Transcript June 5,1981 / Montrose Voice 3 Montrose News GPC endorses statement deploring Atlanta killings The Gay Political Caucus last month adopted a resolution saying it joins with national gay organizations in denouncing the recent wave of killings in Atlanta of black children. Issued through the National Gay Task Force, the statement of national gay leaders said they "join to state our shared grief and outrage at the senseless murders of Atlanta's children, indeed, our children and the nation's children, to express our support and sympathy for the families and friends of the children, and to convey our sense of community with the gay people and gay organizations of Atlanta." "In short," the national statement said, "we wish to express how the organized national gay community feels about the children of Atlanta." NGTF said the statement represented the consensus of Dignity International, a gay Catholic organization; Integrity, a gay Episcopalian group; the National Coalition of Black Gays; the Universal Fellowship of Metropolitan Community Churches, the large national chain of gay churches; and the NGTF itself. Said the NGTF statement, "We have seen the response of Atlanta's gay community—their support fo the Atlanta Task Force as individuals and as institutions, especially the work of the Gay Atlanta Minority Association and Frank Scheuren, the openly gay member of Atlanta's Community Relations Council. We are proud of these contributions." Jim Kepner, David Goodstein, chosen as speakers The Gay Archives of Texas, a projectof Integrity/Houston, announced that Jim Kepner, longtime California gay activist and founder of the National Gay Archives, will give a presentation in Houston on Monday, June 29, at 7:00 p.m.; 3405 Mulberry. "He is probably the most notable authority on gay history in the United States, and we know that Houston will be very interested in his presentation," said Richard Burkhart, director ofthe Gay Archives of Texas. The Gay Political Caucus announced that another California activist, David Goodstein, will address its Gay Pride Week educational forum a week earlier on June 22, 7:30 p.m. at the First Unitarian Church, 5210 Fannin. Goodstein, owner of The Advocate, is deeply involved in The Advocate Experience, a gay self-awareness program. He will speak on "Our Challenges During the Next Decade," said a spokesperson for GPC. Goodstein was planning on being in Houston at that time anyway to attend several Advocate Experience seminars. Kepner began a collection of gay periodicals and articles in the 1940s, which later became the National Gay Archives. He has worked for over fifty organizations and written over 1000 reviews, news reports and articles over a 35-year period. Both the lectures by Kepner and Goodstein were planning on being free and open* to the public. Body found A 27-year old Houston man was found apparently shot to death in a vacant lot in Montrose May 30, according to published police reports. Investigators said that children found the body of Alvin Scott of 1547 Allen Parkway about 5:00 p.m. in a lot in the 1500 block of West Dallas, it was reported. It appeared he had been dead for several hours and had a wound in his side, officers said, as reported by the Houston Chronicle. Police said they found identification on the body but there was no wallet or money, the newspaper said, adding that no arrests in the case were immediately made. Policeman McCoy's trial postponed— Duncanson elected president of Westheimer Colony Says priorities should be to clean up the neighborhood Montrose businessman Warren Duncanson was elected last Tuesday, June 2, to be president of the Westheimer Colony Association, the civic club claiming the lower Westheimer area. again The association is most famous for its twice-a-year Westheimer Arts Colony Festival, which attracts hundreds of thousands of people into the neighor- hood each spring and fall. Duncanson, who is gay, said it was the first time a gay person was elected to be in charge of the organization. He said he would be diving into his job with full steam and his top priority would be to "clean up" certain sections of the neighborhood. "This is Houston's gay neighborhood and surely we deserve better than some of the things we have around here," he said. Duncanson's term is one year. Duncanson's business interests include Byman's Home Furnishings on Westheimer. It happened again, over the objection of the prosecuting attorney. The trial for Houston police officer Kevin McCoy, charged with negligent homicide in the death of gay activist Fred Paez, was delayed until August because McCoy's defense attorney told the judge he had another trial in progress—a murder case in Conroe. The postponment was granted June 1 by Judge J.D. Guyon. Prosecuting attorney Brian Raines strongly objected but to no avail. Paez was an administrative assistant for the GPC when he was shot June 27, 1980. The October 15, 1980 indictment says that McCoy, "while under the influence 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. The case is to go to trial in a felony court because the 25-year-old officer was a public official. McCoy was relieved of official duty with pay after being indicted. Paez encountered McCoy at a warehouse where the officer was working an off-duty security job. McCoy, a four- year 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.
