OUT in Asbury Park

by Rainier Guerra

In the wake of President Trump’s announcement that he would ban transgender Americans from serving in the military, today U.S. Senator Cory Booker was joined by LGBT advocates at Garden State Equality’s office in Asbury Park to discuss legislative efforts to protect transgender service members.

Hungry in Asbury Park?

Let me introduce you to some of my favorite restaurants and watering holes in Asbury Park. When I moved to Asbury Park in 2001, the town was run-down, the boardwalk was nonexistent and reminiscent of the drug-ridden Coney Island beach in Brooklyn of yesteryear. Today it boasts a plethora of delicious, Zagat-rated restaurants, beautiful condos, great watering holes, and big supporters of the Asbury Park LGBTQ community.

Just when you thought Pissi Myles had done it all, she comes back and surprises us with a fantastic new video on iTunes – “Babashook,” based on the 2014 Australian psychological horror film “The Babadook.” Just released last Friday morning it has already found its way to the tops of the Billboard.com charts. Below is the official press release.

A New Pride Flag?

Before I begin to talk about the “new Pride flag,” I must state that this is my opinion and not that of this publication or of my community in Asbury Park as a whole. There’s been a lot of buzz recently about the “new Pride flag,” that includes two added colors, in brown and black, to represent black and people of color.

Our Foot Print

As we embark on the month of June, we realize two things, one, wow! Summer is here and two, it’s Gay Pride month. As I write this column, and as I prepare to celebrate gay Pride with my friends and chosen family here in Asbury Park, I can’t help but think about how it all began. I think of how the millennials and the younger children will never understand how hard our pioneers had it before the pomp and circumstance of Gay Pride parades. With the political climate being what it is now and with an administration that doesn’t acknowledge Gay Pride and furthermore a vice president that believes in conversion therapy for gays. Today I choose to revisit a little Gay Pride history and offer you a chance see not only where we’ve been and how far we’ve come, but also how important it is to keep fighting for our rights. I invite you to resist.
