Continued from page 1. examples of the types of legislation that the lobbying effort is currently up against, she mentioned a bill to bar gay teachers from public classrooms (which has since died in committee), Senator Mengdcn's bill to bar same sex dancing, drag, entertaining in drag, and a wide range of other activities defined as obscene from on-premise alcoholic beverage establishments, and a bill introduced by Representative Polumbo that would add butyl nitrite (poppers) to the Texas Controlled Substances Act. She was also very concerned with the possibility of irreparably damaging the career of one of our few supporters in the Legislature. It seems that it is much easier for our legislators to oppose repressive legislation aimed at the gay community, which is usually interpreted as a civil rights issue, than it is to actively seek the repeal of existing discriminatory legislation such as 21.06, which is currently seen as advocating and/or approving the homosexual lifestyle. She added, however, that Representative Sam Hudson had indicated that he would be willing to introduce a bill to repeal 21.06 but had been discouraged from doing so. Karol Phelan, In her response to the original decision lo seek a repeal measure, has written in part thai the "TGF1 must face the reality thai the legislature has, in the past, wen lit to pass discriminatory legislation and to pub- , licly mock efforts to repeal Section 21.06 of the Texas Penal Code. With this prevailing mood, asking a member to make a token gesture to the gay community by merely introducing a repeal measure is ludicrous." She also urged the education of the Legislature as to the needs of the gay community and also the education of the gay community on the "existing political environment and the importance of timing" in the legislative effort.V DRAG SHOW ENTRY BLANK Name: Stage name: Address: -Zip:. : Special needs:. ? ? 9 ? 0 A 9 9 9 • ■ Questions? <*. 1"> • 9 ?
