LGBT Center Wants Its Community Treated Like Everyone Else -- Until It Doesn't

We love us some lesbians, gays, bisexuals, and transgenders, and hope their center can pull it together (if you missed it, San Francisco's LGBT Community Center is asking the city for a cool million-dollar bailout). But isn't it a little ironic that a community center for people who have been fighting all their lives to be treated equally now wants special consideration?

Says the Chron: "If approved by the Board of Supervisors and the mayor, the bailout would

be the first time the city has used its general fund to guarantee

mortgage payments on behalf of a nonprofit, according to the budget

analyst's report."

Mayor Gavin Newsom doesn't sound so stoked on preferential treatment, although the Board of Supes wants to think it over. What do you think?

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
