Houston Mayor Annise Parker shot into the national spotlight this year when she was elected the first openly GLBT mayor of a large city. Hers is one of the many voices featured in the documentary, Montrose, Texas: The Transformation of a Neighborhood. The program, which prominently features Montrose Counseling Center and its seniors program SPRY, has aired numerous times on Houston PBS during its pledge drives. We are pleased to announce that KLRU, the PBS television station in Austin, has recently acquired the program.
Narrated by Houston PBS’s Ernie Manouse, this half-hour program features community leaders Suzanne Anderson, Marion E. Coleman, John Danielson, Ray Hill, Jimmy Carper, Brandon Wolf, and City Council Member Sue Lovell, among others. Rare footage from The Gulf Coast Archive and Museum of GLBT History brings back fond memories.
