Transcript who would be affronted or alarmed by such acts." (The constitutionality of this section is currently under contention. Basically, the argument is based on, "If you don't want to see something, don't look.) Section 1321: Loitering. "A person is guilty of loitering when he remains in a public place for the purpose of soliciting sexual relations or for the purpose of soliciting sexual relations for money and/or other funds." Though the change in Delaware Law would not have been possible without the aid of many people, including our heterosexual brothers and sisters, plaudits are especially deserved by Human Enlightenment, Inc. of Delaware (P. O. Box 863, Wilmington, Del. 19899). H.E.'s current legal activity includes filing a class action suit against the Federal Government claiming a tax exempt status as a nonpolitical, nonprofitorgan- ization. We as citizens, taxpayers and also human beings remain here in Texas (with her antiquated laws). There is reason to believe that actions by some of our State Gay Organizations are acting for the benefit of changes. The NUNTIUS has endeavered to keep abreast with the actions of these organizations and their progress but without their corporation and being a one-man-staff makes it even more difficult. Harry of D. ON THE SOAPBOX Left- Prejudice / Discrimination Among Gays TTanHa-pH by "Maude" Childers It's true! Gays are prejudiced, and they discriminate among themselves, and they aren't "camping" when they do. It's one thing to be attacked by the "anti-Gay" heterosexuals; but to be attacked by your own brothers and sisters -- well -- a stab in the back couldn't be much worse. How do Gays discriminate because of prejudice? I'm a member of MCC. I love my Church and my religion. I also love the bars, and, yes Virginia, even the baths. Contary to widespread belief —MCC doesn't preach hellfire and damnation; nor do we attack or condemn the bars or the baths; and yet, as an active member in MCC, I go into the bars wearing my cross . . . and then the feeling of love and acceptance surrounds me . . . "Well, have you convinced God that He's Gay yet?" "Hey man, don't you KNOW that you can't be Christian and Gay?" What is MCC — just a bunch of queens playing Church?" "You mean you actually drink smoke, have sex, and still go to Church?" In some bars, we, as members and friends of MCC usually get preached at and condemned for what we believe. We believe in total love, not just partial love. We love the mental, physical, and spiritual aspects of each individual We are not criticised because we can love each other mentally and physically, but because we can love each other spiritually as well. We love, regardless of race, color, sexual preference, religious affiliation (if any), or regardless if you care to smoke, drink, or how you relate sexually. We are not prejudiced at MCC. We don't walk into the bars or baths with a "holier than thou" attitude; and yet, some people, when they discover that we are from MCC, automatically assume we have a "holier than thou" attitude. When delivering our Church paper, "The Channel", a friendly bartender gave us the usual interrogation as to how we could possibly be Christian and Gay. Then after the discussion had everybody's attention --the stage was set, the lights went on us, and the resident bar personality walked up to me, carressed my leg, and said: "Let's go home a bit off the wall Ghost of a Chance is witty, clever sex romp Jaguar Productions' latest release. A Ghost of a Chance, is a witty film that uses an ingenious plot to sock across its sizzling sex interludes. There are plenty of laughs, too. The cast, which holds nothing back in the bare flesh department. is divided between long and languid types and the decidely humpy. The photography of Barry Knight is splendid, and the cockeyed script of Gorton Hall is bouncy. Once again, filmmakers are intent on creating a work where sex is part of the whole scene, not just an isolated moment. The more this trend continues, the faster the ripoff artists in the gay flick market will disappear. Knight knows what he's doing, and he has a tine sense of erotic design combined with technical know-how. Two scenes in Ghost are outstanding. There's a fantasy romp in a greeny bower that could be out of Fellini or Zeffirelli. The lovers (Roy Clark and Toby Willis) make out handsomely whiie the camera roams around the foliage like a Peeping Tom. And there's an all- white segment with Tom Winston' and Ralph Martin writhing and slurping on two enormous snow pillows. Knight's trademark of using the overhead shot when the body steam begins to rise is sexciting as all hell. This time out, the prolific Hall has come up with a Blithe Spirit type of yarn. Glen Brock loses a lover in a car accident. Not for too long, however. Couple of years later the astral dude returns to bug his earthly ex-partner. At times, we're never quite certain whether we're watching the ghost in action or someone who looks like the horny ectoplasm. The device makes Way for some amusing moments: Jimmy Hughes looking in the kitchen while his Page 10 LANGUID AND HUMPY. Principal' Brock, Jimmy Hughes, Toby Willis, lover is getting royally rimmed by the invisible man. and another scene where Hughes gets generously goosed by the ghost. The ending is an amicable twist. The film is sophisticated in what it's saying. The script gives out a nice little message about common sense in sexual matters. Anyone who sees the film is likely to feel pretty good about the value of honest sex. As usual, Hall drops in a dramatic moment. Gena Powers has a fine Photo by Scottt Fo> ) in Barry Knight's latest romp, Ghost of a Chance, are (from left) Glen and Roy Clark. Gorton Hall wrote the ghostly comedy. scene as a mother about to marry again and worried about her son's reaction. Musical background is soft and in mood. This deserves applause. So many rotten gay flicks are backed by soundtracks that have about as much relationship to the action as a duck's quack has to a Gershwin score. Ex-Groovy Guy Hughes is the star as far as body pulp goes. He's worth looking at when he's standing around or screwing up a storm, but he reads dialogue like a ventriloquist's dummy. Since he's got quite a film career going, he ought to polish up his acting style. The rest of the cast perform well enough, but the film belongs to Knight and Hall. Even the special effects are mischievous. End result is an engaging 105 minutes mixing sex and fun in a diverting, entertaining fashion. J. Moriarty NEW YORK CITY-With five original songs in its heart (pop- rock) and good color shots of New York City and Woodstock (not the concert, the. area around there), Left-Handed gets a bit of story and feeling into its fuck-fest. We follow Ray (Ray Frank), a hip hep-cat, as he hops about the Village in his faded blue denim and into the tearoom off Bank Street. The tearoom scene has the usual sex but also a humorous tinkly sound track, realistic fumbling actions, and an antic, ner-. vous camera catching the graffiti on the walls. Ray, nervous, successful, but ever-hungry, visits his ff*end, an antique-cum-head-shbpi«*>*j^»er, Larry (Larry Burns). Larry is'j^st, getting six bricks of tea from rjis" dealer, an innocent country boy, Bob (Robert Rikas). Bob is a nice hop-headed guy with a chick. Q u adrangle! The two gay friends, the tea-dealer, and his chick. There's material here for sex and scenics. The obligatory sex looks like sex in most sex flicks. But the New York scenes and the Woodstock locales have real feeling, depth, and the sort of handling we're used to outside of sex films. The slight story—consisting of our watching (hearing) Ray's *'4eft-handedness" ^(deviousness) via phone calls to his old antique shop friend-lead us on. The ending, is lyrical, expected, not melodramatic. \ Gay flicks are beginning to grow up. Wasn't it only yesterday that Gays* paid $5 to watch .some guy stripping and taking a shower? The two gay guys are handsome and as 'dignified as characters in a Dostoyevski novel. The five songs are OK, but just OK. Best effects: Strauss music during one make-out scene and the tinkle-stuff during the tearoom sequence. Music is by Stan Finkelstein and Jviehard London. Producer-directors Jack Deveau and Jaap Penraat have given us the first realistic. New York atmosphere this veteran reviewer has seen in a male skin flick. ;' this reviewer by accident met Larry Burns in the. street the next day. He said all the actors used their real names. The times they are archangtng! For the better. Leo Skir
