2017 San Diego Pride notebook

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? That Ms. California 2017 waved throughout the parade at everyone? That the “Burning Man Festival” had a space at the festival? That our popular Sheriff Bill Gore […]

Demonstrations … Yes! Shut down Pride … No!

As a Latino and gay activist for over 45 years who has organized, led and participated in demonstrations, sit-ins, marches etc., and one who has been beaten and arrested by police in the 1960s and 70s, it is indeed upsetting to see my last column so misrepresented.

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.

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
