Francisco Lopez is the executive director of Pride. Francisco grew up in El Centro California . His mother was Russian and his father Mexican. The imperial Valley is the most anti Gay voting area in California. As early as kindergarten he knew he was different and strongly identified with the girls in his class. When Francisco was in junior high his mother left his father for a women. His father was homophobic and no doubt his wife leaving him for a women added to his anger.
