Transcript A FOOD STAMP ODYSSEY - OR - FAGGOTS NEED FOOD, TOO by Gene Leggett On Monday afternoon, July 29, I reported to Mr. Arthur Martinez, supervisor of the home investigators for the Food Stamp Program, Department of Public Welfare on East Houston, that Robert de la Cruz, one of the workers under him, had discriminated against me as a member of the gay minority, had contributed to the economic oppression of gay people and, in short, was suffering from homophobia. After receiving a full report from me, Mr. Martinez agreed to have a conference with Mr. de la Cruz and sensitize him to the rights of gay people. A Classic Tale of Homophobia The chain of events leading up to this meeting were as follows: On July 15, at my monthly interview for participation in the food stamp program, Ms. Diana Garcia decided a home investigation should be made to verify that I had separate kitchen facilities where I lived (hot plate and ice chest are bare necessities, which I have). Ms. Garcia said an investigator would probably come by the end of the week. By Friday afternoon, July 19, no investigator had come. I had stayed around home for the entire week so I wouldn't miss "the visit" and thought it best to call down to the East Houston office to verify that someone was going to come. I was informed that the investigation had been completed on Thursday, July Id. I talked next to Mr. de la Cruz, who said he was the one who had come on Thursday afternoon and the investigation was indeed completed. (Mr. de la Cruz had handled my papers in June 8nd did not seem to care for my bracelets, rings and earring.) I inquired how he could complete his investigation without making the home visit and talking to me personally, and he replied that no one was home when he came on Thursday. How You Find Out No One's Home I told Mr. de la Cruz that I was home and asked him how he made the decision"jon one was home. First, he replied, there was no car In the car port. (I don't have a oar.) Secondly, he said, he asked the landlady and she said no ( Read on awhile )
