Transcript view iW 1973 GAY AUSTIN 3 Gay rights proven unpopular BY ART MORRIS, III ... again THE ST. PAUL REFEROW1 HAS PASSED, There is now no ordinance protecting gay people from discrimination based on sexual orientation in employment, public accommodations or housing in St. Paul. The constitutionally questionable practice of allowing the majority to determine the rights of a minority group had occurred again. But however unfortunate, the results were not wholely unexpected. Eugene and Wichita gays need our support now. Send what you can to help them in their struggle to preserve human rights. Remember, the ordinance you help save may one day be your own. This country has never been one to uphold the rights of any minority in any election. Suffrage for women was not gained through popular vote. Nor was the right to vote given Blacks as a result of a public vote. Can we imagine a black woman's being allowed to attend any state university if her admission had to be approved by popular vote at the turn of the century? Eugene Citizens for Human Rights PO Box 402, Eugene OR 97440 Homophile Alliance of Sedgewick County PO Box 2573, Wichita KS "67201 Tri-City National Defense Fund PO Box 3949, Hollywood CA 90028 Then why all of the uproar and surprise over our loss in St. Paul? The opposition to the 4-year-old ordinance was led by the Baptist-dominated Citizens Alert for Morality. They fought with a campaign of fear, misinformation and hate. The manipulation of the voting public worked. The higher than expected turn-out of voters accounted for the overwhelming defeat of St. Paul's gays' rights. YOU LAID BACK AUSTIN GAY FOLKS may be wondering how all of this concerns you. Your support of gay rights in other cities is most important. At this very moment both Eugene, Oregon, and Wichita, Kansas are gearing up for May referenda on gay rights. If these referenda are not stopped, Austinites may be facing one of their own before they know it. Just look whom the Allandale Baptist Church has invited to Municipal Auditorium this very weekend.
