VEHICLE: (Possible only) old white over red pickup truck that was rusty and had a long wheel base. Homicide Division 222-3651 Det. E.L. Horelica Det. C.E. Reynolds FIRST TEXAS GAY MARRIAGE 'legally Married' in Houston A onetime male hair stylist for actress Jayne Mansfield and a former Texas football player clasped hands here in Houston Thursday night October 5, ex­changed rings and becaine what they said was the first legally married couple of the same sex in the United States. William Ert, 30, who said he preferred to be called " Billie," and Antonio Molina, 33, a former high school athlete from Browns­ville, Texas quietly exchanged vows at the Harmony Wedding Chapel. The two men got a marriage license Wednesday in Wharton, 60 miles west of Houston. Ert wore a white miniskirt, a blouse, a woman's wig and had his face made up as a woman at the time. "you're confronted with all kinds of characters these days," said Wharton County Clerk Delfin Marelt. "We wouldn't have issued any license if we'd known he wasn't a female. If I'd known there were two men in here trying to get a license .. . " If they present proper age proof and medical certificates, and one looks like a man and one a woman, then there's no further requirement for me to question them," Marek said. Texas Attorney General Craw­ford Martin ruled September 14 that county clerks are not author­ized to issue marriage licenses to two persons of the same sex. He said, however, anyone who has a license can marry. The NUNTIUS was unable to contact the couple at press time but hope to have the complete story of this marriage in the next issue. ISSUE 12 ice &pu,d Officer, I. IJ. Kunkel and Ri,·hanl See rr-arrnn ~~ MA YES HARASSED BY POLICE But won't leave town Tony appeared before the city council after the happening above and the following was reported by the Post. The story of Richard Anthony "Tony" Mayes has not been com­pleted because of research which must be accurate a ccording to Tony. "A member of my family has threatened to 'sue' if there is any descrepancy in the story." The 21st of September police re-arrested Tony after the court had voided charges. It happened like this: "You are under arrest for dressing as the opposite sex." That statement by a vice squad officer was a prelude to another round of troubles for transexual Mayes as he was arrested Thurs - day in front of the police station. Tony, who had just left city court where the same charges were dismissed on a technicality, was arr ested by vice squad officers Richard See and J. W. Kunkel as he (she as is prefered bi ~ Tony) stepped onto the sidewalk. When Tony came to the police station August 24, to post bond for a friend charged with dressing as a female, he was arrested on the same charge. The case was dismis~ed on the 21st because the inside of the police building is not regarded as a " public thoroughfare," as stated in the revised law on transexuals. One interpr etation of the law is that people can be arrested outside of a building but not inside for dr essing as the opposite sex. The law, Section 28-42.4 of the Houston Code of Ordinances states: See Moyes page 12 OUR COl\lMUNITY NOThiNG hUMAN is AlieN TO us f ---~ ·---­'- ---,-·-"' m e~Sll\ ~'HE "' ~p ARTMENT 2828 RIO GRANDE 478-0224 'l' AUSTIN, TEX. ..if I (29th & Rio Grande) t 4 - 12 DAILY 4 - OPEN 1 SATURDAY 3 - 12 SUNDAY '\, 1\ l ~ Beer - SOf 1 1 Tap - 1/-0~ Wine Cooler - Wine 60f , - SOf) ~ Pitcher - Tom mys - Poco Mas $1.50 Champagne I ) \ 7 Hamburgers and tap beer X ; !

This past July the new owners, B. K. and Keith, opened the finest bar yet in our capitol city. THE NEW APARTMENT has been enlarged and completely remoleled and yet has kept the same atmos­phere that has made it one of the most enjoyable and successful gay bars in Texas. A large patio was added at the front (back) of the building with the decorating and landscaping be­ing done by customers. Just two weeks ago a new large room was added to the side of the old build­ing and the opening of this room was coupled with the visit of Bud­dy, popular Houston Go-Go Boy from the Red Room, to celebrate the event. Buddy was lent to THE NEW APARTMENT by THE RED ROOM in Houston for this special event. Big nights at the bar are Friday, Saturday and Sunday, but you can find a crowd there every night of the week after 8:30 or 9. The new room has become the game room for the bar and has two pool tables and foosball. Plenty of chairs are available now for those of you who want to rest between cruises and a few tables that will even make the table hoppers happy. { THE NEW APARTMENT has r Tue~tJay - October 31, 1972 CASH PRI.ZES Best Costume Best Comedy Best Drog ,. been strictly a beer and wine bar \ ! since it . was first opened in the y late 60's, but B.

TV First for Rocco ANOTHER "FffiST" FOR PAT New York now has the first regularly scheduled all gay tele­vision show which started last August 24th. It's a two hour weekly syndicated show, and, naturally, they called on Pat Rocco to supply the opening and closing film seg­ments for credits and show ident­ification. Pat went all out, and filmed kissing scenes in the middle of the streets, boys walking hand in hand through the crowds on Hollywood Blvd., and the like. We'll be seeing a print of those seq­uences at our next meeting, (thatis if you are in California and a member of SPREE), but rest as­sured that New York television will never be the same after Rocco invades with another T.

The action was brought by the American Civil Liberties Union Foundation of Northern California. Joining in the petition were the two teachers who had invited the speaker- -Kristina O'Donnell and Lawrence Siegel--as well as stu­dents who wished to hear the talk, parents who wished them to, and the organization which supports the civil rights of homosexuals, (SIR) Society for Individual Rights. Remcho points out several court ~ecisi?ns that support this right, including one which states "The classroom is peculiarly the' 'mar­ket place of ideas!' The Nation's future depends upon leaders train­ed through wide exposure to that robust exchange of ideas which dis­covers truth 'out of a multitude of ~nuges' (rather) than through any kind authoritative selection." He explained, "This kindofunreason­ing authoritative action is exactly the opposite of the kind of de­mocratic experience that we want ou!:. ch~ld!:_l:n _to learn in school." 81 Years young! - MUTHER TO DRAG - FRIEND TO ALL The controversy arose at the end of last school term when homo­sexual Robby Robillard was sche­eduled to tell of the discriminat­ion gays experienced to students in Personal Philosophy and Minority Studies classes at San Marin High School. Although re­presentatives of other discrimi­nated groups (blacks, women, stu­dents) had spoken earlier in the year to the classes, the school administrators refused to allow Robillard to speak, and even ob­tained a reprimand for the teachers from the school board for inviting the speaker over the principal's objection. Frank Fitch, heard of SIR's speaker bureau explained that Rob­illard was not invited to discuss sexual activity, but rather the problems of discrimination by soc­iety of a minority group. He states "Just as a white cannot adeq: uately inform a class about the subject of discrimination against blacks, so a non-gay cannot ade­quately explain the discrimination experi1:nced by _gays. Frankly, we are qwte surprised by this action of the Novato school, since we are supplying speakers for secondary schools of the Bay Area at some­thing like the rate of one a week." GAY PRISONERS DENIED PAROLE abuse of his authority in punish­ing those who do not subscribe to his own religious convictions. At this point, these men have be­come political prisoners since they have been denied freedom and access to treatment, not on the basis of any crime or misbehavior in prison, but because of their values." ACLU Staff Counsel Joseph Re­mcho states, " The issue is whether school administrative authorities can thwart the wishes of students, parents and teachers to hear re­sponsible discussion of contro­versial issues within the class­room setting. It is particularly ironic that this situation happened in a school district with an en­lightened official guideline which says that 'students have the right to study any controversial issue which has political, economic, or social significance." Attendance at the lecture in question has been optional for the student with written permission from parents required for admit­tance. The ACLU action requests a court ruling that the speaker not be refused an opportunity to speak at the school, and that the re­primand be withdrawn from the teachers' files. Two inmates of Oregon State Prison were denied parole last week on the basis of their homo­sexuality, according to William H. DuBay, director of Stonewall, Sea­ttle's residential treatment center for homosexuals in trouble with the law, drugs, or alcohol. In a letter of protest to Oregon Governor Tom McCall, DuBay said the de­nials of parole to Larry Slopak and Ron Endersby were "blatant example of biographical discrim­ination which has resulted in the consistent denial of parole to homosexuals in irison, in spite of the liberalized laws regarding homosexuality in your state." DuBay also said the reason for the denials was obvious: "In de­nying parole to Mr. Slopak, Wil­liam Newell (chairman of the parole board) cited the Bible and his own sexual values, a clear ------ HOROSCOPES CAPRICORN AQUARIUS PISCES ARJES TAURUS GElllNl 12/22-1/20 1/21-2/19 2/20-3/20 3/21--4/20 4/21-5/21 5/22-6/21 626-2120 626-3626 626-3633 626-4533 626-5232 626-5◄ 33 ------ BY PHONE IS HERE CANCER LEO VIROO LMRA SCOR.PIO 8AGITTARru8 6/2i.-7 /23 7/24-a/23 1/24-9/23 9/24-10/23 10/24-11/22 ll/2S-l2/2I 626-U20 6264232 626-1242 ,26-auo The telephone has led us to Time of Day Service, Recorded Weather Information, Part;y Information by Pboae, Dial a Prayer, and now "HOROSCOPES BY PHONE''. Centuries ago the rich had their personal staff of astrologers to counsel their daily act­ivities, to help make decisions for the day, and in general, advise them on everything they did. As time went by, horoscopes dwindled in popularity and little was said about it as the world became mechanized. Now the boom has set upon us again as people the world over are studying and becoming involved. Interest is highest in matters of love, money, and health. Daily forecasts search upon these subjects. People are talking, writing, and living as­_ frology. There are those .who frown upon it, but then there are physicians who perform operations by it, individuals who date by astrol­ogy, and people who wouldn't consider making any major purchases unless it was approved by the stars. Because of this new high in­terest, a new service is being brought to Houston--HOROSCOPES BY PHONE. 826-9410 626-9322 HOROSCOPES BY PHONE was founded by young Houstonian, Ken Wynn, with his first full month of services beginning October of 1972. Each Zodiac sign is assigned a phone number which will provide a daily horoscope along with commercial message. Ken and leading TV and radio personalities take turns in delivering the introductions, horoscope, and commercial mes­sages. The horoscope is changed around mid­night each evening. Listed above are all the horoscope numbers, so be sure to give your horoscope number a call each day. Each horo­scope number may also be obtained from the phone company's "information" and will be listed under "Horoscopes" when the new phone book comes out. HOROSCOPES BY PHONE is already re­ceiving a great amount of interest and studies of other horoscope services in other cities show an expected 2 million calls per month. This should provide an excellent service to those interested in horoscopes as well as to those providing the commercial messages. DuBay asked the governor for a new hearing for each of these men "to eliminate once and for all this rank discrimination against homosexuals on the basis of their sexual orientation." Gay Drug Center Wins State Approval Stonewall; Seattle's residential treatment center for Gay persons in trouble with.drugs, alcohl, or the law, was certified on August 21 as an approved drug treatment center by the Department of Soc- • ial and Health Services. According to David J. Baird, Director of the Stonewall Treatment Center this is the first program to qualify under a new law enacted by the legislature last year to regulate drug treatment programs. Baird also commented: "The new regulations are a part of a sophisticated plan to provide com­prehensive and coordinated ser­vices for alcoholics and drug ab­users in each community. We are proud to qualify as a member of the team of helping agencies serv­ing the Seattle-King County area. More citizens involvement is need­ed to solve the problems of drug and alcohol addiction, and the and alcohol addiction, and the Department of Social and Health Services is offering every support to those developing new and in­novative programs." In June, Stonewall also received state approval as a parole program for ex-offenders coming out of prison and those on probation.

CAROL DODA Carol Doda, whose silicone-en­riched bosom helped launch San Francisco's topless craze says she and 75 other co-workers will go on strike if topless-botomless male dancers are permitted on North Beach stages. Several night­club owners, noting the furor caus­ed by actor Burt Reynolds' por­trait in the buff in a recent maga­zine, had announced plans to audit­ion nude male dancers. Miss Doda, 44-23-26, met with club owners Marvin Boyd of El Cid, Pete Mat­tioli of the Condor and Art Than­ash of the Roaring 20s to warn that the naked ladies of North Beach would walk off the stages if nude male dancers walked on. It appears that these ladies are afraid of the competition - - why not something for everyone?? I _,C-l!'J•···-······ -----...... ................. ··--- -----, Actors,_ story excel in 'Devil in the Flesh' It probably won't ruin the enjoy­ment of Devil in the Flesh for those of you that will be seeing this new gay film if we come right out and tell about the murder near the end of the picture. This particular scene is also used as a prologue before the titles, so audi­ences will be aware from the very beginning that this character will be killed, although the identity of the murderer is not revealed until the final reel. Mark Taylor plays a rich, cal­culating young man who regards his lover, Brian Reynolds, merely as a sex object and another mate­rial possession. Reynolds feels, and rightly so, that he deserves better, so he has a little thing go­ing on the side with a hustler, Van Stewart. MR'. CHELSEY ST. JOHN MARK TAYLOR Blond, Sexy and Beautiful Reynolds is not the shrewdest judge of character. Stewart is also playing him for all he can get. With a setup like this, it's only a matter of time until the situation explodes and one of the three ·is murdered. Knight. The film is in black and white. Color is not necessary, in fact, this type of story is probably better told without color. A more ominous mood is created. The .actors pay as much atten­tion to their lines as their loins, for a change, and the original screenplay by Gorton Hall has provided them with dialog they feel comfortable speaking, and it shows. Brian Reynolds registers in a sensitive role and Mark Taylor, who starred in the recent Come of Age, is effective as his lover. Per­haps Taylor plays his role a little more fortissimo than the others because of his stage training, but it's in keeping with the character. Vaughn Avant and writer Hall also appear as police detectives. The big surprise was Van Stew­art's performance as the hustler. He steals the picture from the rest of the cast. Stewart also appeared in Intimate Rebels, and nothing about that picture gave the slight­est inkling he could even act. In our review of Rebels, we men­tioned the hope of viewing the actors involved under better cir­cumstances, and we can't imagine any better circumstances than those in which Stewart finds him­self in Devil in the F/e,h. He is a revelation, nothing less, and his ability to underplay, and yet strike the crucial chords in his scenes, makes his pivotal role the most memorable of the whole film. 'Other Side of Joey' Keeping in mind this film is made for a specialized market, where movies are measured by their sexual content first and sto­ry values second, it is a pleasure to report that Devil in the Flesh inte­grates its sex with the plot so clev­erly, it isntt until it's over that we realize there was plenty of sex, but it was the story that kept us engrossed. The film didn't come to a screeching halt while the ac­tors got their rocks off. The sex emphasized the development of each character's personality and advanced the plot instead of act­ing as a reg uire ment. Devil in the Flesh could be lhe sleeper hit of the year. It has rapid pace, g0od performances, and ex­cellent photography by Barry One thing that caught our eye in Come of Age was Mark Taylor's telephone scene, and how easily and naturally he handled it. He has three of them in Devil in the Flesh, each better than the one before. If this continues, he'd bet­ter start composing award accept­ance speeches. After all, look what the telephone did for Luise Rainer. We don't know if this can be attributed to his director, Roger Marks, or if it is Stewart's own resources that other directors have failed to tap. Whatever t he case, now that it's been proven that he is an actor of considerable talent and dimension, let's hope his fu. ture films will make better use of his abilities.

First, it continues screenwriter Gorton Hall's campaign to invest male porno flicks with more than just a grunt and a groin, and it serves nicely to reintroduce youthful Erik Kahnler (Reflections of an Indian Boy). At some point in the past, J ag­uar ·Productions seems to have cautioned itself that from now on its products would have sex and a plot. Naturally, many habitues of the genre will ask, " What's a plot?" But this doesn't deter film­maker Hall, whose stamp is clearly on this newest effort as it was on its predecessor, Devil in the Flesh. Joey is lyrical, has a somewhat melancholy simplicity, and will appeal strongly to romantics. There are no sensational hodies on view if musc1e, bulk, and protrud­ing veins are the viewer's bag, but the flesh is friendly, often sizzling, and the performers look like real people. The film's opening footage is the weakest. In prologue, Gordon Harris' voice-over wonders how in hell he happened to fall in love with a young Ganymede (Kahn­ler). Next follows a long sequence of Kahnler and Harris in the sack doing all the same old things in the same old way. Since the audi­ence really doesn't know who the characters are, and the music that trav~ls along with their huffing and puffing is garish-sounding and inappropriate, Joey promises to be a bore. Once that tedious open­ing is out of the way, however, t hings take a fast upbeat. Harris has mixed emotions about the affair. He wants Joey, and he doesn't, and is annoyed when the youngster doesn't think and act like an adult (probably the very qualities that attracted him to Joey in the first place) . Joey, who has a ner;ous tend­ency to work out every emotional problem with the aid of a mat­tress, makes it wiih an ex (Elliott Crawford), a prick who wants to get even with Joey for leaving him. He calls up two buddies who are into the S&M trip, interrupt­ing them as they are watching a fuck flick on their own time (nice touch). Breathing hotly, they show up and work Joey over, albeit not eno ugh really lo turn on the pain lor pleasure crowd. These shots are in tercut with scenes of Harris at t he office daydreaming about happy moments he shared with Joey. The flashbacks give the film an .emotional lure. Certain that he's been had from every direction, Joey returns home convinced that he's some­thing to be used. He doesn't dig the knowledge. So, like Salinger's Holden Caulfield, he decides to blow. Harris returns, and theres a damn good scene here: Joey not wanting to go; Harris wanting him to stay; and neither one of them ready to take the first step toward reconciliation. When they both decide to stop playing games, the effect is heart-tugging. It's refresh­ing to see two guys deciding to make something work, rather than searching for all the dubious rea­sons that their relationship will flounder. So, the story's both innocent and bittersweet. Kahnler falls into the category of · Chicken Delight, and hawks will find him tasty. In the acting department, he develops signif' • ~ cantly as the film progresses. He has a certain seraphic quality that he uses to good advantage. His lis­some grace works, and he handle, the sexual hanky-panky with ar, easygoing manner. The small supporting cast ac­quits itself in fine fettle. Besides Harris and Crawford, both of whom do well, there's William Maxwell as the leather-clad mes­senger of latent machismo. James Fuller, with the wildest hairdo this side of Orphan Annie, scores as his sidekick. Roge r Marks han­dles the lens work capably. The Other Side of Joey, culmi­nating as it does with both part- _ ners getting an indication of what they truly want as opposed to what each thinks he'd like to have, opens up a new field an approach to maturity.

SPECIAL SHOW "STATE FAIR MUSICALS" THRUSDAY NIGHTS - - - AMATEUR NIGHTS (with CASH prizes) . GUYS WIN Althea Oueen Saturday September 24th was the advent of the Annual Volley­Ball game tossed by a group of prominent Houston gays. Mason Street comes alive with the sights and sounds of both segments of our society. It's probably the most cordial of any event that includes both guys and girls in good- heart­ed and high spirited fun and rivalry. Lots of good cold beer is dis­tributed and with the entrance of four brightly clad boy(?) cheer­leaders along with the girls team jogging in under the flame of a somewhat dubious Olympic torch the festivities were off with a rousing start. It's hard to tell who had the most fun. Boys watching boys. Girls watching girls or mixtures of both. Needless to say both teams play.ed to win and by half time the ~ys were definitely out­classing the girls in the athletic arena. The threatening weather did nothing to dampen the spirits of either team. Half time is always the high light of the show and this year was no exception. Making their entrance in open convertables the home ­coming court was no less than astounding and just s lightly color­ful. The coronation ceremonies were a riot and this year's winner was Althea Gibson. Alway s a maid and never a Queen, Althea finally made it to the top after several years of stiff competition. The les s said about the Queen's cos t­ume the better. Halftime activities also included music by the March­ing band that elected to sit it out this year and by rousing cheers of supporters of both teams. Along with a couple of talented baton twirlers doing their thing and doing it very well. Writers of the half­time script are to be congratulat­ed and the hos ts and hostesses can rest assured thateveryonehad the time of their life. They really know how to toss a party. The guys ended up as champs and the girls were good sports about the whole thing. It really isn't important who won the game since it's all in fun anyway but the spirit of unity did overpower the whole outing and that is whats important. Page 8 Police and Post indicted Following the above which ap ­peared in the Houston Post on Friday, September 22, the follow­ing letter was received at the Post. It is reassuring to learn that the Houston Police Department, with 26,219 reported burglaries in 1971, only 2,727 of which were cleared by arrest, much less by conviction, stilJ has the time and resources to assign at least two of its highly skilled and trained officers, as well as the secretar­ial staff to prepare the necessary offense reports and charges, to arrest Richard Anthony Mayes (Post Sept. 22) on the steps of the police station for dressing in female clothing. All aside from the problem which a Scotsman in kilts might en­counter in our city because of this diligence of the vice squad' s ex­pertise in determining sex by the nature of clothing, it would seem to me, as a taxpayer, that the police could be more productively employed in seeking out thieves and burglars, who generally do not work on the front porch of the po\ice station and who represent more of a public inconvenience than a man wearing a skirt, if he . is a man, medically speaking. May I also suggest that the editor who chose to give 80 column inches to this pathetic story (in­cluding a four-column cut) needs to have his news judgment re­evaluated, particularly in the ab­sence of any apparent inquiry by the reporter about this gross waste of police manpower . . . William F. Walsh That story quoted Richard An­thony Mayes: "The biggestprob­lem is trying to educate people about transsexuals." You seem to be one of the people he was talking about.

City's report on transvestism almost ready City health director Albert Ran­dall said Wednesday he is nea ring completion of a transvestite report for city councilmen after a second appear ance by transsexual Richard Anthony Mayes before the council. Mayes asked councilmen three months ago to issue cards to per­mit true transvestites the freedom of dressing in clothes of the op­posite sex. The council told Dr. Randall to compile a report on the subject. Mayes, who says he is required to dress as a woman for a year before undergoing a sex change operation, had one transvestite charge dismissed in court recent­ly. He was arrested for the seventh time as he left the courtroom in a dr ''If you think I can be harassed until I leave town, you're wrong," he told councilmen Wednesday. "I love Houston and I will stay." Mayes, who goes by th e alias of Toni Rochelle Mayes, said infor­mation on the conditions of t r ans­vestism could be read in a couple of weeks. He said he was expecting action by the council within that time. Councilman Frank Mann accused Mayes of being a publicity seeker. "Go ahead and lead a funny life - - you can get your operation with all the publicity," Mann told Mayes . Mayes said the, only publicity involved was in trying to inform the public of the plight of trans­vestites. oveg 9Jou .... . ... go CDo CWe [ ---~ - Join UrJ In Chu11ch - JAet!lopoQ t ta" CoMvnunt ty Chullch o5 DALLAS s~~rtJwSHIP- 6:30 PM A REV.

The law was changed June 2, because of its ambiguity. Hence, four earlier charges (before June 2) against Mayes for dressing as a female were dropped. ' 'Today I feel like I was being harassed," said Tony, "Especially after they dismissed the case and then turned around and arrested me." Earlier, outside the courtroom, Tony said he (she) expected to be arrested when he (she) got out­side. When asked if he thought Mayes was being harassed, Mayes' lawJ Larry Sauer, said, "Now I do ·. re, she was also harass-ed. buL i.vW, it's obvious." Sauer said his client is con­sidering filing harassment charges against the police. Tony was released after posting $27 .50 bond on the original charge and another $27 .50 for an outstand­ing traffic warrant. "I think I have a job starting tomorrow," Tony said after her release. "But after all this pub­licity they will probably recognize me." SHOWTIAIE - suHPAY Page 12 J She said that she has been un­able to hold a job because of her sexual preference. Mayes told re­porters she had been living with friends for over a year and that she is short of money. "The biggest problem is trying to educate people about transex­uals." Tony said that he didn't see any movement developiljg for transex­uals, but she did say "I would appreciate any help, but I would not expect anyone to go through what I am goi~g through." Shrink out'a sight Members of GAYS OF/D'OT­TAWA had the dubious privilege of hearing Dr. Arboleda, a clinical psychologist at the Royal Ottawa Hospital and an admitted male heterosexual, present a talk on "Homosexuality, a psychiatrist's point of view". While addressing a mixed male/female predominatly homosexual audience, he stuck to reciting the various 'conservative' views on male homosexuality, hate propaganda we are all too famil­iar with. Presenting himself as authority and observer, only once did he actually give his own views, admitting that his prime aim in working with male gays would be to change their sexuality and second­ly to get them to accept their homosexuality. It was a frustrating evening listening to this man, pompously sitting there telling us how we live, what we do, why we are gay, yet at the same time it was a good learning experience. Never again are we going to invite heterosex- . uals to come to us as the know-ing ones on homosexuality. We gays are the only authorities we who Ii ve it 24 hours a day, '365 days a year. We who know our gay brothers and sisters as human beings, not as clinical subjects and who also are all too familiar with the discrimination and ig­norance in the larger society that create the problems we have to cope with. We would be shocked to hear a white sociologist address a black organization recounting the high crime rate and low business suc­cess among blacks without taking into account the all-prevalent pre­judice and discrimination blacks must fight against. I was shocked to hear Dr. Arboleda. Psychiatry for him is a tool to create social conformity. Denying his long-term responsibility to his patients, he attempts to get the gay person to conform to the status quo by either changing their sexuality or maintaining a low profile and not fighting the wrongs of society that keep gays oppressed. Psychiatry has for too long put the onus for change on the dissident individual, the woman who suffers from de­pression due to the boredom of her housewife role, the gay who is forced to deny his or herself to pass as straight. The problem is not an indi victual one but a more general oppression of a soc­iety demanding social conformity at all costs even when it oppresses and denies the right of self-ful­fillment to so many people. It is time for all gay men and gay women to say no to society and ignorant psychiatrists. We will 1. ~t conform to your prejudices. We will remain GAY, GAY AND PROUD. Dr. Arboleda, you are an ig­norant man. Your knowledge is 9 ti/ 11 plus based on outdated and biased books written by heterosexuals. You haven' t read Churchill, Weinberg, Altman or any of the newer writ­ers on homosexuality. Dr. Arboleda, you are sexists for thinking that only male hono­sexuality is important and deny­ing 50% of the homosexual pop­ulation. You are also sexist for your constant reiteration of male and female roles. There are no gender roles, only roles for human beings. But above all Dr. Arboleda, you are an oppressive man. You draw a fancy salary, paid out of our taxes, for policing this society, controlling those who don't want to conform to the status quo. You impose your values on gays and others making them feel guilty for wanting to live their own lives and deny the guilt of the larger pre­iudiced society. I would hate you Dr. Arboleda if I feared you, but since I don't I just pity you. Charlie Hill (GO info) Police entrapment in highway rest areas EDITOR (Editor's note: The author of the following article is a Boston At­torney of the firm of Rook, Roth and Rubino, which has been pro­viding legal assistance to the gay community.) BOSTON- The following is a com­mon fact situation for a man: While driving north on Interstate Route 93 you have to urinate; you stop at a rest area andgointothewoods to relieve yourself. As you are walking into the woods, you pass a young man who says hello. You acknowledge him and proceed into the woods to unzip your pants. All of a sudden there is an arm on your shoulder - - you turn around to see the young man you just passed flashing a police badge at you and informing you that you are under arrest. The next thing you know is that you are in jail, charged wih the crime of open and gross lewdness and being a disorderly person. This situation can happen to you, and in fact it does happen to hund­reds of individuals each year. The state and local police in towns such as Attleboro and Woburn have an active program in which they station police decoys in the rest areas in Route 93 and Route 95. The decoys are usually young P<?­lice officers who are coached rn such tactics. The officers dress in casual clothes , usually tight-fitt­ing pants and a sport shirt. In the warmer months they are stat­ioned in these areas approximately three days per week, six hours per da_y. It is not unforeseeable for any- ~@w-~ r ~ 1 ll 00~00 t /41 one, gay or straight, to acknow­ledge a "hello" when passing such a person. However, if you do ac­knowledge his presence you may ultimately find yourself under ar­rest. After you are arrested, you are, booked, fingerprinted and photo­graphed. The police will then release you but inform you that you must appear in the local court on a certain date. Upon appearing in court, the prosecutor, who is usually a police officer, may ap­proach you to offer you a deal. The prosecutor may offer to drop one of the charges (open and gross lewdness) if you pleadguilty ("cop a plea") to the other charges (being a disorderly person) and pay a fine (usually $200.). '\ At this point you may consider yourself lucky not to be in jail. But upon further reflection you re­alize that this experience has now cost you some money for the fine , perhaps a lawyer, and any time you have lost from work. Moreover, you will have a criminal record which could seriously impair your future and disqualify you for any number of jobs. You are, in fact, now classified to those who can read between the lines as a "sex criminal" and " pervert." If you haven't considered how it was straight society that has made you a victim of this psychological brand of police brutality, you may even blame yourself for the situation.

BOOK REVIEW THE LONG SEARCH by Avery Heath, published at$5.95 by Vantage Press, 120 West 31st St., New York, N.Y. 10001; a 416 · page book. "This is a shocker, and a serious shocker. Its theme is homosexual love," say the Vantage Press pub­licists. Well, perhaps not a shocker for you guys who have kept up with the sometimes exciting, some­times outrageous offerings in gay popular literature during the past few years. In no sense is it in the same class with the more sleazy paperback "novels," whether gay, straight or mixed. Be that as it may, we were very pleasantly surprised by the quality of this book. Its theme (gay-hustler -hitchhikers) has been much over­worked of late, its characterizat­ios is often wooden, and many of the principals experiences seem unnessarily repetitive. Now that we've given you some warning of SEARCH's drawbacks, we can pro­ceed with the multiple reasons why this narrative of a gay oddyssey is worth reading and owning. The book is in two parts, the first of which deals with Frank, a successful young businessman in his early thirties, who feels empty and useless after the sudden death of his wife. On the advice of neighbors and friends, Frank leaves the small midwestern town where he has spent his life to date, and starts out on an aimless drive across the continent. He picks up a hitchhiker, Billy, who tells him he is a hustler. In his naivete Frank does not know what a hustler is; nor does he yet know anything about his own true nature and his needs to give and receive love. But he learns! He learns as he encounters Ray, the sailor; Carl, the drifter; Tony, the beautiful, hustling orphan; and Jim, the fugitive from straight matrimony. Then we turn to Tony, the hero of the second part, an orphan who is unlike Frank in that he has been exposed to homosexual practice since early adolescence. However, like Frank, he needs to express his gay feelings more deeply than the casual encounter in movies and T-rooms will allow. At times Tony comes across as the hustler with the proverbial heart of gold . . . or at least with manifest sensitivity. Combinations of chance and psy­chological necessity bring Frank and Tony together in a YMCA, then separate them, then reunite them. How similar this is to life itself, any sexually experienced reader can testify. Memorable vignettes abound in this surprising book. An orgy on a YMCA shower floor, a con­frontation between Tony and an em­asculating bitch who wants his lover, a shakedown and brutal rape, a wild posing session for teenage photography models, and several others that remain in the review­er's memory. Beneath the surface descriptions of actual gay sex, the narcissism, promiscuity, gang-bang and orgy, is the haunted cry of the authentic lover who cannot understand or accept his gay nature that an op­pressive society not only rejects but punishes as criminal.

EVEN HE KNOWS I'M GAY --by Alan THE LORD IS MY SHEPHERD AND HE KNOWS I'M GAY, by Rev. Troy Perry, published at $7.95 by Nash Publishing Co., 9255 Sunset Blvd., Los Angeles, California 90069, 232 pages. To almost every regular reader of THE ADVOCATE Rev. Troy Perry is well-known and needs no introduction, as that show business cliche puts it. But to those of you who don't keep up with gay organizations as much as you'd like, Rev. Troy Perry is the founder and current pastor of the Metropolitan Com­munity Church in Los Angeles. As you'll recall. MCC-Hollywood was the first American (perhaps the first in the world, as their publicity claims) church to be entirely gay oriented. Many a church has had a closety gay pastor, to be sure, but MCC­Hollywood was the first to accept the homosexuality of its pastor and congregation and build on that homosexuality in a constructive manner. As a consequence, MCC churches across the nation has achieved the reputation of being integral elements in the gay com­munities which they strive to serve. But all this has been of re­latively resent origin. To under­stand the significance of this pehn­omenon emerging in the 1960's, one needs to read the compelling, often provocative autobiography of founder-pastor Troy Perry. " I am not a creature from the outer darkness," asserts Perry. "I am a homosexual, a man of flesh and blood. And I have a few things to say . . . . " Lover of God and lover of men, this activist pastor pulls no punches as he narrates the story of his personal life and that of his church. His revelations are some­times shocking, often explosive, and surprisingly fascinating. He makes no attempt to milk the reader for sympathy. Some­times, in fact, his egoism gets in the way of whatefer sympathy might otherwise be forthcoming. But enough gays have been through the same kind of sexist discrim­ination which he describes to be able to empathize, if not sym­pathize, with his position in most instances . "I am a human being first," he explains, "who believes that sexual orientation should be no more important as a standard for judging.a person than knowing how one makes a living or combs his hair." An extreme position per­haps, especially in an uptight soc­iety which so clearly dotes on its sexual neuroses. But this is not to say that in any sense Perry's viewpoint and that of the entire gay activist movement is unworthy of profound consideration by middle-of-the­road gays who have long ago come out of their closets but who are still somewhat timid about public demonstrations of nascent gay power-political, economic, re­ligious, social, etc. Troy Perry has long since work­ed through the conflicts and answered these demanding quest­ions for himself, as he details in the autobiography. His attempt at leading a "straight" life by marrying and • having children ended in -iear dis­aster and an attempted &uicide. Not until he was able to accept • what he was, and turned to a quest for self-respect and spiritual fulfillment, did he begin to find inner peace and contentment. Possibly, just possibly there's a message for all of us in the story of Troy Perry, servant of God as revealed in Jesus Christ and fac­ilitater of his fellow man. Page 15 MR.

These are even more serious charges. The injustice involved in such situations starts, of course with society's maintenance of the' taboo against homosexuality. Straight society's inability to deal with homosexuality as a natural aspect of human behavior forces gay peo­ple into anonymous crusing sit­uations such as the rest areas on interstate highways. Such rest areas have the unique quality of being located in relatively rural areas, whereas most crusing spots are in big cities (where police entrapment and/or haras­sment also occurs). Straight society in effect makes a two-pronged assault on the homo­sexual - - first, driving him into secrecy to seek sex in dark places and second, finding the resultant cruising scene disagreeable and worthy ot police action. Even apart from the basic in­justice which occurs when "het­erosexual" and "homosexual" are coerced into two distinct cate­gories, many people might ask the following question: If the police want to deter these "crimes," why don't they station a uniformed policeman with a marked car at the rest areas? This would stop the so-called crimes before they happen and satisfy the "civilian _ complaints." Instead, the police take a course of action which per­mits them to lodge two charges instead of one. (For the homosex­uals, any police action represents further repression against their attempt to survive in a hostile society.) In such cruising situations, the police decoy could quickly arrest the individual upon the initial sol­icitation. For some reason, the police do not choose to make the arrest at that point, but instead go into the woods with the in- "''· FriUy 3401 Milam at Francis -entrance on Francis Membership $2. per year THE NUNTIUS PUBLISHED MONTHLY HOUSTON, TEXAS "< ~PRIVATE BATH CLUB,,..._, Houston Page 16 Visits- Tuesday - Wednesday & Thursday - $3.00 Friday Saturday & Sunday Visits $5.00 OPEN 24 hrs.

This puts the police in a position of power because now they have two charge s , and they can bargain. The prosecutor may p ro­pose a plea - copping situation. Next comes the scene in court. Present are the judge, p rosecuting officer, a r resting officer, the de ­fendant and (perhaps) his attor ney. Therefore, there are only two per­sons who were actually present when the incident took place - - the arr esting officer and the de­fendant. What happens next is "the administ ration of justice." The arresting officer (the decoy, now in uniform) takes the witness stand. He s tates his name and rank and then proceeds to give his ac­count of what happened. I have been the attorney of recor d on many such cases and I have never heard the a rresting officer 's testimony vary more than a few sentences. The arresting officer testifies that he was approached by the de­fendant, asked to go further into the woods, and while there, was touched by the defendant on the genitals. The defendant now has an op­portunity to tell his story. He states that he stopped to r e lieve himself and entered into a con­versation with the decoy; that tho decoy was overly friendly and se­emed to want the defendant to " come on" to him. The defendant, unsure of himself, is cautions and does not make any move until he i s sure the decoy "knows the scene." At that point, an invitation is made, sometimes by was of a gesture and sometimes by words. Once this overture is made, the defendant is arrested. (The testi­mony of defendants clearly indicates that is is very unlikely that straight private citizens would be approached in such cruising sit­uations.) It is virtually impossible however, for the gay defendant to defend himself with strength and dignity before such a hostile judic­ial system. The judge, being the finder of fact in District Court, finds the defendant guilty. He, in effect, is saying that he does not believe the defendant's testimony but does believe that of the arresting of­ficer. This is an essential part of the entr apment tactic. If both parties were telling the t r uth, and if the judge weighed both testimonies equally, he would then have to find the defendant not guilty. The defendant, in a criminal action, does not have to prove him­self innocent - - that is presumed. The prosecutor has the burden to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that the defendant is guilty. In the above mentioned example, the judge should find that the police decoy enticed the defendant to commit a "crime," and therefore there was no solicitation. Or, in the a lternative, he should find the de­fendant not guilty because the pro­s ecution has not proved its case beyond a reasonable doubt. In order to be guilty of assault and battery, for example, the victim mus t be put in fear of a touching followed by an unconsenting touching. In the example presented, the decoy was never in fear and he consented to the touching. IIIRY'S BAR - - --'Pen 10 A.Al.

It is not a crime to be homo­sexual in Massachusetts. Instead Massachusetts has laws which are almost exclusively applied. to homosexuals, such as cnrne against nature, lascivious cohab­itation open and gross lewdness, unnatu~al and lascivious acts, 3;nd unnatural and lascivious acts with a child under sixteen. These laws are not dead letters; m,~ny_peopl,~ are in jail for these cnrnes. In addition, homosexuals _are often charged with b~ing a_ disorderly person and being guilty of as­sault and battery. The modern and enlightened trend across the country in "sex crime" legislation is to repeal the above-mentioned laws, or at least some of them. The so-called "Sodomy laws" (insofar as they affect "consenting adults "L have been repealed in lllinois (1962), Connecticut (1972), Oregon (1972), ltiaho (1972) and Colorado (1972). Further "crime against nature" statutes which are worded exactly as is Massachusetts General Law Chapter 272 Section 34 have been declared unconstitutional by :he Texas and Florida Supreme Courts. If and when the Massachusetts laws in this area are changed, the problems previously mention­ed may be eliminated. But what are we to do at present to help those individuals who are _arrest­ed and are receiving crinunal re­cords? The solution is not an easy one. An attorney or group of attorneys can challenge the constitutionality of these laws. This would temp­orarily deter police activities in this area. But is my feeling that the legislature would enact a new criminal statute which would be harsher than the present one. Another approach could be to start a legal suit against the_ v~r­ious police departments to elimin-ate the use of police decoys in homosexual solicitation cases. An agrument can be set forth that !he use of police decoys not only 111- fringes on one's Consti~tional rights but can also be considered police entrapment on a grand scale. For this, however, we need documentation of almost all criminal cases in this area. By far the most powerful force 1 that can be used to prevent the ruin of hundreds of persons' lives each year is the people them­selves. If and when the gay and straight communities realize that happen. . . f (Editor's footnote: Victims o entrapment in cruising areas are urged to obtain legal counsel.

For a long time the NUNTIUS (and a few people in local groups) have been concerned about the small amount of copy for women' and for just as long the amount of actual effort directed to changing this has been very small. The NUNTIUS has decided to initiate a campaign to attract more wo­men into the welcoming arem of the NUNTIUS by attempting to convince them that we are NOT an all-male publication. The first part of this campaign will be to get women interested to submit what is going on in your circles, it is your paper and if you contribute, there is equal space for each - male/female. All groups of women - and in­dividuals if they think they could contribute something - are en­couraged to try harder to increase the number of articles of intrest to the women of the gay com­munity.

If it hasn't happened to you yet, take warning. The drug­dropping rip-off artists is here. The Nuntius received scattered reports about a spate of such in­cidents in Houston this year, and similar reports often come in from other cities. Now it's happening here again, but fortunately one victim, though preferring to remain anonymous, has come for­ward with detailed information a­bout his own case. The victim whom we shall call Bill met a ' young man in the 'yotl name it bar'. Bill describes him as a white male, about 24, dark brown hair, light brown must­ache well dressed. He spoke with a slight accent, not native of the Midwest, and called himself"Ray, from San Antonio." The two talked for some time, the young man speaking fami_liarly of several other gay bars 111 the city. After arriving at Bill's apart­ment "Ray" asked for a drink, and insisted that Bill drink with him. He mixed his own, thenasI:ed to taste of Bill's. At some po111t in this exchange a powerful drug, probably chloral hydrate, was dropped in Bill's drink. He awoke several hours later to a devastated apartment. The stero, TV, expensive Nill;on camera equipment, the best Jewelry, and cash were missing - - a total loss of over $5000. Some of the missing items had little re-sale value and were prob­ably taken on a personal whim of the thief - -things like record al­bums (Streisand and Baez only) and a souvenir Filipino knife. Unlike many other victims of similar crimes, Bill prompt~y re­ported it to police. According to him the police response was good, and' a genuine investigation see!"s to be in progress. In fact one pohce inspector readily acknowledged that few gays are willing to talk to police, because of the well­founder fear of exposure and har­assment. But in cases such as this, he declared, where homosexuality is not an issue, police are anxious to apprehend the real criminals and welcome reports of such incidents. Bill's losses are insured, but he is no less eager to see the thief caught. Criminal elements of various types have always preyed on the gay community, taking ad­vantage of our too often helpless condition. Be careful of whom you take home tonight, and please let us know if you have any information about this wanted man or any sim­experiences that you might have had.
