Pride Issue 2020



By SUN STAFF

June was Pride Month, but the usual parades and events that commemorate the occasion were waylaid by the COVID-19 pandemic. The month also coincided with the Trump administration and the Supreme Court of the United States respectively taking steps backward and forward for the LGBTQ-plus movement. There’s still a long way to go, and despite the pandemic’s hold on in-person group gatherings, the LGBTQ-plus community did find a way to celebrate Pride Month on the Central Coast. A group in Lompoc shone a light on the deaths of transgender or gender nonconforming people while the Gala Pride and Diversity Center in SLO opted for a drive-by photo op. You can read about it all in this year’s annual Pride issue.

No. The existing report is enough.
Yes—the Foxen project should be reviewed on its own.
That project should have been killed years ago.
I don't care; COVID-19 issues are more important to me.
