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-
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
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
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
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!
We'll help all we can but alone
it is difficult.

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
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.
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.
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.
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

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
