Correcting the gay rights time line. Thank you from Mr. Prime Choice.
Please note that California’s first domestic partnership law took effect in 2000. [Re: “Gay Rights Timeline,” in “Unfinished Business: Middle-America PFLAG waxes as urban PFLAG wanes,” April.] In subsequent years, the law was updated and strengthened with additional rights, but California enacted its domestic partnership legislation in 1999, effective January 1, 2000. We entered a California domestic partnership on January 10, 2000.

From the depths of my heart I want to say thank you so very much for promoting our Mr. Prime Choice Texas 2009 contest [“Not Your Same-Old, Same-Old,” April]. . . . The final total for Mr. Prime Choice Texas 2009 was $7379.15, to be divided between Persons With AIDS Holiday Charities Working Account, LVL PWA Camp Out, and Texas Conference of Clubs. Thanks so very much again in helping me to help others. It is so good to be back home with you all, my Montrose family.

Correction: In the April 2009 issue of OutSmart, Mike Craig, president of Chevron’s GLBT employee group, was mistakenly identified as Mike Collins in a SceneOut photograph.
