Transcript november 1978 gay austin 7 GCS DISCO DANCE PLANNED FOR NOV 10 Gay Community Services will sponsor a disco dance in the University Y auditorium on Nov. 10. The dance will run from 10pm until 2am. ...texas GUBERNATORIAL CANDIDATE HILL MEETS WITH TGTF Members of the Texas Gay Task Force met with Democratic gubernatorial candidate John Hill Oct. 21 at his hotel suite in Austin. According to TGTF moderator Kathy Deitsch, the meeting offered no surprises. TGTF already knew that Hill, if elected governor, will neither lead nor put together an effort to repeal the Texas sodomy law (Section 21.06 of the penal code), which makes private consensual homosexual acts between adults illegal. But, Deitsch said, Hill is willing to work with and learn from the Texas gay community. Hill realizes that he is not knowledgeable about the problems of gay Texans and has expressed an intention of becoming better informed, Deitsch said. While Deitsch was overall pleased with the results of the meeting with Hill, other members of the TGTF delegation were less enthusiastic. An Austin TGTF member said that due to the meeting he could no longer support Hill, and would vote in November for the Raza Unida candidate. 'ftie/TGTF member was upset due to a last minute change in the location of the meeting initiated by Hill s staff, and due to the apparent fact that Hill's staff did not inform the candidate of the meeting until less than an hour before it was to take place. Deitsch cotrmented that TGTF could offer neither money nor personpower to Hill's campaign, and should therefore expect little, if anything, in return. She said that as a whole the Texas gay ccomunity is politically very naive and has a lot to learn. She GAY STRATEGY AT THE POLLS CONTINUED FROM PAGE 3 None of this gives any clear indication of which is the better candidate. It says only that each will use the tactic of impugning his opponent's masculinity. In short, it is an appeal to bigotry in the electorate. As for Proposition Six, this is a referendum question on the California ballot. It is populism in the vein of Proposition 13. This one calls for the firing of any public school teacher who publicly expresses any positive sentiments about gay life or gay people. Gay rights advocates in California predict a narrow victory for our side. My own view is that this is wishful thinking. I feel that Proposition Six will pass by a margin of 60% to 407.. If this should be the case, my feeling is that our time would be best spent in finding our brothers and sisters who are hurt by this display of prejudice, and surrounding them with love. stressed a need for patience ("it takes more that I ever imagined"), persistence and participation. GAY DEMOCRATS READY, VISIBLE AT CONVENTION Lesbian/Gay Democrats of Texas wove their way through a political process never before tackled by Texas gay delegates during the State Democratic Convention in Ft. Worth, Sept. 14-16. The gay caucus had begun its work last February and by May 6, the gay vote was identified to a greater extent than ever before. Democratic and Republican precinct conventions saw resolutions introduced related to gay people and individuals supportive of those resolutions elected as delegates to senatorial district conventions. In August, some 50 openly gay and lesbian delegates and alternates met to plan for the State Democratic Convention. Eventually, 110 elected gay/lesbian delegates and alternates made themselves known to the caucus, all in varying stages of openness about their lifestyle. Elected to party committees to serve temporarily at the convention were Janna Zumbrun, Austin, Resolutions; Bettie Naylor, San Antonio, Rules; and a lone rural delegate (cannot name) on Nominations. Many supporters were elected to the State Democratic Executive Coranit- tee. The caucus was fortunate to have one of its own elected by his district to serve on the party's governing board (SDEC). The Lesbian/Gay Democrats' primary goal at the convention was to pass a resolution supporting repeal of Section 21.06 of the Texas Penal Code. If such a resolution would have passed, it would have recommended that the Texas Legislature at its next meeting move to decriminalize all consensual sex acts between adults. Thus far, nineteen states have removed such restrictions. The sexual/affectional preference resolution was heard t>y the Resolutions Comnittee and failed in a 15-9 MORE NEWS PAGE 10 1 jiiiiii i i iiiiiii THE STAUI0H BOOKSTOBJE 706 E.6th Str»«t AUSTXN.T&KAS WottAegmpxU, &«Att*e®od"
