Dublin City Council Votes Not to Fly Rainbow Flag

by Neil Pople

On May 21st, 2019, the Dublin, CA City Council voted down a request to fly the rainbow flag over City Hall for this year’s Pride celebration.

Hate against our community was on full display during the Tuesday night city council meeting, as community speakers made wild (and, frankly, sickening) accusations that the gay community wanted to advocate for pedophilia and include it in the LGBTQI acronym.

Railroad Museum & Foundation Presents FREE Sesquicentennial Community Day on May 8

The California State Railroad Museum & Foundation invite the community to be part of history-in-the-making during a FREE Sesquicentennial Community Day on Wednesday, May 8, 2019 to commemorate the 150th anniversary of the completion of the Transcontinental Railroad. While the rest of the nation will likely recognize the achievement on May 10, Sacramento will begin the commemoration on May 8 to replicate history as closely as possible.

As background, the planned completion date of May 8, 1869 was delayed by two days due in part to a labor dispute and a major storm. With plans in place and dignitaries already poised to participate on May 8, Sacramento commemorated the completion in grand style two days before the rest of the nation.

See A Movie This Easter Weekend

By Chris Narloch

There are a couple new movies in local theaters this weekend that are perfectly timed for the holiday. Aretha Franklin’s roof-raising gospel documentary “Amazing Grace” just opened at Sacramento’s Tower Theatre, and Chrissy Metz stars as a mother whose son falls in to an icy lake in the fact-based and faith-based drama “Breakthrough,” which is in wide release.

I haven’t seen the Chrissy Metz movie, and I already recommended the film with Franklin in Outword’s current print edition. So here are reviews of three other family-friendly films you can see this weekend – or whenever – and two titles for adults only that I personally feel everyone should avoid.

“The Jungle” Will Blow Your Mind

By Chris Narloch

If you are a fan of edgy, thought-provoking theater, I recommend driving over to San Francisco as soon as possible so you do not miss “The Jungle,” one of the most unique theatrical productions of this or any year.

Sacramento hasn’t yet seen much immersive theater –which is all the rage in New York City these days – but “The Jungle” brings this phenomenon to the West Coast in a big way.
