Page 17 Christine Burchette wants more diversity and more volunteers for the Texas Lesbian Conference, which comes to Houston in May with a variety of noted speakers. Page 25 ISSUE 1005 ALL THE NEWS FOR YOUR LIFE. AND YOUR STYLE. JANUARY 28, 2000 Inside Page S The killing of James Tolbert, a 24- year-old Mississippi gay man, led to a massive, nationwide manhunt for his alleged killers, and has shaken a quiet gay community. houston Page 15 A magazine publisher calls it political satire; some gays call it offensive. See what a columnist for Inside Houston meant when he wrote that young gay men and lesbians have tender relationships with small vegetables. Page 17 Actor Jonathan Taylor Thomas, who has discarded speculation that he is gay, takes on a challenging role in Showtime's 'Common Ground' as a gay teen in the 1970s who turns to a gay teacher for help after he is sexually assaulted. Radio station quiet after alleged slurs As debate about annual street festival heats up, a producer for KKRW allegedly describes a city councilmember using anti-gay terms by MATTHEW A, HENNIE The producer of a local morning radio program has come under fire for allegedly using anti-gay slurs to describe lesbian City Councilmember Annise Parker during a broadcast last week. Keven Dorsey, producer of "The Dean and Rog Show" on KKRW 93.7, allegedly called Parker a "dyke" and "carpet muncher" during the morning drive-time show on Jan. 21 during a discussion about Parker's involvement with the Westheimer Street Festival. And three days later, the show infused new lyrics to a Crosby, Stills and Nash song that allegedly used anti-gay slurs and called homosexuality a "strange lifestyle." "While it is insulting to me, it is an affront to the lesbian community," Parker said. "There are equivalent terms one would use for other minorities that no other radio station in I louston would use. We don't live in a city that tolerates those kind of remarks." Parker said she has contacted officials at KKRW, but they haven't met her request for a transcript or tape of the Jan. 21 show to verify the alleged comments. After Parker sent a strongly-worded letter on Jan. 26, a station official called to say the matter was being researched. But Parker said she hasn't heard back from anyone at KKRW. Michael Hughes, KKRW's operations director, said that the station has fielded a few phone calls about the comments, but he hasn't listened to the Jan. 21 "Dean and Rog Show." "I have no idea of what, if anything, was said. All 1 know is something was said that offended people," Hughes said in a brief interview with the Houston Voice on Wednesday. Hughes called the comments "disparaging remarks" and said the matter would be investigated. But Hughes could not be reached for further comment at press time Thursday. Dorsey did not respond to a request for comment. Keven Dorsey, producer of The Dean and Rog Show' on KKRW 93.7, has come under fire tor anti-gay slurs he alegedy made about Gty Couriatnan Annise Parker during a broadcast last week. Parker has called on the station to issue a public apology and an assurance that the show will not air anti-gav comments in the future. >■ Continued on Page 15 Fill erup As gay men and lesbians prepare to rally today against Exxon Mobil, a survey of the nation's major oil companies shows mixed results when it comes to gay employees and customers by C.1P PLASTER Organizers of a protest against Exxon Mobil Corp. were scheduled to meet with company officials early today, just hours before a rally in downtown Houston to criticize the company's dumping of policies that specifically protected its gay and lesbian employees. A meeting between company executives. Equality Rally organizers and elected officials, including openly lesbian City Councilwoman Annise Parker, was set for 10 a.m. today, though both sides downplayed expectations for the gathering. By 4 p.m., gay activists were expecting hundreds of people to join a rally against Exxon Mobil in a city park and then a march to the company's Houston offices. Equality Rally organizers said late Thursday that today's meeting will open the door to better communication with Exxon Mobil. The company adopted Exxon's employment policies and benefits during its recent merger with Mobil, which had policies that specifically protected gays from discrimination and offered same-sex domestic partner benefits. Policies of the new company, like Exxon's before it, don't specifically include gay men and lesbians, nor does the newly-created oil giant offer domestic partner benefits. "Company officials said they cannot guarantee there will be any outcome from the meeting, but that it will at least open up the dialogue," said Dan DiDonato, an organizer of today's rallv. A company spokesman said Exxon Mobil often meets with community organizations, and wants to clear up any misinformation about its policies since the merger. "Our policy is clear and straightforward. We do not discriminate on sexual orientation and have established a comprehensive training program to be sure this policy is followed throughout our worldwide organization," said company spokesman Tom Cirigliano.
