Hold On, Sacramento!

Sac Pride is so pleased and proud to have Wilson Phillips headlining the entertainment at this year’s festival, which is less than two weeks away! And, we here at Outword Magazine are super excited to once again have the Official Pride Guide tucked in, nice and neat, into the pages of this issue of Outword. Each year this issue is, by far, the biggest and most sought-after issue we produce and we are expecting great things of it.

Don’t miss “On The Town” in San Francisco this week

Don’t miss “On The Town” in San Francisco this week

by Chris Narloch

If you live near The City or can get to San Francisco later this week, I recommend you drop everything and secure tickets to Michael Tilson Thomas and the San Francisco Symphony’s new semi-staged concert production of Leonard Bernstein’s “On the Town,” at Davies Symphony Hall, May 25-29, 2016.
