What is Gay Tulare?

          Welcome to LGBT Tulare! This website is the official online location of LGBT Tulare, a Chapter of the LGBT Community Network, an organization serving California’s Central Valley to provide connections among the LGBT Communities of our area.

          As one of its Chapters, LGBT Tulare strives to connect community members who identify as Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender, as well as those who exist in the cross-sections of these identities. More that anything, this Chapter and this website serve members of the public who identify this way, or who seek to support those who do.

 has many facets that make it a worthwhile website. There are several tabs for peruse, including Nightlife, LGBT Role Models and News, among other sections. The content is updated on a semi-regular basis, and potential contributors are always welcome to improve and expand available online content.

Positive LGBTQ+ Advances

HIV+ treatment and awareness has improved greatly over the decades. This has increased the quality of life and hope for the many LGBTQ+ folks, including the Positive Community.

  Although HIV and AIDS have long been considered life-changing diagnoses, the recent medical advancements in this field have improved things greatly. From better treatment and prevention, to the possiblity of a cure for HIV-positive people, this field of research is extremely promising and offers hope for many people.

For a number of years, the Truvada (AKA Prep) pill has been available for folks to reduce their risk of becoming HIV-positive. This has helped many people, as well as their partners, concerned about passing on the virus or contracting it. The Positive Community has been one of the most marginalized groups in the past, and often left out of even the LGBTQ+ Community.

In addition, new methods of possibly curing HIV has been in the news lately. This is one of the most exciting fields of medical research today, and so far two people have been successfully cured of the HIV virus. Although this still needs more research, it certainly is an area worth exploring that has brought significant hope to many.

Lastly, the treatment for HIV and AIDS has improved greatly over the years, resulting in a better quality of life and life expectancy for those with HIV and AIDS. The medications available have changed this diagnosis from a hopeless, terminal diagnosis, to something much more hopeful and promising for folks. The LGBTQ+ Community includes HIV Positive people (the plus can also refer to other communities). This website is dedicated to including this acrnoym whenever possible, which has been admittedly a deficit for this site in the past.

Billy Porter Makes History

Billy Porter makes history as the first gay Black man to win the Emmy Award for Best Actor in a Drama. His win represents an amazing win for the LGBTQ Community.

   At this year's Emmys, Billy Porter made history as the first gay Black man to win an Emmy for a dramatic role. He did so in great style, as he usually does, while making it clear that times have changed and new barriers and being broken on a regular basis.

He seemed to know he would win, as he wore an amazing outfit complete with a hat that defied gravity and expectations at the same time. He has become known for his over-the-top outfits that frequently land him ont he best-dressed list after awards shows.

Mr. Porter is known for his on-screen and theater roles, especially his work on Broadway. He is a truly talented individual who has been in the entertainment business for decades, and just continues to shine as an actor.

There were other notable moments from the Emmys, including the show Transparent being discussed, which is in its final act currently. There were many other LGBTQ folks honored at this year's ceremony, including new and well-known industry leaders.

Television shows frequently feature LGBTQ-related themes these days. Just think about Orange is the New Black and Will & Grace. These shows, among many others, have featured talented LGBTQ actors and characters. They allow the queer experience to be more present in popular culture, while also giving viewers a chance to see themselves on the big screen!
