The Love Chapter

As a progressive Christian, I believe there are many names for God and many ways to a loving God; this article reflects one of those ways. Take from here what works for you. Celebrate life with joy and peace! The state motto for California is Eureka, coming from the famous California gold rush that lasted […]

A San Diego ‘transgenderism’ conference

Aug. 19 I went to a Rock Church, Point Loma conference entitled Transgenderism: A Faith Based Perspective. Denise Shick of Help 4 Families, whose father was both transgender and a child abuser, gave the presentation on how she believes fundamentalist Christian churches should respond to transgender people. As the name of Shick’s small organization implies, […]

At last — new houses!

Who wouldn’t love a spanking brand new house? Demand is there, but supply has been a challenge. We’ve been reporting consistently in this column about the lack of inventory in San Diego and elsewhere. And at last, we can see some brand new product coming on the market. This is good news to weary home […]

Transforming everyday moments into teachable moments

What is our obligation during teachable moments? When we witness misconceptions or a complete lack of understanding about the LGBTQ community, sexuality or gender, are we – as members of that community – obligated to speak up and educate?

Changing lives

The veterinarian called to say he would be 10-15 minutes late and I thanked him for the professional courtesy. I was especially grateful for the additional time with Brady, my four-legged companion. The last few hours together were passing too quickly and the extra few minutes were a gift. I hung up the phone and […]

I love that new hotel smell

The InterContinental Hotel occupies the top 30 floors of the Wilshire Grand in downtown Los Angeles; the tallest skyscraper west of Chicago. Everything about the hotel is marvelous, modern and new. Including La Boucherie on 71. La Boucherie on 71 is a sophisticated steakhouse with a French twist, offering premium steaks and seafood, a cheese […]

Preparation mode

The excitement mounts as September starts with the arrival of my partner of 44 years for a two month visit. Later I will go to Japan for an equal time. In the interim we are together through daily phone calls. Since I retired our living arrangement is a long story, but it works for us. […]


Kudos! ‘Monuments to oppression’ Mr. Corbin, I am a 75 year old white male. I would be remiss if I did not commend you on your excellent piece in the August 17 LGBT Weekly (issue 232). Very well said. Kudos! PAUL HETRICK
