Christopher Street West, the nonprofit organization that produces the LA Pride! Parade and Festival in West Hollywood each year, has announced a nationwide search for its first-ever Executive Director.

“As we look toward the future and set our sights on making LA Pride a must-experience Pride destination for the global LGBTQ+ community and our allies, there is no better time than now to recruit a forward-thinking leader who will be at the very heart and soul of making this vision a reality,” said Estevan Montemayor, CSW Board Member and Search Committee Chair. “This announcement marks a significant milestone for CSW, one that’s been years in the making. We have worked hard over the last few years to build enthusiasm and momentum around the LA Pride brand. We’re now ready and in a better position than ever to take this important step forward, ensuring our organization’s long-term future and growth.”

With an annual budget in excess of $2 million, this announcement signals a significant change from the volunteer-run organization, as they hope to bring in someone who can work both with the City and other LGBT groups on a year-round basis. Hopefully, a successful candidate can help to stabilize the organization’s finances and help to better engage the organization’s multiple, and often conflicting, audiences.
