A look at what’s happening in LGBTQ Los Angeles and a few things that I’ve been working on:

  • Tracy Gilchrist, editor of SheWired, was the featured guest at this month’s mixer hosted by the National Lesbian & Gay Journalists Association -Los Angeles (NLGJA). She told us about some of her favorite SheWired scoops, including Kelly McGillis coming out.

  • California Governor Jerry Brown recently signed into law a bill with protections for transgender students. Predictably, some people are panicking and hoping to get the law overturned. This piece goes through common misconceptions about the law and refutes the myths.



  • An adult film performer’s positive HIV test led to a production shutdown. Meanwhile, the legal fight continues over Measure B, which was backed by the AIDS Healthcare Foundation.
