gay pride month

SDGLN Weekly Wrap: June 15 - June 21, 2019

Here is everything we covered in SDGLN this week.

Pride month is in full swing and so are the celebrations. Many cities are enjoying Pride festivities and with that comes both the good and bad. The good are the many events that commemorate Stonewall, the genesis of the Gay Rights Movement.

Locally San Diego drag queens reach "legendary" status in a new exhibit at the San Diego History Center. 

LGBTQ pride events display disparities

Some are waving the cautionary finger that within our community not all are equal. And pride events can be public displays of those disparities.

While we all rev up each June for pride so, too, do the fault lines of race and class in our larger white LGBTQ community.

With advances such as hate crime laws, legalization of same-sex marriage across the country, and with homophobia viewed as a national concern, the LGBTQ movement has come a long way since the first pride march in 1969.
