Local priest-guy Salvatore “Big Sally” Cordileone who was recently called up by by capo di tutti capi Ratzinger to take over the San Francisco family after his fine work kneecapping the gheys when they tried to muscle their way into a piece of the California marriage racket, was down in San Diego this weekend, uh, partying. As in DUI partying.

On the Feast day of St. Francis, the Archdiocese of San Francisco will officially receive its new archbishop: Salvatore Cordileone. Between now and then, things will be very interesting for Catholics on both sides of the San Francisco Bay. Cordileone headed the Catholic church’s efforts to oppose marriage equality and pass Prop 8, for which he was elevated to become Bishop of Oakland and head of the USCCB’s anti-marriage equality programs nationally.
And now he’s going to be Nancy Pelosi’s new bishop.
Nancy may want to take communion often before October 4th. Something tells me she may have difficulty with that once Cordileone arrives on her side of the Bay.

This was an important LGBT year in so many ways: one interesting way was at the Stonewall Rally we raised San Diego’s new monument to lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) community and LGBT community civil rights: a large rainbow flag was permanently raised on Normal Street. Perhaps it’s incredibly fitting that the flag pole is situated on Normal Street in between Harvey Milk Street and University Avenue — perhaps a fitting commentary on normality of LGBT people, LGBT activism, and the legitimate academic importance of queer studies.
In my speech at the rally, I called on community activism towards open service for transgender servicemembers.

Occupy San Diego has started. The nascent group had planned to occupy the Civic Center Plaza in downtown San Diego, adjacent to San Diego City Hall, starting on October 7, 2011. But there was one hitch: A huge Yom Kippur service had been scheduled for that night in the same location. Rabbis asked Occupy to kindly accommodate the worshipers, which they did. The result, an even more effective march and event, with massive good will.

Making history, 200 LGBT servicemembers — reserve, active duty, and veterans alike — marched openly in the San Diego Pride Parade yesterday. This marks the first time in America a contingent of serving military members participated openly in a gay pride event.
As you can see in the video, the Honoring Servicemembers contingent of 200 military men and women from all branches of the US military received almost universal approval and recognition from the crowd of San Diegans out on yet another lovely parade day (one does wonder why San Diego doesn’t simply have parades every single day, looking at that weather).
