Surprise F-15 flyover on Saturday was a first in U.S. Pride history

Surprise F-15 flyover on Saturday was a first in U.S. Pride history.

Those loud jets you heard in the skies on Saturday were actually United States LGBT Pride history in the making.

A four-ship F-15 flyover from Cal Guard's Fresno 144th Fighter Wing shook windows and eardrums all across Hillcrest and its surrounding areas in a salute to transgender military service members. 

San Diego Pride: "Build Power, Not Walls"

Some may wish to focus on building walls, but we at Pride are looking to build upon our queer brilliance through international, intersectional, intergenerational mentorship.

Love Warrior: Health care, torn at the heart

Hospital and emergency room visitation rights have varied not only by state, but in some cases by city or county. Then there are outlandish cases like mine where the law is in place to protect LGBT couples yet the hospital treats these couples inhumanely.

Love Warrior: The end of 2010

As I’m sure most of you will recall the 2010 v. 2012 divide was intensely heated within our community. Friends, coworkers and organizations all drew their respective lines in the sand, and there wasn’t a gay on the block that wouldn’t shove their 10 v. 12 opinion down your throat.
