Transcript SEXUALITY & LESBIANISM TASK FORCE As you may already know, Texas H.B. 759» which would have repealed present laws prohibiting homosexual acts between consenting adults, failed to get out of committee this legislative session. Rep. Craig Washington, the bill's sponsor, also tried unsuccessfully to add it to an omnibus bill that was already on the House floor. He did force a recorded vote on the issue which Betty Barnes will reveal to us next month in her legislative round-up. Thanks for your letter-writing efforts on this, and thanks to Craig for his efforts. National S8lL reports a major nationwide push for Bella Abzug's gay civil rights bill, H.R. 5452. At the rate things are going, it may not take five years. Already the bill has 29 co-sponsors and an estimated 100 votes in the House. We're looking for the National Women's Agenda, a new coalition of over 120 women's groups (including the Campfire Girls) to endorse it. A Senate sponsor for a companion bill is still needed. Letters will be needed to urge House committee hearings before the end of the year. Write to Honorable Don Edwards, Chair, Judiciary Subcommittee on Constitutional and Civil Rights, Room 407, House Office Building Annex, Washington, DC 20515. Your own representative needs to be reminded (or told for the first time) that (l) gay people exist in the representative's own district, and in numbers of 10 to 20 million nationwide; (2) rights for gay people are a valid civil rights issue just as for any other minority; (3) both gay and straight people are working for gay civil rights; and (4) gay people are indeed discriminated against in jobs, housing, federally-funded programs, etc. The silence of many gay people— their fear even to complain to their representatives—gives some indication of the extent of the discrimination. Send copies of responses to your letters to Betty Barnes at the Women's Center so we can better know whom to lobby and how. The Rites of Spring camp-out on the Colorado River drew 150 lesbians and their children from eight cities in Texas. A good time was had by all with the possible exception of a pick-up truck of uninvited rednecks. A new lesbian-feminist rap group has formed. It's meeting weekly and the first topic will be role models. If you're interested let me know. We can start a second group if interest warrants. A long-needed group has been started for people who live in a double closet—gay alcoholics. If you or someone you care about would be interested in a gay Alcoholics Anonymous group, call 528-5107.
