Sunshine Task Force Appeal From Our Own Bruce Wolfe


Sunshine Task Force Appeal from our own Bruce Wolfe:

I call on you again for support on my reappointment to the Sunshine Task Force. The Board of Supervisors Rules Committee may commence this appointment as early as the first week in September.

As you may remember, I was the only LGBT disabled member of the public seeking (re)appointment to the Sunshine Task Force back in May but was passed over by one vote of the Board of Supervisors. This was due to superficial ambiguities that a couple of supervisors chose to exploit in a smear campaign against me and others also seeking reappointment, all whom are honest, ethical and with integrity.

=> => Please call your respective District Supervisor, especially, if you live in Districts 2, 3, 4, 7, 8, 10. The more calls, emails and fax will certainly make a difference. (If you wish to provide your support and do not live in SF, call or email anyway. It can’t hurt to have too much support.)

Save the Eagle!


[Sign the online petition here]

It has recently come to our attention that a non-LGBT group of entrepreneurs has entered into a purchase agreement for the former EagleTavern. This comes as a shock to many in the LGBT community as there was no outreach done or notice given about this historical community space despite the fact that many LGBT San Franciscans had expressed much interest in the building’s future. Furthermore our community had previously heard that there were queer entrepreneurs in negotiation to take over this space; buyers who intended to return it to a place that would continue to serve as a center to those who previously patronized the Eagle and enjoyed it as a LGBT-friendly space.

Resolution in Support of Justice for Eliana Lopez, Ross Mirkarimi, and Theo Mirkarimi

Resolution in Support of Justice for Eliana Lopez, Ross Mirkarimi, and Theo Mirkarimi
by the Harvey Milk Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender Democratic Club
Passed 7/17/12

Sheriff Ross Mirkarimi’s removal from office has triggered a serious discussion on issues ranging from a political figure’s legal accountability for his or her transgressions, to unscrupulous dismissals, political opportunism, and female disempowerment. We at the Harvey Milk LGBT Democratic Club are committed to justice for Eliana Lopez, Ross Mirkarimi, and their son Theo Mirkarimi. The current process as it stands now gives us no confidence that this will take place: Over the past several months, Eliana Lopez’s wishes have been blatantly disregarded, and opportunities for Ross Mirkarimi to come to terms with his behavior and the after-effects of his actions have been compromised at the altar of political spectacle.
