Transcript JULY 1978 GAY AUSTIN Upfront Ginny Apuzzo should be proud of gay Texans, When the openly gay candidate for New York's State Assembly delivered the keynote address at Texas Gay Conference V last month in Dallas, she said that the gay movement today reminds her of the French during WWI. As Apuzzo explained, the French were totally convinced chat they would defeat the Germans simply because French soldiers were overflowing with "elan", "Elan" has no English cognate* but it can be translated roughly as "ardent courage". Anyway, the French marched off to the battlefield armed with heavy shields of "ardent courage". The Germans took machine guns. We know what happened te the French in WWI. We also know what happened in Miami, St. Paul, Wichita and Eugene. To. Apuzzo, every new gay rights referendum is another blast of the homophobic machine gun. She sees that the gay movement rises courageously --brimming to the soul with elan--trying to shield itself from every blast, only to fall in defeat. She worries that each time we rally in desperation that we do so at the expense of forming ALTERNATIVE STRATEGIES. Apuzzo says it's time that we start channeling our energies into new and positive directions. She should be proud of gay Texans because here In Texas we are beginning to do just that. Read on page 7 about the Texas Gay Task Force's plan for the upcoming legislative session (more details on TGTF's strategy next month). See pages 18-19 for more news of Texas Gay Conference V in which gay Texans from all across the state came together to learn from and inspire one another. It is just that sort of tightly knit organization being developed by TGTF which is one of the keys to the alternative strategies advocated by Apuzzo. Houston celebrated Gay Freedom Week in grand style with Town Meeting I (see page 7), Other Texas cities take note. Here in Austin we had the biggest Gay Pride Week ever -- with everything from a Gay Pride March and Rally to poetry readings and a dance. Most of the festivities were arranged by the Austin Coalition for Human Rights, the new and very active group which gave us the Breakfast Festival for Human Rights in May (see inside for photos and stories from both events)* Gay Texans have really taken the initiative in the last two months* Let's keep going strong. —Kelly Kay \ photo by Will van Overbeek What does Anita have to sing about?
