Who is the most influential gay person in North Texas?

"Joel Burns, the first openly gay member of the Forth Worth City Council. He’s a friend of mine and a former neighbor, and I’m glad he’s in the place that he is."

Curtis Smith

"Dallas County Sheriff Lupe Valdez. She’s cleaned up the sheriff’s office and brought integrity back to the sheriff’s office. It was a completely corrupt, good-ol’-boy structure."

Brody Randall
Student

"My boss Matt Miller, the owner of Woody’s bar. He’s very involved in the sports leagues and the Tavern Guild, and he’s given me a lot of great fatherly advice."

Bill Hlafka
Bartender

"Tony Bobrow, owner of the Hidden Door. He influences people to do the right thing and gives a lot back to the community. He gives a lot to charity, and he’s just a really nice guy."

Mike McDermott

"Former mayoral candidate Ed Oakley. I think that said a lot for our city and our community that he was able to do that. We are definitely progressing forward."

Jimmy Pewitt
