Todd Gloria for State Assembly

It is well known that Todd Gloria is mulling over a run for the 78th District State Assembly seat (Toni Atkins is termed out next year) and I join many San Diego citizens who want him to be our voice in our state capitol. There are exactly 120 members of the California legislature, and only [...]

And they’re off!

On Monday, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz announced his bid for president in 2016, skipping the fundraising exploratory phase in which many of his potential competitors are lingering. Dozens of people you’ll never hear of file paperwork to run for president each cycle, so Cruz wasn’t the first candidate, but he’s the first one you’re likely [...]

Planet Fitness as the new Florence High School

Carly Sklodowska -

On a morning this week I awoke to yet another story regarding the Planet Fitness “”no judgment” policy. The new story is about a lawsuit. Yvette Cormier of Midland County, Michigan is the woman who complained first to her local Planet Fitness’ management that a transgender woman she considered to be a man was using [...]

Visibly trans in San Diego

“Every gay person must come out,” Harvey Milk said in his What America Is speech in June 1978. “As difficult as it is, you must tell your immediate family. You must tell your relatives. You must tell your friends if indeed they are your friends. You must tell the people you work with. You must [...]

Boycott Dolce & Gabbana

These two Italian designers have in the past gone out of their way to champion “traditional families” and “family values” which is their right, but this time they have crossed the line and we have the right to react as Elton John and his husband have. Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana attacked “synthetic babies, chemical [...]

Did EQCA jump the gun?

It’s fine to be “Ready for Hillary.” “Already Closed to Others” is a different matter, which is why I’m mystified by Equality California’s (EQCA) endorsement of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton for president in 2016. Media outlets announced the endorsement Monday, March 16, an odd date for two reasons. First, the organization’s Web site [...]

Jacque Atkinson: So what to do?

Jacque Atkinson  Lorie Zapf

Despite their national gains in the 2014 election, the Republican Party continues to struggle in California. All statewide elected offices are held by Democrats, and the GOP barely prevents supermajorities in the State Assembly and Senate. San Diego, the largest American city led by a Republican, is a bright spot by comparison. Still, 2016 presents [...]

Trans civil rights are the current central struggle for human rights

“‘Homosexuality’ remains an identity that is subject to a ‘we/they’ distinction. People who would not say ‘I am like this, but black people are like that,’ or ‘we are like this, but women are like that.’ or ‘we are like this, but Jews are like that,’ find it simple to say, ‘homosexuals are like that, [...]

Nathan and Mindy Fletcher and family deserve privacy

Nathan Fletcher is no longer a state assemblyman or a candidate for public office, and Mindy Fletcher no longer works for the Bush administration. Both are now in private lives raising their two wonderful little boys. But as usual some local press outlets have tried again to take some cheap shots at Mindy and Nathan. [...]
