Good Times, Great Event, Happy Pride
So another successful Pride has come and gone. The streets are open, everything is put away and the planning will begin soon for next year’s event. However, that does not diminish the fun we had, and the camaraderie that was felt all day Pride Saturday. The entertainment this year was also top notch, and the main headliner, Belinda Carlisle, graces our cover with a picture taken during her performance. She, as well as all the rest of the entertainers, treated us to wonderful performances that we are sure to remember for years!
Get your “Girl Crush” on at Country in the Park
by Chris Narloch
Little Big Town, the popular country band currently riding the charts with their sultry single “Girl Crush,” will perform live at this year’s Country in the Park, an annual country concert presented by Sacramento station KNCI.
That controversial song was removed from playlists by some country stations earlier this year but has since become a number one hit, despite lyrics that seem to flirt with same-sex attraction.
A Good Weekend To See A Movie
by Chris Narloch
Now that Memorial Day (and that dud George Clooney movie) is behind us, we can move on to some good summer films. This weekend in fact finds three must-see movies arriving in local cinemas.
So after you’re done enjoying all the fun-in-the-sun at Sacramento’s Gay Pride on Saturday, consider cooling off at an air-conditioned theater.
President Obama Proclaims June 2015 as Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Pride Month
The White House, Office of the Press Secretary, May 29, 2015
From the moment our Nation first came together to declare the fundamental truth that all men are created equal, courageous and dedicated patriots have fought to refine our founding promise and broaden democracy's reach. Over the course of more than two centuries of striving and sacrifice, our country has expanded civil rights and enshrined equal protections into our Constitution. Through struggle and setback, we see a common trajectory toward a more free and just society.
But we are also reminded that we are not truly equal until every person is afforded the same rights and opportunities -- that when one of us experiences discrimination, it affects all of us -- and that our journey is not complete until our lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) brothers and sisters are treated like anyone else under the law.
