I'm in the Papers!

Check out this link to an article in my local newspaper this morning:

I would only make one comment on the content of the in-print version (on-line this has been corrected) - when referring to the EQIE the author said we were part of EQCA and that is not the case. We collaborate with them and other activist groups at times and we "co-branded" with them specifically on the Leadership Summit last Saturday in San Bernardino, but we are our own, very independent grassroots activist group. We don't want to be bogged down by the agendas and policies of other larger groups or be crippled by the infighiting and posturing that goes on in many of them. We learned a lot on that subject at the Summit on Saturday past.

The author of the article said this to me this morning after she updated the article on-line:

"Since you do a lot of activism and such, I thought I'd let you know that you (or any other locals around SGV or the Pasadena area) don't need a stamp to send a letter to the editor.
Go to or We tend to get the same people writing in all the time about the weirdest stuff (there was a two-month debate in the letters about whether a jack-in-the-box commercial was morally bankrupt), so it'd be nice to mix it up."

So there you go - let's "mix it up"!

Hugs and blessings,
Eva-Genevieve! Scarborough


  1. That was a great article Eva. Isn't it something to see our issues and real people like us in mainstream publications now. Unbelievable ten or even five years ago. I am glad you are "out there" representing.Hugs.

  2. I read the article, Eva. It was wonderful. I lie that you were shown in a positive light compared to the sensationalism transgender are often written about. Congrats to to you and your efforts. I got a print out of the article so I can read it again.

  3. Eva, if there's anything I can do please don't hesitate to tell me.

  4. Thanks for the positive feedback my friends.

    Emma showed my life very balanced and for that I am thankful. If you would be so kind, Please post a comment to her on the SGV Trib site - there is a place to do so at the end of the article.

    Other than than what can you do? Lets see...
    Be yourself, be out and proud (and help others to be too), bet involved in
    local issues because every little thing make a difference, be happy, try your best to love your neighbors - even the unloved and unloveable ones, love God with all your heart and live life to the full!

    I'm preaching to the choir I know, but that is really the heart of the matter. If you do these things how can you go wrong?
