People are really stupid LA was a disgusting shithole now it’s just a desolate, disgusting shithole now I feel grief, our community has lost some many, especially POC.

Like any obstacle to love, COVID-19 has intensified my love for Los Angeles. ❤️ I’ll never forget the day the movie theaters reopened: that day of the week, that movie, those most devoted moviegoers.
