Jessica Gelt | Playwright and “This Is Us” writer Bekah Brunstetter’s “The Cake,” a comedy about a Christian-conservative baker who balks at making a wedding cake for a lesbian couple, will follow its premiere last year in L.A. with a production at La Jolla Playhouse in February.

The theater announced that the creative team will include director Casey Stangl (South Coast Repertory’s “Venus in Fur”) and a cast featuring Aubrey Dollar (the film “One Small Hitch”), Wayne Duvall (Broadway’s “1984” and La Jolla’s “Bonnie & Clyde”), Miriam Hyman (TV’s “Blue Bloods”) and Tony Award-winner Faith Prince (“Guys and Dolls”).

Troy Masters | vy Bottini was born on Aug. 15, 1926, and at a very early age it was clear she was going places. 

She has spent a lifetime captivated by imagery — Charles Lindberg’s flight was an an absolute obsession for her. “I was transported by the idea of movement and meaning; what does it mean to have a destination, a purpose. We have to fight for that,” she told me on her 90th birthday in 2016.

ANNETTE SEMERDJIAN | Anyone who knows their history knows that we didn’t get our rights without a fight. That fight was long, it was hard, it spanned decades (centuries, in fact) and it was led by the part of our community that’s now reaching old age. We have the pioneers of the ‘50s, ‘60s and ‘70s to thank for our current resources in L.A., including the L.A. LGBT Center (formerly the Gay Community Services Center), the ONE Archives at USC, and so much more.

An employee at the Santa Barbara News-Press deliberately changed a writer’s byline to ‘Paul Gayzalez’ instead of Paul Gonzalez. The employee also changed his title to ‘News-Press Faggoat,’ reports Gay Star News.

Gonzalez wrote a story on Monday (25 December) about last-minute Christmas shopping. But little did he know a colleague changed his byline and title to the homophobic slurs before it went to print.

The Santa Barbara News-Press issued an apology on Wednesday (27 December) and said the employee responsible has been fired.
