Transcript We Know That You Know Editorial But Were Saying It Again Anyway Hello, hello! It's good to be back in your warm hands again. We missed you, and we thank all of you who expressed concern about where the hell we were. Since we last published, pbt has gotten some energetic new staff members, some new ideas, and a home (a qarage that only leaks a little bit). In this issue we are focusing on relationships, and it seems an appropriate time to think about our relationship to one another. It is important that lesbians support each other in every way possible. Everything that we have gained to date has been won through the risk, hard work, and self-sacrifice of a minority of lesbians. It is that minority group who is giving us a lesbian culture to identify with and to claim as our own. It is their energy and dedication that sustains the rest of us. But unless we give our encouragement and support in return, we are in danger of losing all we have gained. None of us should take our very young and fragile lesbian culture for granted. Being on the dark side of 30, I can remember how lonely and displaced I felt while growing up. In those days there were no lesbians producing music or writing books and poetry for me-- or none that I could find. There was nothing or no one that I could identify with. There was no Ann Lavender to write to and discuss those bewildering feelings in me that made me different from the other girls I knew. I can't adequately describe the loneliness, that sense of being completely out of touch with the world. But the remembered feeling of isolation makes me grateful for the lesbian culture that has been born within the past few years and that is growing in strength and substance with each passing month. It is a gift I don't take lightly, for I know it can vanish as quickly as it came into being. We can keep our lesbian culture and aid its growth through our support and encouragement of one another. We must value the women who are working such long and difficult hours to bring Continued on back cover We publish Pointblank Times as often as possible. Under optimum conditions that would be monthly. We exist to be a communications vehicle for lesbians and feminists, especially in Houston and in Texas. Send us your stuff, including letters, features, reviews, poetry, announcements, graphics and photographs. Please tell us how you want your name to appear, and whether you want your material returned to you.
