#20gayteen: The Year of Hayley Kiyoko. Every time I think of Hayley Kiyoko now, I remember the time I was in a parking lot at strip mall, trying to look up the lyrics to one of her songs to make sure I was singing it correctly (as you do) and in this confusion, I accidentally backed out in front of one car that was going faster than I’d clocked it in my mind, and in my overcorrection of this mistake, I inadvertently blocked the other lane so that an oncoming car had to slam on their brakes to keep from hitting me and THEN they had to navigate around me, because we were all stuck like that until that second car could make it past. I will never forget the look on that old man’s face. Just staring me down like that from his little car, so disgusted. Anyway happy 20gayteen! (I had the lyrics right, for the record.)

Saw This, Thought of You
Gold was mission-driven as a critic, hoping his food adventures through the city’s many immigrant enclaves would help break down barriers among Angelenos wary of venturing outside their comfort zones. In the process, he made L.A.’s enormousness and diversity feel accessible and became one of the city’s most insightful cultural commentators.
“I am trying to democratize food and trying to get people to live in the entire city of Los Angeles,” he said in a 2015 interview with Vice. “I’m trying to get people to be less afraid of their neighbors.”
