marcmalkinWASHINGTON, DC – NLGJA – The Association of LGBTQ Journalists is excited to announce that longtime E! News reporter Marc Malkin is the recipient of the 2017 Lisa Ben Award for Achievement in Features Coverage. Malkin will accept the award at NLGJA’s annual L.A. Exclusive benefit event in Los Angeles on June 20.

laweeklyLA Weekly | Michael Ciriaco - Stop me if you've heard this one already. What do you get when you cross a gay man with an Armenian? Apparently, you get Movses Shakarian.

A lawyer by day, Shakarian spends his nights hitting the mics at comedy venues across Los Angeles. This month, the openly gay comic is working double duty, both producing and performing in a pair of shows, Armenian Allstars and That’s So Wrong, which aim to give a voice to the often invisible queer Armenian community.

laweeklyLA Weekly : Michael Cooper - One year ago, the Roosterfish, a small, divey gar bar on Abbot Kinney in Venice, closed its doors after 37 years. The Westside gay community was devastated, since the closure meant that there were no remaining gay bars west of the 405. Various bars or restaurants around Venice and Santa Monica tried to capitalize on the now-untapped LGBT market over the next 12 months with various gay-themed nights, but the community lacked a space it could call its own — until now.

Just last month, a new Westside gay bar opened called the Birdcage, located on the top floor of the Victorian on Main Street in Santa Monica.

labladeLos Angeles Blade | Troy Masters - Venice Pride announced this afternoon that the Los Angeles Rams, the new-but-native NFL team in town, will help light up Venice with rainbow colors alongside Google, BCG Digital Ventures, and others in June as part of the month-long Venice Pride Sign display.

The team has joined Venice Pride as a bronze-level sponsor and has adopted 14 blue lights in the letter “C” of the famous VENICE sign, heralding the start of the 2nd annual pride celebration on the beach.
