The Montrose Inn is NOT a motel. We're NOT a hotel. We're a Bed & Breakfast. (And we're Basic & Butch. We're the B&B that's B&B.) We're completely different! New Editor... (Continued from Page 1) Gay & Bi Equal Rights and Liberation gave Bell the opportunity to take her years of activism to the national level in a paid position as the National Organizer for the march. Billy Hileman, one of the march co- chairs said of Bell. "Deborah was the outstanding candidate in an impressive group of applicants. Her experience as a feminist organizer is incredible. She brings to the organizing effort determination, competence and a commitment to grassroots organizing." Work with the march included working on several publications where Bell was called on to write, edit, sell ads, do layout, and deliver papers. "It was an incredible experience," Bell says of the year she spent in the Nation's capital. "I learned so much, got to work with outstanding leaders from all over the country, and even got to allend an inaugural ball." One of my cherished memories from thai year is being asked to read names at the national display of the Names Project Quilt in 1992. Not only was I moved by Ihe fact that my list of names included some of "my guys' from Bering, but the person who 1 read after, was Jeanne White. Ryan White's mother." Asked about what the march meant to her on a personal level. Bell slated, "I had to call upon the best of myself and saw the resi of the community do the same to make the march be the successful event that it was. extremely proud of the work that we did. vas such a monumental effort, and we pulled it off." Bell laughingly added, "of course, now I think I'm capable of handling anything, even editing the Houston Voice." Bell says she has a hard act to follow. "I think Sheri will really be missed. She is well respected in the community as a very lalented ter and editor, which is one reason I nominated her for Grand Marshal of Pride Week in 1992. 1 know I am sorry to see her leave Houston, but understand her need to take care of herself and her family situation. She also has two boys she is raising alone and I know what that is like. She will at least have family around to help in Louisiana," Bell sympathizes. "I hope that she won't leave us entirely, because there will always be a place in the Houston Voice for her writings," Bell said. Are big changes planned for the paper? Bell stated that she doesn't think that is the case, at least for the time being. "Sheri and I are different people and of course have different styles, so there are bound to be some changes. I hope I can keep the best of the foundation she worked to build here and take it from there," Bell says. She also says she welcomes the guidance of members of the community and may even do some focus groups in the near future. "Unlike a purely commercial venture, as a community newspaper, we have a responsibility to the community we serve. To me that is Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgendered people. not only in Montrose, but in the Greater Houslon area, in and outside the loop. I need to know ways that can best be done. Is there a segment we are not serving? A way to do it better? What do people like or dislike about what is being done now? What do our readers want? It also means the businesses we give our money to. Of course, we need to have the financial backing of our advertisers, so we will also be looking at ways to better serve them and build revenues. We are counting on iheir support, especially so we can get better equipment in here. That will make our jobs a lot easier," Bell emphasized. I do have some ideas that I am really excited about, things I want to write, and see covered. My editorial column 'In My Own Voice' premiers in this issue. We really welcome submissions from the community, book reports, news and culture, as well as our our personal stories. Il is so important that we report what our lives really are. It is the documentation of what we are all about as a people, what history will know of us." Bell concluded by saying, "I've only been at work a few days, but there is a good staff here. Jack, Maggie, Carolyn, Lee, Matt, Ray and Al are working hard and care about the quality of their work. My first day was the busiest day of the week for them, a Wednesday - the day the paper is put to bed (sent to the printer). I was very impressed. Il is a real team effort. The writers also work hard to bring interesting columns and information. I've been following their work as a reader and am looking forward to working with Glen, Jon, Curt, Larry, Jazz, Javier, B.R. and the others." 1996 PRIDE GUIDE MAILING VOLUNTEER ALERT What: 1996 Lesbian/Gay Pride Guide - stuffing, sealing, labeling, and bagging Where: Multi-purpose Service Center-1475 West Gray- When Saturday, June 1, 1996 9:30 a.m. to noon 1:00 p.m. to 9:30 p.m Backstage Classroom A &B Contact Patrick Mcllvain 869-0982 Bring a friend!
