As the gay son of a lesbian mother, Malin said
he also understands the importance of protecting
the rights of gays and lesbians to be adoptive and
foster parents. He said he is ready to fight against
social conservatives who want to take those
"The far right is always telling us that the
American family is under assault from activist
judges, and they are correct. But what they aren't
telling is that these are activist judges appointed
by the far right," he said. "I expect them to try
and pass an adoption ban again in the next ses-
sion, and I want to be there to help stop it."
Malin graduated from the University of North
Texas in Denton and worked briefly in sales
before moving to New York to work as an actor.
In 2001, he moved back to Dallas to help care for
his ailing mother and grandmother and became
an independent entrepreneur selling Mary Kay
Cosmetics. Within six months, he said, he had
earned the use of three Mary Kay career cars,
including the legendary pink Cadillac.
Last fall, Malin said, he left Mary Kay to
become an independent business owner with
Ignite Energy, a company that provides low-cost
energy alternatives. Malin said he made the move
because working with Ignite would allow him
more free time to run for the Legislature.
He now lives in the Turtle Creek area with his
partner of three years, Friley Davidson. He
served two tenns on the Dallas Citizens Police
Review Board as an appointee of fonner City
Council member Chris Luna, and was appointed
to the Civil Service Board by fonner Council
member Veletta Lill.
He and his partner are on the advisory board
for the Cattle Barons Ball and are active in the
American Cancer Society, the Design Industries
Foundation Fighting AIDS and the Turtle Creek
Malin also used to perfonn with the Turtle
"When I was growing up, I saw a lot of role
models in the GLBT community. I have always
wanted to be one of those role models," Malin
said. "The bulk of my career has been about serv-
ing other people and giving back in some way.
'To whom much is given, much is expected.' I
have been blessed, and it is my duty to give
something back. That's why I am running for the

Jada pushes the button on her boom box to
start the music of "Dancing Machine" and begins
twirling on her hind legs.
"She stands on her back legs and twirls and
can go the length of the room," Laymon said.
"She goes frontward and backwards and just
Jada, who has been raised with a two-year-old
American bobtail cat named China, exhibited her
talent for dancing at an early age, Laymon said.
"She just kind of did it on her own, and we
enhanced it from there,'' she said. "She's real
Laymon said the excitement of flying to New
York and spending the night at the Dream Hotel
in Manhattan apparently had unnerved Jada. A
rap group spending the night down the hall kept
Jada disturbed all night long, she said.
"They were rapping into the night and carrying
on down there," Laymon said. "She had never
heard that much noise before. She was guarding
the room all night."
Laymon said the day of Jada's big perfonn-
ance she was too tired to get out of bed and tried
her best to sleep in.
"That morning she just wanted to lay and
sleep," Laymon said.
"We had to pick her up
and carry her to Central
The couple used a
baby stroller to trans-
port Jada in the city.
Ross said the pro-
ducers of the
Lettennan show kept
their sense of humor
about the incident,
even though they were
out plane fare and a hotel bill for Jada and her
"They suggested they would like to have her
back again, and they said they would bring her up
early for an extra day to rest," Ross said.
Ross said she and Laymon also understood
Jada just wasn't up to the task that day.
"They're like children," Ross said. "They're
unpredictable. I thought, ok. It was a wonderful
Laymon agreed. "It's like having a child," she
said. "You can't force them. We weren't upset."
If the Letterman producers call for Jada again,
she will go and hopefully will feel inspired to
dance, Ross said.
"Dear God, we hope so," Ross said.
