The Los Angeles Zoo, in partnership with LA Pride, will host a family-friendly LGBTQIA+ edition of L.A. Zoo Lights: Animals Aglow on Wednesday, Jan. 4 from 6 to 10 p.m. The zoo welcomes all LGBTQIA+ friends, families and allies to celebrate the new year at the zoo’s reimagined, wildlife-centric LED lights display showcasing over 30 of the zoo’s most beloved animals including giraffes, elephants, orangutans, lemurs, koalas and condors, along with other charismatic inhabitants.
“We are so excited for this partnership with Christopher Street West and LA Pride,” said Denise Verret, CEO & zoo director. “The L.A. Zoo is committed to creating a place for all the beautifully diverse communities of Los Angeles to feel welcomed and experience belonging while connecting with nature and biodiversity. I am thrilled to have members of our LGBTQIA+ community and their allies enjoy this special holiday tradition and establish lasting experiences and memories for years to come.”
The 60- to 90-minute stroll through L.A. Zoo Lights takes guests through desert, garden and jungle landscapes filled with larger-than-life glowing sculptures, magical lights and immersive exhibits in a dazzling display of light and color. Several animated and interactive displays and photo opportunities include a guest-activated kaleidoscope of lights; glowing ring swings; a wisteria tunnel that leads to a light fountain; a cherry blossom-lined path; and a giant alligator, peacock and bird wings for a unique photo opportunity; and so much more.
