LA Health Services is the nation’s second largest municipal healthcare system, and our participation is a way of promoting our commitment to providing safe and welcoming health care services to all and promoting the availability of healthcare for LGBTQ+ people in the community.
Participation is open to the first 100 people who sign up to attend. It’s a fun, family-friendly event. Carpooling is encouraged or you can take the Metro B Line (Red) – LA Metro and exit Hollywood/Highland or Hollywood/Vine Station.
