West Hollywood Gay Neighborhood
People often don’t realize that Hollywood and West Hollywood are two different cities. West Hollywood, sometimes called WeHo, is situated west of Hollywood and south of Hollywood Hills. It’s a fairly small, dense area—it’s only 1.887 square miles in area but is home to almost 35,000 people. Many of those people are gay men: almost 41 percent identify as a gay of bisexual male.
Because it’s home to so many LGBT people, West Hollywood has no true gay district. The city was the first in the U.S. to have a city council made up primarily of LGBT people, and it often ranks on lists of top U.S. LGBT-friendly cities.
Condos in West Hollywood are priced from $300,000 to $2 million. Single family homes are more expensive. The cheapest is around $524,000. The most expensive are in the $5 million range.
