What is the Geo-Political Base of West Hollywood?
The 2010 Census states that West Hollywood’s population is 34,399 people and in the past 10 years it has shown a 3% decrease. Within that 34,000 population, there is a variety of different races, ages, religious views, and sexual orientations. The racial demographic is predominantly white, making up 84.2%.
The next race with the largest presence are Latinos at 10.5%, then following them are Asians at 5.4%, and African-Americans at 3.2%.

Data taken on one’s sexual orientation showed that approximately 40% of the male population was gay.
