I generally don’t see that women in our area, have a tough time with equality. In West Hollywood, with 40 percent gay men, there is only one City sponsored event, for gay men only, while there are seven events for women only. ...eight, if you count Love Your Body Day. I can see that it’s amazing in the Sheriff’s Department for a woman to come up through the ranks to become Captain... Even though I don’t attend women’s events, I want to say hooray for Captain Frazer. She’s a great person & a great Captain.
