Political loose cannons

comp

I have rejected the idea that Donald Trump and Sen. Bernie Sanders are similar in any way, but now I know that I have been wrong. Both Sanders and Trump are political loose cannons. Their respective campaigns have a common theme; I will harm my own party in my pursuit of the presidency. At first, […]

#GayMediaSoWhite

cover comps

When I started San Diego LGBT Weekly there were many in the community that offered their sage advice. One of those phrases of wisdom was “if you put anything other than a young white man on the cover, the number of people picking up your magazine will decrease.” I was horrified that people thought they […]

North Carolina and Georgia

Discrimination --

The LGBT community has finally crossed over into the mainstream. In the last 10 months with the Supreme Court decision supporting marriage equality in the United States, lesbians, gays, bisexuals and transgender Americans have seen a dramatic shift in how America views our community. That shift underscores the importance of the Supreme Court. The Supreme […]

HRC: Here We Go Again

This week, the Human Rights Campaign has endorsed Illinois Republican Senator Mark Kirk for reelection over Democratic candidate Tammy Duckworth. Many in the community are outraged, but we have been here before, and unfortunately I actively participated. In October of 1998, I, along with majority on the Board of Directors of HRC, decided to endorse […]

Sorry Bernie

Bernie Sanders

Over the last several days, the Bernie Sanders presidential campaign has put forth a narrative that suggests if the super delegates voted according to the vote of their state then Sanders will win the Democratic presidential nomination. Being a Harvard MBA and a numbers nerd, I decided to take a look at the Sanders’ campaign […]

HBA honors Nancy – but why? Dear Mr. Younger, I am writing you out of concern and disgust over the flag at Normal Street flying at half-staff this week. I came across your email from the Hillcrest Business Association’s (HBA)Web site. If this is not a matter that you are involved with, if you would […]

Bill is not perfect …

Clinton

Editor’s Note: The original version of this editorial said Bill was reelected, the scandal actually happened during Clinton’s second term. Thanks to all our readers who noted our error. With that simple phrase Hillary Clinton can completely disarm the attacks about her husband that voters expect from Donald Trump in a general election match-up. Even stronger would be for Hillary […]

Thank you Marco Rubio

Marco Rubio

It is without question that Marco Rubio exposed the major flaws in Donald Trump’s candidacy at the most recent Republican presidential debate: his questionable business practices. Whether it was defrauding Trump University students, manufacturing a line of ties offshore, or hiring undocumented workers, Rubio put Trump’s conservative hypocrisy front and center. Unfortunately for Rubio and […]

The Supremes

193_5438_8158.jpg

No not Diana Ross, the other Supremes, the Supreme Court. Each presidential political season the Supreme Court gets short shrift because the average American does not often feel the impact of a Supreme Court decision on their life. There is nothing farther from the truth for the LGBT community. The LGBT community fully knows why […]
