Re: “2016 Cleveland Pride Parade Canceled

Sad indeed but our safety is paramount. We live Pridefully each day. Next year, when Hillary is president, shit will have calmed down. We need our city to air out for a while anyway... Let all the republican hate and bigotry the GOP brought with them blow away.

Re: “2016 Cleveland Pride Parade Canceled

To me, the use of "changing social climate" is fear-mongering and a doubtful reason for canceling this long-time event. I encourage folks to look at the organization itself (which, for example, hadn't updated it blog since last August and included only 2 mentions of the upcoming event in its Facebook posts since mid-July). After all, in this social climate, Cleveland City Council and the mayor - few weeks before the RNC came to town - adopted the non-discrimination public accommodation bill - and a community (Northeast Ohio) that opened their hearts to make Gay Games 9 the most welcoming that long-time participants had ever seen. (And region that showed it can come together not only for GG9 but the RNC and the Cavs Championship parade without causing trouble.)
See statement of hope from LGBT Center of Cleveland which was not involved in decision to cancel: http://www.lgbtcleveland.org/uploads/3/4/1/5/34158257/cleveland_pride_cancellation.pdf(Full disclosure: My perspective comes as an ally and former staff member of GG9.)

Re: “2016 Cleveland Pride Parade Canceled

I think the fear is they will be targeted by the JV team. It has nothing to do with the fear of participants being unruly...

Re: “2016 Cleveland Pride Parade Canceled

What a sad statement to PRIDE. Giving into fear mongering and hate solves nothing. If CPD can protect out of town GOP from protestors, why will
The refuse to protect it LGBT citizens!!

Re: “2016 Cleveland Pride Parade Canceled

It sounds like the organization received some sort of threat, without them outright saying so. I wonder if more will come out in the days ahead?

Re: “2016 Cleveland Pride Parade Canceled

wow..... so the Cavs get to celebrate with over a million people.... but LGBTQ cant? I'm sure this will outrage a lot of people..... so the city can be dangerously crowded with basketball team and its fans but not a group of peaceful people celebrating our freedom... I'm so disgusted.

Re: “Stefan Was

The staff, the drinks, the experience of immersing yourself within the world of Porco...it's like entering an alternate universe, one you don't want to leave. I love you guys.

Re: “A Giant Outlet Mall on Lakefront Property Downtown? Cleveland Must Be Insane to Consider It

I concur. This is the absolute last thing that should be built on this site. It directly contradicts everything the City as a whole has been striving towards. There is also the question: Is it even needed?warranted?wanted? I think not. Let us aim to fill the gaps in retail, with the The old Arcade, The Avenue at Tower City and the Galleria. Building this would be a blunder for a City right now at the height of it's game (Public Square, Cavs Championship, Successful RNC)

Re: “Myra Rosario

Myra Rosario is one of the most talented Hispanic entrepreneurs in Northeast Ohio. I am completely amazed how she has been able to single handedly bring recognition to over 100 local Latin-owned business and Latin non-profit organizations. She is an inspiration to my daughter and I am happy to see positive role models in our Latino community.

Thank you Myra for shining brightly...

Re: “On July, Cigars, Josh Gordon and Snapchat — The A to Z Podcast With Andre Knott and Zac Jackson

The last time Josh Gordon was on the field......he showed little motivation and had a playbook filled with reasons to cash paychecks by giving zero effort. In another setting with bad attitudes, Mike Singletary said it best: “Cannot play with them, cannot win with them, cannot coach them.”

Re: “Stefan Was

After visiting many tiki bars around the US and finding it filled with pretentious people, it was a breath of fresh air when Stefan opened Porco. Cheers to you my friend.

Re: “Stefan Was

What a wonderfully well written article, it does better than most at capturing the spirit of Porco. I am lucky enough to call Stefan my friend. He and Anne Marie are like a bug light for magnificent people. When you walk into Porco you'll feel it, there is a lot of love in that room.
