Our GLBT Community 
Open Communications site:

This Yahoo site is open to any group or individual that can claim to be a part of our GLBTQ Community.  
Any communication may be posted as long as it is not sexually offensive or does not have explicit sexual photo's. 

(notice:  to join a Yahoo group, you need a Yahoo ID (email addy) to start - then you can change your email setting to receive email from the group at your usual NON Yahoo address.)

History of our first cyber space communications to our membership - short of email and snail mail communications:

YAHOO GROUP SITES CALENDAR OF EVENTS VS. EASY ACCESS ON LINE EVENTS CALENDAR - -  Once upon a time not so long ago - - we depended largely on Yahoo for our special communications needs.  At one time Email was the way on the internet to communicate with our members.  Yahoo introduced their groups and trying to keep pace with new communications methods, we went into the Yahoo Group internet world - lead by past member Doug Martin.  Back in 2004, I took over the duties from Doug to keep the Yahoo Calendar up to date with our monthly events.  It, like most things, has become outdated and hard to access unless a Yahoo ID was used.    

Members Marvin Levison and Davis Palmer each picked up keeping the Yahoo Calendar up to date for awhile but for personal reasons gave up and we have not had any volunteer pick up the Yahoo Calendar so the Yahoo site died on March 15th, 2015.  

Back in 2011, I found an online stand alone Calendar which accomplished everything the Yahoo site provided, without needing a (Yahoo) ID to sign in to view the Calendar.  With the increased use and acceptance of our newer easy to access M.S.N. Calendar of Events, and with the ability of members to receive free "event reminders" emails from that site, a feature which was once the major advantage to using the Yahoo Calendar, we no longer needed the duplication.

The MSN Yahoo communications website and calendar still exist but it is no longer used exclusively by MSN but is a communications media available to any Tucson GLBTQ group that wishes to use it to get the word out to our gay community about their upcoming events.  (The Red Ribbon AIDS Project and the Wingspan Bike group currently are using it. See www.groups.yahoo.com/group/menssocialnetwork2/.)  

If anyone needs help in accessing the Easy Access Calendar or scheduling event reminders from it, please give me a return email so that we can be on the phone and computer at the same time to set it up for you.   
 
Any comments regarding the calendar(s) will be appreciated.   

Now if I could just convince those that still rely totally on snail mail - - - oh well, that is another topic another day -- LOL!!!    Thom
