Seals Stadium Jacket 01 selectism Golden Bear for Unionmade Seals Stadium Jacket

Unionmade’s Seals Stadium jacket, manufactured by SF locals Golden Bear, draws its name from the minor league baseball team that played at 16th Street and Portrero Avenue from 1931 through 1959. The San Francisco Seals, of the Pacific Coast League, are inspiration for the garment, which features a traditional snap button closure and 100% cotton shell. A solid choice for evenings at the ballpark, or for just kicking about when the evening temperatures dip. (Selectism)

Andrew Johnson, Gay Prison Guard, Barred From Wearing Uniform in WeHo Pride Parade by Homophobic Dept. of Corrections

by Accidental Bear

I have often wondered while at a gay pride, street fair or parade in SF if there are any regulations about wearing official uniforms while off duty as costumes. I mean, (coughs) I have been around the block a few times and have been felt up, flogged and had my boots shined by men in uniform. Basically anything you can think of on this side of legal. It was all for fun and games, I never asked for identification for legitimacy of costume. Good luck regulating this one California Department of Corrections. You have obviously never been to a gay pride parade and see the way you are emulated. ~AB

​We at the Weekly usually beef with the California Department of Corrections on more budget-related issues like the rich, powerful prison-guard union’s ability to twist the state Legislature to its will and preserve bloated benefit packages in a time of fiscal crisis.

 But on a more basic human-rights note, prison guard Andrew Johnson reveals today that the department has a raging case of homophobia, to boot. Johnson claims he was denied permission to march in this Sunday’s West Hollywood gay pride parade (so stoked) while wearing his really quite fabulous CDCR uniform.

Gloria Allred to the rescue!

SF is Preparing for its Next King or Queen (Mayor)

by Accidental Bear

Running for the mayoral seat in San Francisco is one spicy meatball! We are no ordinary city and have extraordinary population to please. The rest of the world watches SF under a microscope to see what boundaries we are pushing and history we are re-writing. Good luck to you all in the race. On your mark, get set, GOOOOOOOOOOOO…  Bevan I got your back~AB

LGBT themes emerge at first mayoral forum

via B.A.R

The theme of the first candidate forum in this year’s San Francisco mayoral race was public service, but that didn’t deter the nine leading candidates who took part from peppering their responses with references to LGBT concerns.

Taking the stage together for the first time, the seven men and two women running to be San Francisco’s next mayor spent 90 minutes Thursday, May 5 pitching themselves to a packed house of college students and residents gathered inside the McLaren Conference Center at the University of San Francisco, whose Leo T. McCarthy Center for Public Service and the Common Good teamed up with the group buildOn to host the forum.

While none of the questions spoke directly about LGBT issues, several candidates’ remarks included not so subtle pitches to the city’s LGBT voters for their support.

One of the most blatant references came from District 11 Supervisor John Avalos, who in his closing statement stole a famous line that the late gay Supervisor Harvey Milk used on the campaign trail back in the 1970s.

“I am John Avalos. I am a community builder and a community organizer. I want to recruit you to help rebuild San Francisco to make it a city that works better for all of us,” said Avalos, incorporating Milk’s “I am here to recruit you” riff on the anti-gay belief that homosexuals recruit youth to replenish their ranks.

ABOUT THIS PROJECT:

Combining the best soundbites from Science Fiction with choreography dictated by the specific experiences of a civilian space voyage, Inbred Hybrid Collective will boldly go where no artist has gone before. Using a lifetime of experiences tailored to this event, including classical ballet training, vocal and speech lessons, and countless hours immersed in the worlds of Gene Roddenberry, George Lucas, HR Giger, Jules Verne (to name but a few), a zero gravity manned flight will become an expression of the finest pursuits of the human mind: creativity and experimentation. With the fruition of this dream, the final frontier will provide one small dance step for man, and one giant leap for artist-kind. It is the earnest hope of Inbred Hybrid Collective that the realization of this endeavor will inspire future generations of young artists to continue reaching for the stars in both a literal and a metaphorical sense, and to never stop turning the advantages afforded by science into an ever-expanding canvas of opportunity.

Project location: Queens, NY
