Transcript GAY PAPER OF NORTH TEXAS COMMUNITY NEWS DECEMBER 1974 Dallas / Fort Worth Vol. 1, No. 4 AN APPEAL FOR BLOOD AURA Sponsors Gay Community Blood Bank By Ken Cyr Blood Pool Chairperson A year an a half ago a tragic fire in New Orleans took the lives of more than 30 of our sisters and brothers. Severely burned survivors of the fire were rushed to local hospitals. Massive quantities of blood were needed in an effort to save their lives. An appeal went out to New Orleans citizens for blood. Many people responded .. . however, the attitude of many more was "Why should we give blood to save the lives of a bunch of perverts?" A few months ago, a Fort Worth sister was critically injured in a traffic accident and during a long hospitalization required numerous blood transfusions. Many gay people, especially from Agape Metropolitan Community Church, responded to her need by donating blood to replace that she had used. In Kansas City last month, a 21-year-old man was beaten and shot by three"queer TEXAS HAS IT ALL! If you're Gay, you should feel right al home in Texas. You can choose to live in Dike or Tairy, or perhaps settle down at Gay Hill or even Queen City. You can have either Loving or Friendship . . . or, if you're in the mood, just Trickham (pronounced trick-em). There's both a Fruitvale and a Fruit- land, but more militant souls might want to retreat to Stonewall (County) If it's entertainment you desire, you can try Browning, Comyn or Climax. But whatever you're looking for, you're sure to find it in Texas. (AU of the above are actual places in Texas and are listed in lhe Texas Almanac.) bashers." Doctors used 144 pints of blood in a futile effort to save his life. These incidents have made us painfully aware that the Gay Community must be prepared to care for its own. We can begin now to build a blood reserve that will meet the emergency needs of our community whether it is an individual crisis or a community-wide tragedy. YOU CAN HELP. Arrangements have been made with the John Peter Smith Hospital Blood Bank, 1500 South Main, to set up a blood account to be known as the "AURA Pool." Donors are needed to build up an adequate reserve. (Our immediate goal is 100 pints.) The Blood Bank is open seven days a week. 24 hours a day. for the convenience of donors. (Free parking is provided in the lot south of the hospital on every day except Sunday.) Please specify that your donation is for the "AURA Pool." Donors must be between the ages of 18 and 66. You should have eaten a meal sometime within six hours or less of your donation. The blood technician will take your temperature, blood pressure and pulse and will ask you questions about your medical historv. Blood cannot be accepted from persons who have a history of hepatitis, tuberculosis or kidney disease. You may be asked to show some form of identification: however, all blood bank records are confidential. As an incentive to donate now. the management of T.J.'s Back Door and the Other Place is offering a free pitcher of beer to every donor to the "AURA Pool." After you donate, the technician at the blood bank will give you a blood donor card. Present this card to any bartender at either bar. and you will be given your free beer. We commend TJ. for his community spirit and cooperation. WE NEED YOUR HELP NOW.. . YOU MAY NEED OURS LATER.
