You know what one of my favorite things is about working on this paper? The interviews I do with people. Seriously. We have such a colorful, and diverse population living here in Central California that it’s never the same experience twice. As in, I have yet to come across two separate people who told similar stories or even gave similar perspectives. It’s kind of neat when you think about how often we have to pump out articles. But it’s not this particular tidbit that I’m entirely fascinated with. Most of who I get to sit down and chat with are typically those that are my senior. Generally speaking, they’re part of an older generation, and as such, have an overwhelming wealth of knowledge on their subject matter. When I get a chance to hear their story, I also hear all the passion, the strife, the work they poured into their craft or area of focus. And then it dawns on me, some young person today is getting an opportunity to do something cool because of the efforts of someone like my interview subject. This person may not be directly responsible or made the significant strides that afford some opportunity to the next generation, but their presence was part of the process. Progress isn’t a flash-in-the-pan kind of success. It takes time, agonizing work where the phrase “one step forward and two steps back” sing loud and often. When I listen


to the experiences of the decisions made or not made, scenarios that would be considered ‘unheard of ’ by today’s standards, I picture that previous generation “paving the way” in an analogous imagining. I grew up thinking that revolutions and change happened with the sort of ‘mow-through-the-tallgrass-with-a-tractor’ kind of ease and speed. But now, I realize that paving the way is more like large groups of people chiseling and hammering away small chips at a time through the hard stone center of a mountain. If you looked only at the work of one them, it would seem that they’re not making any impact at all, but when you look at the whole lot of them, it’s easy to see the amazing progress and change they’ve created. The way generations impact the world is much in the same way. Incoming generations have a duty to pick up the hammer and continue the work - or risk the pathway to remain or become closed forever. Like roads and bridges, once built they need ongoing care, maintenance to ensure they stand strong. Same with any privilege or rights we enjoy today. It doesn’t necessarily mean we have to lead a life of politics or join a movement. Sometimes, it’s as simple as listening to and learning the history of those who came before us, to keep us on the right track.


Raising The Bar Celebrating Pride has always meant celebrating the LGBTQ journey, but this year marks the beginning of a continuing project to document the Central Valley’s own queer history. by Lisa Talley |


ars. Nightclubs. Colloquial terms for the proverbial watering hole of modern society – a place to unwind, to mix, and for many, to stir up the beginning of an explosive weekend. It has hardly been a name that is instantly recognized as a synonym for salvation, in keeping with the true meaning of the word, unless you’re a part of the LGBTQ community. Imagine stifling repression weighted in the forced guilt and shame brought on by the outside world. Try, if you can, second-guessing your mannerisms, clothing, conversation, and most of all, the way you look at someone who catches your eye. It’s a suffocating, sometimes lonely, and often exhausting way to navigate everyday life, one that, for many a decade, was the only reality for members of the queer community. Gay bars and nightclubs allowed these members to hang their oppression at the door. It was freedom. It was safety. It was sanctuary. ‘Raising the Bar’ is this year’s theme for the annual Fresno Rainbow Pride Parade celebrating its 28th year in the historic Tower District on Saturday, June 2nd. Bar owners, past and present in the Central Valley area, are to be honored throughout the festival for their contributions to the community. An overwhelmingly apt tribute that

ties beautifully into the globally recognized Pride month of June which, in and of itself, honors the legendary 1969 riots of The Stonewall Inn that sparked the revolution towards acceptance.

More Than A Theme – A History Project Recognizing the longstanding history of queer-centric bars in the Central Valley and its lack of official documentation, CEO of Fresno Rainbow Pride and Publisher of News Link – a free monthly gay newspaper distributed from Bakersfield to Stockton – Jeffery Robinson, saw the need to record the past before it disappears altogether. From the Orange Ogre – a beatnik coffee house in 1950s downtown Fresno, Fran’s Pine Lake Lodge with an iconic creek running through the middle of the dance floor, Girl of the Golden West, the Express, the Circle, to the present bars of Legends, the Alibi, FAB, and the community’s most established bar, The Red Lantern; each establishment made its mark on the Central Valley. Beyond honoring the history of the bars at this year’s Pride Parade, Robinson


wanted to take the documentation to the next step by creating a detailed, comprehensive database that will be available for future generations to learn and, hopefully, expand upon. Helping him, and the Fresno Rainbow Pride Committee on this endeavor is Fresno State Assistant Pr o f e s s o r, Katherine Fobear. “Whether you identify LGBT or not, these bars are just as much about the history of Fresno as any other establishment,” says Fobear who continues to elaborate that what has been researched, archived, or stated about Fresno’s past has “largely ignored key demographics, particularly that of the LGBT community which has not only shaped the history of Fresno as a city, but the Central Valley as well.” As these establishments provided an essential place of acceptance, and more often than not, safety as a vital life source, for its patrons, these bars were also the meeting place for organizations and fundraisers that helped to support the community. Throughout the rampant rise of HIV and AIDS in the 1980s bars were “ground zero for confronting, addressing, and supporting those diagnosed with HIV and AIDS not only for the queer community which is where it was first getting attention but also for


those throughout the whole Central Valley,” shares Fobear. Organizations like the Imperial Dove Court, a non-profit organization which has served the LGBTQ community for over 44 years and continues to do so, found a home in these bars which allowed them to host fundraising events that directly benefitted those who had HIV/ AIDS throughout those tumultuous years. Through the Court’s tireless efforts, the non-profit also inspired into action other organizations such as the Central Valley AIDS Team, The Pink Panthers (a civil rights movement and activist group), and the local PFLAG (parents, families, and friends of lesbians and gays) to name a few. “Virgil [Wigley] of The Red Lantern has been the biggest supporter of the community. He’s the only one who let us put up posters, do shows, and fundraisers there. It’s also why he’s the King Father of the Imperial Dove Court – because he has been there for us since day one,” says Tiffany Taylor Tate, two-time Empress of The Imperial Dove Court and five-time Empress of The Imperial Sequoia Empire dept. Tulare Kings and Kern counties. Although bars are, obviously, only a piece of the overall picture, Jeffery Robinson’s initiative to record the past is about reclaiming and honoring their impact in shaping the landscape we understand today. The Central Valley is the culmination of its culturally and racially varied inhabitants, all of whose stories deserve to be told. Gay bars of the past are deeply embedded into the core of queer history, and the telling of that story cannot begin without also including that of the bars.

eferred to as the ‘pin drop heard round the world’ the 1969 riots at the Stonewall Inn in New York sparked a movement across the globe. In 1969, homosexual acts and the solicitation of homosexual acts were illegal. Gay bars became a place of refuge for gays, lesbians, and anyone else who would fall into the sexually suspect spectrum, where they could go to escape harassment safely. However, being a known gay establishment meant harassment from local law enforcement. The Stonewall Inn, along with other gay-friendly bars, suffered raids on occasion to bust up the clientele and arrest the offenders. On June 28, 1969, yet another raid came down in a series of attacks that had been happening all too frequently. As the police carted people outside and into a police van, they didn’t disperse as usual. Angry, frustrated, tired of the harassment, the patrons of Stonewall began jeering, vocally protesting, and throwing bottles and debris at the police officers. Law enforcement quickly lost control of the situation, and the protesters rioted well into the early morning until a riot-control squad arrived to disperse the violent crowd. The next few days were filled with even more rioting as the patrons, along with increasingly more members of the gay community growing the numbers to some 400 people, returned to Stonewall to face off with the local police. It was the first time that gays, lesbians, drag queens, and trans people united behind a common cause to fight injustice. On the one year anniversary of the riots, the first gay pride marches took place in New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Chicago. In the years that followed gay rights groups erupted in almost every major city in the U.S.

The project will start as a collection of oral interviews with an emphasis on critical members of the community who either owned, worked, or tended the bars over the years. Robinson and Fobear hope that this will spark public support that will lead to, ultimately, creating a database and archive that will be hosted and preserved in the Fresno State Library for the queer history of the Central Valley. The anticipated collection hopes to host oral histories, video interviews, photos, scanned documents, and a timeline of the bars. Fresno State has already expressed interest in the collection and Fobear will pursue grant applications in the fall to support the efforts of the project. It’s still unclear as to when the database will be open for public viewing, but hopes are high for the fall of 2019 or spring of 2020.

Bridging the Gap Between Generations “How can you move forward if you’re going to keep making the same mistakes? Learn from the past so that we can continue the positive, forward movement that we created from the thirty, forty years we’ve been doing this.” Camille Roberts, a performer, and longtime community member sits poised, reigning in his frustration with the queer youth of today. “Kids these days need to learn their history because they’re making the same mistakes we did in the 80s.” Like any demographic, a gap exists between the generations in understanding the journey of those pioneers who fought passionately to gain the level of acceptance that exists today. Documenting Central Valley queer history is, of course, rooted in the need to create visibility and recognition where there hasn’t been any before – but it’s also meant to connect the new generation to its legacy, one that affords them much more opportunity than their predecessors. It’s also a means to avoid similar mistakes, as Roberts points out. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released a report, just this year, about HIV trends in the U.S. for individuals under 30, and the numbers are trending upwards. Also reported, the result is due to a lack in preventative care such as practicing safe-sex, and the general assumption that they’re not at risk because HIV is perceived as much more manageable now than ever before. Recording history is just as important as studying it and making


use of valuable resources that are available, the likes of which the Fresno Rainbow Pride’s history project hopes to provide. Battles fought and won (or lost) throughout the globe didn’t just exist “out there,” but also hit home – and may again if the younger generation doesn’t look to its past for guidance. “I lost 44 friends in two years in the 80s … I’m starting to see this happening all over again, and it scares me because we could lose an entire generation,” Roberts continues.

‘survival is resistance.’ I think dancing, falling in love, singing, wearing a fabulous outfit in this space of incredible amounts of fear, hatred, and bigotry that’s cropping up today, it’s just as essential and a form of resistance as marching on the streets,” reflects Fobear. Gay bars have been synonymous with salvation, as they remain a place of safety and celebration. And if Stonewall has taught us anything, they’re also a place where revolutions begin.

The Spirit Of PRIDE

The team is actively looking for anyone and everyone willing to participate in an interview to share their experiences and knowledge of past bars or clubs from the entire Central Valley area. No story is too small, even if your experience is limited to a handful of visits to one bar, they’d still like to talk to you. Add your piece of the history. Email Jeff for more information at

The Fresno Rainbow Pride history project may tell the stories of the living, but they will also remember the magic of those who have passed on and the work they’ve done. It seems unlikely that a bar or club could be so political in the very nature of their existence. However, these out n’ proud establishments stood and survived in the face of ongoing violence, sexism, homophobia, transphobia – aside from the general difficulties of just maintaining a business in a competitive market, anyway. It’s a testament to an entire community’s resilience, creativity, and sheer will to survive throughout heavy repression. The bars that exist now almost seem to say ‘We will not go quietly’ on behalf of the queer community. “In the words of Audre Lorde,

Kimberly Tapscott-Munson Retired School Librarian Candidate for Fresno’s district 3 - covering the areas of downtown, Chinatown, southwest Fresno. *These candidates were absent during the District 3 Candidate Forum held on 4/19. Some questions were re-purposed for this Q&A to give each candidate an opportunity to respond. The original broadcast can be seen on CMAC’s website: FF: Tell us about yourself and your platform. KM: My passion is to help District 3 build and reach its fullest potential. District 3 has been a disinvested community for more than 40 years. I am concerned with the disconnection with our homeless citizens. We need job training and mentoring programs for our youth to help with gang reduction. We have several needs in District 3; we need retail stores and neighborhood parks, green spaces for our kids. We need an advocate for our Senior Citizens, safer communities, gang reduction, youth mentoring and training. We need to improve our five schools in District 3. And most of all, affordable housing. “Should the city fund legal services for the undocumented and how would you address the needs of undocumented residents including DREAMERS?” (popular question posed by the public) KM: Yes, I believe that DREAMERS should be supported and a pathway to citizenship should be created for them. We are a country of immigrants, it shouldn’t matter

the circumstance of their arrival, they are American Citizens and as such, due all of the same rights and privileges. “Council recently passed the Caglia Industrial Park in the south end of District 3, do you agree with that decision? How would you balance the needs of bringing jobs to the city and district and the environmental quality for the neighbors who live there?” (David Taub - GV Wire) KM: I have attended community meetings held at Orange Elementary School and the diesel ports are less than 500 feet from the playground. This is supposed to be illegal. Yet, none of the parents have been notified of this. At the time of the community meeting there had been no documentation translated into Spanish and sent to the parents of the children who are enrolled there. Although, the Mayor of Fresno gave Amazon & Ultra a $30,000,000.00 tax incentive. There were no incentives given to the community, such as a percentile guaranteed local hire from the community. Our air pollution is the 5th worst in the state. Which is why the TCC allocated $70,000,000.00. to our community for green energy improvements. “What are your thoughts on improving the school districts? While the two entities are separate, without good schools, everyone’s property values plummet. What will you do to build a positive working relationship with the school district?” (Genevieve Hinojos-Spalding, Fresno’s Leading Young Professionals) KM: I am a Retired School Librarian, with 20 years of services to Fresno Unified School District. And I have firsthand knowledge of the reading levels of our children and they are below grade reading levels especially with our minority students. There, is a lot of work that needs to be done to improve our dropout rates. While studying for my BA in Liberal Arts, which I obtained at Fresno Pacific University, it became apparent that through education we can uplift our community. FF: Do you have any working relationships with the current, returning incumbent council members? KM: I have met with Council member Oliver Baines, and we have a good working relationship. We also worked together on the TCC Project where I was a voting member and one of the original six who created Project #5 which was unanimously voted to approve an award of $70,000,000.00 towards community improvements to South West Fresno, Chinatown, and downtown. I have been a community liaison in District 3 for the past ten years, since the purchase of my home, in District 3. I believe in code enforcement.

after-school activities and programs to attract pupils and students. 3. Affordable Housing: I am seeking to roll back and undo the current housing measures and policies pursued and implemented by the City. They have caused the unintended consequences of driving up the housing cost, displacing the low-income families, worsening the homeless situation as well as allowing the big property companies to step in to monopolize the housing market to the detrimental and deprivation of the momand-pop property owners. 4. Neighborhood Prosperity: I will strive to work with city agencies, community leaders, and grassroots District 3 residents to destigmatize the long-held negative images of District 3. I’ll also work to enhance its appeals to be more business- and investmentfriendly by encouraging business start-ups, streamlining the permitting process, relaxing the city regulations and restrictions. “Should the city fund legal services for the undocumented and how would you address the needs of undocumented residents including DREAMERS?” (popular question posed by the public)

Sean Sanchez Business Owner/Broker Candidate for Fresno’s district 3 - covering the areas of downtown, Chinatown, southwest Fresno. FF: Tell us about yourself and your platform. My unique life experience sets me apart from other candidates. I have been on both sides of the tracks. My mother passed away when I was only three months old. Growing up with an absentee father who wasn’t around most of my childhood, I had been bounced around amongst 20+ foster homes. I had worked in the fields picking onions since I was only six years old. When I attended Fresno City College, I became involved with student government and was elected the student senator and later, the student trustee for the State Center Community College District. After graduating from Fresno State with a bachelor’s degree majoring in Finance in the 90’s, I started my real estate and mortgage business to help people, for the past 20 + years, to achieve their American dreams of becoming homeowners, many residing in District 3. My platform could be easily summarized and distilled with my first name: S.E.A.N., to be more specific: 1.Safety: I am proposing some new ideas that would help our community with more efficient and effective policing, such as integrating LiveView with ShotSpotter. Deterring and reducing gun violence is a top concern for the people of District 3 2. Educational Opportunities: As your councilman, I would work with the school, church and youth organizations to develop


No, it shouldn’t. Immigration is a federal matter. Any immigration-related issues should be ultimately resolved and adjudicated among the three branches of the federal government. Due to its budgetary constraints and city charter restrictions, City of Fresno shouldn’t be all things for all people, nor stick its nose where it doesn’t belong. If there are any local matters and concerns brought forward by the undocumented residents including Dreamers in front of any of the city agencies, the city should treat them and handle their problems with the same compassion, respect, and evenhandedness as it would afford its citizens and lawful residents. “Council recently passed the Caglia Industrial Park in the south end of District 3, do you agree with that decision? How would you balance the needs of bringing jobs to the city and district and the environmental quality for the neighbors who live there?” (David Taub - GV Wire) By and large, I am all for economic growth, business investment and job creation. However, my opinion over the passage of Caglia Industrial Park would be a “No until and unless…” For now, because I think the study over its potential economic and environmental impacts, including tangible economic benefits to the people of District 3 as well as pollutions, noise and traffic factors might be a bit rushed and not quite well thought out. In a rush to welcome large corporations into District 3 to set up shops, the council might not have extracted, during the process, the best deals possible for the people of District 3 and the City of Fresno at large, and might have given away the

Alternative Principles By Will Freeney |

“So we can all have a life of dignity.” This quote from my conversation with Gloria La Riva seems to aptly summarize her underlying motivation for a life of activism and her candidacy for Governor of California in 2018. Ms. La Riva was gracious and generous enough to take time from preparation for a candidate forum on Saturday (5/12) here in Fresno and for an appearance in the Bay Area this evening (5/10) to grant me an extended, largely freeform conversation. Candidates are compelled by the economic necessities of the campaign process – gaining the most votes with the fewest words to create the least potential negative feedback. Ms. La Riva, however, spoke at length about her background, her life story, and her philosophy, and her intentions for occupancy of the office of Governor. When asked what her priorities were in this election campaign, she quickly replied “Housing,” and went on to lay the blame for much of California’s housing crisis – from high rental rates and high mortgage rates to homelessness – at the feet of two pieces of California legislation from the 1990s: the Costa-Hawkins Act and the

Ellis Act. Costa-Hawkins essentially pulled the plug on rent control and Ellis facilitated eviction of renters for property owners who wanted to sell the property for profit (or resume renting it for much higher rental rates a few years later). From that point on, rents have soared. Ms. La Riva, who lives and works in San Francisco’s Mission District, has experienced this firsthand and seen the ongoing construction of highrises on the virtual graves of affordable housing, from which working class tenants were evicted. She mentioned that there is a ballot initiative on its way to the November ballot that would overturn Costa-Hawkins and Ellis, paving the way for genuinely affordable housing. Another historical component of the housing crisis was the elimination by President Ronald Reagan of many of the federal housing subsidies. Ms. La Riva grew up in Albuquerque, New Mexico, the daughter of a Mexican mother who immigrated in 1952 and worked as a waitress and seamstress, and a Mexican-American father who worked as a letter carrier. During her childhood with five siblings, the family experienced eviction twice. She did well in school but knew her

elaine would be the first female Governor of California, but being the first female elected to a state office would not be a new experience for her, as she was the Superintendent of Public Instruction for California from 1995 to 2003, subsequent to her tenure as a member of the State Assembly from 1986 to 1994. Prior to her tenures as an elected state official, she served as a member of the Union City Council, where she chaired the Education Committee for 5 of the 6 years she served on the city council. So, it should be no surprise that Delaine Eastin set her number one priority for California as education. Her understanding of the importance of education comes from personal experience. Her family moved from San Diego, where her father had been in the Navy, to San Francisco, which was her mother’s homeland – placing a young Delaine in a 44-student classroom in San Francisco. The family subsequently moved to San Carlos, where her class consisted of 20 students, and her educational experience drastically improved. Although she came from a working class family, her parents

were able to make the necessary economic adjustments to pay for her college education. What ensued was a remarkable career of public service as well as private employment. After leaving office from the Superintendency, Delaine eventually became a professor at Mills College. Education, as Ms. Eastin details, is not just a personal penchant. She has cited studies that show that “the steepest curve for learning is from [age] 0 to 5.” While she was an Assembly member, the legislature passed legislation that would have made kindergarten mandatory in the state, but the governor at the time vetoed it. It is her intention to see the implementation of mandatory kindergarten, and to “fight for children’s education from pre-school through grad school.” That fight for educational improvement includes funding because, as she said, “you invest in education or you invest in incarceration.” Investment should be extended to librarians and infrastructure in terms of technology, she insists. Money for that investment would come in part through a reform of Prop 13. Ms. Eastin is not, by any means,


parents could not afford to send her to college. Someone suggested she apply to Brandeis because of their generous scholarship programs. Once at Brandeis, she attended a May Day demonstration in New York City, and she said, “It was then and there that I became a Socialist.” What is the underlying meaning of that? “Workers should benefit from their labor,” she said, going on to elaborate, “Teachers, who are creating our future … construction workers who are building our homes, can become homeless if they are unable to work. Everything you touch is made by tens of thousands of workers – growing, harvesting, manufacturing, shipping, and selling that thing. Yet owners have dictatorial power [to set low wages, deny insurance coverage, etc.]. The working class should run everything.” Ms. La Riva’s second priority, not far behind housing, is health care. She advocates a Single Payer system and would work as governor to see that through the legislature to enactment. “Health insurance companies should be illegal. They do not provide a service.” Furthermore, they contribute to the denial of necessary medical services to those who need them, while inflating the prices of everything involved in health care. On one of the other hot topics of

running on a one-plank platform, however. Her other goals include “ban[ning[ fracking” because Californians “have a right to clean air and clean water.” Her commitment to the environment and its protection is much broader than that, though. Regarding the Twin Tunnels project, she suggests we should “step back and do it right” through replenishing the aquifers that would receive that water diversion. Similarly, she is opposed to the current vision for and implementation of the High Speed Rail project, citing its unfunded costs and eventual availability (in terms of fare cost and route location) only for the rich. Her intended principle for mass transit is that if the people want it, let them fund it – through incremental sales tax propositions at the local level, like those that created all of the existing light rail systems in California (in place in all but one of the Bay Area counties). Regarding all government actions in the realm of infrastructure, Ms. Eastin has stressed the importance of long term planning, mentioning that the last water plan was written in 1957. For a full list of Ms. Eastin’s plans for California, visit her web-

school districts? While the two entities are separate, without good schools, everyone’s property values plummet. What will you do to build a positive working relationship with the school district?” (Genevieve Hinojos-Spalding, Fresno’s Leading Young Professionals) Good schools enhance the property values of the surrounding neighborhoods. Conversely, safe, healthy, and vibrant neighborhoods demand and will eventually lead to better schools. It is a symbiotic relationship. The city council could do its part, through the allocation of the city’s budgetary resources, to foster and achieve an overall conducive environment, safer neighborhoods as well as infrastructure improvements. The city could also work with the school district to try to crack down on its truancy problems, make sure our children stay in school being educated as well as participate in afterschool activities, and stay away from the bad influences. FF: How do you feel your current occupation will contribute to your ability to fulfill the duties of City Council member? I believe I am among the very few candidates for District 3 who hail from the private sector, having started businesses and created jobs. I am confident to say that I am the only candidate who actually put his life savings on


the line to invest in the community, having offered affordable housing to many lowincome working people, single mothers with children and senior citizens surviving on their meager social security incomes. I also have worked with the government agencies to take many homeless people off the streets and provide them with permanent housing environment. As a commercial property owner, I have revitalized a few blighted city street corners and worked with minority business owners to open businesses there. I am the doer! FF: Do you have any working relationships with the current, returning incumbent council members? In the past, I had worked, as a taxpaying business and property owner, with Councilman Clint Olivier. He’s one of the good guys, and I am sad to see that he is terming out but wish him every success in his future endeavors. FF: What other experience or training do you have that would assist you in fulfilling the duties of city council member?

... ‘Alternative’ cont’d from pg 7 do list for governorship. She said she would use the office of Governor as a bully pulpit to advocate for true prison reform – meaning the use of prison prevention programs and rehabilitation, the elimination of prison privatization, the cessation of indeterminate sentences and isolation units, and the restoration of the GED program for prisoners. She mentioned that the governor’s budgetary oversight would give her the leverage to see these reforms implemented as well. Prisoner pay was another element of prison reform on that agenda. Currently inmates are used as firefighters, paid only $1 per hour for those services, and end up unable to gain employment as a firefighter despite their wealth of experience, because of their criminal record. Both the egregiously low pay and the ability of prospective employers to interrogate their prospective employees’ criminal record are issues that Ms. La Riva intends to address. When asked why she has continued to run for office for over thirty years, without a victory to date, she replied, “I was elected to union office for the Typographical Union. I let them know from the start that I was a Socialist, and they re-elected me. I served them for several years.” As to political office, she said her goal is “to empower people. It is untenable to continue this way, with the obscene enrichment at the top. More people are seeing why – the contrast between [the 1% and the 99%], Knowledge is power.”
