The California Legislative LGBTQ Caucus, an affinity group for out lawmakers, illuminated the state Capitol dome in rainbow colors Monday, June 21, to kick off a weeklong recognition of Pride Month. Out legislators attended the ceremony, including Assemblyman Evan Low (D-Campbell), the caucus chair, and state Senators Scott Wiener (D-San Francisco), Susan Talamantes Eggman (D-Stockton), and Senate President pro tem Toni Atkins (D-San Diego). Also on hand were Tony Hoang, executive-designate of Equality California; EQCA legislative director Tami Martin, who is also external affairs director for the Capitol LGBTQ Association; Sacramento Mayor Darrell Steinberg; and Alexis Sanchez, director of advocacy for the Sacramento LGBTQ Community Center.
