  Rob Schlein column amounted to hate speech; DV should apologize I was shocked to see the misleading headlines on both the front cover and page 6 of your June 15 issue indicating an “evolution” in the “platforms” of both major state political parties. I was then quite distressed to find page 15 of the [...]

Stop stereotyping bisexuals I read with interest Dallas Voice’s interview with John Irving (“Our best gay ally, in one person,” May 11), especially given the subject matter of his most recent novel. However, I was dismayed at the interviewer’s characterization of the novel’s protagonist, as “legitimately bisexual — not merely experimenting.” I didn’t realize that [...]

While I am not a member of Dignity, I am gay Roman Catholic and felt Phyllis Guest article titled “Efforts to resurrect local Gay Catholic Group are misguided” was both unnecessary, and showed a lack of a broader understanding of the Diversity of the LGBT Community.

Why is the Voice treating gossip as news? Let’s take a page from an eighth-grade government textbook: In the United States of America, our justice system operates on the principle of innocent until proven guilty. Roughly speaking, it means the burden of proof rests on the accuser. Sadly, it seems more and more these days, [...]

World peace, a new leather jacket and a healthy dose of resoluteness top this list of Christmas wishes Hardy Haberman Flagging Left I received a most unusual early Christmas gift from a couple of dear friends. It is a Christmas ornament, and what makes it unusual is the subject matter: It features a very bearish [...]

Senior housing in Houston I am very interested in this article as I have been dealing with some of these issues here in Houston.  As a 75-year-old gay male who lost a partner to AIDS back in 1995, and then lost my business in 2004, I have had great difficulty in surviving.  Only recently, through [...]

An Open Letter to Rick Perry Dear Gov. Perry, Your antics since you announced your bid for the Republican presidential nomination have already almost pushed me over the edge. You have long-since made me regret having voted for you the first go-round (before seeing the light). There have been multiple times that I have been [...]

Perry’s anti-gay ad in Iowa What does gays serving in the military have to do with prayer in schools or your faith, Gov. Perry? Shamelessly pandering to voters of faith by conflating two unrelated issues is not a recipe for success. Gov. Perry’s attack on service men and women regardless of their sexual orientation is [...]
