Glen Maxey is the most important, courageous leader of the LGBT movement in Tx history, and his book is a fantastic read--it reads almost like a detective thriller. Maxey clearly has a vast network of connections in the gay community that no ordinary journalist could hope to match. The direct evidence he recites is strong (though, as he says, it's still hearsay)--the stories of the gay hustler and the Craigslist guy are amazing. But the circumstantial evidence is overwhelming. After reading the book, I'm convinced. I'm sure that some readers will disagree. No sensible American cares if Perry is gay, but given his recent vicious campaign attacks on gays, the real issue is about his profound hypocrisy. As Maxey recounts, at one point Perry approved hate-crimes legislation--but now he promotes hatred. That's the worst sort of hypocrisy. Last point: Maxey's description of the national press collapse on this story is one of the most interesting parts of the book, but downright depressing. What does this entire episode say about journalistic ethics and standards? This is an important, provocative book. - CV

I have known some of the persons mentioned in this book for up to 50 years. I don't know about all the facts in Glen Maxey's ebook, but I do know that he has them right about those people I know. I personally wouldn't care whether Perry was gay or not except for his trying to rally his supporters around anti-gay bigotry. Thank you, Glen Maxey, for putting out the truth about the man.

A well written document, and oddly, as a lifelong Texan, this actually gave me some compassion for Perry, the man. While it is heresay, and I would like to be fair, I also believe this is one of the instances of a hell of a lot of smoke indicating a fire. I have known Glen Maxey as a man of integrity and courage for over twenty years and his authorship gives great weight to this book. Having lived with Perry's governership for several years, I would not have thought compassion was possible. That said, Perry, the lying hypocrite, becomes more of an issue. Arrogant, and more than a little dim, he is an embarrassment, as well as a dangerous man to empower.

Tittilating. Read it and decide for yourself - and have fun figuring out the real folks behind the pseudonymns! Some are fairly transparent to those who know Texas politics, and some are well-known in their own right.

I picked this book up and could not put it down until I was finished. Glen Maxey has told the true story our Texas and National Press has been too cowardly to print. A shocking revelation that yet another so called conservative values politician has been fooling and misleading his core supporters his entire career. This is the tale of perhaps one of the most offensive hypocrites in politics today who uses the persecution of gay people to further a national political career while indulging in the sexual favors of those he persecutes. A must read!

Buy this book now! There have been many, many, many, many rumors about Rick Perry's so-called private life. Many gay rumors. Many rumors of affairs with women.

I live in Austin, TX and there are thousands of people here who are convinced these so called *rumors* are true.

Rick Perry is the same guy who was autographing Bibles in South Carolina a few months ago. He is the same guy who had a presidential prayer rally and often acts all holy and righteous.

Rick Perry is a very anti-gay politician; just witness his recent ad in Iowa.

Read this book and decide for yourself. Glen Maxey, myself (a libertarian activist) and Rick Perry all live in Austin, TX. Here is what Glen Maxey, one of the top gay activits in Texas has to say:

"Has Rick Perry had sex with men? Personally, I believe he has. The strength and volume of stories and witnesses are to me very, very convincing.

No one in Texas knows the gay community better than Glen Maxey. This book is an historic picture of being gay in Texas and an exploration of being dazed and confused as Perry has been. Bravo Glen for tracking down this tale. A really great read!
