Transcript 16 MONTROSE VOICE/MAY 16. 1986 Editorial 'Houston Forum' is Not Behaving Responsibly By Henry McClurg Publisher, Montrose Voice There is a health crisis in Gay America. It is AIDS. Thousands have already died. Thousands more will. Most of those who have died are our gay brothers. Also sad, there are many gay men who do not now have AIDS but who will get it. These are men who are not practicing Safe Sex—men who are still living the carefree life they lived five years ago. Men who are gambling. In response to the health crisis, a number of Safe Sex organizations have been formed across the country. At meetings of these organizations (usually several times a week), an atmosphere is presented that is somewhat like a baths. (But unlike a baths, there are no private areas where unsupervised activity can occur.) In Houston, the new group that has formed is called J.O.E. It is a private organization and admission is by membership. They have been meetingsincethe first of April in a space leased by the Montrose Voice and donated by the Voice to J.O.E. for this purpose. (The Voice contributes to many worthwhile Montrose and gay community organizations.) A competitor of the Voice, the Houston Forum, is attempting to make a political issue out of the matter—for their own financial benefit. The Forum's chief advertising salesman, Bar Wilson, in the past two weeks has contacted city government officials and Voice advertisers in an effort to economically harm the Montrose Voice for its part in donating the facilities for this group. (The city government officials, in turn, contacted the Voice and told us, after a short inquiry, that they saw nothing they should be concerned with.) J.O.E. meetings have already been attended by officials of the Montrose Clinic, the AIDS Foundation and the Montrose Counseling Center. (All officials attended in a personal capacity, not as official representatives of their organizations.) And each gave their personal approval to the concept of J.O.E. and to the meetings. It is fair when a competitor ofthe Voice attempts to court our advertisers by offering a better product, better service, better prices, etc. But it's not fair when a Voice competitor contacts government officials and some of our non-gay advertisers—and sends anonymous letters—and attempts to flush homophobia to the surface for use as a competitive tool to economically harm or attempt to embarrass. Anonymous letters? This past Wednesday, we received a letter to the "Editor— Houston Forum, Montrose Voice and TWT." It is unsigned by "A concerned reader—all three publications." "Hey Joe, don't bite the hand that feeds you!" it began. I have not really been able to figure out what the letter's point is. It is lengthy and rambling, somehow alleging that someone is discriminating? And because someone is discriminating, someone is "biting the hands that feed you"? Oh well, you won't find this anonymous letter reprinted here in the Voice. And probably not in TWT. But perhaps you will find it reprinted in this week's Forum. Why? Because, our analysis reveals, it was typed on the same typewriter that the Forum uses to type its invoices to advertisers. if EIGHT MY.

This short, forceful novel, written over two decades ago, is now becoming a word-of-mouth classic. Carol Seajay, in Feminist Bookstore News, writes: "I picked up this book to glance through it for a few minutes one day, and ZAP, I was gone. The quick concise sentence structure? The compelling story line? ... I read this as the story of a young dyke-to-be setting off into the world to make her fortune. And encountering incredible - but all too common - obstacles."
