Transcript 12. MA BELL RELENTS! NO LONGER DOWN ON GAYS (Will your telephone repairman SWISH?) The August 10 issue of The Wall Street Journal reports a new policy statement by American Telephone & Telegraph Co., the parent company of the Bell Telephone System, concerning employment of gays. The statement sets forth policy to be followed by the operating subsidiaries (such as Southwestern Bell, locally). Discrimination against gays on the basis of sexual orientation not affecting job performance is no longer allowed and supervisors are cautioned against seeking information about such orientation when there is no job-related reason. Furthermore, a job applicant is not to be rejected because of known homosexuality or for belonging to a gay activist group! This startlingly liberal stance taken by A.T.& T. will presumably end the rather grim attitudes taken by most of the operating subsidiaries toward gays. The company has been under pressure by the National Gay Task Force because of its lack of performance in the gay rights area, and some of the company's policies have been outlawed (in Minneapolis, for example) by antidiscrimination ordinances, such as the one under study for San Antonio. A.T.&T. is the country's largest private employer, with over 1,000,000 people in the various divisions. A BRIEF EDITORIAL This paper is late; this paper is rather long, and this paper doesn't have in it half the things the staff wanted it to. AS you may have noticed, this ia the first issue of TOGETHER GAY as an "independent publication" ( whatever THAT means ). In becoming independent, we passed through a commercial issue, complete with ads; it never got to the bars, thanks to the generosity of a number of bar owners and other patrons who have offered to pay publication costs for this newsletter to keep it FREE to you, the reader, without ads. At last, here lt is; the first issue of the second volume of TOGETHER GAY, and thanks to everybody whose work and patience have made it a continuing reality of the coramuni- of San Antonio GayB.
