In 2012, New Orleans native & Founder & CEO, Brandon Anthony, moved to LA and discovered that there was no avenue for Black gay men of color to fellowhip and celebrate their uniqueness as a black gay men. So, he decided to create B.A.S.H LA.
B.A.S.H LA (Brandon Anthony’s Socialite House) is a premiere Los Angeles/ Hollywood Entertainment Group. Host, performers, and special appearances have included NeNe Leakes, Karrauche Tran, Kelly Rowland, Ciara, Liberty Bell, Jeremy Scott, Brandy, Salt N Pepa, Jussie Smollett, and many others. BASH LA produces LA's Urban Gay Pride held every year during the 4th of July Weekend as well as coordinates the LA PRIDE Festival. Attracting over 1,000 patrons weekly at events such as "CLSQ" at Chapel At The Abbey & "Starboy" at RAGE Nightclub, this has made BASH LA a staple in LA's LGBT nightlife. BASH LA continues to use their platform to build community partnerships and provide platforms advocating on social issues impacting the Black LGBT community, namely the disproportionate impacts of HIV and mental health amongst Black gay men.
B.A.S.H LA produces LA PRIDE's Hip Hop stage for the 5th year in a row.
With performances from Keri Hilson, Khelani, Keke Wyatt, and many others, this made LA PRIDE 2018 the biggest LGBT festival in history.
June 2018, BASH LA'S Founder & CEO, Brandon Anthony, sits down with KTLA news to speak on the development of LA PRIDE & Summer BASH LA.
During the entire month of June 2019, we celebrate Pride Month. A month that campaigns equality, inclusiveness, and freedom of expression for LGBTQIA (+) community. This year, KTLA decided to highlight some of the influencers and advocates in the community that consistently pushes the queer agenda forward.
