The Gay and Lesbian Allience of Northeast L.A. held a congradulatory celebration for their successful takeover of the Historic Highland Park Neighborhood Council, at their first meeting, last night, of a two-year term. Traesurer Joan Potter, also Treasurer of the Gay and Lesbian Allience, as well as Ebell Club, and other associations throughout H.P. recieved special recognition for "striking a blow against homophobia in Highland Park." Mr. Tom Topping, a local publisher from a well known family in Eagle Rock, was demonized for publishing a story last month regarding the stealing of NELA ELECTIONS entitled, Bike Advoctes Steal Democracy! When this writer tried to inform the new NC that President Alcaraz had already declared "Patch dead", as advertising goes, the Chair would not recognize me. The Uptown Gay and Lesbian Allience wants no more ads in Mr. Topping's papar,the Boulevard Sentinel.
