Ray Hill kicks off campaign for Texas House with YouTube videos

As previously reported by Houstini Ray Hill, the iconic and iconoclastic Houston LGBT activist, announced this year that he would challenge ten-term incumbent state representative Garnet Coleman in next spring’s Democratic Primary. Hill is running what he calls an “unfunded campaign,” relying on social media and support from community members to get his message out.

We haven’t heard much about the campaign since Hill filed at the beginning of the month (perhaps he’s been distracted by his recent arrest during an attempt to prevent the HPD vice squad from harassing strippers), but Hill seems to have gotten back into the campaign saddle, releasing two YouTube videos about his campaign and why he thinks he’s the best choice to represent district 147 (they can be viewed after the jump). The audio’s not the best (tip: taping next to a roaring waterfall does not produce the best sound), but in both videos Hill expresses his belief that the common people of the district will vote him into office.

Jane Lynch Presents Her At Home, All-Male Cheering Squad

The Glee star shows up in the pages of More magazine with her cheerleaders, who are at least wearing matching uniforms.

Lynch gets reflective in the accompanying interview, but still manages to throw in a joke. She had this to say about her partner who she married this past summer: "I'd never dated anyone that I wanted to marry. I didn't think it was going to be out there for me. But the minute we were married, I felt the difference. I felt like I am no longer alone." She added, "I got married – and I married a doctor!"

Another shot from the spread, AFTER THE JUMP.
