GLBTube #4

This week's crop-o-clips are all home grown, right here in Texas.

1. Does Dallas have an openly gay mayoral candidate? Does the Dallas Voice produce news videos on YouTube? I think this clip will answer those questions and more.

2. Just last month, Houston’s own Bayou City Boy’s Club threw their infamous, annual Jungle Party to raise money for charity. Watch this clip, and maybe you'll see a neighbor or friend among the Twinky tarzans and the hip-shaking homos. Oh man! is that a Jungle Jack I see?! This segment was produced by HereTV - the people that bring you Dante's Cove and The Liar. Damn... I knew Jack was famous, but I had no idea!

3. A study in contrasts: This clip from KLRU's show Special Session profiles two freshman legislators, Houston State Senator Dan Patrick and Corpus Christi State Rep. Juan Garcia. After so many shameless publicity stunts, Patrick, an embarrassment to all Houstonians, surely needs no introduction. Juan Garcia, on the other hand, is someone our community should be watching. Some of you may remember Garcia's nail-bitingly close victory over Gene Seaman last fall. He's an ambitious Democrat, who's done alright by the GLBT this session. Maybe we can push him to take the lead on some things next time. I love how hard working and humble Garcia looks when profiled next to Patrick.
