PRIDE Explorer


PRIDE Explorer®is the 1st and only self-guided Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer (LGBTQ+) History Tour of Los Angeles & New York City!


PRIDE Explorer® is a FREE Bilingual (English & Spanish) App available for download from the App Store and Google Play. This entertaining and educational location-based exploration has been created for both tourists and locals in mind. Gay or straight, young or old, there’s no other tour like this in the City of Angels or Big Apple! If you don’t have a portable device you can link tour our Virtual Tour by clicking here. Now you can experience it from anywhere in the world, even in the comfort of your own home (or closet)!

Tour #1 is “LGBTinsel Town” – a distinctive LGBTQ+ view of the origins, growth and current existence of the little citrus grove called Hollywoodland, that helped to change the world. From the historic & haunted Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel to the hustler-laden intersection of Hollywood & Vine, and all points in between, PRIDE Explorer’s interactive self-guided walking tour will blow the dust off over a century of closeted stars, underground pansy bars, and gay rights battle scars.

PRIDE Explorer’s 2nd and newest tour is the “Stonewall 50th Anniversary” Tour. Starting at the historic Stonewall Inn, people gain insight to the historic milestone that ignited a global movement. Other highlights include the launching point of the First New York City Gay Liberation March, Women’s House of Detention, AIDS Memorial, and James Baldwin’s House.

THE LAVENDER EFFECT® is a proud member of the Stonewall 50 Consortium and honored to participate in World Pride NYC 2019.
