Texas Lt. Governor Dan Patrick Tells 50 LGBT People Killed in Orlando Terrorist Attack, ‘A man reaps what he sows’

Texas Lt. Governor Dan Patrick who is currently under indictment for felony charges sent at precisely 7 a.m. Sunday Patrick a tweet with a photo with the words of Galatians 6:7. The verse reads, “Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows.”

The tweet and post on Facebook that went out hours after approximately 50 people were killed at a Florida LGBT nightclub has been deleted after the backlash.

The Texas Democratic Party called for Patrick to apologize. Many online are calling for an impeachment of Patrick. Hashtags #ImpeachPatrick and #ShameOnPatrick have been circulating.920x920

Houston Pride Moves to Downtown

It was announced today by the Board of Director at Pride Houston that the entire LGBT Pride celebration will be moved to downtown. The Press lease stated ” The Houston LGBT Pride Festival and Parade will have the same feel as it did along Westheimer in that both will stay connected so you can enjoy the Festival through-ought the day and then experience the nation’s first night-time Parade.” According to officials at Pride Houston, the reason for the shift to downtown is the continuing growth of the parade and that downtown can better handle the parade that has drawn over 250,000 people in the past making it the largest Gay Pride Parade in the southwest.

More information can be found on the Pride Houston’s webpage at https://www.pridehouston.org/pride-news/pride-in-downtown/ the site also includes F.A.Q.’s about the move.

STATE OF THE GAY BARS – SEPTEMBER 2014

State of the Gay Bars in Houston, Texas – Comptrollers Report September 2014

The monthly reports were release on the 23rd for Mixed Beverage Sales in Texas during August. F Bar again is way ahead and it was a very good month for them. Most bars did better than July. Tony’s made it to the #4 spot. Neon Boots managed to pull back up some because of their anniversary week parties. Now that they fired their marketing manager, I wonder what September numbers will look like? But I digress.
