Just a quick note to let you know that while we may be misrepresented and in some cases under represented in the mainstream media’s coverage of lesbian and gay issues, this week’s Los Angeles Sentinel newspaper, a Black newspaper, will feature the story of Tanya and Karen in the aftermath of last week’s court decision.
Like I said before, I know who I am, where I come from, and who my people are. I’ve been writing for the Sentinel for a while now, and for the record, it was Danny Bakewell Sr., the publisher of the Sentinel, who made this story a top priority for the editorial staff this week in order to make sure that it was in the paper tomorrow. Kudos to Danny, Brenda, Ken, and my entire Sentinel family and thanks to Tanya and Karen for representing.
Established in 1933, the Los Angeles Sentinel is an African-American owned and operated newspaper that puts emphasis on issues concerning the African-American community and it’s readers.
Angelinos, you already know where to get the Sentinel, for everyone else, www.lasentinel.net.
This is one of many profiles and stories to come that will be featured in our papers and read by our people.
