Starting on the second Tuesday of the month, and for 120 days thereafter, you can forget about nuclear waste, inflation, herpes, Iran, and crowsfeet. From the Red River to the Rio Grande, all other perils will shrink "to insignificance. In short, the principal threat to your life, liberty and property will be the 67th Legislature. As far as Your Reporter can see, there will be no organized gay lobby. It seems likely that a bill will be introduced to REPEAL 21.06 (the anti-sodomy law) . Don't expect to see your TRAVIS COUNTY DELEGATION rushing to get it on the calendar, although this proposal has passed the Travis County Democratic Convention for more years than Your Reporter cares to recount. Look for MONTROSE MUSCLE to put the issue to the Legislature. Although the REPEAL is a plank Of the TEXAS DEMOCRATIC PLATFORM, expect to see the bill buried immediately in a hostile committee. This is progress, of a sort. Two years ago, asking a member to introduce the bill was seen as a pc'^tless burn of political currency. Now, the HARRIS COUNTY DELEGATION, if no other, understands that gay votes count. Repressive legislation is more to the liking of the MORONIC MAJORITY types. Their first vehicle this session is an anti-headshop bill. Though last session's anti-bookstore bill sneaked through while the gay lobby was worrying about POPPERS, the bookstores seem none the worse for it. However, the anti-headshop bill just might pass with anti-popper provisions and broad enough definitions to give the bookstores more hassles. A few other nasties seem possible, but let's not put ideas into anyone's empty head. The Lesbian/Gay Democrats of Texas (LGDT) are putting together a proposal for a statewide lobby project. Hopefully, everything will be finalized by the beginning of the legislative session on January 13, according to Scotty Scott, who is a LGDT member, as well as being Austin Lesbian/Gay Political Caucus (ALGPC) co-chair.
