Gay favourites Ricky Martin and JoJo Siwa are set to headline LA Pride in the Park 2024.

The event will return to Los Angeles State Historic Park on 8 June and this year a new trans lounge will be open to the trans+ community and its allies.

Headlining the event will be Grammy-Award-winning Martin, best known for hits “She Bangs” and “Livin’ La Vida Loca.” 

The Puerto Rican singer, who has two children with former partner painter Jwan Yosef, has been open about the couple’s decision choice to divorce after six years of marriage.

Siwa, who recently caused some consternation among queer music fans by claiming she created “gay pop” with her new single “Karma”, will also perform at the event. 

Later admitting in an interview with TMZ that she wasn’t in fact “the inventor of gay pop”, Siwa played at Miami Beach Pride in April, to the biggest crowd the event has ever seen.
