WE LOST A GOOD ONE
Cathy has been a long time member of Dignity.
Openly lesbian, she was an aide in Mayor
She spent many years volunteering with the
Houston Women's Softball League and with the
Houston Gay and Lesbian Political Caucus. Her
parliamentarian skills were highly respected. As
one of the early board members of the Montrose
Activity Center, Cathy was instrumental in the
establishment of the Gay & Lesbian Pride
Parade. In 1985, as President of the Gay Pride
Week Committee, she worked with the group
which created and distributed the infamous
"Louie Don't Shoot" tee shirts.
A few weeks after marching in the Houston
contingent of the March on Washington, Cathy
was diagnosed with lung cancer. (A longtime
smoker, she quit several years ago.) She passed
away peacefully in her sleep with her spouse,
Carolyn Collins, at her bedside.
SHOOT THE QUEERS
Despite her vocal support of the 1985
lesbian/gay city employment referendum, Mayor
Kathy Whitmire was expected to defeat former
mayor Louie Welch in the 1985 contest. Other
City Council members had drawn stronger
opposition because of their votes in favor of the
gay/lesbian job protection ordinance.
The year following the Jan. 19, 1985
landslide defeat of the ordinance was one of the
saddest in Houston lesbian/gay political circles.
Referendum foes turned back the ordinance by
a 4-1 margin. Not one city elected official
sought the endorsement of the Gay Political
Caucus (now Gay & Lesbian Political Caucus).
The so-called Straight Slate fielded several
candidates for City Council. It was a
But as in good Greek tragedy, hubris
would soon topple the main character. Unaware
that a microphone was already on, Welch joked
when a reporter asked him what he would do
"Shoot the queers!" Welch snapped in
the loudest political farewell reported round the
Not surprisingly, the former mayor still
expected to carry many conservative votes.
Within a week of the remark^ T-shirts
popped up all over Montrose:
Louie, Don't Shoot!
One of the daily newspapers unmasked
the creators, and, there she was, that amusing,
politically correct supervolunteer, Cathy
