Are you in #Dallas Independent School District 9 or Dallas County Community College District 7?
There’s a special Joint Election coming up for your representatives on May 5 —this Saturday.
These people affect our city’s kids, so have your say.
Sample Ballot (#DISD & #DCCCD are near the end): https://www.dallascountyvotes.org/wp-content/uploads/180505_-Joint-Sample-Ballot_Web.pdf
First of May,
First of May,
Followed by a very #Gay late brunch/lunch, of course.

BBC Asia: “New Zealand has passed legislation to allow people who were previously convicted of #homosexual offences to have their criminal records wiped.”
NZ Justice Minister Andrew Little: “... discrimination against #gay people is no longer acceptable, and we are committed to putting right wrongs from the past.”
It’s always nice to start #Spring outdoors, picnicking in the park; with #drag #queens resplendent in all their #Easter finery, #bears sporting bonnets & bunny ears —plus all the #dogs in the #gayborhood & their humans in coordinating costumes.
However, my backup plan for this Sunday’s #Dallas #Pet #Parade, should the weather turn foul, is to push furniture against the walls, lay down a blanket, & have our friends join us for an indoor picnic.
Rain on my (pet) parade? Won’t even slow us down.
DuckDuckGo's running a fundraiser until April 10, aiming to raise $500k for a slate of organisations committed to keep privacy strong, including Let's Encrypt, the Center for Democracy and Technology, and the Tor Project:
Tony Bobrow, late former owner of the #lgbt community / organizing center (AKA "#gay bar") know as The Hidden Door was memorialized this weekend. Regulars, neighbors, and those wishing to pay their respects came together to trade stories, hold each other, and commiserate over drinks. At the end, our officiating #drag #queen led the crowd outside, and while she led us in singing the country gospel hymn "I'll Fly Away", we released yellow and white balloons into the #Dallas sky. #RIP sir, RIP.

I know #gender and #queer categories don’t always map nearly across cultures, so excuse any inaccurate lingo, but I’m loving kinda-sorta villain drag king Svetlana. He runs around doing spy/assassin stuff in full drag and gets Stalinist agents to think he’s a cis-het dude while his otherwise clueless boyfriend sees right through it. His audiences also seem to know he’s a king and don’t care. Plus, he makes the 1929 Berlin underground club scene look damn fun.
So someone took a crack at making a world map where all the country names were given literal English-language translations. Personal favorites: “Frizzy-Haired Men” for Papúa New Guinea and “I Go to the Beach” for Nauru.
