wehocitylogoThe City of West Hollywood will host its sixth annual clothing drive for the Los Angeles LGBT Center’s Youth Center on Highland in January. The New Year is a perfect time to clean out your closet and lend a helping hand. Clothing and accessories that are in good condition and personal hygiene items are needed. All items collected will be distributed to lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) youth in need.

laglcThe Los Angeles LGBT Center has announced a special one-night-only return of the internationally acclaimed singing string quartet Well-Strung. The four performers specialize in pairing universally recognized classical pieces while singing pop music hits by the likes of Taylor Swift, Rihanna, Kelly Clarkson, and others. Well-Strung will perform at the Renberg Theatre for one show only on Sunday, January 21, 2018, at 7 p.m.

thepridela nonretinaHenry Giardina | When West Hollywood lost one of its own, a 26-year-old man named Gemmel Moore, due to a drug overdose this August, citizens called for action. Moore worked as an escort, and his body was found by police at the home of Democratic donor Ed Buck. Ever since Moore’s death, there’s been a call to action when it comes to keeping powerful political players accountable.

To make their voices heard and make sure Moore’s cause hasn’t been forgotten, a group of WeHoans took to the streets this weekend to protest outside of Ed Buck’s apartment.

LA Times LogoCarolina A. Miranda | acario “Tosh” Carrillo is not a name you often hear associated with Chicano art. An actor, props designer and photographer, he appeared in New York avant-garde theater during the mid-1960s and starred in several Andy Warhol experimental movies, including “Camp,” “Vinyl” and “Horse.” In the latter, a homoerotic play on old westerns that brought a live stallion into Warhol’s East 47th Street studio, Carrillo appeared as a character named “Mex.”

laweeklyJennifer Swann | Megan Gailey has a joke about why women should flush tampons down public toilets during a Trump presidency. Ever Mainard has a bit about the futility of shaving her pubes in the bathtub after a breakup. Emily Heller, who like Mainard loathes going to the gym, says her only fitness goal is to look like the red M&M character. Rachel Scanlon has a bit about all the dirty things she’s accidentally said to her gynecologist during a Pap smear. And Dana Eagle, a self-described “gay bipolar Jew with a lazy eye,” says her cancer treatment was so safe that all the nurses walked out of the room during it.

labladeTroy Masters | Brian Pendleton, perhaps more than any other person in LGBTQ Los Angeles during 2017, defined the year. He tapped into an extraordinary zeitgeist of fear and frustration and did what he is famous for; he transformed that energy into a positive force for good and helped launch what became an empowerment movement with #ResistMarch.

labladeKaren Ocamb | It was a breathtaking moment. LGBT sweetheart Kristin Chenoweth, the funny and gracious star of Sunday’s TrevorLIVE gala, took the stage at the Beverly Hilton to accept the Icon Award, presented by legend Carol Burnett after an hysterical sendup by Kathy Najimy, when her spunky personality took a turn toward the unexpected.
