Los Angeles has one of the largest gay and lesbian populations in the United States.  For the gay visitor to L.A., look no further than West Hollywood and Silverlake for an incredible nightlife, and an array of venues and bars that suit everyone.  The locals refer to these hotspot areas as East of Fairfax and West of Fairfax.
