Family and friends of Jeremy Sanchez visited the site near the San Gabriel River where the 17-year old missing South El Monte High School student’s body was found late Wednesday. Many not only mourned his brutal stabbing death but were in shock after police arrested Sanchez’s close friend as a suspect in his murder.

“We knew he was like bisexual, you know,” close friend Nelly Mendoza told Fox11 News. “We never thought in 2018 it would be a problem.”

I’d heard his name, of course, and we’d even met for brief introductions. But when Jonathan Weedman took to the stage at a recent Gay Men’s Chorus of Los Angeles concert at Alex Theater in Glendale, I was captivated.

His words were like a big hug, fitting the emotional context provided by a just completed passionate choral performance, replete with members’ stories about the AIDS crisis, their joys and struggles, soaring solo performances and a lively display of gaydom.

“The lesbian world that I first came into, here in Los Angeles almost 40 years ago, seemed to me to exist only in darkness,” once wrote historian Lillian Faderman in an open letter to explorers of L.A.’s June Mazer archives. “Our world seemed to have been invented in that moment of time. We had no past – or, if we did, no one knew or could tell me about it. Because we had no knowledge of those who came before us, our isolation and loneliness felt tragic and inevitable.”

The City of West Hollywood’s Arts Division unveiled its newest art exhibit, Adelaide Drive: Christopher Isherwood and Don Bachardy on Saturday, April 14, 2018 at the West Hollywood Library, located at 625 N. San Vicente Boulevard. The exhibit features images of the famous couple taken over the course of several decades by photographer Wayne Shimabukuro. The installation also features five original portraits by Don Bachardy. The exhibit runs through Wednesday, October 17, 2018.

A prominent lawyer known for his impassioned advocacy for LGBT rights and environmental issues doused himself with an accelerant and burned himself to death in a New York City park on Saturday to protest ecological destruction caused by fossil fuels.

The charred body of David Buckel was discovered by police officers, who were initially dispatched to Prospect Park around 6:10 a.m. to investigate what appeared to be a brush fire, police said.

The California Assembly voted Thursday to add gay “conversion therapy” to the state’s list of deceptive business practices, following a debate that focused on the personal experiences of several lawmakers and hinted at potential lawsuits to come.

“It is harmful and it is unnecessary,” Assemblyman Evan Low (D-Campbell), the bill’s author and one of the Legislature’s most vocal LGBTQ members, said of the practice.
