Transcript MOTHER OF DALLAS The Emergence of a Gay Culture? This month in Dallas? Never a dull moment! Everyone should live such a fun filled existence!! Mother had a vacation! Most of which she spent doing motherly and cleaning woman chores; but. like all good mothers she got a break and she will say this — June has been different. Visited Oklahoma City for a couple of days and honey it was a hoot! Those girls really roll out the red carpet for a new girl or a Mother of Dallas, in town. Mother was so gorgeous nobody recognized her, but Miss Yancy ain't shy. She told everyone who the real Mother was! Wilma, Alice, Tessie, Yancy, my big daughter Bob - Wally. Thanks for a lovely visit, and you know about our Dallas hospitality -- it's flawless. Mother was accompanied by the Lady of the Lake, and we didn't draw sabers (or sobers) one time during the visit. We visited the friendly Greyhound Bus Station and picked up a few souveniors - - a little pink purse for Flame Fleming and a butch lighter for Brenda Starr. The first night we were there we couldn't locate a living soul, but finally found Miss Tinesly in the Downtown Den called the Mir-- ror — There we imbibed a few citrus, talked to good old Wally. After a few hours we grew weary and stopped for a real Weinie at the Bus Station. Next day, Ward was out; Mother was in town, (we mean word was out). A very large party was in the making for Mother at Tessie'sandYancy's.So another Weinie to hold Her over at the Mirror. Wouldn't it have been a hoot if they were having a weinie roast? But no, a lovely dinner, and I've never seen so much food! Gladys you're a lovely lady? We motored back to BigWienie- (I mean Big D), on a Sunday, and of course checked in at the Detour, then the Bayou Landing. There's where it hit the fan. Yep, the sabers were drawn, The Lady of the Lake withdrew, a very tooky Mother and J. Carroll found their way - very slowly through Lilly Lawed streets to safety. Oh, poor hung over mother -- Big Mable the bearer of bad news. "Mother, your bar is burning" and Mary it did! So an extended Page 4 [vacation. And all that booze down •the drain. When they upped the Old Charter, Mother did numeri Hail Mary's, and flew to the Park Bench in front of Villa and sulked. At this time mother isbarmaid- ressing and cocktail waitressing at diflerent gay establishments, The Villa, The Entree Nuit of course and good old Ronsue's. Honey, it's a hoot. The Madam Fertilizer is out of hospital and doing well. It was touch and go for awhile,, but you can't keep an old puss down! The many benefits done for her were tremendous, andl'm sure that when she gets herself in gear, she'll try to thank everyone personally. The turnout for the events at the Encore, Bayou Landing and Ronsue's were the greatest, and would bring tears to the most lecherous eyes. New management at the Bon Soir. Miss Joe McCloud manageress. Then if you're in the market for antiques! There's Mike's Things at 4515 Maple. Mike does not, and I repeat, DOES NOT, deal spec- ificly with OLD WORN OUT THINGS! Donnie Mae, will you get your . whatever together? Reserve me a_ table next week please? Then there's Big David -- Honey I've got a new batch of paper for my little red book, so you can move again! Monica, I miss you ■-- have a citrus for me. Samantha, good to have you in from the ranch on Mother's Day. Miss Millison, I'll be expecting something from you in the mail, while you're doing your thing away from home. We'll shell peas next trip. Missed the MCC Dedication, but heard goodthings. Theyhadapack- ed houre and great reviews from Rev. Troy Perry. Well -- in closing - We hope to rebuild the Detour -- course that takes time. Minnie, if you should happen to read this -- Zula May was in town last week from Baltimore. Your name came up?! This is it for mis month, and please no ad-libs this issue? Mother tries to keep peace, not start wars! Mother of Dallas Gays need their own music. Negroes working on river levees, breaking rocks in prison chain- gangs, picking endless rows of cotton had their songs. Without these songs could they have made it? Jews, subject to hate and abuse for centuries had their folk songs to help keep them united. The poor Irish and Sweedes labored in the hot Texas sun to build the state's first railroads, and their work songs helped them. Hobos, hopping freight trains during the depression had nothing, but their music. All oppressed people have had their own special music -- except one. Why not Gays? Many of the world's greates composers were gay. These men wrote from the deepest emotions of their hearts. Then they gave their music to a straight world that neither understood nor cared. But our music need not be a mighty symphony. Better it be a simple melody. A melody that can bring us together. Something that comes from one heart and touches another. Such a song has now been written, STONEWALL NATION. - ■ May it be only the first of a flood of songs proudly and openly expressing gay love and concern. God bless Madeline Davis. She took one step for her brothers . and sisters when she addressed the Democratic National Convention last summer on behalf of the Gay Rights issue. Now she has taken yet another step by writing and singing the song that is rapidly becoming a gay liberation anthem. I don't want to see my brothers Kicked into the dust no more Their dreams all turned to rush no more No more - no more. I don't want to see my sisters Having to give in no more Their loving called a sin no more No more - no more. And the Stonewall Nation's Gonna have its liberation Wait and see, just wait and see You can take your tolerance and stick it We're gonna write our own ticket The Stonewall Nation, is gonna be Free. Stonewall was the name of a tiny, insignificant bar the police raided that historic night in June, 1969. After years and years of police harassment, gay people finally could take no more. They barricaded the police in the bar -- and that was the gay shot heard round the world. It touched off a riot involving hundreds. And that in turn gave birth to gay pride and the Gay Liberation Movement. The lyrics of STONEWALL NATION are beautiful. The simple melody is almost haunting^and easily singable. This 45 rpm can be purchased from Mattachine Society of the Niagara Frontier, Box 975; El- licott Station, Buffalo, NY, 14205. STONEWALL NATION is not a commercial venture. All proceeds from the sale of this record will help fund the new Gay Community Center in Buffalo. Thank you Madeline Davis. You've done so much for us. Now let us do something for you. We can buy this record. It costs only $1.25. We will always be proud we were in on this historic first. Come on brothers, march along We're all gonna sing our song We 're all gonna sing our song We're all gonna sing pur song Right now - right now. Sisters take me by the hand We're gonna build our promised land Right now - right now. And the Stonewall Nation's Gonna have its liberation Wait and see - just wait and see You can take your tolerance and shove it We're gonna be ourselves andlove it The Stonewall Nation is gonna be free! i CLUB HOUSTON Club Houston is the newest member of the Club Chain.
