Jim Mattox has died

I just got an e-mail from Stonewall Democrats of Dallas and one from Jeff Strater saying that former Congressman Jim Mattox has died. He was 65.

Some of you youngsters might not know Jim Mattox, but anyone who has been around LGBT activist circles in Dallas for 15 years or so knows that the three-term congressman was, as Stonewall President Jesse Garcia said in his e-mail, a good friend to the LGBT community.

Dallas Morning News has an article outlining Mattox’s career here.
