11AM - 1PM: STUART TIMMONS LGBTQ HISTORY TOUR
Written by acclaimed author/historian Stuart Timmons (The Trouble With Harry Hay, GAY L.A.) and directed as a performance art piece by Jason Jenn, this tour dazzled audiences in 2015 and 2016. It returns for one more special invigorating event to celebrate Stuart’s legacy and how his life’s work and research is available for all to enjoy. The tour involves a brief shuttle ride followed by a refreshingly accessible urban hike encountering over a dozen costumed characters for surprising fun and history along the way. Go West (Hollywood) and join us for the adventure! Shuttles depart every 15 minutes from 11am to 1pm. from the West Hollywood City Council Chambers, 625. N. San Vicente. (Tours last between 90-120 minutes). http://stuarttimmons.com/tour/
