WORTH LEADERS MEET WITH WBAP MANAGER Representatives of Agape MCC, AURA, Dallas DOB, Circle of Friends and MCC- Dallas met with Jett Jamison, manager of WBAP-TV, prior to the boradcast on NBC of "Flowers of Evil." a Police Woman episode depicting three lesbians who run a rest home and rob and murder their elderly patients. In spite of national and local protests, the offensive program was broadcast by NBC and shown locally by WBAP, Channel 5. A few changes were made by network officials prior to the broadcast and the word Lesbian was never used; however, one of the women was described as looking like a truck driver and depiction of the women as Lesbians was obvious throughout the show. Representatives at the meeting were Rob Shivers, Ken Cyr, Marlon Pate, Rev. Ron Anderson and Rev. Jim Harris. The meeting was described as cordial but not Edinburgh University (Scotland) will be the scene December 18-22 of the first International Gay Rights Congress. At least 500 representatives are expected from western Europe, Yugoslavia, Hungary, third world nations, Australia, the United States and Canada. The president of Senegal, the only head of state who has openly declared his homosexuality, has also been invited to attend, according to Congress organizer Derek Ogg, and representatives from the Soviet Union may also attend. Ogg expects an international organization to grow out of the Congress. Such an organization would be useful in applying international pressure on such groups as the United Nations and the World Health Organization and against discriminatory practices of individual nations. The Congress will include sessions on younger gays, older gays, women's rights, the media and the relation of the gay struggle io the international labor movement. Ogg began pushing the Congress after being elected president ofthe Edinburgh University Students Association on a gay rights platform. The Student Association is the official sponsor of the Congress.
