Q-Patrol
1991-2002

 

The gay-bashing murders of Paul Broussard and Phillip Smith in the summer
of 1991 were the impetus for the founding of the Q-Patrol. Members of
Q-Nation Houston gathered at Charlie's Restaurant to discuss the formation
of a group similar to the old Montrose Patrol. The group was first described as a
Queer Nation affinity group, as early members were mostly part of the other
organization. But interest from the wider community soon expanded that reach,
and also (in order to get 501c3 status) the need to be on its own soon was realized.
Early leaders were Keith Stewart, Mark Gardner, Dave Westercamp, Glenn Holt,
and Connie Sawyer.
