The colors of the rainbow shone out along Hollywood Boulevard and Highland Avenue in spite of the June gloom, with parade-goers claiming prime real estate as early as 8 a.m., three hours ahead of the parade’s expected kickoff.

With queer lives and culture under threat, Our Queerest Century highlights the contributions of LGBTQ+ people since the 1924 founding of the nation’s first gay rights organization.

Businesses were decked out in banners representing several LGBTQ+ groups, including rainbow, transgender and pansexual flags. The dinosaur atop Ripley’s Believe It or Not! was wrapped in a colorful scarf, oversize heart-shaped glasses and a sign displaying “Power in Pride,” as anthems from queer icons like Donna Summer and Madonna blasted.

Here’s a visual report from Times photographers Wally Skalij, Michael Blackshire, Dania Maxwell and Robert Gauthier of the Pride festivities this weekend.
