Transcript ''Mother Ruth,'' the VD Lady, steps do'Wn Ruth Ravas, known in Montrose as Mother Ruth, the lady who stuck many a gay male with a needle in the arm in her constant search to control venereal disease, and who was instrumental in organizing the Montrose Clinic, has resigned her post with the City Health Department. as much of the monthly operating bills, will have to be generated in Montrose. The clinic is expected to be staffed by medical volunteers much of the time. · But, she advised, "Before everyone gets the feel· ing of being deserted, it ain't so. You won't find mE at the clinic on MacGregor, but you will see me al some of the screenings and sometimes at the Mon• rose Clinic." Ms. Ravas moved to Houston from Austin three years ago and immediately became the City Health Department's main liaison with the gay community. She said she was resigning from the City Health Department because of "many bureaucratic pres· s•Jres working with the administration of the VD She emphasized the Montrose Clinic is still going control program in Houston." to open. Ms. Ravas had helped organize several fund raisers for the Montrose Clinic. "Also, I live 30 miles one-way from work and the Montrose area, and that's a long drive every day," she added. "I have been saying all the time that it is not my clinic, but your clinic." "This was not an easy decision but at this time in my life I need the change," she said. Ms. Ravas is fund-raising chairperson of the Montrose Clinic Committee. Although the City of Houston and the State of Texas will participate in easing the cost of operat­ing the clinic, the initial opening expenses, as well David Bonuelos, Health Services Coordinator for the Gay Political Caucus, who worked with Ms. Ravas in coordinating free venera! disease tests about once a week at Montrose gay clubs, said, "Ruth has agreed to work as a volunteer with us PH<Yro BY ED NAR1lNEZ Montrose Voice THE NEWSPAPER OF MONTROSE, ISSUE #46, PUBLISHED WEEKLY Two rare diseases taking high toll among gay males ATLANTA-Seventy new cases of two rare diseases that affect male homosex· uals have been reported since July 3, bringing the total in recent months to 111, nearly half of them fatal. The disease appears on the scale of the toxic shock syndrome or the Legion· naire's disease, reported the Los Angeles Times. The National Center for Disease Control has formed a special task force to investigate both Kaposi's Sarcoma, a cancer of the blood vessels, and pneumocystis, a parasitic, pneumonia· like virus, which is sexually transmitted. Scientists have not been able to make a connection between the two diseases. No one has as yet discovered why gay men are the victims of these diseases. Dr. Harold Jaffe, a member of the task force, said they plan to investigate links to previous diseases, immunization system disorders, sexual lifestyle, drug use and other possible causes. Both diseases have previously only been associated with people with severe immune deficiencies caused by such factors as viral attacks and anti-cancer treatment and previously usually affected men of Jewish, Greek, or Italian ancestry who are over the age of 70. However, outside ofhomosexuals, both diseases are rarely fatal. Among the gay men, all were young and healthy until the di~ses struc~. "Really, there is no logtcal, ob~1ous cause," said Dr. James Curran, chtef of the National Center for Disease Control. Meanwhile, 15 members of Black and White Men Together of New York, a gay ·n . !"racial group, have participated in the first phase of a cancer research project on the disease being conducted by the National Cancer Institute. •a•A McCoy's not guilty verdict upsets gay leaders An official of the Fred Paez Task Force said he would release information that showed police officer Kevin McCoy, acquited on a charge of negligent homicide in the death of gay activist Fred Paez, exhibited homophobic tendencies in high school in Louisiana. A former classmate of McCoy's helped provide the information. McCoy, 26, was found not guilty Sept. 4 in the death of Paez June 28, 1980, after Paez was said to have made a sexual advance toward McCoy. The jury deliberated four hours and ten minutes in the court of visiting state District Judge Van Stovall. Asked why the high school informa· tion was not brought out in the trial, Task Force official Lee Harrington said, "The person who is a witness in it is not prepared to testify because of fear of reprisals." Instead, the prosecution's strategy attempted to show that McCoy was intoxicated or nearly intoxicated when his gun discharged in the back of Paez' head last year. McCoy stood calm when the verdict was announced but later collapsed into the arms of his wife and said he was anxious to get back on the police force. He had been suspended, with pay, since the October grand jury indictment. The Task Force said it would hold a "community meeting" Sunday, Sept. 13, at 3:00 p.m. at the Metropolitan Community Church, 1919 Decatur, to discuss the reaction of Houston's gay people to the short trial. Gay leaders, who form the Task Force, were quiek to voice their opinions of the verdict. "It's still legal to kill queers in Harris County," said Ray Hill, a Task Force member and a close friend of Paez. "The trying of officer McCoy is closed but the situation is not closed," said Harrington. Harrington said that an appeal had not been ruled out. The Houston Chronicle quoted prosecutor Brian Rains as saying, "Kevin McCoy wasn't in control that night and hewasn'tin control because he had been drinking, and that's negli· gence. Because of his drinking, he didn't have his wits about him." Rains said that because McCoy had been drinking, he should not have tried to arrest Paez on that dark summer night in the alley where McCoy was working an off-duty security job. There were few surprises at the trial. Little additional information not already discussed prior to the trial was revealed. McCoy, a four-year veteran with the Houston Police Dept. and three previous years as a Lake Charles, La., policeman, testified that he was not intoxicated on the night of the killing, and that Paez had struggled as he was being arrested, a struggle that, McCoy said, caused his pistol to accidentally discharge. The negligent homicide charge against McCoy was a misdemeanor but was tried in felony court because the accused was a public official. The charge was punishable by a year in prison and a $2000 fine. According to the defense, after Paez was said to have groped McCoy, McCoy rapidly turned Paez around, put his gun to Paez's head and began to search him. Paez immediately struggled and the gun OTH EEO Friday September 11, 1981 Good Evening Montrose weather tonight: Fair and mild with a low of 72°. Saturday: Sunrise 7:05AM.

The defense brought out that Paez was a "police buff" and had two gtms in his car at the time of his death-factors the defense thought disproved Paez's alleged "non-aggressive" nature. Friends of Paez testified that they didn't think it was in his nature to resist an arrest. Paez, an administrative assistant with the Gay Political Caucus, had written a pamphlet on how to act when being arrested. He advised readers not to resist, even if the arrest was wrong. Viewing the court procedures were several dozen police officers, in uniform, as well as Montrose community leaders. Lalor trying to disperse sex shops City Councilman Lance Lalor, in an effort to disperse sexually-oriented businesses that are concentrated in Montrose, has asked the city's legal department to study the possibility of requiring that they be separated from each other by a set distance. Montrose gay leaders, including Warren Duncanson, president of the Westheimer Colony Association, have maintained that blatant heterosexual nude modeling studios attract sexually insecure straight males into the area, who then often harass gay people on the streets. An ordinace adopted in 1980 was designed to try to regulate nude modeling studios and massage parlors by requiring them to be no closer than 1000 feet to schools and churches and by requiring their operators to obtain annual permits. The law did not restrict them from being close to each other. 2 MONTROSE VOICE I SEPTEMBER 11,1981 Thank you Montrose! We're celebrating our first year in the neighborhood! Rick Hardy & Stewart McCloud Houston Guest House Montrose News SEPTEMBER 11, 1981 I MONTROSE VOICE 3 GPC conducting registration drive Will choose endorsements Wednesday The Gay Political Caucus designated September as "Voter Registration Month" and during this month is "concentrating our efforts on getting as many people as possible registered to vote in the mayoral, controller and council races," said Vernon Goins, a member of the GPC. GPC is one of the city's leading endorsement groups. They are scheduled to announce their selections for city office Wednesday for the Nov. 3 election. Lee Harrington, the group's president, said they will have their regular meeting this week at 7:30 p.m. at the downtown Holiday Inn, 801 Calhoun. He said non·GPC members may attend but of course would not be allowed to vote for political recommendations. Screening committees have been at work since late August interviewing candidates. At the Wednesday meeting, the committees will make recommends· tions to the GPC general body, who will then vote which candidates to endorse. Representatives of three mayoral candidates have been lobbying for a GPC endorsement. They are Justice of the Peace Alexander Green, businessman Noble Ginther and City Controller Kathy Whitmire. A close vote may also occur in the race for City Controller, being vacated by Whitmire. Major candidates Leone! Castillo and Lance Lalor were both popular with gay voters in other elections and both would like a GPC endorsement. "It is our purpose to endorse only those persons who are at least friendly to the gay community," Goins said. "It should be apparent to those seeking office that gays vote from a position of strength. We are significant in numbers," he added. Conference reported life is I• mprov•i ng Three hundred participants to the Texas Gay Conference VIII last weekend attended workshops and heard lecturers say life for homosexuals was improving. "The community at large is becoming less homophobic," Edra Bogle of Denton, a North Texas State University professor, was quoted by the Houston Post. The daily Post gave prominant coverage to the conference. Bogle pointed out that today participants to such conventions use their full names, different from just six years ago when most people only used first n'imes or initials when registering. Among the keynote speakers was author Jack Nichols, who now lives in Atlanta and writes for the Atlanta Gazette gay newspaper. Nichols made a poetic plea for recognition of what he called the "gay tradition"-a "secret remedy" that he said has been nutured for over 100 years that will "resuscitate" progressive visions in the gay liberation movement. Patricia Nell Warren, author of one of the first successful gay books, The Front Runner, was also a keynote speaker. The theme of the conference was "Strength in Diversity." The three day conference was held at the First Unitarian Church at 5210 Fannin.

(This little item came from the Dallas Morning Newe, which, along with the Dallas Times·Herald, have bureaus in Houston. Ironically, neither the Hous· ton Post nor the Houston Chronicle have bureaus in Dallas. It just goes to show that people in Dallas are interested in what happens in Houston, but we Hous· tonians don't care much about what happens in that little Texas city up north.) -·- Last weekend's party at the old Farm­house building attracted millions-well, it seemed like millions-who danced and played the night away. The music was good, but the liquid refreshments left a little to be desired­they ran out of everything. But we'll for· give them.

Bagneris (pronounced BAH-na·reese) has in his tour of duty in Montrose pro­gressed to the honored status of "com· munity leader," an unofficial title bestowed on about two dozen Houston gay men and lesbians. Larry was Gay Pride Week chairper­son this past year and is on the board of directors of the Gay Political Caucus and the National Gay Task Force. -·- The full moon this week occurs officially at 10:06 p.m. Sunday night-that's according to the Houston Weather Bureau. There's been some dispute in recent months on just when the full moon occurs. So instead of just giving the day each month, the Voice now will give the exact time. So this Sunday, at 10:06 p.m., pause and pay a little respect to the moon. The old girl's been up there for millions of years, just going round and round, and we just take her for granted. The Venture-N will celebrate with a full moon party Sunday night-and per· haps a special surprise at 10:06 p.m. Mary's, which always does things a little different, is having a full moon party Monday night, with free drinks for all Virgos. 4 MONTROSE VOICE I SEPTEMBER 11,1981 Montrose News Candidates races begin to heat up Lance Lalor officially filed with the City Secretary for City Controller Sept. 4, and will apparently be facing Leone! Castillo, a former City Controller who is again seeking the post. City Treasurer George L Nichols and political unknown Cynthia D. Oliphant have also stated their intentions to run for City Controller. Lalor is vacating his City Council District C seat, which is, so far, being sought after by four announced candidates: writer-attorney George Greanias, psychotherapist Harold L. Harris, psychologist Joe Pentony and political unknown Peter Elloway, a Montrose resident. Another Montrose resident, James Greenwood ill, has said he is running for City Council Position 3 at Large, the spot being vacated by Johnny Goyen, who has announced his retirement from politics. Thirteen candidates have filed "intentions to run for office" with the City Secretary, including City Controller Kathy Whitmire, who lives in Montrose. Sept. 4 was the first day of official filing, where candidates pay their filing fees or present petitions with voters' signatures. The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence Last month, the MONTROSE VOICE received a phone call from a "Goldie Glitters," who identified himself a member of the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence. "We're in Houston and we thought maybe you'd like to interview us." You're who, we asked. "The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence. Surely you've heard of us. We're known all across the country." Well, we hadn't heard of them, so we declined the invitation to interview. As things now turn out, we have heard of them. A dispatch arrived at the VOICE from Daniel Curzon of the International Gay News Agency, in which he discribed their recent appearace at the national convention of gay atheists in San Francisco. His story: The Sisters put on a service that was a mockery of traditional liturgy and at the same time an attempt to point up the excessive guild that has been imposed on gay people by religion. The Sisters, or some eight of them, entered the auditorium chanting the names of goddesses: Isis, Astarte, Diana, Hecate, Demeter, Kali, and Innana. They proceeded to take command of the stage, dressed in their nuns' habits, which vary from quite plain to heavy mascara, red nylon stockings and handcuffs. One of them announced: "We come to seek the truth!" They lighted incense in a censer and began to waft the resulting aromatic fumes about the stage. A few nuns sprinkled salt and water to purify the North and the East; others "charged" the South and the West with fire and air. Then a Sister came forward and read a few "meditations," the gist of some were as follows: "If God really existed, it would be necessary to abolish Him." "God being Master, people become slaves." The Meditations were followed by a period in which most of the Sisters "confessed" their sins to Reverend Mother, who threw a black veil over her face and sat in a large chair to listen. Sister Boom-Boom confessed: "I feel guilty for not wearing enough make-up." Another Sister confessed that she felt guilty when she told a sex partner that he couldn't have anal intercouse with her. Another Sister confesses guilt because she has continued to pay her taxes. Reverend Mother told each of the penitents, "Renounce your guilt, Sister." The main philosophical idea of the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence is that gay people need to get rid of all the needless guilt that is said to have been imposed from outside by church 11.nd state. Sister Sermon etta (poet James Broughton) topped off the ceremony by reading some of his poems, looking like a pixie nun with a grey beard. Sister Sermonetta'slittle "sermons" came from a work entitled "GraffittifortheJohnsof Heaven" and included "Mash Notes to God." The line that stands out the most is this one: "I believe there are divinities everywhere-especially men." Later there was a social hour for the atheist delegates, and a few went out with the Sisters to a restaurant. It was an Experience, I must say. People reacted in anything but an indifferent manner to men in nuns costumes and make-up. A few screamed, some burst the balloons the nuns were carrying, and a couple of drunks sat at our table uninvited. A few came over for autographs. I held hands with a nun for the first time in my life. It was the hand of Sister Qua Lewd Conduct, also known as Goldie Glitters, who was once elected homecoming queen at the University of Santa Barbara. Believe it or not, holding a Sister's hand wasn't nearly as bad as going to school with nuns for twelve years! Fitness saggi• ng America's fitness craze, at least in straight circles, is bottoming out, reports the Wall Street Journal. Interest in sports like racquetball and roller skating seems to have peaked and that's taking its toll on sporting goods manufacturers. A Message from Noble Ginther to the Gay Community Dear Friends: In 1981, I have been the only candidate for Mayor to publicly and enthusiastically seek the support of the gay community. I am proud of this in one sense, and saddened in another, as I think the time is long overdue that every candidate for city-wide office should recognize that the Houston gay com­munity is a strong, viable, and contributing force within our city-therefore, it is a legiti­mate community to campaign in. No one should be ashamed or fear political reprisal for simply seeking the support of any community that contributes to the improvement in the quality of life of our city. As your next Mayor, I know that past involvement, association, and support we have given one another will give us a big lead in that struggle for human equality. This campaign will be the most public and visable effort that Montrose has seen of any past mayor's race. I hope that the gay community will join me in that effort. I know that ... together we can. Sincerely yours Noble Ginther Remember, Noble Ginther is • The only candidate for Mayor who cared enough • The only candidate for Mayor who truly recog­to ride in our Gay Pride Parade and attend the GPC nizes and respects the rights and integrity of the rally ...

Y.-An upstate New York gay rights organization has filed suit in Federal court seeking to overturn the New York state loitering law, which they say is used by local police to harass gay people. The Mattachine Society of the Niagara Frontier filed the class action suit Aug. 13, they said, on behalf of "an estimated half million gays in New York State." Buffalo and county law officials and the state attorney general were named as defendants. monTA<fSE hair design l HAIRCUT & BLOW DRY JUST f17.50 4317 montrose david fowler SQQ-Q8QQ ti•~U:inl! away witli a group, a friend or just by yourseU.

Faulring, Jr., president ofMattachine, said that since a state law against "consensual sodomy" was overturned earlier this year, police have turned to the loitering statute as a means to harass gay people. "The loitering statute, as now enforced, denies my right and the right of other gay men and women to free speech and assembly," said Faulring. The suit charges that Buffalo police regularly use officers posing as gay men to entrap gay men, and then charge them with loitering, since they can no longer charge them with "sodomy." Said a Mattachine press release, "Police decoys are not persons 'offended' under the law by invitations they might receive when they engage in conversa­tion with gays." The horns of a dilemma WASHINGTON, D.C.-Watch out for the bull. The famous Schlitz Malt Liquor slo­gan is a reality for drug dealers in Washington D.C. The District of Colum· bia police department made the animal come to life in a recent dope bust. Five suspects were sitting in a Lincoln Continental when a brown van pulled up alongside. Out burst a narcotics office wearing a rented bull costume, and close behind, several other policemen, All wearing badges made from Schlitz Malt Liquor cans. A crowd of about 200 people gawked as the men were arrested with $20,000 worth of heroin. Police officials later said the bust did a lot for the morale of the offi· cers, who wanted to "freak out the drug dealers."

Gays are becoming involved because traditionally gays have had no voice whatever in national politics. With the passing of the House of Representatives' recent bill that would deny legal services to homosexuals or anyone supporting gay rights, as well as the upcoming Family Protection Act, gays have a special interest in seeing to it that Congressmen are responsive to the interests of the nation as a whole, including gays.

Cox wants to make Congressional campaigns funded by public money, the same way I • • • • • • • • • I 8 MONTROSE VOICE I SEPTEMBER 11,1981 Presidential campaigns now are. Cox feels that Political Action Commitees are buying favored treatment from Congressmen who accept dona­tions. Cox cites examples of dairy subsidies and votes against fraudulent land development by members of Congress who have received money from the special interests involved in the issues being voted on. According to Common Cause, these special interest Political Action Committees are sizing up the candidates for the 1982 election. Common Cause proposes to develop a system using computers whereby voters can seek the direct connection between the monetary donations of groups and the way elected officials receiving the donations vote on relevant issues. In its proposed "Follow The Dollar" plan, Common Cause will: • Put the names of all 535 members of Congress and the committees on which they serve on computer. • Record every donation by Political Action Committees to members of Congress. • Program into the computer the special interest of each Political Action Committee. • Record key Congressional billa. • Record how each member of Congress votes on issues. • Publish an analysis of the coinci­dence between each elected official's receipt of special interest money and his or her votes on key issues. Cox hopes to counter the trend toward drowning out "the voices of the ordinary citizen." Common Cause can be written at Box 220, Washington, DC 20044. IGNA Battle on the streets: Gays vs. Religionists By Daniel Curzon/IGNA SAN FRANCISCO-They came to Save Our Souls. Last month, a group of some 60 evangelical Christiana held a meeting in Union Square in downtown San Francisco. They were mostly white, with a few Asians and Mexican-Americana mixed in, mostly young. The men tended to have beards and mid-length hair; the women, dresses. They sang the same song over and over again for an hour: "All Hail to Jesus," a melody that one had to confess had a haunting, almosthypnoticeffect.Many of the Christian singers from time to time stood with their arms uplifted, almost as if in a trance. Beatific smiles filled their faces. Meanwhile, the gays, men and women both, were out in even greater quantities, frequently blowing their whistles to all but drown out the Christian singing, which the gays interpreted as a direct threat to their lifestyles. Dressed in everyday clothes as well as in the robes of the occasional Radical Faeries in the crowd, the gays shouted, whooped, laughed, and blew soap bubbles. Quite a few carried quotations from the Bible on signs, pointing up biblical injunctions against judging others lest ye be judged and praying on public street corners.

I DDS severe hint of tension underneath. On one aide of the stage set up for the singers and musciana was a large sign saying "Let God Arise." On the other aide a gay man was holding a sign almost as big saying "Thank God I'm Gay." At one point four gay men got up on the stage and blocked theviewoftheaingera who were paired male-female at each of the four or more microphones. Half a dozen police officers swept onto the stage and tried to make the gay demonstrators move. There were a few tussles but no major fisticuffs and the gay me~ settled for sitting on the edge of the stage. Gary Goodell, pastor of the Faith Fellowship Church in East Oakland, a member of the SOS steering committe denied that the group is anti-gay. "We'r~ apolitical. We're not targeting the gay community. But we stand on the Bible, which says homosexuality is a sin," he said . Many gays saw the SOS as a neo-faaciat threat and carried shields made to resemble pink triangles, like the pink triangles the Nazis forced homosexuals to wear in German concentration camps. Later in the week, leaflets from the SOS organization were left on car windshields in the heavily gay Castro district. The leaflets said unequivocally that San Francisco is doomed to be destroyed by God: "Over the past two decades, this city has turned farther and farther from God. All over the world, San Francisco has developed a reputation as a city which has rejected the Bible and Christian morality. This year, Christians from all over the United States are coming to San Francisco with a message of hope and a warning. Sodom had no Bible, and only one godly family to warn it of God's judgment, yet was judged quite severely by God. How much greater will be the judgment on San Francisco, where the word of God is preached everywhere, if that word is ignored." More confrontations are expected in coming weeks. Who did Zorro? LOS ANGELES-A Hollywood scriptwri­ter has filed a $5-million suit against 20th Century-Fox, claiming that the movie studio and actor George Hamilton did not pay for his script about a gay comic hero. Marvin Braverman claims that his 1977 script was eventually turned into the film Zorro, the Gay Blade. He accused the filmmakers of plagiriam and breach of contract.

An ACLU lawyer representing him said Dahl had planned to make theN avy his career, the news service reported, adding that they said they would appeal. Censorship still on I• ncrease The censorship of books in American school libraries is said to have skyrocketed across the nation since last November, the month Ronald Reagan was elected to the White House. . The Association of American Publishers reports that a survey it conducted last year indicated that record numbers of publications were being banned from school reading lists even before the election. However, a spokesperson for the AAJ> estimates that in the aftermath of the string of conservative election victories last November, the number of censorship incidents jumped 300 to 400 percent. According to the AAP, among the popular targets of would-be censors are works by such authors as Mark Twain, Ernest Hemingway, John Steinbeck, George Orwell, aud even William Shakespeare, in most instances because the works contain four-letter words. The AAJ> study found that many cases also involved books that espoused views on such subjects as "secular humanism," " Darwinish" and evolution, or works which contain criticisms of U.S. history. Several communities reportedly have even banned the Raymond Briggs book Father Christ1714B because Santa Claus, after catching a cold, fortifies himself with ale before setting out on a chilly night to deliver presents. •"" Picket planned for amusement park SAN JOSE, Calif.-It will be gays vs . gays in the proposed demonstration October 10 at Marriott's Great America near San Jose. Great Outdoors Adventures, a gay organization, has arranged with the Mormon-owned amusement park to have a second Gay Night, an event being heavily advertised in the San Francisco Bay area. A group based in San Jose has formed under the name Solidarity for Survival to protest gay patrons spending money at a park that is owned by the Mormon Church, noted for its anti-gay statements by church leaders. According to the information disseminated by SFS, gay people spent over $200,000 in one night at the 1979 "Gay Night" at the park. In 1980, it took nine months for gay groups to raise $100,000 in the same area "to fight a grueling battle for human rights for gays '\)~CATtr~ CAFE § •'!*.'~.'~""!*.c~. c~ c~ c~ c:"~ c~ c!"l§ ~: BREAKFAST SPECIAL : § I~ ·: all week-2 eggs any style : i hashbrowns or grits, blsqults or toast . s s· $2.99 ·I I I ~:~~-~~~~~~c~~~:~ Lunch 5peclal · Ham and ChHM Club Sandwich, French Fries $2.29 Dinner Special Liver & Onlans, choice of potato, vegetables, dinner salad Open 24 hours-708 W.

Hauck's responsibility will be to "identify and screen applicants from the gay and lesbian community for his sponsorship to several California commissions and state boards," a press release announced. · Reagan appointee purged gays WASHINGTON, D.C.-U.S. Deputy Secretary of State William Clark, according to the London Sunday Times, helped Reagan get rid of two homosexual members of his top office staff when Reagan was governor of California. Following months of secret investiga· tion and spying by lower-level staff, the newspaper said, the two gay men were revealed to have had "liasons in motels, orgies in mountain cabins" and were somehow involved with the teenage son of a powerful Republican state senator. The day after Reagan received the report, the two men were forced to resign. Clark was said to have been instrumen· tal in obtaining the resignations. An appreciative Reagan later appointed Clark to the California Supreme Court. Clark now holds the number two position in U.S. foreign policy decisions at the Cabinet level. oaNA NGTF appoints new director of civil rights advocacy WASHINGTON -Mel Boozer, a Washington, D.C., gay activist, is taking over as Director of Civil Rights Advocacy, a job with the National Gay Taek Force. The appointment is a part of NGTF's new initiative against the New Right and the Family Protection Act. Boozer will asaume this poeiton in mid-September. Boozer's duties will be to monitor all Federal policies affecting the gay community nationally, establish a W aehington gay rights advocacy base to influence Federal policy making, and serve as chief liaison between NGTF and other national organizations working for gay civil rights. Boozer, a Washington D.C. native, received national attention last year when he was nominated for U.S. Vice President at the Democratic national convention in New York. Boozer is the only black and openly gay person to be so nominated. NG,.,. NORML blasts 'more prisons' The National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws (NORML) is criticizing Justice Department recommendations to build more federal prisons, claiming that more than ten percent of all federal prisoners are marijuana offenders . Last month, Norman Carlson, Director of the Federal Bureau of Prisons, cited an eight percent rise in the federal prisoner population since last October and an increased need for more prison space. Carlson reportedly attributed the rise in the prisoner population to, among other things, increased prosecution of marijuana and other drug cases. NORML political director George Farnham is protesting federal proposals to spend up to $8 billion to build new prisons. Says Farnham, "It is uncons· cionable to slash the federal budget for studying the health implications of using marijuana with the claim there is no money, and to then propose spending $800 million in taxpayers money to imprison more people convicted on more marijuana offenses." Farnham estimates that as many as 3000 people, or more than 10 percent of all federal prisoners, are in jail on marijuana charges, many of them only for poasession. He says NORML is calling upon the Reagan administration to look to other alternatives to marijuana laws than merely to building more prisons to incarcerate more marijuana offenders. Gay clerk's firing leads to investigation ZNS SAN FRANCISCO-The San Francisco Civil Service Commission refused last month to order District Attorney Arlo Smith to rehire a clerk-typist who claimed he wae fired because he is gay. But the Commission did order that the clerk, Marc Johnson, 35, be given an equivalent job elsewhere in City Hall. Importantly, the Commission also ordered its staff to investigate accusations of "pervasive discrimina· tion" against gays in the District Attorney's office. Johnson had claimed that he was fired April 7, after he was falsely accused of putting a box of candy containing a glasa eyeball on the desk of his supervisor in the D.A'a Family Support Bureau. Johnson's former roommate, Patrick Mockler, however, implicated Johnson by telling the Commission that he purchased the box of candy, removed one piece and substituted a glass eyeball and gave the box to Johnson. John•on'e lawyer, John E. Wahl, charged that Mockler wae not a reliable witnees since he owed Johnson money and also beca11H the Family Support Bureau obtained his testimony by untangling a financial problem involving Mockler's wife and child in Duluth, Minnesota. Numerous witnesses appeared at the public hearing and accused the Family Support Bureau of harassing gay employees because of their sexual orientation. The District Attorney repeatedly denied those charges. Commiuioner Carlota Texidor ordered the Commission's staff to proceed quickly with a look into the accusations of anti-gay biae.

Let your imalination eoar, then guide it in a practical direction, and you can't lose. One caution: Don't rely completely on others' words. AIIISz Watch what you say. Bubbles are very fragile and it's easy to burst one with certain words. Midweek, be ready for unexpected company. Later, close one needs TLC. Give it, but you get some too. TAUIUSz Look for someone to change his mind this weekend, perhaps about a rather important matter. You can expect plans involving other people to be up in the air until the last minute. Later, someone special wants candlelight and ro&e8. GIMINh Concentrate on the areas of life that are really impor­tant to you and put the minor ones on the back burner for a bit. Be sure to do something especially nice to yourself. You're a priority too. MOONCHILDa Meet with those who can help further your goals in week ahead. You have accell8 to a number of resources now, so use 'em! Your sentimental nature springs into full bloom, especially where love is concerned. UOa Financial questions are a bit iffy thi11 coming week. Don't take unnecessary chances. Remember that most rewards come through effort and that there are few freebies. Confusing news arrives; get to the bottom of it. YIIGOa You are a gentle soul, idealistic and sensitive. You have a great detj.} of imagination but tend to daydream quite a bit. You need to remember that it takes action to make those dreams come true, but one small dream just may come true this coming week. UIIAa You are a pretty definite person, usually knowing where you're going. This weekend, though, you might feel as if you're one of those changeable autumn days around the comer. Hang in there. SCOIPIOI Tipsy flights of fancy, pie-in-the-sky schemes, and flaky designs abound this weekend. It won't be euy, but try to keep your feet on the ground. Or at least within a few inches of it! Practice being skeptical. SAGmAIIUSa While you (and the rest of us, too) sometimes have fits of irrational behavior, one thing you simply cannot accept is stupidity. This weekend you're apt to meet one who seems to be out in left field. Take another look before you pop your cork. There could be a reason. CAPIICOINa You may be chafing at the bit this weekend, and feeling uif you're trying to gallop on a track that's two feet deep in molasses. That can be quite frustrating to someone like you who loves to zip along! Keep cool. AQUAIIUSa You're restless, no doubt about it. It's been a long summer. Before you take off to hunt for better pastures, peer at your own in the different September light. You may find it's not yet time to reap the harvest. PISCISa Promised support could fall through this weekend so have alternate plans at hand. You may feel you're on an emo­tional seesaw, with optimistic hi~ha and pessimistic lows. Relax and go gamble with an affair. Trend by Henry McClurg What is it that gay males do that others don't? These two diseases (see story elsewhere this issue) which are attacking gay males, and proving fatal at an alarming percentage, has us all concerned. What is it that gay men do nationwide that others don't? What products do gay males use that others don't? Scientists at the National Center of Disease Control are trying ~figure it out. I can think of two products used nationwide almost exclusively by gay males-and not by anyone else: about eight brand names of butyl nitrite (poppers) and two brands of lubricant. It could be worth examining these products. And I'm sure the National Center for Disease Control is. You'll be happy to know though, as far as I've been able to uncover, no cases of these diseases have been reported in Houston among gay men. 20 Mo~EVOICE / SE~MBERlA T T H E TOWER .
