The Pride in the Plaza event kicked off at noon Sunday at Mission Plaza in San Luis Obispo.
The event is put on by the Gay and Lesbian Alliance.
It is free to attend and the entire community was invited.
"Essentially we want to celebrate our lives here on the Central Coast. We want to educate people about areas of concern and where we've come and where we still have left to go," said Robert Kinports, from GALA of the Central Coast.
Glee actor, Alex Newell, also appeared at the event for a special performance, despite the death of his co-star, Cory Monteith, on Saturday.
Newell plays Wade "Unique" Adams on the show.
