Dear Friends: We are currently operating a Lesbian and Gay Hotline, lending library, food bank, speaker and educational services, counseling, clothes closet and more! We need used/new books on coining out, parenting, women■s herstory, Lesbian and Gay non-fiction, Spanish (any books), and any other information and resources available. In addition to all mentioned above, Wanda and I produce the Gulf Coast Women's Festival (April 7-11) and Spirit Fest (Sept. 2-6). Another project of Sister Spirit Incorporated will be the building of an educational and cultural retreat center. Mississippi is the poorest state in the nation and one third of Mississippi women are illiterate. We recently received a grait from Lesbian Natural Resources for $ 13,950 to help with the down payment. We are excited about the future of Southern Lesbian/ Feminists as this dream inches closer to reality. The center will be available for rent by like-minded groups for conferences, conscious raising weekends, campouts, educational programs and other gatherings. We have received a few small grants for the food bank, sound equipment, office [equipment and some crisis intervention, but we have very litle capital for books and other supplies. ALL DONATIONS ARE TAX DEDUCTIBLE!! Please send any helpful information about possible grants or funders and realtors to assist to: 1806 Curcor Drive, Gulfport, Mississippi 39507, or call (601) 896-3196. In Sister Spirit,, Brenda Henson "lite 1993 Toxps Lesbian Conference In 1988 a grassroots coalition of women In Dallas, through a vision of enhancing lesbian visibility, created the 1 st Texas Lesbian Conference. Now, in 1993, the lesbians of Texas are coming together to promote the vision of many kinds of power for all women. We are greatly inspired by the late poet Audre Lorde's essay, "Uses of the Erotic: The Erotic as- Power" in which she states, "Recognizing the power of the erotic within our lives can give us the energy to pursue genuine change within our world, rather than merely settling for a shift of characters in the same weary drama." Join us and hundreds of other lesbians at the 6th annual TLC May 21-23 at the Stouffer Presidente Hotel, Houston, to celebrate our empowerment. Many "Kinds OfToiver %§unote Speakers: Phyllis Lyon and Del Martin (Sponsored by Lesbians in Business (Li. B.) These women were the founding members of the Daughters of Bilitis in 1953. This was the first national organization of lesbians in the U.S. They published the famous newsletter The Ladder and are celebrating their 40th year together. They have co- authored the books Lesbian Woman and Battered Wife. Akasha (Gloria) Hull Akasha is a poet, author, lecturer and Professor of Women's Studies and Literature at the University of California at Santa Cruz. Her discussion will serve to illuminate our understanding of Audre Lorde from her own experience and study. Susie Bright (Underwritten by Inklings-an alternative bookshop and Crossroads Market & Bookstore) Susie is not only on the pulse of what's happening sexually, she is the rush before the pulse. She is heralded as a political leader, women's erotica founder and a provocative journalist. Susie's most recent book is Sexual Reality: Virtual Sex World Reader. Dr. Nancy Lee Josie This dynamic speaker and minister is with MCC Cathedral of Hope in Dallas. She will be sending us forth with energy and the power to claim our future. 7& 77V A Place of Rage will be shown throughout the day. In this engrossing film June Jordan, Angela Davis and Alice Walker recount their experiences in the civil rights movement. Interwoven with June Jordan's powerful poetry are issues of homophobia, racism, U.S. imperialism and liberation struggles around the world. The film is highlighted by music from Prince, Janet Jackson, The Neville Brothers and the Staple Singers. "Entertainment/(Dance:* Music by Denice Franke, Girls In the Nose and The Therapy Sisters.
