Monday, May 16, 2011
Inside USD -- Hundreds of women flocked to the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender (LGBT) Community Women’s Resource Center in San Diego’s Hillcrest area to attend a day-long festival of workshops, entertainment and resources at an event called Women’s Fest 2011: Do It Yourself (DIY)! This year’s theme focused on self-sufficiency.
