Long Beach Pride

One of the largest pride events of the year is about to take place this weekend in Long Beach, California. From a circuit party on the Queen Mary ship to the dancing in tents to hip hop this is definitely one of the largest prides in America. Pride parades are lining up across the country right now. Last week was Vegas Pride that had lots of grand appearances including Hex Hector and Deborah Cox to name a few.

Long Beach has some unique things in store for this years pride you may not have noticed. A singing competition with a $2,500 grand prize called the Pride Star 2007 takes place where an unknown talent will go home with some cash.

DJ Ray Rhodes announced on a Myspace bulletin there is a Long Beach Pride party for all ages on Sunday May 20 called “Aftermath”. That sounds fun and will be held at the modern Renaissance Hotel at 111 E. Ocean Blvd.

The Longbeachpride.com site is annoying with all the graphics and flash but after you get past that you can see there will be performances from Jennifer Hudson, The Indigo Girls, and more May 19 and 20th. It is fun to walk around to all the booths setup but you have to pay an admission it is not free like most cities. General admission to get into the Pride festival is $20, but it goes to a good cause.
