LA28 Celebrates LA Pride

The LA28 Olympic and Paralympic Games proudly joined LA’s PRIDE to celebrate individuality, expression, perseverance and belonging. 

 

Olympian, human rights advocate and LA28 Athletes Commission member Adam Rippon led more than 50 people representing the LA28 Games along an action-packed parade route through Hollywood, honoring the LGBTQ+ community’s power and resiliency together.  

 

"One of the best parts about living in LA is you can be authentically yourself and find a great community here – that’s what makes this place so incredible,” said LA28 Athletes Commission member Adam Rippon, “This is why I love LA, so many kinds of people with so much great energy celebrating together.”
