Transcript community Y2K Pride in full swing as hunt for logo continues DECEMBER 17, 1999 • HOUSTON VOICE PAST OUT • COMMUNITY CALENDAR OCCASIONS • CARMART • CLASSIFIEDS BUSINESS DIRECTORY • MY STARS by ROBERT B. HENDERSON The Pride Committee of Houston hopes to select a logo for next year's festivities on Tuesday, marking the start of a busy season of organizing for the annual event. Organizers are also seeking nominations for four grand marshals, which will be announced March 9 after community-wide voting. The Pride committee also has adopted a motto for the 2000 event, drawing on international organizers for some help. "Take Pride— Take Joy—Take Action," the motto for international organizers, will also serve as Houston's motto, said Jack Valinski, executive director of Pride Committee of Houston. "This is one of the first years we've actually gone with the international slogan. [There were] many years we wanted to do something a little bit different than what was recommended by the International Committee," Valinski said. The 2000 Pride motto will be set in a logo for easy identification in literature and committee- endorsed events. Organizers selected a graphic artist earlier this month to present three logo choices for Pride committee members to select from during its meeting on Dec. 21. And organizers said take note that events next year are called Lesbian and Gay Pride, which stems from an agreement to alternate the use of "lesbian" and "gay" each year, Valinski said. "Lesbian" is used first in even- numbered years, he said. While most of June has activities related to Pride, tens of thousands of people flock to the annual parade through Montrose, which will be held June 24 at 9 p.m. Organizers are also calling for nominations to help fill four slots for grand marshals of next year's parade—a man, a woman, an honorary and an organization. The Pride committee will continue what it started last year and allow open balloting for the grand marshals once the nomination process is completed, Valinski said. In previous years, grand marshal selection was done at a general Pride committee meeting. "Last year we decided to open it up to the public. You could either send in a ballot or actually come [to the meeting] vote. /\nybody in Harris or surrounding counties was eligible to vote," Valinski said. The ballot for grand marshal voting will be included in the Pride committee's newsletter and distributed in Montrose-area retail centers. Valinski also said he is committed to publishing the ballot in gay media outlets, like the Houston Voice, which organizers refused to do for voting in 1999. "I think that would be a fabulous thing. As long as the correct rules are in there. It would be a fabulous help in getting the word out," Valinski said.

Voters will select four grand marshals. The woman and man grand marshals are usually limited to self-identified gay, lesbian or transgendered people. The honorary grand marshal is usually a heterosexual man or woman and the grand marshal for an organization is for a group representing the best of the lesbian and gay community. ".Anybody can nominate. We do need to know the person being nominated will want to be considered. All we need to do is have it sent to us in writing. We expect these people who become grand marshals will come to some Pride events," Valinski said. Nominations must be written and the deadline for submission is Jan. 14.
