The reporting by many publications on the Trump Administration's new policy on awarding visas to U.N. officials and foreign diplomats from other countries who are in same-sex relationships has generated fear and anger by many in the LGBT community. Most articles would have you believe from their headlines and content that the new State Department policy will halt visas for same-sex partners of foreign diplomats, so it’s understandable why people are worked up. So was I when I first read it. The only problem with this narrative is, it isn’t actually true. Because there is so much disinformation ..read more

Though it took nearly seven months to be realized, the confirmation of President Trump’s inspired pick of Richard “Ric” Grenell to serve as the U. S. ambassador to Germany is now a fait accompli, and deservedly so. After a delay seemingly as interminable as the fruitless Russia probe by Special Counsel Robert Mueller, obstreperous Democrats finally folded Thursday when the Senate voted 56-42 to make Grenell our ambassador to Germany. Richard Grenell taking the oath of office on May 3rd before Vice President Pence while his longtime partner Matt Lashley holds the bible. Grenell has proven himse ..read more

June 12, 2017, will be the one-year anniversary of the Pulse nightclub shooting in Orlando. Forty-nine LGBT people and straight allies lost their lives that night, and dozens of others were wounded when a terrorist carried out a vicious attack on those simply wanting to have a fun night out with friends. It was the deadliest shooting in American history. We all remember where we were when we first heard of this horrific act of barbarism. In Los Angeles, people in our community woke up on Sunday morning, the second day of our usually joyous LGBT Pride Festival, to the news of what had happened ..read more

The Log Cabin Republicans are officially endorsing a “yes vote” on the Recall Gavin Newsom special election September 14th, 2021. California cannot suffer anymore under the hypocritical reign of Governor Gavin Newsom. This man is turning our Golden State into one of government dependence, rampant fraud, the fulfillment of woke progressive wish lists and an utter refusal to take accountability for his own hypocrisy. When the Covid-19 pandemic hit at the start of 2020, Gavin Newsom wasted no time in labeling many workers non-essential, resulting in the closure of 20,000 businesses. He shuttered ..read more

There has been a startling increase in attacks on America’s Jewish community across California and the entire country these past few weeks in response to Hamas firing rockets from Gaza into Israel, prompting a legitimate military response from Israel.  Particularly disturbing, was the targeting of Jewish diners near West Hollywood, just blocks from where I live, by “Free Palestine” protesters. People were asked if they were Jewish, before being subsequently attacked and beaten. Another was chased down in a vehicle that was flying “Free Palestine” flags.  First, Log Cabin Republican ..read more

In the midst of our daily chaos, heavily stoked fear and insidious Venezuelan fumes encompassing our state, there is still cause for some hope. Our California Chairman Matthew Craffey has penned an extremely relevant and useful OpEd for Outspoken about how we got to this remarkable state of affairs--and more importantly, what can be done about it.  Perhaps the most important takeaway is in Craffey's peroration:  If we are going to survive as a society, it is time that within each of our spheres of influence, we voice our own opposition to the bias we see within these institutions bo ..read more

Last Friday, Equality California solicited its base to sign onto a petition in support ofimpeaching President Trump. Citing nothing more specific than “heartless, discriminatory actions” which “attacked the LGBTQ community” ??  EQCA spent the vast majority of the email regurgitating the same worn phrases being spouted 24-7 by the Democratic Party.  For an organization whose stated mission is “striving to create a world that is healthy, just and fully equal for LGBTQ people” it is impossible to conclude anything else than that EQCA has simply become an ex ..read more
