GAY COMMUNITY SERVICES ? / HOTLINE ' p 477-6699 Sunday, May 25, A Different Drummer made its last broadcast. The program was canceled because lesbians and gays are "a special interest group" which has gotten all the attention we deserve. There is only one lesbian/ gay radio program left in Texas. Significantly, the manager of the station which broadcasts it is gay. April 26, CBS Television broadcast "Gay Power, Gay Politics," which purported to be a documentary. It depicted gay men as satanic creatures out to destroy "the wholesome American nuclear family" and ignored lesbians. The fear this program has engendered among straights has already been used against us at the Travis County Democratic Convention (see page 11). My way of screaming "I'm mad as hell and I'm not going to take it anymore" is publishing this newspaper. This month, I'm going to do some other screaming: at KUT-FM, at CBS Television News, at the Austin CBS affiliate, KTBC, and probably at the Federal Communications Commission. Please join me. Write a letter to KUT-FM and tell them that thirteen shows aren't enough to correct centuries of fear and superstition. Write CBS-TV News and tell them you won't tolerate irresponsible, biased journalism any longer. Write the FCC and tell them you don't like seeing your airwaves polluted by slander. The FCC has finally recognized lesbians and gays as a "legitimate minority group" which broadcasters must consider in their programming. Write your local station and tell them you want prcgramming on homosexuality which isn't poisoned by fear and superstition. We have gotten this far by working together. But we can lose everything we've gained very quickly. We must support and protect all our lesbian/gay media and all our gay brothers and sisters. If we don't hang together, we will surely hang separately. Please help us show what gay power and gay pride really are. c^yjfej>&^ Addresses Federal Communications Commission Complaints and Compliance Division Washington, D.C. 20036 Station Manager KUT-FM Radio Communications Building B University of Texas at Austin Austin, Texas 78712 KTBC-TV P.O.
