Domestic Violence in the Gay & Lesbain Community Now that everyone has probably heard two or three O. J. Simpson jokes and most of America is looking at domestic violence a little differently, it is time to remind ourselves that this is not just a problem in the heterosexual community. Domestic violence happens in the Gay and Lesbian community also. And it can happen to anyone. Every night in Houston there are Lesbian couples who get into arguments in which one person may use hurtful or degrading names about the other, threaten to call a parent or boss and reveal their partner's sexual orientation, threaten to throw their partner out of the house, or even phsically attack their partner. Such incidents are not often reported. You probably won't be hearing a taped recording of a 911 call with one Lesbian screaming jealous accusations while the other is begging for quiet so as not to wake up the kids. But it happens. When domestic violence does happen in the Lesbain community, there are women's shelters for the abused woman to go to...but she may not wish to let them know her sexual orientation. Most shelters claim not to be homophobic, but it takes more than good intentions and occasional training sessions on cultural diversity to combat homophobia. The situation is worse for Gay men. When domestic violence happens in the Gay male community, there are no shelters to go to. The Gay and Lesbian community has worked very hard to gain acknowledgment for all definitions of "family". Unfortunately, there is more work to do to gain acknowledgment for the traditional problems that are associated with families - such as the problem of domestic violence. And the first step in this process is for the Gay and Lesbian community to acknowledge that domestic violence is not just a heterosexual problem.

While her act is gay in content, her appearance is aimed at a playful parody of stereotypes, and the material is universally appreciated by anyone with an open sense of humor. "My songs and humor are drawn," she says, "from my own experiences as a short, left-handed, Jewish lesbian from New York, which are considerably different from the experiences of an average person from, let's say, Columbus, Nebraska." And the quick-witted Lavner, who stands only five feet tall, performs in black leather. Tickets for the concert go on sale, September 1st at Crossroads Market, Inklings - an alternative bookshop and MCCR. The proceeds benefit the MCCR HIV Ministries and Music Ministries; which includes Jubilation - mixed ensemble, HeavenSound - handbell choir, Gloryland Singers - an old-time Gospel Music Ensemble and the Sanctuary Choir.
