Schipske and Garcia to Walk Together in Gay Pride Parade
I suggested to Councilman Garcia that the two of us walk together at the upcoming Sunday Gay Pride Parade to demonstrate our unity. He agreed. (I do hope we have a backup car just in case my feet give out.)
Both of us understand how very important this weekend is to our community and how significant it is that Long Beach has two openly lesbian and gay elected officials who both care deeply about our City and all of its residents.
I've cautioned Councilman Garcia that our walking together without my partner, Flo, will be the talk of the community. But in the words of my favorite (maybe lesbian) singer, Anne Murray: "Let's give them something to talk about."
