Photo: Trinity Episcopal Church[Diocese of Missouri] Trinity Episcopal Church in St. Louis’ Central West End is the first site in Missouri to be named to the National Register of Historic Places (NRHP) for its significance in LGBTQ history. It is the first and only such site in Missouri and the only Episcopal parish in the country so honored. Trinity is recognized in particular for the years 1969 to 1993, which include its early support of gay rights, its embrace of LGBTQ parishioners and community members, and its compassionate response to the first AIDS patients in the 1980s.The recognition of Trinity is part of an effort by the U.S. Department of the Interior to document a more complete story of the gay rights movement, a project announced in May 2014 by Secretary Sally Jewell. The NRHP is the U.S. federal government’s official list of districts, sites, buildings, structures and objects deemed significant to American history and worthy of preservation. Currently there are 93,500 sites across the country, with LGBTQ sites numbering less than 20.“Trinity, as a progressive Episcopal church, continues today as an energetic supporter of LGBTQIA+ worshippers,” said the Rev. Jon Stratton, rector of the church. “We are honored by the NRHP recognition and wear this designation proudly.”A formal dedication ceremony, including the installation of a plaque on the exterior of the church at 600 N. Euclid Ave., will be held on Saturday, June 13. Bishop-elect Deon Johnson, whose ordination is planned for April 25, will be an honored guest and speaker. Johnson will be the first openly gay bishop to serve in the Diocese of Missouri.“Trinity’s longtime support for the LGBTQIA+ community dates back to its serving as the meeting space of St. Louis’ first gay rights organization, The Mandrake Society, in 1969,” said Steven Brawley, founder of the LGBT History Project in St. Louis.The NRHP designation came after a concentrated period of reflection, recollection and research by members of the church and those involved in the preservation of St. Louis’ early gay and lesbian history.Aiding the application process were longtime Trinity parishioners who are keepers of parish records and institutional memory for the years cited in the NRHP designation – Ellie Chapman, wife of the late Trinity rector Rev. William Chapman; Etta Taylor, church archivist; and Jym Andris, community historian. Their work was supplemented by Ian Darnell, curatorial assistant for the LGBTQ Collection at The Missouri History Museum, and Steven Brawley.University of Kansas professor Katie Batza wrote the application as an extension of a current book project and as part of her ongoing work with the National Park Service LGBT Heritage Initiative. She said that as the application took shape, Trinity Church’s ties to the LGBTQ community were inspirational.“It was encouraging to see how committed Trinity was to the rights of all of its gay and lesbian parishioners at a time when these rights largely were unknown to the mainstream,” she said. “The first Mandrake Society meeting at Trinity was one of a handful of local, national and global political actions and protests in 1969 – including the Stonewall Riots in Greenwich Village – that marked the start of a new civil rights movement.”Trinity Episcopal Church, founded in 1855, has stood at the corner of Euclid and Washington avenues since 1935. Trinity is urban, socially progressive and Anglo-Catholic in its worship. Its rector is 35-year-old Jon Stratton, a social justice activist involved with the Clean Missouri campaign and a member of the leadership team at Missouri Jobs with Justice.– Michael Shepley is a member of Trinity Episcopal Church.

Student tells story of his life through one-man show

Watching E! News while eating a Chipotle burrito is my favorite pastime. Go Cowboys! TCU places second in the National Student Advertising Competition, the highest in school history Taylor Boser printOne TCU student knew from the age of four he knew he wanted to be a performer. It wasn’t until seventh grade that he discovered musical theatre and has been following his passion ever since.Logan Lane, senior musical theatre major, left his small town of Foley, Alabama to pursue his passion of musical theatre at TCU.“My introduction to musical theatre was through a woman named Patti LuPone,” Lane said. “I read her memoir about her life and musical theatre and I was like ‘oh my gosh, I want to do that!’”LuPone is an actress, singer and stage performer. She began her career in the industry more than 45 years ago.While auditioning for college musical theatre programs during high school, Lane met Harry Parker, TCU’s theatre department chair.“My initial reaction of when I met him is that he was unbelievably talented,” Parker said. “I could tell he was going to be a great fit at TCU pretty much from the first couple minutes I ever was in the room with him.”Lane has lived up to Parker’s expectations.“He has a very high work ethic,” Parker said. “He has inspired a lot of people to do their best, to be as prepared as he is and to be as kind and thoughtful as he is.”Parker also thinks Lane is a people connector.“He works very hard at cultivating relationships,” Parker said. “He makes friends with everybody he can and he works really hard to keep those connections going.”During Lane’s time at TCU, he has been in seven productions. His eighth performance is Bat Boy, which will be performed from April 24-28.Another accomplishment Lane had at TCU is the one-man show he wrote about his life called “Logan’s Ladies.”“There were so many other women who were these great Broadway musical theatre legends that I just fell in love with,” Lane said. “I sing all of their songs and they kind of help tell the story of my life.”Before each performance, Lane has a similar feeling.“My stomach, of course, is in knots,” Lane said. “Right at that moment when you know you’re about to go on, it hits you of like, oh yeah, here we go. So it’s thrilling and scary all at the same time.” Twitter Taylor Boser Facebook Taylor Boser Linkedin + posts Twitter Facebookcenter_img Majority of faculty votes yes on DEI ballot Taylor Boser Taylor Boser ReddIt (Photo by Taylor Boser) TAGStheater Linkedin ReddIt World Oceans Day shines spotlight on marine plastic pollution Counseling available as TCU mourns a student’s death Ash Wednesday marks start of Lent Welcome TCU Class of 2025last_img read more

The residents who live and work in the foothill communities that make up the 25th Senate District want and deserve a Senator who is familiar with our neighborhoods and who fundamentally knows that Public Safety is important to us. In particular, Chiefs and Rank and File law enforcement officers worked closely with Anthony on the ‘open carry’ ban that was signed into law. The Los Angeles County Police Chiefs enthusiastically endorse Anthony Portantino for the State Senate,” added Chief Kevin L. McClure, Political Action Committee Chair Los Angeles County Police Chiefs Association and 25th SD Resident.While in the State Assembly, Portantino was recognized as Legislator of the Year by the Cal Chiefs for his efforts to take guns off main street California. Anthony was the author of AB 144 and AB 1527 which banned the open carry of hand guns and rifles on Main Street California. The Police Chiefs and many men and women in their departments had long sought the closing of the open carry loophole. Portantino was the first legislator to succeed in that effort.“I am so honored to have earned the support and trust of both the Los Angeles County and the California Police Chiefs Associations for our State Senate campaign. I was very pleased to have teamed up with our Chiefs and our rank and file men and women in uniform to take guns off Main Street California. To know that the Chiefs stand with me, today, is humbling and a further sign of our positive momentum” commented Portantino.Anthony is a former Mayor, Councilmember and State Assemblymember. He is currently a Visiting Fellow at USC and a member of the California Film Commission. Anthony is the father of two daughters, Sofia who completed her K-12 education in the district and Bella, an 8th grader.

Arts in danger of budget cuts

first_img However, Head said moving $187 million in funding to different departments and agencies to the General Fund that is already $200 million in the hole is questionable.“That move would put a lot of pressure on the Legislature to adopt new taxes and other sources of revenue to fund the General Fund,” Head said. “Being placed in the General Fund would be a hazardous and risky place for us to be. If no new taxes were approved, there would have to be significant cuts in the General Fund.“It is no secret that our legislators have no appetite for new taxes. They have just finished election cycles where they promised no new taxes.“If we were moved to the General Fund, it would be hard to reflect on a scenario that would be positive for ASCA.

911 call system, radio failures hindered police response to school shooting

first_imgiStock/Thinkstock(PARKLAND, Fla.) — An analysis of 911 calls, radio traffic and security footage released by authorities Thursday reveals system failures amid the chaos and confusion between law enforcement during the Valentine’s Day school shooting in South Florida.The Broward County Sheriff’s Office analyzed the materials and released a thorough timeline, along with audio recordings, detailing law enforcement’s response and operations on Feb. 14, when a gunman opened fire at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, killing 17 people and injuring others.The sheriff’s office explained in its report that it operates Broward County’s regional 911 system, but the city of Coral Springs isn’t part of that and thus operates its own separate center. The city of Parkland contracts the Coral Springs Fire Department for its fire rescue services and the Broward County Sheriff’s Office for its law enforcement services.According to the sheriff’s office, all cellular 911 calls from Parkland are therefore routed to the Coral Springs Communications Center, which is then tasked with transferring those calls to the Coral Springs Fire Department, the Broward County Sheriff’s Office or both, depending on the emergency.Broward County and Coral Springs were flooded with 911 calls as students, teachers and faculty at the high school in Parkland were under attack, according to the report. The Broward County Sheriff’s Office received about 71 incoming calls during the incident, while the Coral Springs Communications Center received around 86, three of which were transferred to the Broward County Sheriff’s Office for the law enforcement response.“Multiple gunshots are being fired; we can hear them in the background. Our 911 lines are blowing up. We have multiple units on the phone,” a Coral Springs dispatcher says over the radio.Dozens of deputies and officers arrived at the school, but some couldn’t communicate with each other due to failed attempts to merge radio traffic between the Broward County Sheriff’s Office and the Coral Springs Police Department, according to the report. They were unable to exchange descriptions of the shooter, his location and the weapon he wielded via a common radio channel.“White male with ROTC uniform burgundy shirt,” a Coral Springs police officer says over the radio. “Last seen in the three-story building, north parking lot,” the officer adds, referring to building 12.A few seconds later, a Broward County sheriff’s deputy responds to an inquiry over the radio about the shooter’s location, “We don’t know, but we’re heading in the building, in front of the 13 building — building 13.”The high radio traffic inundated the system, which the sheriff’s office said is “nearing its end of life” and is expected to be changed out next year. At some point, officers couldn’t transmit or receive some radio messages because the system was impaired, according to the report.“This impairment, otherwise known as ‘throttling,’ occurred at some point during the incident and hindered radio communications,” the sheriff’s office said in its report. “This issue is being further analyzed.” Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.
