Reynolds FIRST TEXAS GAY MARRIAGE legally Married' in Houston A onetime male hair stylist for actress Jayne Mansfield and a former Texas football player clasped hands here in Houston Thursday night October 5, exchanged rings and became what they said was the first legally married couple of the same sex in the United States. William Ert, 30, who said he preferred to be called "Billie," and Antonio Molina, 33, a former high school athlete from Brownsville, Texas quietly exchanged vows at the Harmony Wedding Chapel. The two men got a marriage license Wednesday in Wharton, 60 miles west of Houston. Ert wore a white miniskirt, a blouse, a woman's wig and had his face made up as a woman at the time. ' 'you're confronted with all kinds of characters these days," said Wharton County Clerk Delfin Marek. "We wouldn't have issued any license if we'd known he wasn't a female. If I'd known there were two men in here trying to get a license . . . "If they present proper age proof and medical certificates, and one looks like a man and one a woman, then there's no further requirement for me to question them," Marek said. Texas Attorney General Crawford Martin ruled September 14 that county clerks are not authorized to issue marriage licenses to two persons of the same sex. He said, however, anyone who has a license can marry. The NUNTIUS was unable to contact the couple at press time but hope to have the complete story of this marriage in the next issue. Vice Squad Officers h W.:Kunkel and Huhard MAYES HARASSED BY POLICE But won't leave Tony appeared before the city council after the happening above and the following was reported by the Post. The story of Richard Anthony "Tony" Mayes has not been completed because of research which must be accurate according to Tony. "A member of my family has threatened to 'sue' if there is any descrepancy in the story." The 21st of September police re-arrested Tony after the court had voided charges. It happened like this: "You are under arrest for dressing as the opposite sex." That statement by a vice squad officer was a prelude to another round of troubles for transexual Mayes as he was arrested Thursday in front of the police station. Tony, who had just left city town court where the same charges were dismissed on a technicality, was arrested by vice squad officers Richard See and J. W. Kunkel as he (she as is prefered by * Tony) stepped onto the sidewalk. When Tony came to the police station August 24, to post bond for a friend charged with dressing as a female, he was arrested on the same charge. The case was dismissed on the 21st because the inside of the police building is not regarded as a "public thoroughfare," as stated in the revised law on transexuals. One interpretation of the law is that people can be arrested outside of a building but not inside for dressing as the opposite sex. The law, Section 28-42.4 of the Houston Code of Ordinances states: See Mayes page 12 issue 12 OUR COMMUNITY NOTHINQ HUMAN IS ALIGN TO US J
