Transcript church." "I don't put down closet queens; all of us know how much we can risk. However, we must not let ourselves be complacent." Gene Leggett was the featured guest on Dave Lambell's telephone -call-in talk show on KAUM-FM radio (96.5, Houston) from 9:30 p.m. till 1:30 a.m. on Sunday, July 16th. , S Dear Mr. Frank, Excuse my typing and thanks for printing my article. We had quite a lot of response so this is in reply. Our thanks go to all the bar owners who helped participate in Dallas' first GAY PRIDE PARADE held last June 24th. They deserve our thanks and our support. Due to an article published recently about one particular bar owner in Dallas who refused to support the parade, several people have expressed dissatisfaction to bar owners who were not referred to in the article. For this we apologize. Ron-Sue's, Bayou Landing and T.J. 's actively assisted in the parade. Other bar owners were very helpful in allowing posters to be displayed and leaflets to be handed out. We sincerely appreciate their help. Actually only two bars refused to put up posters or allow handbills to be passed. One other bar allowed handbills to be passed only under pressure. Next year, the second annual GAY PRIDE PARADE will have more active participation in the way of floats, and cars representing the various Gay bars. We appreciate those people who have boycotted and expressed their dissatisfaction to bar owners who refuse to support Gay people in their struggle for human equality and dignity. Plans for next years' parade are already underway. If you would like to help, call 824- 0770 or write Box 5944, Dallas, Texas 75222. Yours for Gay Pride, PARADE CHAIRMAN Ms. Chris McKee How do we begin to say thank you? There are so many who helped make the GAY PRIDE PARADE a success. We owe a special thanks to Houston. They came in groups of three and four all night the night before the parade. The Gay Liberation of Houston entered a beautiful float. Houston also had cars and marchers in the parade. To the Metropolitan Community Church of Dallas, we say thanks for your help, encouragement, and participation. To the Purple Star Tribe, and particually Gene Leggett, we thank you for adding a colorful and festive air to the parade and picnic. The Nuntius/ parade and picnic. The Nuntius/ Our Community entered two cars in the parade. We owe them many thanks for their donations, publicity, and intense interest in the parade. Thanks to all the people who came from all over the country. Thanks for the entry of the car which proclaimed, "IowalsHere!" All those who opened up their homes to our out-of-town guests and all those who were on standby for out-of-towners, you were great. Thanks to all those who donated their time, energy, talents, money, and vocal support even though they were unable to march in the parade itself. Thanks to those people who helped make signs and banners. A special thanks goes to the members of the Circle of Friends who had the courage to sponsor the parade. For the publicity given the parade, we wish to thank the parade, we wish to thank the Advocate, the Nuntius/Our Community, and the Channel. I wish to thank all those who helped in obtaining the use of the Dallas Press Club for our press conference. And unless we forget, we need to thank the Dallas City Council for their unwitting help in helping us to obtain publicity. To the bar owners who participated in the parade and those who put up posters and allowed us to pass out leaflets, we say thank you. To the bar owners of the After Dark Lounge and The Other Place in Ft. Worth, the Bayou Landing, Ron-Sue's, and TJ's in Dallas, we say a special thank you. To Barbara Gittings of Philadelphia, thanks for being such a good sport about being woke up at "that" hour of the morning. Thanks to all our beautiful straight brothers and sisters who marched along side us. And I wish to say a special loving thanks to my lover for her help, encouragement, understanding, and nagging when I needed it. But the most important people we wish to thank are all those who marched down Main Street. YOU WERE THE PARADE. See you next year. Yours for Gay pride, PARADE CHAIRMAN Ms. Chris McKee Letter of Thanks I would personally like to thank the following: The Villa Fontana, Entree Nuit, Briar- patch, Bachelars Quarters and the Detour Saloon for their and their employees help on the night of the July 20th. Special thanks to Mr. Cindy Birdsong, current Miss Dallas, and the entire cast of Ronsue's bartenders and doorman for contributing their salaries and tips, of the night. $330.00 was raised With this money 150 kids left for a summer camp on the 23rd of July which otherwise would not have gotten to go. Let us hope that this is only a beginning. My sincere thanks again to all. Ronnie Sue. zxte FOR GAY SOCIETY AND ACTIVITY 1 C. 0. F. THE CIRCLE OF FRIENDS SINCE 1968.

PLEASE SEND MB MORE INFORMATION o 10.00 ENCLOSED FOR ONE YEAR mMBtRSHIP 4 Last month the Villa Fontana celebrated its 20th anniversary. This bar is known and has befriended many patrons in this span of time. Congrats to Bill and Ray. The 10th of July was the first anniversary of the Detour Saloon. Shows here on Sundays are still going great guns under the head of current Miss Dallas, Cindy Birdsong! Praise be and contratulations to Margerit at T.J.'s. They are going open saloon on the first of August. J Ronsue's is enlarging on the 1st of August. Will finally have the entire building and parking lot at the present location — about time!! Understand that the shows are enlarging along with the area. New lights and sound equipment. Now the best show in town can be properly enjoyed! If you have not stopped at the Candy Store on band night - one should. They are featuring an all girls band known as "HOT ICE" and the singer known as Robbin is out of sight! The Bachelors Quarters over on Live Oak is going great guns along with the Entre Nuit which is located downstairs underneath. We are told that the elevator will not carry Big David and a trick - just "fatty" by himself or is it herself?! They'd loose this ones business if it had to walk up! The Bayou Landing and Delta Baths still very strong attraction. If you have not eaten in this spot lately - you're missing it all. Fresh vegetables home style! Just Great! The Bon-Soir on Lovers Lane still quite cruisy - quiet and sedate. Bill is doing a great job as manager. The crowd at the Briarpatch gets better each time one enters! Mary and Jim are doing a real fine job. See you around - till next tinje! --- Get it! PS: Dennis - what is the attraction in Corpus Christi -- not real fish -- ? Page 7'
