“Hatred and bitterness can never cure the disease, only love can do that.”
Martin Luther King
This publication is dedicated to those
t is our goal to record the positive contributions
people make to their community and the localcommunity at large. While AIDS and Hate CRIMES are certainly not positive things, we seek to draw thepositive from the negative. We hold up Paul Delph and Matthew Shepard and their families as models ofhow human beings should or could react to each other and how families should support loved ones whoselives are not in the box right wing religious zealots want them in. Delph, a multi-talented Cincinnatian, diedof AIDS in 1996. His mother shut down her business to care for him. Shepard died in 1998, victim of a hateCrime and his mother worked for years to get passed a national Hate Crimes Bill, which is now law.

Real politic 101By Tedd Good
If my latest columns seem tobe obsessed with Russian TsarPresident Obama and the EUfail miserably handling theUkraine Crisis. They want touse the failure as a means of installing their type of leader
. Please note that
radio programs are no longeron the air. When MediaBridges lost its City fundinglast year, it had to close. Sinceit held the license for WVQC,the station and all showsended as well. Both
wereon air every Saturday fordecades and offered Cin-cinnatians and NorthernKentucky Women’s com-munities, GLBTQ and GLBTfriendly communities andlisteners news, interviews andmusic, not heard oncommercial radio. Thanks for supporting thesemedia outlets for so long andmaking information aboutboth shows available through
Putin in 2016
Putin I , it is in part because Irights need be afraid – veryafraid. He has become a globalfascist leader because the TeaParty GOP sings his praises asthe type of leader USA oughtto have. I am talking about acheering section of folks likeLimbaugh, Palin , Hannity ,Giuliani et.als. They see TsarPutin being a strong decisiveleader who is fanaticallynationalistic and the willingtool of the oligarchs andOrthodox Church. These cheerleaders havebecome Tsar Putin’s fifthcolumn in USA hopingnext electioncycle. ForbesMagazine is al-ready setting upthis scenario. Meanwhileback in Ukraineand Russia ,Crimean min-orities in theLGBT , Jewish , And Tatarcommunities are expressing fearand loathing of their newRussian masters. While theyacknowledge that the Ukrainiangovernment may have some neofascists , they are scared of theefficient Russian Police State.Kiev’s threadbare incompetenceand attempts to buy of community leaders is far easierto deal with. Tsar Putin has become moreovert about his intentions. Heis now registering Jews inCrimea as potential subversives.In Eastern Ukrainian Citiesoccupied by Russian separatists, the local Juntas are alsorequiring Jews to register aswell. He is also enforcing newregulations constricting publicprotests for all Russians and theregistration of foreign basedorganizations doing business aspotential subversives. Essentially he is expandingthe restrictions against theLGBT community to allRussian subjects (
they haveceased to be real citizens
) .That’s just how gradualismworks. Whoever becomes thenew hero of the Tea Party forthe 2016 GOP presidentialnomination must be seen asthe one who has the mostPutin potential. Be afraid. Bevery afraid.
NEVER AGAIN !!

I have observed and/or par-ticipated in PRIDE for manyyears. Since 1996, as publisherof
I have had theprivilege of re-porting PRIDEactivities. I am proud of our continuallygrowing Cincin-nati PRIDE andI
send “best wishes”
for this year’s activities. I am also proud of KarenHalaszyn, a straight ally whohas been selling Ads and other-wise supporting this publica-tion for many years. And, I want to say how proudI am of my volunteer writersand photographers. I have had many over theyears and I can’t name them allbut I do want to salute MichaelX. Chanak who serves as a vol-unteer associate editor and col-umnist. Michael sometimes disagreeswith some of our content but heis a real “media” person andsays “so be it.” You will find columns of ourpresent volunteer writers in thisissue except forthe Rev. JoySimpson who wasbusy doing herfaith jobs whencolumns were duein April. Thanks to youall. This year I re-minded our columnists that thisis our PRIDE Edition, mostwrote about PRIDE directly orindirectly. Expanding on the topic of PRIDE. I am proud we haveattorneys on our side here in theCincy. One of them, our friend ScottKnox, has a story beginning onPage 1. I feel that when thereis somebody who knows much,much more than I do about atopic, I invite them to write astory about it. Best in PRIDE!
