Please join friends, family and supporters of Pete Jimenez as we come together to pay tribute to our fabulous and true queer hero.

In the spirit of ACT UP L.A. and Queer Nation L.A., we are gathering in the Great Hall where ACT UP LA meetings were held for several years and the park where Queer Nation LA also met, both groups conspiring against the AIDS-phobic and homophobic institutions that challenge our very existence.

Pete’s life and his contribution to the fight have always incited, energized and emboldened us to continue the battle. Pete is an inspiration to all of us, including many who have never met him but have heard his story.

We ask that you please do not bring incense or candles. Ok to send flowers.

Please invite anyone who may have been left off the invitation list and anyone who you feel would have been a supporter of Pete, even if they never met. This is a public event.

Parking lots are located on both the Santa Monica Blvd. side of the park (south side) and on the Fountain Ave. side of the park (north side).

  • Santa Monica Blvd. parking lot: Parking time restrictions lifted for the day, ignore time limit signs.
  • Fountain Ave. parking lot: No daytime time limit.
