GAY COMMUNITY SERVICES ? / HOTLINE p 477-6699 AUSTIN GAY PRIDE RALLY The gay pride parade and the town meeting, victims of Austin's low summer energy level and lesbian/gay organizations' conflicting commitments, were cancelled. However, several people met June 16 at Metropolitan Community Church of Austin to try to salvage some kind of Gay Pride Week celebration for Austin. Those present were Dianne Draper, Scotty Scott, Michael Femandes, Becky Badgett, Jim Olinger and Wayde Frey. The result was that a Gay Pride Rally was scheduled for Thursday, June 26, at Wooldridge Park, sponsored by Austin Lambda, Austin Lesbian-Gay Political Caucus, Gay Community Services and Metropolitan Community Church of Austin. Michael Fernandes arranged for Jubilation to play at the event, which was to run from 6 to 10 p.m. Also lined up to entertain were Hektor Munoz and Teatro Alegre (Gay Theatre), Richard Howard, and Deanna Stevenson. Rev. Candace Naisbitt of MCCA also agreed to speak. Fernandes printed up and distributed a leaflet advertising the rally. Jim Olinger arranged for the changed date for the park permit. Lynn Aday handled beer arrangements, so that GCS could recoup the costs of the park permit and other expenses for the event. GCS had originally fronted the money for the rally to the Gay Pride Week Organizing Committee, which attempted to organize Gay Pride Week festivities for Austin, but then gave up and wanted to call everything off. However, MCCA pastor Candace Naisbitt, Dianne Draper, other MCCA members, Fernandes, Olinger, and many others wanted to have some sort of gay pride celebration in Austin for 1980, and the June 26 rally was an outcome of their joint efforts. Austin Lambda had scheduled a performance by Jubilation, but needed a place to hold a dance. GCS had reserved Wooldridge Park for a rally, but needed people to entertain. Eernandes and Olinger agreed to combine their efforts and to have Austin Lambda and GCS jointly sponsor one event for all of Austin, along with ALGPC and MCCA. GCS COMPLETES OFFICE RENOVATION Through the efforts of several people, the Gay Community Services office at 2330 Guadalupe has been renovated and airconditoned. Larry Palmer, George, Leo Cazares, Michael, Gerry ITarr and Francisco stripped paint from window frames and the door, sheetrocked, taped, patched and'painted walls, and scraped up asphalt tile, buffed the pinewood floor and varnished it to a lovely shine. Cork bulletin boards and a stuffed sofa and matching chairs completed the comfortable, homey decor. All this was done in January, 1980. In March, Dick Ehlert organized a fund-raising benefit for GCS at the Austin Country. Part of the proceeds from this benefit was used to reimburse people who had bought materials for use in the office renovation and had rented a floor buffing machine. In May, part of the proceeds from the benefit were spent on a window airconditioner for the GCS office. The work was completed just in time for summer and hot weather. GCS has also taken over an unused hall for additional storage. Lynn Aday located and installed a used airconditioner. He and Gary Fitzsimmons planed, painted and installed a wooden door to keep the cool air inside the office area. CONNECTIONS readers are invited to come by GCS and to enjoy the cool, attractive surroundings. .,','.'. . a'aV.'i
