Gay Texas Teen Gets Emotional Surprise From Davey Wavey

Watch LGBT YouTube Star Davey Wavey’s Emotional Surprise For An LGBT Teen From El Paso, Texas.

(HOUSTON) The hottest thing on YouTube these days, Superstar Davey Wavey, made a special trip to Texas recently to meet a very special fan and surprise him with the most amazing gift.

Team Wavey and Drag Race gal-pal Alaska ThunderFuck teamed with Pure for Men to surprise ‘Angel’, a 6’4”, makeup-wearing, a nineteen-year-old gay boy from El Paso, Texas.

Angel, a superfan of both Wavey, and Thunderfuck; traveled to Houston to be surprised on stage in front of thousands at Houston’s Pride Festival.

“As you can imagine, his life hasn’t been easy. So we decided to surprise him with his own float in the Houston Pride Parade,” Wavey said via his Facebook page.

Working with Houston Pride and in conjunction with Pure for Men, Wavey and Thunderfuck were able to pull off the biggest surprises ‘Angel’ had ever been dealt, an opportunity to be himself in front of nearly 750,000 people as he rode in the parade aboard his own float.

“I often get emails from queer people in smaller cities and towns who don’t have a lot of community,” Wavey told HuffPost in an email. “They can feel alone, isolated and like they don’t fit in ― that’s especially true if you’re 6′4″, from Texas and walk around with a full face of makeup.”

Chick-fil-A Rolls Out Delicious 'Family' Style Meal

Chick-fil-A Rolls Out Delicious ‘Family’ Style Meal With Mac And Cheese, Baked Bacon Beans!

(HOUSTON) The anti-LGBT Chick-fil-A has announced plans to introduce family-style meals that include two new delicious looking sides — mac and cheese and bacon baked beans — in three cities starting Monday. (Thankfully Houston is not one of them) Sadly, San Antonio, Texas is…

The new anti-LGBT meals start will start at $29.99 and include one entree, two sides, and eight mini rolls to serve four people. Chick-fil-A’s new meals are meant to draw more customers during dinner, according to Matt Abercrombie, Chick-fil-A’s menu development manager.

The anti-Family-style entree options will include 30 chicken nuggets, 12 chicken strips, or four chicken breasts either grilled or fried. (All which Us pro-LGBT love) The horrible, yet most likely amazing side options will include bacon baked beans, a fruit bowl, mac and cheese, a salad, or the superfood side (kale and broccolini with dried cherries, nuts, and a maple vinaigrette dressing).

Chick-fil-A-Rolls-Out-Delicious-Family-Style-Meal-300x225 Gays, We Are In Trouble!As if to let our mouth drool with dread, Chick-fil-A describes their beans as ‘kettle-cooked and slightly sweet, flavored with bacon and brown sugar.’ Adding the mac and cheese is served with a blend of cheeses including cheddar, parmesan, and Romano. Ugh! The nerve!

Chick-fil-A will be testing these new options in North Carolina; go figure! Phoenix and San Antonio until November 18. The feedback will determine if the plan rolls out nationwide!

(Exclusive) Harris County District Attorney Kim Ogg Issues Directive To Law Enforcement That DA’s Office Will No Longer Mandate ‘Field Testing’ For Drug Charges!


(HOUSTON) — A directive released by District Attorney Kim Ogg and obtained by About News informs law enforcement that as of midnight on July 15th, 2017, the Houston Police Department will be permitted to forego field testing in drug-related cases.

Field testing is a widely used method for law enforcement for the purpose of identifying what are believed to be narcotics.  “The change in policy comes as a measure to ensure the safety of officers,” Ogg says in the directive. It proceeds to state that potentially lethal drugs such as Fentanyl and Carfentanil (two highly addictive narcotic medications) pose too high a risk to officer safety.

Houston Police Department’s Media Relations told About News that  “due to the dangers of Fentanyl, it’s [field testing] going to be discontinued …” HPD was unable to ascertain whether the field testing rules were applicable only to Fentanyl and Carfentanil products or all drug cases across the board.

Law enforcement agencies throughout Harris County would no longer be required to perform field tests should they choose to follow the directive. Instead, new criteria would be presented to the Office of the District Attorney Intake Division, including but not limited to: contraband color, contraband texture, the presence drug-related paraphernalia, demeanor of the suspect, and prior arrests and convictions involving controlled substances of the suspect.

Field testing has often been met with criticism, as cases of false positives have led to the arrests of innocent individuals not in possession of controlled substances. These incidents have seen civilians faced with jail time, employment loss, and homelessness.

The Harris County District Attorney’s Office in conjunction with Houston Police Department will be holding a press conference at 3 o’clock on Friday, July 14th to announce the changes to protocol. Click here to read the directive sent from District Attorney Kim Ogg.

The unknown culprit(s) behind the profile use photos released to members of the media after the victims’ murder. The profile used ‘Stephen and Taylor’s’ photos, and would message people [on Grindr] looking to ‘hook-up.’

“It’s one thing to use my pictures to catfish people on Grindr and it’s a totally different thing to use Stephen,” Shirley posted on Facebook after being contacted by people he knew that had been messaged.

“It takes a really f*****d up person to use him when you have to read about his death in order to find that picture.”
