Some LA Pride History

This year, for some reason, seems as though the concept of Pride has exploded all over the world. It’s getting more attention, support, and mainstream coverage than I’ve ever seen before. And that took years to happen. I never thought I’d see it happen in my lifetime. So this article about the history of LA Pride is an excellent read for anyone who’s curious about the history.

But over a half-century, it has also helped chronicle the LGBTQ community in Southern California. Once each decade — including today — the parade commemorates the Stonewall uprising.

Here’s the link. From what I gather through posts on Instagram, this year LA Pride was covered in its entirety on local LA news. That in itself is big. 

First Openly Gay Philadelphia Sheriff Found Dead

Of course I’ve been seeing a lot about this death in local Philadelphia news this week. It’s a very sad story. 

Dante Austin, 27, was found dead from what authorities said appeared to be a self-inflicted gunshot wound at his desk inside the Philadelphia Sheriff’s Office early Friday.

Here’s more. Austin was actually working on his master’s degree at a local university.


Reader Reviews: “This story will stay with you and you will feel you know every character and the beauty of their home in the mountains of North Carolina. A sequel is in order and a film as well. Bravo Field”
