Transcript Hiqhliqhts & Disappoin tm en ts By Ron Stone HIGHLIGHTS. Recently at a gathering of friends from the office, the conservation somehow had turned to the Houston mass murders. This subject seems still to be a popular one in some circles. One blond haired dude, who by the way is very proud of his German ancestry, made the comment, "Well, what else do you expect from faggots." Whereupon his date for the evening (who is a friend of mine) turned to him and said, "And I suppose all Germans kill Jews." A feeling of silence went through the room, and before the evening was over, the feeling towards Gays had improved about 100%. With friends like her on our side, awareness is surely spreading. It made me realize that people do care about our plight, and whether it is verbal or not, more and more people are becoming our defenders. DISAPPOINTMENTS. Did you ever hear the phrase, "He is his own worst enemy. "? It has occurred to me that often we are our worst enemy. You will find few critics more severe on gay people than gays themselves. They not only find fault with other gays, but it sometimes seems that we actually look for faults. Think back about how many times you have called someone an old queen, or said, "look at that nellie thing. " We need to have pride in ourselves. . . or how else can we seek respect from anyone else. Next time, if you think something bad about someone, don't say it; or better yet, say something nice instead. HIGHLIGHTS. I recently had a friend who is a hair dresser tell me that when he decided to go into that business he knew people would assume that he was gay. And even though he was gay, he still found it hard to accept in the public eye. He told me, however, that as time went on and he became established in the business, "I wasn't expected to be anything but human, and no one made any great demands." It is wonderful when a gay person finally realizes for himself that no one expects him to be anything "but human," and he knows that he can truly face the world and become a part of humanity in his own right! DISAPPOINTMENTS. An organization that is desperately working for the gay cause to help you when you need help is slowly dying for lack of funds. A URA of Fort Worth is in need of funds to help you. There are calls in the middle ofthe night, "I am in jail; can you help me? " or "I am lonely. Is there a place in the world for me. Talk to me, please. " It would be so sad if for a lack of a few dollars the answer had to be "No, we aren 't able to help you. Sorry. " They are not asking for a lot of money... a subscription to the paper would help. Collect aluminum beer cans and deliver them to the A URA office. Give a dollar or the price of a beer. You CAN help, and there is no reason why you can't. Workers are needed for the paper. Dallas is getting behind the paper, and we are planning to work towards making this something we can all be proud of. Isn 't it time you were out and doing for someone besides yourself? And, besides, this way you will be helping all of us. Helv a little or a lot. O.K.? THAT'S ENTERTAINMENT (Continued from Page II) sequel, Funny Lady, starring Barbra Streisand.) However, moviegoers can certainly stay busy. All-star disaster epics are "in" this season with Airport 1975 and Earthquake. Steve McQueen and Paul Newman star in The Towering Inferrto from Irwin Allen, the producer who started the catastrophe cycle with The Poseidon Adventure. Gold, another large-scale venture, features a fantastic mine flooding sequence and stars Roger Moore (who also returns once again as James Bond in The Man With the Golden Gun.) Warner Brothers has only one release between now and year's end, Freebie and the Bean, a comedy starring Alan Arkin and James Caan. From Paramount comes Richard Kiley as The Little Prince and David Hartman in The Island at the Top ofthe World. From Universal will be a remake of 77i<? Front Page with Jack Lemmon, Walter Matthau and Carol Burnett. On the zany side is Mel Brooks' Young Frankenstein and Phantom ofthe Paradise with Paul Williams. Other films that could be in line for an Oscar include: Agatha Christie's mystery, Murder on the Orient Express; Lenny, with Dustin Hoffman; The Klansman with Richard Burton; and The Tamarind Seed starring Omar Sharif.
