Good news & Good vibes!

I think we could all use some good news and good vibes in our life. One of the things San Diego Pride is known for is showcasing incredible local, world-famous, and emerging LGBTQ artists at our annual Pride Festival. Whether it’s someone you’re just discovering or a living legend, you can always count on Pride to have a beautifully diverse lineup.

In just the last few years we’ve been honored to bring you Kesha, Ruby Rose, Big Freedia, King Princess, Snow Tha Product, Melissa Ethridge, and more. Even this year, pre-COVID, we worked with Billboard Pride to come to San Diego for our CAPI Conference to help educate Pride organizations across the country on how to build relationships with artists and agents so these amazing LGBTQ artists can perform everywhere!

As it’s still not safe to hold major public events, we’re getting ready to bring some of these brilliant artists right into your living room with our new live series, Vibe with Pride. Join us as we spotlight LGBTQ artists and promote visibility, equality, and empowerment. Hear directly from artists who are changing the music industry, increasing LGBTQ representation, and releasing new music during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Our first guest is singer, songwriter, dancer, actress, and activist Mila Jam who performed with us in 2019. Tune in as she’s joined by our Vibe with Pride host Jai Rodriguez, from the original Queer Eye and HBO’s new series ‘Equal,’ as they discuss Mila’s journey as a black transgender artist, her tireless activism work, and get to know Mila on a personal level.

We can’t yet share these amazing artists with you in person, but we can bring some good vibes into your homes and on to your mobile devices. In the meantime, please keep finding ways to support local LGBTQ artists and musicians of all kinds. Buy art and music from local talent. Tip the DJs, drag queens, and performers who are streaming to you live. Our LGBTQ artists bring us so much joy. It’s inspiring to see and hear from artists that look like us and come from our community. Their visible existence and art is advocacy, and when we amplify and share their message, Together We Rise.

With Pride,
