Transcript f Saturday June 24th, 1972 was a historic day for Dallas. This con­servative town had seen many parades before- -but never a parade like this one. This was the day gay citizens "kicked down the closet door and let the lavendar smoke come pouring out." The day we told the world, "We are no longer afraid." But it almost didn't happen. Two days before, a frantic Dallas City Councilman, Doug Fain, asked City Attorney Alex Bickley to rescind the Circle of Friends' parade per­mit. Most City Counce! members tJie 8{UNCJ'JUS .. VOL. 3 NO. 7 • JULY 1972 , 300 Proudly March were in agreement with Fain. But Bickley reminded them that his office had researched the law to see if there was any legal grounds on which to deny a parade permit. But it seems the Constitution grants gays the same rights to freedom of speech as it does straights. So the parade was still on! And because of the publicity given to this effort to halt the parade at the last minute, thous­ands, who otherwise might not have heard of the parade, came down­town to see what all the fuss was about. They saw plenty. There were seventeen floats and gaily decorat­ed cars. There were large banners and signs - "I'm not prejudice: I like heterosexuals," "Someone you love is gay," "This car is sponsored by professionals and others who, if they were known to be gay, would lose their jobs." The Dallas Metropolitan Commun­ity Church had an elaborate float telling the world, "9od Loves His Gay Children Too." "Gay is As American As The Flag and Apple Pie," proclaimed the beautiful Circle of Friends' float. The Gay PAR AD .,... Af Liberation of Houston's float car­ried the legend, "They gave me a medal for killing many men, and a dishonorable discharge for lov­ing one." Police Sergant J . R. Cody esti­mated the crowd at 3,000. Either he didn't bother to make an ac­curate estimate, or he tried to play down the importance of the parade. Terry of Tyler walked along the parade route while the parade was in progress. He choose not the most crowded block but a block that seemed to be about in between crowd-wise. Counting OUR -COM\'lU . NIT,Y ,,NOThfNG bUMAN ·is AlieN TO us all the people on the sunnyside of the street and doubling that mun­bel", he then multiplied that by the number' of blocks the parade cover­ed. His estimate was 14,146. The Dallas ACLU was there. Their members wore tags giving their names, identifying them as members of the ACLU and noting th~ were there as "observers." Presumably this was to see that gay citizens were not harassed by the police, or that the police would not allow paraders to be attacked by the crowd. Fortunately this was unnecess­ary. '.fhere were no arrests, nor was there any violence. And if there were any catcalls, the happy, singing, clapping marchers never heard it. The crowd reaction? Many watched in stunned silence. But most smil­ed, waved, applauded, and cheer­ed!<- Even the 25 police assigned to cover the parade seemed to have a good time. One officer was heard to remark: "I don't approve of the, but I can't see anything wrong with it." About 250 to 300 started the parade. But a funny thing happened on the way to City Hall. Many Closet Queens who were standing on the sidewalks suddenly found their guts and joined our ranks. The delegation from Houston provided live music as we march­ed and shouts of "2-4-6-8, Gay is just as good as straight" filled the air. Althouth Chris McKee, who served as parade committee chair­man, expected marchers from Houston, Ft Worth, Oklahoma City, Denton, and San Antonio, she was pleasently surprised to find that some came from as far away as Miami, New York City, New Or­leans, Atlanta, the Rio Grande Valley, and Chicago. Also interesting to note was the 'Jbany straights who joined our ranks. Originally they were to have their own platoon. But the straights insisted they wanted to march shoulder to shoulder with their gay brothers and sisters even if they might be mistaken for queers by their friends and neighbors. One more detail: At the end of the parade a poor grandmotherly type struggled to keep up with the younger crowd. She too carried a sign: "God's World Demands Legal Execution ofHomosexuals." Her name is Mrs. Addie Barlow Fratler. Many think she goes under the name Dixie Leber(Rebel spell­ed backwards). Dixie is a member of the Klu Klux Klan. The world, like the parade, left her behind. Next year the parade will be even bigger and better. Plans are already being made. Dallas ain't seen nothing, yet! GAY PRIDE RALLY held at flag Pole Hill After the parade, about 200 gay and straight friends gathered at Flag Pole Hill to enjoy sand­wiches, cokes, lemonade, andeach others company. Speeches were made by representatives of the Circle of Friends, the Nuntius­Our Community, Dallas MCC, the Purple Star Tribe, the Houston Gay Liberation Front, and anyone who had saything to say. Myke and Jo sang gay and tradi­tional folk songs and led us in "dancing-in-the-street" type dan­cing. An unmarked car with two men in it slowly made its way into our area The car stopped and took down li­cense plate numbers of cars parked there. (This writer looked in the side window and saw the numbers on the shorthand pad). The license plate number of this white car was LRF 163. There were no arrests, nor did the men speak to anyone in our crowd. (The ACLU told us this was pro­bably a police car and would check out the number, but they would pro­bably find that the car was one con­fiscated by the police, but not re­gistered to them. The takingofli­cense plate numbers was merely to feed to a computer of the National Crime Information Center (NCIC) to see if any of the cars belonged to known criminals.Since straights were at the picnic as well as gays, there is no way the Oolice could de­termine who was what. Nor did they care). A couple of years ago, the queens would have fled the scene in scr­eaming panic. But this time we just ignored them, and the happy party continued into late afternoon. .iij ~ l'.,~"' t ,..,.,. ~ -'4 . -- 11o MISS GRAND ~ MISS DALLAS ~Q BEST· COUPLE SEVEN TROPHIES BALL -~ SERIOUS PREFORM ER 1972 advance reservations & information call '***. ** *** ** RON HEMBY ~ 2, I - O " I o . ** II <J Dallas ***** JM-<tH3 *** *** *** ·*** MORE PICTURES OF PARADE & RALLY A~ ~ : ~ - I ~ • . - - I ~I j - - Ii ~~=--= Sodomy Charges RONSUE'S Jury Hails Jail, Indicts Inmates 3236 McKINNEY DALLAS, TEXAS 526-9333 • STONW ALL DIRECTOR SLAMS TIMES COLUMNIST Seattle Times Religion Editor, Ray Ruppert, was accused of fos­tering prejudice towards homosex­uals in a letter from William H. DuBay, Co-director of Stonewall, a Seattle treatment center for homosexuals. The letter referred to Ruppert's June 17 column entitled, "Seattle Churches Grapple with Role of Homosexuals." The article made extensive use of remarks made by Dr. E. Mansell Pattison, associate professor of psychiatry at the University of California at Irvine. DuBay, a former Roman Catholic Priest, charged that the article failed to represent adequately what either psychiatrist or the churches are saying about homosexuality. DuBay began, "What promised to be a review of the problems of ,-churches struggling with the fact of homosexuality turned out to be a dialogue of two Christians still parading their ignorance and superstitions regarding the subject under the guise of responsible journalism." DuBay went on to point out that nearly every major denomination is currently involved in a re­evaluation of the ancient church doctrines on personal relation­ships, sexuality, and homosex­uality. He mentioned that the United Church of Christ ordained an ad­mitted homosexual as a minister recently and that a Gay student from Seattle is studying for the Congregational ministry in the University of Chicago. "Second­ly," DuBay wrote, "the remarks of Dr. Pattison fail to reflect any of the scientific study and research done in the last 50 years" which had led "many psychiatrists to conclude that there is no connect­ion between homosexuality and mental disorder or "social dis­ability." DuBay emphasized that "one does not label the largest minor­ity in the country as 'sick,' 'dis­ablec,' or 'bizarre' without offer­ing some shred of evidence to support such an outlandish posit­ion, evidence which was entirely The April term Dallas County grand jury Friday praised the Fallas County jail and returned indictments against nine inmates for sex assults on other prisoners. "The Dallas County Jail is a facility which is well managed, well maintained and sanitary, and one which provides excellent health care and food for its inam care and food for its inmates," the jury said in its final report. Jurors toured the jail April 14. The grand jury, however, did find the jail to be overcrowded and gave its support to "any reasonable effort that can be made to alleviate jail overcrowding." lacking in your article. "The attitudes towards homo­sexuality expressed in your article are the same attitudes responsible for the burnings, castrations, mur­ders, trials, torturings exiles firings, suicides, and m;ntal dis~ abilities of homosexuals that have filled the pages of Christian history. "As one professionally involved with the mental and emotional health of homosexual persons, I have to indict you for the per­petuation of those attitudes,'' Du­Bay concluded. DuBay's letter came on the heel of another action against the Times by Rev. Robert Sirico, pastor of the Metropolitan Community Church, which accepts homosex­uality. Rev. Sirco led a demon­stration against the Times last week for refusing to run an ad for the church in the religion section on the grounds that the words "Gay" and "homosexual" were not suitable for printing. The picket­ing of the homes of Times offic­ials was scheduled as a contin­uation of the protest this week. ~ 9 C) 7 · -'1 u in S t 5 2 8 5 8 8 l "If the jail yopulation can be lowered to its designed maximum, then ideal procedures can be utiliz - ed, such as separating first off­enders from hardened criminals and homosexuals from all other prisoners," the report said. prisoners,' ' the report said. The county is under federal court order to reduce overcrowding and improve the jail. The nine sodomy indictments stem from three cases involving older inmates who forced prison­ers aged 17, 18 and 20, toperform unnatural sex acts.

Midnight Show Friday And Saturday , ' t' ' 'f I' I l - \ 1 f FIRST NATIONAL GAY ACTION The first national Gay action is about to happen. This will be the final mailing of N.C.G.0.-Cam­paigr, '72. Please read it care­fully and pass the information on to as many Gays in your area as poss­ible. Things are happening fast and changes occur every day in the details of what will be happening at the Convention site. You may call us anytime (collect) at the N .C.G.O. headquarters in Washington at (202) 462-8729 for current infor­mation and to keep us informed of your plans so that we can maintain a nation-wide picture of how things are shaping up. I As you no doubt are already a-ware, the Democratic National Pl­atform Committee meeting in Wa­shington, D. C. this week finally adopted the N.C.G.O. platform on Gay Rights as a minority report. In addition the Majority Platform includes one sentence which is un­acceptable, really, but is a victory nonotheless which declares some support of homosexual rights, but without mentioning the word. It deals with freedom of Americans "to make their own choice of life styles and private habits". The minority report, however, is very strong. It is the platform written by the N.C.G.O. convention in Chi­cago last February. Perhaps some of you can fathom the significance of this move on the national scene. Many of you may not. It all was made possible be­cause you and your organization has successfully changed the mood of the American public toward homosexual rights. You may not think that theworkyouhaveputinto Gay liberation has had much effect, but if you even only once stood up and demanded your human and con­stitutional rights as Gay po stitutional rights as Gay people in the public eye, you have made an impact. That impact was borne out by the reception we met during the last four days at the Platform meetings of the Democratic party which culminated in our issue being adopted this morning (June 27, 1972). ant victory goes to the members of the N.C.G.O. coordinating commit­tee here in D. C. who worked 20 hours a day (literally) for four days with the delegates of the Platform Committee using every conceiv­able means to convince them to vote our issue into the Platform. It was beaten ·down four times with as many revisions until the entire plank was proposed as a minority report and passed easily. (75% of the people voting voted YES). These people to whom we owe so much are Steve Mann (East Lans­ing), Alan Vick(Wash. D.C.), Ernie Reaugh (Albany), and Ron Cafiero Frank Kameny, and Steve Warner. It is extremely important to note that, in the face of an about-face on the part of theMcGovernpeople at the last minute (the McGovern forces were getting cold feet after the current trashing of the party on the Gay Rights issue), the vote to include the N.C.G.O. platform in the majority platform resulted in defeat, 54-34. A shift of eleven votes would have given it to us. The strongest support came from the Youth, the Blacks, theSpanish­speaking, ALL THE WALLACE PEOPLE, the Humphrey people, and the Chisolm people, and about half of the McGovern people. WHAT DOES THIS MEAN? It means that the lobbying effort now falls upon your shoulders. It means that we stand an excellent( chance of getting it adopted into the Majority platform on the conven­tion floor in Miami Beach, BUT YOU MUST BE IN MAIAMI BEACH TO LOBBY DAY ANDNIGHTWITH THE DELEGATES TO THE CON­VENTION. Gay Rights will now be brought to the floor for the first time in history for debate by a major national political party. Can we get it adopted? IT IS UP TO YOU. ONLY YOU AND YOUR GROUP CAN CONVINCE THE DE­LEGATES TO ADOPT THE GAY PLANK. YOU MUST ORGANIZE GAYS FOR MIAMI BEACH AND GET THEM THERE. THE BUS AND AUTO CARAVANSCHEDULE IS IN YOUR HANDS.

He says he is undergoing hor­mone treatments for a pending sex change operation and wants to be Gerald Flatten, assistant dis-trict attorney, said the charge was dismissed because the city ordi-nance under which Mayes was charged has been replaced with a new ordinance.

No. of 'Mockingbird cm Preston Rd.) 1 s a ~y le :h 1- ,r •s MOTORCYCLE GANG INV ADES QUEEN'S POINT - Dallas Police Refuse Help Nobody wanted the beach. It was not particularly scenic, it was difficult to find and almost impos­sible to get to. So the gays claimed it and named it Queen's Point. Gay men and women had been gathering there on weekends foralmostade­cade. Then at 5:20, Sunday June 4th, all hell broke lose. It started when a­bout 20 to 30 members of the mo­torcycle gang. The Paisanos sud­denly appeared at the entrance of Queen's Point. Obscenities were hurled: faggots, cocksuckers! One man unbuttoned his pants, took out his cock, pissed and yelled to the startled gay men and women who had been swimming,sunbathing,and picnicing. "Sure would like for some queer to lick the head of my dick for a­bout an hour". The Paisanos were "flying their colors" - a rectangular black patch with red lettering and yellow trim on the back of sleeveless denim shirts. The startled gays were unpre­pared for a fight and were defense­less. Most quickly took down their tents, jumped into their cars and fled. When about half the crowd had left, the Paisanos moved onto the beach telling everyone to get their fucking asses off the beach and never come back. They hit some of the guys with belts and kicked a few butts. One motorcyc­list pulled a knife, but no one was seriously injured. As the cars were leaving the area, motorcyclists lined both sides of the dirt road and hit the passing cars with their belt buck­les. Some windowglass was smash­ed. Upholstry was slashed with knifes in two cars, and a small Honda stationwagon had the wiring torn out so that it could not be mov­ed. The trunk lid of another car was almost torn off. One man attempted to stop the gay flight by parking his car across the road and urging gays to stand and fight. His efforts were in vain. A Lincoln-Coitinental tried to quickly leave the area, but was har­rassed by a gang member who swerved in and outofthepathofthe car. The driver, trying to miss the motorcyclist but unable to do so, ran over the cycle and the rider suffered two broken ribs and a con­cussion. b backing up,the Lincoln­Continental backed into a fence post and smashed in the rear of his car. The motorcyclist was taken to a hospital, but refused to press ch­arges. Several gays appealed for help to the Denton Police officer whose squad car was parked at the en­trance to the Point. The officer be-job. Get your ass out of here". Many gays heard this remark. La­ter two Denton officers were seen drinking beer with a couple of the gang members. Seeing they could get no help from the Denton County police, the State Police were called, but they too refused to do anything for the gays being attacked on the Point. Later that afternoon, some of the gays asked Dennis Sisk, the owner of Dallas' largest gay bar The Bayou Landing if he would help them organize, so that the following Sunday, gays could retake their beach. Battle plans were ma­de. In the meantime, Bob Jones of the Dallas Free Church met with the leader of the Paisanos and got his consent that the motorcycle gang would not return to the beach. To make sure there would be no confrontation the following Sunday, the motorcycle gang organized a run to Lake Texoma, and later a party was held for them at their favorite hangout The Bussler. Three Sundays have passed since that event and there has been no more trouble. Peace has returned to Queen's Point. If you were not at Margaret's party at Queen's Point, you missed something. The place was packed. Gay people have been gathering on this tiny, sandy, peninsula on warm weekends for almost a decade. But this time it was different. It was the end of GAY PRIDE WEEK andt'V's Bar treated the crowd to free Texas size hot dogs and beer. We rompedinthewater,sunbath­ed drank beer, and camped. Many wore "Gay is Good", and "Out of the Closets Into the Streets" but­tons. The crowd talked enthusiastic­ally about the success of the parade and everyone anticipated a much larger parade next year. Many said they were afraid to join the parade this year, but would never be afraid again. It was a good thing to say, be­cause at that moment two police cars entered the point. One was a Denton County Sheriff car, the other was the Lake Dallas Police car. No arrests were made, nor did anyone run. Asagoodwillges­ture, some wanted to offer the pol­ice a hot dog and beer, but before we could get them ready, the police cars drove away. The gay community owe's Mar­garet a special "thanks" for the time, money, and effort she spent in our behalf. came angry and yelled at them. Yes this wasahistoricweekend- "Don't you tell me how to run my a time when gays came together. SABRA' GARTH FORM, FACE AHO FIGURE SUPPORT THE GAY COMMUNITY BUY GAY "Just A Minute" 2319 So.

San Carlos, California -- A former Houston paper boy has made world-wide church history by becoming the first known homo­sexual ordained to the ministry by a major r eligious group. William Reagan Johnson, 26, was ordained by the Golden Gate Assn. of the United Church of Christ (UCC) on the 15th anniversary of the two- million member denom­ination. The ordination took place Sunday night in the Community United Church of Christ in San Carlos, twenty miles south of_ San F ran­cisco. Among the 150 in attendance were the Rev. Mr. Johnson's mother, Mrs. Minnie Johnson, and his twin brother, Wayne Johnson, from Houston. As a youth in Houston's Ease End, Bill Johnson attended Hender­son Elementary School and Jackson Junior High and graduated in the top quarter of the class of 1964 at Stephen F . Austin Senior High. In high school, he was president of the Youth Fellowship at First Evangelical Church and president of the Christian Youth Council of Houston. He delivered The Chronicle throughout his junior and senior high school years. After winning the Stephen F . Austin Senior High PTA scholar- In the last issue of the NUNTIUS we ran an article "Gay Prisoner Seeks Letters." We gave the name and address of Alvin Buchanan along with his number. There were letters writ­ten but returned by the Texas Prison system stating that the letters were not received from persons on the approved list for the captioned inmate to receive correspondence from. This ends the gay community's effort to help keep our friends ship at his high school graduat­ion (given annually to a graduate whose life execmplifies strong character and commitment), John­son graduated from Elmhurst Col­lege in Elmhurst, Ill., and Pacific School of Religion in Berkley, Cal. For the summer (1964-1966) he worked for Cameron Iron Works, Inc., in Houston. Johnson's ordination service in­cluded a modern dance interpert­ation of "Bridge Over Troubled Waters," the presentation of a cream-colored rose and gold butterfly-designed stole symboliz­ing the resurrection, and the whole congregation sharing in the laying­on- of- hands, the official act which "Thank yo~!"

Reference to Johnson's homo­sexuality was made by the Rev. William Eichhorn in his charge to the new minister. "In being honest, you have chosen authenticity," he said " and risked sharing yourself with the rest of us. That risk is not only liberating you, it is liberating many of us as well." Johnson is now serving with the Tentmaker Ministry in Southern California. A Hollywood bank teller by day, he spends evenings and weekends helping to establish new religious communities among those disillusioned by the church.

GADFL.Y I claim to be no expert on trends Specifically, trends in the publicat­ion of periodicals. More specific­ally in the publication of summer issues, e.g. June-July or July­August. Most specifically, the in­sertion of items, merely for the record, in such summer issues. But I do have several suspicions. The first rather resembles a con­viction. It is this: that summertime issues are not read with a high degree of avidity. My second suspicion is com­pletely dependent upon the first. Quite conceivably, editors approve for publication in summertime issues items that deserve to get in print, if only "for the record." They may or may not be con­troversial. They may or may not be newsworthy. But, at least, due note has been taken of them. And if, at some future date, they happen to catch the eye of a more careful and critical reader, they can be shrugged off as beirlg no longer relevant. My third suspicion is much more certain than the other two. Also, * * * them. It is this: that what I say will be ignored. And precisely by those people who should call for action. For too long have they suffered an indignity to their physical person, a degree of dis­ruption in the ordering of their leisure, and an unconscionable strain upon their finances. Specifically, I should, if for nothing else but the record, like to demand, in the July issue of NUNTIUS, that Houston's only gay movie theatre exercise itself in some self-improvement. And I have already suggested three dis­tinct areas in which this self­improvement might be ac­complished. First, respect for the physical persons of the patrons. One should not have to squirm his way into his seat, only to entertain the possibility that said seat might soon collapse forward on the floor together with its cash customer. Secondly, there is a courtesy to which all cinemeddicts have grown accustomed and which here is honored by the breach rather than in the observance. It just may be that certain patrons are interested only in viewing the interested only in viewing the feature and not in sitting through a series of featurettes. So why not a schedule of showings in the morn­ing Post ad? Surely the celluloid * does not so frequently sizzle or come apart as to render such a schedule ridiculous! Finally, there is the most im­portant item of all: the utterly outlandish price of admission. So far as I can recall, only one explanation has ever been offered for the high cost of the movie ticket at such a theatre. Owing to the nature of the material being shown, there was the everpresent possibility of court cases and con­sequent legal fees. So the manage­ment had to fortify itself with a fat roll of bills. But that was several years ago. Now, "every­thing goes"--except the uniform high price of admission, week- [p)£[!Jl£~* 2609 N. PEARL (off CEDAR SPRINGS) 742-3269 day matinees included. Now, I am not so naive as to suppose that my demands will be met. As I have already suggested, what I have written is merely for the record. Since we enjoy freedom of speech, someone should speak out. And since there is freedom of the press, what he has written deserves to be recorded. But may I confess in conclusion to a degree of misgiving? If my demands are not met, may it not be owing--at least in some degree --to the fact that many more of us feel we have "never had it so good." And so, " why rock the boat?"

Broshears, a G.A.A. member shocked, however, and many called of the parade organizing com- him a "facist pig." mittee, argued loudly with the Afterwards, one of the San Jose women that the sign they were carrying ("Off Prick Power") was obscene and that they would not be permitted to carry it in the parade. After verbal altercation, the women walked away. Later, as the women were stand­ing on the sidewalk deciding what to do, Broshears and the grey­suited man came up to them and warned them not to carry their sign in the parade. When they attempted to discuss the matter, the two men grabbed the sign and tore it to shreds, shoving one of the women in the process. Bro­shears then called over four policemen who confirmed his opinion on the sign's obscenity and told the women they would not be permitted to carry the sign. One of the women reported that the grey-suited man told her that his briefcase contained a knife which he was prepared to use on trouble­makers if necessary. The women did later make a second sign on their own which they carried in the parade. The second incident occurred on the steps of City Hall after the parade, when dignitaries were being introduced and awards given out. One of the lesbians, Chris Nunez, attempted to gain access to the microphone to ask why the women had been shoved pre­viously. She was prevented access by Broshears in spite of demands by many in the crowd that she be permitted to speak. After the completion of the cere­monies, Broshears was approach­ed by several of the San Jose women who wanted to discuss the question of their treatment. Brashears at­tempted to evade the questioning by leaving the area. But a large crowd had pressed around to sec what was happening thus hinder­ing his departure. To the Gay Sunshine reporter who witnessed this incident Broshears appeared extremely agitated. He shouted stridently that the women had not participated in the planning stages of the parade and knew nothing of the rules laid down. Suddenly, without provocation he sprang himself forward, launching himself bodily into the midst of the women, striking out furiously in all directions. women was quoted as saying that "we only came up here to develop some solidarity with our gay brothers." Asked if the parade seemed male-dominated, one woman replied, "Oh God, is it ever!'' The Gay Sunshine Collective, which editorially criticized the parade as sexist and male­chauvinist in our June issue, bas issued the following statement: "Never has the distance between the so-called leadershlp of the Bay Area gay movement and the rank and file been more apparent than in this incident. The male chauv­inism demonstrated by the parade organizers and by many partici­pants is too obvious to require detailed analysis. We are disgusted by the Rev. Broshears' conduct and would remind him that all the parades in the world will produce no sexual liberation as long as men persist in this sort of be­havior toward women. We have long believed that the parade was dominated by a bankrupt "leader­shlp" thoroughly out of touch with its constituency. This physical as­sault on gay women confirms our opinion. Broshears reminds us of a character in Oscar Wilde's play Lady Windermere's Fan, of whom another character remarks, 'He thinks like a Tory and talks like a Radical, and that's so important nowadays.' " We call upon the sponsoring organizations to repudiate Bro­shears' sexist behavior (as well as to examine their own behavior toward women) and to issue an immediate apology to the San Jose women. We also call upon our gay women and men to stop ac­quiescing in the state of affairs which presently exists in the Bay Area gay liberation struggle. If Area gay liberation struggle. If we continue to remain passive, we deserve to be under the leadershlp of this bunch of male- chauvinist Machiavellians with their paper organizations and authoritarian neuroses.'' j Mr. Friz/Jy 3401 Milam at Francis -entrance on Francis Membership $2. per year Visits- Tuesday - Wednpr,.,.v & Thursday - $3.00 Friday Saturday & Sunday Visits $5.00 ~ PRIVATE BATH CLUB ~ OPEN 24 hrs.

Those who marched in the parade didn't have anything to lose." This statement was made by a gay bar owner in Dallas following Dallas' first GAY PRIDE PARADE. The people who had the courage to march down Main Street last June 24th laid their jobs on the line. People marched who had worked years building a career. They marched so that gy They marched so that gay people could gain their legal and moral rights, and hold their heads up rights, and hold their heads up with dignity. And yet this bar owner claims she had more to lose. "I'm afraid to have the name of my bar in the parade because straight people might come in my place and tear it up." The Parade Chair­man suggested to the bar owner that she need not have the name of her bar in the parade if she did not wish, but she need only support the rights of gay people by participating in the parade. The bar owner refused. 528-9552 I O,t■ DIiiy 10.■ I p 1504 Westheimer KEG PARTY SUNDAYS 5-7 ($1.00) One of the marchers had this to say, "I can't find it in my­self to support those who will not support our community. Those who make their living from us should support the community- ----other­wide they are exploiting us ." One of the patrons of the bar remarked, "('ve been to her bar for the last time." And someone who over­heard said, ":fhat goes for me too. We had as much to lose as she did----our jobs and our homes were at stake." The long struggle to gain civil moral, and legal rights for the gay community must be fought by all gay citizens in whatever way they can. Those who can march, time, money, or talents, should do so.

Houston Gay Liberation fo\G HOUSTON GAY LIB VISITS PERKINS After the picnic at Flag Pole Hill, White Rock Lake Park, Dallas on Saturday, June 24, I visited Per­kins School of Theology on the Southern Methodist University campus. I am a former Perkins student, having withdrawn from the seminary in 1968. I wore my Gay Liberation T­shirt and carried several copies of the NUNTIUS with me. I spoke with two Perkins students and one Perkins professor. All of them were aware that we had held a Gay Pride Parade downtown that morning. The Perkins professor with whom I visited had just re­turned to the Perkins faculty from three years with the University of Chicago faculty . He is a former systematic theology professor of mine, Dr. Shubert Ogden. Mr. Odgen asked me if I had talked· to Gene Leggett, and I told him, yes, I had. Ogden seemed glad to see me. He was genial and friendly. I gave him a hug with one arm as we left. I also stopped by Highland Park United Methodist Chur ch, whose 9,000-member congregation is the largest in United Methodism. Pul-ling off a gentle "zap," I neatly folded a June issueofthe NUNTIUS so that the editorial on page 12 showed up clearly, with the head­line "Methodists Anti-Gay, Anti­Sex" and inserted this gentle re­minder on the edge of the pulpit of the church, with the hope that the preacher would see it and read it on Sunday morning. by Wade Frey RONSUE'S is Proud to Present - MR.

Entrap­ment is the name of the game that is played by this group of law enforcement agents. It seems that they travel in ones and twos enticeing visitors to the park into compromising situations. One or two will go into the "bushes" after having attract­ed some unsuspecting individual and made overtures so that they are followed. If alone, the other officer is somewhere hiding where he can witness what is happening. There is also an officer in an un-ma rked white car that patrols the park area. This officer is said to have harassed a number of people for frequent visits to the known "cruse" areas. He made the statement to one of the persons he told not to return to the par k, " I have jailed six of you here lately."

If ever there was a gay volume that had something for everyone, this must be it! If you're the sch­olarly type, you will most likely discover that the narrative ac­company the erotic illustrations will be just your cup of tea. On the other hand, if you're a one­handed reader of erotic litera­ture and drawings, then the very sexy illustrations will be your focal point. HISTORIC COLLECTION devot­es relatively little space to a con­sideration of ancient homosexual art. Perhaps this is just as well since few gay readers would be turned on as much by ancient art as they are by Steve Masters, Tom of Finla nd, Robin, Nate, Hank, and their contemporaries. It should be noted that for those who have a particular aversion to the S/M scene, rapes, gang bangs, and the like -- you will find an a­uundance of this type of drawing in HISTORIC COLLECTION. Almost all of it, however, is in good taste and the milder examples of this ar­tistic genre may be a turn-on to even those who do not normally get excited by domination or S/M. Readers will be pleased to renew acquaintance with some of their old friends , artists whose work they have enjoyed in the past, and to study drawings which perhaps they have never before see_n. the best-known artists are re­presented in this book - - Quain­presented in this book -- Quain­tance with his famous cowboys and Indians, Nate with that exciting pie - MARY'S BAR -- ,_,~_._,,,..,,,. ., ..• ,,,,~.,.,"'-~•••P,,._.,., ............ ... ,,,. .......... ,..,_,, ••••r~tl,. t CALL 643-7976 FOR YOUR PRIVATE APPOINTMENT . for your entire needs - Cosmetics, jewelry, panty-hose, wigs, bras, etc. - lingerie, clothing and understanding. 9 - S Mon. - Sat.

Tom is represented in the volume with several of his sketches of sail­ors and linemen. "Sleeping To­gether", a relaxed sodomy soene by the youthful artist Robin, is also present. Complementing the drawings which are strictly erotic are those which are explicitly or implicitly humorous. Kevin's "Sexy Science Fiction Stories", as well as his sk­etch ·or a nude sailor and a naked Hawaiian(both with giant erections) dancing the hula, are prominent ex­amples of this type. Graewolf's "Fishing", in which well-formed penises are used as fishing poles, was drawn in a sim­ilarly whimsical mood. Falkon's commentary accomp­anying the drawings supplies bio­graphical data about the artists. · Although brief, this material is both informative and genuiJlely ab­sorbing. The narrative also delves into themes, and Falkon has devoted special sections to preliminaries, the "main event", orgies, and " dungeons and domination". The superstud is perhaps best illustrated by Tom's " Magnificent Cyclist", in which a young man shows off his basket to a group of young admirers, several of which seem about to display their own or­gans for comparison. It will become obvious to all but the superficial reader that this book is more than merely a piece of male erotica. It is erotic, but more than that, its compelling co­mmentary, tasteful selection of relevant works of art, and insight­ful comments on the gay scene -­all of these factors render HIS­TORIC COLLECTION abookofen­during significance.
