Do You Know Your Local LGBTQIA Trivia?

Ask For Ask: An LGBTQIA Los Angeles History Quiz

Happy Pride! If you’re here you probably already know who RuPaul is, you’re familiar with the political work of Harvey Milk, you’ve even got a Keith Haring art print on your wall…but do you know your local LGBTQIA trivia? Don’t let San Francisco get all the credit! L.A. was and continues to be the site of many historic moments in LGBTQIA history.
Think you know a lot? As the saying goes, “The library is now open”.

After you take the quiz you can sign up for our Discover LGBTQIA Los Angeles Challenge running throughout the month of June.



Whether you got them all right or you stumbled a little, queer up your summer with some great LGBTQIA book recommendations and other resources. Below are some of my personal favorite reads from the past year.
