JUNE 1 S . *iaaS - www.houstonvoice.co rn I S S U ES g O Gay Republicans prepare for rally State GOP calls gays 'deviants, hateful extremists' From staff and wire reports Gay Republicans are hoping for a large turnout on Saturday in Foil Worth as a show of political might for state GOP leaders, who last month denied a booth for Log Cabin Republicans of Texas inside the state convention. The bitter political infighting has earned a rebuke from Gov. George W. Bush and drawn national media attention. After denying Log Cabin's request for a booth inside the convention this weekend, state GOP spokesman Robert Black referred to gays as "deviants, pedophiles and hateful extremists." Gay Republicans called the language inflammatory and insulting. "The decision by these bigoted party officials to deny us a booth is a threat to the rights of every gay Texan," said Steve Labinski, Log Cabin state president. "We will not tolerate this kind of prejudice. All Americans should be ashamed and angry that the leaders of a major political party practice it publicly." State party leaders also rejected the request of the Texas Freedom Network, a nonpartisan group which works to counteract the political clout of the religious right. Gay Republicans hope the hour- long Rally for Liberty attracts more than 1,000 people outside the Fort Worth/Tarrant County Convention Center. I "If party officials will not permit us , to be heard inside j the convention hall, we assure them j they will hear us J outside the convention hall. We invite | the entire community to attend." Labinski said.

"With the constantly changing (ace of AIDS and the epidemic, it is important for organizations to be able to adapt quickly." Bill Kersten. Bering's executive director, said Thursday. This gives us the opportunity to be more adaptable to this environment." The idea of accomplishing more with one agency helped spur negotiations between directors of both boards, ongoing since February, said Margot Morris. Omega House executive director. "One of the things that we ■ talked about through this whole process is that the whole more than the sum of its , parts." she said.

But Nash will do anything lor a laugh, because he "can't slant! a room full of grinners." he said. Oddly enough, Nash could probably double as a pop psychologist if acting doesn't work out.
