LGBTQ Month: San Diego LGBTQ Community 

*Check out the bonus article at the bottom – about best bars and clubs in SD

In San Diego, the month of July is traditionally reserved and well-known as LGBTQ month. As a result, as time passes, the expectation grows. Not only will we celebrate and revel throughout the month, but we will also express ourselves clearly.

More than ever, it appears that we must rally in large numbers, show up, and protest. Every single freedom we believe we possess is in jeopardy. All of our feelings are valid, so be enraged or outraged if you want to.

We must shout from the rooftops in the face of news that seeks to limit and control our lives and bodies. The Supreme Court’s draft opinion on abortion is a heinous violation of fundamental human rights. Abortion is considered healthcare, a right, and is still legal. LGBTQ justice is reproductive justice. This is enough to incite our rage and action.Nobody will defend us or our rights if we do not defend ourselves. We are aware of this fact throughout history; we have been there many times before, not only as the LGBTQ community, but also as women, minorities, and so on… This is a team effort. As we strive for a diverse, inclusive, and free democracy, we must unite our movements in calling for action.

We will not only advocate for a rally, but we will also constantly remind each of us of the importance of voting. Primary elections are scheduled for June 2022, and general elections are scheduled for November 2022, so get involved, stay informed, and be proactive; there’s a lot at stake with midterm elections this year.
