Transcript 2 MONTROSE VOICE / FRIDAY, DECEMBER 1' AIDS Alliance adopts working budget for 1991 From p el appropriate manner, from any appropriate sources, be it city, county, state or federal, or private corporations... because the problem is so great," Cooper said. Service provider board members, however, were more direct. "The county has supported (the Alliance), at least in terms of facilities and corder, to work with Lee on a paper which will be presented to city health officials, then to council when it begins discussions of the 1992 budget in February. AIDS rights activists, including members of the AIDS Equity League and ACT UP Houston were also asked by Lee to present their views for the report. Also, service provider representatives met with councilmember Beverley Clark's staff and health department representatives last week to discuss AIDS funding. During the Alliance meeting, Cooper told board members that the budget was "flexible at this point," "Several things have come to my attention this week...that could impact (the budget)," she said, travel support, if not monetarily." said Ann Robison, executive director of the Montrose Counseling Cen ter and an Alliance board member. "But the City of Houston, with all its (verbal) support of the Alliance, has not given a penny to this organization, or any other." Service provider representatives have met with city councilmembers twice to discuss Houston's response to AIDS since making an emotional Denominations struggle with idea of homosexual ministers GREENSBORO.

Christians will quote Scripture as proof—then anyone who continues to practice it is making a choice to live apart from God. If it is not, as homosexuals and liberal Christians say, then it becomes a barrier of spiritual prejudice for people who need a church community where they can be accepted. "Jesus never spoke once about homosexuality." said the Rev Christine Oscar, lesbian pastor of the Metropolitan Community Church congregation in Greensboro. "Jesus spoke a lot about love relationships." Former gay Scout says he wants to be a leader again LOS ANGELES (APl-Sexual ' orientation has no bearing on a person's ability to inspire youths to be friendly, courteous and kind, an attorney said during a trial to reinstate a gay Eagle Scout as a Scout leader of the American s Umo Monday, Dec. 10, that California law protects people from "the harm to an individual's dignity in being told, "We don't take your George Davidson, an attorney for the Boy Scouts of America, said the group doesn't approve of gay people as Scouts and Channel 8, the local Public Broadcasting System station, is to be commended for its "Living With AMDS"production last Tuesday. The producers attempted to cover all aspects of AIDS in Houston, combining the factual with the personal. The program established that AIDS is no longer, if it ever was, limited to the gay mate population. Only a couple of years ago certain writers on the Right alleged heterosexuals would not become an affected community except for drug users (and inferred that such hardly counted). Now more than thirty percent of new cases are not homosexuals. And in a couple of years the majority of new cases will be among heterosexuals. And parallel to this, "Living With AIDS" made it clear that the health cost is dear now and rising— with Houston ahead of most of the country. These two trends are already combining to overload the system. The producers made their point and allowed the concerned governmental agencies to respond- too little money too late. But here was also a clear implication that at least the Houston Department of Health is not doing its job, which in the case of AIDS is primarily one of education. Granted too little money, Houston wastes much of what it does get (although Houston cannot be accused of wasting local dollars since the City of Houston has yet to spend a single dollar of its own money on AIDS). Harris County fares only a little better. Its director of hospitals, Lois Moore, at least can say "gay" and "homophobic" and sincerely wants to find more money for patient care—a revolutionary idea in this county. What was not even mentioned in the report was the Greater Houston AIDS Alliance, the umbrella organization created by the city and the county to oversee the war on AIDS. This oversight may well have been intentional. Government, on any level, is not noted for efficiency or action, but the GHAA challenges all others for its inefficient inaction. It's hard to point to a single achieve ment of the GHAA except for their monthly coffee and donut sessions, yet they are projecting a 1991 budget of $303,000—$233,200 of which will go for payroll expenses. That's a lot of money for inaction. Now, thanks to the Ryan White Act, Houston and Harris County shortly will be receiving millions of dollars as "emergency" funds to fight AIDS. And guess who likely will administer that money? You're correct if you said the Greater Houston AIDS Alliance. Whatever else this will provide more administrative jobs for more homophobes and closet cases. And still leave a little to "buy" a few 'AIDS activists" for window dressing. The sad truth of this scenario and the images on the screen Tuesday night is that white not enough money does go for AIDS, much of what is spent enriches the bureaucrats, the medical profession, and the drug industry. Lost in all this are the persons with AIDS. We just go on dying. "Living With AIDS" compassionately touched on the lives of the dying and the infected. What is too often ignored is that the entire lesbian and gay community of Houston is "living with AIDS" Alt of us carry on our lives, our jobs, even our leisure—always surrounded by the constant reminders of this epidemic. Only a few gay writers have even begun to touch on the effect such a climate creates. No other segment of American life can truly relate to what we are experiencing, not even those who lived through any of our wars. With us there in no homefront and no battlefield—it is all the same. But this story is yet to be told, and then not in the mass media where it might appear to be "promoting homosexuality!' Of course, showing the devastation we are experiencing certainly would appear attractive and a form of recruitment. And then again, it would probably be pointless since only our community would watch such a show—and what would be the point, we're already living it„ living with AIDS in Houston, Texas.
