Transcript MARCH 21. 1986 /MONTROSE VOICE 11 Pedestrian Killed by Auto A 47-year-old Houston man was killed Tuesday in the 2200 block of Montrose as he pushed a grocery cart across the street. Benjamin Hooks was crossing Montrose in front of the Kroger supermarket when, according to police reports, he was struck, possibly by two cars. Police have questioned one motorist who said he hit Hooks after another car hit him and sped away. The vehicle which left the scene was described as a white or light blue Dodge or Chrysler. Letters Seeks GPW Board Seat From Ray Hill I have announced for one of the positions on the Montrose Activities Center/ Gay Pride Week board. And I very seriously want to serve in that position. I am interested in GPW's transition from an ad hoc, fresh beginning organization to one with a stable ongoing board. I, like many others, applaud the change to tax deductible status; but hope we can maintain the freshness of annual rebirth and the flexibility that our original structure allowed. My history with GPW goes back to 1975. In June 1975 I was inspired by the Texas Gay Task Force conference in San Antonio, which functioned as Texas' GPW activity. Encouraged by Morris Kight from Los Angeles, TGTF's speaker that year, to start some kind of GPW activity in Houston. I joined Rev. Bob Falls of MCCR, Pokey Anderson, Rita Wanstrom and Jerry Miller of Integrity, in a news conference announcing the organization ofthe Gay Political Caucus and that future gay pride weeks in Houston would not be uncelebrated. In 1976, about 200 of us marched from Main at Bell north to Texas Avenue and back to Bell on Fannin. GPW activities in 1977 were limited to a rally at Cherryhurst Park as only three weeks before some 5000 of us had marched and demonstrated on the occasion of Anita Bryant's visit to Houston. Gay pride was beginning to be a reality in Houston. 1978 will be remembered for Houston Town Meeting I, but there was also a calendar of events with several days of activities including our first National Day of Remembrance, a tradition that is still a part of GPW. I played various roles in the planning and execution of GPW each of those years. In 1981, Rita Wanstrom and I were grand marshals for the parade. Since 1981, my involvement in GPW has been more group associated than as an individual. In recent years I have been invited to participate in GPW activities in other cities, and I do so when those events do not conflict with our celebrations. I want and need your support. Anyone attending the next GPW meeting (Dignity Center, .5217 Fannin, Sunday, March 211, 5:00 p.m.) may vote. Other GPW matters will be discussed and attendance at three of the GPW meetings qualifies one to vote in the grand marshal's election. There are no membership requirements except the excitement of planning Gay Pride Week activities. Please come. I need your help to keep the excitement growing.
