LA Weekly - Covering L.A. nightlife for as long as I have, you start to notice cultural shifts, some for the better and some not so much. Bottle service, for example, was bad as it started to divide people based on money and status, taking away the ability to chill and soak up the scene for those without it. But there has been so much good, and when it comes to gay nightlife, Nacho Nava (aka Ignacio Nava Jr.) is a figure who automatically comes to mind, not only for his creative ideas but for his sweet and open nature, which ultimately served to unite not only the LBGTQI community but people of color in L.A. as well. Nava died of pneumonia on Saturday, Jan. 19, after battling the illness for several days.
