Last week I wrote about an alleged sexual assault involving a man who reported to police that he was sexually assaulted by two men after they placed a drug in his drink at Station 4. I followed up with Dallas police yesterday to find out whether any additional information was available. Here’s what Sr. Cpl. Kevin Janse told me:
“Detectives have tried three times to get ahold of victim. They have been unsuccessful and he is not returning calls. So there is nothing new to report.”
As is standard in sexual assault cases, police are not releasing the alleged victim’s name, so we have no way of trying to contact him. Regardless of whether this person’s account is true, it raises an interesting question: How common is “date rape” in the gay community?оптимизация сайтов под поисковики
Lone Star Ride Fighting AIDS celebrates its 10th aniversary this year, and LSR organizers want a bigger, better event than ever before. That means more riders, more volunteers and more money for the three LSR beneficiaries — Resource Center Dallas, AIDS Outreach Center of Tarrant County and AIDS Services of Dallas.
But cycling can be expensive; the kind of bike you need to ride 165 miles in two days doesn’t come cheap. And that’s where the Lone Star Locker comes in. Folks who want to ride but can’t afford to go get a road bike — or who don’t want to drop that kind of cash until they are sure they’re going to stick with cycling — can get a loaner bike from Lone Star Locker. And if they raise at least $2,000 in donations for LSR, they can keep the bike.
But LSR needs bikes for Lone Star Locker. And you can help, even if you don’t have a road bike to donate. All you have to do is head to head over to the Rose Room at Station 4 this Friday night, April 16, for the Passion 4 Fashion Show benefitting Lone Star Locker’s loaner bike program.
The event is sponsored by Caven Enterprises Inc., Dallas Voice, Saks Fifth Avenue, The Linicomn Agency, Belveder Vodka, Spotlight Catering, Ambient Stage-Lighting, Inc., 77 N Motion, Kirk Watson & Neil Patel and The UPS Store at Lemmon and the Tollway in Highland Park.
Several blogs — including Queerty and Joe.My.God. — are reporting that Apple has pulled Grindr from the iTunes Store. According to Wikipedia, Grindr was removed from the app store last night at midnight. It’s unclear whether the removal is related to Apple’s recent purge of “adult” apps, and some are already alleging homophobia. If you already have Grindr on your phone, it’s still reportedly working — you just can’t download it. This development comes as Grindr was preparing to celebrate its first anniversary, with parties around the globe between March 23 and 29. One of those parties was set for Station 4 on Friday night.
UPDATE: Looks like this is a false alarm. Queerty is now reporting that the founder of the Grindr app, Joel Simkhai, said it will be available again soon. And sure enough, it’s back in the app store as of 12:48 p.m. Dallas time. Publicity stunt?online mobiseo оптимизация это
I just read that Station 4 will be bringing in aerial artist, Vincent Packard for a special show this Saturday. He is part of the Los Angeles outfit,Vertigo Posse. They look like the entire aerial acrobat section of Cirque du Soleil and by the looks of their videos, astounding to watch. Packard goes solo in this video which should preview what he’ll be doing at S4 this weekend.
R&B/dance diva Deborah Cox turned it on Saturday during Caven’s Carnivale 5 celebration. Thanks to YouTube poster ilovedancemusik for capturing some great video of the gig. He has three others from the show.
Here, Richard Curtin introduces Cox opening with the Phil Collins hit “Something Happened on the Way to Heaven.” By the looks of it, she played that show like she was at Nokia. We like that kind of fierceness.
The peeps at Station 4 sent a Facebook message this morn to members of its group announcing tonight as Facebook Free Friday . That means, members 21 and up will get in free with a password. And if there’s no cover, that means perhaps an extra drink for the night. Better yet, it relieves the wallet a bit from all that holiday spending.
So when you head in tonight, just utter the words “Dance. Floor” and you are in. No word if this is an ongoing thing but they do say “phrase for this week.” Guess you’ll have to find out by being a group member.siteпродвижение сми
This week, we featured the L.A. based Perry Twins DJ team. They’ll be spinning tonight at Station 4 but their big event is tomorrow’s “Heat of the Night” celebrating the Legal Hospice of Texas’ 20th anniversary. That’s already a busy weekend but I just heard they have one quick gig before all that. Doug and Derek Perry will be at JR.’s Bar & Grill tonight for a meet and greet from 6–8 p.m.
