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 [...]

Valdez vs. Latham for sheriff “Southern Baptists don’t believe in that.” Don’t believe for a second he won’t use her sexual orientation as a way to turn out religious voters for him if he feels the need. Tyler, via DallasVoice.com “I wasn’t raised that way.” What exactly is Latham implying by this statement? What exactly [...]

Double standard Since the gay community and the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation throw such fits when we feel we have been insulted or slighted (Wanda Sykes starring in a commercial chastising a group of teens using the term “so gay,” Blake Shelton coming under fire for anti-gay comments and most recently Brett Ratner [...]

FEEDBACK: Valuing our human infrastructure

Posted on 08 Sep 2011 at 5:00pm

Valuing our human infrastructure For years, politicians have talked about the under-funded public infrastructure like highways, water lines, sewer systems and basic transportation. There is another infrastructure that is being under-funded in this city and state in particular: our “human infrastructure.” In educational terms, we are regressing. When I was growing up, my school district [...]

FEEDBACK: Elmhurst really the first?

Posted on 01 Sep 2011 at 5:00pm

Elmhurst really the first? Regarding the article, “Elmhurst College becomes 1st to ask about sexual orientation,” in the Aug. 29 issue of Dallas Voice. Three colleges that I know of personally have been asking this for several years. Elmhurst is far from the first to ask about sexual orientation. I applied to law school with [...]

Stonewall Dems still relevant Stonewall Democrats continues to be an important and relevant voice in the civic life of GLBT Dallas. In fact, most candidates seek out the opportunity to interview and screen with Stonewall in election years. If Stonewall were irrelevant, as some seem to imply from recent comments via Instant Tea and elsewhere, [...]

FEEDBACK: Tavern Guild treasurer responds to criticism over gay Pride festival changes

Posted on 21 Apr 2011 at 1:32pm

Clearing up some Festival facts I’m a bit disappointed by the tone of Hardy Haberman’s article on the Festival in Lee Park (“The end of the free festival,” Dallas Voice, April 15). The writer admits up front that he never attended the event. I’m not sure where the nostalgia comes from if you have not [...]
