The above photo apparently was taken Tuesday night during Stonewall Democrats of Dallas’ monthly meeting at Ojeda’s on Maple Avenue. It was sent to Instant Tea on Wednesday by Daniel Graney, the president of the Texas Stonewall Democratic Caucus who, according to Facebook, is celebrating his birthday today. (Happy birthday, Dan.)
As we mentioned Tuesday, TSDC has named the Dallas chapter the recipient of the statewide group’s Roberto J. Flores Club Achievement Award, which is named for Graney’s late partner.
On Wednesday, Graney announced this year’s other award winners. They are JC Dufresne, a straight ally from San Antonio, who’ll take home the Buck Massey Legacy of Leadership Award, named for the late Buck Massey of Dallas; and Texas Democratic Party Chairman Boyd Richie, who’ll receive the Lone Star Equality Advocate Award.
All three awards will be presented in Houston prior to the state party convention, at a reception hosted by TSDC at the Hilton Americas Hotel from 7 to 9 p.m. on Thursday, June 7.
Graney’s full press release is below.
