Transcript news WY1978 GAY AUSTIN 5 News briefs... ...austin ANITA'S COMING !!! HUMAN RIGHTS GROUPS PLAN BREAKFAST FESTIVAL Anita Bryant will appear as special guest witness Sunday May 7 in Municipal Auditorium for Allandale Baptist Church's Great Day celebration. The Austin Coalition for Human Rights, an aggregate of women's groups, pro-ERA activists, right-to-abortion groups, and gay rights groups, is planning a "Breakfast Festival for Human Rights" to be held in Town Lake Park during Anita's appearance in Municipal Auditorium. According to the festival's coordinators, it will be a pot-luck breakfast rally without speakers. Starting time is 9am. ADS TO BE PLACED IN AMERICAN-STATESMAN There reportedly are efforts to place two large ads in the May 7 issue of the Austin American Statesman, which would declare support for human rights. TEXAS GAY TASK FORCE PUNS TEXAS GAY CONFERENCE 5 The Texas Gay Task Force announces that Texas Gay Conference Five will be held in Dallas at the Mariott Hotel June 10-11. Co-chairpersons for the conference are Lee Knapp and Steve Wilkins. The annual TGTF Texas Gay Conference has in the past included a variety of workshops and other events. Last year's conference, held in Austin, included workshops on the gay press, gay activism and community politics, gay poetry and other topics of interest to the gay community. Featured speakers were Miami's Bob Kunst and Houston's Ray Hill. To register for the conference, which is open to everyone regardless of membership in TGTF, call GCS at 477-6699 for more information. THIRD COTLAINT FILED AGAINST CABARET Since the last issue of GAY AUSTIN, another complaint has been filed with the Austin Human Relations Department against the Cabaret, a local disco, for violation of the sexual orientation provision of the Public Accommodations Ordinance (see GAY AUSTIN, vol. 2, no. 7, April, 1978). According to Terry Harris, the complainant, the case involves an incident last October 21 (erroneously reported in GAY AUSTIN as having occurred in November) in which he and a male friend were bodily ejected from the club for dancing together. Harris says he called the police when the manager of the club threatened to call them himself as a result of Harris1 attempt to discuss the matter reasonably, but that the police took the side of the manager. The police played a similar role in the incident at the White Rabbit disco reported last month. The two complaints filled previously against the Cabaret, also involving discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation, have meanwhile moved a step closer to the courtroom. Branif Airlines, owner of Cabaret and the Driskill Hotel in which it is located, have failed to respond to the attempt to reach a conciliation agreement, and the case has been sent to the City Attorney for prosecution. In the meantime, the White Rabbit Disco, the subject of several complaints under the same ordinance for discrimination against Chicanos and Blacks, is trying to change its image. It now features salsa music once a week and advertises over the local Spanish-language radio station. The word "white" has been deleted from its name in recent adver- *" ' --David Morris AUSTIN MCC SEKS NEW MEMBERS Austin's Metropolitan Community Church is gearing up for an active month in May and is industriously seeking to increase membership for its small but active congregation. Now located at 614 East 6th St., MCC is led by its new minister, Jeff Bishop, in Sunday services at noon and at 7:30 p.m. The noon service is more formal, the evening service more "free-wheeling and experimental." Holy Communion is observed at both. MCC was host to a spiritual renewal week April 12-16 conducted by the New Freedom Evangelestic Team, whose wrokshops included such topics as Homosexuality and the Bible, Community Outreach, Social Christian Action and Stewardship. In a joint effort with churches from Houston and San Antonio, the Austin MCC will lead a weekend Spiritual Renewal Weekend Camp in June. In addition to Sunday worship, church members gather often for a variety of other social and program events, including a monthly pot luck supper. MCC Austin is a mission church of the united Fellowship of Metropolitan Community Churches, founded by the Reverend Troy Perry in California. Headquartered in Los Angeles, UFMCC is organized into nine districts in the United States and also has church extension programs in Australia, Great Britain, Canada and Nigeria. Since UFMCCs organization from a single church founded by Perry, author of "The Lord is My Shepherd and He Knows I'm Gay," the international church has become one of the fastest growing churches in the world. It now has more than 107 congregations in seven nations. PEARL STREET WAREHOUSE CLOSES After a decade of service to the Austin gay community, Pearl Street Warehouse, affectionately known to its patrons as "PSW," closed its doors April 29. A significant decline in business is the apparent reason for the bar's closing. PSW owners have reportedly placed the bar on the market.
