Thor Stephens, whose Precinct bar was an important element in the evolution of downtown Los Angeles as a gay destination, died yesterday.

Stephens’ death was announced by his husband, Brian McIntire, co-owner of Precinct.

“The cause of his death is not yet known, but if there is any solace to be taken, it is that he at least appears to have gone peacefully, sleeping in his bed,” McIntire said in a post on Facebook.
