LA Pride is here, and it is one of the largest and most anticipated Pride events in North America. This weekend there is a full line-up of exciting events and incredible talent lined up. This year, stand out at LA Pride by celebrating in style while giving back to charity with the official LA Pride fan, exclusively from HomoCulture!
This year, HomoCulture has teamed up with Christopher Street West (CSW), the 501(c)3 non-profit organization that produces the annual LA Pride Parade and Festival, again as a media partner and, this year, has created and is selling limited-edition LA Pride-themed fans.
Hand clap fans have surged in popularity, not just because they make the super loud crack sound, but because they have become the gay man’s single best accessory. Fans provide a new dimension for self-expression and help complete an outfit.
There are two unique and authentically Los Angeles inspired, official LA Pride fans available through HomoCulture Gear. In addition to being a fabulous way to stand out in the crowd, command attention, and have the ultimate souvenir, these special, official LA Pride fans also help give back to charitable organizations.
Ten percent of LA Pride fan sales will be donated to CSW to support the organization’s philanthropic programs, including Casa del Sol, a joint project with APLA Health providing low cost housing to people living with HIV/AIDS, and PLATform, a policy, leadership, and advocacy training program aimed at amplifying the voices of the transgender community. This year’s goal is to raise and donate $2,500 to these important programs that support LA’s LGBTQ+ community.
“We are thrilled to partner with HomoCulture again as a media sponsor for a second year in a row,” said Shayne Thomas, Marketing Lead for CSW Board of Directors. “This year, we wanted to take our partnership to a creative, new level by doing something that would add to the colorful fabric of the LA Pride experience. I honestly can’t wait to see people showing off their exclusive LA Pride fans as they come together during LA Pride Week 2019 to celebrate this year’s #JUSTUNITE theme.”
In addition to the two official LA Pride fans, there are 21 other exciting and original fans in the 2019 HomoCulture Gear collection, all with gorgeous colors, hilarious and catchy sayings. Choose whichever kween you want to be with coordinating fans, t-shirts, drawstring bags, and tank tops, all from HomoCulture Gear.
Attendees are encouraged to bring their exclusive LA Pride fans to all official 2019 LA Pride Week events, including the Opening Ceremony on Friday, June 7, featuring the one and only Paula Abdul, and the LA Pride Festival on June 8 – 9, where headliners Meghan Trainor and Years & Years will lead a diverse lineup of LGBTQ+ and ally artists all weekend long.
The LA Pride fans will be sold exclusively online until June 9, 2019. Order your official LA Pride fan today!
