Pride 2006 News
Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger Supports
Santa Barbara’s 16th Annual GLBT Pride Celebration

Saturday, May 13th 2006

"I am pleased to extend warm greetings to all who have gathered for this year's Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Pride Celebrations."

"California is proud to host events that celebrate diversity and support active civic participation. I applaud your efforts to foster ties within your community and to promote cultural and social acceptance in our Golden State."

"Much progress has been made in the past 35 years to combat discrimination and prejudice against the gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender community. I salute Californians for standing up for America’s democratic ideals and working to advance respect and appreciation for all people. Your efforts serve to raise public awareness and advocate civil rights for all individuals, regardless of sexual orientation."

"On behalf of all Californians, I offer my best wishes for every continued success."

Arnold Schwarzenegger

We at GSB would like to remind you to "Get OUT The Vote!" Our nation and the LGBT community are at a very critical point in our development. Forces wishing to take away the very rights so many of us have fought and died for are rallying against us at this moment and the best hope we have is to use the power of our votes to stop them. 

Gay Santa Barbara will once again have an Official U. S. Government Gay Post Office (really!) at Santa Barbara Pride for all of you not registered to vote. Of course you can send your "I got OUT in SB" souvenir postcards to your friends and family with official SB Pride Station cancellation stamps as well!
This project is funded in part by the Community Events & Festivals Program using funds in part by the City of Santa Barbara and in partnership with the Santa Barbara County Arts Commission.
