SAGA Club hosts second drag show of the year

By Angie Escalante

Drag queens sparkled, giving their all dancing and lip-syncing through the cafeteria for Riverside City College students. Hollers, rhythmic clapping and laughter could be heard all around as everyone expressed their exhilaration.

The event was hosted by the Sexuality and Gender Acceptance Club (SAGA) to provide a space for the members of the LGBTQIA2+ to be themselves on campus.

Anita Rose, the drag show host, cracked jokes and hyped up the crowd in between sets. She poked fun at the other queens when introducing them.

Outgoing editor-in-chief Leo Cabral bids farewell

By Leo Cabral

Becoming the editor-in-chief during a publication’s centennial has been a substantial opportunity.

I have watched Viewpoints shift and evolve with each new editor-in-chief since spring 2019 when I joined as a staff photographer.

I hadn’t even thought about applying for the position until after I was promoted to managing editor the following semester. I was happy to help out in any way because I found a program with other people who shared my passion for journalism.

The best thing about being on staff was all the reporters and editors that worked endlessly to ensure the paper ran as smoothly as possible despite many Adobe InDesign crashes and late night breaking news writing sessions.



RCC opens first LGBTQIA2+ student hours

By Alexandra Ugale Filarca

Riverside City College faculty members, Sexuality and Gender Acceptance club (SAGA) representatives and the LGBTQ+ Association for Student Success and Equity (LASSE) reached a milestone in visibility and representation on campus.

RCC celebrated the grand opening of the LGBTQIA2+ student hours May 19.

LASSE and SAGA faced many obstacles in recent years as faculty members and allies struggled to receive the services, student resource center and funding needed to support underrepresented students.

RCC students finally get the chance to walk for commencement

By Mya Castro

For the first time since the COVID-19 pandemic forced schools everywhere to transition to remote education, Riverside City College will be holding an in-person commencement ceremony celebrating graduates from 2020 through 2022.

Students gathered in the Quadrangle on May 26 for Grad Fest, hosted by Associated Students of Riverside City College (ASRCC). Students were able to pick up their free cap and gowns, receive free food, take photos with RCC President Gregory Anderson and decorate their cap.

The pandemic made many high school graduates from 2020 miss out on graduation festivities. RCC student Sofia Morgan graduated from Grove High School in 2020 and will finally experience a real graduation this year.



Opinion: Out and closeted students deserve more safe spaces

By John Michael Guerrero

“Who are you?”

That question continues to plague various people’s minds, especially when discussing gender identity.

It is frustrating how difficult it is to be open and proud of who I am for someone who continues to explore their identity.

On many occasions, I try to talk to others about gender identity, and it becomes highly politicized or even put into a religious context.
