Today, a new iteration of the bill that seeks to ban transgender individuals from serving in the military has come to the forefront. In light of these events, the Los Angeles City Council, as guided by the L.A. transgender advisory council, is seeking to pass a motion that would protect transgender and gender-nonconforming citizens on a local level.

A recent Op-Ed published on Wehoville.com calls West Hollywood to task for supporting its Mayor Pro Tempore, John Duran.

In the article, a recently-settled sexual harassment case involving Duran is shown as exposing outdated ideas about gay masculinity on Duran’s part.

“Both in the press and before a jury in a related case, Duran rationalized his conduct; gay men are different he said, you can’t hold us to the same workplace standards as heterosexuals,” wrote Steve Martin, the author of the Wehoville Op-Ed.

Jake Hofheimer, up until last year a second baseman for the New Roads School baseball team in Santa Monica, will be honored on April 15 at JQ International’s annual awards brunch. 19-year-old Hofheimer, as the first trans man in the country to compete in varsity high school baseball, is in line to receive the Trailblazer award.

L.A. cabaret/spoken-word haven the Lhasa Club was a progressive, eclectic club/cafe/art gallery and cinema space showcasing alternative entertainment and an unparalleled roster of thinkers, speakers, writers and performers during the 1980s and '90s in Hollywood.

Luckily, Lhasa manager Jean-Pierre Boccara put it in, and he recently shared his rare footage with YouTube and the world.

Mitzi Shore, the brazen, outspoken owner of the Comedy Store, Sunset Boulevard’s iconic comedy club, was the unquestioned mother of stand-up comedy in Los Angeles, but most comics who were lucky enough to be famously “passed” by her called her their godmother or fairy godmother. When Mitzi, the mother of comedian Pauly Shore, died Wednesday at age 87, the L.A. comedy world mourned her on social media.

The Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival turns 20 next year. That's two decades of putting personal hygiene to one side for a weekend, of diabolical porta-potties, of trying to find the best off-site parties, of forgetting about sleep, of a surprisingly (for a music festival) wonderful selection of eats, of magnificent art to admire and, of course, of countless stunning musical artists and groups to try to negotiate.
