SunGay Brunch DTLA Walking Tour

THE LAVENDER EFFECT and Out & About Tours has partnered with Airbnb to offer a custom 3.5 hour Social Impact ExperienceJoin us for a moveable feast through the LGBTQ history of Downtown LA!

What we’ll do:

We’ll meet at Redline, Downtown LA’s premier gay bar & restaurant, for a mimosa and a tasty appetizer catered by CIA trained chef Justin Schwartz. You’ll get to place an order for your brunch entrée so that it’s hot and table-ready upon our return. From there we’ll hit the streets and wind our way through the richest and most vibrant Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer (LGBTQ) history and culture the City of Angels has to offer. From the gay-friendly Native Americans who first settled here to LA’s first gay porn theatre that opened in the 1880’s to the grand hotels and bathhouses that stated the secret desires of the Hollywood elite. Soon, we will have magically traveled back to Redline for a delicious brunch and mimosas. You’ll see why DTLA is so proud of its LGBTQ diversity!

Where we’ll be:

  • Activism landmarks that pre-date Stonewall
  • Hidden architecture, memorials, and cruising hot spots
  • LA’s first porn theatre that opened in the 1880’s
  • Grand LGBTQ-friendly hotels, parks and a bathhouse that still operates today
  • New gay owned / friendly businesses, backrooms, and brunch spots

What we’ll provide:

A Walking Tour of Downtown LA’s LGBTQ+ History, Appetizers, Bottomless Mimosas, and Brunch!
