gaylifelaLos Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti has honored Jorge Usatorres for his work in creating scholarships for LGBTQIA students at Los Angeles City College.

This newest scholarship is the third created by Usatorres, former owner of Faultline, the iconic gay bar. Usatorres sold the bar last year and, in a sign of appreciation to the community and Faultline’s patrons and staff, decided to establish two LGBTQIA scholarships at LACC, which is located near the Melrose Avenue bar.

“I just want more people to know that we’re here and that we have all these resources available for them,” said Magaña. “We really are trying to raise awareness that we have this special, safe place for women. The Center gives amazing health care. But it’s been frustrating to go out into the community and hear people say, ‘I can go there if I’m a woman?’”

Until three weeks ago, parent Keith Gregory didn’t think he’d be among them.

“Our child just told us three weeks ago that she is a transgender female and we’ve been looking for some people to talk to and support groups,” Gregory explained during a lunch break.

Still, it’s not a secret she’s been keeping. Philadelphians have always known her to be an outspoken force, LGBTQ and, of course, all things Philly.

But now she’s gone national and very West Coast, known her for her joyful interviews with some of entertainment’s most vibrant and famous personalities.

LA Times LogoJen Yamato | Kevin Spacey on Sunday evening issued a public apology to "Star Trek: Discovery" actor Anthony Rapp, who claimed that the "American Beauty" Oscar winner made an unwanted sexual advance on him in 1986. Rapp was 14 years old at the time. Spacey would have been 26.

In the statement, Spacey said he chooses "now to live as a gay man."

The City of West Hollywood is getting the word out about nightlife safety and awareness as it continues its YouTube series The WeHoans, with Season 2, Episode 3.

In this episode, drag sensation Willam Belli learns about the dangers of being unaware of one’s surroundings while out at a local bar. Willam blames hunky bartender Brandon Martignago when he cannot locate his personal belongings and a hilarity-filled scene ensues. Willam finds himself on the floor by the end of the episode. The incident’s campy comedy is tempered with important nightlife safety messages.
