President Pledges to Tackle ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’ in 2010
WASHINGTON, DC –
President Obama’s historic remarks regarding the “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” law in this year’s State of the Union address have raised the hopes of many LGBT organizations that have been fighting for an end to the law that prohibits lesbians and gays from serving openly in the military.

The Lambda Players Are in Crisis and Need Your Help
An Open Letter from The Lambda Players

Like many theatre companies here in Sacramento and across the country though, The Lambda Players are facing difficult financial times. The bottom line — The Lambda Players need to raise $21,000 by March 1, or this part of Sacramento’s GLBT history will disappear forever.
