Democrats for Equality,

Did you know that National City has a municipal ordinance on the books from the 1960’s that prohibits “impersonating members of the opposite sex?”

In a San Diego Union-Tribune article this week, club board member and LGBTQ activist Coyote Moon recently discovered the discriminatory law and reached out to National City Mayor Alejandra Sotelo-Solis and Councilmember Mona Rios.

Later this month, the National City Council is expected to officially vote to repeal the ordinance.

We want to thank and give a shout out to our club board member Coyote Moon for her activism on this, and a thank you to National City Mayor Alejandra Sotelo-Solis and Councilmember Mona Rios for working to move this repeal forward.

By the way, if you’re in National City, don’t forget to vote for our two endorsed candidates for City Council: Marcus Bush and Jose Rodriguez!

I love you all,

Ryan Trabuco (he/him/his)
