LGBTQ+San Diego

Stories of Struggles and Triumphs

In 1982, a Naval Intelligence Service investigation in San Diego to “ferret out the lesbians” aboard the submarine tender USS Dixon subjected twelve women to months of ordeal and ended in the dishonorable discharge of three of them. Just thirty-six years later, Sen. Toni Atkins (D-San Diego) became the first openly gay Senate leader in California’s state history.

To highlight this and other stories of perseverance and achievement, the San Diego History Center is partnering with Lambda Archives of San Diego to bring the first exhibition on the history of San Diego’s LGBTQ+ community to Balboa Park.

The Theatre School at North Coast Rep presents for FREE at three different outdoor venues in three different cities William Shakespeare’s THE COMEDY OF ERRORS. The Comedy of Errors tells the story of two sets of identical twins accidentally separated at birth. Antipholus and his servant, Dromio, both of Syracuse arrive in Ephesus, which turns out to be the home of their long lost twins, who go by the same names! When the Syracusans encounter the friends and families of their twins, a series of wild mishaps based on mistaken identities lead to wrongful beatings, a near-seduction, the arrest of Antipholus of Ephesus, and false accusations of infidelity, theft, madness, and demonic possession.
