While West Hollywood flourishes as a tight-knit community and neighborhood, its official status goes beyond that as a city in its own right. Famous for passing legislation such as same-gender domestic partner benefits for city employees, and bans on fur sales and declawing of cats, West Hollywood represents not only much of LA’s entertainment history but also a beacon of social justice.

The legendary Sunset Strip has been undergoing a revival of sorts as the home of go-to music venues, and many of LA’s top destination restaurants lie within West Hollywood’s borders, but there are other spots that fly under the radar. Whether you're a longtime resident, or are visiting this bustling city beneath the hills for the first time, there's always something new to discover in WeHo. Take advantage of its rich, creative history and vibrant culture by going off the beaten path.

Discover Los Angeles

Los Angeles has a long and rich history in the LGBTQ+ community, from one of the country's earliest Pride demonstrations at the Black Cat bar in Silver Lake in 1967, to the world’s first permitted parade advocating for gay rights that was organized in 1970 by Christopher Street West (CSW), an active voice for the LGBTQ+ community across Greater Los Angeles. CSW produces the LA Pride Parade and Festival every June in West Hollywood.

This year, LA Pride expands beyond its traditional weekend of events, featuring official LA Pride community and partnered celebrations across the city. Featured events are taking place at Dodger Stadium, Universal Studios Hollywood, the annual LA Pride Festival in West Hollywood, and culminates with the #ResistMarch.
