Transcript 5TH annual TEXAS LESBIAN CONFERENCE DIVERSITY * UNITY COMMUNITY In 1988, a grassroots coalition of women in Dallas organized what is now the Texas Lesbian Conference in hopes of enhancing "Lesbian Visibility." Five years later, Texas lesbians are no longer invisible. As T.L.C. has traveled throughout Texas, our unity has built momentum. From Dallas to Houston to San Antonio to Austin, the image of Texas lesbians is strong and diverse. Our hopes, dreams, anger, joy, tears, fears, and expectations create a unique community. The 1992 Texas Lesbian Conference returns to Dallas to mark a milestone. T.L.C remains a grassroots organization committed to providing a platform for lesbians to speak.

BASICALLY: IT STINKS It is obvious that the mainstream media failed to understand the recent protest by Lesbian and Gay activists of the movie "Basic Instinct." The point that QUEER NATION was trying to make involved the visibility of real life people to contrast the image the media industry constantly portrays. This movie is yet another in the long list of negative portrayals of Gays and Lesbians. Catherine, (Sharon Stone) the killer is portrayed as a bi-sexual and she has a live-in female lover yet begins an affair with a police detective played by M i chae1 Doug1as. The protest was meant as a means to educate people, but that seems to have been missed in most reports of it. It is ironic that the movie "Fried Green Tomatoes" which has a positive, loving relationship between two women did not make it clear that this was in fact a Lesbian relationship. The book by Fannie Flagg makes it very clear but the filmmakers were afraid that the American movie going populace would not be accepting of the women as Lesbians. Apparently the makers of "Basic Instinct" had no problem in thinking that an ice-pick man killer bisexual/ lesbian in a mini-skirt would be accepted.
