Transcript Kennedy Urges Spotlighting AIDS Looking for the Average Gay Texan Columnist Joe Baker inside By Larry Bush WASHINGTON, D.C.-Sen. Edward Kennedy (D.- Mass.) is spearheading an effort to give AIDS more political visibility before the Senate and the Reagan administration. Kennedy, who was part of a team effort that added $30 million to the Senate appropriations bill to fund the Public Health Emergency Fund—only to have the extra money dropped in a Senate-House conference committee in early October—now has garnered the signatures of 14 senators on a letter requesting that Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) hold AIDS hearings in the Senate Committee on Labor and Human Resources. Among the senators cosigning Kennedy's letter are three of the four Democratic senators seeking their party's nomination for the presidency in 1984: Alan Cranston (Calif.), John Glenn (Ohio) and Ernest "Fritz" Hollings (S.C.). Only Gary Hart (Colo.) is missing. Republican heavyweights on the letter include Sen. Lowell Weicker (Conn.), who is chair of the appropriations subcommittee on health issues, and Mark Hatfield (Ore.), chair ofthe full appropriations committee. In all, seven of the 17 members of Hatch's committee signed the letter, but observers noted that among the missing Democrats was Tom Eagleton, the Missouri senator who was McGovern's first vice presidential nominee in 1972 and later party to a lawsuit against his niece for charging that he was involved in homosexual vacations in Key West, Fla. While Kennedy's staff suggests that the letter primarily will help keep political visibility on the need to monitor the Reagan administration response to .AIDS, others such as the Federation of AIDS-Related Organizations lobbyist Gerald Connor and National Gay Task Force Washington representative Jeff Levi are hoping that Hatch will decline the request for hearings. The key concern is the make-up ofthe Hatch committee, which is controlled by Republicans who are on the New Christian Right side. Those include Jeremiah Denton (R-Ala.), the ex-POW; John East (N.C.), a Jesse Helms protege; Paula Hawkins (Fla.), a Mormon like Hatch; Don Nickles (Okla.), outspokenly anti-gay; and Charles Grassley (Iowa). Kennedy pitches his hearing request with that makeup in mind, noting that "Senate hearings would focus national attention on the health concerns involved in this issue, rather than involving the Committee in a moral dispute." Overall, Kennedy raises many of the issues that were also aired in the Weiss hearings in August in the House, and the Waxman hearings in Los Angeles in 1982. THE STAR AUSTIN * SAN ANTONIO Nov 11, 1983 a Issue .1 o Published Every Other Friday Can We Talk? Welcome to the first issue of THE STAR, the new Austin/San Antonio-area gay newspaper. The first thing to be remembered about this newspaper is that it is primarily, but not exclusively, a paper for, by and about the gay community. It will feature stories, photographs, reviews and pieces of general interest to and about the gay community in Austin, San Antonio, Corpus Christi, and the nation at large. Secondly, this is the newspaper of the gay community. It is your newspaper. A.'though it will have an editorial attitude and approach, that approach will be fashioned by your response to it. Thus, you are encouraged to write, call or otherwise inform THE STAR about what you like and what you don't like. Letters to the editor are heartily encouraged. News about your organizations, suggestions for stories—all these and whatever else you would like to say to THE STAR, will be seriously considered. No suggestion will be too "off the wall" for THE STAR. Finally, Austin is not only the capital of Texas, it is also the center for the Laidback Community, Texas' San Francisco, the remnant of those who sought the Greening of America in Texas. Austin probably has more different kinds of alternate tabloids and free papers than any city in Texas. Memories ofthe old "Austin Rag" come to mind, in the days ofthe free press then popular in America of the 70s. THE STAR will continue the Austin tradition of real freedom ofthe press to say what we think our readers need and want to hear. We need your help in doing this. THE STAR subscribes to all major gay news services and columnists. Some ofthe best writers on and in the national nay community will appear on these pages— from the line-up at Stonewall Features to the reporting of Larry Bush from Washington. THE STAR is owned by the Montrose Voice Publishing Company, a three-year- old gay-owned publishing company based in Houston that also publishes the Montrose Voice there and Dallas Gay News, major gay community newspapers. The owners are committed to making THE STAR the best of the three newspapers. Enjoy THE STAR, proud to now be a new part of the Austin/San Antonio-area gay community. Janet Cobb and Juan Ochoa, co-chairpersons of the Austin Lesbian/Gay Political Caucus ALGPC Meets Monthly Officers and members ofthe Austin Lesbian/Gay Political Caucus met in the Commissioner's Court in the Courthouse Annex Oct. 25 for the organization's most recent monthly meeting. Juan Ochoa and Janet Cobb, co-chairpersons of the group, presented issues. Paul Clover spoke to the assembly about the Waterloo Counseling Center, a nonprofit corporation offering help to the adaptational needs and life concerns of gay men and women. Clover, one of the founders of the center, spoke of the services offered, including counseling, educational seminars, professional consultation and community services development. Clover emphasized that the primary concerns of the center at the moment are funding and a permanent location. A lengthy discussion concerning possible endorsement of political candidates by ALGPC followed, ending in a move to postpone a decision until a later date. As part of this, information about the recent ALGPC voter registration drive in some gay businesses was presented. The voter registration drive will continue, and help for this drive is solictied.
