BREAKING VIDEO: LA City Council Members Remove ‘No U-Turn’ Signs in Gay Neighborhood, Citing Homophobia

City leaders along with local LGBTQ+ organizations and community members gathered near Griffith Park Boulevard and Hyperion Avenue to take down the last several “No U-Turn” and “No Cruising” signs.

“I was also surprised that these U-turn signs were still up, and at first, they seem a little … ‘Oh, ok, it’s just a no U-turn sign,’ but when you learn the history of it, and you realize that these were used to profile gay people, it’s so important that we have these removed,” said Silver Lake Neighborhood Councilmember Maebe A. Girl.

The Silver Lake Neighborhood Council voted to dismantle the signs in 2011.

According to a local story some of the signs were allegedly installed in the ’90s when neighbors complained about a gay bar in the area because their life-condition were unbearable!


The “No Cruising” and “No U-turn” signs allowed law enforcement to arrest any driver who did a U-turn on Griffith Park Boulevard between midnight and 6 a.m. or who drove down the street more than once within a six-hour period.
