To Stop Pride from Becoming America's Pride

During the San Diego Pride Board Retreat in October of 2012 Joe Meyer introduced a motion to change the name of the "San Diego Pride Festival " to "America's Pride" with an alternating theme and the Board voted to approve the motion 5 to 2. We feel that that after the turn of events in 2010, it was established that San Diego Pride belongs to the San Diego LGBT Community and that Board and its staff are just the custodians of the event, and that something as drastic as changing the identity of the event should have been a decision brought up to and discussed by the community. With this past history of poor decisions under previous boards that affect the entire LGBT community the Board should be more willing to present these proposals to the public to be more transparent and open.

I am writing you today because of the change of the name of the "San Diego Pride Festival" to "America's Pride." For two reasons this troubles me, the first being that the SD Pride Board didn't seek community input on the decision and the second the rebranding of the event strips it from it's connection to the local LGBT Community and it's past achievements and struggles and seperates from it's future.
