Transcript 15. IT ALL DEPENDS ON WHO YOU TALK TO This is psychotherapy? ...The duckling sat in the corner nursing his bad humor. Then he began to think of the fresh air and sunshine and an uncontrollable longing seized him to float on the water. At last he could not help telling the hen about it. "What on earth possesses you?" she asked. "You have nothing to do. That is why you get these fantasies in your head. Lay some eggs or take to purring, and you will get over it." ^5s»v "But it is so delicious to float on the water," said ' the duckling. It is so delicious to feel it rushing over your head when you dive to the bottom." "That would be a fine amusement!" said the hen. "I think you have gone mad. Ask the cat about it. He is the wisest creature X know. Ask him if he is fond of floating on the water or diving under it. I say nothing about myself. Ask our mistress herself, the old woman. There is no one in the world cleverer than she is. Do you suppose she has any desire to float on the water or to dive underneath it?" "You do not understand me," said the duckling. from The Ugly Duckling by Hans Christian Andersen Sometimes you have to talk to one of your own kind to be understood1 This is the reason for the existence of Gay Switchboard: to provide a truly understanding source of information and help for gay people. Volunteers are now being recruited for this work, which is of a kind that mature, concerned people often find deeply satisfying. Here there is an opportunity to help others like themselves, in situations where they can draw from their own experience as a gay person. There is also the opportunity to help dispose of the stereotype of gays as frivolous and irresponsible people. A Switchboard worker often finds that he or she is the sole confidant of some deeply troubled caller, and the realization of this gives a deeper meaning to one's past experience—especially if it has involved suffering because of rejection for being gay. On Sept. 8, at 7:30 p.m., the Gay Community Service Group will hold a meeting at the Human Growth Center of the San Antonio Free Clinic for the purpose of reviewing current Switchboard operation and providing information for those who want to know more about this activity. There is a special need for Switchboard workers who are members of ethnic minorities, but the principal qualifications are, as always, maturity and responsibility. For further information call 733-7300, 7-11 p.m.
