Capps to Speak at Saturday’s Pacific Pride Festival

On Saturday, Rep. Lois Capps, D-Santa Barbara, will participate in the 2013 Pacific Pride Festival at Leadbetter Beach. She is scheduled to speak at 3 p.m.

The annual celebration is both an opportunity to build community and celebrate the diversity of the LGBT community, but also to raise funds for the wide variety of important programs and services Pacific Pride offers every day.

“With the Supreme Court’s recent historic rulings that struck down DOMA and returned the right to marry to all in California, there is plenty to celebrate this weekend,” Capps said. “I applaud the work Pacific Pride Foundation does on a daily basis, and I am looking forward to celebrating these important judicial victories while we continue the fight for full equality around the country.”

Thousands of people are expected to attend the festival, which also serves to raise money to support Pacific Pride’s mission.

Capps, a longtime supporter of equal rights for gays, lesbians, bisexuals and transgender people, is a member of the LGBT Equality Caucus.

— Chris Meagher is press secretary for Rep. Lois Capps, D-Santa Barbara.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
