Transcript The VOLUME S NO. 2 APRIL 1974 ARSONIST(S) BURN FARMHOUSE CLUB Sunday AM March 3, at 6:55 a 4 ala rm fire destroyed Houston's largest Gay club. The Farmhouse Club, 3535 Westheimer was in the process of rebuilding for reopening on March 9th and was closed at the time of the March 3rd blaze due to a previous five the 27th of January. According to Arson Investigator Parks, "arson was the definite cause of the latest fire. Two - two gallon gasoline cans were recovered at the scene. Fire had been deliberately set at the en­trance, the front corner and the double doors leading to the park­ing lot." Parks aslo stated that, "em­ployees and connected personnel with the Farmhouse had under­gone lie-dector tests and that the results did not in any way indicate that any were implicated in the fire.,, The previous fire was not ruled arson but the arson aspect had not been ruled out and since the later blaze final ruling as to cause is pending. Mr. Parks stated that "there are two teams of investigat­ors working on the Farmhouse case and any information anyone might have to help would be kept in strict confidence. Anonymous persons who might wish to help in anyway might call the Arson Division or Mr. Howe! or Newton at the Plantation on Westheimer." This help is needed and it is the responsibility of the gay com­munity to help if possible." STREAKING - GOOD/BAD/IMMORAL? by Jim Chase "Streaking" good or bad, moral or immoral? Who cares as long as it is fun and nobody is hurt by it? In the past couple months things that might be considered strange by some, have been happening all over this great, "free" country ours. Streakers have been appear­ing everywhere, including our favorite television shows. If you didn't catch the streakers on your favorite news broadcast, or the ''Tonight Show", don't give up. Just make sure you see "Password" on April 16th. For once Texas hasn't been left out; colleges, highschools, night clubs, and landmarks have all gotten into the act. In Houston, the "Tiger Room Club" has been streaked on several occasions (once by the entire female staff of the Texas Free Press). In San Antonio, even the Tower of the Americas was streaked (March 29, 1974 issue Texas Free Press). In Corpus Christi, a male streaker dashed down the main corridor of a local high school during the noon hour. Just across the border, in Nuevo Laredo, streaking became a Mr. Emmett Newton one of the owners of the Farmhouse told the NUNTJUS: "The FARMHOUSE will be rebuilt as soon as possible and be bigger and better than ever before." form of protest for three pro­stitutes were soliciting in the downtown area, away from the city's red light district. Streaking has had its problems: Three Brigham Young Uni­versity strear.ers have been ordered to pay for clothing some­one else was wearing while they were streaking across the campus. The Provo, Utah judge decided that Page 11 MERCURY RECORDS & MARKETS GAY ALBUM r"'...,....,....,....,....,....,....,....,....,....,....,....,...,..,...,....,...,...,...,....,...,~...,....,....,....,....,...,..,.,1 I LARGE ARCADE I ~ featuring I I Movie Machines ~ I --all big screen 8mm - 25(-- I It seems that before a person can become successful, or even start on the road to success, he must first come to grips with himself. So it is with Steven Grossman, who just four years ago was student body president of Erasmus High School in Brooklyn and is now a promising artist with a debut LP, "Caravan Tonight," on Mercury .Records. ') i ADULTZ NEWS I Understanding and appreciating oneself is not the easiest chore in the world, especially when, like Steve, you realize you are a gay male in a straight world. But being gay is just one facet of Steven's personality that he now under­stands. Originally, he wanted to be an actor and had planned to study at the prestigious Neighborhood Playhouse in New York. In order to earn money for his studies, Grossman worked at Coney Island during the summer as a "stab and bagger" - - a garbage col­lector on the beach. It was during this time that Steven's lady friend had left for England telling him in no uncertain terms to get himself a bit more together. Steven soon renewed a friendship with a man who had recently become aware of his own gay persuasion, and it was through that friendship that Gross­man gained an Understanding of his personal homosexuality. Finding it increass "Ul\;l ea:,lli.g'\;,y ,),\.U.\.,c,'\l,\.'\, \,a, -<b-Tk ,.,.._;.\h, straight males, combined with a lack of money from the Coney Page 14 Island Job, Steven quit and tried to sort out things for a year. This was a difficult period for Grossman, he says now, because for the first time he experienced true love, and consequently learned about the rejection that that emotion ·often entails. He began putting his thoughts into songs, many of which appear on the album. Steven is· especially proud of the songs from that period because, as he says, "For the first time I could write what I felt and not what I thought other people wanted to hear." Several of the songs on "Car­Tonight" · deal with the problems that gays· face in a straight soc­iety: "Song To Bonnie" reflects on his leaving his heterosexual past and joining an oppressive gay lifestyle; "Out" depicts the probl­ems of telling one's parents that their child is gay; and "Many Kinds Of Love'! deals with the religious ramifications of being homosexual. Other songs deal with everyday oc­curences and events and are not limited to the gay perspective. Despite his songs and personal lifestyle, . Steven Grossman is not a crusader in the true meaning of the word. He wants to be judged as an artist who happens to be gay, rather than as a gay per­former. One main goal of Steven's is that through his writing and performing, he will be able to en­courage o~her gays to be more out front with their Pmotions in order to take full advantage of their II 708 W.
