Pride Night


Celebrate our LGBTQ+ community at the Aquarium!

Celebrate our LGBTQ+ community at the Aquarium!


In partnership with The LGBTQ Center Long Beach, join the Aquarium of the Pacific in celebrating our LGBTQ+ community during Pride Month.

Enjoy a fun evening with your favorite animals and colorful fishes. This all-ages event will also include rainbow-themed activities and drag queen storytelling. Drag queen storytelling is a family-friendly activity where a drag queen reads a children’s book story with the aim of inspiring and celebrating inclusivity.

Pride Night is a celebration of local communities. During Pride Night, the Aquarium will be honoring an individual or organization for outstanding community service and promoting diversity, awareness, and acceptance. The Aquarium extends a warm welcome to all and envisions this event as an opportunity for people to come together, appreciate one another, and collaborate in protecting our ocean planet.


  • Enjoy a children’s book story read aloud by Pickle the Drag Queen
  • Snap a photo with an Aquarium mascot dressed in rainbow flair
  • Swing by for a rainbow-filled Meet and Greet with The Pacific Pals
  • Dance to music of our DJs spinning at Honda Blue Cavern and outside in Shark Lagoon
  • Take in traditional Mexican music from Mariachi Arcoiris, the world’s first LGBTQ+ mariachi
  • Check out our Seaweed Exploration activity to learn why seaweed comes in a rainbow of colors
  • Learn about The Center and other local organizations that do important work for the LGBTQ+ community

Grab a snack at the Blue Whale Coffee Cart. Cash bars (for 21+ ages only) will be available throughout the Aquarium.

All exhibits and galleries will be open except for Lorikeet Forest. Exhibit lighting will begin to dim at 8:30 p.m. to ensure the animals get a good night’s sleep.
