Transcript COMNHmUNS JUNE 1980 AUSTIN TEXAS VOL.2 N0.6 VOL.2 N0.6 Breakfast Festival for Human Rights, May 7, 1978, Town Lake Park, Austin GAY PRIDE WEEK FOR AUSTIN A parade and rally, a "town meeting" and numerous cultural, events are in store for Austin as the city's lesbian/gay community gears up for the eleventh national "Gay Pride Week." This event celebrates the Stonewall Resistance of 1969, which was the beginning of the lesbian/gay community's emergence as a political and social force in the United States. This year's celebration will begin on Sunday, June 22 with Austin's first lesbian and gay "town meeting." The meeting will offer a grass-roots discussion of lesbian/gay issues in Austin. Representatives from various organizations will be on hand for a question and answer session. The Lesbian/Gay Pride Parade will begin at 10:00 a.m. on Saturday, June 28. Marchers will gather at the fire tower on Town Lake, at East First and Colorado, beside the Sheraton-Crest Inn. They will proceed up Congress Avenue until they reach the Capitol. They will turn east at Eleventh Street and march to Wool- dridge Park at Tenth and Guadalupe. The rally will begin at 12 noon at Wooldridge Park. Teatro Alegre will perform excerpts from "Jotos" and various other Austin entertainers will perform. Prominent lesbian/gay social and political leaders will be guest speakers. Alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks will be available. Feminist, lesbian, and gay businesses will display their wares. Austin Lambda Cultural Center will present workshops, poetry readings, and various other lesbian/ gay cultural activities throughout the week. This year's Austin Lesbian/Gay Pride Week will be both eventful and entertaining. Don't go to Houston or Dallas. Stay right here and give our community's straight population a good dose of lesbian/gay pride. Nowhere else but Austin! Anyone who is interested in working on one of the planned events or in coordinating one of their own may contact the Gay Pride Week Planning Committee through Gay Community Services at 477-6699 between 6:00 and 10:00 p.m. kut-fm cancels different drummer Austin's gay radio program, A Different Drummer, has been cancelled by KUT-FM station manager William Giorda. The program, produced by Carr.Strong and the Austin Gay Radio Collective, ended May 25, after only thirteen shows. This cancellation comes in spite of a •warm reception of the program in both the gay and straight communities of Austin. Manager Giorda said, "This series, over the past 3 (sic) months, has provided a service of interest to one of the numerous segments of the community. Regrettably, air time that is available for these sorts of special interest programs is finite; and, as a consequence, it needs to be shared as equitably as possible amongst other segments of the community." * (continued on page 3)
