Stray Cat Theatre presents Mercury, November 24- December 9, 2017

No one’s happy, people stop being nice and blood spills in this mash up of violent myth and ideas about “good neighbors” to explore what happens when the mercury rises. See Mercury, directed by Ron May at the Tempe Center for the Arts.

NEARLY 2,000 CHRISTIANS SIGN STATEMENT SUPPORTING LGBT+ INCLUSION IN RESPONSE TO DIVISIVE “NASHVILLE STATEMENT”

Nearly 2,000 Christians from around the world had signed on to Christians United: A Statement In Support of LGBT+ Inclusion in the Church on Thursday morning, including more than 300 denominational leaders, theologians, and Christian influencers.

 

Christians United

 

San Diego, CA: Nearly 2,000 Christians from around the world had signed on to Christians United: A Statement In Support of LGBT+ Inclusion in the Church on Thursday morning, including more than 300 denominational leaders, theologians, and Christian influencers.

Christians United is an international theological statement bringing together thousands of LGBT+ affirming Christians to declare with one voice that the Church of Jesus Christ must be a place where LGBT+ people are celebrated and embraced. Christians United came as a direct response to The Nashville Statement, a document composed and signed by 150 major evangelical leaders in August 2017, which reaffirmed toxic, non-affirming theological commitments that have caused verifiable harm to countless LGBT+ people of faith around the world.

The statement was originally drafted by LGBT+ Christian activist and Nomad Partnerships Executive Director, Brandan Robertson and was edited by a distinguished editorial board including Dr. J. R. Daniel Kirk, Bishop Joseph Tolton, Rev. Steve Chalke, and Dr. Paula Williams.

Article 1 of the statement begins by declaring:

“WE AFFIRM that every human being is created in the image and likeness of God and that the great diversity expressed in humanity through our wide spectrum of unique sexualities and gender identities is a perfect reflection of the magnitude of God’s creative work.”

In the first twenty-four hours of it’s release, Christians United was signed on to by over 1,000 Christians from around the world, including top theologians and the leaders of some of the worlds most influential Christian denominations.

Christians United stands as a faithful witness that a new day is dawning in Christianity, a day in which the Church of Jesus Christ repents of its sin of exclusion, and swings open it’s doors to welcome all of God’s diverse children.

To see the full text of the statement, visit www.ChristiansUnitedStatement.org.

NGLCC Releases Historic "America’s LGBT Economy" Report

 
NGLCC Releases Historic
 “America’s LGBT Economy” Report,
Suggests LGBT Businesses Add
$1.7 Trillion to US Economy and
Create Tens of Thousands of Jobs Nationwide
 
National Gay & Lesbian Chamber of Commerce snapshot of
Certified LGBT Business Enterprises® (LGBTBEs) explores powerful economic contributions to America across all business sectors
The National Gay & Lesbian Chamber of Commerce (NGLCC), the business voice of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community, has released the first-ever snapshot demonstrating the economic and social impact of America’s LGBT business owners and entrepreneurs. The America’s LGBT Economy report explores the revenues, types, sizes and geography of LGBT-owned businesses currently certified by NGLCC, as well as the number of jobs they create and the personal narratives of successful LGBT business owners who reflect the very best about America’s innovative and entrepreneurial spirit.
 
NGLCC’s “America’s LGBT Economy” report can be viewed and downloaded at www.nglcc.org/report
 
Bob Witeck of certified LGBTBE Witeck Communications helped prepare this landmark report.  Witeck’s works has helped give voice to the LGBT community and our annual spending power. Now he has helped NGLCC produce the first look at our economic impact as a business community.
 
“The National Gay & Lesbian Chamber of Commerce is pleased to be able to evidence, through this report, what we’ve observed since our founding fifteen years ago — that America’s LGBT business owners are driving our economy upward and deserve every opportunity to keep creating jobs and innovating our industries. The estimated 1.4 million LGBT business owners NGLCC advocates for have truly earned a place at the equality table,” said NGLCC Co-Founder & President Justin Nelson. “If you are an LGBT business owner and not yet certified, you’re leaving opportunities on the table to help your business and our economy grow. For the LGBT community, this also means we are missing out on more accurate data, role models, job creator, and future success stories that prove ‘If you can buy it, a Certified LGBTBE can supply it.'”

“These numbers tell the real story,” said Bob Witeck, President of Witeck Communications, a certified LGBTBE that served as the analyst for this report. “While our community’s $917 billion spending power highlights our market clout, the jobs, tax revenues and profits we create as employers and entrepreneurs define our full economic value to America. We are just beginning to scratch the surface of our potential.”
 
“At NGLCC, we have nearly 200 corporate and government partners that understand not only the value of the LGBT dollar, but the economic imperative of inclusivity and LGBT visibility in their supply chains and marketplace. This groundbreaking report proves our NGLCC philosophy that economic visibility, just like social visibility, is essential in building a diverse and inclusive society,” said NGLCC Co-Founder & CEO Chance Mitchell.

THE PALM SPRINGS INTERNATIONAL FILM SOCIETY HOSTS BENEFIT SCREENING OF “DESERT MIGRATION”

clip_image001

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Palm Springs, CA (September 9, 2015) – The Palm Springs International Film Society will host a special screening of the documentary film Desert Migration to benefit the Desert AIDS Project (DAP) and the Palm Springs International Film Festival (PSIFF). The screening will take place on November 5, 2015 at 7:30 p.m. at the Camelot Theatre during Palm Springs Pride weekend.

From the film, director Daniel Cardone, producer Marc Smolowitz and the film’s subjects will attend a Q&A following the screening. Desert Migration was shot entirely in and around Palm Springs, featuring 13 gay men who moved to the city over the course of the last three decades to deal with their HIV+ status. But is this environment, with its tolerant population and constant sunshine, enough to eradicate the grief they carry within them, and strengthen them against the medications slowly poisoning their bodies? The film was an official selection at Frameline, LA OutFest, the Austin Gay & Lesbian international Film Festival, the Paris LGBT Film Festival and CinemaQ. 

“We’re delighted to be showcasing this accomplished documentary, which garnered wide acclaim at its recent Frameline and LA OutFest screenings, and to be hosting the filmmakers and cast members  who created it for a special event to benefit the Desert Aids Project and the Palm Springs International Film Festival,” said Festival Director Darryl Macdonald. “This engrossing film has a special resonance here in the desert, where the entire film was shot and where each of the men whose story it encompasses now calls Palm Springs their home.”

Tickets are $15 and can be purchased starting on September 8 at www.psfilmfest.org or by phone at 760 778 8979. Proceeds will go to Desert AIDS Project and the Palm Springs International Film Festival.

Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights Applauds Marriage Equality Decision

WASHINGTON – Wade Henderson, president and CEO of The Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights, issued the following statement in response to today’s U.S. Supreme Court decision in Obergefell v. Hodges, which finally recognized marriage equality for gay and lesbian Americans as a constitutional right. The Leadership Conference submitted an amicus brief in this case in favor of marriage equality:

“This is a transformative day in American history. Today is the day that our nation’s highest court acknowledged the full dignity of LGBT Americans to love and build a family as equals in our society.

While today’s ruling ushers in a new era of acceptance and family security for LGBT Americans, it also highlights the blunt denial of basic rights – in access to employment, housing, public accommodations, education, and credit—that are still being denied in too many states across the nation.

Just as the Supreme Court case of Loving v. Virginia, which held that state laws prohibiting interracial marriage were unconstitutional, was a forerunner to marriage equality for LGBT people, our nation must also adopt a comprehensive nationwide law to give LGBT Americans the same protections that are already established for people of color, women, religious minorities, and people with disabilities. 

Civil rights can only be measured by a single yardstick and our nation can no longer settle for piecemeal solutions to the second-class citizenship of LGBT Americans.”

Wade Henderson is president and CEO of The Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights, a coalition charged by its diverse membership of more than 200 national organizations to promote and protect the rights of all persons in the United States. The Leadership Conference works toward an America as good as its ideals. For more information on The Leadership Conference and its 200-plus member organizations, visit www.civilrights.org.
