When We Rise Left Out So Much of Our History
Commentary by Gary Miller
Who watched ABC’s When We Rise? I was given the impression it would be the history of gay rights. Before I watched the first episode, I was wondering where they would start.
Would they go back to ancient Greece? Or would they begin with researchers on the topic in the late 1800s in Germany? Would they start with the contributions of the Mattachine Society founded in 1950? Would it include the Daughters of Bilitis, which formed in 1955? Was it going to be just San Francisco or a nationwide history?
‘Get Out’ And See A Movie This Week
by Chris Narloch
Disney’s big budget, live-action movie version of ‘Beauty and the Beast’ recently opened, and I urge you to see the film, if only to support that beloved, family-friendly company’s decision to hire an openly gay director and allow him to turn one of the movie’s minor characters gay.

San Francisco Community Commemorates Transgender Day of Visibility (TDOV) on March 31
A group of community organizations, led by the Trans Employment Program of the SF LGBT Center and Trans:Thrive at the Asian Pacific Islander (API) Wellness Center will host a free community-wide event to commemorate Transgender Day of Visibility (TDOV) on March 31 at SOMArts.
TDOV is an annual celebration around the world dedicated to lifting the accomplishments and victories of transgender & gender non-conforming (GNC) people while raising awareness of the work that is still needed to save trans lives. The celebration was started in 2009 as a response to the lack of LGBT celebrations focused on transgender and GNC people's successes.

Black History Month, celebrated in February, may be over for this year, but March appears to be Black Movie Month, if unofficially, as movies with African-American heroes (and heroines!) fill movie screens around the country.
“Hidden Figures,” “Fences,” and “Get Out” were all still playing in theaters as I wrote this, and “Moonlight” was back in hundreds of theaters during the same week that it won the Best Picture Oscar and then debuted on DVD.
