The Imperial Court System is one of the oldest GLBT organizations in the world, and was founded in 1965 in San Francisco by World War II Veteran Jose Julio Sarria (who in 1961 became the first openly gay candidate for public office in North America.)

Hillcrest Town Council update – July 31, 2015

The Hillcrest Town Council is thankful for the many community members who showed up to help clean up the neighborhood on Monday, July 20, following San Diego Pride weekend. It was an unexpectedly wet weekend with record levels of rain pouring down on the celebration, which made cleanup a little more difficult.

Thankfully it wasn’t raining on the morning of the cleanup, but things were still wet and muddy. Thanks again to everyone who showed up to help out, and to Mo’s Universe for sponsoring the “Talking Trash” social afterward.
