pride, also can be found online.

More information is available from Mike Che, the city’s Arts Coordinator, at (323) 848-6377 or at mche@weho.org. For people who are deaf or hard of hearing, please call TTY (323) 848-6496.

The majority of WEHO home owners…….don’t want this parade in our neighborhood.

This is a diverse city. Those elected to government……better wake up……or we’ll start running our own candidates…..and they won’t support events like this.

thank you.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
