In Washington, D.C. for a week

This coming Sunday, June 11, thousands of LGBT Americans will be marching on Washington, D.C. Over 100 cities across our nation and foreign countries will be holding marches and rallies in solidarity. I have the honor of being an elected national co-chair of this march and will be in our nation’s capital for over a […]

James Comey: the man with the purple asterisk

At least twice last year, it appears then-FBI Director James Comey bowed to pressure from Republicans in Congress to do political damage to Democratic presidential candidate, Hillary Clinton. As the controversy-ridden former prosecutor, one-time corporate attorney and now unemployed bureau chief settles into his new role as erstwhile presidential spoiler, Trump Memos in hand, an […]

Caitlyn Jenner’s growing pains

When June approaches, I always like to reflect on the pantheon in our LGBTQ community. However, when it comes to Caitlyn Jenner it is difficult to fathom how she went from icon to outcast. Is it transphobia? Is it because she was once part of the over exposed Kardashian clan on their forever running TV […]

Transgressing gender in the Bible

I was raised in Evangelical and Pentecostal traditions where I wasn’t taught to see my transgender self in the Bible. With socially conservative Christian dogma being that transgender people are not of God, it’s important to note there are gender variant people in the Bible where God worked through them. Bible scholar and actor Peterson […]

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 […]

The Amazon Trail: A lesbian elder’s warning

A friend of many decades, who currently depends on federal assistance for affordable housing, sent me her concerns about the current direction of our government. As a lesbian, a feminist, a woman, a senior with disabilities, and a progressive activist, she feels especially vulnerable right now.  She needed anonymity, but gave me permission to share […]

Time for companies in California to be 100 percent restroom sign compliant

I spend a lot of money at coffee houses. I don’t eat out a lot, or drink alcohol at all; coffee is my major vice. I notice when I go to a local coffee house, or a chain coffee house like Starbucks, how they have their restroom stalls marked. As of March 1 of this […]

The ACA has never been more popular

The Affordable Care Act (ACA) passed with no Republican votes. It’s a favorite talking point of the right, or was until Tuesday. Obamacare is now bipartisan, thanks to 20 Republicans who voted against the American Health Care Act (AHCA) that squeaked through the House of Representatives by 217-213. Did those 20 Republicans, who ran on […]

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 […]

TDOE’s heartbreaking protest

Hearing a transgender police officer being called “pig” by a protesting group plugged into the Trans Youth Project (TYP) at the recent Transgender Day of Empowerment (TDOE) struck me as heartbreaking. “We want The Center to be a space that is safe. This means no cops,” read an April 14 statement from the TYP’s Facebook […]
