“It is with heavy hearts that we say farewell to West Hollywood resident Ron Thomas who passed away sometime on the morning of May 3, 2018.”

Thomas’s death was announced by his family and close friends on May 3. The cause of his death has yet to be reported.

Thomas’s death comes just a few short months after the death of his husband, Phil Hoskins, in November 2017 because of health issues.

For the first time ever, more than 2,300 cyclists will cross the AIDS/LifeCycle finish line in downtown Los Angeles in front of City Hall on Saturday, June 9, marking the completion of their seven-day, 545-mile journey. The throng of cyclists, supported by 650 volunteer “roadies,” will begin their weeklong journey in San Francisco on June 3 to raise awareness about HIV and AIDS and to support San Francisco AIDS Foundation and the HIV/AIDS-related services of the Los Angeles LGBT Center.

When my son came out to me when he was 14, I totally accepted him. After all, throughout my life, most of my friends had been gay or lesbian.

I worried, however, about the kind of world that he would live in; I knew there were so many challenges LGBT people faced that the rest of us did not face, and that scared me.

Chris Classen, the controversial president of the board of Christopher Street West, has been replaced by board member Estevan Montemayor.

CSW, which produces the annual LA Pride festival and parade, scheduled for June 9 and 10 this year, made the announcement today. It comes on the heels of a recent story in WEHOville that revealed that CSW had granted an exclusive contract to secure sponsorships to Classen’s business partner, Craig Bowers, a former CSW board member.
