Visit Los Angeles and Enjoy Diversity

If you’re an international guest planning a trip to America, keep your plans. Yes, social media and news networks are painting our entire country as chaos in the streets.  Like anywhere else in the world, you’ll find a handful of really bad eggs whose goal is to cause disruption and spread hatred.  As most returning visitors from the states will tell you, America is a very friendly country with lots of really kind folks. Los Angeles is a perfect example.  We are a true melting pot of diverse communities within a few dozen square miles. Little Armenia, Chinatown, Korea Town, the heavy populated Jewish communities of Pico and Hancock Park, Little Tokyo, the Persian community of Beverly Hills, Little Ethiopia, gay-friendly and

Heritage Square Museum Halloween

Los Angeles may be the hub of the entertainment world and one of the newest cities in America, but we still have plenty of history to share!

LA Pride 2018

LA Pride 2018 is less than a week away.  In fact, many consider it pride week, or pride month, so there’s no shortage of festivities.  The big day is Sunday, June 10th.  The day can start with a fun local brunch before the LA Pride Parade hits Santa Monica Boulevard in West Hollywood at 11AM.  The parade usually travels from Crescent Heights to Doheny, so there’s plenty of viewing areas.  If you plan on setting up chairs, arrive early enough to stake your claim. This year’s theme is #JUSTBE.  Everyone is welcome so one doesn’t have to be in the LGBTQ community.  By everyone, just no pets, unless they’re service animals. The actual festival takes place on Saturday, June 9th from
