CONTINUE TO SHOW PRIDE

Still recovering from last weekend’s Weho Pride? It’s time to rally, because Pride in LA is just getting started. Aside from the main parade and festival on Hollywood Blvd., there are countless events going down throughout the city. Check out the Banjee Ball Downtown, Judy Garland’s birthday bash at the cemetery, family day at the Natural History Museum, and a queer Bollywood disco in Los Feliz.

HIT THE BEACH

Right on cue, the summer’s first heat wave is upon us. Instead of putting your trust in your AC window unit, round up some friends and head to the beach. While you’re there, grab some food in Malibu or the South Bay, or pack a light lunch and hit a great spot after the beach. No one wants to be driving home hungry.
