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

JERSEY’S JOURNAL by Jersey Shore

I find it hard to trust ANYONE these

days. Sure, I nod my head, pretending

it’s all good, but in reality I think

you are full of shit. Some people lie

about stupid small things, while others

lie big.

They lie to make themselves look

better. What is wrong with the truth?

It is the truth, isn’t it? Most people

use lying to take-down your socalled

competition. I said it before.

Compete with yourself and you’ll go

further, but you know what’s best,

personal self-destruction. I will

continue to concentrate on myself.

When I am happy, life is amazing.

My life soars without the repetitive

drama. You can walk outside and

you smile just by the ray of sunshine

engorging your vessel. That sounded

a little dirty, but you knew what you

got into when you started reading

this.

Could it be that people don’t appreciate

the small things? Does life really

have to be “go big or go home”?

It sounds like a night on Arenas,

but how long before they go home?

Small things can fulfill big holes. You

remember right? A lot of small gifts

can be more enjoyable than one big

gut filling, single opportunity. Small

isn’t always a bad thing. There are a

lot of small things that I appreciate.

Small thing can and will lead into

larger things. As a precautionary

tale, please remember that greed

always backfires, so why not enjoy

the bounty of the free and small, but

generous and ample gifts?

Peace, Love, and appreciation,

Jersey

Jersey can be seen performing:

Souren Mousavi - ARTIST IN EXILE

Souren Mousavi was born in Iran in 1969.

Her family ancestry is linked to the Persian

Monarchy.

“Soft Grey” erotic female figure in acrylic

During her childhood she was in the midst

of the Iran-Iraq war, which left a lasting

impact on her life.

We had the pleasure of meeting Souren at

the Indian Wells Art Fair, where her work

was being displayed. It was immediately evident

that she is a person of determination

and passion as she described her work. She

explained that it was her art and her activism

for women’s rights that was the

reason of her exile from Iran. She

graduated from the University of

Tehran with a masters in art. While

attending the University she became

an activist for women’s rights.

She was beginning a promising

career as an artist and graphic designer.

Her art was an expression of

her feelings toward freedom and a

commitment for women’s rights. It

was considered offensive by the respressive

regime for which she was

imprisoned for several dark years of

her early life.

Directly quoting Souren, “the depiction

of the female body evoking,

strength, profanity, regeneration,

and innocence” is found in the

colors, composition, design and

subjects of all of her works.

After find a method to leave the

Iranian prison and immigrate to

England she began to establish herself

as an artist and designer. This

is where we found her at the Indian

Wells Art Fair, displaying and discussion

her work.

Watercolors, acrylic, and oil paintings,along

with drawings, comprise the media of her

art. In her words, “ they evoke recurring

images celebrating the power and dignity of

the female form.... There are reflections of

emotions in the shapes and figures that live

and play.... Each work reveals a compelling

journey of mind, body, and spirit, attempting

to find peace and independence.”

Mind-blowing custom LED visuals spring

to life from every angle. Meanwhile, a

non-stop flow of amazing entertainment

and performers keep you captivated

throughout the night.

Direct from Tel Aviv, International Mega-

DJ/Producer OFFER NISSIM returns to

the desert to headline White Party’s main

event and lead an incredible DJ line up

including Dani Toro and Nacho Chapado.

From the clubs of Tel Aviv, to the top of the

charts, Offer Nissim is a force to be reckoned

with. As a producer, he consistently

delivers top-selling remixes for superstars

such Beyoncé, Madonna, Jennifer Lopez

and Deborah Cox. As a DJ, his live performances

are a spectacle to behold.

On Sunday, it’s time to converge under the

desert sky for an afternoon of pure magic

at SUNSET T-DANCE. Warm breezes and

hot bodies fill the dance floor at White

Party Park with music by DJs Grind and

Ralphi Rosario while you soar to new

heights on the world-famous White Party

Ferris Wheel.

This year, we crown dance diva and newest

“Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star

Erika Jayne “Queen of White Party,” where

she will celebrate her coronation with a

crowd stopping performance.

And, as the sun sets against the mountains,

and more artists take center stage,

the excitement will climax with the desert’s

largest choreographed fireworks display, set

to an exclusive remix from DJ Grind and

Toy Armada.

The weekend concludes at the CLOSING

PARTY 10pm to 7am back at the Renaissance

Hotel. To keep the night pumping

and energized, we’re flying in DJ sensations

Sagi Kariv (Tel Aviv) and Danny Verde

(Milan) together for the first time anywhere.

The Desert Rose Playhouse

Presents New Musical JUNK

Rancho Mirage, CA - The Desert Rose

Playhouse, the Valley’s LGBT stage company,

will the World Premiere of a new

musical JUNK by Michael Penny, opening

Friday, April 29, 2016 for a five-week run.

Performances are Fridays and Saturdays

at 8:00 PM and Sundays at 2 PM, through

May 29, 2016.

JUNK is about two gay men, one younger,

one older. They have been offered the

contents of the North Carolina cabin of

a recently deceased man in exchange for

cleaning it up so that the house might be

put on the market. It turns out that this

house is stuffed from attic to cellar with the

man’s massive collection of old porn...and

very little else. But as the two sort through

this man’s belongings... something of his

character begins to emerge... and in turn,

something of their own characters as well...

their unusual relationship to one another...

and what it means to be an individual. A

delightfully funny and touching look at a

gay generation gap with book, music and

lyrics by a bright voice in LGBT Musical

Theatre!

Features Jim Strait and Robbie Wayne and

is directed by Steve Fisher. Joel Baker is

Musical Director and Accompanist. Tom

Valach designs the set, and Phil Murphy is

the Lighting Designer.

THAT IS FUNNY

What did the Bartender say when two jumper cables walk into a bar. “You guys better not start anything

in here.”

What does a termite say when he walks into a bar? “Is the bar tender here?”

Infinitely many mathematicians walk into a bar. The first says, “I’ll have a beer.” The second says, “I’ll have

half a beer.” The third says, “I’ll have a quarter of a beer.” Before anyone else can speak, the barman fills

up exactly two glasses of beer and serves them. “Come on, now,” he says to the group, “You guys have got to

learn your limits.”

A panda walks into a bar and gobbles some beer nuts. Then he pulls out a gun, fires it in the air, and heads

for the door. “Hey!” shouts the bartender, but the panda yells back, “I’m a panda. Google me!” Sure enough,

panda: “A tree-climbing mammal with distinct black-and-white coloring. Eats shoots and leaves.”

WEEKLY GUIDE TO THE STARS

ARIES: March 21 - April 20

You discover that great minds

think alike-which comes as a

relief since you were beginning to

wonder if you were one of a kind.

TAURUS: April 21 - May 19

You’re investing too much energy

in what “feels” secure. Do the

math and you will discover things

to add peace of mind.

GEMINI: May 20 - June 21

The more you get to know someone,

the more you realize that

this person’s a basket case.

CANCER: June 22 - July 22

Just when you thought it was safe

to open up, you’re reminded of

why you keep your feelings to

yourself. You can still be guarded

and cautiously optimistic.

LEO: July 23 - August 22

A casual remark leaves you wondering

if someone knows more

than they let on. But don’t worry.

It was just a lucky guess.

VIRGO: August 23 - Sept. 22

That crisis in the making looks

like it won’t materialize after all.

Either it turns out to be a false

alarm or the dogs will be called

off last minute.

LIBRA: Sept. 23 - October 22

There are so many changes going

on in the lives of your nearest and

dearest that it’s hard to keep up.

So don’t.

SCORPIO: October 23 - Nov. 21

An attraction isn’t what you had

in mind, but check it out. You

might like it.

SAGITTARIUS: Nov. 22 - Dec. 20

An unexpected change in travel

plans leads you to discover something

you’ve been looking for that

you didn’t even realize.

CAPRICORN: Dec. 21 - Jan. 19

You’re entering into a creative

period that could prove quite lucrative,

but you have to lead with

imagination.

AQUARIUS: Jan 20 - Feb. 18

Put the finishing touches on a

pitch or proposal and send it on

its way. If you want success, you

need to strike while the iron’s hot!

PISCES: Feb 19 - March 20

Just because a friend didn’t mean

to hurt your feelings doesn’t

excuse what happened. You still

deserve an apology.

THE LAST WORD by Greg Pettis

Greetings from Erode, India! I have been

traveling the past week with another 10 days

to go to Southeast India. Myself and two nongay

couples are representing the Rotary Clubs

of Riverside and San Bernardino County. In

May, 6 couples from India will travel to our

area.

To think India as we saw in “The Best Exotic

Marigold Hotel” is to not really see India.

It is a vast country of wealth and poverty,

knowledge and illiteracy, great promise and

yet caught in a desire to change but keep their

culture.

Pollution is extreme in the southeast where we

are. Trash, debris, waste in rivers and streams.

Garbage is still burned on the side of the road.

The government is making strides to change

and groups like Rotary are educating folks on

recycling and reuse and eliminating single use

plastic bags, but it will take a generation to

fully see results.

The sights, smells and tastes can be overwhelming

and powerful but entice you to go

further. The people are warm and friendly.

Children are inquisitive and want to know

your name and all about you. Our group is

staying in people’s homes and their generosity

with what they have is stunning. The food is

beyond words.

Families have dogs for pets but we have been

advised not to pet due to fear of rabies, yet we

are encouraged to play with the local cow. It

is an amazing country.

Homosexuality is illegal in India and gay web

sights are banned, though access to apps like

Grindr is available. I, of course, as a single

Greg Pettis is a 22 year city councilman in Cathedral City.

He has made his name in governmental circles as an

expert in transportation issues and is very active in working

on bringing passenger rail service to the COACHELLA

Valley. Greg was the first openly gay elected city council

members In Riverside County. He has served on the

boards of the National League of Cities and the League of

California Cities and as President of the Southern CA Asso-

FREE ON LINE desertdailyguide.com and ciation Facebook.com/desertdailyguide

of Governments.

Gay man in the Coachella Valley, would never

have use of such apps (cough, cough) I was

amazed at how my in-box exploded upon

opening it here.

Of course, Indians are looking for sex, but

they are craving communication with other

Gay men. They want to know about our life,

our relationships, how marriage works in a

male to male setting and more. Things we

take for granted, but if we think about it, just

short years ago we were struggling for our

basic rights. Men do hold hands here, but as

a sign of friendship, not romantic. However,

you can see the furtive glances, the blush in a

cheek when you smile just so. One thing I do

appreciate in chatting with these young men

is that instead of calling me Daddy and all

that implies, they call me Uncle. Still a sign of

respect, but doesn’t quite make me feel ready

for the walker.

It would do us good in our cocoon of Palm

Springs to look outside and see how we might

help our brothers and sisters elsewhere. In

this election year we need to be asking our

candidates for President how their foreign

policy will work for LGBT rights, not just in
