DTLA Proud Block Party Lineup and Volunteer Opportunities

The Block Party will also feature Los Angeles superstar DJS Pogo Pope, Whitney Fierce, Mateo Segade and Josh Peace spinning throughout the festival. The night will culminate in our first ever “Rainbow Rat Queen” amateur drag pageant where drag queens of all experience levels will compete to snatch the crown and win themselves a performance slot on the main stage at this year’s DTLA Proud Festival in August 2017. The DTLA Proud Block Party is an extension of DTLA Proud, and will offer something for everyone. Along with the main stage entertainment there will be community booths, live art installations, interactive carnival games and a “get read” booth hosted by local drag comediennes Allusia and Meatball (Dragula TV).

The free Block Party will be held on January 28th from 4pm – 11pm and will be located on 4th Street between Broadway and Hill.
