Pride Issue 2022


Pride Issue 2022

Our annual Pride issue is coming a little early this year, but is it ever really too early to celebrate the activism and visibility of the LGBTQ-plus community? We talk to the Pacific Pride Foundation about the upcoming summer of in-person events, why it’s important to remember the activist roots of Pride, and the current legislative threats facing the LGBTQ-plus community, and we speak with a trans woman who found the solace and space she needed during the pandemic to become the person she is today.

Weekly Poll
What do you think about the 2023-31 Housing Element?

The state is right to crack down on local jurisdictions, we need more housing!
Local jurisdictions should have been making more housing develop progress earlier on.
It's a significant jump, and I don't know if we'll meet the state's expectations.
The increased number is pointless, and nothing will change anyway.
