Transcript WDXE N STEIN a feminist bookstore On the corner of Richmond and Roseland looms a two-story, wood frame house, whose tall white pillars reach out to the gay community. The name Wilde TNf Stein displayed in proud letters across the face of the building salutes two well-loved authors and encourages us to come and browse in the bookstore on the first floor. Owned and operated by Charles Gillis and Ken Cyr, Wilde fNf Stein is the only bookstore in town whose purpose is to serve the lesbians and gay men of the community. Charles told us, "When I was young, the only information I could find on being gay was in Crime magazines in the back of a drugstore." Since that time, Charles has dreamed of establishing a center where positive, relevant material could be available to everyone. Wilde fNf Stein has become this center, emerging as a community resource with countless periodicals, records, and books. The large room in the back of the bookstore serves not only as a readily available meeting place for groups and organizations, but also as a well-stocked library of gay books and publications from around the country. Wilde fNf Stein was a long time in developing. Charles and Ken met in Fort Worth and became politically active in the community. Because of that activism they became, as far as they know, the only two people ever to be excommunicated from the MGCR in Fort Worth. The situation became worse when Charles, after a productive nine years at his job with a local utility company, was released on the grounds that he was "not working out." At the encouragement of old friends and the promise of opportunity, they moved to Houston two years ago to make a fresh start. After arriving in Houston they pooled their energies and opened Wilde fNf Stein last year and will celebrate its one year anniversary during Gay Pride Week f78. Because the bookstore is not yet self- supporting, Ken & Charles both maintain full-time jobs and work the store at night and on weekends. At the beginning of the year, they enlisted the aid of Hank Bonney who manages the store during the day so it will be more accessible to the community. (The hours are from 12:00 noon to 9:00 p.m.), Ken sums up his philosophy and that of the bookstore by saying, "We make the resource materials available so that people can make up their own minds. The only way to implement change is through education. -Sherry and Claire January/February 1978 TT
