Transcript ARE YOU TIRED OF READING NOTHING BUT BAD NEWS IN THE PAPERS? DO YOU EVER WISH WE WOULD HEAR GOOD THINGS ABOUT OTHER WOMEN INSTEAD OF CRIME? I would like to ask you to send us a few lines on the lives and stories of Women, dead or alive that have touched you in any way or that you admire. I feel that we as a community, need to talk and share about each other great actions. I have known many women who have done brave and great things and who have encouraged me to keep on living or to do something I was not sure it could be done. Write your notes to Womynspace. Keep your story short and try to have it in a 3 inches column, ready to be pasted on the newsletter. You never know who will benefit from your sharing.THANKS!!!!!!!! From Barbara "Butterfly" in Austin, the group ASA needs speakers. Her group meets on the second and fourth fridays from 7 to 9 pm. Barbara gave a wonderful exploring workshop last retreat at San Marcos and we are very happy to have her around. I am still very happy with the turn out of the last retreat. It was one of the best ones! The workshops were very helpful for me and I got to meet some real nice women. I am hoping I can have another in the fall. Please send your suggestions. Margarita Lasher is perhaps best known in Houston and nationally as Ralph Lasher, executive director of the Montrose Clinic, an AIDS education and service agency. In his spare time, the Rev. Ralph Lasher directs the pastoral care ministry at Houston's Metropolitan Community Church of the Resurrection (MCCR) and teaches classes on the Bible and homosexuality. Variations of his "coming out" story have been heard too often from gay men and women] who tried to fit into mainstream churches. A respected Episcopal rector, Lasher was kicked out of the church 35 years ago when he told his bishop he was gay. The Observer, which nurtured the early career of columnist Molly Ivins, will be available at Houston gay & lesbian bookstores—Inklings, Lobo and Crossroads—, well as Brazos Bookstore. The issue was the brainchild of political activist/LIB member Pat Gandy, who First approached the Observer with the idea. LIB member Cicely Wynne helped Pat coordinate the issue and handled publicity.

Ride Coordinator 1(713) 532-1856 Texas Observer devotes April 2 issue to Texas lesbians and gays The Rev. Ralph Lasher hopes his article, "In God's name — Gays, Lesbians and the Bible," in the highly respected Texas Observer will finally ignite a national debate about the destructive myth that God and the Bible hate lesbians and gay men. "The homophobic Bible myth is the main reason many straight Americans despise us," Lasher said. "Only if we dare to discuss this 'sacred' cow in the national media can we make straight people aware that newer, more accurate Bible translations and many Bible scholars agree: Infamous Bible passages do not condemn homosexuality; most don't even refer to it. The Bible, in tact, celebrates the love of David and Jonathan." Lasher's article appears in the April 2 "Gays/Lesbians in Texas" issue of the Texas Observer, the influential political magazine. The issue features articles from around the state, including such Houston leaders as openly gay Houston Post columnist Juan Palomo; political activist Annise Parker on our relationship with the Houston Police Department; attorneys Connie Moore and Debbie Hunt on gay and lesbian families; and attorney/activist Donald Skipwith on AIDS and activism. Several writers describe their lives on the Texas "frontier" (West Texas, A&M and small towns).
