New Executive Board Sets
1984 Goals
"OHR has made a real difference
in my llfe. I hate to think what
life in Tulsa would be like for gay
people without OHR."
In a way, this statement by one
relatively new Tulsan and OHR member

and gay men, the OHR newsletter
is their only informational
link to the gay community. For
others, the OHR Helpllne makes the
difference between loneliness/despair

The 1984 OHR Executive Board has
dedicated itself to making this a
terrific year for OHR, for the entire
Tulsa gay community. Symbolic
of this effort is our first major
speaker of the year, David Goodstein,
publisher Of the ADVOCATE,
the nation’s leadlng gay newsmagazine.
We hope this will see standard
for the programs and projects we
undertake this year.
Look for continuing improvements
in the newsletter, the new outreach
efforts both to the gay and the
straight communities, for increased
membership, for programs both educational
and fun, ranging from our
Women’s Task Force to a terrific
special guest at the Mr. Tulsa contest.
This Executive ~oard will strive
to be creative, enthusiastic, and
energetic, yet realistic,
goal-oriented, and organized. Our
success will depend largely on
you--your ideas, your support, your
participation, your constructive
criticism, and when deserved, your
