Transcript The GPC will need lots of volunteers to cover short and easily walked assignments on Sunday, May 30. Come to Mary's patio, naturally, around 2:30 in the afternoon for the festivities—including the band—before going out on a short walking assignment. The most politicla football End of June is the last chance for the passage of the ERA. And there are lots of people from Houston planning to go to Oklahoma City June 5 to demonstrate their support of the ERA, hoping that Oklahoma will approve it before the deadline. Local activist Carrie Richardson has been urging absentee balloting in the June 5 run-off election in order to van pool to Oklahoma City. She told Wednesday's GPC meeting: "We need to support the ERA. If we can't pass the ERA, gay rights won't make it either." Whoops Traditionally, the GPC in Houston has been most active in the Democratic Party. Though there have been several attempts by the GPC to foster activism within the Republican Party, only recently has there been any interest shown by gay Republicans in organizing. Following Wednesday's GPC meeting, there were a dozen Republicans who stayed late to talk among themselves about organizing. Besides agreeing to meet again, they were also in agreement about one other thing—they did not want to be affiliated with the GPC. Explained one, "They're Democrats, we're Republicans." That is how politics Hill scolds 'high society' group From Ray Hill Houston Human Rights League 2For many years now I know by sight many members of the uptight semi- closeted set. I remember their cruising the main street/Texas Avenue circuit when I was just a kid. From time to time I would see their names in the society column in one of the newspapers as: "Society Realtor was seen ..." doing this or that; or "Society Decorator ..."was seen here or there. It was much later that I learned that "Society" was not in fact an adjective synomious with "uptight, closeted homosexual." Many of these pety-celebs celebrated their names appearing in print by getting drunk and making late night personal apperances at the infamous Milby and Auditorium Hotel basement tearooms. Over the years I've felt sorry for these economically flush flunkies to the establishment. They are sufficiently guilt ridden to be viewed as "good queers" by the "good ol' boy" power brokers. I even looked the other way when one of them made large contributions to the Jack Heard's gay baiting campaign against Mayor Whitmire's successful landslide. But I draw the line when I learn that some of the same people are aiding and abetting the vice squad's campaign of harrassment in Montrose. Innocent people are being arrested and jailed at the encouragement of these anacronisms in our community. I suppose someday soon I'll have to write the column Marge Crumbaker chose not to print. Correction Last issue, in a comment from Ray Hill, it was stated that the Houston Police Westheimer foot patrol was funded by Near- town Association. This was incorrect. The hiring of off-duty Houston policemen to walk the 100 to 1000 blocks of Westheimer during weekends and at certain other times is a project of the Westheimer Colony Association.
