Pride Issue 2018



Beginning a Pride celebration for a city that has never had one is a big deal, especially for its LGBTQ population. Local nonprofit the House of Pride and Equality (HOPE) brought Santa Maria’s first Pride festival to life in 2017, and this year’s event on June 30 is slated to be even bigger and better. For this week’s cover, editor Joe Payne sat down with HOPE’s board and got their firsthand account of what it takes to make Pride happen, and what it means to the Santa Maria Valley’s LGBTQ community.

Weekly Poll
Do you agree with the Santa Maria City Council's decision to regulate mobile car wash operations?

Yes. There's a reason the city receives lots of complaints about them.
No. These are people's livelihoods on the line, during a pandemic no less.
I understand the need to regulate, but I still want access to quick and easy car washing!
Car washes are a waste of money; just do it yourself.
