Transcript t THE WAND September 1995 Vol. 12, No. 9 Womynspace Activities/Networking Directory An MCCR Tradition... -p—p Sponsored by the Music Ministry of MCCR Lynn Lavner will perform in the MCCR sanctuary on Saturday, September 30 at 7:00pm. In a world where "going mainstream: has become the end of the rainbow for may performers, Lynn Lavner happily remains a minority of one. "My songs and humor are drawn," she says, "from my own experiences as a short, left-handed Jewish lesbian from New York". And the quick-witted Lavner, who stands only five feet tall, performs in black leather. Billed as "America's most politically- incorrect entertainer," Lavner has taken her original brand of music and comedy to 40 states and five foreign countries ("six in you count Provincetown") bowling over audiences and critics alike. For more information, call MCCR at 861-9149. Community Forum set to discuss Pride Parade Issues Sunday, September 17 Lesbian-Gay Pride Week 1996 elects co- chairs, officers reports the Houston Voice in the Aug. 18 issue. Elected as co-chairs for L/GPW '96 were Terry Vega, who served on the executive committee as parade chair in 1995 and Howard McHale, previously involved with various local gay and lesbian broadcasting/media collectives. Community observers expect an interesting and eventful planning cycle for the city's 16th annual observance. For the past two years,organizers have been besieged with suggestions to change the scheduling of the parade, citing Houston's searing summer shear and it's health effects on some parade participants and observers, particularly people with AIDS. The Pride committee has scheduled a community forum in September to discuss the parade and other Lesbian/Gay Pride Week issues. The intensive meeting, at which organizers hope to gain input from a broad- based pool of community members, is set for Sunday, Sept, 17 1:00-5:00pm at the Harvey Hotel. An outside moderator will facilitate the discussion. Houston Women's Festival Planned for Saturday, October 28 October is looking like a great month for Texans who enjoy women's music Early in the month, the Lone Star Women's Music Festival is scheduled to take place on the Guadalupe River in the Texas hill coiintry. They offer three days of music, workshops, comedy, and camping. Later in the month. Man Chapin Carpenter is coming to Houston - well, actually the Woodlands. Look for her stimulating performance around the middle of October. On the last weekend of October, look for the first annual Houston Women's Festival to take place on Saturday 28th. The festival looks very exciting with mam activities taking place during the afternoon and wrapping up in the evening with an ama/ing concert featuring a wide selection of musicians, from a few Houston groups as well as a headliner or two from Austin. The concert is destined to be a high energy empowerment event topping off the festival on an upbeat note. In addition to the music, the festival is planned to provide for the display of works from women painters, sculptors, and performance artists. Also, booths are being rented to individuals and businesses who w ish to display their crafts, products, and sen ices. To accommodate all of these events in one location, the festival is being held on an entire city block, south of downtown Houston, with easy access from the Gulf Freew ay. The main concert hall is an aircraft hanger from Galveston which was taken apart beam by beam, placed on a barge and then shipped up to Houston for reassembly at it's present location. The acoustics of this venue promise to be powerful. The festival is being ambiguously produced by three local women. Each woman has a business that she has committed to sponsor the festival The name of Planet Earth Productions should be familiar as a source of exciting women's entertainment in Houston since 1990. producing shows of Monica grant, Deidre McCalla, and most recently. Girls in the Nose and Jamie Anderson. The experience that PEP brings to the festival is almost certain to guarantee an event that is not to be missed. In addition to PEP., Fern TV should also be a familiar name Fern TV has filmed, edited, and produced many excellent programs regarding women's issues and interests. Fern TV is earned by the local access channel Possibly, look for the festival to appear in a future episode. The third partner. Active Imaginations, is new to the Houston area, and promises to bring a breath of fresh air to the festival. Active Imaginations is in the business of designing and distributing environmental conscious-raising t- shirts. Their specialty shirts profile stunning representations of endangered animals, birds, reptiles, and fish along with a narrative on the history and the future of the featured creature. This sensitivity to the environment clearly has connections to the threatened survivability of women, feminists, and lesbians - an issue explored by the festival itself. Active Imaginations will also be designing a one-of-a-kind festival t- shirt which will be available at locations around the Montrose. Frankly, enough can't be said about the good things that the festival hopes to accomplish and promote. Tickets go on sale at the first of October. Mark vour calendars for this event.
