2015 Nicky Award winners


The 40th Annual Nicky Awards were a great success and a sold-out event at the Marriott Hotel. There will be some major new changes next year and hats off to producers Allan Spyere and Michael Zarbo. And the winners were … Outstanding Business: Green Fresh Florals; Community Organization: Human Dignity Foundation; Businesswoman: Joyce Rowland; Businessman: […]

The LGBT community must unite against SeaWorld’s oppression


As a member of the LGBT community, I found it disturbing that Nicole Murray-Ramirez would try to persuade us – a group that knows all too well the pain and frustration of being denied rights – to support SeaWorld, a corporation that deprives orcas and other animals of their fundamental rights as well as everything […]

The 2016 Senate contests are worth watching


The 24/7 coverage of Trump-a-palooza and Clinton-mail makes it hard to remember there are other presidential candidates, much less other races. The 2016 Senate contests are worth keeping an eye on, though, as control of the upper chamber is once again up for grabs. Republicans regained control of the Senate in 2014, when Democrats elected […]

Doxxed by Cathy Brennan?


Cathy Brennan, a well-known activist who considers herself a gender critical feminist (GCF), and someone many trans feminists and trans activists consider a transgender exclusionary radical feminist (TERF), is suing Joey Stevenson of AfterEllen.com for monetary damages “of at least $70,000 and an injunction to prevent the continuation of the defamation,” according to a report […]

Support SeaWorld


I am glad that SeaWorld is finally really fighting back against PETA’s extreme and false claims by recently launching some educational public service and educational media outreach. The facts are that for over five decades no organization in San Diego County has done more to rescue and protect all ocean wildlife than SeaWorld. Yes, there […]

New approaches and medications for individuals in recovery


For many individuals recovering from addiction, the path of living a balanced life is a process, not an event. Each person seeking to live life free of addictive use of substances must find his or her own way to sobriety with the help of friends, significant others, family, mentors and many times with a treatment […]



Judging political debates often has a Mean Girls feel to it. Like, you may think you like someone, but you could be wrong. You wouldn’t make a final decision without asking some friends, in this case the rest of the punditry, because the media coverage and spin have as much to do with the long […]

When it’s time to shut up and listen


At 5:30 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 18, I found myself at a protest in Los Angeles over the number of trans people, mostly trans women of color, who’ve been murdered this year so far. The latest was Tamera Dominguez in Phoenix, Ariz. who was run over multiple times in a church parking lot by an SUV. […]

Commentary: Gay married men


With the June 26 U.S. Supreme Court decision in favor of same-sex marriage, the number of gay married men will increase and decrease. I was a gay married man in the sense that I was gay and married to a straight woman. The same applied to lesbians who were married to men. They were lesbian married women. […]

GOP debate and the Kasich Moment

John Kasich

During the Fox News telecast of the first GOP Presidential candidates’ debate, I gasped as Ohio Governor John Kasich, a former U.S. Congressman and close political ally of then-Speaker Newt Gingrich, admitted he had attended a same-sex marriage. Kasich, alone among his fellow candidates, actually admitted he didn’t hate LGBT people or the new tradition […]
