Transcript 10 Montrose voice/June 4,1982 Gay press holds Denver convention Members of the Gay Press Association held their first convention over the Memorial Day weekend in Denver. Over 100 members of the association from around the United States attended the three-day conference held at the city's downtown Holiday Inn. The Gay Press Association is a nonprofit, professional trade organization dedicated to the betterment of journalism in the gay community. GPA's members include publishers, editors, writers, salespeople, photographers, artists and administrative personnel from the gay media as well as gay journalists who work in the non-gay media. Three representatives of the MONTROSE VOICE attended. Realizing a need to bring all members of the gay press together into one cohesive national organization, the GPA was organized in 1981. The group is attempting to make an impact on the quality of gay journalism by establishing ethical and stylistic guidelines, sponsoring educational programs, and taking stands to uphold the rights of the gay media by fostering a strong national network of journalists and business people. Keynote speakers at the convention were Randy Shilts, openly gay reporter for the San Francisco Chronicle and author of "The Mayor of Castor Street," a biography of Harvey Milk; and Arthur Bell, well-known gay columnist for New York's Village Voice. Association elections were held on Sunday and Joe DiSabato of New York, owner of Rivendell Marketing, an advertising representative firm specializing in the gay press, was re-elected president. Mark Segal of the Philadelphia Gay News was reelected vice president. Jack Campbell ofthe Club Baths Chain and president of Campbell Publishing, which has connections to Florida's gay newspaper, The Weekly News, was picked by the southern states caucus, which includes Texas, as its representative on the board of directors. The southern caucus also voted to hold a regional convention in Atlanta in November. A highlight of the convention was the unveiling of a new computer system and the establishment of the "GPA Wire Service." DiSabito said the new service will revolutionize the transmission of gay news from around the country—news that formerly traveled by mail from one gay publication to another. National gay news will be available to members who join the service instantaneously, thereby shortening the time gap between the time that news happens and the time that it is made available to readers of gay publications. Publications subscribing to the GPA Wire Service will have the capability of both receiving and transmitting news stories and features, which means that late-breaking news stories in Houston could be put on the wire service by the VOICE and these stories will be immediately available to other gay publications around the country for inclusion in their next issues. The VOICE said it expects to be "on line" on the wire service by August 1. DiSabito said that the real beneficiaries of this new technology will be the readers of member gay publications.
