Also, Summertramp, a self-described “magical Brigadoon of decadence and delight,” will turn Pershing Square into an urban oasis of giant waterslides and aboveground pools and host guest parties with Milk Milk and Akbar’s Bears in Space.

DTLA Proud will have community booths, food trucks, live art installations, interactive exhibits and a section dedicated to downtown Los Angeles queer history.
