Nolder Gay The line grew, stretching off the wooden ramp, down the sidewalk, past the end of the building, until It jumped past the firehouse and doubled back along the adjacent street. Babies In strollers were there, and retirees: schoolchildren and college students: couples and singles, gay and non-gay: women and men of all colors together. There were people remembering someone who had died of AIDS. people llving with AIDS (Including some brought by ambulance), people coping with the epidemic.

Words are not what the quilt is about. but words are all I have. As I was staffing the entrance to the old Columbus Avenue armory (now the Park Plaza Castle) on Frtday afternoon, I heard one woman, evidently a reporter, say to another, "First I'm going to cry my eyes out. Then I'm going to write my story." Here's my story, a thing of scraps and pieces, like an uncomplete panel for the quilt. I am not one of those talented and dedicated people who brought this off. I can barely sew on a button, let alone design and produce a panel. I did send in some money and asked for fliers to distribute, so I was notified of volunteer training sessions and signed up for one of them, I thus became one unit in the small army of six hundred or more Bostonians whose legs. arms, voices. and hearts were enTlsted as volunteers. We were the foot soldiers of this gentle revolution. Since I had answered project office phones for seven continuous hours on Thursday I did not see the exhibit being set up. On Friday morning, then, I went in a couple of hours before my five-hour stint as a greeter began, In order to spend some quter personal time with It. Spread all over the drill floor, draped against the walls. suspended from the celling In double ranks were the names.

There were chefs caps and teddy bears. college lnsl~la and photographs. rainbows ancf stars. One man Is commemorated, God bless him, with a swirling green taffeta ball gown and a pair of black pumps. One panel reads "She Died In Prison; We Cannot Say Her Name." There Is one "For My Brother.• whose parents will not permit even his first name to be used. Boston AIDS AcUon created a strtk1ng panel showing a map of the state Inscribed 'We Will Remember Your Names." I thought I could handle It. I knew only a few of those commemorated; I'd gone to their memorial services (plus a few others): I'd done my grieving. Or so I thought. Until I came to the panel for a beautiful, talented man I'd known who died on Memorial Day, 1987, at age thirty, two weeks after being diagnosed.

We volunteers, who mostly worked four or five hours at a stn:tch, wen: on enough of an emotional roller-coaster as It was. But we found we could put our own feelings aside most of the time as we helped someone find a particular panel, or talked quietly about the NAMES Project and what It meant with someone waiting In thellne.

That Is. the task for our day, and through the sad times to come, Is to love and to create. In the very midst of the desert. For what I learned as a NAMES Project volunteer Is that love can overcome even the sharpness of death, can successfully challenge death's dominion. The quilt teaches that Jove Is ultlmatefy stronger than death Itself. and we have to hold onto that. Through this experience also I have been enabled to enter more deeply Into the pain of younger gay men In their twenties and thlrtfes, who have burled more of their friends In the last few years tha their grandmothers have, who fear their own risks, who have lived more closely with !ADS than I ever will.

I don't give a shit about baseball or hetero sex, buy I enloyed the hell out of this movie about both. Debuting director Ron Shelton works from his own script, the best since Moonstruck, and scores a home run his first time at bat. Bull Durham I loaded with Insights about life, love and minor league baseball. Susan Sarandon sleeps with one member of the Durham Bulls each season. This year It's between Tun Robbins, the wild young pitcher ("He fucks like he pllclies--sorta all over the place"), and Kevin Costner, the veteran catcher who scares her because she can't Ile him to the bed and read to him from Walt Whitman ("A guy'll listen to anything If he thinks It's foreplay1. She's got to be on top and she knows Costner, without being sexist about It. won"t let her. "I love macho male bonding: Sarandon quips In one of the movies many Jibes al its own conventions, even If it Is probably latent homosexuality rechanneled. As long as It"s rechanneled, who cares? Training Robbins as If he were the Karate l{Jd, she gets him to wear a black lace garter under his unlfonn. He jumps when Costner reaches to adjust It for him. but later thinks. "'this underwear feels kinda sexy. Don't make me queer, docs It? No. I ain't queer." Macho hangups are also addressed In an umpire's reaction to being railed a cocksucker. So you see. Bull Durham's about more than sex and baseball, but It's one of the best movies ever on those two subjects. RED HEAT Red Heat opens In a Soviet coed bathhouse. where men pump while women soak, and nobody touches each other. The men. including Arnold Sehwartenegger. wear little aprons that cover them In front but have only ties hanging down the cracks of their asses In l:iack.

Cay Signs Is the first book to help the male homosexual of our culture to see a cosmic vll'w of /tis life ... Leonard Matlovich Biography Portrays the Making of a Conservative Gay Activist In September 1986, Leonard Matlovick. the controversial. gay rights activist, learned he had AIDS. Despite his natural optimism. Matlovich sensed It was lime to tell his story, and began collaborating with the writer Michael Hippler on his biography. The book was finished shortly before Leonard's death, and wlll be published In ,he spring of 1989 by Alyson Pyubllcallons of Boston. While Matlovlch's Image as a politically conservative gay man broke many preconceptions about gays and lesbians. Matlovlch wanted to leave behind a deeper. lasting portrayal of both his life and beliefs. The resulting book Is filled with Leonard's thoughtful reflections on his rhlldhood. his break wtth the military, his role as a gay rights activist, and his battle against AIDS. In the book, Hippler details Matlovlch's five -year court case against the U.S. Alr Force which began In 1975 when he was discharged for acknowledging his homosexuality. Matlovlch's coming out was part of a plan to force the Alr Force to change their policy of discharging gays and lesbians. The cook also records Matlovlch's Instantaneous gay celebrity that resulted from nls appearance on the rover of llME. and how It changed his life. While Leonard relished his leadership role, he was surprised by resentment among long time activists, and by the crltlrlsm he received for accepting a financial settlement from the Alr Force In 1980. "Some people accused me of selllng out when I took the money," Matlovich counters In his biography, '"but I didn't see It that way. No, from my point of view II was a victory, for I showed that you i:..an take on the military and win." In an especially poignant part of the book, Leonard speaks movingly about his fight against AIDS and how II changed him. lbe politic.al conservative 'became •·radicalized In a conservative kind of way" by the Reagan Administration ' s mishandling of the AIDS crisis. Matlovich was arrested at the June 1987 civil disobedience protest In front of the White House. "For a conservative Republican who has always believed In Jaw and order." confesses Matlovlch. "II was an Incredible experience to break the law deliberately. Bui I would do It again and again. for I was always too much or· a goody two-shoes before." "Several years ago, well before he was diagnosed with AIDS." remembers Sasha Alyson, publisher of the Matlovlch biography, "Leonard told me he was sorry that Harvey Milk had been cremated, because he thought It was Important for future generations to have a physical grave site at which to remember Milk By the time he died, Leonard had not only created a memorial for Harvey Milk, but he had also created one for himself with his tombstone and a biography through which people could remember what he stood for.· I Leonard Matlovicb (rl(ht) with Michael Hippler ~r SOUTHWEST AlnS COMMITTEE COMMUNITY UPDATE Southwest AIDS Convnittee, Inc. has experienced a great deal of growth in the past year and we felt It was time to l.4)date you on our programs, policies, staffing, voll.rlteers and our flllding programs. We have been providing education and services to the El Paso Gay Corrmmity since 1984 and expect to continue to provide those serviCeS until there Is no need for us. That time will come when there is a cure for AIDS! Levi Strauus Foundation - $36,000 - this grant provides education in english and spanish to the El Paso community. The public service announcements you have seen on TV are part of that grant. SAFE has provided us with additional funds to produce these for the movie theaters. Part of an additional grant from the Chicago Resource Center also paid for this production. The Levi grant also provides us with a paid educator. Hightower Foundation • $7,500 - provides us with an Administrative Assistant· $1,800 • Women. Children and AIDS Workshop at UTEP School of Nursing. AIDS Medicaid Waiver Seed Grant - $20,000 - this particular grant from the state of New Mexico Department of Human Services provided us w~h funds to purchase our telephone syst~, office furniture, computer equipment and start up salanes for thts important program. Under th,s program SWAC employs a Case Manager for PWAs in southern New Mexico. New Mexico Department of Health and Environment • $57,000 • under this grant, we hired a Hispanic educator for southern New Mexico and executed a number of projects including posters and billboards. We also produced in spanish and english a 15 minute video production on AIDS in the Hispanic community Community Development Block Grant - $10,000 - this tS one of the most important fundings to date in that this is the FIRST time the city of El Paso has openly recognised the need lor organizations such as SWAC. This grant will allow us to continue our assistance to diagnosed and newly diagnosed HIV positives and those with ARC and AIDS We do not compete with other El Paso organizations for funding. Much of our support comes in the form of private donations from concerned citizens ~lie yourseH and your fr,ends. Most of our grants are specific and directed towards areas of the community where no one has had the loresight to attempt to reach. For instance, SWAC feels that there is a great need to better educate Gay men about Safer Sex and has written a large funding request to do a one ye11 program to properly educate those that wish to be educated and have fun at the same time. We have also requested some $700,000 to provide an alternative care facility for PWAs and a home for the indigent stricken with AIDS. Ambitious, yes! Necessary, yes! SWAC and Confidentiality We havP. worked very hard to set up a system whereby we can effectively protect the identity of HIV positive individuals, persons with ARC and AIDS. SWAC never releases the name of any individual without specific permission. Occasionally, someone will ask 'How's my friend doing?' or 'Is so and so positive?' and we are unable to answer. Confidentiality is of the highest concern to us and we make every attempt to keep that information stnctly limited to those persons who have an absolute need to know. We caulion everyone to know who you are dealing with before you release your health status to them. It Is a violation of the Texas CommlJlicable Disease ACT to release the name of any inovidual who is HIV positive or has AIDS to anyone without the specific permission of that individual. That law is to protect everyone. Programs Advocacy Program which utilizes volunteer 'Buddies· to assist with day to day functions of PWAs; social work assistance program which finds resources within the community to whtch PWAs might avail themselves; food bank which was started 1n a ma1or way with a donation of $1,000 from SAFE and continues operation by Metropotitan Community Church of El Paso; Adopt A Patient program under whic.'1 !ocal churches agree to assist an individual PWA; Dental Clime which will be available at no cost to PWA or SWAC on a monthly basis; case management Lnder the State of New Mexico's Medicaid Waiver Program which pays for patients' medicines, doctor V1S1ts, nursing and homemaker serv,ces; Medical Adv,sory Board which will assist in finding physicians willing to work on a sliding scale; Psychological Assistance Program whereby psychologists are available on a free or sliding scale basis; Speakers Bureau which does presentations on AIDS to the community; AIDS in the Workplace Educational program; PWA support groups; Loving Others Support Group (friends and relatives of PWAs); and case management of HIV/AIDS individuals who attend weekly HIV Clinic at Texas Tech School of Medicine; and, of COlJ'se, SWACs on-going condoms/education project for Gay Men. -·--~~---~The majority of our programs are established for both English and Spanish speaking individuals. Volunteers 3WAC continues to seek volunteers from all walks of life. Judy Bunten, our Director of Volunteer Services is herself a volunteer. Doug carnell, Chairperson of SWAC received the 1988 Volunteer of the Year Award from the Volunteer Bureau of United Way of El Paso. The rewards 1n doing volunteer work are great and we encourage all of you to get involved now. Without our volunteers we would be unable to provide many of our programs. Sll11 All the SWAC staffers are underpaid and overworked but believe by doing more than is required they can and do make a difference. Tarry Call, Executive Dirlldor was approved lo that posrtion in June of 1987 This was a full time volunteer position until February of 1988 when sufficient funds were received to pay a minimal salary Favonte quote, a professor from Vanderbitt Universrty speaking to the President's Commission on AIDS: -We can all talk about AIDS until we are all dead.· He believes there will be a cure for AIDS but until there is we must all do what we can to he~ Ramon Flores, Case Manager/Educator was a SWAC volunteer until this position became available. Ramon is hard working and dedicated to providing service to those with AIDS. Ramon is also a Board Member of Metropolitan Community Church. Judy Bunten, Director of Volunteer Services is herself a volunteer. Judy came to SWAC aher a 'famous· El Paso drag queer, friend told her about what we do and why we do it.

During a recent Medicaid Audrt, the Auditor commented that Edith's case management records were the best they had ever seen. Felipe Luna, Hispanic Educator for southern New Mexico had very little knowledge about AIDS when he was hired in February of this year. He is now considered an authority on Hispanics and AIDS and has attended numerous seminars. His openness and honesty in dealing with AIDS has helped all the SWAC staff realize that AIDS is a concern for all of us Keith Wilkinson, Administrative Assistant, came lo SWAC from the US A1my Keith helps us m every way imaginable in the office.
