Stuart Timmons is the acclaimed historian and author of “The Trouble With Harry Hay,” co-author of “Gay L.A.,” and former board member & executive director of the ONE National Gay and Lesbian Archives. In 2007, Stuart was developing three walking tours of LGBTQ historic sites in Los Angeles. He finished tours of DTLA and Silver Lake, but experienced a severe stroke before he could complete his West Hollywood tour. Now, thanks to a grant from One City One Pride and a team of helpers, Stuart’s vision is coming to a rousing fruition in time for the 30th Anniversary of “The Creative City” and the "WeHo@30" LGBTQ Arts Festival.
*Shuttles will leave from West Hollywood Library approximately every 15 minutes carrying small groups – last shuttle will be shortly after 1pm. Free parking available in the ramp just south of the West Hollywood Library.
