WEHOville logo1This year’s L.A. Pride festival and its Resist March are likely to cost the City of West Hollywood $1.1 million, an increase of 71% over what the city spent on the event last year.

The projected costs are included in a formal proposal that the city underwrite costs of the event, which in June will be in its 47th year. That proposal will go before the West Hollywood City Council at its meeting on Monday.

A major factor in the cost increase is the June 11 Resist March, which by some estimates could bring as many as 750,000 to West Hollywood, a compact city with about 36,000 residents.

wehoblueWest Hollywood City Hall is being cast in blue nighttime light during the last week in March 2017 in support of a groundbreaking HIV prevention campaign launched by the Los Angeles LGBT Center to raise awareness about pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP), a once-daily medicine that, when taken daily, can reduce the risk of HIV infection by up to 99 percent.

The Center’s boldly named campaign, “F*ck w/out Fear,” was activated in January 2017 and has been effective in reaching people who are most at risk of HIV infection — young gay and bisexual men of color and transgender women, among others. Since its launch, the Center has doubled the number of people it is helping to get on PrEP each week. PrEP is available only by prescription and everyone who gets PrEP is advised that it will not protect them from other sexually transmitted diseases.

"Time to party, bitches!"

E!'s new series What Happens at The Abbey is set to premiere this May! On the show, cameras will follow the lives of the employees who work at L.A. hotspot The Abbey and you can bet they'll be major drama.

And before the show premieres on May 14 at 10 p.m., we have an exclusive first look at the sexy cast photos and a sneak peek video. In the supertease above, we see the cast partying, fighting and stripping down!

"The Abbey absolutely is a soap opera," The Abbey employee Elizabeth says. "Which basically means there's a lot of fighting and a lot of f--king!"

lgbtqnationlogoLGBTQ Nation | Alex Bollinger - Last year in February, veteran journalist Karen Ocamb was told that she was “laid off” from her position as news editor at Frontiers magazine.

In an interview immediately following being fired, Ocamb said that she understood the decision. “I see my being laid off as a purely financial business decision, no matter what direction the new owners may choose,” Ocamb told PressPassQ.

For over twenty years, I have been listening to life stories of many incredible people. It is part of my job. Many people might think I am listening to their problems, but I hear stories. People who come to me are brave storytellers. It is a privilege to hear a personal mythology that has never been shared before. There are times when someone’s story is a mixture of broken pieces of tragedies and losses. No matter how fragmented and tragic a person’s story, I know there is a hero somewhere in it, waiting to be validated. I view psychotherapy as a place of storytelling where a fragmented tale can be weaved into a hero’s journey, and help people feel proud of their resiliency and courage to survive. This is how people become mythical beings. Often the emotional wounds begin to heal once the personal narrative finds a voice.
