Universal Studios Hollywood has teamed up with Los Angeles Pride to host an after-hours “Pride” celebration featuring drag shows for both adults and children.
The event will take place on June 8 during Pride month, featuring photo ops with beloved children’s characters and drag shows at Universal studios.
Inside the Magic reports:
“Guests can enjoy dance parties with live DJs, meet and greets with 14 Universal characters, exclusive photo-ops, and a Drag Show featuring LGBTQIA+ artists, including Morgan McMichaels, A’keria Chanel Davenport, Jessica Wild, Angeria Paris VanMichaels, and Kerri Colby!”
Nearly all rides and attractions at Universal Studios will stay open during the event.
“General Admission Guests can enter Universal Studios Hollywood at 4 p.m. and enjoy all the Universal Park offers during daytime hours,” the report added.
“Exclusive event offerings begin at 9 p.m. when the Theme Park closes and last until 1 a.m. (If you arrive early, check out all the shopping and dining available at Universal CityWalk!).”
The report also added that they will have “premium viewing areas at the main stage and exclusive access to the LA Pride VIP lounge.”
According to the report:
“‘Pride is Universal 2023’ is a fundraiser for Christopher Street West, a nonprofit that produces the LA Pride Parade & Festival and other LA Pride events. A portion of each ticket purchased goes toward community Pride programs all year.”
Alcohol will also be available at the event.
The news comes just days after Bud Light announced it would be sponsoring several Pride events across the U.S.
According to a report from The Daily Wire, “in St. Louis, Missouri, where Anheuser-Busch is headquartered, the company is listed as the presenting sponsor of the St. Louis Pride Parade. A sponsorship packet explains that there are only four’ presenting sponsor’ slots available. The ‘Rainbow’ sponsorship tier, located below the ‘presenting sponsor’ tier, requires entities to pay $25,000.”
“In Columbus, Bud Light is listed as a ‘Diamond Sponsor’ for the city’s upcoming pride parade,” the report adds. “According to a document from Stonewall Columbus — which ‘organizes and hosts’ the ‘annual’ event — companies are required to donate $20,000 to the organization in order to become ‘Diamond’ sponsors.”
