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 […]

LGBTQ youth are today’s true heroes!

The true and real heroes and role models for LGBTQ America are our youth and students as they are proudly coming out in their middle schools and high schools, and taking their rightful places and demanding the same respect that is due to all students. Today’s LGBTQ youth and students are organizing LGBTQ clubs in […]

San Diego Police are not ‘pigs’

The anti-police and chanting of “pigs” demonstrations at our LGBT Center against trans San Diego Police Officer Christine Garcia sadly did not stop there. We are in the age of social media and there has continued to be anti-police and Officer Garcia posting for all to see. Postings like “Abolish the police” and “F_ _ […]

Let’s support Police Officer Christine Garcia

Once again transgender Police Officer Christine Garcia has been subjected to hate, disrespect, insults and attacks by some militant radical members of our very own LGBT community. As many of you remember, Officer Garcia was barred from attending the annual Transgender Day of Remembrance because she was wearing her police uniform. Now for the recent […]

TV’s ’48 Hours’ to revisit Versace/Cunanan story

SDHDF audit? Gala?

Last year saw major controversy surrounding the San Diego Human Dignity Foundation (SDHDF), which resulted in the forced resignation of its controversial executive director. Soon, other board members resigned and three funds removed themselves and their finances from the SDHDF. I received calls from former and current board members who accused the former executive director […]

‘From this day forth, we are all transgender’

This past weekend found me in San Francisco giving two speeches, one at the Design Center and the other at the Holiday Inn Civic Center. Of course I addressed the issues of the day; especially the president’s recent assault on transgender civil rights which I stated was an assault on all American civil rights. Part […]

People, politics and opinions

Recent polls show Mayor Kevin Faulconer behind Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsome in next year’s California governor’s race. That Faulconer, a Republican, is polling a strong second while expressing no interest in the race continues to have people urge him to run. While I believe our mayor would make an outstanding governor, I do believe it […]

Imperial Court 45, a matter of respect

This coming Saturday Feb. 4, San Diego’s oldest LGBT organization will be celebrating its 45th anniversary of community service: The Imperial Court de San Diego. In 1972, LGBT San Diegans started to meet and discuss the starting of a local chapter of the International Imperial Court System, which was founded in 1965 in San Francisco […]

Mayor Faulconer reveals priorities for 2017

Having advised and served the last seven mayors of San Diego, and two interim mayors, I have indeed heard many “State of the City” addresses by both Republican and Democratic office holders. The address last week by Mayor Kevin Faulconer was one of the most sincere and down to earth speeches by not a partisan […]
