LA Pride was cancelled almost two months ago due to the coronavirus pandemic, but organisers announced last week that they intended to replace it with a Black Lives Matter march. However, the event was slammed by the LGBT+ community after an LA Pride organiser wrote a letter to police seeking permission and approval for the march. In the letter, organisers requested a special event permit in order to hold its Black Lives Matter march, and said they looked forward to organising the event “collaboratively” with the LAPD. Over the weekend, the organisation apologised for involving the police, writing on Instagram: “We realized that we did not first collaborate with enough key leaders and activists in the Black community that have been fighting on the frontlines. “For that we offer our sincerest apologies.
