Transcript news September_197S GAY AUSTIN 5 MCC DEDICATES BUILDING The Metropolitan Community Church of Austin dedicated Its building 614 E. Sixth Street August 6. Jeff Bishop, worship coordinator for Austin's MCC since the spring, was officially installed as Interim Pastor of the church by the Rev. Don' Eastman, assistant coordinator of the South Central District of UFMCC and pastor of MCC Dallas. THe South Central District includes congregations in Texas, Louisiana, Arkansas, Oklahoma and southern Missouri. The MCC Austin congregation has just completed refurbishing and air-conditioning the church building.

KTVV NIXES NBC'S 'SGT MATLOVICH' IN AUSTIN MCC MINISTER LICENSED TO PERFORM 'HOLY UNIONS' The Rev. Dr. Jeff Bishop, Interim Pastor of MCC Austin, is licensed by UFMCC to perform Holy Unions, and lists the following requirements for those wishing to be united 1n Holy Union. --Each party must be legally single, widowed or divorced at the time of the union. If a person has been previously married to a person of the opposite sex, the divorce decree must be final. If a person has previously had a Holy Union, that Holy Union must have been officially dissolved under UFMCC proceedings. --The two parties must have lived together for at least one year. --The two parties must not be involved in an 'open relationship'. —Both parties must be regular participants in church worship services, whether at MCC or another church. --Both parties must be of legal age. --Both parties must as a couple attend three counseling sessions with the minister with each session spaced at approximately a two week interval. —The minister's honorarium is $25, which does not include the cost for use of the church. After holding the made-for-TV movie 'Sgt. Matlo- vich vs the US Air Force' for nearly two years since filming was completed, NBC scheduled the show for Aug. 21. But unless you caught it on San Antonio's KMOL via cable, you didn't get to see the movie here in Austin, even though local newspaper TV listings indicated it would air at 8.p.m. Aug. 21, a Monday. KTVV, Austin's NBC affiliate, apparently cancelled the film at the last minute, showing instead the Miss Texas pageant and a documentary on tornadoes. As late as the Friday before the show was to air, a KTVV spokesperson assured GCS that 'Sgt Matlo- vich' would be shown Aug. 21 at 8 p.m. as scheduled. So why did KTVV cancel the first television program ever whose central theme concerned the human and civil rights of gay Americans? General Manager of KTVV Al Tanksley told GCS that he made his decision to cancel the show based on his perception of viewer Interest. He said further that at the time of the decision he did not know that the film was based on fact nor that it was an NBC premiere movie. Tanksley said that NBC usually promotes Its movies very heavily before their first run and further that NBC almost never premieres a movie 1n the middle of August. Tanksley said that no one at the TV station consults the gay community or reads the gay press and that he had been unaware of the importance of the Matlovich case to the gay community. Leonard Matlovich, awarded the Bronze Star, the Purple Heart, two conmendatlon medals and a meritorious service medal as an officer of the US Air Force during the war in Viet Nam, was honorably discharged from the Air Force in October, I975, seven months after having told his commanding officer that he is homosexual. Matlovich's court battle to rejoin the A1r Force 1s still before a US Court of Appeals. LESBIAN/GAY DEMOCRATS OF TEXAS HEAD TO STATE DEMOCRATIC CONVENTION IN FT.
