Tom Poe, A 'Quiet Force' In Kansas City's Film, UMKC, LGBT And Faith Communities, Dies - KCUR

Monday, December 19, 2016

Tom was a rare individual who tried to make things happen in Kansas City without his ego attached. He tried to put people together and make things happen," says Tivoli Cinemas owner Jerry Harrington, noting that Poe had helped create the Film Society of Kansas City, and the Kansas City Filmmakers Jubilee/Kansas City FilmFest.Generous with his wit as well as his energies, Poe was a contributor to KCUR’s Walt Bodine Show and later Central Standard.“He had a depth of knowledge about pop culture history – not just film but also musical theater, popular music and all kinds of subcultures – that allowed him to put everything he commented on in context,” says Central Standard host Gina Kaufmann. “He had a sort of magical ability to make you think and make you laugh at the same time. The profoundness of the thought didn’t always become clear until you stopped laughing at the joke it was delivered with.”“I’ve seen so many sides to him,” says Tim Van Zandt, who won a seat in the Missouri House of Representatives in 1994.Van Zandt was Missouri’s first openly gay state representative, and Poe was an integral part of his campaign.Poe's political work included serving as president of Kansas City's Four Freedoms Democratic Club and the National Board of the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation.“He was always there, always at the forefront,” Van Zandt says of Poe’s activism. “He was always a presence in key moments in Kansas City’s LGBT community, very influential but not in a way that’s overpowering."Poe was also active (sometimes to the point of his own regret) in the Kansas City community. He spent a decade (at least) as a member of the Kansas City Board of Zoning Adjustment and the Independence Missouri Council on Economic Development and as treasurer of the Jackson County Tax Levi Board.“Everyone hates the government until it serves them,” he said last week, describing the city hall and Jackson County staff he’d met as “the most dedicated and honest caretakers of our tax money, making sure it provides desperately needed services.”Besides the fact that he had a hard time saying “No,” there was a reason he served on all those boards, Poe once told me: “If LGBT people really want equal rights, we can’t just do the glamorous stuff. We have to be willing to volunteer for all the boring, tedious stuff, too.”If that's sinning, we should all do it so boldly.C.J. Janovy is an arts reporter for KCUR 89.3. You can find her on Twitter, @cjjanovy.A memorial service for Tom Poe is scheduled for Sunday, December 11 at 2 p.m. at the Trinity United Methodist Church, 620 E. Armour Blvd., Kansas City, Missouri. ...
