Transcript HOUSTON VOICE • DECEMBER 31, 1999 ] year in review AROUND HOUSTON 1999 >■ Continued from Page 3 mission statement. "It shows that in Houston, we are moving along with the national trend towards inclusion,'' said caucus president Carl Smith. Longtime transponder activist Phyllis Randolph Frye said the unanimous vote was in a word, "glorious." She said her quest for inclusion in the caucus began over nine years ago, and members wouldn't even discuss the issue. Mayor, police chief decry Gay bar 'inspections' during Pride Inspection of Houston gay bars should not be done during Gay Pride celebrations, Police Chief CO. Bradford ruled following his internal investigation as to why three popular gay nightclubs were inspected June 24. He called the inspections of JR.'s, 611 Hyde Park and Cousins "inexcusable." One of the bars was inspected twice in one evening. Mayor Lee Brown said he has concerns the inspections were not better handled between the two agencies conducting them—HPD and the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission (TABC). August Texas court tells mother she can't take daughter to gay church A Texas court ruled in a custody case that a child could only attend a "mainline" church with her lesbian mother. The parents are of different faiths—a Christian mother and a Jewish father—and part of the divorce proceeding was about determining what faith the child would be raised in. The father objected to the mother's decision to take her child to the predominantly gay Metropolitan Community Church. The Texas Court of Appeals agreed with the father, holding that only "mainline churches would be utilized by the parties for the religious training of the child," and listing which Protestant denominations qualify as "mainline." September Black community declares HIV state of emergency African-Americans in Houston are fighting back against the number one killer of its youth—AIDS. According to data from the national HIV Prevention Conference held this month in Atlanta, AIDS is now the number one killer of young blacks in America, moreover, death rates in the African-American community are 10 times those in the white population. Locally, the statistics are equally as sobering. Increased publicity within the black community about HIV/AIDS has prompted some progressive African-American civic leaders in to call for action. The prevalence of infection rates in this community is now being discussed in the press, via presentations in front of political leaders and in the organization of a town hall meeting. October Gay business expo draws record crowds Some 5,000 people attended EMPOWER '99 at the George R. Brown Convention Center, setting a record attendance and helping the event meet most of its goals this year, organizers said. A church service organized by a handful of gay and gay-friendly churches—including Bering United Methodist Church, Grace Lutheran Church, Interfaith Ministries, Metropolitan Community Church of the Resurrection and Maranatha Fellowship MCC-closed the daylong event. "They did a wonderful service of health and wholeness," said Coy Tow, an EMPOWER organizer. "They had a wonderful procession with all their banners down the middle aisle at the end of the day It was a wonderful way to end a day of celebration. The whole day was truly like a festival." November Open lesbian wins second term on city council Houston's first openly lesbian city council member easily defeated her challenger on Election Day, but three gay men hoping to join Annise Parker on the council failed to make it into the run-offs that will decide their races. Parker was among a handful of gay and lesbian candidates that did well in elections this week across the country. "Although I had anticipated the win, I'm glad to have job security for the next two years," Parker said. "I'm very glad the election is over." Annise Parker, Houston's first openly lesbian city councilwoman, was elected to a second, two-year term in November. Jury awards former dental professor $448,000 in harassment suit Former dental professor Luis Mota was awarded $448,000 on Nov. 8 after a federal jury found that the he was sexually harassed by the man who was at the time the acting dean of his department. The jury also found that Mota's employer, the University of Texas Houston Health Science Center, failed to take prompt action to stop the harassment, then retaliated against Mota by firing him when he com- >- Continued on Page 9 Worship with us in 2000!
