Welcome to Los Angeles; on Tuesdays we have elections and on weekends we march. This year, LA Pride will be holding a Resist March instead of their iconic annual parade, and if you are not planning to #Resist on Sunday, you might want to avoid the Hollywood area—there will be street closures aplenty.

According to the Los Angeles Department of Transportation, the Resist March will start at Hollywood Boulevard and La Brea Avenue, turn south onto La Brea Avenue, then head west on Sunset Boulevard before turning south onto Fairfax Avenue. From there, walkers will make a westbound turn onto Santa Monica Boulevard heading into West Hollywood to reach the final destination of the LA Pride festival.

LADOT advises those not participating to avoid a pretty wide swath of town, from Franklin down to Santa Monica Boulevard on the north and south, and Crescent Heights Avenue all the way east to Cahuenga.

The following streets will be closed between the hours of 6 a.m. and 12 noon on Sunday:

La Brea Avenue, between Hollywood and Sunset Boulevards
Sunset Boulevard, between La Brea and Fairfax Avenues

Other associated closures:

LADOT will also be enforcing a strict no-parking policy along the route.

San Vicente Blvd, between Melrose Ave and Santa Monica Blvd will be closed from Thursday, June 8, 2017 at 7 p.m. through Monday, June 12, 2017 at 8 a.m.

Starting around 8 p.m. on Friday, Santa Monica Blvd. will be closed for a short time between La Cienega and San Vicente to allow for the Dyke March.
