Transcript t I vol. 3, no. 7 Gay Austin april 19793 Broadcasters Seek Lesbian, Gay Advice by GARY REESE On March 14, representatives of the gay community met for the first time with panels of Austin broadcasters in an effort to determine how the community's needs may best be met. Federal Communications Commi- sion requirements have recently been expanded to require that minorities other than ethnic groups be consulted by broadcasters. The broadcasters must ascertain community needs in order to fulfill their public service function under FCC guidelines. (See Gay Austin, February, 1979.) ••Each station has the responsibility of determining these needs and has to justify its performance to the FCC when its license comes up for renewal," explained Woody Egger, one of the community representatives and a board member of the Texas Gay Task Force. "The local broadcasters have decided that, instead of doing this on their own, they would set up panels with one representative from every TV and radio station sitting on each panel." Initial inquiries about gays being included in the interview process were made by Carr Strong, general coordinator of Gay Community Services, and Troy Stokes, former GCS media coordinator. Egger and Mary Ann Edwards of Womenspace held interviews with the two separate panels of broadcasters. "I told them that we needed to be able to speak to our own members of the community and to enlighten the community at large," Egger explained. He said that he identified three areas dial require attention. "We need to be able to get public service announcements aired, to get on interview and talk shows, and also to have some kind of program of our own." Such a program, Egger added, would be aired at a regularly scheduled time and would be produced and moderated by gays. "In the past we've only gotten on talk shows and interviews in response to challenges from people like Anita Bryant or Reverend O'Chester. Or, Documentation Sought HOUSTON Representatives of the American Civil Liberties Union, the Political Association of Spanish Speaking Organizations, the Houston Gay Political Caucus, and four law firms are assembling documentation of harassment and brutality by Houston police against gay people, Chicanos, and Blacks. The evidence will be presented to (he U.S. Civil Rights Commission at its hearings in Houston this spring. The hearings result from a long list of allegations of police brutality in Houston. Best known is the case of Jose Campos Torres who drowned when police beat him and threw him in a bayou in I977.V Women's Caucus Endorses Candidates AUSTIN - The Austin Women's Political Caucus, at their March 20th Candidate Forum, has decided to endorse the following candidates in the upcoming City Council elections: place 3, Rick Ream; place 4, Richard Goodman; place 5, John Trevino; place 6, Jimmy Sncll. There was no endorsement in places 1 and 2, and no endorsement for Mayor. Of the eleven issues the Caucus considered to be of concern to the City Council and the people of Austin, all four of the candidates endorsed responded favorably to the addition of sexual orientation to the existing Fair Housing Ordinance.V Put the Texan in the right hands... because it ends up in yours. Kessler , t H Editor paid political ad when a nationally known gay spokesperson has come through town." The local gay community's needs have not been served until we can get broadcasting time in our own right, Egger explained. The lack of minority membership in gay organizations is another problem which could be ameliorated through increased local access to broadcasting channels. "As of this time, we have restricted access to those communities — Black, Chicano, and the young gays coming out who have no way of getting in touch with others their age who are having the same difficulties." Demonstrator Pat Cramer has suggestion. Ga) men and lesbians were among demonstrators at the LBJ Library last March 1 to greet William Coors of the Coors Brewery, who was there to participate in a conference on "the new partnership between business and government." The Coors Brewery is being boycotted by homosexuals and many other groups for its allegedly racist, homophobic and anti-labor practices. At the conference, Coors placed the blame for mistrust of big business on public ignorance and misunderstanding. "The Daily Texan needs more coverage of events relevant to the Austin Lesbian/Gay community, exposing violations of the civil rights of all human beings." -Chorlie Rose VOTE APRIL 4th
