Transcript o X pre-game warm-up v j SATURDAY & SUNDAY jxi. AFTERNOONS 1 TIL 4 P.M. 0 \ RONSUES / \ / GAYS UNITE to CLEAN 'QUEEN'S POINT" It was called Queen's Point, but until "clean-up Saturday" it looked more liJte Hell's Half- looked more like Hell's Half- acre. Beer cans, cigerette butts, candy wrapers, chicken bones, and broken glass littered the grassy areas and sandy beaches. To overnight campers it was like making home in the city dump. Garbage cans had been provided by the corps of engineers, but the cans ers felt little urge to put their litter in cans already overflowing. Then Myke and Bob rolled up their sleeves and organized a volunteer work detail. Two dozen people showed up with rakes and shovels and spent a happy/hard two hours cleaning up the mess that had been accumilating for years and years. The back end of a pickup truck, heaped with trash, hauled it away. Now the beach looks a lot like Nature intended it. Next weekend a gay artist has agreed to paint the cans. (Would lavender be a cool color?) Another thoughtful gay girl will make signs to place around the area to remind gay campers that ours is now the cleanest beach on Lake Dallas. No one is going to keep it clean for us. Shall we do it ourselves? tt-0TiqM b ajinb aui aifBj p|noM \x nig,, vrmofi aifl parous (/saX 'qo,, ,/ueui e nPl Pinoo no£ innifj (1£qnq 'jaano,, •T.enxasouioq sbm aq iBip, passajuoa pue pjBoq y^jp siqo^pa^jodajujno^ 3ui^ooipoo2 v Page 8 HOUSTON'S y cT by Wade Frey Dignity/Houston has elected a steering committee to structure the group and to plan future activities. The committee includes Father Mark Barron, Joe Walker, Wayde Frey, Bob Wood, Bill Buie, David Tucker and Dick Atch- ley. Bob Wood is in charge of a brunch to be held on Sunday, August 13. The brunch will be an opportunity for new and prospective members to receive information about Dignity/Houston members. Gene Leggett was featured speaker on July 16. (See "Far Out! -- Gene Leggett" elsewhere in this issue of the Nuntius.) A woman psychiatrist was scheduled to address the group on Sunday July 23. Eleven Dignity/Houston members attended mass together at Holy Rosary Church after hearing Gene speak. Then, about thirteen of the group continued their fellowship on Sunday afternoon at one of the bars. Houston Gay Liberation elected a steering committee on July 20 to plan group meetings. The eight people selected for the steering committee areSherryLipper, John Rawls, Andy Kaplan, Jim Hampton, Bob Nichols, Scott Tillinghast, and two Beaumont delegates -- Steve Smith and Sally LeDoux. Gay Lib will have a picnic at Bear Creek Park near Addixks 4 % c O * (Birds don't do it. Bees don't do it. Even Boston Beans don't do it!) This writer is a kindly, old, withered queen. A queen who was "making the scene" many, many years before anyone ever dreamed of "gay liberation" or Gay Pride | Parades. Down through the end- | less decades he has done, seen, j (or at least heard of) everything. ! But something new is sweeping j the gay world, and because of his I love for gay people, he's greatly I disturbed. This anxiety is caused i by .... Fistfucking. We are reluctant to put down anybody's idea of fun. But surely this must be scraping the very bottom of the barrel. Is one so desperate for new thrills that one must endanger his body? Oh we know, "Different strokes for different folks.'' Different strokes we don't mind. But this is so frantic --so very dangerous, we must warn against it. From the recent issue of The Dam on Sunday, August 6. 25 people werepresentatHous- ton Gay Lib on July 18. This was the largest attendance in about a year. Andy Kaplan played "the Troy Perry record album "One God;" Mike Bird showed his colorful and interesting slides of Gay Pride Weekend in Dallas (June 24); and then the people divided up into four or five consciousness-raising (discussion) groups. Quite a few people have called The Montrose Gaze phone No. 522- 5226 to find out what this group is doing. The Montrose Gaze is an organization of gay men and women who Advocate, a practicing internist says: "Fistfucking is dangerous. I don't want to sound like I'm putting anyone down, Maybe if someone does it gently, itisnotnecess- airly disastrous. However, I just saw a boy yesterday who had let someone violently fistfuck him, and today he is in the hospital, and it's going to take six months to repair the damage. I'm sorry. The guy who did this is a criminal. "You see, most people have little understanding of this. You only have nerve endings in the three-fourth inch around your sphincter. Beyond that, you can't feel pain, only pressure. You could put your hand up someone's ass and cut them with a knife and they wouldn't feel it beyond that three- fourth inch." So dear youth, listen to this old queen. Listen to him because he loves you. It's dangerous. Don't do it. Don't. Don't. Don't. Don't. 4 % S> are planning a gay communtiy center. The Montrose Gaze has about 9 people who are active members of the group. They will host a benefit dance at SLUG'S at 3910 Garrott, on Sunday, August 20 to raise funds for the proposed center. Tickets are $1 in advance and $1.50 at the door. Come by 225 Marshall #112 to buy your advance tickets or get a roll of tickets to sell and help raise funds. All ages are welcome. Urgently needed is an answering service for 522-5226. Anyone with an idea as how to solve this problem please contact us. jCjod Sfoves QJou. r. ....So^oQAye !
