From George Barnhart Here I return (to Houston) ... and find that in my absence Houston's gay community has continued in a course of self-defeatism pretty much as before. Sadly, GPC still dawdles along, emersed in dilly-dally politics and petty in-fighting that tells me that group is still in the grips of small minds. How can they "table" an issue as important as trying to facilitate education, understanding, and tolerance between our constituency and the general business community is beyond my comprehension. These delaying tactics can only suggest one thing. GPC leadership has turned completely and totally "chicken" and will avoid confrontational advocacy or controversial action at all costs (mainly ours). Nowonderfasl hear it) the mayor has now spread the word that GPC is no longer a viable force to contend with. I suspect some of the rabidly bigoted on City Council are now chortling with mirth as they scratch through Gay Political Caucus and write "Got Plain Chicken" underneath. Then I am stunned to hear that our own gay business group, the Greater Montrose Business Guild, now has it in their collective minds to strip themselves of any resemblance to a gay business organization. Is this the same group that was formed, fostered, and nurtured under the roof of Houston Human Right's League's Fred Paez Center? Is this the same group that at its inception vowed to help promote and build gay economic clout by advancing the interests of Montrose businesses that did not discriminate? How silly. How sad Especially when we note this group went so far as to politically assassinate one of the most dedicated, devoted, self-sacrificing and brilliant activists we have around (Phyllis Frye) in order to clear the path for their dastardly new agenda. I didn't know we needed an organization to help us build closets! Seems the major complaint among members is GMBG isn't doing enough. I agree. The way gay businesses and gay supported businesses can best promote and advance their businesses in a gay (greater) Montrose is to stand vocally and aggressively four-square in a united defense of their customers' and clients' lifestyles. That would certainly be a major motivator to get me to shop ir their store. Come to think about it, why isn't GMBG doing something to help bridge the gap that exists between the Houston Chamber and our own "gay chamber of commerce?" Sorrowfully, I must admit not only has our leadership continued in its convoluted, bland, do-nothing, know-nothing approach, but it also seems that for the most part our populace seems content to let them persist. What's happened to us? Maybe the mayor is right. ISI Write the Voice Items in the "Letters" column are opinions of readers and NOT NECESSARILY those of the Voice.
