Transcript r GAY PRIDE PARADE ' IN '74? Will there be a Gay Pride Parade next year? Yes. But probably not in Dallas. Chris McKee. able organizer and tireless worker of the first two Gay Pride Parades has said that she will not head a parade committee for 1974. The 1973 Parade was a success in every way, but she feels it was not quite as successful as the first one. Maybe some other person or organization will sponsor next year's parade. Or perhaps there is a better way to win our civil rights and acceptance (not tolerance) for the gay community. The National Gay Mobilizing Committee of Urbana, Illinois is planning a massive gay march on the Washington Convention Center in the Spring of '74, and is asking all organizations and individuals to help in this effort. Why a nation-wide march on the Capital? One piece of national legislation, can sweep aside every stat's sodomy and solicitation laws, and give full civil rights to Gays in all 50 states. Furthermore, state civil rights laws do not apply to corporations dealing in interstate commerce, nor do they even apply to the local post office. National opinion and the national news media tend to be shaped far more by national action, than by similar state, local or regional action. There are more than 400 gay organizations in the nation. But the movement needs a unifying national gay organization. NACHO failed. We were young. We learned. Perhaps this time we will win. The National Gay Mobilizing Committee is a group of Gay women and men in New York and Illinois of various political tendency's, who feel the necessity of a nation-wide organization with a national action perspective. No Gay organization is excluded from NGMC because of political orientation. Other minorities are winning their fights for acceptance. We are the second largest minority. Where do we go from here? We leave that to your own individual conscious. Musical Pastor Returns With A Gay Potpourri Al Carmines, the musical ni- nister of Off-Broadway, who turns out hits as easily as others produce flops, has another with The Faggot. Like his previous musicals, .,this ,one-a revue on the theme of homosexuality- was first seen at Carmines' Judson Memorial Church, and Carmines once again is composer. , lyricist, r WANT TO DO SOMETHING TO BETTER YOUR LIFE AND HELP YOUR GAY BROTHERS AND SISTERS AT THE SAME TIME?

Vernon 524-5612 QUALITY PRINTING author, director, and the entire orchestra (piano) for his production. This time, though, he also appears as an actor; one is hardly surprised to find that he's okay at that too. The Faggot is highly melodious, bright, and cheerful, and I think the most important theatrical offering on its topic since The Boys in the Band. As it advances thinking not acceptable to the entire citizenry, it probably must be labeled a propaganda piece. But to those who already accept that homosexuals are merely people with a different viewpoint, The Faggot is an entertainment of good heart and mind,'its message simply that homosexuals are more than a limp-wristed stereotype. In sketch and song, Carmines roams widely through the homosexual world. He visits, among other folk, a pathetically funny drag queen, a handsome young tease in a gay bar who believes his attractiveness will last forever, a man who has hidden his homosexuality for so long that he is attached to his secrecy, and Gertrude Stein and Alice B. Tok- las, who are favored with a lovely song called "Ordinary Things" that could describe any happy marriage at all. As he touches down here and there, at least 75 per cent of the time he lands on gold-and even when he doesn't there is his seemingly never- ending supply of melody and heart to warm and divert one.

You keep your feet on the ground and your head on those shoulders of yours, youngster, and Sawyer, you're going out a youngster, but you've got to come back a star!" Continued next page with photos .
