WEHO Times - Here’s a sneak peek at the Studio One Forever documentary through the lens of Scott Forbes.

Studio One Forever is about West Hollywood’s historical Studio One Disco and its sister music venue The Backlot, from 1974-1993. The doc covers the rise of the disco craze and the gay civil rights movement, to the tragic days of the AIDS crisis that rocked the community.

WEHO Times - The City of West Hollywood launched a website section earlier this month with tips and resources for mental health and wellbeing. The new page addresses issues like how to handle stress while being stuck at home, domestic violence, and it provides links to healthcare providers. There’s also a section about sex during the COVID-19 Emergency.

Is having sex during the coronavirus emergency even a question? 

Dear Lambda Family and Friends,
We are reaching out today because Lambda Literary needs your help to survive.
The COVID-19 pandemic has had a devastating impact on so many people, families, and organizations—including ours.
For the first time in our history, we cancelled the annual Lambda Literary Awards ceremony. We’ve also suspended our work that brings LGBTQ authors into schools, and we’ve postponed numerous public gatherings. The crisis has forced us to pause much of the work we do on behalf of LGBTQ writers and has disrupted many sources of our income.

Dr. Frank Gabrin, 60, became the first emergency room doctor to die from coronavirus on Tuesday.

Gabrin, a two-time cancer survivor who worked at East Orange General Hospital in Essex County, New Jersey, reportedly died in the arms of his husband, Arnold Vargas, at their New York City home.

The City of West Hollywood understands that the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak is changing life for everyone. Community members may feel anxious, stressed, worried, sad, bored, depressed, lonely, or frustrated in these circumstances. These signs of stress are normal. It is important for everyone to take care of mental health and well being, especially during LA County Safer At Home orders.

 “If you feel lonely or scared, remember: at the moment we may be distanced, but we are not disconnected,” said City of West Hollywood Mayor John D’Amico. “You’re not alone. West Hollywood is a community and we are all here for one another. Please reach out and connect with friends and loved ones or check into the City’s online recreation options or join a group online. And if you need additional support, seek professional assistance through one of our social service providers or the LA County Department of Mental Health.”
