Transcript June 18, 1982 / Montrose Voice 5. 1 Year Ago June 18. 1981: Gay Pride Week began Houston's 11 day celebration of Gay Pride Week 1981 began with a commemoration of the raid the previous year by police on Mary's Lounge, a popular gay club at 1022 Westheimer. June 20. 1981: Thousands protested in Canada About 2000 gay rights supporters staged a noisy Gay Pride Week demonstration in downtown Toronto to protest police raids the week earlier at two gay baths. Twenty-one people were arrested in the baths raid. The demonstrators frequently broke through police lines and surged into the streets, snarling traffic, but there was no violence and no arrests in the demonstration. June 20, 1981: Gays played firemen but no cops The Montrose Sports Association softball doubleheader in Memorial Park with a Houston fire department team brought out hundreds of onlookers. Houston Police Officers Association officials had declined an invitation to send a team to play and used the occasion to make homophobic remarks. June 22, 1981: GPC forum heard from 'Advocate' owner The Gay Political Caucus's educational forum for Gay Pride Week heard guest David Goodstein oiThe Advocate and The Advocate Experience speak on "Our Challenges During the Next Decade." June 23, 1981: Neartown announced fight on prostitutes Members of the Neartown Association, a Montrose civic organization, voted to make the problem of prostitution in the neighborhood their "priority issue."

Hot dogs and beer were served at the June 15 Harris County Executive Committee's "Democrats of Texas Gettogether," an evening of toe-tapping music, barbed humor and down-home poli- tiking. This informal gathering at the Sheraton Houston of Democratic nominees, office holders, hopefuls and supporters was quite a contrast to the GOP $l,000-a-plate fundraising dinner attended by President Ronald Reagan across the street. An estimated 2500 to 3500 Democrats were entertained by famed "Orange Blos- son Special" composer/fiddler Pappy Selph, who dedicated "Please Release Me" to Governor Bill Clements. Bob Armstrong, who came in third in the Democratic primary for governor, auctioned off democratic memorabilia. The theme for the fete was "Kick 'Em in '82" and was brought to the crowd by such speakers as Bob Slagle, the state party chairman; Gary Mauro, nominee for Land Commissioner; Ann Richards, nominee for State Treasurer; and Jim Hightower, State Rep. Debra Danburg (right) and local attorney Richard Prim nominee for Agriculture Commissioner. Hightower received thunderous applause to his comment: "Reagan's only problem is that he never met a millionaire he didn't like." Mark White, Democratic candidate for the governor's race, faced a technical problem as State Rep. Craig Washington tried to hold the phone to the microphone and White's voice couldn't be heard. Washington quoted him as saying if GPC president Larry Bagneris (right) and vice president Terry Harris Republicans raise $3 million at their dinner, they'll "need a lot more than that to beat Mark White." Montrose was well represented at the event. State Rep. Debra Danburg as well as several Houston City Council members were seen meeting, greeting and politik- ing. The Gay Political Caucus was in strong attendance including president Larry Bagneris Jr. and vice president Terry Harris. Man receives 40 years in neighborhood murder The man accused in the killing of Montrose florist Robert Clark pleaded guilty Monday, June 14, and was sentenced to 40 years in prison, according to the Houston Post. Keith Ray Hatley, 21, had been arrested in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., driving Clark's car after a woman with whom he had been traveling tried to buy gasoline with one of Clark's credit cards, police said. Assistant District Attorney Bob Burdette said the men had met Thanksgiving day and went to Hooker-Clark Flowers at 524 Hawthorne, where Clark's nude and badly beaten body was found the following morning by his partner. Burdette said Hatley, whose original indictment also included a capital murder charge, had no prior felony convictions, but had been convicted of a male prostitution charge in Dallas. Michigan House passes bill to keep library records private International Gay News Agency The Michigan House of Representatives passed a library privacy bill that prohibits disclosure of who is reading library books. The bill forbids revelation ofthe readers of any books unless the book borrowers consent or a court orders disclosure in connection with a specific crime. The bill has special relevance to gay people because repressive organizations had started a campaign to identify people who use library books that present a positive view of homosexuality or who use other books offensive to them. The bill was supported by the Michigan Organization of Human Rights as well as the State Board of Education and the Michigan Library Association. The Michigan Education Association has said, "The right to avail oneself freely of the resources of a library without fear of how others might interpret one's choice of reading matter must be protected...." The bill now awaits action before the Senate Committee on Education.
