Transcript HOUSTON VOICE/ JUNE 21. 1996 9 Message from the Parade Co-Chairs By ROBIN DUNCAN & RAY RAMIREZ O.K. gang, the big day is fast approaching and we want to send a few special messages throughout the community. First of all, in consideration of those with special needs, there will be two "Safe Tenls" set up along the parade route. One will be "air conditioned" and is in the parking lot of Hollywood Video (The old Tower Theater in case anyone has forgotten). There will be seating provided and it is wheelchair accessible. The other location is the parking lot of 811 Westheimer. There will also be water stations in both of these areas. Please spread the word if you know of any folks who could benefit from these special areas. And please, be respectful of those who need the special seating. The parade line-up (between W. Alabama and Westheimer on Hazard and Wood- head near Lanier Jr. High) will begin at 2:00 p.m., with all units in place by 4:00 p.m. Floats will be lining up on Harold, east of Woodhead, all other units should be in consecutive number order. Since Hazard and Woodhead will be closed to traffic during this time, please avoid the area unless you have official business there. The parade will step off promptly at 5:00 p.m., go East along Westheimer to Taft, where it will then mm in to Lovett Blvd. The Festival is at thai site, so you can just follow ihe end of the parade to the party! Be sure to protect yourselves from the sun and heat. Wear sun block, a big hat. shades, and drink plenty of water (carbonated beverages are not good thirst quenchers). Pets are better off left at home. Lastly, but by no means least, trash containers will be set up along the route and at the Festival site on Lovett. PUT THE TRASH WHERE IT BELONGS. The Pride Committee is responsible for the clean up of the area on Monday, and you can make our jobs a lot easier by helping us out. If you have kept up with the on going debate in the Houston Voice, you are aware that there is much hostility from area residents and businesses regarding the mess the Westheimer Festivals make. Be sure not to block residential driveways and respect private property, do not destroy lawns or use Ihem as toilets. Let*s prove we are an example to follow, by not littering and by properly disposing of trash. Have a fabulous Pride Week, we'll see you on Sunday! Happy Trails! What You Need to Know Lack of information is a big problem in the HIV community. Many people living with HIV/AIDS lose valuable rights and benefits because ihey just don"t know the proper procedure of steps to take to protect themselves. Attorney Mitchell Katine and Social Worker Roseann Houseman have teamed- up to help [he community by offering a series of free workshops on various topics. The workshops will cover everything from how to use health insurance and go on long-term disability, to employment issues and the preparation of estate planning documents. Various topics will be covered and each is designed specially to teach you what you need to know. The Friday workshops will be held at Oncol Medical Associates, 4140 Southwest Freeway. 4th floor from 6 to Workshops 8:00 p.m. There is no fee to attend and will be held each month, except November. Everyone is invited to attend, but due to limited seating reservations must be made by calling 961-7100. How To . Schedule June 28—How to go on Long term disability.

Free HIV Testing at Clinic The Montrose Clinic will expand its HIV testing hours in recognition of National HIV Testing Day, June 27. Regular hours will be expanded to start two hours earlier at 11:00 a.m. and continuing to 5:00 p.m. The testing is offered free of charge but a donation is requested ($0-$20), however no one is ever turned away for inability to pay. Appointments are encouraged though nol required by calling (713) 520-2000. This will be the second annual National HIV Testing Day campaign which began last year through the efforts of the National Association of People with AIDS. HIV while not as yet curable, is becoming a more manageable condition as a result of new medicines and better health programs. However, knowing one's own HIV status, regardless of age, race, gender, or sexual orientation, is the only way to begin potentially life-prolonging early treatments. The Montrose Clinic offers one-on- one peer pre-test and post-test counseling. The clinic provides a comforta ble and professional environment where client anonymity and privacy is highly protected. Currently, Houston ranks seventh in the nation for the number of AIDS cases and Texas ranks fourth among the states in the nation. The Clinic urges all persons who have never been tested or not tested recently to schedule an appointment. The Montrose Clinic plays a pivotal role in Houston's HIV care, providing the most HIV tests for a city site and offering specialized HIV medical and research services.

I specializes in identifying unme needs and developing client-cen tered programs to address those needs The professional staff and volun teers of the Clinic are dedicated lo pre venting the spread of disease, provid ing early diagnosis and promo appropriate intervention.
