About Cuties Los Angeles:

Cuties is a Black & queer-owned community space providing resources and events, both virtually and in-person, to the LGBTQIA+ community. Based in Los Angeles, CA, Cuties began as a coffee shop and safe space focused on providing queer community and a place to gather that wasn’t centered around alcohol.

After losing the physical space in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Cuties founder and former owner, Virginia Bauman, transferred ownership to now CEO Sasha Jones, and the organization has continued under her guidance. Cuties’ goal continues to be to provide resources, joy, and healing to queer, trans, and gender non-conforming folks, with special focus and offerings exclusively for our QTBIPOC family.
