Valley LGBTQ Veterans Memorial to receive state designation

Friday, July 20, 2018

As excerpted from KESQ: 

PALM SPRINGS, Calif.- - AB 2439 is a piece of potential legislation which would designate Cathedral City's LGBTQ Veterans Memorial as the state's official LGBTQ memorial. 

AMVETS Commander Thomas "Tom" Swann Hernández and officials from the Palm Springs Cemetery co-hosted an event discussing the progress of the bill today at noon at the American Legion Hall at 400 N. Belardo Rd. in Palm Springs. 

The memorial, which resides at Desert Memorial Park in Cathedral City, would become the nation's first state-designated  LGBTQ Veterans Memorial if AB 2439 passes.
