Hillcrest Town Council update - Nov. 20, 2015

There’s a lot going on these days so our Hillcrest Town Council meetings continue to have lots of lively discussion on all sorts of topics. At our Nov. 10 meeting, there was much discussion about two of Hillcrest’s hottest topics: homelessness and parking. Along with that, we also had a visit by state Sen. Marty Block.

Jamie Nova memorial to be held on Nov. 22 at Double Tree Hotel

A nova is a strong, rapid increase in brightness of a star. The word comes from the Latin for “new star”, because often a star previously too dim to be seen with the naked eye can become the brightest object in the sky (besides the sun and the moon) when it becomes a nova.

What does one say about one of the bravest people I have ever encountered in my life, Jamie Nova? She was never living in fear, never doubting for one second her beliefs and feelings about who she was.

Back Out With Benny: We are family

A question I’m frequently asked when I speak on various panels, or answer people’s interview questions is “What do you like best about being part of the LGBT community?” I’ve never once had to think hard about this question, because the answer really is simple: We are a family and despite our many differences (many of those differences are what make this family so beautiful), we are there for each other on our best days and our worst days.

Big screens and scream queens: Davis and Crawford are larger than life once again at The Landmark Hillcrest

Work, exhaustion, kids, errands and other things can get in the way of taking a surprising left turn and doing something completely out of the ordinary on a week night. It limits one to an evening schedule that is just as complicated as the morning and afternoon ones.

Take for instance going to a movie on a Wednesday after work. There are many people who haven’t experienced that, and I think it’s a shame. Especially when ones as fun and campy as “Strait-Jacket” and “Dead Ringer” are playing on the big screen.
