Transcript May 29,1981 / Montrose Voice / page 3 Montrose News City changes law so gay parade can follow traditional route Houston City Council May 26 amended its parade ordinance after pressure from gay community leaders who said that under the old version the Houston Gay Pride Week Parade would not be able to wind its way down its traditional route. 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 waB less. 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. Houston's Gay Pride Week Parade this year is scheduled to start at 5:30 p.m. June 28. Gay Pride Week Committee chairperson Larry Bagneris Jr. had said that if the law was not changed he was prepared to zig-zag the parade throughout Montrose, obeying the eight-blocks-per-street limit, but creating havoc for traffic and the police. HPD appointments bill appears dead, despite GPC testimony AUSTIN—A House-approved bill that would give the Houston Chief of Police the power to make his own appointments as top assistants would probably not pass this legislative session, said the bill's Senate sponsor, Chet Brooks of Pasadena, a Democrat. 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 ofthe 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 assisant 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 modeling studios that cater to heterosex- uals appeared before 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 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.
