10TH ANNUAL SOUTHERN WOMEN'S MUSIC & COMEDY FESTIVAL
POSTPONED UNTIL MAY 26-30, 1994 (MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND)
Due to the enormous response to the April 25, 1993 March on Washington do oe
held one month prior to when the 10th Annual Southern Women's Music & Comedy
Festival), the Festival is being postponed until Memorial Day Weekend of May 1994.
Robin Tyler is co-producing the Main Stage Rally at the March. This is a major
production commitment which already has taken six months and will occupy most of
her time from the middle of March through the end of April.
Robin also feels that in these historic times, it is important that as many lesbians and
gays as possible attend the March on Washington. Therefore, she is postponing the
10th Annual Southern Festival until 1994.
Once again, the Festival IS NOT BEING CANCELED. It shall continue as one of the
major festivals in the South, and will celebrate its 10th Anniversary on May 26-30,
Robin would like to encourage as many people as possible to attend the March. With
the escalating rightwing attacks, the passage of Amendment 2 in Colorado, tne
setback in Tampa, the resistance to gays in the military and the upcoming
Lesbian/Gay Civil Rights Bill, it is essential that those of us who can get to
Washington, do so, as a show of power as well as pride.

IN SICKNESS & HEALTH
New York City Mayor David
Dinkins issued an executive order
creating a domestic partnership
registry and established city-wide
regulations that formally recognize
unmarried couples. This means that
couples who are in close, committed
relationships can register their relationships and have their unions
legally recognized by bodies affiliated with the city.
What the executive order doesn't
provide is health care benefits for
our domestic partners. Mayor
Dinkins has expressed his support
for Intro 277, a City Council bill
which would grant these benefits.
Urge him remove the hurdles to1
extending all benefits to domestic
partners and to move forcefully to
get the City Council to pass Intro
277. Write The Honorable Mayor
David Dinkins, Office of the
Mayor, City Hall, New York, NY
And if you and your partner
would like to participate in our
history-making mass registration
planned for March 1, please call the
GLAAD office at 212-807-1700 as
