Transcript Conferees at the winter session of the Texas Gay Task Force in Dallas January 25 included Gene Leggett, San Antonio, House of the Covenant representative and coordinator of the 1975 Texas Gay Conference; Rob Shivers, Dallas, Northern Region member of the TGTF Coordinating Council; and Ken Cyr, Fort Worth, also representing the Northern Region on the Council. Elaine Noble, Morris Kight Planned for Conference (Dallas) Rousing applause greeted the announcement by Gene Leggett, coordinator of the 1975 Texas Gay Conference, that Elaine Noble and Morris Kight are tentatively scheduled as featured speakers at the conference to be held June 20-22 in San Antonio. In his report to the TGTF House of Delegates at their winter meeting, Leggett stated that Kight had already accepted and he felt confident that Noble's acceptance would become definite shortly. Elaine Noble is a member of the Massachusetts House of Representatives and is the first person running openly as a Lesbian to be elected to a position in any state legislature. Morris Kight, sometimes referred to as the "dean of gay liberation," is the director of the famed Los Angeles Gay Community Service Center which recently was the recipient of a million dollar government grant for its free clinic program. Leggett also announced that a site has been selected for the conference and will be announced soon. Preparations are being made to open registration soon for the conference which will draw people from throughout Texas and across the nation. This will be the second annual Texas Gay Conference, the first being held last June in Fort Worth. The 1974 Texas Gay Conference featured Barbara Gittings and Dr. Franklin Kameny and gave birth to the Texas Gay Task Force which now sponsors the annual event. COUNSELING CONFERENCE SET FOR MARCH 1 (Dallas) On Saturday, March 1, Dallas- Fort Worth area psychotherapists and counselors will have an opportunity to meet for a workshop on "Counseling and Homosexuality," a program of continuing professional education designed to sharpen counselors' awareness of the special problems of homosexuals and their families. The workshop is designed for participation of psychologists, psychiatrists, coun selors, student personnel workers, social workers, health educators, sex educators and clergy. The conference, sponsored by the Homosexual Counseling Journal, will be held at Mountainview Junior College, 4849 West Illinois, Dallas, from 9:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. In addition to the keynote address by Dr. Ralph Blair of New York City, the workshop will include panel presentations and discussion by local mental health professionals and representatives of the gay community. There will also be an opportunity for small group discussions and dialog. Additional information about the Dallas conference may be obtained from the Homosexual Community Counseling Center, Inc., 45 East 74th Street, New York, New York 10021, or by contacting the local conference coordinator, Charles Weis, at (214) 688-2031 or 521-8244.
