Fair warning: I’m going to do it again



Monday, May 20, 2019, I’ll be giving a short presentation to the Visalia City Council during the public comments section of the meeting.

Hopefully, I won’t have to defend against accusations of child pornography as I did last year!

I’ll be giving an update to the Council on Saturday’s Pride Visalia Festival, our recent expansion, and winning our category in the annual Give OUT Day fundraiser.

Since the city changed the rules after our 2012 and 2013 proclamations naming June LGBT Pride Month in Visalia, I won’t be asking for or receiving anything, but I will take the opportunity to bring the Council up to date on our recent achievements.  Our expansion gives us much needed space, as our (already expanded once) center continues to grow.

There’s a ton of stuff that I’d like to tell the council about, but the comments are limited to three minutes, so I’ll just have to do a quick review of this year, and invite the Council and the public to Pride Visalia 2019.

You can attend the Council meeting at City Hall West, 707 W. Acequia, Visalia. The meeting starts at 7pm. You can also watch on Facebook Live, on the city’s Facebook feed.


QueerVisalia’s Pride In The Park hits the newspaper

Leave a comment

Monday’s Visalia Times Delta contains a short article about Saturday’s Pride in the Park celebration put on by QueerVisalia.  Although I thought the usage of  “alternate lifestyle” was a bit odd, overall I’m happy with the article.  I was mentioned by name in the article, so there’s that.  😉

Attendance was less than the previous two years, and we’re still trying to decide just why that might have been.  We’ll be kicking around ideas for next year’s event during the next weeks and months.  If you have any suggestions, be sure to send them along.

In the meantime, keep checking back at the online article, the comments are sure to get interesting, and probably maddening!
