Transcript MR. SABRE' GARTH ■ Eyes that Mystify - Form - Face & Figure DIGNITY/HOUSTON STONEWALL TREATMENT CENTER PURCHASES FACILITY Stonewall, a residential treatment center for Gay parolees, probationers, alcoholics, and drug abusers, has recently purchased a new facility in Seattle. The Board of Directors announced today that the new house, a six-unit building with accommodations for twenty, allows for the openingwith a separate program, The Stonewall Training Center, a 90-day rehabilitation program for ex-offenders coming out of prison. Standing in front of the new facility (1 to r) are Stonewall residents Sharon Lehn, Sherry White, John Edwards, and David Baird, Facility Director. People by instinct are gregarious and social and have always and everywhere sought the company of their fellows. People band together to express common interests, to enjoy social intercourse and to realize common goals. For these same reasons we who are homophiles at all times and places have formed identifiable communities -- overt and covert --by whatever degree the prohibitions our larger socieites have allowed. When our homophile communities are forced by societal hostilities into secrecy, however, the positive values of human congregation are made preverse and negative and the community built upon them serves only as a temporary refuge and frantic escape from loneliness, self-hatred and despair. The onus is ours as homophiles to resist this dehumanizing of ourselves and our fellows. We must recognize and affirm the great diversity of personality, belief and proclivity that disguised by the stereotypical image of the homophile. It is hypothetical of the homophile. It is hypothet construct that has no validity. It denies the uniqueness and variety of feelings and experience which define an individual and are the basis of his rights. We are citizens, entitled by right to all of the privileges and prerogatives of our citizenship. We are human beings and claim the dignity of our humanity. To these ends we unite as DIGNITY/HOUSTON, under the following articles of incorporation: ARTICLE 1. DIGNITY/HOUSTON is a fellowship for homophiles and will serve as a locus for our friendships and recreation. ARTICLE 2. DIGNITY/HOUSTON is a forum for the open discussion of those topics, issues and problems that relate to homophiles. DIGNITY/HOUSTON will promote thoughtful use of the fran chise to achieve the full implementation of our human and civil rights. ARTICLE 3. DIGNITY/HOUSTON will foster cooperative efforts with other groups and individuals who seek the betterment of the homophile community, particularly and society generally when such efforts are within the abilities and aims of DIGNITY/HOUSTON. ARTICLE 5. DIGNITY/HOUSTON asserts that homophiles should be active, informed participants in any consideration of our condition and in any disposition of our fate. ARTICLE 6. To promote our unity and to guide our actions we of DIGNITY/HOUSTON adopt the following by-laws: Section 1. Anyone who has attended three (3) meetings of DIGNITY/HOUSTON is considered a member and is entitled to vote on all matters that come before our body. Section 2. A planning board of five (5) persons elected will guide the activities of DIGNITY/HOUSTON. Section 3. One member of this board will be a standing member and will vote only in case of a tie. The four remaining will serve terms of six months each on a staggered basis so that two members are selected every three months. Section 4. The planning board will divide specific duties and responsibilities among themselves as they see fit. Section 5. The planning board will meet as necessary, but not less than once a month. Section 6. Three (3) members of the planning board will con- Section 7. All committees will be appointed ad hoc. Section 8. Any actions of the planning board may be abrogated by the majority vote of the larger membership. Section 9. Any part or all of these articles and by-laws may be changed by the considered action and vote of the planning board and membership. BUY GAY those swingin' Babylonians Many of the sexual practices of man seem to be as old as man himself, and certainly existed in most of the ancient cradles of civilization. One of the cradles was the Tigris-Euphrates area, which gave us Sumeria and Babylonia. The first eleven chapters of. Genessis deal with this early period. Abraham came fromChal- dea, a part of the area, and brought some stories with him. What were these Babylonians like? Prof. Saggs in his erudite study tells us that the typical sexual behavior was "much the same in U &\1
