Issue: July 20, 2017

Hello Readers!

Welcome to this Week's Reno News & Review.

Northern Nevada Pride is this weekend—check our weekly calendar for details—so we asked some members of the LGBTQ community what's been on their minds lately. For this week's feature story, we got to know a couple of people in the transgender community and learned about what the local health care landscape looks like from their points of view.

Also in this issue, Special Projects Editor Jeri Chadwell-Singley brings us up to speed on the reunion of local band Pushbox; Jessica Santina, our theater critic, takes us backstage to meet the craftspeople who help the local theater scene thrive; and News Editor Dennis Myers explores a legal contradiction around Attorney General Adam Laxalt's announcement that he allocated funds for a new program at the University of Nevada Medical School.

If you haven't yet voted in the original Best of Northern Nevada poll, now is an excellent time. Start here:

As always, we sure appreciate that, week after week, you pick up the RN&R, write us, call us, argue with us, praise us, and help keep the conversations going about Reno news and culture.
