George Zander, a longtime LGBT

rights activist in Palm Springs

AREA, Celebration Of Life to be

held march 20

George Zander and his husband, Chris,

were attacked in a hate crime in early

November. Zander’s death has deeply saddened

this community and has left a large

hole in local activism. Suspects Keith Terranova,

35, and James Carr, 30, are charged

with elder abuse and felony hate crimes.

One could find George working for all of

us every week, at the street fair booth, at

his office or with the LGBT Center booths,

parties and events. He wrote weekly articles,

spoke at LGBT events and organized

the hell out of us. He was one of a number

of often thanked people in this town that

worked quietly but tirelessly on our behalf.

Around the nation reports about George

Zander as a veteran political activist, most

recently as a field organizer for statewide

LGBT rights group Equality California. But

he was a partner in our lives, a rare commodity

these days.

Those that worked with George came to

respect his work for Equality California in

2009, he brought such talent and energy to

his work to help advance marriage equality,

ensure healthcare and provide a safer

environment for LGBT students. Dignitaries

such as Former Equality California

executive director Geoff Kors, who is now

a Palm Springs City Council member, and

activist Cleve Jones also expressed shock

and grief. As reported in the local papers

Andy Linsky Human Rights Campaign

board member and Palm Springs resident,

who worked with Zander on various issues,

said Zander’s contribution to the LGBT

community in Palm Springs and beyond is

everlasting. Tom Swann, president of the

Riverside County Veterans for Peace, and

one of the founding members of Desert

Stonewall Democrats, recalled meeting

Zander in 1998. Zander assisted Swann

with drafting a resolution that ultimately

allowed gay veterans to march in the

Palm Springs Veterans parade for the first

time on Nov. 11, 1999. I am proud to say I

march with Tom Swann nearly every year.

For us here at the local LGBT press, George

Zander chose DDG to write a weekly political

activist column, because all the others

insist on censoring everything, he once told

us. We are small he said but a powerful

rainmaker for social justice. Zander also

helped us produce many political events,

including LGBT candidate forums I was

told would never happen. We had nearly

perfect attendance for all candidates and

has became a great model for future LGBT

political activism. Will Paige

Seeking Participants for UCLA Research Study

on Long-Term Care

What is the purpose of the research? To learn about...

1. experiences between gay and lesbian (or non- heterosexual) older

adults and long-term care providers and

2. ideas about how long-term care providers can be responsive to lesbian

and gay older people.

Who can participate? Men who are at least 50 years old, have had

contact with long-term care providers, and EITHER:

• Identify as gay, OR BOTH

• have had only male sex partners over the past 20 years

• are only attracted to men

What does participation involve? If you volunteer for this study you will

be asked to participate in a one-on-one interview in which you will answer

questions about your experience of long-term care providers and ideas

about what it means for long-term care providers to be responsive to

lesbian and gay older adults. You will also be asked to provide feedback on

the researcher’s analysis at a later date. You will be able to withdraw from

the study at any time with no penalty. Each participant will receive $40. You

do NOT need to travel to UCLA to participate.

For More Information Contact Lila Jihanian (UCLA Department of

Social Welfare) at (626)203-2844 or ljihanian@ucla.edu

IMPORTANT CHANGES

Sanders’ win in Michigan was largely due

to “open” style of primary that they hold.

Independent voters in Michigan are allowed

to participate in ‘Open” primaries.

California is now an open primary. California

voters will see a different looking ballot

when they head to the voting booths this June

5. They will be voting in an open primary for

the first time, which means Democrats can

vote for Republicans and Republicans can vote

for Democrats.

Tom Swann and Guillermo Hernandezn Wedding!

Congratulations from the DDG!

Even a marriage inside a federal immigration center did not dampen spirits of this

happy couple. But for the United States, it wsas the first same-sex marriage of someone

in detention awaiting a deportation hearing.

But Swann makes history all the time! For veterans, and the LGBT community. “This

is the happiest day of my life,” said Swann, 58, shortly after he wed Hernandez. “Happier

than the day I graduated boot camp in the Marine Corps.” Mr. Swann’s military

case was instrumental in securing protection against sexual orientation discrimination

for lesbian and gay civilian employees of the Armed Services. “Tom Swann’s book

is a how to succeed handbook, a standard operating procedure for gay activists taking

on the conservative establishment, whether it is in government or the private sector.

Served on the national AMVETS Diversity Committee, Tom founded Riverside County

Veterans for Peace and spoke at Camp Casey (Crawford, Texas) with Cindy Sheehan.

Dedicated the peace pole outside Cathedral City Library and at Desert Mirage

High School, Swann is founding chair of the only certified Democratic Party veterans’

caucus in America. Personally met every American President since Richard Nixon.

THAT IS FUNNY FUCKING

What is Donald Trump telling Barack Obama supporters? Orange Is The New Black.

Trump: “It’s not a toupee, I just found the Bush that Jeb lost.”

Why is Donald Trump always seen with Melania? Because all his other wives support

Hilary.

Donald Trump Campaign Slogans

“We Shall OverComb”

“No Amigos”

“Comb Over To The Dark Side”

“Don’t Be A Chump, Vote For Trump”

“Stump For Trump”

“Democrats, You’re Fired!”

“This country needs the D”

“Everybody Needs to Comb Down”

WEEKLY GUIDE TO THE STARS

ARIES March 20-April 18: You

can be guileless in the most winning

way. A simple remark from

you gets a standoffish type to

open up faster than others.

TAURUS April 19-May 19: Your

idea of what someone wants is

a far cry from this person’s real

aim. Expectations are lower than

you make them out to be.

GEMINI May 20-June 20: Did

you mishear or did someone misspeak?

The truth ends up being

simpler (and better) than what

you were led to believe.

CANCER June 21-July 21: You

can be immoveable when you

want to be so hunker down. Your

refusal to budge gets others to

change their position.

LEO July 22-Aug. 21: You want to

make people happy, but stick with

what you believe is right. They’ll

come around to accepting your

point of view.

VIRGO Aug. 22-Sept. 21:

Looking for common ground is

like trying to find a needle in a

haystack. Don’t wait on others.

Exercise a firmer hand in shaping

consensus.

LIBRA Sept. 22-Oct. 22: Remember

the story of the Emperor and

his new clothes? Don’t assume

that people don’t know things.

SCORPIO Oct. 23-Nov. 21: Being

in the right doesn’t feel very good

when you’re the only one who

knows it. Thank heavens you

thrive in the heat of controversy.

SAGITTARIUS Nov. 22-Dec. 20:

A simple plan becomes unnecessarily

complicated. Reintroduce

it again with the needed changes

and it will go through.

CAPRICORN Dec. 21-Jan. 18:

Forgiving a debt may not be the

worst thing. In fact it could come

around to benefit you one day.

AQUARIUS Jan. 19-Feb. 17:

Everyone knows that it’s your

idea but say that it’s a boss’s or

client’s instead. This person needs

the ego stroking more than you.

PISCES Feb. 18-March 19: Is

there such a thing as selling out

when everything nowadays is user-friendly?

Yes. The path of least

resistance always leads to a steep

cost if you’re not careful.

JERSEY’S JOURNAL by Jersey Shore

Are you particular about what you

put in your mouth? Or are you one of

those people that stick anything into

their mouths? I am not limiting this

question to one particular thought.

I know most of you are thinking

sex. I always do. Some thought of

boogers or inanimate object. Sure,

even though I have NEVER eaten a

booger. Not even as a kid. Gross.

With this thought I am referring to

the food you put in your mouth? Do

you eat healthy or does Mickey D’s

satisfy your needs as they kiss your

lips? I won’t let a few fast food chains

go thru my gullet.

I am as just as surprised as you are.

I am a foodie. I like food. I’m fat,

thin-ish, fat, try to lose, stocky.... I

was raised in a BIG house, so for me

to not let a couple of the fast food

companies pass my Eggplant colored

lips, then it must be given a second

thought. If it even looks like meat?

And a good piece of meat near your

lips isn’t a bad thing, but you should

look at before it enters. It could

make you sick. Even if the meat

isn’t digestible. It can still make you

sick. So, I guess this article is about

health.

The lesson for today is to be careful

of what you put in your mouth. It

can make you sick. The more you

know. Sarcasm is the one thing I

dish out for free. If you got paid for

sarcasm, I would be one rich S.O.B...

A little sarcasm in a good light never

hurt anyone, unless you are ultra-sensitive,

then you must chill out.

Life is easier when you chill out!

Peace, Love, and sarcasm,
