2017-02-01

Stuart Timmons—known for chronicling the history of gay Los Angeles in the book Gay L. A.: A History of Sexual Outlaws, Power Politics, and Lipstick Lesbians, co-authored with Lillian Faderman—died Jan. 14 at age 60.

Timmons suffered a debilitating stroke almost a decade ago but had been active in the West Hollywood and Silver Lake gay communities over the past four years. Timmons had started walking tours of West Hollywood, Downtown Los Angeles and Silver Lake in 2007 but was sidelined after his stroke in 2008.

Because of his knowledge and love of LGBT history, Timmons also served as a former board member and executive director of the ONE National Gay and Lesbian Archives with his longtime friend, author Mark Thompson. By July 2010, Timmons seemed well enough to participate in celebrating Harry Hay's 100th birthday.

A blog by the Stuart Timmons Trust contains his own story of his early life; see www.blogger.com/profile/15587364722073765810. More about Timmons is at thepridela.com/2017/01/gay-author-historian-stuart-timmons-dead-60/ .
