What to know about the WeHo Pride parade

Pride Month has just begun and this Sunday, the inaugural WeHo Pride parade takes place in West Hollywood. This kicks off a month of Pride celebrations taking place across the country.

KTLA is proud to be the broadcast partner of WeHo Pride. “Queer Eye” star Karamo joins KTLA’s Pedro Rivera and Cher Calvin as they host the block party bash. They will be at the end of the route on Santa Monica Boulevard.

The parade is free and for all ages. It will start at noon at Crescent Heights and will move westward along Santa Monica Boulevard to the city’s Rainbow District. Janelle Monáe is the Grand Marshal and JoJo Siwa is the Next Gen Icon.
