Man gets life in grisly killing of gay Houston man

The second of three men who bound, beat and killed a gay Houston man in his home after picking him up from a Montrose bar was sentenced to life in prison without parole for his role in the grizzly crime.

A jury convicted Luis Carlos Rodriguez, 36, of capital murder on Sept. 4, more than eight years after he and two others robbed and brutally murdered Arnulfo Aguilar in his Sugar Land home on May 28, 2006 after they met at the Montrose Mining Company.


TC's raises over $5,000 in benefit for Legacy

By Johnny Trlica
A Turn About show held at TC's Premiere Show Bar on Saturday raised $5,962 for Legacy Community Health.

In a Facebook post by the bar's employee, My Key wrote: "Well we did turn about at my job where guys turn into girls and girls into guys it was a blast we raised 5,962 dollars and that all goes to the legacy health clinic to help out those who need health care it was super fun and crazy glad I did it Lol never knew I made a pretty girl lmao oh well Lol"

TC's owner Tim Pugh had pledged to match the money raised by the performers during the show, helping to bring the total to the whopping amount.

Legacy is a full-service, Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC) that identifies unmet needs and gaps in health-related services and develops client-centered programs to address those needs. A United Way-affiliated agency since 1990, it provide primary care, dental care, vision services, behavioral health services for adults and children, family planning, health promotion and community outreach, wellness and nutrition, and comprehensive HIV/AIDS care.

Legacy's team of health care professionals-physicians, nurse practitioners, psychiatrists, ophthalmologists, optometrists, social workers, nutritionists, and nurses-tailor services to meet the needs of each patient regardless of age, sex, race/ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender identity, or ability to pay. For more than 30 years, this Houston area institution has been treating marginalized, indigent, and under-served Texans through a holistic approach to health care that promotes optimal health and wellness.

A dad’s surprising response to his gay son’s heart wrenching ‘coming out’

Student, University of Houston

My name is James Alexander. I’m 20 years old and reside in a conservative area of Texas where I was born and raised. Throughout my childhood I could tell that I was different. I was quiet, unsure of myself, socially anxious at most times.

Before I even connected the word “gay” with two men liking each other, the other kids already had made it part of their vocabulary and readily let me know that I was. However, it didn’t really hit me until middle school when the guys started liking girls and I was stuck with the realization that I wasn’t at all interested in girls – my interest was strictly men.

Montrose Dims with Loss of John Danielson

The Montrose Center announced the death of John Danielson with this post on their wensite:

On Saturday, September 13, we lost one of our dearest friends. John Danielson was a shining light here in Montrose, and we had the privilege of knowing him for the last 14 years. In 2001, we first crossed paths when he opened his beautiful residence — the slate blue one on Hawthorne — for our guests at Bringin’ in the Green. John, and his home, were decorated from top to bottom in St. Patrick’s Day finery, including the lions flanking either side of his entrance!
