Transcript and ball". I can dig honesty; however, I deplore mockery. Isaid "No." "Oh, but", he replied, - "Don't you love me?" I told him: "I don't even know you." "Oh, but don't you love me as a human being?" To which I replied: "yes, I do." "Then why can't we go home and ball?" Well, all I could tell him was: "There isn't really anything that I could say that you want to hear, but I still love you as a human being." Other people inMCC couldprob- ably tell you how they have been "tested", ridiculed, or mocked. I feel it's a shame that our brothers and sisters can't accept us as we are. I know fully well what it feels like to be in the minority — maybe MCC members are really in the minority. But I know what's right for the majority hasn't always been right for me. I'm Gay, Proud, Healthy, and Christian; and, if that's Queer — yes, I certainly am! Bar owners and those who support MCC regardless if they attend, know that I'm not preaching to them. I'm not treated like an outcast in every Gay establishment. Maybe someday soon, things will be different. After we removed the prejudice and discrimination out of the remaining heterosexual bigots, then we can rid the same among ourselves. You still don't believe it exists? What about the Gay Pride Parade? I marched proudly with my "I'm not Prejudiced, I like Heterosexuals''. Why did I do it? Because I believe in Gay Liberation. MCC does too! We voted in a Congregational meeting to again participate in the parade. Did our brothers and sisters congratulate us because we dared to march? I'm not talking about MCC involvement. I'm referring to ANYONE who had the courage to stand up and say: "yes, I'm Gay and Proud?" Well some of my best friends have stabbed me in the back because of it. I guess they were afraid that Liberation rubs off; and they couldn't afford to be liberated —because of their job, family, etc. Well the Pioneers of any Liberation movement are usually told to "shut up and Don't Get Involved". It would be easier for me to go straight and become an Atheist. OK, for some that's what's right for them — but it's not right for me. Rev. Perry tells us that MCC will not be destroyed by the Foxes that Breed Discontent in the Gay community; it can only happen inside the Church . . . among ourselves. Well, I believe that. But I also believe that the Gay community can never be destroyed by the Heterosexual community; but we can destroy each other among ourselves. The theme of the Gay Pride Parade last year was: "United We Stand, Divided We Fall" -- and I'll say amen to that. LETTERS TO THE EDITOR ICensored Dear Sirs, I am a Senior in high school in a small town in Iowa, and I need help. 1. How do you make your parents realize that being gay is not a sickness, evil or anything wring? 2. How can I meet a guy who is not interested in only a one night stand? 3. How can I develope a lasting relationship with a guy as an equal friend? 4. How can I protect myself from vd/ 5. How can I stay away from a carrier or sadist? I want to meet a guy who is not interested in only himself. Can you help me? J.G. (This is an actual letter addressed to Our Community. I've answered the yough as best I could, but I thought you readers might be interested in knowing there are many young people searching for answers that older gays have sought all their lives, sometimes in vain.) Phil Dear Sir, Recently I experenced a rude, uncalled for, brutal mishap at Dallas' so-called formostgay club. If I may I would like to relate this story to you and your readers in the interest that we may change this situation so it won't occur to anyone again. One recent Saturday evening six of us planned on going to the Bayou Landing. Before __,oing we stopped off at a newly opened club. At the new club we had an enjoyable time and were surprised at the large crowd in attendance. After an hour or so we departed for the Bayou Landing. As we were entering the Landing the cashier at the door asked us if we had been to the new bar. We said we had and he asked how their business was. At this point I jokingly said they were doing great, they '11 probably put the Bayou out of business."Everyonerealized I was joking and laughed, including another Bayou employee, but the obese cashier didn't laugh and in his rude manner remarked, "If I wanted shit from you I'd scrape it from your teeth." It seems to me he should have realized if I had licked the new bar so well I wouldn't come to the Landing to spend my money, but unfortunately he does not have that forsight. Anyway, as I protested his vulgar remark he said the door at "his" club swings both ways and to get out. He gave me I my money back along with my | friends' money. He said ''he" didn't need our business. However two of my friends had gone into the crowd and it took a few minutes for another friend to find them. Meanwhile I waited outside. As I was standing outside the door was standing outside the door waiting for my friends, this crude, disordered cashier charged out the door with a night-stick after me. He screamed he wanted us away from "his" club at once and rammed the stick in my side. At that time my friends came out the door and we departed. To me, personally, this was the most uncalled for mishap I've ever experienced at any gay club. I cannot justify the action of the Bayou Landing in their arrogant nature. Don't they realize it is our money that keeps them in business? Do they really believe they are doing us a favor by taking our money? If so, I disagree. They may not want my money but my feelings are they don't deserve it. Just because they are the largest gay bar in town doesn't mean they have to act as though they're the only one. Thank you for your time. Sincerely, Jerry Edwards Garland, Texas Dear Jerry, Letters of this nature are in a way good to have but for the bars and their owners to permit employeed personnel to act this way is unheard of. I would hate to be the one that did it when the owner, Mr. Sisk reads this. Phil, MINI PARK REMODELING t jua«aaa«aa.ir.*» Page 11
