The evening will celebrate the pioneering publication, which was founded in the aftermath of the Stonewall rebellion in 1969. The event will be held Friday, Oct. 18 at the Intercontinental Hotel at the Wharf in Washington, D.C. Among those honored will be philanthropist Ariadne Getty and pioneering journalist Lou Chibbaro, who has covered the LGBT community for over 3 decades at the Washington Blade. Tickets are on sale now at blade50th.com. “We are thrilled to honor these individuals for their diverse contributions to the LGBT community as we celebrate our 50thbirthday,” said Kevin Naff, editor. “From journalism to philanthropy, they exemplify everything we strive for at the Blade – to give back in some way to the larger LGBTQ community,” concluded Naff. “I am humbled to be receiving The Washington Blade Lifetime Achievement Award as we recognize and celebrate 50 years of Blade’s pioneering, dedicated, accurate and insightful LGBTQ coverage. It is the go-to for readers who seek to be informed on all LGBTQ matters,” said Ariadne Getty, President and Executive Director of the Ariadne Getty Foundation. Lou Chibbaro: “It is truly an honor to be named a local Hero. As a news reporter who has covered local news for many years, my being in the news in a small way like this is new to me. But the work I’ve been able todo in covering the news for the Washington Blade for many years has been possible because of the diverse and vibrant LGBT community that’s been the subject of our local and national stories. Thus I share this honor with all of you who are part of that community.” Since 1969, the Washington Blade has covered the LGBTQ community of the metro D.C. area, nationally and internationally. Initially a local publication that covered and was a resource to the growing LGBTQ community in Washington, DC, one of several epicenters of the early gay rights movement, it has expanded over the past 5 decades to include coverage of political news and is currently the only LGBTQ source inthe White House press pool and is the only LGBTQ outlet in the White House Correspondents’ Association. The evening will include an entertaining and informative history of LGBTQ rights in D.C. and America as told through the Blade’s one-of-a-kind 50-year archive with remarks from Blade publisher Lynne Brown and editor Kevin Naff. “We look forward to celebrating the Blade’s pioneering work and raising a glass to 50 years of progress,” said Blade publisher Lynne Brown. “So many Washingtonians played a part in the Blade’s growth, it’s time we paid tribute to all of them.” “At a time when media, especially LGBTQ media, is challenged by the dizzying array of multiple platforms and ways to access information, The Blade is not only surviving, but thriving, as a respected and reliable source of the news the LGBTQ community is looking for,” said Kevin Naff, editor. “The Blade is a go-to publication and site for news, investigative journalism, current and accurate stories for LGBTQ the community, by the LGBTQ community and we are thrilled to celebrate 50 years of service in this historic year,” concluded Naff.Gender-Neutral Barbie Has ArrivedMattel, the toy manufacturer of Hot Wheels cars and Barbie dolls, has launched its first line of gender-inclusive dolls designed to encourage more creative play for boys, girls and anyone identifying as both, neither or in-between.

The Sacramento BENT LGBTQ Film Festival is gearing up for its 28th Season this Oct 11 - 13. While we gather at the Crest Theater and IMAX theatre during the run of the film Festival, let’s remember those in need by donating to the 3rd annual coat drive for LGBTQ+ youth experiencing homelessness. Bent is proud to announce that this year’s beneficiary will be the Short-Term Transitional Emergency Program (STEP) the new LGBTQ+ housing program that The Sacramento LGBT Center just opened up this July – that helps serve LGBTQ+ young adults experiencing homelessness in the greater Sacramento area. Volunteers from STEP will be on hand to collect coats, gloves, and hats to keep our younger unhoused siblings warm this winter. Coats are a necessity that should be accessible to all of our Sacramento community, and a new or gently used coat would help in this endeavor. This program provides a 24-hour shelter with an average 90-day stay that includes meals, clothing, and case management/housing navigation for transitional aged youth from the ages of 18-24 who have been recipients of a crime/ violence.Youth will receive assistance from a case manager, housing navigator, and advocates to obtain identification documents, access to medical and mental health services, and assistance with navigating next steps in their transition to more permanent housing. As the holidays are fast approaching, it’s times like these that we think of family and friends during the holiday season giving to those who are in need is the greatest calling one can do! Here is a list of ongoing needs for the shelter: Paper towels, Pinesol, laundry detergent, dryer sheets, toilet paper, hand soap, Clorox wipes, mouth wash, hand sanitizer, deodorant, shampoo, conditioner, windex, hangers and school supplies If you would like to donate more in monetary contributions or for more information you can contact the Sacramento LGBT Community Center at 2012 K St, Sacramento, CA 95811 or (916) 442-0185Volunteers Needed To Help Kids ReadLocal residents age 50 and up are needed this fall to help kids in kindergarten through third grade improve their reading through AARP Experience Corps, managed locally by United Way California Capital Region. To learn more and sign up to volunteer, visit YourLocalUnitedWay.org/Experience-Corps-Literacy-Program “Kids who are not reading at grade level by fourth grade are more likely to fall behind in all subjects, including math and science, making them less likely to graduate from high school,” said Stephanie Bray, president and CEO, United Way California Capital Region. “This corps of volunteers is essential to ensuring our community’s kids are successful.” Volunteers serve at local schools approximately two days per week for two to three hours a day throughout the school year, tutoring and tracking progress for groups of two to three students for the year. Volunteers meet monthly to share best practices and receive literacy and classroom management experience. They receive training to become mentors and role models and to hone their skills to help students reach their reading goals. Last year, United Way’s AARP Experience Corps helped 415 students with reading – 62 percent of those who were reading below grade level improved their reading and literary performance. In 2018, program participant Robla School District reported more students meeting and exceeding 8Outword MagazineOctober 10, 2019 - October 24, 2019 • No. 634standards in English Language Arts compared to 2017 – the rate of annual increase was three times higher than state and county averages. “The results are encouraging and worth the work,” said Experience Corps volunteer Mary Ann Rider. “I never felt like I was cut out to be a teacher, but I felt prepared by the curriculum I had learned in our training. Plus getting to know the kids is fun. If you’re looking for volunteer work, what’s more important than helping a child learn to read?” United Way California Capital Region is one of only seven nonprofits across the country helping to grow Experience Corps, the evidence-based AARP Foundation literacy program that improves the reading skills of children, enriches the lives of volunteer tutors and strengthens schools in local communities.

And if you needed information related to AIDS/HIV when the crisis emerged, there was only one reliable place that you could turn: your local LGBT newspaper, like this one. At that time, the mainstream media, even “The New York Times” and Philadelphia Inquirer, were derelict in their duties as media sources and journalists. If you needed to know where to receive treatment, what drugs were available to help, and new organizations that were formed to help support the fight, the only place you could find information on a regular, reliable basis was your local LGBT newspaper. It was also in your local LGBT newspaper that you first read about the new drug called PrEP. The company that developed PrEP knew that among their markets was the LGBT community, so they made sure we received press releases about promising results from the drug during development. The first marketing campaign benefited the gay community, our community, a community very much affected by HIV/AIDS. But you might have noticed it’s no longer this way. These drug companies have a TV strategy now. Have you seen their commercials on FX or other TV channels? It might not seem important to you that a drug company has decided to leave the LGBT media market and head to the greener pastures of mainstream media, but it is, because LGBT media will be writing about the long-term effects of PrEP, as we did with the first miracle drug, AZT. And it is LGBT media that will write about any new drugs that come along, and new drugs will come because advancements are always being made. Why am I writing this? As someone who has seen this community grow for 50 years now, I’ve also watched as corporate America has woken up to how strong a buying market we are. I’m acutely aware of corporate responsibility to give back to communities that support their products, and I applaud the National LGBT Chamber of Commerce for educating us about economic equality. If our community is partially responsible for the success of a product, shouldn’t the company support our community? Or, even more logically, shouldn’t the company continue to seek people who need the product by advertising in a place that they trust?A recent study from the Williams Institute points out, thanks to PrEP, there is a sexual revolution going on in our community. Doesn’t that mean they have a responsibility to educate our community? This is a discussion that many LGBT publishers have had in a changing media landscape. Looking back over 50 years of activism, including 44 as a publisher of LGBT media, I’m happy to see banks, communications companies, casinos and real estate companies in our papers. Do you know why we have so many companies in our papers? It’s because of your strong voice and loyalty to companies that support our community. Think Absolut Vodka. While we can easily find what the Swedish vodka company has done for the LGBT community and media for 25 years, especially in support of the HIV/AIDS community, can we say the same for companies who make PrEP or an economic powerhouse like Apple? I think you know the answer. Maybe in my next 50 years of activism, I’ll see an Apple ad in an LGBT newspaper. And maybe PrEP companies will come to the realization that you can’t just blare ads on mainstream media and hope that people will pay attention. Our community takes LGBT media seriously because we take our community seriously. Our number one concern is educating the people we serve, something that PrEP companies seem to have, unfortunately, forgotten.
