GAY COMMUNITY SERVICES ' / i HOTLINE ' p 477-6699 GAYS AND THE DRAFT by Ken Carpenter The resumption of draft registration has created problems for all young people, but particularly for gay men. During previous military drafts homosexuals were automatically exempted as morally and psychologically unfit. So the decision facing gay men was simply whether to stay in the closet and be drafted or come out and have a 4F classification permanently on their record. Many young men assume admitting gayness will still guarantee an automatic exenption. However, that is not necessarily true. The Matlovich case and other recent court decisions make it uncertain whether the military can automatically exclude homosexual people. Furthermore, in the late 1960's, so many men claimed to be gay in order to avoid Vietnam that the Selective Service System began demanding documentary proof, or merely drafted gay men anyway. Now gay men, in addition to deciding whether or not to come out to the government, face the possibility that they will be drafted even if they do. And while the military may not be able to exclude openly gay people, it is likely that they will continue to make life pretty difficult for them. All this adds up to a very difficult decision for our young, draft-eligible gay brothers and sisters. The American Friends Service Committee, a Quaker-related organization which has been doing draft counseling since the First World War, is addressing the special problems of gay people and the draft. AFSC and the Austin Draft Information Center have trained gay counselors available for confidential draft counseling in person or by phone.
