Giving back, taking pride and helping our Gayborhood!
Every year with the help of our community, Long Beach Proud! Fest will choose a project to help improve the neighborhood. The project can be anything from tree planting, minor park repairs, neighborhood clean-ups, activations and more.
We believe that by helping our neighborhoods and activating our neighborhoods creates a more vibrant, diverse and safe community; a community that takes pride on their streets, their shops and overall community.
You can help by purchasing our LB Proud! Supporter Wristband.
This year, thanks to Vice Mayor Cindy Allen and the City of Long Beach, we will be planting new trees along the Broadway corridor.

Support our LGBTQ+ Business + Raise Money that helps our Gayborhood!
When you support our Queer-Owned small businesses, you are helping local entrepreneurs achieve their dreams, fostering innovation and competition, and keeping money circulating within our community. There are many ways you can support our local queer businesses, shopping at our local stores, dining at our restaurants, or drinking at our local gay bars. By making a conscious effort to support queer-owned businesses, you are helping create a more vibrant and prosperous community for everyone.
