A gay dad’s Father’s Day

The San Diego LGBT Community Center: San Diego’s ‘gay city hall’ is busier than ever

Don’t Ask Don’t Tell and Prop. 8 are relegated to their rightful places in the dustbin of history; it seems like pretty much everyone who wants to be open about their sexual orientation is; and it appears to many that HIV is a minor concern. So what’s there left for an LGBT Center to do? [...]
