Transcript HMIkiMil voice THIRTY YEARS OF NEWS FOR YOUR LIFE. AND YOUR STYLE. www.houstonvoice.com Houston athletes are off to Gay Games in Chicago Team Houston members are among 12,000 registered for this year's games By JEFF BISHOP The plane tickets are purchased. The hotel rooms are booked, and last- minute conditioning is underway On June 8, a private pizza party to pick up team jerseys, and to hang out one last time before heading north to Illinois will be held. Next weekend, Team Houston is going to Chicago for the Gay Games, Held every four years, the first Gay Games took place in San Francisco in 1982, bringing together 1,350 participants in 11 sports. The games have increased in size since then: 2006 brings together 12,000 registered athletes from over 70 countries competing in 32 sports. Clear Lake resident, Rex Marzke, 45, will be going to his fourth Gay Games since 1986, to compete in outdoor sand doubles volleyball. Marzke and his partner are flying up on Saturday "I've been playing volleyball since '82. I didn't come out until '85, '86," Marzke said. "I don't drink, and so I ilnn't go to gay bars. I saw this flyer for illeyball league, joined it. and competed in the Gay Games in San Francisco in '86. I now mainly play indoor sixes. My volleyball partner is an old friend, and it's our first sand volleyball in 15 years." Keith Wright is president of Team Houston, the local organization that organized gay teams to compete in this year's Gay Games in Chicago. (Photo by Dalton DeHart) For Deborah de Bram, 45. the atmosphere of the Gay Games is enough to bring her back. Her only trip so far was to Amsterdam in 1998, where she won three medals in tennis: a silver in the Doubles 35-plus mixed, and bronze's in Doubles 35-plus Women and Single 35-plus Women. "1 was with my partner, and we stayed at the host hotel," de Bram said. "In Amsterdam, everywhere we went [gay people] were there. Anytime that you went anywhere the restaurants. the museums, the bars you saw the athletes or the spectators. It was really, really awesome. I wanted to Chicago to try to capture that again." De Bram practices with the Houston Tennis Club, one of the many gay sports organizations in Houston. "The Houston Tennis Club has been around for 26 years," de Bram said. "Quite a few of the guys who have been around since the inception are still playing." The group meets Wednesday and Friday nights from 7:30 to 9 a.m., and holds a clinic on Saturdays from 9 a.m. to noon, he said. Robert Lopez. 38, will be playing wherever his team needs him. must Please see GAY GAMES on Page 4 lYIcltiGr 'strangers* Amy Sedaris gives fans of her quirky TV clique Some big-screen 'Candy' Page 11 Part of the new batch of gay soap characters with thicker plot- lines, Luke Snyder (Van Hansis right) on 'As the World Turns' spins on a dramatic axis as he struggles with a crush on his straight friend Kevin (Karl Girolama) (Photo by Lorenzo Bevilaqua courtesy PGP/television illustration by Justin Winslow) Soap operas continue inclusive, if incidental use of gay characters By ZACK HUDSON "PASSIONS" CHARACTER SIMONE RUSSELL HASN'T had it easy.
