Gay Signs stresses the significance of Rising signs in determining one's personality traits. One is more likely to get a better picture of himself by reading the forecast listed for both his Rising sign and Sun sign. In some ways, your Rising sign is even more imponant than your Sun sign....The placement of the Moon. Mercury, and Venus are extremely important, and in gay charts, some of the slow-moving planets, such as Uranus, Pluto, and Neptune, are critical.... Mr. Kneeland lists all Sun sign/Rising sign combinations for easy reference. His final objective, as once sought in earlier times, is to provide guidance in understanding the spiritual challenges of life. As stated din the Foreword by author Louise L. Hay, J.E. Kneeland has expressed here a great depth of astrological knowledge, and he shows a wonderful abiliiy and style in sharing his understanding with us. Gay Signs is the first book to help the male homosexual of our culture to see a cosmic view of his 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 time 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 will be published in ihe spring of 1989 by Alyson I publications of Boston. While Matlovich*s image as a politically conservative gay man broke many preconceptions about gays and lesbians, Matlovich 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 childhood, his break with the military, his role as a gay rights activist, and his battle against AIDS. In the book, Hippler details Matlovich's five-year court case against the U.S. Air Force which began in 1975 when he was discharged for acknowledging his homosexuality. Matlovich's coming out was part of a plan to force the Air Force to change their policy of discharging gays and lesbians. The book also records Matlovich's instantaneous gay celebrity that resulted from his appearance on the cover of TIME, and how it changed his life. While Leonard relished nls leadership role, he was surprised by resentment among long-time activists, and by the criticism he received for accepting a financial settlement from the Air Force in 1980. "Some people accused me of selling 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 it was a victory, for I showed that you can take on the military and win." In an especially poignant part of the book, Leonard speaks movingly about his fight against AIDS and how it changed him. The political conservative oecame "radicalized in a conservative kind of way" by the Reagan Admin is t rat ions 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 law and order," confesses Matlovich. "it was an incredible experience to break the law deliberately. But I would do it again and again, for I was always too much of a goody two-shoes before." "Several years ago, well before he was diagnosed with AIDS." remembers Sasha Alyson, publisher of the Matlovich 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."
