Mayor Gavin Newsom appears ready to fight for gay rights anywhere at any time — even if it means a trip to Texas.
The mayor is scheduled to travel to the Lone Star State Saturday to deliver the keynote address at the Dallas Human Rights Campaign's Annual Black Tie Dinner.
Black Tie Dinner Inc. is a nonprofit that raises funds for gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender supportive organizations serving North Texas.
The mayor is also gearing up for an important gubernatorial campaign fundraiser in Los Angeles next week that will be attended by his pal, former President Bill Clinton.
The fundraiser marks an important endorsement by Clinton that political strategists are calling a potential game-changer for Newsom's campaign, which is trailing probable primary foe Attorney General Jerry Brown in fundraising.
