Our Emcee of this year's Rossmoor Pride Gala is Steve Weir, retired Contra Costa County Clerk-Recorder-Elections Chief, former Concord city council member who while on the city council came out publicly after learning that he was going to be outed. 

In June, 2008 Steve signed Contra Costa County's first same sex marriage certificate, his own, so  he could marry his long-time partner John Hemm.


Cabaret-comic extraordinaire, Roxanna Ward hails from Laguna Beach, Ca. Her engaging blend of piano bar and comedy caused one reviewer to observe, “It’s as if Bette Midler and Steve Allen had a love child.”

A pianist, musical arranger, producer, and conductor (Milwaukee Symphony), Ward has worked with legends Dolly Parton, Laura Nyro, Tennessee Ernie Ford, and Bea Arthur. As a songwriter, she penned the R&B single “Remember Who You Are,” recorded by the late Phyllis Hyman, which reached # 16 on Billboard’s jazz chart.
