By BINNIE FISHER ~br more than 30 years, Larry l,ingle has dr votl'<I his life to selling books and videos to the gay community in SC\eral cities, including Dallas, ~cw York and Houston. Ln~t week. the last remnant of his one­time gay literary empire fell when the Lobo Bookshop & Cafe closed. Lingle blames the demise of the store on booming Internet sales, competition with his vendors and what he calls "the Wal·Marting of America." Lingle said he started in the book busi­ness more than 30 years ago. He was mar· ried then and was primarily interested in hanl to-find books. "Originally, I was doing business as an oul·ofprint book dealer," he said. In 1973. Lingle got a divorce from his wife and c.1me out of the closet. His inter· est in books changed to the then limited genre of gay and lesbian literature. "I cndl~l up in Oak Lawn in Dallas, and there was absolutely nothing there back then," he said. "In 1973.1 opened a book store there There wasn't much available then ." Lingle was able to fulfill a need that very few hook dealers could fill Eventually, he said, he purchased the Oscar Wilde Bookshop in New York City. In 1986, he opened Lobo in Houston's Montrose neighborhood. Lingle and his partner, Bill White. oper· ated the bookstore empire together White riled in 1995. and Lingle said, he found it chfficult to continue alone lie sold the Dallas store in 1990 and had planned to close the NC>w York store aftC>r the attacks on the World Trade Center "September 11. 2001 was really the death knell for the New York store," he S<lld. "Greenwich Village was closed for two weeks, and it never recovered " The New York Times ran a story inrli eating that Lingle planned to close thl• store, and suddenly he found himself beini.: interviewed by reporters from all over the world. A buyer came forward after thl' publici· ty. and Lingle said he sold the store at a loss. "I was down to this one store, basicall);" he said. Although he maintains, kThe comm uni· ty didn't support it as much as they used to," Lingle said he doesn't blame his cus tomers. If he blames anything at all, It is the way business Is conducted today. The biggest problem, Lingle said, 1s the fact that the vendors who supplied hb books and videos also sold over the Internet at cut-rate prices. Ami, he said, it was difficult to compete with the big guys like Barnes and :-;oble and Borders. "We had to sell at full price," he said. ''.Anything we sold you could find online at buyga):com ·· To remain competitive. Lingle said, he added a care that 5erved a high quality lunch. Although the caft' business was good, he said, the bookstore busmr's con· tlnued to dwmdlc. "When Crossroads Market clo. ed two years ago, the only bump we felt was an increase in our caf!' business," he said. He realized that cus· tomers were coming to the store, spending a few dol· lars in the care and finding the books they would later Lobo Bookshop & Cafe at 3939 Montrose Blvd. closed last week. order on line. (Photo by Dalton DeHart) "They could look at it, touch it. feel it and go to the computer and order it on line," he said There came a point at which he had to make a tough decision. His rent contmued to increase, and sales were not coming close to covering the overhead. "The payroll was $5,000 a week," he said. "I was working to keep the store open for my customers and my employees, but I was losing money." His one consolation is that when he closed the last of his stores, the political climate for gays and lesbians has changed significantly for the better. "Thirty years ago, people were st!ll wor· ried about getting busted in a raid on a gay bar," he said. "Five years ago, nobody believed that gay marriage would be such a prominent issue. Ten years ago, we didn't dream of gay and lesbian couples ha\ 1ng ch1ldrm." Lingle can name the gay and lesbian bookstores nation\\ Ide that are hanging on by a thread. He regreb that many of the& will eventually go the way of Lobo. "I can't complain, he said. ''I had some loyal customers. There just weren't enough of them." ft MORE INFO Crime Stoppers 713-222-TIPS Sister: 'Convinced' Allyn murder was a professional hit All YN. continued from Page l Houston gay community, police have calkcl on gays anrl lesbians in the city to help solve the crime. The Feb. 5 press conference was followed by the passing out of flyers in the Montrose area that evening announcing that u reward of up to $10.000 was being o!Teml to the per· son whose tip leads to the arrest and indict· nwnt of a suspect in the case After the press conference faikd to gen· erate any phone calls, .\tiller said, ''I'm one hundred percent convinced it was pro· fcssionallv done." Durmg the three months since her broth· er's death, Miller said she has passed along tips that she felt pointed in the clin><.1ion of a politically motivated, professional hit. Among the pieces of information .\liller has given to police isa tape of a tele· phom• m!'ssage left by Allyn around 9::10 p.m. on the evening before he clird. Th!' message was to a friend and busi· ncss acquaintance. and it sremcd to rl'nter on u business deal that involved the two of them uncl other persons. In the tape, Allyn said more than once. "We're going to do this by the h<K>k." He also mentioned that he hoped everyone com·rrned could still be friends once the deal was completed. Allyn said in the message that he felt hr was being watched and that it was not unusual to come home and find that someone had been going through his 1iapcrwork. Before hanging up, he warned his friend. "Watch your back. hudd}:" .\tiller said she acquired the tape from a friend of her brother, and she passed it along to police investigators.

Also . .\filler said. neighbors on Allyn's street mentioned hearing noises around ·I a.m on the morning of No\'. 21 She said the neighbors went outside to investigate and reported seeing a green pick up truck in the street a short distance awa}: Miller said the neighbors watched as Allyn's home suddenly burst mto flames, and the truck drove awa}: She said 1t was as though the driver of the truck was waiting to make certain the house erupted in flames. Miller said she doesn't have all the details regarding the deals that invoked her brother, but she said one specific ca e would have meant close to a million dollars in fees for Allyn. "It had something to do \\Uh low­income loans, refinancing lo\\·income pro­jecb," she said. But. he was imolved m several projects, Miller said. In a recent deal, Allyn lobbied for and won a l~year, 178-milhon retail contract for Paradies IAH LLC at Bush Intercontinental Airport. In 1997, Allyn, a former aide to City Council member Ben Reyes, was snared in an FBI bribery sting that later sent ReyC>s and Hous1on Port Comm1 ·stoner Betti .\Ialdonado to prison. A judge later threw out charges against Allyn Miller said she feel" there IS bound to be something m her brother's h1Story or m hb recent business dealing that could have pro\•ided motivation for someone to want to bring about his death. "How about starting with a short lbt of people who would profit from Ross Allyn's death," she said.

The New York State Department of Labor agreed last week to change policie> that will recognize same­sex relationships in determining eligibil· ity for unemployment insurance. The decision came in response to a case brought by the American Civil Liberties Union, representing a lesbian who was denied unemployment benefits because she left her job to be with her same-sex partner. "We are very pleased that the Department of Labor has recognized that same-sex couples in committed relation· ships should not be discriminated against in unemployment insurance sim· ply because they are not allowed to marry their partners," said James Esseks, litigation director for the ACLU's Lesbian & Gay Rights Project. HRC study indicates gays eager to vote in 2004 WASHINGTON D.C. - A Harris Interactive poll done on behalf of the Human Rights Campaign Foundation suggests that gay Americans consider gay rights one of the top issues for the 2004 prc>idential campaign and 76 per­cent say they are "absolutely certain" to vote in 2004. ''This research confirms that gay, lesbian. bisexual and transgen· der Americans are highly engaged in the political process," HRC President Cheryl Jacques said in a statement. HRC officials expressed surprise at some of the poll's findings. For example, more than half of those polled said they believe civil unions arc the same as marriage and 21 percent believe gay couples can get married in the United States. "This is emphatically not true, and is troubling information," HRC's education director Kim I. :\l1lb said. "We need to do a better job of getting the word out that only marriage not civil unions or legal documents can confer more than 1,000 federal benefits, such as Social Security survivor bene· fits, equitable Inheritance taxes, the right to roll over your partner's 40l(k) and so much more." Tenn. appeals court agrees to reconsider gay father ruling NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) A state appeals court has agreed to reconsider a lowl'r court order barring a gay father from "expo>ing" his son to "his gay lifestyle." The Court of Appeals granted the American Civil Liberties Union's petition for a partial rehearing of the ca<;e of Joseph Randolph Hogue. "We are very pleased that the appeals court has agl'l'(.'<l to reconsider its decision." said Hedy Weinberg, executive din.'C!or of the ACLU of Tennes.<;l>e. "Courts have no business putting gay parents in the position of having to choose between raL~ing their children and having a loving, committed relationship with their partners." The case began when Cher Lynn Hogue filed for divorce in February :.mz. As part of a divorce hearing, the lower court issued a tern· porary restmining order that forbade Hogue ~from taking the child around or otherwise exposing the child to his gay lover(s) ancl/or his gay lifestyle." Later that year, Cher Lynn Hogue filed a complaint that her husband had violated the restmining order by telling his son that he is gay.

Second!): the party has to show they are hkely to win and third!}: would there be harm to others? All three must be met." Mayor Newsom, who ordered the city to begin issuing the licenses. said the city would continue marrying gay couples until a court order stops them. He added that when a court order prevents future licenses from being issued. the city would pursue a constitutional challenge through the courts. Newsom and gay marriage proponent' say the marriage licenses are legal because of the California Constitution's equal protection clau.c;c prohibiting discrimination. as well as state !'l'COgnition of gays as a protected clas.,. Mayor may have violated state law But opponents say the move violates a successful voter-approved state initiative in 2000 declaring that California only recog­nizes marriages between one man and one woman and noted that state Jaw supercedes city law when it comes to marriage. They also say that Newsom violated criminal law as well, citing the California Penal Code in which section 115 "prohibits the knowing procurement of any false or forged instru­ment to be filed or recorded in any public office. making such an act a felony punish· able by up to three yean; in prison." Pizer said what will be determined in the cases is whether or not Newsom has the authority to "read the Constitution and make a determination that there's a statute in violation of the Constitution ." "It's a little too early to predict how both cases will address that issue," Pizer said. "Thr question docs shift to what the [California! Constitution requires. That would then effect questions of whether this was an abuse of the executive power or not or a trivial abuse or a serious abuse. •urhe right wing Is claiming that this is anarchy and makmg quite inflated assertions. Civilization in California is percolating Just fine. What has happened is that Mayor ~ewsom has pomted out that the boogie mon­ster has no clothes. The assertion that ~iety will trnnble into disarray IS obviou.~ly hollow." Brian Fahling, a senior trial attorney and policy analyst for the American Family Association Center for Law & Policy said Mayor Newsom is "actively undertaking to violate the Jaw in a pretty profound wa}:" "Because of the Jaws that exist in Cal iforma, you have an effort to call some­thing marriage when it is in fact not," Fahling said. "I think we can safely con­clude that they are attempting to further a political agenda through this defiance." Act of civil disobedience? Some gay activists have asserted that Newsom is engaging in civil disobedience, much like African-Americans did in the 1960s at the height of the civil rights movemi:nt. Rev. Jesse L. Jackson, a civil rights lead­er. said while he supports "equal protec­tion under the law" for gay couples, he con­demned equating the gay marriage cause with the civil rights movement. MThe comparison with slavery is a stretch in that some slave masters were ga~; in that gays were never called three-fifths human in the Constitution ... and in that they did not require the Voting Rights Act to have the rights to vote," Jackson said. "What is the same is that we all as citizens have the right to choose our partners." He stopped short of endorsing gay marriage . Fahling said the situation in San Francisco was not similar to the civil rights movement beca:ise a city oft1c1al was breaking the Jaw. ''A civil magistrate can never engage in civil disobedience." Fahlmg said. "He'_ a man under authority. To the degree he finds himself unable to operate under the pre ent regime, he ,;hould resign and work to create change as a citizen. But It 1s a huge problem when you have people charged with upholding the Jaw being charged with violating it." Fahling said that .'.\'ew,om was no bet· ter than another public official openly defying law, former Alabama Supreme Court ,Judge Roy !lfoore who blatantly defied state Jaw; ignored a federal order and plac£>d a monument to the Ten Commanrlm,•nts in the lobby of the Alabama Supreme Court. :'.loore was stripped of h s chief jll!'tice position for defying a federal judge's order to remove the Ten Commandments monument. "There's the di,integration of law m this country and the most recent P\idPnN> of this fact IS Judge Roy Moore." r· 'Jg said. ''\\'hi!~ I felt that the Alaba.-: St.:ir·•me Court was wrong, he had no o. · r "'" or business defying that federal court order." John Aravosis, the co·chair of DontAmend.com, a grassroots lobbymg effort dedicated to defeating a federal mar­riage amendment. said the comparison between Newsom and Roy Moore was wrong and that civil disobedience is appro­priate in civil rights struggles. MAnd sometimes it is appropriate to be a good German," Aravosis said mockingl;: "P~ple have a right to stand up in a non· violent wa;: lf the right wing wants to talk about fairness. they have to explain Judge ~1oore. They didn't seem to have a problem when he took the law into his own hands and placed that Trn Commandments monument in the (Alabama! Supreme Court." @ MOREINFO American Family Association PO.

Hazstm Vorre Issue 1217 The power of the 'f word' Japanese pitcher's gay porn past makes him the latest target of homophobia in sports, where athletes are petrified of being called a 'faggot' By CYD ZEIGLER. JR. HEN KAZUHITO TADANO, A mmor league pitcher with the Cleveland Indian~. held a press conference several weeks ago to apologize for participating in a gay adult video, the hopes of gay sports fans skyrocketed. Finally, there would be an openly gay athlete in the Majors and a porno star to boot Tadano said in the press conference that he and other teammates participated in the video when they were financially struggling students at Rikkyo University. This was not news to the sports world. Tadano was one of the highest· rated college pitchers in Japan in 2002, and was expected to be a high draft pick in the Japanese professional base­ball league. When word spread that year of Tadano's appearance in the video, the commissioner of the league told every team not to draft him. They complied. It's no shocker that Tadano. in his press conference, pulled a Mike Piazza right off the bat: "I'm not gay," the 23· year-old pitcher said. "I'd like to clear that fact up right now." For gay sports fans, the story became a non-story Tadano would be no gay Jaclne Robinson. The door for gay athletes in pro sports would still be closed. We would continue to lack any gay role models in the four major professional team sports. THE FACT THAT TADANO IS JAPANr;st; also contributed to the quick disappear­ance of the story. If it had been Andy Pettit or some other hunky, in-shape Anglo pitcher, Web sites would have col­lapsed from the flood of traffic trying to download or order the video. What is telling about Tadano's story was buried in the last line of most of the press reports. When asked whether the name calling from rowdy fans would bother him, Tadano joking­ly replied (through an interpreter), ''I don't understand English, so it doesn't really matter." The implication was that it would matter if he did understand English. If he did understand what the drunken fans along the first·base line in Shea Stadium were screaming, it just might get to him. This is one of the main reasons ath· letes give us when we ask why no one has come out. They say they'll get harassed by teammates and fans to the point that it will seriously interfere with their play. It would simply be too painful to be called a faggot, a homo or queer and take to the field. ""lien a Page Six item in the New York Post two years ago alluded to the possibility that New York Mets catcher ~like Pia1.za was gay, despite having not been named specifically, Piazza felt the need for an immediate press conference to proclaim his heterose..xuality. The last thing he'd want to hear from fans and other players is the "f·word." Yet. athletes and coaches pull no punches when they tease and harass other people. Because the f·word is the lowest form of degradation. coaches use it to motivate players ("You're running like a faggot"), players use it to motivate one another ("Don't throw like a fag· got"), and now men in the front office arc using it to attack former players. Former Atlanta Braves pitcher John Rocker complained about riding the New York subway next to "queers" with AIDS. Tennis pro Goran Ivanisevic said that an opponent looked like "a faggot." Pro football player GarrLo;on Hearst said he didn't want any "faggots" on his team. New York Giant Jeremy Shockey called former New York Giants coach Bill Parcells the worst word he could come up with: "homo." And an execu· live with the Detroit Lions called a player who used to play on his team a "faggot." Despite their fears that someone may call them the same thing. athletes at every level throw these hateful epithets around with reckless abandon. HOUSTON VOICE FEBRUARY 20. 2004 PAGE 10 Every team m the Japanese league passed over ptlcher KazLhto Tadim when they d1sc0Yel'l'd he had per· formed m a gay porn video, but the Cleveland Indians were willing to sign hun. Still, at a press conference last month. Tadlno's first IWrds were denying he was g.iy. SO LET'S GIVE THE CLEVELAND Indians two cheers for doing what no team in the Japanese pro baseball league would do: associate themselves with 'l'adano. That is not a small feat. In sports, it's guilt by as,<;OCiation. Openly gay high school track coach Eric "Gumby" Anderson has talked about how his team in Southern California became, to oppo. nents. "the gay team" when he came out. Athletes continue to give power to the one thing they fear more than striking out in Game 7 of the World Series or dropping a touchdown pass in the Super Bowl: someone calling him the f·word. Tadano may not know English; but, whether he's gay or not, he's going to become painfully acquainted this sea· son with words like homo, queer, sissy and the f-word. Forget about opposing fans. That's just what his teammates will call him. e Cyd ~is associ· ~ ate editor of the New Yori< Blade. a paper affil~1ted with this ptlilica­tion; he can be ~ at ~ HOUSTON VOICE www.houstonvoice.com 1• n CHERYL JACQUES In the fight to gain full equality for our relationships, our worst enemy is our own apathy and willingness to settle. Don't accept civil unions SINCE I STAHTED AT THE HL'J'\IAN Hights Campaib'll, I have had thl• op1xirtuni· ty to talk with ga}: lesbian, bisexual and transgendcr people nationwide about the path to equality. Foremost in the minrls of many I have been honored to ml>et is th is question: \\'hy is marriage so important? If you're wondering this, you're not alone According to a Harris Interactive poll we recently commissioned, half of all GI .BT adults think civil unions are the same as maiTiage. Unfortunate);: that's just not trne. Simply put, civil unions du not provide any of the more than 1,000 protections or securities afforded under federal law thmugh a marriage license They are rrc· ognized tlXlay in only one state Vermont and provide only the state benefits of marriage If two men in a civil union travel across state lines. they carry with them none of the rights or protec­tions that they have in Vermont. These critical distinctions boil down to unfairness. With every paycheck. GI.BT employees pay into the Social Security sys· tern, allowing spouses and children to aCl'CSS Social Security survivor benefits when a loved one passes away. These benefits can easily total more than $1.800 a month. But couples in a civil union have no access to these benefits. Even if you have no desire to marl'); you're still paying mto a system that discriminates against same· sex couples. Couples in a civil union have no access to the federal laws like the Family & :\lcclical Leave Act, to equal lmmigra· tion rights. to continued health care cov crage. Under frderal law, same- ex cou· pies are strangers. SO:\IE ALSO FEEL THAT CIVIL l'~IO~S are a neressary compromise, giwn ihe pu!J. lic's struggle with marriage. But civil wiions are not ihe solution. Even if civil wiions pro­vided 1111 the same legal pmtections of mar· riage which they don't they would still be a separate and wiequal system. Ten years ago, many said that domestic partnerships were unrealistic. Five years ago. civil unions were cutting-edge We are at a moment in history where marriage ts a realit}: We must not cede that right just because pcopk are uncomfortable Sure, there are many of us who may not be ready to settle down now. Howewr. our poll reflects that 78 percent of gay people want to be able to marry: Speaking of the government, President Bush is prepared to enshrine this unequal treatment in our nation's Constitution by su pporting the Federal Marriage Amendment drafted by Colorado Congresswoman l\larilyn :\lusgrave This would not only forever ban any state from allowing same·sex couples to marry but could strike at the heart of a statc»s abili ty to provide evc.:i limited legal protcc· 11ons or c1v1l unions to same-sex couple . The press has reported that Bu,h plans to announce this as a way to "to start the general election campaign on a fresh issue." Make no mistake'. Pre;;idrnt Bu~h is trying to win this election on our backs. He is playing politics with our hve' and our families. It's intolerable. it's shameful and it's an ugly way to run a campaign. IT'S Tl:\IE FOR VS TO SPEAK UP THAT same Harris poll showed that the majorlly of us don't talk to family. friends and col· leagues about the impact of discrimina· lion on our hves. We are deprMng the people who love us most of the opportunl· ty to fight for us, to vote for us and to end the discrimination against us.

Veep's lesbian daughter targeted by Web site By CHRISTOPHER SEELY THE l\IASTERl\llNDS BEHIND THE Stop Dr. Laura campaign are at it agam, \\ ai,'lllg a full-scale attack on Vice President Dick Cheney's lesbian daughter. who they say has been conspicuously sile~t about ht>r father's stance on gay marrIBge. Gay acttv1sts John Aravosis and Robin Tyler launched the Web site Dear Mary.com on Feb. 13. They want .to convince Mary Cheney to stand up to her father and publicly oppose the amendment. Aravosis said. "She has been put in a unique place to make more difference than all of us can make combined," Aravosis said. "With power comes responsibility." Cheney in the past worked as a paid gay liaison for Coors Brewing Company and served on the board of the Republican Unity Coalition, a gay right;; group, Aravosis said. But Cheney, 34, resigned from RUC last year. She is now director of vice presidential operations fo~ the ~ush· Cheney re-election campaign, with an annual salary nearing $75,000 after taxes, according to the Washington Post. Mary Cheney should speak out not only because of her personal family life but also because of her professional role, Aravosis said. "This is not some wallflower lesbian making cookies for her woman at home," Aravosis said. Officials at the Bush-Cheney re-elec· tion campaign did not respond to inter· view requests. DURING HER TENURE AS PROFES· s1onal gay advocate, Cheney urged the Republican Party not to focus on gay issues. "We can make sexual orientation a non-issue for the Republican Party. and we can help achieve equality for all gay and lesbian Americans," Mary Cheney said in an April 2002 statement, accord· ing to News\\-eek. But now some conservative Republicans are actively supporting state and federal initiatives to ban gay marriage, and Cheney's father, the vice president, has said he will follow President Bush's lead on the issue. Dick Cheney said in 2000 that gay marriage should be decided by states, but recently said he will support Bush if the president backs a constitutional amendment banning legal recognition of gay couples, according to the Associated Press. The gay L.og Cabin Republicans said last week that a Bush administration The lesbian daughter of Vice President Dick Cheney has remained sUent about her father's support for a constitutional ban on gay marriage, prompting gay act1v1sts to ask, 'Have you seen Mary Cheney?' (Photo courtesy of DearMary.com) source told the group the president plans to publicly support the amend· ment, although he hasn't yet. Mary Cheney. who is in a long-term relationship, has made no public com· ment on her father's position on the federal amendment. Gay writer Michelangelo Signorile took Cheney to task in a column titled "Dear Mary" published in the Jan. 20 New York Press. Signorile's column inspired DearMary.com, Aravosis said. Signorile, who has visited the site, called it "a good tool to educate people" and reiterated his belief that Mary Cheney needs to speak up now to be viewed favorably by history: "Mary Cheney should publicly say that she disagrees with the president and with her father." Signorile said. ':And I believe she cannot work for a campaign that would support a federal marriage amendment. And if they do support it, I believe she should step down." In its first five days, the Web site posted more than 2,150 letters to Mary Cheney and received an average of 50,000 hits per day, Aravosis said. Some 90 percent of the letters have a compassionate tone, he said. But one gay couple that waited in hne in San Francisco for a marriage license shamed Mary in their letter on the site, saying that her silence made her worse than her father, who publicly supports a gay marriage ban. "If you do not speak now. Mary. you will rightfully be remembered only as part of the biggest disgrace against what being American is all about - the belief that everyone is equal," wrote Mikko and Ari from West Hollywood, Cahf. "We hope you do the right thing. We wait for your answer." ~=~!INFO ~~~~~- -~~- ABOUT ACTION ALERT: Action Alert is a Forum section feature that informs readers of issues for response and lobbying.

HOUSTON VOICE GAY HOUSTON NIGHTLIFE, ARTS & CULTURE FEBRUARY 20, 2004 PAGE 15 Page 16 ~~~~~~~~~~~~ Finding strengJh • Gay filmmaker Arthur Dong releases documentary trilogy 'Stories from the War on Homosexuality' on DVD By MATTHEW FORKE LISTENING TO THE HEARTBREAKING STRUGGLES of gay generations past and present has a funny way of putting our daily inconveniences into proper perspec· tive, which is one of the many meaningful "take-aways" viewers should appreciate in documentary filmmaker Arthur Dong's new DVD box set, "Stories from the War on Homosexuality." An Oscar nominee for his 1983 documentary short-sub­ject film "Sewing Women." Dong's substantive three-part trilogy explores the unyielding culture of discrimination against gay men and lesbians by conservative religious groups, hate-<:rime perpetrators and the U.S. militaI]: The first film in the trilogy, ·coming Out Under Fire." (based on Allen Berube's book) was filmed in 1994, not long after the infamous "Don't Ask. Don't Tell" debate of the early '90s. Through a montage of rare pho· tographs and documents, government newsreel footage and contemporary interviews with gay veterans, the film traces the history of gays in the military as far back as World War II, complete with government screens for "sex perverts." gay newsletters written in "code" and homosexual "witch hunts" conducted by superiors. Far more harrowing. though, is Dong's second entry. 199Ts "Licensed to Kill." which comprises a . eries of interviews with incarcerated killers, many of whom are on death row or serving life sentences. Dong, himself a victim of a gay bashing in the late '70s, turns his lens and microphone to some seriously sick (and vastly uneducated) individuals and asks the question, "Why?" In return, everything from religious upbringing to AIDS to self· hatred - one ~onvic~. Jay . Johnson, is gay himself - is used to justify their horrif· ic crimes. Riveting stuff, though the postmortem photographs of the victims are not for the faint-of-heart. 1n pain Dong completes the trilogy with 2002's "Family Fundamentals," a remarkably bal· anced and sensitive look at three conservative Christian families who happen to have gay children. Brett Mathews is the son of a Mormon bish· op. Brian Bennett is the former campaign man· ager and chief of staff for U.S. Rep. Robert Dornan, a conservative Republican from California who lost his seat to a Democrat sever­al years ago. And finally, Susan and David Jester are the estranged gay daughter and grandson of Kathleen Bremner, a Pentecostal church leader in San Diego. The DVD box includes some well-selected bonus features, including introductory inter· views by Dong himself; featurettes: deleted and extended scenes: unreleased interviews (brace yourself for those in "Licensed to Kill"); liner Filmmaker Arthur Dong 1s unafraid to speak in glowmg and cnttcal terms about the gay civil rights movement. In a recent interview, he says: Tm not just happy with 'Will & Grace' and 'Queer Eye for the Straight Guy.' That's fine. but it's not good enough.' notes, essays and illustrated booklets; music selections and trailers. among others. Dong recently discussed the DVD release of the trilo· gy with Houston Voice. Houston Voice: What filmmakers inspire you and your work? Arthur Dong: You would think someone had asked me that. Hmm. I've been asked what filmmakers I admire. Stanley Kubrick is one of my all-time favorites. Ho Vo: What are some of the goals you've set for yourself as a filmmaker? Dong: At this point, I'd say it's not to be making the kinds of films I've been making. I'd rather be making "Terminator 4." Did l really think 15 years ago that I'd be making this trilogy? No. I'd rather not have to do this. But I have to. Eventuall;; I'd like to be making more "fun" films. HoVo: In •Family Fundamentals" you said you were interested in documenting conservative Christian fami· lies with gay children that fell into three categories: a family headed by a political leader, a family that had dealt with reparative therapy and a family headed by a church leader in a rural comm unit): How did you decide on these three criteria' Dong: I came up with those criteria after re~earch· ing about 30 stories where various a~pects or structures were apparent. I wanted them to be diver~e. Ho Vo: How did you find the interview subjects who participated? Dong: l found Brett after a screening of "Coming Out Under Fire." You know, he"s a vet. And I knew of Brian's story. Rich Tafel, the former executive director of Log Cabin Republicans, introduced me to him And Kathlecn·s stol): I was referred to her from another ex· gay minlstry up North. I was thinking about doing a dif· ferent family's story and it didn°t quite work, but they said they [knew) of another family [I] might want to thlnk about. Ho Vo: You said in "Family Fundamentals" that each of the three families' stories served as "microcosms" of the larger social and political struggles being fought in the public sphere. What direction do you feel the coun· try is currently headed. both politically and socially?

The'Eyes'haveit FROM A BUSINESS PERSPECTIVE, THE "Queer ~;ye for the Straight Guy" soundtrack is easy money. ,Just follow a few easy steps: Take a hit show that most everyone loves. slap a pie· ture of the live leading men on the cover, add an extended version of the theme song to start off the album. and ftll up the rest of the running time with tracks that are (for the most part) unrelated to the series, but might appeal to a general audience. Shake gently, and voila! People will buy this CD, released Feb. 10, because they like the show. and the bands that contribute tracks get some exposure. Everyone goes home a winner. (A book - "Queer Eye for the Straight Guy: The Fab S's Guide to Looking Better, Cooking Better, Dressing Better, Behaving Better, and Living Better" - also was released on Feb. 10.) But when consumers bring this music home and l)e('I off the cellophane, they might realize that this is a CD by a bunch of artists they don't actually know much about. So. aside from being a profitable ven· ture, the real question is, does this record have any substance? The surprising answer is that a good portion of the "Queer Eye" audience will likely be enchanted by the tracks that the producers have selected. For the most part, the songs are big on beats and inspire people to move to the dance floor. The CD offers unit-shifting, bouncy anthems from Duran Duran, Prophet Omega and Basement Jaxx that are cus· tom made for a club environment. Although it's almost always dance-orient· ed, the mood shifts from light and peppy to intense and dark as the album goes on. WILDLIFE STARTS THINGS OFF WITH a full version of the show's theme song, "All Things (Just Keep Getting Better)." As with all TV themes that end up getting played on the radio (think "I'll Be There For You" from "Friends"), the full version of the song is familiar, catchy and utterly forgettable since you're already sick of it before you hear the whole thing. Aside from the "All Things," careful lis· teners may recognize some of the songs from the TV show OK GO's "You're So Damn Hot" appeared in the episode where straight guy Richard (the one with the toupee) was preparing for h!S new look sans hairpiece. For the most part, though, the tracks seem to come out of nowhere and if they have been featured on the show, you aren't likely to recognize them.

Jai R~ Ccr'son Kressley, llnn Ficia and Ky.vi Douglas (Photo courtesy of Bravo) out of place on "Never Coming Home." Backed by a tame bass and handclap beat, he half.raps, half-warbles his way through an aimless track that never takes off. The iconic Kylie Minogue makes an appearance with a Chemical Brothers remix of her track "Slow." The song is full of electronic bleeps and, thankfully, devoid of a throbbing beat, but it isn't the best techno track on the CD. The collaboration between Fischerspooner and Billy Squier on "Everybody Wants You to Emerge" is more interesting. It's a techno song with dark melodies and eerie female vocals. "You're So Damn Hot," along with Junior Senior's "Move Your Feet," are the two best tracks on the collection. OK GO's track is its most rocking a power pop anthem driven by keyboards and gui· tars. The band comes off as Weezer gone new wave and, while it stands out as atyp­ical among Its dance club-oriented com· pany, its melody and carefree attitude make it lit with the "Queer Eye" vibe. The mood on the "Queer ~ye" sound· track is different than that of the show, a weekly hour of energy and fun. Despite having a few embedded sound clips from the show and an unlisted track of Jai and Ted freestyling, this is a solid collection of dance-rock tracks that deserves to be judged on its own merits. @MORE INFO Music from 'Queer Eye for the Straight Guy' Various Artists Capitol Records www queereyemusic com HOUSTON VOICE www.houstonvoice.com BRIAN MOYLAN Richard Hatch, the gay man America loves to hate, is back plotting his next victory and strutting around in the nude. I'm down with Hatch WHEN I CHOW UP. J WANT TO m: .JUST like Hichard Hatch. It may c;ccm odd to have a reality sho\\ "celebrity" as a role model, but Hatch, who won thr $1 million prize during the ongi nal season of CBS's "Survivor" in the sum· mer of 2000. l.~ nbsolutcly unforgettable. He's neither as saintly as the late AllJS activist Pedro Zamora from "Heal World: San Francisco" nor as athletic and attrac· live as Chip Arndt and Reichen Lehmkuhl, the gay couple who won the last season of "The Amazing Race." Hatch. at least on Survivor. is manipu· latlvc, lazy, abrasive, and arrogant someone America loves to hate. All that said. this is the reason he deserves our admiration and respect. He took home $1 million without compromis· ing who he is or worrying about what anyone would think of him after the game was over. Hatch, 42, is back on "Survivor; All· Stars," the show's eighth season. com· prised of past winners and contestants from previous episodes, and he's better than ever. Just by showing up, he has somehow managed to earn the respc-ct of the other survivors. AND WHY SHOULDN'T HE? HATCH devised the "alliance strategy" that led him to victory and that others have used in every season of the show and on every other competitive reality show after •·survivor.·· Contestants even refer to him as "Richard Hatch" rather than just "Richard," as if he isn't a regular person or an average contestant but some sort of mythological figure to whom they must pledge devotion. The camera crews are also devoted to Richard Hatch. Other than fan favorite Rupert Boneham from "Survivor; Panama," no one else has garnered as much screen time as Hatch. In the episode that aired last Thursday, Feb. 12, he deserved the attention. While trying to spear a shark for food. Hatch got bitten. In retaliation, he actually bit the shark back, killed it, and returned to camp with some much·needrd grub. When talking about his victory and his tribe mates' reactions. he said, "It brought a smile to everyone's face. Too bad they're all going to be gone soon." ft MORE INFO 'Sllvivor' CBS Thursd.lys al 9 p.m. Original $1 million ·survivor' winner and current ·survivor; All-Stars' contestant Richard Hatch 1s an offbeat. naked. gay iconoclast (Photo courtesy of CBS) The shark incident seems to be part of Hatch's new strategy, which he claims to have had since the first episode, though no one is sure what it is. So far, it seems to consist of being a little bit crazy, lying around camp, and keeping the technician who makes the digital blurriness around his crotch area employed by walking around naked all the time. HATCH IS DEFINITELY KEEPING ALL the other contestants off kilter by setting himself apart from them, and one of the ways he does this is by being openly ga): Not that he shoves it in anyone's face, but they all know of his "difference" and he isn't doing anything to make himself more "normal." Hatch never feels like he's at a disad· vantage because he's a gay man on a straight man's island, and he seems to delight in the fact that he isn"t like every· one else. He even uses it to his advantage. It comes off more like hubris than gay pride, however. The dreamy Colby Donaldson from "Survivor: Outback," who is a member of Hatch's tribe, said on a past episode. "I don't know what's creepier. the fact that we have a middle-aged, overweight, gay man walking around naked. or the fact that we ·ve all gotten used to it. .. Hatch harkens back to the days of ACT· Ul~ where gay activism was creative, clever and outrageous. Toda); under the Human Rights Campaign strategy, gay people seemingly arc supposed to blend in and show America how we're just like everyone else. Hatch, of course, is having none of this. He's here. he's queer and he's naked, and the other Survivors better get used to it because, as we all know by now, he Is not afraid to bite back.

How @MORE INFO To order Stories from the Wi11 on Homosexuality', access www.deepfocusproductionscom did that experience affect your perspec· tivc as 11 gay man and ns a filmmaker? Dong: I have to think back 111 that time in 1977, when anti-gay violence was not on the front burner of the issues we were all working on, like it is today. I just started collecting data and research out of my own self·interest, and first the question was. "Why did this happen to me?" which eventually evolved into the question of, "Why did this happen at all'" And I started to realize that what hap· pence! to me was not isolated - it hnp­pcncd a lot more thnn what was reported at that time. I didn't want to approach the film from an emotional point of view, so I put on my journalist's hat so that I would· n't be wrapped up in feelings about being a victim. I also wanted to mnke films that were accessible to a non-gay audience. I think I would have approached things dif ft>rently if I thought my only audience was gay people.

An Aries wants to take you out in style. Splurge, Aquarius! fy) Aries (March 21 to April 20): The moon in your sign on Feb. 23 and 24 brings you some great opportuni· ties to impress people who have been impervious to your charm. A Libra is especially enamored with you this week. Renew relationships. Don't hold a grudge. V Taurus (April 21 to May 20): U This is a great week for you to dig in your (high) heels· as only you can. and dedicate your time and energy to a project that will surely pay off in the long run. You have the ability to make money doing something you love, so start now. A Cancer would love to do you for free! JI Gemini (May 21 to June 21): The Sun, Mercury, and Uranus at the top of your chart make this a great week for wheeling and dealing. Don't take "no" for an answer from business associates. You are able to get what you want with a handshake and a smile. A Capricorn needs more than that, though. § Cancer (June 22 to July 22): Could you put your self-loathing aside for one week, dear Cancer? Saturn retrograde makes a lovely aspect to the Sun. which means that you should try to see the beauty in hf e's inconvenient but miraculous accidents. A Gemini docs not understand you at all but still loves you! Miracle or not? i) Leo (July 23 to August 22): U l Mercury, the talker, finishes up a stmt in your house of love this week. If you have something to say. especially to another Leo· now is the time to say it. And if you really don't feel like talking about love, then write a poem or send a card. A little wit and romance take you very far. nl\ Virgo (August 23 to September 11.f 22): Feeling down? The moon in your house of travel on Feb. 25 and 26 could bring you some opportunities to take off to parts unknown. A little adven· turc in an exotic land could be just what the doctor ordered. A Gemini, who would love to travel with you as your nurse, looks fierce in white. .!l. Libra (September 23 to October - 22): Take care of your body, dar· ling. This is a tender time for you. so don't feel bad about indulging your whims. A trip to the spa may do the trick to lift your mood. A Scorpio wants to be more than a trick. Are you in the mood? m Scorpio (October 23 to November 11 4 21): This week's Mars·Neptune square could force you to deal with a sexy pal with no boundaries. Love turns to rage turns to affection turns to confusion in the blink of an eye. Try to be open to all possibilities. A Cancer will take care of you, however this complex union turns out. ><' SAGITIARIUS (November 22 to December 21): Just when you thought you couldn't handle any more hard· to-read characters, a surprisingly enigmatic Aries enters your life. Perhaps the lesson is to be subtler, dear heart. Let them guess what you're thinking. YL Capricorn (December 22 to 'F Januacy 19): : Do something to make your home a little more welcoming, you antisocial curmudgeon. Venus' tran­sit through your home sector should give you some ''Queer Eye" inspiration. A Sagittarius is all too ready to share a toothbrush with you. ..-YY\ Aquarius (January 20 to ..-YY\ February 18): Much action in your money sector makes this a lucrative week. Put that dough to good use. Then give yourself a little treat. You can splurge on something electronic and mildly luxurious. An Aries wants to take you out in style. j-t Pisces (February 19 to March 20): This is a hot time for you, Pisces. You have a naughty look in your eyes that you just can't hide. A Libra can see through your act. This is the week to be bad just because it feels so good. r - Jill Dearman is the author of the best· @ selling 'Qu-eer Astrology for Men' and 'Queer Astrology for Women· (both from St Martin's Gnffm) For mfonna~on on charts and consultations. call 212·841-0177 or e-m.1il QScopes@aol.com FEBRUARY 20, 2004 ANDY WEISER Put Coldwell Banker's Top Producer to work for You 954-560-9667 COU>Weu.
