COMMENTARY

Legislation to establish June as Pride Month in a statute passed the Assembly Committee on Governmental Organization by a vote of 15-0. Assembly Bill 2969 is authored by Assemblymember Evan Low (D-Silicon Valley), Chair of the California Legislative LGBT Caucus, and co-authored by all members of the California Legislative LGBT Caucus.

CAUSES

The popularity of The Red Dress Party San Diego (RDPSD) rises every year. Last year over 90-percent of the tickets sold out just a few weeks before the event. Organizers announced pre-sale tickets go on sale this Friday. 

ENTERTAINMENT

Celine Dion then released her new song “Ashes” from the upcoming Deadpool 2 soundtrack.

The cast of RuPaul's Drag Race is dwindling faster than the length of a glue stick in the Werk Room. Last week the girls had to "sit on a secret" and blindly guess the items that were placed on a chair using only their tush for the mini challenge; a traffic cone made for an especially intriguing execution. We talked to Blair St. Clair about her time on the show.

SOCIAL
