Los Angeles LGBT Historic Context Published!

Like San Francisco and New York City, Los Angeles’s past is rich in lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) history. However, Los Angeles is one of only a few cities nationwide to recognize this history by completing a LGBT historic context statement. A historic context statement is a technical document written in narrative form that provides guidelines on the identification and evaluation of historic resources within a geographic area. The recently published LGBT historic context statement for Los Angeles was prepared by Galvin Preservation Associates under the direction of Teresa Grimes, with contributions from Wes Joe and Carson Anderson. It is now an important chapter within SurveyLA’s Citywide Context Statement that will be released after the survey process has been completed.
