3616703665 a151299712 m EventsGay marriage is the hot topic du jour in California — and now a new event hopes to marry the LGBT community with environmentalism. The L.A. Pride Festival, happening this weekend in West Hollywood, will feature a brand new Green With Pride “interactive eco-space” with information for sustainable living, and of course, eco-friendly products for sale.

Put together by New Avenue Marketing and Enfluence Group, Green With Pride has signed on nonprofits like the U.S. Green Building Council and Global Green to help educate festival attendees about living green and proud — as well as many eco-minded companies selling everything from solar power systems to eco-skincare regimens. Singer/actress Deborah Cox has been brought in as the National Green With Pride Ambassador. She’ll perform on Sat., June 13 from 5 p.m. - 6 p.m.

If you’re going to the festival, check out the Carbonfund-offset Green With Pride area next to the main stage on June 13 and 14. Won’t be able to make it to the L.A. event? Wait a month to see Green with Pride at the San Diego Gay Pride Festival, July 18-19.
