Transcript 16 MONTROSE VOICE / AUGUST 20, 1982 Letters Reader Says 21.06 Decision Should Cause New Initiatives From Neil Isbin The gay community of Texas, and the entire nation, owes a great debt to the vision and hard work of individuals like Robert Schwab and Don Baker. The federal court ruling declaring the unconstitutionality of State Penal Code 21.06 validates the argument that major advances in civil rights are initiated by the fed eral courts and not by local politicians. The universal values of liberty and equality, inherent in the U.S. Constitution have provided the basis for continual civil rights reform. Unfortunately, local politicians, throughout the Civil Rights era, have either been openly hostile at the worst, or at the best, well intentioned but without the courage to lead. While the GPC has gained influence in city politics by demonstrating its effectiveness in turning out the vote, it has remained ineffective in pressuring local politicians. When local politicians expressed a fear of voting for various pro- gay ordinances, the GPC leadership backed down. When local politicians, while making promises to the gay community, he behind 21.06 as an excuse to delay action, the gay leadership said nothing. Due to the heroic efforts of the Texas Human Rights Foundantion, 21.06 has been removed from the books. Our local politicians have no more laws to hide behind. Their actions in the next few months will demonstrate the sincerity of their past promises. Police Chief Brown should begin plans to immediately hire gay community leaders as instructors in the Police Academy and as instructors in post-Academy training. Plans should also be made to open the next Academy class to gay applicants and to screen all future police applicants for prejudice against gays. Furthermore, the City Council and the Mayor should begin work on drafting a comprehensive Civil Rights ordinance that would include protection for gay citizens, among other minorities. It is no longer enough for local politicians to say that the prevention of negative initiative is enough—it is time for positive initiatives. It is also time for the GPC to use its influence, outside the ballot box, to pressure for the basic reforms it has advocated for years. MCC National Official to Hold Services in Houston From the Rev. Dee Lamb, assistant pastor. Metropolitan Community Church of the Ressurection Rev. Elder Freda Smith, Vice-Moderator of the Universal Fellowship of Metropolitan Community Churches (UFMCC), will be conducting spiritual renewal services at Metropolitan Community Church ofthe Ressurection (MCCR) Friday, August 20, and Saturday, August 21, at 7:15 p.m. in addition to Sunday, August 22, at both regular worship services (10:45 a.m. and 7:15 p.m.).

She is currently meeting requirements for a mas ter's degree in communication studies. Long active in gay rights, she received the 1977 Eleanor Roosevelt Democratic Club Award for "Outstanding Contributions in the Field of Human Rights."
