Will Our Non-Profit Boards Ever Learn?

Well the San Diego Pride Board did exactly what I predicted less than a year ago, it split ways with Executive Director Eric Heinritz. Fernando Lopez has been named the new Executive Director. Congratulations Fern. But… Besides bringing in someone from the outside who had no experience managing a pride event the size of San […]

A Stunning Defeat

I attended what was thought to be an election victory cocktail party for Hillary Clinton. The jovial mood over several hours turned into that of a wake and finally a funeral. Clinton’s stunning defeat is hard to accept but we have been here before. A two-term Democratic president yields a subsequent presidential election where there […]

The Republican Party Balls Have Dropped

Donald Trump actually uttered LGBTQ, quite awkwardly, during his acceptance speech for the nomination of his party. Coupled with billionaire Peter Thiel declaring he was a gay, proud Republican and an American; the Republicans have come into the […]

Many in the community are outraged, but we have been here before, and unfortunately I actively participated. In October of 1998, I, along with majority on the Board of Directors of HRC, decided to endorse […]

The perpetrator, Yishai Schlissel, is an ultra-Orthodox Jewish man who also stabbed victims at the same event in 2005. Schlissel was just released for that crime last month after serving ten years in prison. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu promptly […]

Caitlyn Jenner Accepts ESPY Courage Award

Following an inspiring video about her journey, Caitlyn Jenner made history last night by being honored with the Arthur Ashe Courage Award. In her first public appearance since her transition was on the cover of Vanity Fair, Jenner gave a message of hope and acceptance with an emphasis on young people who may be experiencing […]

Eat North Park

San Diego Pride is finally upon us. We all know that Hillcrest will be a zoo for the entire weekend, so why not take your friends off the beaten path and experience one of the other hot spot San Diego neighborhoods; North Park. Here are some great North Park spots:

San Diegans: This is so embarrassing…

These are beyond basic questions? Can you imagine if I asked about why we got marriage equality last week?
