Transcript AUSTINDYKE Vol. I, No. 1 July 23, 1979 LESBIAN RAP & DISCUSSION GROUPS TO FORM We are three lesbians who wish to begin a lesbian rap group sometime in September. We would like to open the group up to any lesbian wanting a politically/emotionally supportive atmosphere in which to explore topics relevant to lesbians, e.g. relationships with wimmin, lesbian feminism, etc. (and a whole range of unexplored territory). Any lesbian interested, call Marie at 472-4520 after August 1st. The three of us would like to explore lesbian politics on a discussion level. Topics in mind include lesbian separatism (its many definitions and practicality). We would also like to explore topics originating from some of the questions and theories proposed by Mary Daly in her book Gyn/Ecology. We are considering forming two groups: the above rap group and also a political discussion group. Call same name and number for information or ideas; after August 1st. - Marie, Dheena, Kathy UP FOR DISCUSSION: LESBIAN FRIENDS AS FAMILY In many ways my lesbian friends have been like a family to me, and I'm certainly closer to them than to my family of birth for many reasons. Lesbian friends have lent and given me money, given me clothes, lent me cars and given me rides, given me places to stay. I can count on my lesbian friends in ways that I never have been able to count on my straight friends, now or when I considered myself to be straight. However, I have never had exactly the same kind of intimate friendships with women, except my lover, since I've been a lesbian as I had with straight women. I think this may come from the "family" nature of the lesbian community too. One is close to family members in different ways and with different expectations than to non-family members. In some ways one is much closer but in some ways much more distant. This may be because both families and lesbian commuunities are rather involuntary groupings. Sure, I choose to be with lesbians rather than anyone else, just as some people choose to be with their families. But I don't have a choice about who is a lesbian any more than I have a choice about who my parents, brothers, or sisters are. I think this closeness of our ties and the reliance we place and want to place on each other, together with the great variety of politics and opinions among lesbians, may be responsible for the high levels of anger and tension that often exist between lesbians. We are each other's families—for better and for worse—and there's a lot of both. - Ginger AUSTINDYKE asked several lesbians for their comments on the idea of lesbian friends as family. —I don't consider just any lesbian as a family member because she's a lesbian, but the lesbians I'm close to I do, in some ways deeper than my own blood family. There are some common problems that make some kind of bond. — Some lesbians are like my family. The emotional bonds are closer than just casual friendships. But I wouldn't claim some lesbians as third, (cont'd on p. 2) Welcome to AUSTINDYKE! We hope to provide a way for Austin area lesbians to express views, let each other know about things, etc. We welcome short contributions on any topic of interest, as well as reviews, coverage of any lesbian event you happen to attend, and so on. Please send these to us at: P.O. Box 3374, Austin, Texas 78764. Please let us know how and whether you want your article signed.
