An open note…

Hey All – I know that I haven’t been posting every day since the election and I apologize.  I had no idea how much work and effort it would take to be a “community organizer” and “gay rights advocate” in the face of our crushing defeat.  I am so inspired, though, by those that have come out since to put our civil rights on the front page and around the family kitchen table.  We shall have equality.  One final request on this, please, please go see the amazing film MILK.  And please encourage your friends and families to do the same.  In addition to being a remarkable film, it is a history lesson that our community, and the world, needs to know. 

I will soon turn my attention back to the site and back to all things West Hollywood.  Thanks and have a festive, fun, and safe holiday season.
