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

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.

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!
