Transcript Dykes To Watch Out For MOBILIZATION FOR 1993 MARCH ON WASHINGTON UNDERWAY Twenty-five activists from the Texas, Arkansas, Louisiana and Oklahoma region met at the Dallas Gay & Lesbian Community Center on December 15 to select representatives to the national steering committee for the March on Washington 1993 for Gay and Lesbian Rights. The group discussed what issues our region would like to bring before the national committee to form the agenda. Repeal of 21.06, Insurance reform, family issues, hate crimes, AIDS, and Gays in the military were all matters of concern. Structure of the regional organization and local committees was also discussed. Chosen to represent the region in Los Angeles in January were Deb Edler, Rudy Roberts and Vincent Henderson of Dallas and Deborah Bell of Houston. The requirement of gender parity and 50% representation by persons of color were met by this group. There were no participants from Oklahoma or Louisiana at the meeting. It was decided that the group chosen would be interim members with permanent members chosen at the next regional meeting on Feb. l, 1992. Reports from the LA meeting will be on the agenda along with the nut & bolts planning of the region's participation and the formation of committees. The meeting will once again be at the Dallas Community Center. "We plan to have four representatives from our region and four alternates chosen," said Bell. "We really want to see the diversity of our region represented and for the states that weren't present for this meeting to get involved." One of the concerns expressed was the cost of participating should not be a burden for the acti- vists serving on the committee and fund-raising is underway to defray the costs. Persons who would like to help may give donations directly to the representatives or make checks payable to Texas NOW, with the clear designation that it is for the Lesbian Rights Task Force. Anyone interested is welcome to attend the meetings. Carpools and community housing are being arranged for the regional meeting in Dallas. The Pride Week phoneline will take messages concerning the march at 529-6979. "Right now is the time for Houston groups and individuals to get busy planning their involvement with the April 25, 1993 March for Gay & Lesbian Rights in Washington, DC" according to Bell, "if we are going to mobilize the numbers planned," (One million people from around the nation, topping the 650,000 that took part in the 1987 march). "That march was the most empowering experience of my life and I want all Lesbian and Gay people to know the power of our visibility," Bell states. ♦ ♦ ♦ ♦ ♦ ♦ ♦ ♦ ♦ ♦ ♦ ♦ ♦ ♦ ♦ ♦ ♦ ♦!
