Precinct was opened by husbands Brian McIntire and Thor Stephens in 2015 (Thor sadly passed in 2018). The first new LGBTQ venue to open in Downton LA in two decades, it helped kick-start the region’s rejuvenation, alongside the likes of Redline, New Jalisco, The Lash and DTLA Proud. It remains downtown LA’s biggest queer venue, but months of closure have placed its survival in doubt.

“The crisis will reach the point of no return unless we can get help from the very community we serve and love.”

That’s why we’ve set up a donation fund to help #SaveOurSpaces. Head here for more info and to donate.
