Forest Lawn Pride Commemoration

Play Tribute Movie

Pride is all about Celebration, Advocacy, and Education. But maybe there's more to that...

We Dignity Memorial believe that between all the parties and all the parades, that we should pause to reflect and remember those who didn't live to see today. We owe everything that Pride stands for to those who died either fighting for us or simply for themselves. Let us pause in remembrance to ensure that though their voices rest in silence, that they may never be silenced.

Over 600 thousand lives lost in the United States, some for sure are members of our own within the LGBTQ+ community--and thus this moment is a tribute to them.
