Transcript GAY LEADERS GET WHITE HOUSE INVITE Top news for gays on the national scene is our first official meeting in history with a top-level White House assistant. A two-hour meeting between Midge Costanza, Presidential Assistant for Public Liaison, and Jean O'Leary and Bruce Voeller of the National Gay Task Force, has led to the planning of a more in-depth meeting at the White House on March 26. O'Leary and Voeller will head a ten-member delegation to further discuss issues involving official discrimination in such areas as the U.S. Civil Rights Commission, Defense Dept., Internal Revenue Service, federal prisons, and immigration and naturalization. Jean and Bruce are quite excited about the meetings, something they have been working toward for several years. One of their hopes is that White House support would help break up some of the logjams NGTF has run into in dealing with many federal agencies. We'll be reporting on further developments as they happen. The federal gay rights bill has been reintroduced in the House of Representatives, this time numbered H.R. 451. Rep. Ed Koch (D-NY) will act as lead sponsor in the absence of Bella Abzug, who lost her bid for re-election. In the Senate, Sen. Alan Cranston's office is preparing a different version of the bill. In contrast to the comprehensive House bill, the Senate bill would cover only employment discrimination against gays. The rationale is that it would probably be easier to pass this limited version. In addition, the Senate bill would place responsibility for enforcement with the Dept. of Justice instead of the overburdened EEOC. As soon as the Senate bill is introduced, Rep. Koch will introduce that version in the House too. Both Koch and Cranston are seeking co-sponsors, and your congresspersons might need some encouragement from you. Rep. Barbara Jordan (Houston) is one who needs encouragement. I talked with her personally last year about the possibility of being a co-sponsor for a gay rights bill. She said she would consider being a more vocal supporter of the bill if she thought it wouldn't cost her a lot of votes. She listened to our estimate of the number of gay rights supporters in her district, but your letter would be more convincing. Her address: 1725 Longworth House Office Bldg. Washington, D. C. 20515 Our U.S. Senators from Texas might also benefit from your letter. You can write Sen. John Tower or Sen. Lloyd Bentsen at: Old Senate Office Bldg. Washington, D. C. 20510 In the wake of the brutal murder of a gay man by a group of teenagers in Tucson, Arizona, the city council there has unanimously passed one of the most comprehensive gay rights bills in the country. Tucson thus becomes the nation's 39th community to pass gay rights legislation. - Pokey WNtfNRflLLY ■fine pa?pb Voov ad could b& reacMq -tV\ew\ &paqe=440 OS
