The last word by George W. Zander

OUR Transgender Community, by Thomi Clinton


Coinciding with National Coming Out Day, TDOR Palm Springs will have a historical moment in Coachella Valley and possibly Riverside County.  From Oct. 10th to 12th, there will be a festival called the Transgender L.A.T.E. Festival at the Tolerance Education Center in Rancho Mirage.  At this event there will be a wide variety of Transgender Movies, Local Transgender Singers and Musicians, and local Transgender Artists. After each evenings presentation there will be a Q & A from Allison Lenore Annalora and others.  Allison is dear friends with those in the Screaming Queens documentary whom have shared their life with her about that pivotal time in our history for California human rights.  To my knowledge and Google’s knowledge, nothing like this has occurred in the Valley.  The importance and relevance to support this will allow future events like this to occur.  Maria Roman’s “Remember Me In Red” will be shown again for those that missed the event and for those that did not attend that event we sold out.

Dear PS: I have trouble with social interaction; approaching people, starting conversations and carrying conversations in social situations are difficult for me. It seems to me that the normal person knows how to carry on polite conversation. They understand how to ask relevant questions and convey interest and attention; they know how to carry on a conversation and contribute in a way that doesn’t overpower the flow. And then there’s me! I have no trouble interacting at work or in school situations, and I have no problem talking about me or contributing stories about myself and my experiences; it is when we go over and above that introductory level that my skills seem to be sorely lacking.

Ladies Of Hollywood on Sunday, October 26th at 2 PM at Arthur Newman Theater

Ms. Dancel’s show will complete the 5th season of the Sundays In Summer Series presented by Les Michaels at the Arthur Newman Theater at The Joslyn Center in Palm Desert. The show, which pays tribute to Doris Day, Judy Garland, and Marilyn Monroe, was a tremendous hit with the audience last season, making it an easy choice to replace Suzy Cadham who was scheduled but had to cancel.  

Broadway performer, Jason Graae, directed “Ladies Of Hollywood” and joining Ms. Pancel will be pianist and musical director John Randall. Singing many of the most memorable songs associated with Day, Garland, and Monroe, Diane takes you on a journey of their careers and personal life and how they’ve influenced Diane herself.

Statement on today’s decisions by courts to strike down voter ID laws

WASHINGTON, DC, Oct. 10, 2014 — Today the US Supreme Court and the US District Court struck down voter ID laws in Wisconsin and Texas respectively. “This is a good day for democracy. Of course, the opposite is also true: this is a bad day for those who wish to deprive people of their most fundamental right — the right to vote. Now we must redouble our efforts to restore the Voting Rights Act and to ensure that every LGBTQ voter gets the opportunity to vote at the upcoming election.” Continue Reading →

JERSEY’s JOURNAL by Jersey Shore


When I mention Smokers, do you know to what or whom I am referring? No, it doesn’t involve Marijuana, even though you all know I am a card carrying “Pharmacy” patient. Smokers, or Mr. Smokey, to be accurate, is my 10 year old Chihuahua/Terrier mix Rescue Dog. My little diva is a whopping nine pounds soaking wet. He is wonderful, emotional, exciting, and sometimes aggravating. Continue Reading →
