FEEDBACK: Where’s the Obama coverage?

Posted on 02 Nov 2012 at 10:55am

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 […]

They cannot steal my happy I own a small apparel business called You Can’t Steal My Happy. I have been selling online and at local speciality stores around Dallas including Skivvies in Oak Lawn. Thanks in large part to the gay community I have been enjoying brisk sales as many people enjoy the upbeat message […]

  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 […]

White House safe schools conference was groundbreaking

RHONDA THOMASON  | Special Contributor As a retired elementary school teacher from the South, I am inspired by the progress we’ve made in the fight against bullying. Over my 25-year career, I witnessed far too many students hurt by words and actions simply because they were different. Back then, I took the necessary steps to […]

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.

FEEDBACK: Why treat gossip as news?

Posted on 29 Dec 2011 at 3:12pm

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, […]

All I want for Christmas …

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 […]
