(Entrance in rear) 2828 RIO GRANDE (29th & Rio Grande) Best Stud Award should have been the firstpresentation as there are so few - George B. Strait - though thought to be over the hill by some - came by his award justly - and can prove it! Can't you George? Miss Gossip Award was en- vgraved before the nominations. Yes, Joe Moon - Who else! See what not knowing how to keep it shut gets you Joe - an AWARD. The Best Couple Award went to David and Iva - taint fair - two awards to Iva - I just wonder about that - is anyone sure that this is not a "drag" fooling everyone with her "tits in the grease" bit. One thing that you all know to be true is that "between the dishes and the dousches" Iva can't keep out of hot water. The Cruiser Award - David Fleming is just like the "Thous and and One Nights" only a bit reversed "A Thousand in One Night" - and if you don't believe what you read here - check with Congeniality Award went to the one and only Paul Lewis of the Bachelors Quarters. What makes this award so appropriate is that Paul is just like The Tripple A Automobile club except the A's stand for Anytime! Anyplace! Anyone -- that is for TENNIS. To all the deserving people - stars - starlets - and those who just aspire to be something or somebody - you have been recognized by your public for what you are. Until next year when the Campi Awards are presented I must leave with you this one thought - "read this in the bathroom and if you don't like what you see you don't have to wonder what to do about it." HIGH SCHOOL GAYS UNITED is an organization for the purpose of bringing together all Homosexual high school students, and gay people under 18 years of age, female and male. A seperate segment of the gay movement is being formed because, although there are several people in the gay community who can be contacted by phone or mail, many of these do not want to become involved in any way with people under 18 for fear of being charged with "contributing to the delinquincy of a minor". The mere fact that they cannot give us the help we seek IS contributing to our delinquincy and possible self-destruction by leading us into reinforced depression and lonliness, hostility for the society that forces us to hide, and in some instances excessive drinking, drug abuse--and maybe even suicide for others. Being gay and in high school presents manyproblems,the worst of which, in my opinion, is having to hide our sexual identity. We cannot reveal ourselves without running the risk of harassment and rejection by peers and teachers, the first of which hurts more deeply. We cannot walk arm in arm with our lovers as heterosexuals do without being ostracized. A generally quite, non- joining type of person's lonliness is augmented because of the "front" he or she has to build. The outgoingclassofficerormem- ber of the Student Council is forced into a "role"-- a code of behavior dictated and reinforced by the heterosexual student body. Many popular students who do not want their homosexuality discovered may "go steady" with members of the opposite sex who are in the same limelight simply to limit suspicion and maintain a "straight" reputation; and they are miserable because they must hide their natural preference and portray a different person. Many become ashamed of their homosexuality and think it is a sickness; but, on the other hand, there are many who are proud and want it to be recognized as a lifestyle -- a way of expressing love for a person. During adolescence and early teen years, some people experience a phase of homosexuality which usually consists of a "crush" on or admiration for a member of the same sex. HSGU is not suggesting that everyone with a degree of homosexuality restrict himself or herself to a homosexual pattern; but being able to discuss one's feelings can eliminate some of the guilt and fear that may prevail at the time of coming out. Perhaps some people will discover that the heterosexual life suits .+,,em better. That is fine. But, perhaps if a group like HSGU is not within reach, a lot of confusion will still remain. Many young gay women and men get caught inthe"Butch-fem(me)" syndrome in which a person is either ultra-masculine (tough, aggressive, domineering) or super- feminine (submissive, fearful, quiet). Some people are this way from a very early age and to them, it is natural; yet others groping for security choose this as a means -- and it usually does not work out. A person simply cannot be something he or she is not. HHGU, then, is functioning for several reasons: to give homosexuals under the age of 18 a way to socialize with people their own ages, to give them a phone and/or address to contact where they know they will not be turned away because of their ages, and most of all to give them the security they need and the assurance that there ARE others like themselves who Page 2
