Transcript ^CONNECTIONS' AUSTIN GAYS AT DEMOCRATIC NATIONAL CONVENTION Janna Zumbrun and Steve Thomas, former Austin Lesbian Gay Political Caucus co-chairs, returned to Austin the week of August 25 from New York City, where they represented Austin lesbians and gays at the Democratic National Convention. Steve, who was elected first alternate of the Texas Kennedy caucus, and Janna, who was elected to the National Platform Committee, were both seated as delegates at the convention. The lesbian/gay caucus succeeded in acquiring enough signatures to nominate a candidate for vice-president: Melvin Boozer, a black from the Washington D.C. Gay Activists Alliance. The nomination served the purpose of gaining 15 minutes of convention time for speeches. This occurred about 5:30 p.m. on Thursday. Ginny Apuzzo and Bill Krause, lesbian/gay caucus co-chairs, gave Boozer's nominating speeches. The platform plank condemning discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation was passed without debate. Perhaps more significantly, the Democratic Party adopted a rule within the Party charter prohibiting discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation within the work of the Party. The lesbian/gay caucus also met with Presidential special assistant Anne Wexler. Janna reported that the meeting was a very frank discussion of the grievances of gays with regard to the Carter administration, and that Wexler's attitude towards our concerns was basically positive. Other open lesbian or gay Texans seated as delegates included Louise Young, Al Calkin of Dallas, and Larry Bagneris of Houston. 1MMT1 HbwJ WW B^r If ^fl ■ IL^te^3|H Photo by Kwong Hui AUSTIN SKATING PARTY~ Austin's lesbian/gay community is cordially invited to a roller skating party. It will be held at Hot Wheels Skateland, 1606 Stassney Lane, in South Austin on Monday, September 22 from 8:00 to 10:00 p.m. Admission will be $2.50 at the door. This is just enough to cover hall rental and expenses. The skating party is sponsored by Affirmation Gay Mormons, Austin Lambda Cultural, Austin Lesbian Gay Political Caucus, Dignity, Gay Community Services, and Metropolitan Community Church of Austin. Y'all come! GCS PHONE COUNSELORS NEEDED by Rob Gips Gay Community Services currently needs volunteer counselors. Duties include telephone and drop-in peer counseling, as well as making referrals to various Austin service organizations, businesses and professionals. We need mature, service-oriented individuals to work from 6:00 to 10:00 PM one night per week. You'll be performing a valuable service for Austin. Peer counseling is a lot of fun, too! Interested lesbians and gay men should telephone the GCS office at 477-6699 any evening between 6:00 and 10:00 PM for more information. GCS PERSONAL AWARENESS GROUP STARTS The Gay Community Services men's personal awareness group is now meeting at 8:00 p.m. every Friday in the rap room at the University 'Y', 2330 Guadalupe. Several individuals had expressed the need for a small group of the same people meeting each week because of the difficulty of relating to a large, ever- changing group of strangers. These groups are intended to fill this need. Two meetings were held in August with approximately 6 people attending each one. GCS coordinator Lynn Aday is convening the men's group. A lesbian's group convener is still needed. For more information, contact GCS or come to the Friday night meeting. Read your news in CONNECTIONS
