30 WOMEN TO WATCH: Annie Parkhurst • Long Beach Post

On Saturday, September 22, more than 300 people gathered at The Grand here in Long Beach as the Long Beach Post, in a partnership with Choura Events, presented its inaugural 30 Women to Watch event, a night designed to honor the many female citizens of this city who are altering the landscape with their own definitions of what it means to be a woman.

In addition to featuring the winners in a special pull-out section in the most recent print edition of thePost, we will be running profiles and photos of each woman, one per day, for the next 30 days.


Annie Parkhurst continues to work closely with multiple organizations such as the Haven House and Planned Parenthood, all in the spirit of helping women in need. Her time spent as a homeless gay teenager has made her not only an activist within the LGBTQ community—where her iconic “Long Beach is for Lovers” protest sign was printed in the Huffington Post following the Westboro Baptist Church protest at Wilson High—but the community at large throughout Long Beach.
