About the Films

LGBTQ Historic Places in L.A. is a film project that aims to bring together a diversity of stories, perspectives, and experiences that reveal the layered historic and cultural importance of LGBTQ places throughout L.A. County. The films are the Conservancy’s latest addition to our Curating the City: LGBTQ Historic Places in L.A. microsite, launched in 2015.

Released in partnership with KCET, each of the three short films showcase a different location—The Black Cat in Silver Lake, The Woman’s Building in Chinatown, and Plummer Park, Great Hall/Long Hall in West Hollywood—and features on-site interviews with community members, as well as archival footage and ephemera. Each film tells part of a broad story about LGBTQ places, as well as their enduring value and increasing relevance today.

The films were made possible through funding provided by the National Trust for Historic Preservation, and produced by local media studio, FORM follows FUNCTION.

The Conservancy plans to expand the film series in the future.
