TITLE

Recommendation to increase appropriations in the General Fund Group in the City Manager Department by $2,500, offset by the Eighth Council District One-time District Priority Funds, transferred from the Citywide Activities Department to provide a donation to Long Beach Lesbian & Gay Pride (LBLGP) Inc. to support the 2022 Long Beach Pride Parade and Festival; and

 

Decrease appropriation in the General Fund Group in the Citywide Activities Department by $2,500, to offset a transfer to the City Manager Department.

 

DISCUSSION

The City of Long Beach is home to California’s third largest Pride festival and parade. Since 1984, the Long Beach Pride festival and parade has brought people together to celebrate our

local LGBTQ+ community and worked to educate participants on the importance of diversity in a healthy society. As the battle for acceptance continues worldwide, it is important that we actively advocate for more inclusion and respect for humanity in our communities. To express my support for our LGBTQ+ residents, I am requesting the Council’s approval of this fund transfer.
