Nobody walks in LA? Sooooooo not true! Join Out & About Tours for their first of three walking tours in the City of Angels. Downtown LA houses the most rich and vibrant LGBT history our city has to offer. From the gay friendly Native Americans who first settled the land centuries before Columbus arrived to LA's first gay porn theatre that opened in the 1800's to the grand hotels and bath houses that sated the secret desires of the Hollywood elite - this tour is unlike any other in Los Angeles. Enjoy a brisk two-and-a-half hour walk in sunny LA. Snacks and water included.
I did the tour already and found it fascinating, there is a huge amount of history in downtown. 2 hrs and I was not bored for a single minute. Did you know what building in downtown was built so that zeppelins could dock, a la Hindenberg? Or the first gay riot was not Stonewall in NY but in LA in the 50’s. (Matthew DuBois)
