Transcript w, editorial: The successful passage of the Sexual Preference plank at the IWY Conference was due to the efforts of many people; not just lesbians, and not just delegates. I have many mixed emotions and feelings about that weekend. As a Houstonian I saw my hospitality misused and my credibility questioned; as a non-delegate I was made to feel like a dutiful wife who must not question or interfere with "men's work"; and as a lesbian I had to come to terms with the alienation I felt from other lesbians. On the other hand, I was proud to be from Houston as I stood in Sam Houston Coliseum armed with a WE ARE EVERYWHERE balloon in one hand and a Woman-Loving Woman poster in the other; I was proud to be among the large crowd of non-delegates showing not only our support but our strength from the gallery; and I was proud to be a lesbian as I embraced other women around me with a sense of satisfaction and victory after the vote. As we started for the celebration, I realized the one word that was missing from my balloon. The one word that I have used countless times to impress upon homophobic people who have us neatly stacked into one stereotypical mold—WE ARE EVERYWHERE-DIFFERENTLY! As lesbians we do not all have the same needs, desires, or opinions0 We do not always agree but we must maintain a continuous dialogue so that we can learn from each other and work together in spite of our differences. -Claire PBT wishes to express their sincere appreciation to the following persons who helped in the production of this issue; Judy A., Bert, and Marion.
