Transcript Montrose News /The Nation June 4,1982/Montrose Voice 3 National gay health gathering is this weekend in Houston by Ed Martinez Between 300 and 500 registrants from across the country were being expected in Houston for the Fourth National Lesbian- /Gay Health Conference, June 4-6, at the University of Houston Continuing Education Center. More than 30 workshops addressing various mental and physical health issues were planned, all related to the conference theme, "Survival Issues in Health Care: Lesbian/Gay People as Providers, as Consumers." A panel of experts were planning on discussing the recent, and as yet unexplained, emergence of Kaposi's sarcoma and other opportunistic infections. This discussion was to be chaired by Dr. Peter W.A. Mansell ofthe the University of Texas's M.D. Anderson Hospital. Set to highlight the conference was keynote speakers Virginia "Ginny" M. Apuzzo (former Assistant Commissioner for Operations, New York City Department of Health) and Travis L. Peterson, MSW, SP (psychotherapist and instructor of social work at the University of Houston). The conference is being sponsored by the Task Force on Lesbian and Gay Issues, Texas Chapter, NASW; the Graduate School of Social Work, University of Houston; the National Gay Health Education Foundation; and the Montrose Counseling Center. A full range of activities, social and professional, was planned for those attending the conference. The agenda featured workshops on topics such as alcohol abuse, problems on aging in the gay community, holistic gay health care, problems of gay parents, lesbians and sexual child abuse, and alas, handling the family crisis of dying in the gay community. Saturday afternoon was to feature a lengthy session on the subject of Kaposi's sarcoma, which has recently gained widespread attention from all public health officials. This session will last from 1:30 p.m. until 5:00 p.m. The social side ofthe conference has not been neglected, and there was a hospital ity suite Thursday evening at the Continuing Education Center that was open to the public. For Friday night, Numbers 2 Disco, 300 Westheimer, scheduled a "Welcome to Houston" party Entertainment at this party was to be provided by Mary Hooper, singer and comedienne, and local personality Danny Villa. This party was planned to benefit the Montrose Counseling Center. Saturday at lunch, the Montrose Singers wee scheduled to perform in a concert billed as "Dessert for Lunch." Saturday night, both the Montrose Counseling Center and the Montrose Clinic were to sponsor open houses, with Alice Schroeder, comedienne, to be present at the Montrose Clinic. Ed Henderson, hospitality coordinator for this national event and himself a social worker in Houston, said his job was to make Houston aware ofthe importance of the conference, not only to this city, but to the nation as well. Paez family files suit The Houston Police Department, HPD officer Kevin McCoy and Best Delivery Systems, Inc. are being sued by the family of Fred Paez for unspecified damages resulting from the shooting death of the gay activist on June 28, 1980. Though a jury acquitted McCoy of charges of criminally negligent homicide last September, the lawsuit charges that HPD, McCoy and Best Delivery Systems were grossly negligent. The suit alleges that McCoy's consumption of five beers prior to the shooting had affected his judgement, that Best Delivery failed to properly supervise McCoy as its employee, and that HPD had not given McCoy proper training in the use of his non-standard issue gun or consumption of alcohol while working an extra job. The death of Paez occurred at the beginning of Gay Pride Week 1980 when McCoy was arresting Paez for allegedly making a sexual proposition to the officer and his friend, off-duty officer Steven Cain. McCoy testified last September that his gun had accidently discharged while he was holding it to Paez's head and Paez had attempted to grab for the pistol. The amount ofthe suit was unspecified. Gay minister leaving church International Gay News Agency A methodist minister who stirred up controversy when he said he was gay now says he is leaving his Colorado home and probably the ministry itself. Julian Rush, 45, said he has applied to the Rocky Mountain Conference of the United Methodist Church for an "appointment to education" so that he can take a graduate position at Emporia State University in Kansas. Rush said he doubts that he will return to Colorado and "I doubt I will go back to church work." He said he would like to go into counseling. Melvin Wheatley, Jr., bishop of the Rocky Mountain Conference, said he would recommend that Rush's request be approved. Just days earlier, Wheatley was absolved by regional Methodist church officials of doctrinal wrongdoing in appointing Rush to St. Paul's United Methodist Church in Denver. Some church members had accused Wheatley of defying Methodist dogma by appointing a homosexual as a minister. But the church's investigative committee determined that the United Methodist Church had no rules against the ordination of gay people to the ministry. Necks are next If there was any doubt that the age of designer jeans is passing, this should put an end to it. The latest fashion trend is neckties. But not just any necktie. It was reported that trendy neckware for the 15 to 30 set includes ties made of leather, corduroy and flannel. And they're even beginning to sport designer names like Sergio Valente.

So here it is. The club was originally named Tommy's Lounge and was owned by the wife of the deceased Tommy Musselwhlte. who also called herself Tommy. Joe Anthony had the vending machines in the place and one night while Joe was in there, he expressed an interest in Tommy's antique cash register. "How much do you want for that thing," he said. "$6000," said lommy. "What! $6000 for a cash register," said Joe. "Yea. but I'll throw in the bar along with it." Joe was feeling no pain at the moment (he was drunk), so he peeled off 60 $100-bills, and he bought the cash register—and the bar Next day, in the attorney's office finalizing everything, Joes son Mike said, "Well Mary, now that you own the place, what are you gonna call it." "That's it. Mary's. That's what we'll call it," said Joe. This was in November, 1969. In January, 1974, Joe sold the bar to its present owner, Jim Farmer. —•— The montrose voice staffers had a grand time at the Gay Press Association convention last weekend in Denver. Especially enjoying himself was ad salesman Lyt Harris at a bar-b-que hosted by Charlie's. Charlie's is the Miss Charlotte's of Denver. After about six beers. Lyt was swooping the dance floor with some number that resembled Tallulah Bankhead, David's is Denver's best disco—with a crowd similar to Numbers, but with a leather bar in the back. The Cherry Creek Mining Company is much larger than its Houston counterpart, since it has a dance floor and a J.R.'s-type restaurant. And the gay press was given royal treatment by the Ballpark Baths, Denver's super tubs. -•- The Mr., Ms. and Mist National Gay Reno-Texas '82 Contest is this Sunday, June 6, 6:00 p.m. at the Holiday Inn Central, 4640 (South) Main. —•— Montrose attorney Robert Schwab informs us that the second edition of the National Lesbian & Gay Referral Directory is about to go to press. Attorneys who wish to be listed should write the Texas Human Rights Foundation at 3128 Lemmon Ave. East, #304, Dallas. TX 75204. Schwab also tells us that he's still waiting on a ruling from Dallas in the constitutional challenge of section 21.06 of the Texas Penal Code, the so-called sodomy statute. Its been a year now since the trial, and Schwab says the ruling is likely to be a complex one. —•— Houston Data Professionals, a gay group, is to hold a reception for some of the conventioneers at the National Computer Conference, in progress this coming week in Houston. The reception is to be Tuesday evening at the Brasserie Too. This national convention is expected to draw 100,000 computer people from around the world to Houston. It's natural that a big chunk of these people are going to be gay. —•— This year's Fred Paez Memorial Concert for Gay Pride Week will be at Cullen Auditorium on the U of H campus June 26. The Montrose Symphonic Band, the Montrose Singers, the MCCR Choir and the Oaklawn Symphonic Band from Dallas will all combine for a spectacular show. There will be a free shuttle bus from Mary's, naturally. —•— The snazzy Gay Pride Week T-shirts are on sale around town for $6.00. Profits from the T-shirts go to the Gay Pride Week committee. So, buy a T-shirt and help finance Gay Pride Week
