I'd like to commend you for the insightful article "A Guide to Where L.A.'s Gays Came of Age" (July 8). It offers a snapshot of the significant contributions the diverse and vibrant lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community has made to Los Angeles and the civil rights movement. While I was glad to see that the article mentioned the location where the first gay and lesbian community center was founded, I want to reassure Angelenos that it still continues to serve the community 30 years later.

California bicyclists who raise money for charity learned Thursday they had better tighten their helmets and shinguards: The annual 575-mile San Francisco-to-Los Angeles AIDS bike ride is getting bumpier than ever. And the route seems headed directly to court. A dispute over proceeds from this year's marathon ride has led to the formation of a competing AIDS ride group and a controversial plan to have rival charity riders racing down the California coast next year.

Declaring that hate crimes often are not reported by police and victims in California, members of a new state commission said Wednesday that they will focus on ways to ensure that crimes motivated by bigotry are no longer overlooked by officials and communities. "Consciousness needs to be raised throughout the state," said Joseph McNamara, a former San Jose police chief who co-chairs the attorney general's Civil Rights Commission on Hate Crimes.

A sharp upswing in reports of crime targeting gay men and Jews helped push Los Angeles County to an overall increase in reported hate crime last year, the county Human Relations Commission said Wednesday. County officials acknowledged, however, that the increase was at least partially attributable to improved reporting of the crimes, making it impossible to know whether the number of incidents actually increased.
