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 […]

FEEDBACK: Why I’m supporting Kunkle

Posted on 14 Apr 2011 at 3:41pm

Why I’m supporting Kunkle Thank you for the in-depth expose on the three major mayoral candidates (“Decision in Dallas,” Dallas Voice, April 8). While there are different opinions regarding the candidates, David Kunkle is my personal choice. I have watched him closely over the last several years and was so impressed with his style of […]

FEEDBACK: Be above petty squabbles; Open letter to Elba Garcia; Know the facts on PrEP

Posted on 24 Mar 2011 at 5:03pm

Be above petty squabbles I have followed with much interest the recent joint endorsements of municipal candidates by the Stonewall Democrats of Dallas and Dallas Stonewall Young Democrats. A spirited debate is always healthy, and it is good to see this happening, especially with the race for City Council District 14 which features the Stonewall-endorsed […]

FEEDBACK: Cancel DMN subscriptions, Saving Easter in the Park, Tell TCA what you think

Posted on 17 Mar 2011 at 1:26pm

Cancel DMN subscriptions The policy of the Dallas Morning News, which excludes same-sex marriage announcements while printing “traditional” marriage announcements, is discrimination, pure and simple. I just cancelled my subscription to the News, as I do not want my money supporting such discrimination. I urge other News subscribers to do the same, telling the News […]

FEEDBACK: More on District 14, Leppert’s tweet on DOMA decision

Posted on 24 Feb 2011 at 2:47pm

More on District 14 I appreciate your having published my letter in the Feb. 18 Dallas Voice (“Looking at District 14”). And in the interest of fairness, I want to add two more sentences about Angela Hunt. Angela is not just the incumbent, she is a good friend to the LGBT community, standing by us, […]

FEEDBACK: Looking at District 14

Posted on 18 Feb 2011 at 10:12am

Looking at District 14 This spring’s Dallas City Council District 14 race should draw our community into the voting booth in far greater numbers than any prior municipal election. Angela Hunt, the incumbent, announced Feb. 9 that she would run again for her seat. Jim Rogers had previously announced with the stipulation that he would […]

Fox not a credible news source I read with interest the column written last week by Matthew Tsien (“Gay vote for GOP shows change in trend,” Dallas Voice, Nov. 12), formerly public affairs director for the Washington, D.C., chapter of Log Cabin Republicans. I find the statements made by Mr. Tsien to be somewhat incredulous, […]

An open letter to KETK To Bob Brackeen and Callie Wall of KETK-NBC in Tyler: A friend of mine, a fellow journalism professor in Texas, just pointed me toward a clip of your “news” segment, “Will Homosexuality Be the Downfall of America?” I will be sharing this clip with my journalism class as an example […]

Forget “firing” Arkansas school board member Clint McCance or simply “reprimanding” him (“Joel Burns responds to Arkansas school board member who encouraged gays to kill themselves,” Instant Tea, posted Oct. 26). He should be arrested for inciting violence. He doesn’t understand the uproar because he actually does not believe gay people are “real” people. That […]

Many questions on Club Dallas raid I just read John Wright’s article about the recent raid at Club Dallas (“11 arrested in raid at Club Dallas,” Dallas Voice, Oct. 15). What is not clear to me is this: What exactly was the “complaint” that was filed with Dallas Police Department? I did not read this […]
