Immediately following the par-ade, a picnic is scheduled at Flag For the previous two years there have been GAY PRIDE PARADES PLoaklee.Hill overlooking White Rock Each person is asked to in New York City, L<>S Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago, and other cit­ies. Austin had a parade last year. But this will be a first for Dalllas. The parade celebrates the day in 1969 when New York City Police routinely raided the Stonewall Inn, at 53 Christopher Street in Greer.­wich Village. Peaceful gay patrons were put into the street as police took action against the bar's man­agement. Groups of gays gathered and barricaded the police into the bar and then began a series of protest gatherings within the nei­ghborhood. These actions led e­eventually to the formation of the Gay Liberation Front and the Gay Activist's Alliance. According to Chris McKee, ch­airman of the parade committee, the purpose of the parade is not to flaunt our sexual preferences in the faces of heterosexuals, but to show the world that we are no longer con­tent to remain in our dark closets in secret and fear. This is our way of asserting: We are GAY AND PR­OUD. One straight man at last year's parade said the same thing, bring his or her own food and be­verage. The picnic is open to the entire gay and straight communi­ties. Gay men and women from all over Texas and the Southwest will be meeting in Dallas for the week­end of June 23rd, 24th, and 25th, to celebrate the gay national holi­day- -Christopher Street Libera­tion Day. Dallas' biggest bars are planning special events for the Friday night before the parade. On the big Saturday, marchers will ga­ther at Main and Market streets to link arms, carry banners, and show the world that "we are no longer afraid." After the parade a picnic will be held on Flagpole Hill. Housing will be provided for out­of- town guests by members of the Dallas Metropolitan Community Church and the Circle of Friends. Hosts are busy planning a mad rou­nd of special entertainment for the weekend - tours of the local bars and bahts and house parties. Those There are many who can not af­ford to "come out" because of jobs, families, and personal rea­sons. But everyone can help. Mo­ney is needed. Volunteers are ask­ed to help decorate cars, floats, and making banners. WE ALL STAND TO G~IN. BRUTALITY TO GAY PRISONERS Washington prison officials were accused today of brutal harassment and morbid discrimination direct­ed toward homosexual residents of the State Prison at Walla Walla. The charges were made this morn­ing at a press conference by the directors of Stonewall, a resident­ial treatment center for homosex­ual persons in trouble with drugs , alcohol, and crime. William H. DuBay, community relations director at Stonewall, stated: "Within the prison, there are many ethnic and cultural gro­ups of every race, creed, and color being represented in some way on the Residential Government Coun­cil, except homosexuals. The at­tempts of Gay people there to or­ganize and gain protection have been completely thwarted by the Warden, Bobbi Rhay, leaving Gays without representation in the very important areas of classification hearings, parole hearings, pro­gress hearings, custody reduct­ions, or personal counselling. Ho­mosexuals at Walla Walla are sim­ply being warehoused as inferior forms of life, treated as problems rather than human beings. They have no protection against the pre­judice of other residents, the gua­rds, the administration, or the par­ole board. "In an attempt to offer a viable alternative in a qualified rehabili­tation program, Stonewall was founded. Instead of cooperating with our efforts, prison officials have refused to allow us to set up parole programs for Gays in prison--and this in spite of the fact that we are an approved parole program, and that we are approved also by the Adult Authorities of California and Oregon. "Prison authorities have gone so far as to refuse our correspond­ence and return letters ac!dressed to them. We have appealed in vain to the Governor's office, demand­ing an explanation. It seems that the government'!,admirable attem­pts at prison reform and commu­nity- based cq;rections have been overcome by sexual superstition, bias, ignorance, and fear. The government must also take the bl­ame for attitudes which foster the brutal rapings, murders, beatings, and suicides of the homosexual residents of our state prisons." _ _,__~------- Dr. Frank Kameny was fired from his government job as an astro­nomer on the grounds of his homo­sexuality-- this despite his govern­ment rating of "superior." (Can America afford to lose her best scientist because of such silly­assed bias?) Since that moment, Frank has been a giant in the Gay Movement. It's been said of him, "He is the nation's most per­sistent thorn in the sides ofbovern­ment with respect to homosexuals what Ralph Nader is to General Motors with respect to automobile safety. This remarkable gay leader taught himself to read at the age of 4, entered college at 15, and faught for all our freedoms in World War II. After the war, he returned to his studies and re­ceived his Ph.d. degree from Har­. vard. It was Kameny who coined our gay national slogan GAY IS GOOD! This brilliant leader helped organize the first White House picket line in 1965. Although not a lawyer, lawyers and law journals often consult him. Kameny was the first self­declared gay to run for Congress, as a nonvoting delegate to the . House of Representatives in 1971. • He ran, not expectirig to win the office, but to force politicians to pay attention to the government's treatment of gays. · • wishing housing should call 824- 0770 ,po, uri- in 0.llas. 1 OUR COl\lMUNITY NOThiN(j hUMAN is AlieN TO us \'- PAGE 2 EVERYONE'S FUN HOUSE PRESENTS THE BEST I N THE AREA IN THE ART OF FE~ALE IMPERSONATION: SONG, DANCE, SATIRE AND RECORD PANTOMINE !

Joining Dr. Marmor andDr.An­onymous on the panel were Dr. Kent robinson, Dr. Robert Seidenberg and gay activists Frank Kameny. and Barbara Gittings. The dia­logue hit hard at the dissemina­tion of psychiatric propaganda. Approximately 200 professionals made up the S.R.O. audience. Dr. Kameny challenged those present to apply true scientific methods in their psychiatric studies and re­commended a good course in gay pride for those who seek " the­cure.'' gated the profession for creating the problems of homosexuals, then making money out of "curing them." "We have made diversity a sin," he said and lampooned the mental health game as played in 20th Century psychiatry. Barbara Gittings charged the A. P.A. with attempting to avoid con­frontation while calling it discre­tion and called for dialogue between professional gays and the other IJlembers of the profession. Many of the psychiatrists pre­sent in the audience rose to speak after the formal discussion ended, making impassioned appeals to th­eir collegues to see gays as human beings and 00:ck efforts toward con-' sentual legislation reform. For the first time in many years the A.P.A. agenda failed to present any papers on homosexuality. This was doubtless a direct result of Gay Liberation Front - zaps in the past which have insisted "We are the experts on homosexuality." ftte Rod Roddy late night talk show hosted several members of the panel and Barbara Gittings also assisted in the filming of a video tape on Gay Lib., The tape is one of 5 parts of a series titled Search for Mental Health for release to Universities and Medical Schools. Receiving excellent response and heavy interest traffic during the entire A.P.A. convention was the Gay Lib. exhibit booth, GAY, PROUD ANDHEALTHY;theHomo­sexual Community Speaks Out. Manned by local gays and the visit­ing G.L.F. group, the booth was sp­onsored by anonymous gay psych­iatrists. It was the only booth to use the word "love" formally and presented opportunity for rap ses­sions and literature distribution. The booth consisted of an ela­borated collage panel featuring Christopher Street Liberation Day celebrations, gay activism, gaY., love-ins, famous gay couples and a panel especially aimed atpsychia­trists. Dr. Judd Manmor, vice presi­dent- elect of the A.P .A. states, "there is nothing sick or unnatural about homosexuality except that it is socially condemned." His re­marks were also made during the Dallas meeting.

The gay community nation-wide should soon see the beginnings of responsive action and increasingly feel the benefits resulting from this conference. .BOY S IN THE S-AND ::--- .-::::::: Hats off to DEAR ABBY! Abigail Van Buren recently had the following in her Dear Abby coh1mn in the Houston Post. DEAR ABBY: Recently you printed a letter from someone who claimed to be a "well adjusted homosexual." There is no such thing as a ·well-adjusted homosex.ial; the two terms are antonymous. Homosex. uality, male or female, is a form of sexual deviation which is sym­ptomatic of personality disorder. By any reasoi{able standard of human development, homosexual­ity is an adnormal human condition which needs cofupetent profess­ional treatment. It is in effect a form of emotional illness. I think that you would be as interested as I in what your readers think about the subject. HAPPY HETEROSEXUAL DEAR HAPPY: By whose def"m­ition is homosexuality an illness? There are homosexuals who live socially well-adjusted, discreet, personally happy lives, whose homosexuality would come as a surprise to many of their close heterosexual friends. The fact that homosexuality is morally condemned by most people in our culture makes it seem ab­normal. In other times and in - other cultures it bas not always been so judged. Much of the maladjustment seen in homosexuals is due to the re­jection, persecution and guilt im­posed upon them by intolerant and ignorant contemporaries. (Editors comment - Hats off to Dear Abby - !!) DEi4R ABBY The odd couple Dear Abby: p□About four months ago, the house across the street was sold to a "father and son" -- or so we thou­ght. We later learned it was an older man about 50 and a young fellow about 24. This was a respectable neigh­borhood before this "odd couple" moved in. They have all sorts of strange looking company. Men who look like men, blacks, white , Ind­ians, and yesterday I even saw two nuns go in there.· They must be running some sort of business or a club. There are motorcycles, expensive sports cars and even bicycles parked in front and on the lawn. They keep • their shades drawn so you can't see what's going on inside but they rrrust be up to no good, '?r why the secrecy? We called the police department" and they asked if we wanted to pr­ess charges. They said unless the neighbors were breaking some law there was nothing they could do. Abby, these weirdos are wreck­ing our property values. How can we improve the quality of this once­respectable neighborhood? UP IN ARMS Dear Up: You could move. WIL SCHAEFER Open To Gays □□ Wil Schaefer, deposed as a United Metliodist minister by a church court more than a year ago in San Antonio, has found his way back into a religious denom­ination. But he had to invent one to do it. In a news conference held in a "gay bar" in San Antonio Friday afternoon, Schaefer announced the wheat Wine Mission Ecumenical Church as the newest denomina­tion in the state. And Schaefer is the self-appo­inted bishop. He has been at odds with the United Methodist Church since he was ousted by a 13-member jury of clergymen who found him gui­lty of immorality, disobedience and unbecoming conduct. HE.WAS DEPOSED --not expel­led from the church - - for refusing to sever his relationship with Mrs. Judy Nash, a San Antonio divorcee, while still married to Mrs. Schae­fer. Since the court decision, Schae­fer and the former Mrs. Nash have lived together on a farm south of Luling, Texas. She gave birth to a son last February. The couple was legally married in May. The new church, Schaefer told The Houston Post, was granted a charter by th e office of the Tex­as Secretary of State May 17. He said he waited to make the an­nouncement of the new denomina­tion until th e end of the annual meeting of the Southwest Texas Conference of the United Methodist Church this week in San Antonio. That was the conference Schae­fer was in before he was deposed. The Southwest Conference has been faced with the issue of homo­sexuality which was forced on it by F. Euegne Leggett, who has pub­licly announcee his homosexuality.

"WE KNEW the church would do . what it has done, refuse to talk to people like Gene Leggett," Schae­fer said. "We had hoped it would make a place for people like him and me." Schaefer, who is a friend of Leg­gett, said: "If Gene is a homosexual that's his business. But if he's a man of compassion and truth he meets our standards. The people of the church are neither compass­ionate nor truthful, so they have forced us to start a denomination." "The meeting this last week was the last straw," Schaefer said. "We saw the church was hope­less." The new denomination has three board members, Schaefer ,his wife, and a San Antonio psychoamOyst. It has three priests, one named on abbott, who remains at the farm near Luling (now called the Mon­astery), a black priest (formerly head of the state Student National Coordinating Committee) and a PAGE 3 X \ ) their marriage. Marriage is a per­sonal matter between two people." Schaefer said a priest of the de­nomination would have to decide if the two homosexuals were entering into a "truly spiritual marriage." If a priest of the denomination chose to marry two homosexuals, "I'd support him," Schaefer said. "I CAN'T SAY that two homo­sexuals getting married is not mo­ral. I can't do that. It's not for me to say," the bishop said in a tele­phone interview. Wheat Wine Mission Ecumeni- ' cal Church will begin with a head­quarters temple in San Antonio, Schaefer said. He expects to ex­pand the church throughout the nation "as far as people need a church to serve their needs." Counseling clinics for drug and alcohol abuse and marriage prob­lems will be set up, and a retreat center in Southern Mexico and the farm near Luling will be part of the denomination's offerings.

GAY - PROUD & HEALTHY In recent years, an adversary situation has developed between the psychiatric profession and the homosexual <·,,mmunity. While much of psychiat,·.v seems unaware of this, il is felt with growing resentment and bitterness by the homosexual community, who in­creasingly see psychiatry as THE major enemy in a battle against deeply- rooted social prejudice, and see psychiatrists as singul­arly insensitive and obtuse to the destruction which they are wreak­ing upon homosexuals by their negative attitudes and pronounce­ments of both adversaries. That is that its ''researches" really are scientific. Insofar as homosexual­ity is concerned, they could not be less so. They are the distilled, concentrated essence of bad scien­ce; they are a textbook illustrat­ion of "science" gone wrong. When the psychiatric position on homo­sexuality is examined, we find that we have been DEFINED into sick­ness and pathology by cultural, social, moral, teleological and theological value judgments, cam­ouflaged and cloaked in the language of science, but with none of the substance of science. Even more irresponsible is the why we, as homosexuals, are here_ continuing refusal of psychiatry al the Dallas conferen~e of the to shoulder its proper burden in American Psychiatric Associal- any situation of bigotry;To pro-ion.

Central to the conflict between psychiatry and the homosexual community is the "sickness theory" of homosexuality and the whole related complex of negative attitudes toward homosexuality, which try to make of homosex­uality something inferior to and less desirable than heterosex­uality.

The goals of therapy of homosexuals must be subjected lo searching re-examination. Equally important as a con­sequence of psychiatric attitudes, is the fact that large numbers of homosexuals who might benefit from psychotherapy for a variety of problems unrelated to their homosexuality (which is NEVER a problem in and of itself, any more than heterosexuality is ever a problem in and of itself) will from the degrading, demeaning~ l dehumanizing (and inapplicable, in 1 this context) "anatomy is destiny" theory.

Responsible authorities assess with great care the consequences of the exercise of their authority and the validity of their positions and premises. In regard to homo­sexuality, psychiatry clearly has not done so. It is time to start doing so, or to doff the mantle of authority before it is taken from you! I In our view, it is time for psychiatry to reassess its posit­l ion on homosexuality from the , ground up. Queen Victoria has been dead for almost three-quarters of a century. Freud, brought up in the depths of a Victorian era I from which he never escaped ! intellectually, may have done ; yoeman work as a pioneer and I trail-blazer, but trails are necess­' airly blazed with lack of know- ! ledge of the whole terrain and sel­dom follow what ultimately turns out to be the optimum route.

We must recognize that one of the glories <if humankind is its endless diversity and pluralism in all things; that we are not faceless robots all turned out of the same mold, but that we follow different courses of equal value to different goals of equal value--in psycho­sexual development as in all other areas; that there is no one, single healthy course of psychosexual development. Finally, we must realize that among the glories of humankind is its brain which has liberated us so living. h umc,- Not only do we insist that­sexuals, as people, are in no way inferior to heterosexuals as people (a precept to which we are sure that most psychiatrists will take no exception) but we insist, equally uncompcomisingly, that homosex­uality- -as a condition, a state of being, a way of life or life-style, an expression of love and affect­ion- -is fully on par with and in no slightest way inferior to hetero­sexuality. We are working to create a sense of community among our people, to create, in turn, a sense of unity, solidarity, militancy, and activism, in order to assist u& to achieve our full rights and status in a society which is ours as much as it is that of the hetero­sexuals. We are working with suc­cess to create among our people a sense of pride in their homosex­uality and a sense of the right­ness of what they are and the good­ness of what they do. In order to do this , it is necess­ary lo extract homosexuality from the medical context in which it has long and persistently been placed, and to place it in a sociolo­gical context of minority group relationships involving prejudice, discrimination, and bigotry. This is the only context in which the real problems of real homosex­uals in our society today will be constructively and productively' addressed. It has been well and truly said that in our society there is no Black problem, there is a white problem. We say that there is no homosexual problem, there is a heterosexual problem. Psy­chiatry, as it presently deals with homosexuality, is a major part of that problem. A psychiatric profession which persists in approaching homosex­uality as a medical problem and homosexuals, per se, as patients, while homosexuals themselves, as homosexuals are busy entering politics and running for public office, is singularly out of touch with reality- -psychotically so! We are trying toopendialogwith the psychiatric profession on these questions. In past years, it has been necessary, on occasion, to resort to strong measures against a resisting profession in order to achieve such discussion of our problems with us instead of merely about us. \l'e sincerely hope that productive, constructive discuss­ion and dialog, followed by mean­ingful reform of psychiatry , will now proceed actively. Psychiatry, in the past- -and continuingly- -has been the major single obstacle in our society to the advancement of homosexuals and to the achievement of our full rights, our full happiness, and our basic human dignity. Psychiatry can become our major ally. Will you assist us? WHAT YOU CAN DO: 1. Both individually, and col ­lectively as a profession and an Association, re-examine your past positions on homosexuality. Dis­card the negative attitudes and the biases which have afflicted you in the past. 2. Work for a public renun­ciation, by psychiatry, of the "sickness theory" of homosex­uality in ANY semantic guise. 3. Undertake an active, vigorous campaign to ameliorate and ul­timately lo eliminate popular pre­judice on this question , both th rough work to change altitudes and in such specific areas as law reform, equal opportunity legis­lation, etc. 4. Consult on an on-going basis with representatives of the homo­sexual community. Our themes are: GAY, PROUD AND HEAL THY and GAY IS GOOD. With or without you, we will work vigorously toward the acceptance of those precepts, and will fight those who oppose us . We would much prefer to work with you than against you.

MADAM FERTILIZER MOTHER TO DRAG: FRIEND TO ALL HOUSTON GAY BARS HIT BY VANDALS by Henry Groves The 900 Club, 900 Lovett, was broken into in the pre-dawn hours on Thursday, May 25, 1972. Robbers made a small hole through two walls to gain entry and to make their exit. They stole whiskey , vodka, and other liquor worth about $60 or $70. plus money out of the jukeboxes, pooltable and cigarette machine. The vandals also took records out of the juke­boxes, cigarettes out of the cigarette machine, and a few odd things such as fruit and napkins. Not content to demolish both jukeboxes, the thieves also broke ba r glasses and poured sugar all over the back bar. The Briarpatch, Greenbriar at Holcombe, was robbed by two gun­men at 1:30 a.m., Friday, May 26, 1972 . .;"'::'us tome rs and one bartend­er, Mickey, were in the Briar­patch at the time. Witnesses were divided as to whether the pair, one Negro and one White, were in their early 20' s or in their middle to late 20's. All eleven persons were herded into the womens restroom, about the size of three telephone booths. (Absolutely no familiarities were attempted, we understand) The customers were not personally robbed. G.9unmen helped themselves to cash on top of the bar and in the register. One customer lost $15. on top of the bar. About $100. was in the cash register at the time of the robbery. As the gunmen left, they apolo­gized to the bartender, saying that they were sorry but that they had to support their "habit." The police were called, but the gunmen escaped. On May 31 the bartender and another man identified the two gunmen in a police lineup. Police told them that the pair had been involved in quite a few other rob­beries, including one on the Sul­livan Island Club, Rice Boulevard, in which about $2100. was taken. The Cobra Club, 905 Woodrow, reports that they have been rob­bed five times in the past few weeks. The last of these break-ins was just a few days ago and appeared more vandalism than just for the funds in the vending machines. The machines were robbed, the pool table and juke box torn up beyond repair. Some of the boys "gowns" were strewn about the dressing room and pwoder poured over them. Liquor was taken and on the mirrows behind the back­bar messages were left for some of the employees as well as the owner which would indicate that this vandalism was done by some­one familiar with the club and its operation. • WHOOO READS THE NUNTIUS?

Among other things, they demand the right lo be jus t as amorous in public as boy and girl couples. " If I want to kiss my boy friend and hold hands in public, I don 't see why that should be illegal," says Malcolm Bissett, a 20 -year­old Scottish homosexual. He is a member of a protest movement called the Gay Liberation Front - -GLF. The GLF wants Britan to give homosexuals the same legal rights as everyone else. While many people in other coun­tries consider Britain's 1967 law on homosexuality extremely lib­e ral, the militants don't see it that way. The landmark 1967 Act of Parl­iament, p receded by a lively nationwide debate, legalized homo­sexual acts in private by consent­ing adults. It was intended not to condone homosexuality but to free adult homosexuals from police har ass­ment and blackmail. Four U.S. states - - Colorado, Connecticut , Illinois and Idaho - - have sim­ilar laws. With the 1967 Act , Britain came a long way from the 16th century law of Henry Vlll grouping homo­sexuality with heresy and witch­craft - - a ll punished by death - - anct an 1861 law changing the maximum to life imprisonment. But British GI.I· militants com­plain that even \\hen there is mutual eonsenl and pri, 1C). the t967 law still providl's for im pr isonment of up to five ) ea rs fo a homosernal :) , or older if he has relations with a y Hltl" man 16 to 20. For ~t•,ual re lat on, "ith a bo) under 16 the max1murr penalty is life imprisonmPnt. The militants \\anl lhe age limit dropped from 21 lo t6 -- the same "age of consent" as for hetero­sexua ls. And they want freedom from a lleged police harassment of homosexua ls who show a ffection in public. "The 1967 law didn't go far enough , although it was a s tart," contends Tony Smythe, general secretary of the National Council for Civil Liberties, a liberal group. "There are still many homo­sexuals suffering from guilt and loneliness because their r elation­ships ar~ illegal or socially frown­ed upon." Says the Rev. Michael Butler, an Anglican clergyman who coun­sels homosexuals: " The 1967 law helped make society more sym­pathetic, especially when people saw that the bill was supported by the churches. But people forget that there have been centuries of society being conditioned against homosexuals." The Rev. Mr. Butler works for the Samaritans, a charity that tries to talk people out of suicide. A growing number of the depressed people who come totheSamaritans are homosexuals, he says. They call themselves " gay", but he finds they're often sad -­s uffering from loneliness, shame a nd self-hatred. There are no precise figures on their number s.

Britian's total population of 55 million. The GLF now claims a mem­ber ship of 1,000 th roughout the country, with branches in 13 cities. Its weekly London meetings and demonstra tions ca lled " gayins" draw some 300, it says. The first public dance in Britain for homosexual men and women was organized in London in 1970 by the GLF and 750 attended. About one- fifth of GLF's mem­bers are les bia ns, and they are considered its most radical in­fluence. In contra st, their American " sisters" have broken away from male homosexual pro­test groups. Although Britain is more tole­rant than many other countries, the GLF claims that homosexuals get turned down for many jobs purely because of their homosex­uality. But the Rev. Mr. Butler of the Samaritans suspects that homo­sexuals often use this as an ex­cuse when they' re rejected for other reasons. "Leading a double life, hiding their secret from their parents, makes them almost paranoid in many cases, and they read too much. into a situation," he says. "It makes for a ghetto men­tality . They get more obsessed with their homosexuality until gradually their personalities deteriorate," he adds. "I try to get them to go out more into • straight' society." London's "gay ghetto" includes a notorious movie house near Vic­toria train station, public toilets, parks and a group of pubs in the low rent Earls Court district where homosexuals have furtive encount­ers. "A sexual meat market," the London Times calls these places . The GLF and another group called Campaign for Homosexual Equality have tried to organize social clubs that would offer better places to meet. But in some cases, such as the English town of Burnley, offended local citize11s have pressured land­lo rds not lo let them in, the National Civil Liberties Council says. The mil itants say it's wrong to call homosexuality a sickness. They've demonstrated against Bri ­ti sh psychiatric clinics that use elect r ic shocks and na usea-pro­ducing chemicals as an "aver s ion therapy" to treat homosexuals. The GLF uses str eet theater , Hyde Pa rk pinics and other ac ­tivities to drive home the s logan: "Gay is Good." The group has had several set ­backs, but feels its activities are starting to a chieve a main purpose : to " liberate" the ashamed homo­sexuals known as "closet queens" and help them shake off their guilt. GAY GETS SECURITY BACK Reprinted from the Houston Chron­icle May 28, 1972. Washington - A federal judge has ordered the Defense Department to restore the security status is had revoked from an avowed homo­sexual. U.S. Dist. Judge John H. Pratt issues an order and an accompany­ing memorandum stating that a person who admits to practicing homosexuality canr1ot be barred from handling secret defense information. Benning Wentworth, an employe of an electronics firm under a defense contract, had his clear ­ance lifted under a guideline block­ing clearance of people who have engaged in "any criminal, in­( amous dishonest or notoriously disgraceful conduct or sexual pro­version.

NASHVILLE'S OWN PERT, PRETTY & PETITE! GAY GADFLY A new sophistication. There can be no question that the phrase is complimentary. In the context of what are irre"erently referred to as "cock danglers," it is deserved --to a degree. There is color, which serves to highlight the nesh tones of the danglers, both black and white. And no longer is precious film foot­age wasted on said danglers' doff­ing their clothing and getting down to basic essentials. Even the sound is sometimes synchronized with the lips. And what comes out con-veys the impression that it is con­tained in a script. A fairly recent example of new sophistication in filming of dang­ler~ was something called Come of Age. Even that title appealed to something above the belly-button. Not like those numerous other epics which are little more than plays or ploys upon words. The Magnificent Cowboys, for example, probably owes a credit to Mid­night Cowboy. But to get back to Come of Age. To have filmed it without color would have been criminal. What the four guys had to say to and about, came across credibly. And, as for what is still--euphu­istically or euphemistically, loser's choice--referred to as "male action," better more than not enough.

So I should not be surprised to learn that the Mini­Park's business during the week's showing of Come of Ace fell off considerably. And there will always be a segment of the gay community which will depend for its jolies on hard-core films. But I should like to suggest several ideas which more respon­sible members of the gay com­munity might find worthy of their consideration. First of all, the cinematic seq­uence of sex acts between two male animals is just about as formal and mannered as a Mardi Gras ball. And after a while, as monotonous- -except that Mardi Gras occurs only once a year. The fact that the human face most often need not even be filmed and below-the-belt areas are zoomed in upon vindicates the above use of animals. Then there is the other and more important aspect of group or community responsibility. To the degree that the gay community is being accorded those rights which each member of that community can always have legitimately claimed for himself; tothatdegree each one of those members must be willing to sacrifice himself for the community as a whole. Yes, I mean self-sacrifice: a willingness to see in fellow gays something far more important and lasting than bodies upon which one can groove for minutes or hours or days that must always end--very A sure sign of that maturity of which the straight community has claimed that gays are incapable, is to live for· others as well as for oneself.

Dear Dr. Brothers: I'm 19 and I'm afraid I'm frigid or homo­sexual. I've never had any homo­sexual experiences and I don't really think I'm really attracted to women, but something must be wrong as I don 't get any real kicks from men. 1 can't seem to fall in love--! don't even think I know what it means. I've had sex­ual experiences with a number of young men and frankly they've all been very disappointing. Maybe I expected too much but, so far, sex is a big bore. -- S.T. Dear S.T.: Many psychiatrists report that your complaint is being heard more and more frequently, especially from young people. I would guess that one of the rea­sons this is true is that sex is becoming too routine and too dis­associated from tenderness, affection and love. In other words, it is becoming little more than a mechanical act. If curiosity is the only reason for intercourse, it is not surprising that it should be disappointing. You admit that you've not" fallen in love" and yet you've had "a number" of sexual experiences. For one thing, you may be rush­ing into sexual experiences before you have any real emotional desire for physical closeness. Ideally, sex comes as a result of a feeling of emotional close­ness and it is the climax of a love relationship. By persistently rushing into sex before you have an opportunity to feel other forms of closeness, you may be blocking yourself off from an opportunity to get to know someone on another level. To achieve the ma!(imum of •sexual enjoyment there must be some emotional involvement. Unfortunately, in our permissive society, many young people today do not have the emotional skills Declares Sex a Bummer necessary to allow them a reward­ing, satisfying sexual relationship. Don't worry about being homo­sexual, since you don't seem to have any inclinations in that direct­ion. It is also highly unlikely that you are frigid. You are simply placing unrealistic demands on your body by trying to separate it from the rest of your being. You are demanding that your body work and perform in a certain way even though you have no feeling to go with the performance. Your body, rejecting sex because it is totally separated from tender feel­ings, refuses lo give you the plea­sure you expect. It is also possible, of course, that you have some strong feel­ings of guilt about sex that have been carried over from childhood. You may feel that what you're doing is morally wrong even though you have managed to bury this feel­ing deep in your unconscious. POLITICIANS Respond to Gay Questionaire In previous years the Circle of Friends has been an educational and social organization. This year, members decided to roll up their sleeves and become politically ac­tive too. Almost 300 questionaires were sent to candidates of local, state, and national offices. The Circle of Friends expectedmostof the questionaires to be routinely discarded, many to be returned with negative and hate-filled ans­wers, only a few to be returned by candidates willing to work for gay equal rights. Surprisingly more questionaires were returned than expected.

MIXED DRINKS Under New Management C£anf¥' on one Movie Review The odds are usually against the young indie filmmaker who attempts to launch his own film and cards are even more stacked if the filmmaker is attempting a breakthrough of sorts, especially in the hardcore porno field. In that light, the makers of "Boys In the Sand" seem to have man­aged the impossible. "Boys In the Sand" was pro­duced by Marvin Shulman, a theatrical accountantJand written, directed, shot and edited by Wake­field Poole, former legit dancer and assistant choregrapher to Joe Layton on such shows as "George M" and "Do I Hear a Waltz". Poole lensed it on Fire Island last summer without any real thought of theatrical release. One of the foremost points of the film is "Casey Donovan," who looks like a liberated Robert Red­ford. The second is that he is mated with men who, by way of the • story lines, are exotic contrasts to him: one lies on a seaweedy beach while Casey comes from the water as a sea god; a black tele­phone repairman strolls in the vicinity of Casey's beach house and sitar music helps us see him as an exotic interloper; and a black­haired man is generated, like a genie, from a pill Casey drops in his pool. Third in the catalog of its vir­tues are the soupcons of visual effort which occur when sexual interest threatens to flag: the am­ber, knobby handle of the black's screwdriver protrudes from his equipment belt, counterpointing his anticipated black equipment, for instance. And fourth, there is a rare consideration for the audien­ce's delicate, aroused condition. The segments don't end joltingly - -as if the film broke - - like other pornos. Rather, there's a self-conscious but considerate at­tempt to wrap up each segment with a twist. One of the tales involves Casey's sending an in­quiry to a "wanton ad" in Gay and receiving back a pill in a box. Casey throws the pill into the water, and it fizzes and becomes a mate. After true sex and love, the two walk arm in arm and pass another sitting on a rail on the boardwalk. This other one is read­ing the wanton ads too, and walks away too, and we are supposed to anticipate the same future for him as has been experienced by the first two. /1 J I ;i 1--~- GA YS GO TO DEMO This will be the first time in history that Gays have banded to­gether for an acjion of national significance.

Three-thousand psychiatrists - - about half those present at the convention - - visite(I the gay booth. Gays staffing the booth distributed literature on homosexuality, in­cluding a leaflet written for the purpose ( which is printed elsewhere in this edition of the Nuntius.) Wednesday evening, May 3, Phil Jensen of Dallas' Circle of Friends and Dr. Franklin Kameny danced together at the psychiatrists' ban­quet and dance in the Statler-Hil­ton. Comment to the dancers was minimal; the head of one of the regions of the APA thanked them for their presence, MARCH WITH US IN THE GAY PRIDE PARADE - DALLAS -­SATURDAY, JUNE 24 - - - • - & THURSDAY 9 EDlTORIAL: Methodists anti-gay, anti-sex One thousand delegates ~o the Me­thodists General Conference held in Atlanta, Georgia in late April have decreed: "Homosexuals, no less than heterosexuals, are per­sons of sacred worth, who need the ministry and guidance of the Chu­rch in their struggles for human fulfillment, as well as the spirit­ual and emotional care of a fel­lowship which enables reconciling relationships with God, with others and with self." However, the "practice" of ho­mosexuality was condemend by the Church as being "incompatible with Christian teaching." In other words, it's alright tobe gay - just don't have sex. When straights give up sex, gays might consider doing likewise. Until then, who needs this kind of "min­istry and guidance?" ti/ 11 I . j · proudly pre: "THE FUN-. plus gu Bll..LIE McALLISTER RECORD ALBUMN % 2621 Throckmorton • Apt l 36 Dallas, Texas 75219 Please send __ copies at $5.98 TO:--------------------- Include $1.00 for postage on each record.

The LaSalle College administra­tion has perpetrated upon this au­dience and upon the gay minority in its midst, an irresponsible and immoral act. We are here to de­nounce the administration for lend­ing its official support to anti-ho­mosexual sentiment on this campus and for further contributing to the suffering of homosexuals in this academic community. And we are here to tell this audi­ence of some1hing Dr. Hadden knows nothing about. Gay pride and gay liberation are alive and well and flourishing in organiza­tions on campuses and in towns large and small across this nation. Dr. Hadden cannot "treat" this burgeoning, healthy movement and make it go away. The day of ex­ploiting guilt and fear is finished. The new homosexual has rejected this wickedness. No longer does the doctor know best about homosexuality. We assert that WE are the authorities and ex­perts on homosexuality. Bigotry, not the people victimized by bigo­try, is what needs "therapy." We propose that this audience ask Dr. Hadden to address him­self tonight to the RELEVANT topic of "BIGOTRY: ITS CAUSE AND CURE"(citing parental in­fluences, percentage of changes, edifying anecdotes, etc.) rather than tell of conversions of those unfortunate gay people who have succumbed to his and society's brainwashing. Whether .you are gay or straight, we invite you to watch the David Susskind show this Friday and Sat­urday nights on Channel 12--a show that tells of gay pride, gay self- '!; respect, gay love, and·gay libera-tion for bolh gay men and gay •o­men. We also invite you to meetings of the GAY ACTIVISTS ALLIANCE of PHILADELPHIA, every Tuesday night at 8:00 at the Univ. of Penna. Christian Association, 36th and Locast. The meeting on December 14 will be a special coffee hour/ discussion of the Susskind show. With us you will find gay community spirit---gay brotherhood and sis­terhood and the self- respect and innate goodness that Dr. Hadden, in his vast ignoranceofgaylibera­tion, cannot tel you about.

Police indifference to those who commit violence against faggots is also noQJing new. A recent incident of such violence and indifference, how­ever, is about to make a very interesting court case in New York City. It all started on the evening of Saturday, April 15, when a con­tingent of demonstrators from the Gay Activists Alliance (GAA0 in­vaded the allual celebration of the Inner Circle. This event, as New York Post columnist James Wech­sler described it, was "a not very exclusive affair sponsored by the city's active and retired political writers and City Hall reporters and attended at $100- a-head by a variety of public officials, politicans, press agents and assorted entreprenerus." The gay people had come to protest media oppression, includ­ing a recent Daily News editorial urging that homosexuals be denied employment in city jobs. Thegay's plan was to hand out leaflets and express a protest over the micro­phone. When the protesters' presence became known, however, several burly types responded by punch­ing and kicking. Several GAA mem­bers were the victims of this in­credibly brutal assault. Former GAA president Jim Owles was severely cut around the eye. Lead­ing the charge of these two-fisted heterosexual American males was Michael Maye, head of the fire­man's union (and a former boxing champ). The cops stood by and did nothing except to encourage the violence against the gay people. Since the incident, seven victims of the violence, in association with GAA, have gone to the district attorney to ask that May!! be ar­rested for assault. But it seems that Maye will attempt to file counter-charges, and there's no saying how things will turn out. Incidents of this type usually end up as a legal stand-off, as it is difficult to prove who started a fight (blatant ass<IJ!lt of course is not "a fight," but Maye is already charging aggression by the gay people). Besides, gay: people are usually in the closet and are un­likely to want to go to court for any reason -- and it's always a good bet that a homosexual will not get fair treatment in a court­room. At this writing, it is impossible to predict who will be named by the district attorney as "complain­ant" and who as "defendant." Wil­liam Kunstler, who is one of the lawyers in the case, predicted that the district attorney might move first against the gay people. He said that "anything to take the heat off Mike Maye will be done." A few years ago, there wouldn't be any question about a jury siding with smiling, rough-and-tough Mike Maye. Chances are still pretty good that a man like Maye has a much better chance at re­ceiving justice than a bunch of indiscreet faggots. indiscreet faggots. But the gay people are going to make a fight for it. Emily J. Goodman and Harold Wiener, two of the GAA attorneys, have already said thay will challenge members of any jury dealing with the case on the basis of jurors' attitudes toward homosexuality. A true trial by jury of peers would involve an all-gay jury - - obviosuly an im­possibility. But perhaps jurors' n :>a > < >z :a 0 C.... m who are blantantly sexist can be eliminated. (Prosecution attorneys will probably attempt to eliminate any gay jurors, too.) Four city officials have already promised to testify on behalf of the GAA people, though a popular figure like May may be getting together a lot of people in his camp, too. The city officials who say they'll support the gay com­plainants are Leonard N. Cohen, dep~ty borough president of Man­hattan; John P. Scanlon, assistant administrator of the Economic Development Administration; Dave M. Grant, director of public affairs for the Housing and Development Administration; and Ethan Geto, press secretary to the Bronx borough president. Geto spoke at a GAA press con- PAGE 15 ference May 1 and told · of hi::; "shock" at how police had "adamantly refused to take any action whatsoever, loudly pro­claiming their protective feelings for Mr. Maye."

We wish to an­nounce the start of an entirely new project that with it brings the realization of obtaining the facilities we have dreamt about for over three years. This new project, the MONA­STERY BUILDING FUND, repre­sents a vital step in placing our parish in a position of progress. Daily in our lives we see things change; that which might have been practical in the past is now near obsolete. Many of us can recall when our small chapel was able to fill the needs of the parish; today, of course, the facilities and cramped and room for activities, new seminarians, and worship are lacking. Thus we undertake this project to become not only more efficient, but to provide more ser­vice and convenience for you our friends and our parishioners. We are not employing profess­ional fund-raisers, thus, we believe this method will increase the efficiency of your parish many times over in the immediate future. Thus, it will also allow your pri­ests fo do the job they were ordained for: "To bring God into your lives." The most important element in our project is YOU! The best methods in the world are useless unless YOU take an active part in making them work. We ask you and your friends to be as generous as possible in your offerings. Those donating $25 or more will have their names inscribed upon a special plaque which will hand in the church vestibule. Memorials in memory of loved ones are also available upon request. The pro­jected goal for this project is $75,000.00! Only together can we make it a success! The future of our parish, your monument to and for posterity, is in YOUR hands, and we know that YOU will meet with understanding the necessity of this great under­taking with the same zeal and faith you have demonstrated in the past. Sincerely, Your Father in Christ x R. Zaborowski, OSG P.S. - Kindly make your check or money order payable: Monastery of St. Gregory Building Fund Dear Rev.
