Everyone is invited to join in the celebration for the LGBT History Project at the Historical Society of Long Beach. The year-long exhibit entitled “Coming Out in Long Beach” opens this month, with the special gala preview happening this Saturday, February 23rd. Award-winning musician Melissa Etheridge will make an appearance at the gala. In the beginning of her career, she played at Long Beach’s first lesbian bar, Que Sera.
The exhibit is set to highlight the struggle for equal rights and the tremendous contributions of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community in Long Beach. “This is about honoring the past and the men and womenwho came before us who just did amazing work at a time when being outspoken was not only unpopular, but it was dangerous as well” said Ron Sylvester, president of The Center Long Beach.
The HSLB set forth on the major endeavor to preserve and present the history of the city’s LGBT community last summer, convening with a steering committee to oversee the completion of an exhibit that includes the compilation of oral histories and the production of a video documentary. “Since then organizers have secured a title sponsor for the project-Mercedes Benz Long Beach-to help put the materials together and to preserve them for future use,” says Julie Bartolotto, executive director of the HSLB.
LGBT History Project Kickoff Gala
Saturday, February 23, 7pm, at the Historical Society of Long Beach: 4260 Atlantic Avenue, Long Beach, CA.
Tickets $100 per person, or $90 for HSLB Members.

I just listed this home, and it is already generating LOTS of activity. Making the home look great and pricing it competitively is a winning formula for a quick sale. Simple as that!
I had a lot of fun getting the property ready for sale…the owner is quite a character. He had some great furniture pieces, but not always in the right places. I brought some key accent pieces, bedding, artwork, and plants to make it feel a little more welcoming. I know that made all the difference in helping buyers visualize themselves living there.
Who will the next lucky seller be who gets my design and staging expertise for their property at NO extra charge? We shall see…
