Title File 004
Transcript eal of the greatest men among them (Plato, Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci, etc.). It is a great injustice to persecute homosexuality as a crime, and cruelty, too. If you do not believe me, read the books of Have- lock Ellis. By asking me if I can help, you mean I suppose, if I can abolish homosexuality and make normal heterosexuality take its place. The answer is, in a general way, we cannot promise to achieve it. In a certain number of cases we succeed in developing the blighted germs of heterosexual tendencies which are present in every homosexual, in the majority of cases it is no more possible. It is a question of the quality and the age of the individual. The result of treatment cannot be predicted. What analysis can do for your son runs in a different line. If he is unhappy, neurotic, torn by conflicts, inhibited in his social life, analysis may bring him harmony, peace of mind, full efficiency, whether he remains a homosexual or gets changed. If you make up your mind he should have analysis with me (I don't expect you will). He has to come over to Vienna, I have no intention of leaving here. However don't neglect to give me your answer. Sincerely yours with kind wishes Freud" LETTERS to the EDITOR Dear Mr. Frank, I rarely resort to writing letters to the editor, but recent local newscasts compell me to do so. As a homosexual I am appaled by local TV and radio stations referral to the Dean Corll murders as "homosexual murders." Surely, in our enlightened age, and in the light of the recent classification by the American Psychiatric Association of the term "homosexual" the media knows or should know better. Let's do our homework, boys in the newsrooms. Sam Dewitt Dear Sam, We are in accord - - - what radio and TV stations are you referring to specifically? Mr. Phil Frank, I am writing to you because I am unable to get through the censoring devices of my daily paper -- The Houston Post. I am protesting both to you and to my State Representative, Ron Waters, (of the Houston Post printing art- idles regarding the tragic Dean Corll murders. The Houston Post calls this "homosexual murder ring". What right do they have to make such terrible judgements? Are we all murderers? Do we operate killer rings or advocate such practices? What right do they have to include Dean Corll in our midsts? Help me brothers and sisters to educate the Post. Call that switchboard, that circulation number and file those daily letters to the editor in your local mail box. You can use your closet phones and names, but ACT, You silent majority -- what are you doing to stop the Houston Post from re-educating a public that at one time was listening to our problems.Now they are calling an unbelievable horror story a -"homosexual murder ring". At least slip an arm out of your closet to the phone stand and whisper your plea. I'll listen to you. And believe me, enough whispers combined will be a roar and shout that will drown out the presses of the daily Houston Post grind. Use that phone --- mail --- Use it Now! Sincerelv. Bill Kemp Dear Bill, We'll help all we can but alone it is difficult. Ed. Box 999 Elmore, Alabama 36025 Dear Sirs; Some time ago I wrote to you for help and I was not refused so I write to you in hopes that you can give me help again-since I know of no one else I can write to. I am a gay prisoner in the Alabama Penal System. Hopefully I will be released from prison within the next two months. My purpose in writing to you is in hopes of obtaining some information from you. It has been almost a year since I saw a copy of the Nuntius. So I do not really know what is going on in Houston as far as Gay Life is concerned. I would really appreciate it if you could help me and send me a few of the latest past issues of the Nuntius, so that I can re-familiarize myself with Houston and what is going on there as far as the bars and activities. This would really be a great help to me. Also, I would like to know if perhaps any agencies have been organized in Houston that could help me find a job upon my return from prison to Houston. Thank you in advance for your time and consideration. I do not have any money with which to pay you for any past issues of the Nuntius, but I will be more than glad to pay you for them as soon as I am back in Houston and working. I will be looking forward to hearing from you in the near future. Love, Peace and Hope, Kenneth Neil Davidson Dear Kenneth, Look for copies of the Nuntius in the mail soon. We are happy to report the formation of a new group called Redstone. The services they are to offer will be beneficial to you I am sure. You can contact them at this time through John at the Round Table, 528-8477 or by calling John at his residence 861-2776. We hope this helps some and there is no charge for the papers. Editor. Dear Phil: It seems lately that just about everybody and his uncle is going around talking about starting another Gay newspaper. I'm one of them...and I am. After giving it several months tho- ought and about a month's work so far..I'm off with the project. There are those who say this area is not large enough for one Gay newspaper, let alone two or even three. I disagree and think the Houston/Dallas/San Antonio/New Orleans Gay communities can support two papers. The competition will' be good for all concerned. Contact will be sitting side by- side with the Nuntius on the newsstands in February. Sincerely, Henry Parker Publisher Dear Mr. Parker, Much - much luck and will be looking forward to seeing Contact. Would like very much to "retire" the Nuntius and perhaps we can work out something. Phil Frank Dear Phil, On 9/26, the photographer who advertises with you regularly, did 10 shots of me for $10.00 at a local motel, as he had dropped by the house without talking to me, only my wife...Anyway he said the photos (which I wanted for posterity) would be ready 10/1 and I have not heard from him. I made the check out to CBHP^ Since » I recently lost my position of 12 years for (in jest) saying "Nigger" have I now gotten into another mess' or, do you even know this guy. It doesn't worry me too much as my wife knows my tale & there is no one to blackmail--but would like the photos. The jH H people in Chicago loved your birthday piece as did all mv relatives ' who received one on my birthday 9/16. Sincerely B.D. Dear B.D. You should have your photos by now. Phil Dear Phil, Thank you on the articles published on the October issue on my leaving Houston. Certainly made me homesick reading about what is going on in Houston. I wanted to thank you and Houston for making me feel so wanted - either as "Buddy the Go-Go Boy" or "Mr. Cher Bono". My thoughts are with you, the Nuntius & Houston and I look forward to my return. Yous, as the editor of the Nuntius are doing a beautiful job of keeping Houston & other cities informed as to what is happening within our society. I thank you, and Pm sure Houston does too!! If they don't then they should be here in Omaha, where you have to rattle closets to see if there are any sisters around!! God bless you, and I hope you and your staff and all of our gay friends in Houston have a very Merry Christmas. Cher P.S. You could send a copy of the Nuntius Doug forgot to this month. C.B.
