Response to ‘Pride, Inc.’ [Ref: “Guest editorial: Pride, Incorporated,” Vol. 8, Issue 13, or online at bit.ly/2sVyeua.] This “editorial” is misleading and ignores that many of these corporations are involved through their LGBT Employee Resource Groups who are bringing together their LGBT employees and their families through the Pride event like Sony and Qualcomm. Do they not get to celebrate Pride because of where they work? Can only LGBT people who work for nonprofits participate?

One of a kind employer [Ref: “Team mom,” Vol. 7, Issue 12, or online at gay-sd.com/team-mom] Awesome story about an extremely generous, good-looking young man. John is the best employer I’ve ever had, and so was John Ealy Sr. — one of a kind.
