Transcript August 1974 BROADSIDE Page 5 CHILD CARE Elena Moore and Dianna Vejtasa have volunteered to take over the Child Care Task Force. They are interested in working for quality child care for all children within the community. They are now planning for the first Child Care Task Force meeting in September. Elena and Dianna would like to see as many NOW members, whether they have children or not, at this meeting to give them as much input as possible to determine what NOW members want to see the Child Care Task Force do for children in our community. The exact date of the first meeting will be in your September BROADSIDE. Dianna Vejtasa went to one of the meetings on July 16 of the new Ad Hoc Task Force for Children, chaired by Marie Oser. This task force was formed after a luncheon at the YWCA with the American Jewish Committee and invited local feminists, in which several women attending the luncheon decided quality child care programs should be a priority goal of the City of Houston. The Task Force has decided to prepare a proposal to the mayor for the development of an Office for Children. This office would be to stimulate services rather than to deliver services. The Task Force wants this proposal to be endorsed by all interested Houston organizations, and Dianna feels NOW should be one of them. The mayor had pledged to the Harris County Women's Political Caucus to have child care as one of his priorities while in office. Let us see to it that he follows up with this pledge as he did with the promise of a Women's Advocate. Dianna will be attending most of the meetings. A questionnaire has been sent to 326 day care centers in Houston by Lea Montgomery. Lea needs volunteers to help do follow-up interview trips to all the day care centers that have responded. The results of this questionnaire will enable us to establish a day care referral service. If you wish to participate, call Dianna Vejtasa at 772-7393, Elena Moore at 721-4188, or Lea Montgomery at 644-0965. Dianna Vejtasa SEXUALITY & LESBIANISM Sometimes, after I've been around the brazenly self-confident Women's Center Breed long enough, I almost forget what the "real" world is like. Until a frightened voice on the phone jars my memory: "Are you with the Women's Center? ah...ah...Are you with a group about... ah...well...1 haven't told anybody in the whole world this, but...I think I might be a... uh...bixesual". And then it all comes out in a rush: "And I didn't have anyone to talk to about it, and I've been so worried there was something wrong with me, and you mean I'm not really sick, and are there really lots of people like that, and where can I meet them?" Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus, and we are she. We are just crazy enough to try to re-educate the world into accepting any non-victim expression of human sexuality. This month's line-up of co-conspirators includes: (l) Our counseling sub-group will be working with Barbara Brown in the new Mental Health Task Force to be able to make confident referrals to non-sexist and non-heterosexist counselors. (2) Kay Whyburn and others have expressed interest in investigating sex education in public schools. This would be virgin frontier for Houston feminists, and we're expecting it to be pregnant with sexism. Any curious fron- tierswomen out there? (3) Integrity (a Houston gay rights group) reports that the gay conference held recently in Fort Worth was a great success, with 18 organizations joining in a state-wide coalition. Nationally-known gay activist Franklin Kameny called it "the 1776 for homosexuals in Texas". Coordinated efforts toward anti-discrimination legislation will be a top priority. They are eager for us to send a delegate to the next meeting, which will be August 3 in San Antonio. (4) We have invited Toni Mayes to speak at our program meeting on August 22 at 7:30 pm. Toni recently had a sex change operation Is an authority on transex- ualism from both personal experience and academic research. She also has some interesting observations about the different treatment she has received since she changed her biological gender from male to female. Pokey Anderson
