The SF LGBT Pride Committee Has Nothing to Be Proud of Over Bradley Manning - by Adam Richmond
Glenn Greenwald’s article in The Guardian titled “Bradley Manning is off limits at SF Gay Pride parade, but corporate sleaze is embraced” (4/27/13) has internationally publicized the cowardly decision of the San Francisco Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender Pride Celebration Committee to rescind its election of political prisoner U.S. Army Private Bradley Manning as a Grand Marshal of the annual Gay Pride Parade. Manning is the gay service member charged with giving WikiLeaks thousands of ...

SF Pride No Longer Represents Transgender Community? - by a TG person
It is common knowledge that SF Pride rejected Bradley Manning, as a Grand Marshal for this years' celebration. It is believed that Bradley Manning is transgender. Many people in the United States say he is a hero, while some view him as a traitor. Even though veteran Grand Marshals voted him in, SF Pride President Lisa Williams went on the record and said "it was a mistake and never should have happened." But what is more disconcerting is that the San Francisco Pride Committee does not appe...

Bradley Manning Rejected as Grand Marshal by pro-Obama SF Gay Parade Director - by repost
The Obama fans insist on flouting their reactionary, pro-business and pro-war politics everywhere. The latest is the rejection of the appointment of Bradley Manning as a grand marshal at San Francisco's annual gay pride parade on the last Sunday on June. Manning is the heroic young gay military person who embarrassed US imperialism by exposing its lies, but no one was harmed. For that, he should be given the Congressional Medal of Honor and the Nobel Peace Prize.

Queer Artists Strike Back at Anti-Gay and Anti-Islamic Ads - by Street Cred
Pamela Geller hit a new low with the Islamophobic ads that appeared on SF buses this week. She pretends to care about gay rights, but really she's just trying to use the gay community to promote her hate agenda. Bay Area queers aren't taking it! Queers strike back

Queering Snitches, Landlords, and Bosses? Why Anarchists Must Not Host "Queering Anarchism - by qu@ck
We are writing to inform you about concerns we have with the book Queering Anarchism, recently published by AK Press. This is not a critique of the politics within Queering Anarchism, albeit we have many, rather it is to offer you vital information on some of the contributing authors. We believe this information to be damning and contrary to anarchy, anarchism, and revolutionary movements alike.

American Rita Boyadjian and her German life partner, Mara, met in Cologne, Germany at a European Gay Pride celebration in 2002 while Rita was touring Europe on vacation.

Judy and Karin: Volunteering for Our Cause Leads to a Handshake and a Few Words with Presi - by Judy Rickard
Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano was to be seated behind us. As she walked in, I talked to her about our issue and shook her hand and thanked her for her efforts thus far. She said "It's in the President's proposal," meaning inclusion of same-sex binational families in comprehensive immigration reform. ...we shook President Obama's hand and reminded him we need his help. What did he say? "We won't forget you! You're in there!"

Gorky Park - by jabber
Just after the revolution, at least during the first decade of Soviet rule one could speak about a great improvement in the sexual emancipation and gender equality. For instance, in the Criminal Codes of the RSFSR of 1922 and 1926 there were no articles concerning the criminal responsibility for being gay, since Soviet legislation was unaware of the “crimes against morality”.

Project Homeless Disconnect: Shelter Run Around Part 8 - by a TG person
So I am once again homeless. 5th time in my life, 3rd time this year alone. San Francisco has this thing called Project Homeless Connect. I needed shelter tonight November 27th after losing yet another job. Project Homeless connect referred me to a Dept. called Everyday Connect. They told me to go too Glide Memorial between the hours of 4pm and 7pm, so I did. After wading through the Tenderloin I was told by the tall African American fellow. "We have no shelter tickets" available. So I called...

Same-Sex Couples Struggle to Stay Together Despite U.S. Laws - by GetEQUAL and Out4Immigration
How many more holidays must we go through apart? Will we have to celebrate our ten-year anniversary over the phone, as we celebrated our five-year anniversary? There is no reason for the United States to maintain these unjust laws other than bigotry, pure and simple. But we, as Americans, can choose to stand up and tell the government that we will no longer endure the pain and suffering being inflicted upon American citizens. It is time for comprehensive immigration reform that includes LGBT ...

SF Nudity Ban is a Political Witchhunt - by Had Enough
San Francisco Supervisor Scott Wiener succeeded in obtaining passage of a very reactionary nudity ban in San Francisco in a close 6 to 5 vote on November 20, 2012, with opposition from David Campos, Christina Olague, John Avalos, Eric Mar, and Jane Kim. All 11 supervisors are Democrats. Supervisor Wiener, elected in 2010 from District 8 (the predominately gay Castro plus Duboce Triangle, Noe Valley, Diamond Heights and Glen Park), who happens to be gay, has hopefully promoted one piece of r...

Anti-Gay Nonsense in SF - by Gay Marriage is a Civil Right
The Bible thumpers landed at Market on Embarcadero, at the main crosswalk going to the Ferry Building near Justin Herman Plaza, and today, Monday, Sept. 24, 2012, at 12 Noon, had a sandwich board sign with a color photo of their Christian religious leader promoting heterosexual marriage as the only valid marriage, and slick, multi-color flyers, very expensive, on top of the sandwich board sign. This promotion of hate must end as there is no free speech for people who FALSELY yell "fire" in a...
