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 [...]

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 [...]

Nathan and Mindy Fletcher and family deserve privacy

Bye-bye Chargers

Over a decade ago in my weekly column in the then Gay and Lesbian Times, I said that one day the Chargers would move to Los Angeles. Well, all hell broke loose and Charger fans went crazy on me calling me every name in the book and saying that the Chargers would never leave America’s [...]

Mixed feelings about the Creating Change Conference

The 27th annual Creating Change Conference held in Denver last week brought forth over 4,000 GLBT people from all over the United States (with some special GLBT observers from around the globe.)

Auschwitz’s 70th anniversary … and anti-Semitism continues

This is the 70th anniversary of the liberation of the infamous death camp of Auschwitz in Poland. The Holocaust, which resulted in the torture and murder of over 6 million Jewish people during World War II. You would think that the world and all people would have learned from history and this horrific crime against [...]

Mayor Faulconer’s ‘State of the City’

The annual “State of…” speeches by presidents, governors and mayors have become an American tradition when they inform citizens what their priorities, mayoral projects and goals for the year will be.
