Transcript Plains Talk Does Jimmy Carter support gay rights? He says he does. On NBC he said, "I favor the end of harassment or abuse or discrimination against homosexuals." HOWEVER, the actions of his staff at the National Democratic Convention did not exactly back up those words. Jean O'Leary, the first openly gay delegate to be elected to the convention, was extremely agitated about the way Carter's people effectively blocked even the consideration of mildly controversial pro-gay or pro-women planks in the Democratic platform. Jean said gays had gone into the platform considerations trying for a paragraph on gay rights; they pared that goal down to one sentence, then down to two words. In the end gays got not one word of mention in the platform. On the plus side, Carter has named to his 51.3% National Advisory Committee three out-front and outstanding lesbians, Jean O'Leary, Rep. Elaine Noble, and Jo Daly, gay community liaison to the San Francisco Human Rights Commission. The 51.3% Committee is charged with advising Carter on the appointment of women to Federal positions. O'Leary commented, "The appointment of three open lesbians to a campaign committee for a major presidential candidate is a history- making event." HOWEVER, in Jean's judgment, Carter made the appointments only in response to concerted lobbying efforts by lesbians. On the plus side, Jimmy Carter Presidential Campaign Headquarters sent a news release on the lesbian appointments to the 51.3% Committee to . . . yes, Our very Own Pointblank Times. It is very unusual that the staff of a major presidential candidate would take the trouble to find out about a small circulation lesbian publication such as ours. HOWEVER, Carter's people didn't take the trouble to spell Elaine Noble's name correctly. Also, the press release happened to be timed about two weeks before the election. Although he has said he feels personally uncomfortable about homosexuality, Carter apparently didn't feel too queasy about accepting votes from homosexuals. In the next four years we'll see whether his actions can be encouraged to mesh more comfortably with his words. - Pokey Anderson Definition of a lesbian, from the Lesbian Front: If all the men in the world suddenly disappeared, the lesbian is the woman who notices it last* Need Holiday Cash?
