Reader offended by reporting, not by anti-gay slurs

Dear Editor, I am appalled at the fact that you took students’ social media posts and made them out to be homophobic. Coming from a lesbian girl, there isn’t a single homophobic student here at SMU. I hate you for portraying SMU as “Nazis” and taking social media posts and quoting them out of context. [...]

Don’t hate on our dancers It’s always hard to be the first one. When BJ’s got the call from Dallas Voice about participating in the first online “Dancer of the Month” feature, we were excited. That excitement and enthusiasm died with the Voice’s June 21 National Pride issue — and quickly turned to anger and [...]

From the looks of his April 5 column in Dallas Voice, “Dressing up the elephant,” poor Hardy Haberman seems frustrated that we can’t return to the days of the Stonewall Rebellion and Harvey Milk, days when activism was a gay man’s civic duty. Unfortunately for Haberman, most younger gay men today no longer feel a personal [...]

A word of caution on marriage I’m a single gay man so one might think that I have no stake in the current discussion of marriage equality in our country. Of course, I beg to differ. I know and love same-gender couples who have proven with their history over the span of time that their [...]

Stonewall should stay neutral in D. 1 Stonewall Democrats’ recent endorsement of Delia Jasso over Scott Griggs in the District 1 Dallas City Council race must be based in something other than the candidates’ commitment to gay rights.  Just like the last election where veteran Angela Hunt was rejected for James Nowlin, this election presented the [...]

FEEDBACK: Where’s the Obama coverage?

Where’s the Obama coverage? My partner and I have been Dallas residents since August 1960, and recently celebrated 52 years of continuing successful enterprise, having achieved national and international renown as arts and antiques dealers and designers. Although we incurred tremendous difficulties in establishing ourselves and our business, we chose to be “out and proud” [...]

Gay Democrat’s letter was offensive

Posted on 28 Sep 2012 at 10:45am

When I hear a gay person is a Democrat and will vote that way, their sexuality having been their sole motivation, I am aghast.  Gene Covington’s recent letter to this paper (Viewpoints, 8/31/12) was as confusing in some places as it was offensive in others and painfully incoherent throughout.  The most troubling thing is that in [...]
