Transcript BOOK REVIEW: TENNESSEE WTT.T.TAMS MEMOIRS (Bantam; 320pp. 31.95) What goes on inside the dead of an acclaimed playwrite? what inner agonies does a famous personality experience regarding his homosexuality, personal life, career, talent, et.? Tennessee Williams probably did not set out to specifically answer such questions in his memoirs, but he does achieve this for himself as well as giving a very candid insight into the life and loves of his checkered career. Here is an honest expression of himself as he feels and remembers it, digging deep into his heart, and consciousness, his struggles, his defeats and victories. Williams' memoirs are at times funny, offensive, or sad—but always frank and apparently honest. He has displayed his private life with no holds barred, afact which may actually help the rest of us to see our life struggles in a different light. (There is a copy of this book in the GCS library.) Rob Shivers HOUSTON RALLY (conclusion) seen now as ever. We have civil rights ordinances, but gays in Austin are to have to be prepared to fight to maintain those ordinances. The fight for guarantees of civil rights for gay people throughout the country is the concern of the Austin gay community and of every other community. The anti-gay movement can easily gain momentum, especially since they are dealing with scare tactics, sensationalism,and unsubstantiated myths. We need to keep up out momentum to preserve our rights,just as any other minority group does. Art I hear the men always the men whispering at comers and inthe offices and in the market places and in their congresses and courts and in the schools and in their books and in the church shout that no god or deity female or m^lp may cut across the way of their word or speak any other way than with their sword. I hear the women, often, say this, too. What I would say if they'd hear would be: You don't know Jesus as lover or Orphus as queer, don't see Jesus cruise St. Matthew, as Caravaggio did, don't know John the Beloved nor Buddha's Ananda, nor what the Berdache do that men like me make some gods to protect men like me from you. Our defenses are strong, and impenetrable. As 3orobudor or Chartes or Esse collect cosmic energy, make non-A A, so we are guardians of another way other tools beyond the men I hear always the men whempering at corners with their man-made rules. Calvin Doucet TEXAS GAY CONFERENCE (conclusion) a friendship period.
