Equality California Thanks Brown for Historic Commitment to LGBTQ Civil Rights

Equality California, the nation's largest statewide LGBTQ civil rights organization, released the following statement from Executive Director Rick Zbur on Monday, Jan. 7th 2019:

“Governor Jerry Brown has long championed the cause of LGBTQ equality in California, making more progress in his four terms than any other governor in the nation to date. From decriminalizing same-sex relationships in 1975 and appointing the state’s first openly gay judge in 1979 to signing more than 55 pro-equality bills into law during the last eight years, Governor Brown has affirmed his commitment to ensuring all Californians are treated with equal dignity and respect. We have not always agreed with the governor’s approach to achieving full LGBTQ equality, but we have never once doubted his sincere dedication to our cause.

By Tom Moon, MFT, The Examined Life

The tradition of making New Year’s resolutions is ancient: it can be traced all the way back to the Babylonians. I think it has survived because it can be a very helpful practice.

Beautiful Black Folks At The Movies - Plus “Rosemary’s Baby” At The Crest

by Chris Narloch

So many of the movies released this Christmas were so bad that I decided to spotlight several fine films featuring African-American actors, two of them films released at Thanksgiving (“Creed ll” and “The Green Book”) that are still playing at one or two area theaters.

Additionally, I also review “If Beale Street Could Talk,” which is helmed by Barry Jenkins (the great African-American director of “Moonlight”) and features a superb, mostly black cast. “If Beale Street Could Talk” opened at Sacramento’s Tower Theatre on Christmas Day.

The River City Chronicles by J. Scott Coatsworth - Part Five

Sacramento author J. Scott Coatsworth has written and published a number of short stories, novellas and full-length novels, but “The River City Chronicles” holds a special place in his little writer heart.

In many ways, it is a love letter to Sacramento, one that we wanted to share with Outword’s readers. To do that we have uploaded the next installment of chapters of the book here, for you to read online.

Previously in the River City: Diego's sister found his ex-wife Luna - the one he's still married to - in Italy, and told him that she wants to see him. Matteo said they would figure things out, but then Diego’s blackmailer called asking for his money. Diego and Matteo met with Max at Lucca and told him to screw himself. Max ran out of the restaurant and was hit by a car.
