Street closures are in place from 4 a.m. until 4 p.m.

The first ever permitted Pride Parade in the world was first held in LA in 1970.
For the past two years, the parade and other Pride events have been canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic, including during what would have been the 50th anniversary parade in 2020.
This year's theme for the parade is #LoveYourPride, and it will bring over 130 floats, marchers, and performers.
The LA Pride organization suggests that participants arrive early, use public transportation to get to the parade, and come ready to have a good time.
This year's official parade grand marshals include Sir Lady Java as Community Grand Marshal, Mark Indelicato as Celebrity Grand Marshal, and Paula Abdul as Icon Grand Marshal.
