Officials recently unveiled the logo for Pride 2000 and arc in the midst of collecting ballots from throughout the community that will elect grand marshals for the June 24 event. The all-volunteer committee is also hosting a regional conference and putting the final touches on a media workshop this month. The logo for Pride 2000 interprets the theme, "Take Pride, Take Joy, Take Action." Designed by local graphic artist Diane Jolley, the colorful design depicts two heads that are close enough to portray intimacy. Jolley said that the image can be interpreted as either a gay or lesbian couple and as a symbol of unity and love. The logo's violet, yellow and magenta colors were chosen for strength and warmth, Jolley said. The pink triangle, a symbol for gays since it was used as part of the Nazi persecution of gays, is also incorporated into the logo as a point of intimacy between the two faces, Jolley said. Local Pride organizers adopted the them from an international pride conference held in Scotland last October, said Jack Valinski, executive director of the Pride committee. For the second consecutive year, voting for parade grand marshals is community-wide, meaning residents of Harris and surrounding counties can take part, he said. Organizers are hoping to surpass last year's vote tally of about 200, Valinski said. To help, more than 3,000 copies of "Inside Pride"—the committee's newsletter—will be distributed throughout Houston and will include a ballot for people to fill out. Pride organizers also reversed a year-old decision and allowed local gay publications, like the / louston Voice, to include the ballot for residents to clip, fill out and mail to the pride committee, (Ballot, page 14) Ballots must be returned by Feb. 24 and should include a signature and proof of residency, like a copy of a driver's license. Voting will also be held Feb. 26 at the Houston Lesbian & Gay Community Center, 803 1 lawthorne, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Results of the vote will be announced March 9. Grand MarshaLs for the parade are divided among four categories;—female, male, honorary and honorary organization. Nominees for female Grand Marshal include Pat Gandy, a longtime community activist who is now retired; Anita Renteria, past president of the Greater Houston Gay and Lesbian Chamber of Commerce; Barbara Walker, a lesbian health advocate; and Tori Williams, co-founder of AssistHers, a volun- THIS YEAR I will set out to do something great for myself.
