See you at Phoenix Pride downtown tomorrow at Indian Steele Park. Hope everyone has fun and stays hydrated. Relax and enjoy.
My daughter usually comes with me, but she will be playing in a qualifying chess tournament so she can play in the State tournament.

Pride Event in Phoenix

2006 "Party In The Park"
SATURDAY, 4/1/06: 11:00 am - 9:00 pm Parade 11:00am
on3rd Street north from Virginia
History of the Gay and Lesbian Movement On June 28th, through 30th, 1969, after continual harassment by the New York City police, the patrons of the Stonewall Bar, located on Christopher Street in Greenwich Village, openly defied the unjustified raids and took to the streets in demand of their civil liberties. These riots continued through the weekend, until Monday morning. The gay crowd numbered over two thousand, and in this act of integrity and self affirmation, the modern Lesbian and Gay Rights Movement was born and was soon formally launched into such organizations as the Gay Liberation Front.

Bisexual, Gay, Lesbian and Transgender community is welcome at UU

Unitarian Universalists are a welcoming group:
THEIR VISION: The Office is guided by the vision that someday we will be able to put ourselves out of business and that oppression against bisexual, gay, lesbian, and/or transgender people, whether it be overt or subtle, will be a thing of the past.
PART OF THEIR STORY: Unitarian Universalism has been on record as supporting the rights of bisexual, gay, and lesbian people since 1970. The Office was formed in 1973. We have advocated against sodomy laws and job and housing discrimination. We have advocated for ceremonies of union and same-gender marriage, the right to serve in the military, the right to lead congregations as ministers and religious professionals, and the right to be parents...

Non-fat, No Whip Mocha

Where is the best place to get a mocha? Starbucks seems to make the best mocha I have tasted. Friends tell be Einsteins has better regular coffee, though. Now the question is which Starbucks to frequent. At this point, I seem to have a preference for the Starbucks on Stapley and the 60 next to the AMC. The one next to Trader Joes on Gilbert is okay, too. Where do you go and why?

Wake up and smell the effort

Proof that positive events do happen in the valley of the sun. I know people are out there (forgive the pun), I just can't seem to hear or see them in the east valley. Hello? Are you there? What can we do as a community to help those who are in need of enlightenment? Should we meet for coffee?
