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

This coming July will mark the 20th anniversary of Andrew Cunanan’s “killing spree” national rampage that ended with the killing of fashion designer and icon Gianni Versace. Cunanan committed suicide after murdering a total of five people in the cities of Minneapolis, Chicago and Miami. For weeks this story made world headlines that turned into […]

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.

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.

LGBT community sponsoring Wounded Warrior’s family Christmas dinner

For five years now, young businessman Johan Engman has closed his restaurants (Fig Tree, Breakfast Republic, etc.), on Christmas Day to provide a complimentary gourmet dinner for military veterans through the Wounded Warrior Project. This wonderful event has grown so big that Engman, who has donated the bulk of the costs, needed some help and […]

People, politics and opinions

Washington, D.C. Republican political rumors are that former President Bush’s United Nations spokesperson, Ric Grenell (a top foreign policy expert) is still being considered for a top spot in the Trump administration. Openly-gay Grenell, who was a press secretary for Mayor Susan Golding, has a lot of support among some top Republican national leaders. I […]
