Male Dancer Refuses To Dance For Gay Men At Gay Bar!

A Go-Go Dancer Hired By Houston’s F Bar Refused To Dance For Gay Men Right Before Show Started!

HOUSTONMARCH 4 — A dancer hired as part of special event at an LGBT nightclub in Montrose for a Friday night event refused to dance for gay men and appeared ‘upset’ in video captured.

In what F Bar Houston is calling their newest Friday night line-up featuring men dubbed as the sensational side of ‘Magic Men,’ the event kicked into high gear with an amazing opening performance by Houston diva and drag superstar Aria Crawford.

Things got weird off stage and out of crowd earshot – when a male go-go dancer set to perform ‘Magic Men’ opening performance refused to dance for a gay man celebrating his 22nd birthday with a group of ladies.

“This is a gay bar!” Aria Crawford explained to the go-go dancer off stage. The dancer has been identified only as ‘Chris.’

“Are you not comfortable with that?” Crawford asked, and then reinforcing, “Again, this is a gay bar, you have to be comfortable with that!” The dancer refused, and another dancer took to the stage and happily provided a great birthday dance to the gay patron.

When the dancer did perform, as seen in video, he appears to stay clear of men and often seems upset or confused. Even abruptly ending his show by walking off stage and into the middle of the dance floor.

F Bar Houston states they spoke with the dancer and relayed their expectations.

Family Files Federal Civil Rights Lawsuit Against Galveston Sheriff

The Family Of Jesse Jacobs, A Gay Man That Died In Custody Of The Galveston County Jail Have Filed A Federal Civil Rights Lawsuit Against Galveston’s Henry Trochesset And Officials For His Death!


 

(Galveston, Texas) 03/14/16 – On the steps of the United States Federal Court House in Houston; family, friends, and the legal team for Jesse Jacobs announced their filing of a federal civil rights lawsuit against Galveston Sheriff Henry Trochesset and officials after one year of ‘run arounds, no answers, and lack of transparency from officials’.

In the middle of some of the biggest media outlets in the country, lead attorneys U.A. Lewis and Debra V. Jennings outlined details in the federal complaint filed on the one-year anniversary of their client’s death.

The federal complaint accuses the Galveston County Sheriff of having blood on his hands in the death of Jacobs, accusing the Sheriff, his medical staff, and jailers of violating Jacob’s 8th and 14th amendment rights.

“The Galveston Sheriff executed our son.” The father of Jacobs stated to members of the media. “Today is the next step in finding answers.”

According to the complaint, Jacobs started having seizures after four days of incarceration as a direct result of lack of prescribed medication.

Disturbing details in the complaint outline how jail officials placed Jacobs in solitary confinement after he started to show signs of ‘withdrawals’ instead of transporting him to UTMB (University of Texas Medical Branch). The jail did not have a medical unit, as required by federal law.

In the solitary cell that had no water, sink, shower or toilet, Jacobs was found unresponsive, with his matress covered in fecal matter.

“This is one of the worst cases of medical indifference to human life I have ever seen,” said Houston civil rights attorney, Randall Kallinen, “This goes on far more often than the public realizes.”

Jacobs was sentenced to 30 days (would have served only 15) for a DWI in Galveston County in 2015. The family claims the jail staff was provided with a prescription Jacobs needed, and had been prescribed for more than 10 years.

The complaint alleges that’s because the jail officials refused to provide prescribed medications that were imperative for Jacobs, he died.

One of the medical doctors mentioned and asked to provide health care to Jacobs while incarcerated appeared before the Texas Medical Board last week in Austin, Texas ‘steaming’ from a complaint filed by the Jacobs family. Another doctor, Dr. Teresa Becker, has a hearing set for April.

The Galveston County Medical Examiner determined Jesse’s cause of death to be “abrupt discontinuation of long term medication.” Jacobs died one year ago today at the University of Texas Galveston after being transported from the Galveston County Jail.

The family is seeking twenty-five million dollars in the lawsuit.
