San Diego Remembers moves forward with plans for #SpiritDay 2015

On Oct. 15, 2015, SDR invites the community to don their purple attire and meet at the John Wear plaque for a time of refection, to celebrate those memories at a Spirit Day Parade immediately after, and finish at a resource reception, where you can find out how to activate your activism in one of San Diego’s LGBTQ social justice efforts.

Head to The Center for Guys, Games & Grub on Wednesday!

This free event also includes pizza, snacks, beer and beverages for all attendees while enjoying fun games, conversation and friends. A full auditorium of men typically show up each month.

Back Out With Benny: Sunday Fundays and more

Around Hillcrest, my favorite day of the week is Sunday (known by many as “Sunday Funday”). In the afternoon, a lot of people are out and about enjoying the many restaurants and bars in the area without the expectations of a Friday or Saturday night out.
