This week's top stories include more on the shake-up at San Diego Pride; LGBT History Month icons; and Grammy-winner Dave Audé at Rich's this Saturday.
Troubles still abound this week with San Diego Pride, the organization that produces San Diego's annual LGBT Pride Parade and Music Festival. After a community organized committee attempted to negotiate with the organization's board of directors, the group reported that they felt no progress was made. Later in the week, a former member of the community committee, along with a high level Pride volunteer both told SDGLN that they want to distance themselves from the group of community members who have organized as the "Pride Accountability Action Committee" (PCAC). We'll continue to report on developments over at San Diego Pride as we hear them.
With the Presidential Election just 18 days away, there's lots of stories focused on supporters of both major candidates. This week, we had two stories related to Trump: A gay couple say they've received death threats for supporting Trump; and a 'Gays for Trump' supporter puts anti-Trump protestor in headlock at rally.
The PCAC shared a copy of their open letter to the San Diego Pride board with SDGLN. Read it HERE.
In our Causes section, we continued our profiles of Equality Forum's LGBT History Month icons. This week we featured Essex Hemphill; Ashok Row Kavi; Frances Kellor; Jim Kepner; Kay Lahusen; Terrence McNally; and Janet Mock.
