Transcript CONNECTIONS! GAYS CAN SUE A&M The United States Supreme Court has ruled that Gay Student Services may sue Texas A&M University. The Texas A&M student group's lawsuit seeks official recognition as an on-campus student organization. .The battle has been going on for four years. In mid-December, 1980, the Supreme Court kept 'the group's hopes alive by refusing to hear the University's arguments that it should be immune from 'such civil rights issues. Gay Student Services, a group of students on A&M's College Station campus, sought but was denied the University's recognition as a student organization in 1976. Such recognition is required before a group can obtain access to university bulletin boards and to school facilities for special events. John Kholdus, University vice president for student services, told the group that homosexual conduct is illegal in Texas and that Gay Student Services was likely to promote and incite illegal acts. There are three officially registered lesbian/ gay groups at the University of Texas at Austin. Gay Liberation won the right to be an on-campus group [at UT-Austin in a court case in 1976. Gay Liberation ■had disbanded by the time it finally won the right to ;be an on-campus student group at UT. Only one of the [three officially registered gay groups at UT is currently active: Law Students for Human Rights. -Editor f HOLY TRINITY DISBANDS Holy Trinity Church of Austin, our Episcopal-type lesbian/gay congregation, officially disbanded December 1, 1980. Like the Metropolitan Community Church of Austin, Holy Trinity was hit with a large rent increase. Spokesperson Burl Anderson told CONNECTIONS that the church membership couldn't support the increased operating expenses, "Holy Trinity was caught in a vicious circle," Anderson said. "We needed a full time pastor to build up a membership which could sustain the church. But a full time pastor requires a large enough congregation to pay a salary." Anderson felt that many Episcopal gays felt more comfortable' in their established churches. "Many Episcopalians believe that God's grace is channeled to the congregation through the priest," he observed. There were many visitors, but the membership never climbed much above the small core group which founded the church. Holy Trinity was in operation at 1606 South Congress for over a year, and has been a regular CONNECTIONS advertiser. We're sorry to see them go. 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.
