Transcript GPC BALLOT Members of the Gay Political Caucus have personally screened the candidates running in Houston's November 4th elections for Mayor and City Council. Candidates were asked whether they would support legislation barring discrimination against gays in housing, private employment, and city employment, whether they would appoint a police chief who would not harass gay people gathering lawfully, and whether they would hire a qualified gay person for their own staff. In the mayoral race, two of the candidates, Pedro Vasquez (Socialist Workers Party) and Scott Nelson (Ku Klux Klan) were judged on the basis of their speeches at GPC's recent political rally. Two other candidates, Dick Gottlieb and Frank Briscoe, failed to respond after repeated phone calls to their offices. Fred Hofheinz did respond and received GPC's endorsement. GPC's endorsements for City Council were as follows: District B District C District D District E Judson Robinson Jim Whitmire Homer Ford Helen Hopkins At Large #1: No Endorsement At Large #2: No Endorsement At Large #3: No Endorsement In City Council District A, in which homophobe Frank Mann is running uncontested, GPC strongly urged gay people to cast no ballot. Councilmember Mann recently reacted to an eloquent speech by gay activist Hugh Crell by suggesting that Hugh belonged not in City Council Chambers but in a psychiatrist's office. The Gay Political Caucus is "the hottest organization of its kind in the nation," according to a reporter from the Advocate, a national gay paper. In little more than a month, GPC has registered 3,100 people to vote and collected over $1,500 in contributions. GPC meets each Wednesday, at 7:30 p.m. at the Inside Outside, 1318 Westheimer. After a brief recouperation from their work in the November 4th election, they are looking ahead to a major effort in the primaries next spring. TGTF MEETS The newly elected 1975-76 Coordinating Council of the Texas Gay Task Force held its first meeting of this year in Dallas on September 27. The new Council consists of Ken Cyr (who was re-elected moderator) and Rob Shivers, representing the Northern Region; Rosella Kliewer and Troy Stokes, representing the Southern Region; Keith McGee and Pokey Anderson, representing the Eastern Region; and A. K. Campbell and Art Addington, representing the Western Region. The major accomplishment of the meeting was the creation of the TGTF Committee on Sex Roles and Gender Oppression. The Council directed the committee to investigate sexism within the gay organizations of Texas and to formulate ideas as to its cause and possible solutions. They were also directed to present their findings and a program at the Texas Gay Conference III to be held June 18-20, 1976 in Houston. Persons interested in working on this committee should contact their TGTF Regional Coordinator or write the Task Force at P. 0. Box 7318, Ft. Worth, TX. 76111. Basketballers who want to play for a Pointblank Times team, this is your last chance to get in on the ground floor.
