As I wrote in last Friday’s paper, former International Mr. Leather Jeffrey Payne is trying to get funding for his charity, which provides hearing aids and sign translation to the hearing impaired. (Payne himself is losing his hearing.) He’s in the running for a $50,000 grant from Pepsi, but has stalled at 73rd position (it needs to finish in the top 10 to get money). The online contest continues through the end of the month.
If you can, please visit the site and vote for Payne’s charity. Local guy, local charity, local benefactor (Pepsi is based in Plano) and a nice thing to do for the gay community.
