GIVEAWAY: Tickets to Stand Up Proud comedy show at the Improv on Wednesday

On Friday, you may have read about comedian Shawn Pelofsky who may be a Jewish straight girl, but will out gay “the gayest man in the room.” She and queer comedian Thai Rivera come to yuk it up at the Addison Improv on Wednesday with trans comic Dina Martinez as the MC for the night. Pelofsky was even kind enough to offer up a pair of tickets to one lucky Dallas Voice reader.

Just email us here with Make Me Laugh in the subject line and your name and number in the body and one winner will be selected to head north for some major hump day laughs.

Another gay day at the State Fair? Sorta kinda

As the State Fair winds down, the countdown is on to closing time on Sunday. But between now and then, there is lots to squeeze in. Fried Frito pies and corn dogs must still be had. And if you find the fried s’mores, tell me where they are. They seemed to have moved from their regular spot.

The unofficial official gay day was last weekend and we guess it went OK. But if you need some more fellowship and family, the Dallas Bears are heading out to the Fair on Saturday. The group put an open invitation out on Facebook to join them at noon at the main gate. But by the looks of the RSVPs and one guy’s comment, I imagine they are hoping for a few more to say yes:

Norman Come on there has to be more then just five of us going! Actually six I’m bringing a buddy with me.

In other bear news — which is really leather news but by the looks of it, bears fit in — the L.A. Eagle screened a preview of the upcoming movie Jackass 3D with star Johnny Knoxville in tow. The best part of it is they made it into a trailer for the flick. Yeah, Knoxville seems to know how the show plays up some major homo-eroticism when he talked to Vanity Fair.

“We always thought it was funny to force a heterosexual MTV generation to deal with all of our thongs and homoerotic humor. In many ways, all our gay humor has been a humanitarian attack against homophobia. We’ve been trying to rid the world of homophobia for years, and I think gay people really dig it too.”
