Gay Los Angeles on Foot

Published Date Author: , July 14th, 2014

Los AngelesForget the urban legend (and hit ’80s anthem) which suggests that only a nobody walks in Los Angeles. It’s time to trade those expensive designer loafers for your most sensible walking shoes, and hit the streets.

Touring gay L.A. on foot is the best way to get an insider’s look at the city, and allows you to see more than you might on a double-decker bus that creeps, crawls and honks through gridlock. Plus, you can gain a gay-perspective that goes beyond the rainbow power of legendary Santa Monica Boulevard in West Hollywood. Explore off-the-beaten-gay-path queer locales with guided tours of Hollywood and Downtown L.A. and venture out solo to explore the Wilshire district.

Hollywood Walking Tour

Be aware that there’s much more to Hollywood than the Walk of Fame and the famous courtyard at the Chinese Theatre. Start at the old Max Factor building in the epicenter of Hollywood (it’s located on Highland just south of Hollywood Blvd.), which now houses the Hollywood Museum. It features the most extensive collection of memorabilia from Old Hollywood anywhere — and, incidentally, this structural gem was named for the man who created unique make-up blends for our most gay-adored stars, such as Joan Crawford and Jean Harlow.
