Transcript Vugust, 197S Gay Austin FCC CONSIDERS GAYS A SIGNIFICANT MINORITY TO BE CONSULTED IN LICENSE RENEWALS The Federal Communications Commission has agreed to propose that leaders of all significant community groups, in a broadcast area, must be interviewed by local broadcasters to meet their community ascertainment requirements ... whether or not such groups appear on the 'checklist' of groups in the Community Ascertainment Primer. This represents a change from previous policy which required that only those groups on the checklist be contacted, leaving other community leaders to be contacted as an option of the individual broadcasters. It is yet to be decided if the burden of seeking out leaders of the gay community will be placed on broadcasters or whether it will be up to gay organizations to present themselves for ascertainment. The Federal Communications Commission has agreed to propose that leaders of all significant community groups in a broadcast area, including leaders of the gay community, must be interviewed by local broadcasters to meet their community ascertainment requirements ... whether or not such groups appear on the checklist of groups in the Community Ascertainment Primer. National Gay Task Force cochairpersons Jean O'Leary and Bruce Voeller said, "It was clear from the discussion by FCC that lesbians and gay men were considered by the Commission to be a significant minority in many American communities. FCC has at last recognized our right of access to the public airways, on a par with all other major segments of American society. NGTF RECOMMENDED FOR PARTICIPATION IN 1981 WHITE HOUSE CONFERENCE ON FAMILIES The National Gay Task Force has been recommended for inclusion on the Advisory Council of the upcoming White House Conference on Families scheduled in 1981. The White House Conference has been the suject of considerable political controversy as to whether the conference should reflect"the actual diversity of American family life or confine itself to the concerns of traditional nuclear famililes." NGTF has recommended Kerry Woodward of Minneapolis be appointed a member of the conference advisory panel and would welcome support for that nomination from religious and family-service groups around the country. It urges local gay groups to attempt to obtain such support. Woodward, an administrator of the Minneapolis Committee for Gay Rights, is a former teacher and day-care worker, and has served as a delegate to three Democratic-Farm Labor Conventions, and also served as a delegate to the International Women's Year Conference in Houston. Recommendations should be sent to: Ms. Joan Rattery White House Conference on Families Department of Health, Education, and Welfare, Room 541F Hubert Humphrey Building Washington, D.C. HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS VOTE BRYANT, HITLER "PEOPLE WHO HAVE DONE MOST DAMAGE IN WORLD" The Ladies Home Journal asked 800 junior and senior high school students to name the man and woman who "have done the most damage in the world." The majority chose Adolf Hitler and Anita Bryant. Bryant, along with Richard Nixon, also won out in response to the question, "Who makes you angriest?" Asked "If you could give a prize for achievement in re ligion, to which famous person would you give the prize?", the young people named Billy Graham their first choice, while God was their second. What has been termed "the nation's first in-depth survey of an urban gay population, aimed at finding out more than 'bedroom behavior'" is underway in Seattle. Washington Public Information Research Group (WashPIRG), a university of Washington research group sponsored by the Associated Students of the University, has mailed 10,000 questionaires containing 100 items asking for information about everything from voting habits to parenting and marital status. WashPIRG is also mailing a different questionaire to a random sampling of 900 business people, industries, physicians, employment agencies and others who might be dealing with gay people as employees or tenants, in order to find out what the impact of the city's gay rights ordinance is. A third survey is designed to measure gay rights enforcement practices in the approximately 40 cities and counties in the U.S. that have such laws. Responses to the surveys should be available to the media by October. EARTHA KITT DENOUNCES ANITA According to United Press International, entertainer Eartha Kitt has denounced Anita Bryant's anti-homosexual crusade as "dangerous to this country." The news service reported that Kitt told a reporters" conference: "I think that her attitude for America is a very dangerous one. Oppression of any kind is dangerous to this country. As long as we allow this kind of oppression to go on, we are not fulfilling what this country means. That is the main issue: human rights." The news conference was reportedly sponsored by the Gertrude Stein Democratic Club, for which Miss Kitt gave a benefit performance, EDITOR IN VIRGINIA PRINTS RAPE VICTIMS' NAMES One of the more controversial stances in recent times is Herman J. Obermayer's decision, as editor and publisher of the Northern Virginia Sun, to publish names, ages and addresses of women who are rape victims. Obermayer's position, printed in The Bulletin, which is the journal of the American Society of Newspaper Editors, as well as in his own newpaper, is that "protecting the accuser's anonymity, while fully identifying the accused, is tantamount to a pre-trial presumption of guilt." In response to critics who say that it is cruel and harsh to impose additional pains on innocent victims of crimes, Obermayer replies, "Justice is cruel and harsh. A man convicted of rape can go to jail for life." Obermayer cites the Supreme Court's decision in Cohn. vs. Cox, which protected the right of the press to print names, even in rape cases. Attorney Alan Schlosser of the San Francisco American Civil Liberties Union acknowledges Obermayer's right under the First Amendment, but adds that having the right to do something and deciding whether or not it should be done are two different things. more news briefs page 10 WOMEN/SPACE is a counseling and information, center for the women of Austin.
