From Joe. My. God.
Governor Rick Perry must like the taste of shoe because he’s constantly putting his foot in his mouth. This time with a remarkably oversimplified anecdote about Sam Houston’s reluctance to leave the Union over slavery.
In Rick’s mind, this is the same kind of inspired leadership needed by the Boy Scouts. He calls on the discriminatory organization to resist the forces of “flavor of the month pop culture” that would undermine boyhood, manhood, and ‘Mericanhood.
Side note: Isn’t Perry pro-secession?
I really don’t have anything else to say about this. Or I do, but I would rather not pull out any more of my hair. Video after the jump. Continue reading
Here’s a real contrast to the powerful leadership of Rhode Island’s Governor Lincoln Chafee. As Mayor of a blue city with a significant LGBT population, Mike Rawlings sees an opportunity to take a stand but prefers to sit. Fortunately, the Dallas City Council is forcing him into the fray. Continue reading
Rhode Island Governor Lincoln Chafee has proven himself a remarkable figure in the fight for marriage equality.
In 2004, when the rest of his party was demonizing our community to win an election, Chafee used his position as a Republican in the US Senate to fight the overwhelming tide and support equality. In 2006, he was one of only seven GOP senators to vote against a Constitutional marriage ban, and the only Republican Senator to support marriage equality. After winning the governorship as an Independent, he used his 2011 inaugural address to advance that cause. And now he has proudly signed legislation making Rhode Island the 10th US state and the final state in New England to legalize same sex marriage.
If you missed Governor Chafee’s extraordinary op-ed in the Times, read it now. Continue reading

If this is the sound of summer ’13, I’m going to be a happy boy.
Daft Punk’s first single is out, launching the upcoming album: Random Access Memories.
I love everything about this group. That title, their supremely danceable tunes, technofuturistic costumes and vocals, and the new turn in sound in “Get Lucky.” Continue reading
Not a political statement this time, although I’ll take every opportunity to remind non-Texans that Dallas is a blue town with a tolerant culture and a thriving gay scene. This, however, is a (belated) announcement for one of Dallas’s gayest annual events. The Purple weekend started without me knowing it. I have no excuse except that I’m out of the loop and haven’t ever been to a circuit party in my life. This sounds like a good one, and benefiting an excellent cause. If you’re in town and able, be sure to check this one out. Continue reading
