  • Pride Center SA Finds a New Home

    Tue, 22 Apr 2014 22:26:12 +0000

    After searching for a brick-and-mortar home since its inception in 2009, Pride Center SA has recently settled into offices in the Monte Vista neighborhood— a temporary stop in the journey to find permanent digs. “The goal is for it to be a permanent space until we raise enough money and start a capital campaign to build or purchase a building,” Richard Farias, board president, tells the Current. The new spot, located at East Mistletoe and McCullough Avenue, will serve as a centralized hub for meetings with the board, program organizers and the community. Regular office hours begin on May 1 and will serve walk-in visitors seeking health care referrals, information on support, LGBT advocacy groups and local activities. In 2013, the non-profit leased a space on Fredericksburg Road but soon realized it wasn’t equipped for programming and events and fell out of their lease. While they’ve been on the hunt for their building headquarters, the Center never slowed down its schedule, offering a monthly lineup of events around the city geared toward assisting the LGBT community and its allies. Every third Sunday of the month, the center invites LGBT residents and their parents to ‘Pride Families’ a social and support group […]
  • A Voice for Children: Serving as a Child Advocate in San Antonio

    Mon, 21 Apr 2014 17:26:13 +0000

    This essay is not meant to tweak your guilt, nor do I intend for it to horrify you into volunteer work. This April, National Child Abuse Awareness Month, I just want you to know that volunteering for public service isn’t as hard as you might think, and yes, you’re perfect for it. I’ve seen the commercials—the starving third world children, the abused animals in tiny cages. I’ve changed the channel. To fully process that visual information between episodes of Say Yes To the Dress and other Saturday mid-morning reruns is overwhelmingly sad. Though I’ve always considered helping others to be a priority, it seems like no matter what image the charitable organizations show, set to what Sarah McLachlan song, or how easy they make it (for just 25 cents a day/for less than the price of a cup of coffee/just text AID to 2345) it can be harder to get personally involved than I’d like to admit. Maybe that’s because sending money doesn’t feel personal. Or maybe it’s because the issue seems insurmountable, so incomprehensibly complicated that there’s no way it’s so easy to fix so I might as well think about something else . . .like the Comedy Central […]
  • Caption Contest: What is this cop thinking?

    Fri, 18 Apr 2014 23:59:11 +0000

    KSAT got a hold of this viewer-submitted photo, of what looks to be a SAPD motorcycle cop testing his faith on Good Friday. Look for the follow-up story, “SAPD officer in critical condition after car reversed into him on I-35,” tonight at 10.
