ONE CITY ONE PRIDE FESTIVAL
Hollywood Fringe has partnered with City of West Hollywood’s Once City One Pride Festival to offer participant shows with LGBTQ themes complimentary HFF17 registration. We are excited to announce the winners of this scholarship.
One City One Pride will explore the locations of West Hollywood through the festival theme “Go West!” Whether associated with Horace Greeley’s famous quote from the 1800’s (“Go West, young man, and grow up with the country”), the Village People’s anthem of hope and unity, or the Pet Shop Boys later cover of the song, Go West conjures images of a movement toward a promised land. For many LGBTQ people, this included the idea of a West Coast utopia, a dream of gay liberation, and the freedom to live lives openly in the West Coast meccas of San Francisco, Los Angeles, and the emerging, influential young City of West Hollywood. Most recently, there has been a wave of artists and creatives moving here from New York. Over the years, people have moved West for many reasons, and for 2017 One City One Pride takes a look at what pride means to those who accepted the call to “Go West!” The festival will comprise performing arts, visual arts, arts interventions, and public art.

The Hollywood Fringe Festival is proud to support the LGBTQ community and congratulates this year’s winners!
