I am a graduate student at USC researching and writing about queer (gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender) history in Los Angeles. I'm particularly interested in the geography of queer life during the 1930s-early 1970s - where the bars and/or cafes where, where people lived, where cruising happened, where police harassment was focused, etc. I am also interested in connections between gay politics & other progressive issues - racial justice, labor, etc. - during this era.

I am definitely interested in Echo Park, but also LA as a whole.

Any resources, or anyone who remembers the era, would be very much appreciated!
I can be reached at hobson@usc.edu

Hello. We could not find any items in our archives related to gay or queer  history. But we welcome  your research and hope you will provide a copy of your work to our archives. Please keep us posted.

Hello. You might want to check with the Tom of Finland Foundation. They are actually based in Echo Park on Laveta Terrace.
