Did you know that Edward J. Olmos' wife is Puerto Rican?

He was very much involved in the Vieques issue here and that's when it became known his "connection" to us.

I thought that the fact he's so active in social issues, it was that which brought him here.

It was his activism and his wife...LOL

A Hawaiian Puerto Rican or from here?

There's a huge Hawaiian community of Puerto Rican extraction in all the islands there, over 30,000 (or maybe more, to be exact).

They've been there forever (for over 4 generations already); speak almost no Spanish, but eat pasteles, listen to aguinaldos in Xmas..you name it!

Not all Puerto Rican communities are the same in the US and this Hawaiian one (being so expensive to keep close ties to the Puerto Rico) have been able to retain something from our culture.

Unbelievable!

In fact, when I did my little research on the main Puerto Rican communities in the US and their differences; I didn't get to the California one.

How is, if any, the Puerto Rican community in California (at least in the area where you're from)?

For starters, is there a specific area in the state known for its Puerto Rican community?

I know that San Francisco does not have one, though the Chicano one (over in the Folsom St. area near downtown is huge) or used to be huge back in '78, when I was living there.

You're right, San Francisco used to have the Presidio military base (near Golden Gate Pk).

My ex lover was an Army captain in stationed in Presidio, when I was living there in San Francisco's Gold Mine area (back in '78).

Great times; Harvey Milk had been recently elected; hate killed him! End of the good times after that; then the AIDS plague (which killed almost all my friends)...

What a tragedy!

You can't even begin to imagine that 80's decade.

Death everywhere I looked.

In fact, I always wandered why on earth did God spared me.

It was in the midst of all that, when I decided that my life was spared for a reason and it had to be in the service of my own GLBTTY community.

And it has been that way since then....

That was the begining of the AIDS epidemic.It was such a difficult and painful time for many who contracted the Aids virus,and those close to them
(family friends)who were there for them every step of the way.So heartwrenching.
