thepridela nonretinaHENRY GIARDINA | Late last year, the Los Angeles LGBT Center announced plans to build a new low-income campus for seniors, funded in part by the Anita May Rosenstein Foundation. This year, thanks to a new grant of $25,000 from the Elizabeth Taylor AIDS Foundation, transgender patients will now be able to enjoy a host of new, free services at the Trans*Lounge, the Center’s dedicated space for transgender wellness, protection, and services.

Since 1991, ETAF has been committed to providing affordable services to individuals living with HIV/AIDS.

LA Times LogoMELISSA ETEHAD | Kenneth P. Hahn, a former Los Angeles County assessor and one of the county's first openly gay elected officials, has died at his home in Cathedral City. He was 78.

Hahn was recovering from a serious stroke last month when his condition began to deteriorate, said Robert Kalonian, spokesman and assistant to the county's current assessor, Jeffrey Prang.

The larger parcel, for Aiden Dvash-Banks, contained a new U.S. passport and a letter congratulating the boy on his American citizenship. A smaller, flimsier envelope came for Ethan Dvash-Banks. Inside, a letter stated that his citizenship application had been denied.

gaylifelaRoss Levinsohn, the CEO and publisher of the Los Angeles Times, has been accused of homophobic behavior and sexual harassment of women in a story on National Public Radio’s “All Things Considered.”

“This story is based on a review of court documents, financial filings and fresh interviews with 26 former colleagues and associates,” says journalist David Folkenflik. “Taken in concert, they suggest a pattern of questionable behavior and questionable decisions on the job. The portrait that repeatedly emerges is one of a frat-boy executive, catapulting ever higher, even as he creates corporate climates that alienated some of the people who worked for and with him.”

A group of Russian cadets at a Russian aviation institute are in trouble for posting a NSFW video of them dancing around in their underwear on campus.

On Monday, YouTube user Aleks Jigurdinski uploaded the video showing the men dancing in nothing but boxer briefs to the 2002 club hit “Satisfaction” by Benny Benassi.

They also suggestively eat bananas in the clip, twerk and perform maintenance work. The clip appears to be a spoof of the song’s original music video which featured women performing construction work in scantily clad outfits.

laglcLorri L. Jean stood on the steps of Los Angeles City Hall before a crowd of more than 500,000 people on Saturday and led them in a chant: “Be the storm!”

“Until we see the change we need in Washington, it is our duty, it is our obligation, to do much more than simply hunker down and weather the storm,” the Los Angeles LGBT Center CEO said during her rousing speech. “We must be the storm!”

Fueled by the #MeToo and Time’s Up movements, the second Women’s March Los Angeles was focused on turning out the vote and bringing attention to the urgency of preparing for the November midterm elections.
