Tonight, the Oprah Winfrey Network (OWN) is scheduled to present a repeat showing of Lisa Ling's documentary God & Gays, which followed the complete change of heart by Alan Chambers, president of Irvine-based Exodus International, to "gay conversion therapy." Ling hosts a private screening at Sony Pictures Theaters in Culver City with Darrell Steinberg, the California Senate president pro tem, state Sen. Ted Lieu (D-Redondo Beach), and founder Rick Jacobs, who will dish on the film and the state of the LGBT movement after a pretty momentous couple of weeks.
Prominent filmmaker Lisa Ling will screen her new documentary, "God and Gays," in Culver City on Thursday evening. The screening comes as the Exodus International "gay conversion" therapy group prepares to shut its doors after renouncing its views, and the U.S. Supreme Court prepares to issue rulings this week on two matters concerning gay marriage.
Reaction to the Supreme Court's decisions Wednesday in two gay marriage cases:
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) entertained on Saturday the idea of a discharge petition for the Employment Non-Discrimination Act — but was skeptical the bill has the votes for passage in the U.S. House.
About 2,700 liberal bloggers, social-media mavens, petitioners, organizers and other online activists swarmed the San Jose McEnery Convention Center on Thursday for the first full day of their eighth annual convention, darting between seminars, panel discussions and exhibit halls.
Liberal activists pledged Thursday to put a measure on the ballot to overturn California's gay marriage ban if the Supreme Court does not throw out Proposition 8 in a decision expected next week.
At Courage Campaign's Liquid Courage party for Netroots Nation 2013, former Democratic presidential candidate Howard Dean said that President Obama needs to justify his administration's surveillance policies to the American people.
Never mind fear of growing government surveillance or anger at a dysfunctional Congress, progressive Democrats. Howard Dean, the former Democratic presidential hopeful and architect of the "50-state strategy", told a roomful of progressives Wednesday night that the left has plenty of reason for optimism. "It’s very easy to get discouraged about all the things that are going wrong," he admitted, speaking at a party held in advance of Netroots Nation this week.
California's ahead-of-the-curve health insurance exchange and its aggressive outreach to uninsured Latino residents make the state a model for the nation -- and proof that Obamacare can work, President Barack Obama said Friday. Courage Campaign urges Gov. Brown not to lag in the Affordable Care Act's implementation.


We're fighting for a more progressive California.
