Transcript FROM THE EDITOR As as this issue I would like to welcome our new readers in Oklahoma City. I am sure our directory for Oklahoma City is not complete, but I hope we will have it brought up to date in the very near future. Labor Day Weekend will soon be here and activity should be just about everywhere. Sally's in the 900 Lovett complex in Houston has not filled us in on the details of their activities, but all they will say is that it will be a surprise! And speaking of surprises, the move of the Mr. Gay America Pageant seems to have surprised a lot of people. The show should bring in a lot of out of towners into the Bayou City. And when you think of holidays you have to think of the Bourbon Pub and Parade in New Orleans. If there is anything to do with a party, you can bet the Pub will be the number one spot to be at! After Dark Bookstore in Houston now has a half of block of free parking across the street from its front doors. That should help alleviate some of the late night traffic problems. And speaking of After Dark, well, that's where this issue's cover boy comes from. Twenty- )__. ®m m»u€a mmm Due to the closing of the Bayou Landing Club in Dallas, and also to the uncertainty of its re-opening, a new site was found for the First Annual Mr. Gay America Pageant to be held Sunday, September 5th, Labor Day Weekend.
