LGBT Protesters To Hold Dance Party Outside Texas Governor’s Mansion

Forget Oilcan Harry’s, Richs, South Beach or any other bar or club. The hottest LGBT dance party probably won’t be in one of those spaces. Instead it will be outside Texas Gov. Greg Abbott’s mansion window.

HOUSTONFEB 21 —Hundreds of people have expressed interest and have signed up to protest outside the Texas governor’s mansion on Thursday in Austin against bills that threaten the rights of gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people.

As of Tuesday afternoon nearly 800 supporters have RSVP’d on Facebook to attend the dance party from 6pm to 9pm on the east side of the Governor’s Mansion at 1010 Colorado St.

Thursday’s event called Queer Dance Freakout at the Governor’s Mansion.

“It’s such a shame it’s been misused for so many years so turning it into a gay bar for a night seems like a proper use of this gorgeous architecture.”

Event organizers say the goal is to show opposition to what is considered anti-LGBT legislation, particularly so-called transgender bathroom bills — Senate Bill 6 and House Bill 1362. The bills would prohibit public schools from letting transgender children use multistall bathrooms that conform with their gender identity. State government buildings also would be barred from creating transgender-friendly bathrooms, and cities and counties would be prohibited from requiring bathrooms that accommodate transgender individuals.

“We say NO to marriage equality limitations. We say NO to old men saying what we can and cannot do,” according to the Facebook event description. “We say NO to anti-transgender bathroom bills. We say YES to shaking our asses. We say YES to the freedoms of the body.”

‘Raining Men’ Disco Queen To Entertain LGBT Houston For Super Bowl

‘Raining Men’ Disco Queen Will Entertain LGBT Houston For Super Bowl

‘Raining Men’ Disco Queen Will Entertain LGBT Houston For Super Bowl

The Biggest Disco Queen Set To Perform Live In Montrose Over Super Bowl Weekend.


HOUSTON — JAN 28 — It’s definitely ‘Raining Men’ this Super Bowl Sunday at the popular Montrose LGBT nightclub F Bar Houston. The nightclub has just confirmed with About Magazine that Disco Queen Martha Wash will be performing live on Sunday February 5.

Martha’s voice has dominated the airwaves and embraced millions of people around the world. She is responsible for some of the top-selling, most recognizable pop hits of the 80s and 90s. “It’s Raining Men”, the cult pop classic, is still heard everywhere… the radio, movies, commercials, TV. “Sweat (Everybody Dance Now)” was the highlight of C&C Music Factory’s career, and sold 5 1/2 million copies worldwide.

MARTHA WASH ‘MERGED A GOSPEL VOICE INTO POP AND DANCE MUSIC SEAMLESSLY,’ SAYS RUPAUL

Her musical career begin at the age of two in her parents’ church in her native San Francisco. She went on to study opera and tour Europe while only in high school. Martha became part of a contemporary gospel group called N.O.W. (News of The World) and the mix of classical and gospel training accounts for her seemingly effortless transition, from ballads to dance music to pop.

In addition to her vast career in pop music, Martha has also starred in major theater productions, and has recorded numerous jingles and movie soundtracks (Kiss Me Guide, First Wives Club, Mighty Ducks, Gun Ho).
