24 May

California’s Great America celebrated the 15th anniversary of Pride Night on Friday, May 23rd, kicking off Pride Month for the Bay Area. The event brought out thousands in the Santa Jose, Santa Clara, and nearby areas for a night of LGBT fun with various entertainment acts.

Pop duo Karmin, which has struck platinum and recorded two #1 dance hits, including Brokenhearted and Hello, rocked the main stage. Igniting the blogosphere in 2011, Karmin’s Amy Heidemann and Nick Noonan posted a cover of Chris Brown’s “Look At Me Now” on YouTube that went viral. The duo has also performed on national television for Ellen DeGeneres and Saturday Night Live.

E! network star Ross Mathews, star of the hit show Hello Ross served as Master of Ceremonies. Mathews, the former Tonight Show with Jay Leno intern, is also the best-selling author of Man Up: Tales of My Delusional Self-Confidence.

“We are proud to have hosted Pride Night for 15 years, an event that has become a tradition in the Bay Area, and is reflective of its diversity,” said California’s Great America Vice President and General Manager Raul Rehnborg.

This year’s lineup also included British pop star Neon Hitch, drag queen pop group DWV (Detox, Willam, Vicky Vox), DJ Luis Perez, and Bay Area drag queen Pollo Del Mar.
