centromere detachment from spindle pole body involved in meiotic chromosome organization 
chromosome localization to nuclear envelope involved in homologous chromosome segregation +   
homologous chromosome movement towards spindle pole in meiosis I anaphase  
homologous chromosome pairing at meiosis +   
The meiotic cell cycle process where side by side pairing and physical juxtaposition of homologous chromosomes is created during meiotic prophase. Homologous chromosome pairing begins when the chromosome arms begin to pair from the clustered telomeres and ends when synaptonemal complex or linear element assembly is complete.
