MC Hammer, Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom and Accidental Bear Join ‘Hands Across California’

by Accidental Bear

Ok, who’s got our back? I didn’t hear you, LOUDER, Accidental Bear is there for your local reporting. With my super human instincts, my knee’s ache and ears twitch, telling me, there’s a story needing coverage. Next I need to come up with a super hero outfit. Any suggestions? This  afternoon involved surreal circles of hand holding with Lt. Gavin Newsom and Mc Hammer.

Yo, sound the bell, school is in, sucka. Can’t touch this, unless you’re holding my hand in order to support community colleges.

Yeah, it doesn’t really flow, so MC Hammer probably won’t be changing the lyrics to his famous song. But in an unlikely partnership, the super dope homeboy from Oak Town and San Francisco’s own Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom will be holding a joint press conference at City College of San Francisco’s main campus at 3 p.m. Thursday in order to support the “Hands Across California” event later this month.

The event is a fundraiser for the community college system, which has seen drastic cuts in funding during the state’s recent budget crisis, and has been forced to increase the rates it charges students. The event is an attempt to raise funds for the public schools, and attempt to create a human line stretching down the state.

The hand-holding event will take place on April 17 at 2 p.m. Hammer pants and fresh new kicks are not required.

Dufty for SF Mayor!

by Accidental Bear

Bevan Dufty has what it takes to run our beloved city, and run it well. Of course he has my gay vote but that alone doesn’t get my final vote. He is very accessible , a good guy in front of and out of the eye of the media. Best of all he makes decisions based on everyone in SF, gay or straight. And on a side not, he’s one heck of a cute dad. Big brownie points and extremely telling to me. Dufty for Mayor!


Victory Fund: Dufty for SF Mayor

By Editors


Bevan Dufty‘s mayoral aspirations were recently in trouble, but an endorsement from the Victory Fund may help the former city supervisor became San Francisco’s first openly gay mayor.

The Victory Fund, which works to elect LGBT candidates to higher office like Houston Mayor Annise Parker, recently announced their endorsement of Dufty for mayor of San Francisco. Edwin Lee, the current mayor, is serving out the rest of Gavin Newsom‘s term, as he was elected last year as California’s lieutenant governor. A mayoral election will take place in November and Lee will not be one of the people running.
