THE NEWSPAPER OF MONTROSE, ISSUE #31, PUBLISHED WEEKLY McCoy's trial set to start Monday Accused in death of Fred Paez The often-postponed trial date for Houston police officer Kevin McCoy, charged with negligent homicide in the death of gay activist Fred Paez, finally appeared near as attorneys announced this past week that the trial was set to start at 9:00 a.m .. Monday, June I, in the courtroom of Judge J D. Guyon at JOI San Jacinto. Prosecuting attorney Brian Raines said he didn't anticipate any more delays and expected the trial to last anywhere from a few days to a week HouEiton Gay Political Caucus presi· dent Lee Harrington received a subpo· ena to appear as a witness. Paez was an administrative assist­ant for the GPC when he was shot June 27, 1980. The October 15, 1980 indictment says McCoy, "while under the influ· ence of an alcoholic beverage, placed a cocked, loaded pistol against the head of (Paez) and as a result thereof said pistol discharged," killing Paez. The misdemeanor charge is punisha­ble by a year in prison and a $2000 fine. Prosecutor Rains said the case will be tried in felony court because McCoy was a public official. A grand jury investigation resulted in the charges against the 25-year old officer. MrCoy was relieved of official duty with pay after being indicted. Paez encountered McCoy at a ware­house where the officer was working an off-duty serurity job. McCoy, a four­year police verteran, said Paez made sexual advances toward him in an alley, and, in the alleged attempt to arrest him, the officer's gun discharged. McCoy admitted drinking beer the night of the killing but denied being intoxicated. McCoy's lawyers had asked Judge Guyon to quash the indictment on the grounds that it did not accuse McCoy of committing a specific crime. The Fred Paez Task Force held an open community meeting in March attended by about twenty people to dis· cuss latest developments discovered in the investigation of the death of the gay activist. The meeting was the second time the organization had held such a meeting. The first occured shortly after Paez death. when five community leadert> were selected to conduct a "separate but cooperative" investigation with the District Attorney's office. Harrington, a member of the Task Force, described this latest meeting as "productive." A report was given concerning the alleged homophobic background of McCoy and how it might relate in court. The Task Force recounted meetings with the district attorney and his assistants. Task Force member James Kuhn, an attorney, described district attorney John Holmes as "terminally honest" in reponse to the attitude the Task Force perceived the district attorney's office having toward this case. Regardless of the personal attitude anyone in the distirct attorney's office might have toward gay rights, Kuhn said he felt a fair trial would occur and that the process up to that time had been "equitable." Kuhn cautioned that evidence in the case is extremely limited and we should expect a "not guilty" verdict. Added Harrington. "In this case, I feel our frustration can be properly vented by emphasizing the fact that homophobia can make itself visible in devastating ways, po8sibly even resulting in someone's death." Task Force member Ray Hill said he felt the group's work of watching this case was extremely well done. After hearing from the Task Force members, the group adopted a motion to establish a Fred Paez Memorial ~'und to sponsor gay people in a school of criminal jurisprudence. The group also voted to advertise in the gay media to obtain more money for the Memorial Fund. They said they would hold their next community meeting the day after the announcement of the verdict in McCoy's trial. The March 22 meeting was held at Metropolitan Community Church, 1919 Decatur.

The old version of the law said parades on a Sunday could not include more than eight blocks or one-half mile of a major thoroughfare, whi­chever was Iese. The new version makes an exemption for parades of less than two miles in length on Sundays between 1:00 and 7:00 p.m. The Houston Gay Pride Week Parade for the last two years made the pass down Westheimer from Shepherd to Bagby, a distance of about 21 blocks. The city's legal department advised the council that the new version of the law would not have an adverse effect on normal traffic paterns throughout the city. House Bill No. 795, an effort to place more minorities in high police positions, appeared in trouble this past week as the final days of the Texas Legislature approached and senators were debating other bills that most consi­dered more important. Houston Gay Political Caucus president Lee Har­rington testified before the Senate Affairs Committee May 20 at the request of Rep. Al Edwards of Houston, the Democrat who sponsored the bill in the House. Harrington said he was in favor of the bill, and told them so, because "its passage will enhance the possibility of better communication be­tween the police department and the people. If passed, the new law would create an avenue for public pressure concerning the appointment of assistants who, together, represent all of the Houston Community." After Harrington's testi­mony, the bill passed out of the committee and into the log-jam of the final minutes of the Lesgislative session with a favorable 7·2 vote. Sen . Mike Richards, a Houston Republican, was reported to be leading the opposition to the bill. The bill would have allowed Chief Johnson to appoint any one of three assistant chiefs from the rank-and-file if the selection was approved by the mayor. Under current procedures, the deputy police chief who scores highest on tests is automatically appointed to any of the three assisan t police chief positions which become open. Thus, those most likely to become assist­ant police chiefs are veteran white officers who have been in the force for many years and who monopolize the higher positions. Hetero­sexuals complain over loss of nude modeling licenses An attorney representing two Montrose nude modeli ng studios that cater to heterosex­uals appeared befo re City Council May 20 to complain, to no avail, about the rejection of his license applications. A city ordinance required nude modeling studios to obtain operating licenses from the city and said that a license would be denied if a business Ben Sargent Montrose News was within 1000 feet of a church, which the three businesses were, or were not, depending on your definition of a chuuch. The Blue Fox Studio at 1303 W. Alabama is within 1000 feet of Rothko Chapel, which is a park and meditation center featuring art works. Attorney Jim McBride said the Rothko Chapel is not a church. The Golden Girl Studios at Bute and W. Alabama is near a Hare Krishna meditation chapel, which McBride also said is not a church, as the members was said to have told him that they are not a church but "a way of life." McBride's request to have his licenses granted was denied by City Council on May 26. The MONTROSE VOICE is published every Friday. Offices: 3520 Montrose, suite 227, Houston, TX 77006.

IN YOUR LIVING ROOM·"· PAGE 4 I MONTROSE VOICE I MAY 29, 1981 Roger Staubach said to be fighting to "save children'' from "smut TV" In the old Anita Bryant style Fonner Dallas pro footballer Roger Staubach is leading the fight against what he called "cableporn," reported Hous­ton Chronicle columnist Ann Hodges this past week. Staubach was said to have grouped homosexuality and "women being brutally molested" in to the same category. '"What I'm telling you 1s so shocking, so threatening that you may not believe it." Hodges quoted Staubach in the May 26 edition of the paper. adding. '"But I can't let another day go by without alerting you to the danger that may invade your home. Homosexual acts, women being brutally molested and raped. and other explicit eex acts can now explode into your living room on some public access cable TV channels." Staubach, Hodges reported, was sending out letters under the banner of ''morality in Media" urging parents to join in his fight against those who would tum cable TV into '"a dangerous weapon that might be used against our children and grandchildren_" The Montrose Voice, the ONLY publication in the world JUST for Montrose The material sent out by Staubach to Hodges was said to be part of a general mailing by the organization and included a postage-paid return envelope requesting contribu­tions. 'La Cage' going to Broadway NEW YORK-Producer Allan Carr. the subject of much of Alan Cartnal's new book California Crazy, will be producing a Broadway ver­sion of La Cage aux Foiles next season, reported the New York Times in a copyrighted story through its news service May 15. If the show goes off. it will be Carr's first Broadway produc­tion. His film credits include co-producing Grease. The La Cage story started on a Paris stage, was made into a movie, imported into the U.S. on film, where it became the largest-grossing foreign film ever. A sequal, La Cage Foiles II is now touring the U.S. The story line in both revolves about two aging gay nightclub owners. In Carr's Broadway ver­sion, the locale will be moved from the French Riviera to New Orelans and will be retitled The Queen of Basin Street. the newspaper reported. Among the people Carr reportedly said were being involved included Houstonian Tommy Tune as a co-director with Mike Nichols. Tune will also choreograph the play, the paper said. The New York paper said that Carr expects the play to cost about $2.5 million and to go into rehearsal after Labor Day. He was said to be looking toward a Dec. 14 ten-week tryout in San Francisco. James Robison in debt, cuts back ministry HURST. Tex8'1-James Robi· son, one of the more vocal anti-gay te)evision ministers, is hurting and cuttinl( his staff down by about a third, a spokesman said in mid-May, reported UPI. Robison's program was being broadcast on about a hundred stations. including KHTV. channel 39 in Hous­ton, where it had been airing at 9:30 p.m. on Sundays. The news service said that it was told by Tammy Ledbetter. The State/ The Nation director of public relations for the James Robison Evangelis­tic Association, that about 50 positions of the 170-member staff were recently dropped. His electronic ministry was said to be more than $1 million in debt. About half of the debt was said to be for television time Robison was purchasing for his broadcasts. It was reported that ten stations were being dropped to help cut expenses, including stations in Los Angeles, Chicago and Denver. Houston was not mentioned in the UPI news item. Walter Bennett Advertising was handling the placing of the programs for Robison, and the news report said an agreement had been reached that would be salvaging the remaining stations. Other cutbacks reported to have been made included moving into less expensive offices, cutting the ministry's monthly magazine from 32 to 16 pages, and eliminating a toll-free telephone line which was used for counseling. The Federal Communica­tions Commission last Febru­ary refused to review a February 1980 decision that dismissed a complaint by Robison against WFAA-TVin Dallas. The association had charged that the station acted improperly and misinter­preted the fairness doctrine when it canceled the program James Robison Presents in February 1979. The program was canceled after Robison preached a sermon on moral decay in the United States that spoke derogatorily about gay rights activists and the gay move­ment. WFAA said it canceled the program because the station deals with controversial issues of public importance only in news and public affairs programs. Since the station is responsi­ble for everything on its airwaves, it is within the station's discretion to decide how best to meet its fairness­doctrine obligation to discuss controversial issues, the commissioners said.

HOLLYWOOD - "Be­cause I like my privacy, that's why!" the Divine BE'ITE MIDI.ER yelped at a neighbor when asked why she carefully guards her new address. Bette reportedly paid $950,000 for her cottage in the northern tip of Beverly Hills and will sink another baU a million into renova­tions, much of which will be designed to turn the house into a hideaway. "Do you know she's put­ting in about a dozen big trees," the neighbor shrugged. Reportedly, she's also gutted the bathroom and will put in an indoor bot tub so she can bathe her feet in the height of comfort - the star of "The Rose" bas often said they're the favor­ite part of her body. It's all a far cry from the one-bedroom flat she once bad in New Yorks' Green­wich Village, where the landlord used to love to turn off the bot water, she still claims. Bette's planning many changes in her life - such as doing a film with no vocaliz­ing - but she's going to keep her very conspicuous car, a white Porsche with license plates saying DIVINE. What else?

Feature What about the drug scene? If you've been told it's bad, it's worse. Everything that anyone could possibly do is being overdone in triplicate; over-drinking, over-sexing, over-drugging, over-spending and over-indulging in life as an endless pleasure. You name real names in your book. How did you first hear of gay movie mogul Allan Carr? Who didn't hear about Allan Carr! This man practically invented the word-publicity. I mean, Hollywood agents and movie producers just don't go to Chasen 'sand Ma Maison in Debbie Reynolds caftans and soiled tennis shoes with full length mink coats. Very few movie producers have blond boys with bulging biceps and sock-it-to-me smiles in their entourage. Carr is a pheno­menon. I did a story on him for a magazine. My research lasted six months.

Houghton Mifflin, pub­lisher, 2 Park Street, Boston, MA 02107. Hardcover $9.95. Reviewed by Joe DiSabato California Crazy by Alan Cartnal could be called a trashy Hollywood novel if it weren't for the fact that it's all true. It is categorized as 0 non­fiction" by its publisher, Houghton Mifflin, and Cart· nal swears that he is merely the chronicler of real life in Los Angeles. As Cartnal puts it, "Of course I'm a trashy wri­ter, but consider the territory. If you've heard California is bad; it's worse. Everything that anyone can possibly do is being overdone in triplicate: over-drinking, over-sexing, over-drugging, over-spending, over-eating and over­indulging in life as an endless pleasure. Reading California Crazy is like eating popcorn : once you •tart you can't stop. The book is a 8Cnes of profiles of the peo­ple who typify various social circles in L.A. There's "the ehopper"-Nancy Czar, who has refined the act of shop­pmg to an art (and you haven't shopped until you've done it on Rodeo Drive). There's "the dope dealer"­Ricco, who sells grade-A cocmne out of his Mark Cross briefcase an chauffeur-driven limousine to the wealthy of Beverly Hills. There's Carole, the married Brentwood nymphomaniac who makes it with every hot deliveryman, construction worker and waiter in sight. There's Stewart, the real·life model for the Richard Gere character in American Gigolo, who is paid a minimum of$100 per hour ("You must realize, this will be exactly one hour," Art This Week in Montrose (Saturday, May 30, through Friday, June 5) Art League of Houston-1953 Montrose-523-9530 All Media Open Show noon-4pm Saturday, I0am·4pm Monday through Friday.

And, of course, there's the strata of L.A, society around which all of the rest seem to revolve-gays. As Cartnal once put it, "The Valley of the Dolls has turned gay." Not your ordinary, everyday, run· of-the-mill gays, mind you, but Hollywood Gays, what Cart­nal has referred to as the "A­Gays." Beautiful boys from all voer the country who descend upon L.A. to find fame and for­tune, but who usually end up hustling either at society par­ties or on Santa Monica Boulevard. It's the gays of Boystown (as West Hollywood is now universally referred to), both rich and poor, like Paradise, the face of the 80s, the most successful model of his gener­ation, who is sure of every­thing but his sexuality; Lib­erty, one of the most famous black athlet.t>s of his era, who can't afford to be identified as gay but who can't stay away from the pleasures of Boys­town; and Blackie Norton, the gay Godfather, the handsome owner of Ciro's West-the infamous disco/nightclub that serves as the dance hall campus for all the clean-cut, blond California boys that seem to populate every beach movie and Coke commercial. And last but certainly not least, rich Hollywood moguls like Alan Carr (producer of Grease and Can't Stop the Music), whose Hollywood Party to end all parties begins each day at 10:00 a.m., and whose estate is referred to as Mount Olympus. Just sample part of Cartnal's description: There are two things you never discuss in Hol· lywood. One is drugs. The other is homosexuality.

By day the crowd was gay. The rule of order in the t-Own was that anyone stepping foot in Carr's place fell into one of three categories: brains, money or ass. Even now gorgeous boys-tanned, bronzed, fine-toned, golden, Wasp, blond, blue-eyed, straight­teethed- were descending the magnificantly car­peted stairways from the netherwold of Carr's upstairs bedrooms and floating majestically toward the pooJ. From his bedroom, Carr would watch them in popsicle­colored Speedo swinsuits marching in unison toward the chaise lounges by the paol, draped in terry-cloth towels. Carr had given such wonders of the world a name: Twinkies. Later, when everyone in tout Hollywood picked up on the term for the golden ones who came to Cinema City searching for fame and fortune, Carr chang· eel the name to 1'riscuts. Whatever you called them, the town regarded such goings-on as equal to the end of western Civili­zation. Roman, they called it. Like some emperor in a Bibical epic, they said. And Hollywood loved every minute of it. They had come from Florida, Nebraska, Ohio, South Dakota, Wisconsin, for this. The overstate­ment. The extravagance. The unequaled decadence. There was nothing like it. Not anywhere. Europe had fallen under the Black Plague of Social­ism . Upper-class Euro· peans no longer had entrlle to flaunt their opu­lent lifestyles. London was a mess. New York too provincial and ronserva­ti ve. Only Hollywood could produce a modern wonder like Carr. The last of the Grands Seigneurs.

A Jiving testament that piz­zaz had not vanished from the face of Holly­wood. And pizzazz is what Calif or· nia Crazy is all about, written from the viewpoint of an insider. It's a cultural chroni­cle of life in "El Lay"-both gay and straight. Cartnal, a former staff writer for the Los Angeks Times, editor at New West magazine, a current con­tributor to Esquire, an editor at Los Angeks Magazine, and a regular guest on ABC's A.M Los Angeles with Regis Phil­bin and Cindy Garvey, know­ing hereof he speaks. "Of course, I'm a gay wri- Books ter," says Cartnal, "but it's not a big deal to me. I've been very public about being gay. I came out of the closet on television-told my whole story to millions of viewers. I wrote California Crazy and the sections of the book about the gay world in El Lay from the viewpoint of 'so what."' "Some people may read about Boystown and get very threatened. That's where they are about gayness. To me, it's just one part of my life. I think Hemmingway wrote about his world, Fitzgerald about his. This is the society I entered, I found fascinating, that I want to reveal to my readers. The time has come for a cultu1al reporter about gay times."

Days close with hugs and kisses (C) 1981 Suburban Features Trerul by Henry McClurg A "juice bar" in Houston? I have in front of me the latest issue of Chicago's Gay Life newspaper, the leading gay publication in that city. In the back section, like in the VOICE, they have a listing of gay bars in the area. There are 76 bars listed, of which two of them are labeled "non-alcoholic." I think that's an idea who's time has come in Houston I'm not knocking drinking for most people. It's oneoflife's pleasures. (As W.C. Fields said in My Little Chi~k-a-dee, just before hitting the sack, "Ahh, sleep. One of life's greatest pleasures-next to drink, of course.") Alcoholism in the gay community is higher than in other communities. Now it's not our fault, of course. In the early days of coming out, gay bars were it. They were the only places where there were other gay people out openly. So we congregated in the bars, following our natural body instincts for social connections. and, of course, drank. And as the years rolled on. we drank, and drank. and drank, a• gay bars still continued to be our "community centers." In our alcohol bars you could JUStorder grapefruit juice or a Coke. But you know you won't. In a non-alcoholic bar you'd have no choice. To be successful. a non-alcoholic bar would have w have an identical setup to an alcohol bar: Low lights, great music over a good sound system, snappy bartenders-and a variety of exotic drinks (without alcohol\ to help keep you from missing that alcohol taste. A non-alcoholic bar in Houston would not be a big money­maker. I don't think. Not yet. But it might turn a moderate profit. However, the important thing, is that for a lot of gay people, it could be a place to go where they could have the temptation of a "social connection·• without having the temptation of alcohol.
