Under the requ1rcncr1t, failure to include gays after they have m.:.iae their in tcrc>s ts and concerns knO'Wn could result in the loss of a broadcaster's license. The decision folla.·Jed a t:-.·.o year review of ;:i pc­ti tion prescntC'd by the ~ational Guy Task Force and 142 othC'r gay organiz.itions. Fu."ldrurental:L:;bJ and Ghristian brolidcast.iJ outlets, who also Will l::c ub­iect to the new rules, are bLttcrly contesting the FC.'C o.e.:ision. f.bre than five vol..nres of letters ware fl.led with the Fa:: after it agreed to prq:ose the new ruling.,, and he maJority of the letters condemned g;:iys m biblical overtones.

FCC ides dow:'lplayed that position, hov;iever, as -manL'lg ooly that gays need to show that "at least dl1 r.o: <.:hurch or soir£:>thirlg fdrmally exists." FCC Chaii:man Charles Farris took the lead in m­isting th.it the FO: te responsive to gay ccmrunity r.ceds. ~iately ilfter the vote his stuff issued a press stlltG!o1t hailing the tlecis1on <LS "the esscxe f the A"OC'ric :;;ys .

CBS TRASHES GAYS by Wayde Frey CBS-'IV wallowed in an orgy of harophobla as it presented "Gay J?o...ier, Gay Politics" on "CBS Reports" Saturday night, April 26 . Harry Reasoner rrouthed the neb.ork's rabid anti-gay line when he remarked how "clis.turbing" and "troubling" the rise of gay political ~r is, as manifested i.-: the O:::tol::er !-larch on l'i'ash­ington and in the recent San Fra.'1Cisco electio:1S. You \-.OUlcl have thOught you ~e tuned in to the Christia"l Broadcasting Neb.Ork or the 700 Club. saooor.e !:etter contact the FCC for equal ti:re fron CBS. Several San Francisco gay acth·ists ~e featured, and they ~e sane, sensible, articulate, a"ld passion­ate. H~ver, the CBS i.'1tervie'1ier asked ludicrous, slanted, leading questions that displaved all t00 clearly the warped, hate-filled bi.as of Cl3S • ews against the sub1ect. of th:z: gay l!OVC!re."lt. The program inplied th~t the nuclear family is a sacrosanct, spotless ,,o­clal institution with no drawbacks and no rational crit­ics, and that perverted, psychopathic a"ld denauched "hOtro-ccxual " are a nenace to Ar:erica beco.use gay political p:h~ uill subvert our "normal" status quo. CBS (U1e Crap Broadcasting System) \>Pllld have its gullible viC\.m'S look with dread and revulsion up:)n us al:normal, shaneless, degenerate queers and to quake with fear at the thought of our increasing gay politi­cal power. At least. CBS broadcast sore excellent footage of the Lesbian and Gay Rally and !-I.arch on Washington. Six nonths after the event.

Anyone Who has voted in a party primary is entitled to attend and participate fully in that party' s precinct convention pro::ess. We urge all lesbian and gay rights suf.POrters to attend. At the precinct convention, you will oo asked to sign in. At that point you ca.'1 sign in for a particular presidential can:lidate, as a~ "un...rumtl.tted" or you can sign in mlder an issue. The rrost irrf.ortant thing is to ro electe::l as a delc.>gate to the county convention. In sane precincts, cvccyone Who goes to the precinct con­ventio: 1 bec~s a delegate to the county convention. In other precincts, you may have cat'petition. It's good to take as many friends ·..mo live in your precinct as ros­silbe. There is strength in mnnl::".ers.

"" ACLU CHALLENGES GAY UNION DENIAL Fullerton, Calif ./IGNA Lawyers of the American Civil Liberties Union arc attempting to force trustees of the ~;orth Orange County camunity college District to change a vote that rejected a harosexual club at Full0rton College. Fullerton is the hare of California senator John Briggs, author of Prop::isition 6, which ~.ould have denied errployrrent of gay teachers . Calif­::> rnia voters sou.'YJly defeated it. The college trustees refused to ratify the exis­tence of the Gay-Lesbian Sutdent Education Union, al­though stude.'1t-trustees advised the Jx:'ard of trusti:es that the organization had the legal right to organize. 1\t the regular College District nceting, ~u attorney Susan Mc'Greivey, said she could not believe that the l.x:>ard of trustee<; v.ould consciously deny the Gay-Lesbian Union ' s legal rights. "That's a bad exam­ple for the youth," she said "defying the law. " Only one trustee declined to go along with the lx:>ard and had voted to gra.'lt the club the right to use the srure facilities as other studc>nt clubs on carrp..tS. Karan Schmidt of the gay union said that, as a result of the trustee actioa, the club had been deprived of its postal address at the campus and other priv~legcs. '/lCUJ attorney a::.'Gricvey said she had supplied caro law to the trustees at state and fec.1eral level which · ruled that harosexual clubs coul<l Le legally represented on c~ . She said she hoped Lhat the tr1:1stees v.ould "carply voluntarily by the next b:>ur<l ll'CCti.ng, tv.o weeks hence" , otherwise she "v.<>uld imrediatcly go to court on the case." John Briggs was not available for comrent.

OPLN 24 HOURS BLE CONFERENCE 'DROPS ANTl•GAY EVANGELIST DALIAS, TEXAS/IG'U. Jarres Robiso~, the Dallas evengelist whose television program was canceled for several ~ last year by WF'M-1V for his anti-gay stataoonts has becn canceled again, this ti.Ire by leaders of a Baptist Bible Conference. Robison has been dropped as a featured speaker of the Bible Conference at Southv.estern Baptist Theol~ical Seminary in Fort Worth and his organization has been canceled as a co-sponsor. SOUth~stcrn President Russell H. Dilday, Jr. said he took the action because the evangelist has l:ccn placiny too nuch enphasis on politics. Robison has also invited speakers not approved by the seminary. lhe conference is one of several i;·.hich were schedul - ed after delegates to the Southern Baptists Convention split in a debate over Biblical berrancy last year. Baptist seminaries 1·me attacked in the debate. sem­inary administrators agreed to co-spo:1S0r the Bible conferences, in a spirit of reconciliation, FCC (FCC cootbued fron page 1 ) exerrpt from this provision. In a meeting of Christian broadcasters in Washington lastrrontn'. s:cc officials re­. iterated I that gay viewpoints rrust be included \o.henever gays arc attacked by ministers on the airwaves. Religious broadcasters sought to avoid the issue by excluding hatosexuality as a topic in broadcasting. That approach Wa5 acceptable by the FCC untU last r.-.::mths ruling, i.hich now will require them to rreet with gay organizations al:Oot overall prograrrrning, If these m:!etings ~e to be cont inually non- prod­uctive, FCC l awyers say, a case could be made that the broadcasters was failing to meet camunity needs. If the broadcasters refuse to meet with gays outright, that w:iuld now be grounds for inmediate license challenge, one of the ll'Ost expensi ve propositions for broadcasters. All stations rrust perform a camunity ascertai.nmo:; ~t survey at least once during their license period, i.hich lasts three years. California stations which care up for renewal as a group will make camunity surveys by this fall. 'IHE SE!'-.71'INEL, San Francisco. • Metropolitan Community Church I 914 E 8111 ST AUSTIN.

The prof­. ts v.ere donated to Gay Ccrnmity Services. Alegre rrea.'lS "happy." Tcatro Alegre rreans "happy theatre" or "qay theatre." The group is unique in this part of the country. Only in Tc4ltro Alegre do \·IC have live theatre, perforne:l by lesbiruls a'1d gays •,Jhich features original gay mate.rial. These perforrrers draw from their third ·.-.orld an<l \o.01¥31 ' s b.:ickgrounds , as \·.ell a., ft om their gay exper .iencc. One of the 1ressages that cares Uirough loud and clear in "Jotos" is that Latino gays are very nuch like their Anglo counterparts. One skit in the review shows 1'b<icnn pare;:ts reacting to the news that their son L gay with the sai-re hysterical harophobia as the A.11910 parE:>nts learning their daughter is lesbian. He.'<tor and C(X'.pany provide an evenir.g of rollick­ing fun . Their ccnedy iL sunny, not bitchy. It pro­duces laughter that is good-miturcd, not bitter. It \ is healing. Afterward, you feel invigorated and re­freshed . Sooething good has touched your soul . sare­thing hopeful and courageous. It's gay hUJTOr at its prOductive oost. Hurror th4lt makes you feel good aoout your ne.ighl:or and good cl::out yourself. The Teatro Alegre people <:ire gay, proud, and tri­urrphantly happy. Theirs b the lilx?ration of laughter. They' re glad to be alive , arid they make the audience glad to be alive, too. 'iO'. only tlmt - they make you glad and proud to be gay. Like there. "Jotos" will be perform:.'d soon at the Austin Cour.­try and at the San Antonio Country.
