Funeral scheduled for Albert Mata

Tim Brookover and Albert Mata

Albert Mata, the long-time partner of Houston GLBT Community Center president Tim Brookover, passed away on Monday, Feb. 20.

Albert was a vivacious man. I could always tell if Albert was at an event. His laughter would echo through the room the second I entered, inevitably emanating from the a tight circle of conversationalists over which he was holding court. Sweet, kind and a little naughty, Albert’s energy and gentleness will be greatly missed.

Services for Albert will be held at Bethel United Church of Christ (1107 Shepherd).

Visitation – 6 to 8 p.m. Friday, February 24, 2012
Memorial Service – 4 p.m., Saturday, February 25, 2012

Will Corbin Fisher’s Gay Porn Piracy Crackdown Inevitably Out Gay Teens?

Like movie studios and record companies before them, it's hard to fault companies like Lucas Entertainment and Corbin Fisher for trying to fight online piracy. Both companies have launched legal battles against Internet users trading their porn flicks on BitTorrent without paying for them. (Corbin Fisher went so far as to offer a two-week amnesty period where users could come forward and pay a one-time $ 1,000 fee and lose any risk of a lawsuit.) But with lawyers preparing to go fishing for the names belonging to tens of thousands of IP addresses, are these gay smut companies also about to out gay teens? And adults?
