PRIDE Explorer


The PRIDE Explorer™ App. is the 1st and only self-guided Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer (LGBTQ) and Allied History Tour of Los Angeles that is both educational and entertaining.

PRIDE Explorer’s first offering 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 and 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.

The PRIDE Explorer™ is available for download from the App Store and Google Play for $2.99. Net proceeds support THE LAVENDER EFFECT’s mission and programs. PRIDE Explorer™ has been created for both tourists and locals in mind. Gay or straight, young or old, there’s no other tour like this in Hollywood! You can experience it from anywhere in the world, even in the comfort of your own home (or closet)! The App is designed to expand to include more great cities in the near future.
