And don’t you forget it: Pride was a riot. Last year, COVID-19 could not cancel Pride, and the celebration went virtual, was illuminated – it carried on. Closer to the streets, the people got back to basics. Some of us called upon the spirit of Pride and the result, at least here in San Francisco, […]
America, you we need to calm down and get a hold of this COVID-19 pandemic, already. This isn’t the 2009 H1N1 pandemic, and we all know it. Like, for real: WTF. It’s the middle of November, is it not, and we have been at this since spring. C’mon now. Door to door since the last […]
Top of the morning to ya, folks…world. Here in San Francisco, we are off to our first virtual AIDS Walk: Live at Home at 10:00, with Team Levi’s. What can I tell ya, I’m a Levi’s bitch – but I am not COVID-19’s. #SanFrancisco! Our AIDS Walk has teamed up with AIDS Walk New York on […]

(You do not need to fuck with the N95 masks, so don’t hoard those, OK.) I thought face masks already […]
Pandemic or no pandemic, the culture’s gonna do what the culture’s gonna do – good, bad, and fugly. That much is true. But where is the cultural responsibility in America in 2020? Where is the collective that is humanity on Earth at this point in time? Winter was, spring is barely gonna be. Urgh, and, some people, […]
Listen to your elders, kids. They’ve been around the block rather quite a few more times. And they have all the stories. I met a wise woman named M.J. last week, at the second meeting of the recently assembled San Francisco Street-Level Drug-Dealing Task Force. Look into that, too, OK. Btw, what…a beautiful room that […]
