ImageFebruary 12th was an evening of comedy, activism, and fun-raising!  Sponsored by Central California Alliance, this fundraiser/comedy night raised $250.00 to go towards the MECA/EQCA, Marriage Equality of California Fresno Chapter led by spouses Baltimore Gonzalez and Robert Flanagan. The featured speaker of the evening was Robin Tyler, Executive Director of the Equality who collected $750.oo in donations to go towards the changing of the laws that are currently in place in regards to pedophiles.  The Equality, is working nationally to help communities organize rallies or protests regarding marriage equality for LGBT people.  Robin offered a hilarious twist of humor that included jokes about the LGBT Community and her past endeavors throughout her 66 years in this world.  Robin was a little rough around the edges, with a humorous heart.  Approximately 60 people attended, which made for a cozy & quaint atmosphere with rose pedals spread around heart shaped candles as centerpieces on each table.  Robin offered a historical view on the Gay rights movement that was extremely powerful!  A huge thank you to CCA, Sue Stone, president of CCA, Robin MGehee, Events Coordinator, CCA, Ron Wilson, (CCA Board Member) and to all of those who contributed to this successful event.
