PARTY HAUS

PHOTOS: Dallas Cowboys Giddyup At Boi Thursdays

PHOTOS: The city of Dallas just got a little bit gayer with the launch of Boi Thursdays at Winstons Supperclub in Oak Lawn. A few hundred folk got to get in to a VIP sneak peek on Thursday, but the real party begins when Boi Thursdays starts its regular residency on February 21.

      Nice looking party, but Dallas is still in the Christianist Republic of Texas, where there are few rights for gays and creationism is taught in grade schools. But party on, by all means! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LGBT_rights_in_Texas

      @maxdadmark:

      maxdadmark, i live in texas and i attended grade school here as well. in all the years of public school i attended i never once was forced to learn about creationism. i’m not sure where you or mother jones have been getting your facts from. quit stereotyping, it’s not cute and you come off looking like a fool

      @bamboo_child: Facts are facts. The Texistan Board of Education not only is altering textbooks for your state, but is exporting these to other states who want to alter history and science. It is better to be called a fool by an ignoramus who denies the state of oppression that they live in. I don’t read Mother Jones, y’all. Perhaps they haven’t gotten their way yet, but they haven’t given up. How’s the secession movement progressing?

      @bamboo_child: You might have not been taught Creationism in your days of school. But students these days certainly are. I have Atheist, Universalist, and Rational Thinking Friends and or family with young kids in Texas withdraw them and chose to home school them instead of subjecting them to such brainwashing.

      Not only is Texas doing it, but so has Some of my Home state Louisiana, and our Neighbor Alabama as well. Its rather disgusting. As if some of the southern states already didn’t have poor educational standards as it was. Now they just want to make it worse.

      @wickentower: Thank you. Just because some pretty boys have fun in a night club does not mean that this is a progressive society. I’m not saying that there aren’t socially and politically progressive citizens in Texistan, I’m saying that as a whole, this is a horrid state that has undue influence on national politics. The Texas political atmosphere leans towards fiscal and social conservatism. Since 1980, most Texas voters have supported Republican presidential candidates. In 2000 and 2004, Republican George W. Bush won Texas with 60.1% of the vote. John McCain won the state in 2008. Austin consistently leans Democratic in both local and statewide elections. Counties along the Rio Grande generally vote for Democrats, while most rural and suburban areas of Texas vote Republican. The 2003 Texas redistricting of Congressional districts led by the Republican Tom Delay, was called by the New York Times “an extreme case of partisan gerrymandering”. A group of Democratic legislators, the “Texas Eleven”, fled the state in a quorum-busting effort. Despite these efforts, the legislature passed a map heavily in favor of Republicans. Protests of the redistricting reached the national Supreme Court in the case League of United Latin American Citizens v. Perry, but the ruling went in the Republicans’ favor. As of the general elections of 2010, a large majority of the members of Texas’s U.S. House delegation are Republican, along with both U.S. Senators. In the 112th United States Congress, of the 32 Congressional districts in Texas, 23 are held by Republicans and 9 by Democrats. Both Texistan senators are repugnican, and both Cornyn and Cruz voted against the Violence Against Women Act. And one of your Representatives, Steve Stockman has referred to the President as a “piece of shit” and told him to “suck the barrel” of his gun. He referred to Hillary Clinton as a “piece of shit” and is taking that Ted Nugent (who has said even worse about the President) as his date to the State of the Union Address tonight. Since 1994, Texans have not elected a Democrat to a statewide office. The state’s Democratic presence comes primarily from some minority groups in East Texas and South Texas as well as urban voters, particularly in Beaumont, El Paso, Austin, San Antonio, Dallas, and Houston. So pull your head out of your ass, and consider the possibility that there is more to what is happening in your “republic” besides what you might be reading in your travel brochures and the gay clubs in the metropolitan areas.

      @Cee: Where exactly do you people live that it’s shocking for you to see a black person in a gay club?

      Is it really that bad outside of the tri-state area?

      @Cagnazzo82: What is the “tri-state” area? Is it anywhere near where a black man, James Byrd, Jr. was dragged to death, chained to a truck, by three white men in 1999?

      @maxdadmark: Not sure if your comment is tongue-in-cheek or not (so I’ll err on the side of assuming you’re serious). But yeah, I was referring to the generally NY metro area (including NJ/CN).

      Some of the comments here it’s like ‘oh my god there’s diversity in Dallas!?’.

      I’ve never been to Texas so maybe the gay community there’s a bit more segregated than I previously presumed.

      Dallas continually finds itself as the country and western “southern” step-sister of L.A.
