Transcript GAY AT PSYCHIATRISTS CONVENTION by Jim Archer Dr. Franklin E. Kameny of the Mattachine Society, Washington, D.C, reports that psychiatrists are growing in their understanding of homosexuality. Dr. Kameny and other gays took part in the meeting of the American Psychiatric Association in Dallas, May 1 - 5, 1972. This convention was noteworthy for the fact that it was the first conclave of the psychiatrists in many years, in which no one presented a formal paper on homo sexuality. Instead a standing-room-only crowd 300 or so attended a panel discussion entitled "Psychiatry: Friend or Foe of Homosexuals." Moderated by a psychiatrist, the panel consisted of Barbara Gittings, Dr. Franklin Kameny, Judd Marmor, Robert Seidenberg, and an anonymous gay psychiatrist who wore a mask and disguise, vividly illustrating the oppression of gays within fmrpsy^ chiatric profession itself. The panel will be reported in the June 1 issue of Psychiatric News, the official journal of the APA. Barbara Gittings and Kay Tobin designed and built a booth entitled "Gay, Proud, and Healthy: The Homosexual Community Speaks." The gay community of Dallas pitched in to staff the booth, which was displayed in the exhibit area of the conference, held in Dallas Memorial Auditorium. Three-thousand psychiatrists -- about half those present at the convention -- visited 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-Hil- ton. 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 EDITORIAL: Methodists anti—gay, aati—sex One thousand delegates to the Methodists General Conference held in Atlanta, Georgia in late April have decreed: "Homosexuals, no less than heterosexuals, are persons of sacred worth, whoneedthe 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 to be 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?" SHOWrtME - SQHV^^^L^ & THURSDAY 9 til 11 proudly pre THE FUN plus gu
