San Diego AIDS Memorial to become a reality

After almost three decades, many discussions, meetings, two mayors giving their support (Golding and Filner), proposals, controversies and two task forces I can say that San Diego will finally join other major cities across the United States and will have an AIDS Memorial to remember the over 8,000 men, women and children who have died […]

Did you know that … Major General Matthew Beevers marched in our parade with the military contingent? That the Walmart contingent had over 400 employees and families marching?

Demonstrations … Yes! Shut down Pride … No!

San Diego Pride Board disappoints … again

Yes, once again the San Diego Pride Board did not listen to our community. A vast, vast majority of LGBT activists and leaders overwhelmingly supported and stood by Stephen Whitburn, who was dismissed as San Diego Pride’s executive director. Now they have replaced Whitburn with an unknown from back east. The San Diego community was […]
