Transcript Queens Afloat Through Caribbean SEPT. 8, New Orleans For a number of years a rather straight looking NewOrleanianhas been organizing tours of MIXED groups of vacationers. This year he organized a gay cruise for 42 voyagers, mostly from New Orleans, with a few from other places including Alabama, Georgia, Texas, Mississippi, and California to cruise the Caribbean for a one week cruise on a ship of the Norwegian Caribbean Line out of Miami. Most of the group flew as a group together between New Orleans and Miami and return. A number of ships sail the Caribbean out of Miami and some of this fleet of ships heard, falsely through radio operator gossip that the M.S. SKYWARD was completely hired by a gay group. Later, the truth prevailed that only about half of a deck of cabins was occupied by gays. Nevertheless, word reached straight port side authorities that the M.S. SKYWARD swished in at 1:30 p.m. on one of its ports of call, San Juan, Puerto Rico. The cruise was only one week, and the cruisers all gave marvellous reports. All that this reporter interviewed were enthusiastic about booking another cruise next year. A few wanted to change cabin mates, for their next cruise. All but a few of these 42 had not been on previous cruises before, and were happy in their bliss. They did not know that this cruise was not a real luxury first class ship of the principle steam-ship lines. It has the accomodations of something between tourist and cabin classes and is for sure for the masses. The ship is neat, clean attractive, and new, and led the group to believe they were basking in luxury. The passenger compliment / crew was 700pax. 300 crew, 16,000 tons. For example, the CAROLINA of Cunard Line with which your reporter is familiar, was 37,000 tons and carried 500 pax, 750 crew with first class features unheard of in such a tiny ship with such a crowded passenger complement in ratio to crew and size. A gay New Orleans restaurant- eur and his friend were among the group, and invited about half of the persons in the group to champagne sailing party. You can be sure that some of the group turned out for the costume party. One of the fellows went as Mae West in High, high formal drag of silver lame. She caused flash bulbs to go off when "she" danced with one of the fellows who happens to live in Houston and New Orleans. Three of the group were female, 1 gay, 1 fruit fly, and 1 fag hag. Next year the fruit fly wants to room with one of the fellows. The group seemed to be too occupied having a good time to become preoccupied with sex. Performs at Dallas Landing NEW VENTURE FOR BONA VENTURE The Mark Twain in Dallas, has parted with Billy Seales who managed the club before and from its opening date and brought in as his replacement,Bob Bonaventure. Bob once before worked for Fra. k Caven, the owner of this club, but in another capacoty. Bob's new position as Mark Twain's new manager is hardly noticeable to the untrained eye., as it is Bob's attitude to be unimposing and very quiet about his role. Bob's experience in the bar business, according to Caven, is quite diverse and so far, said the owner, Bob's performance has been more than satisfactory.
