“Enter the East Gate, Los Angeles.

We all grew up loving these bright, colorful neon lights. Who can’t recall the films from the 50’s and 60’s that expand our minds with images of festive nightlife advertising, speaking of mythical ice-cream stands and late night Tiki bars. As your San Diego Gay Travel Examiner discovered one of the prime examples of classic 1950’s Neon Signs is the Eastern Gate of Los Angeles.

The Night Was A Glow With Shining Lights

In the 1950’s and 60’s Americans were taking to the highways in every increasing numbers, advertisers needed a new method in which to reach these masses. The solution to their problems came in the form in glowing rods that lit up the night, illuminating bowling alleys and late night diners.

One of the features that made these signs so popular was that you could twist the glass tubes they are made of into any shape imaginable. As technology moves forward, neon lights are replaced with more advanced fiber-optic models.

Never fear my friends for end of the glowing signs is nowhere in sight as historians are moving to the save them. Museums dedicated to preserving the culture of Americans glowing signs are being established, for what would America be without these giant signs to illuminate the night?

The the East Gate, Los Angeles

Opened in 1938, created by a Hollywood set designer for the displayed Chinese Americans by the building of Union Station, Los Angeles. Lighting up the night sky, this Pagoda has become a classic Californian landmark. The East Gate as it is known, serves as the entrance to a mini mall containing 18 storefronts.

Known in guild books as Old Chinatown Plaza, it can be found at 1100 N.Broadway. Surrounded by vintage buildings, marking this venue as a festive tourist stop.

James Franco ‘Maybe I’m Just Gay’ – Rising the ‘Is He Gay’ Celebrity Question

James Franco 'Am I Gay'

James Franco 'Am I Gay'

Ok, this is not exactly jaw dropping news – James Franco, a celebrity who has already come out of the ‘straight’ closet to fans, stirred up several sexual fantasies among his gay fans today when he suggest to a reporter he might just be — you guested it ‘Gay.’

Having had the pleasure of meeting Mister Franco several times now at various events ranging from media round tables, on the red carpet, to charity events I can say with some honesty he is truly a gentlemen with an impish side.

But don’t take my word alone, read his.

“There are lots of other reasons to be interested in gay characters than wanting myself to go out and have sex with guys. And there are also lots of other aspects about these characters that I’m interested in, in addition to their sexuality. So, in some ways it’s coincidental, in other ways it’s not.

I mean, I’ve played a gay man who’s living in the ’60s and ’70s, a gay man who we depicted in the ‘50s, and one being in the ‘20s. And those were all periods when to be gay, at least being gay in public, was much more difficult.

Part of what I’m interested in is how these people who were living anti-normative lifestyles contended with opposition. Or, you know what, maybe I’m just gay.”
