People who want to meet you Three of the Attic's topless waiters during their grand opening night last Saturday which brought in a packed house ;:: With an approaching mayoral election perhaps it's time once again to take up the endless question of the future of the gay movement. In a couple of previous excursions into the psyche of our community we cited a new book by Marshall Kirk and ~ Hunter Madsen, 1\fter The Ball: How America Will Conquer Its ~ Fear and Hatred of Gays in the 90s". u.. We cited favorably some of the pitfalls of the past and the ~ authors' immediate answer to the present-a centrally directed ;5 ci: media campaign. The remainder of Kirk and Madsen's hefty ;?, tome is directed at the gay community, divided-by them-into "Q·types" of homosexuals on display, and "R·types" or regular guys. w u 6 > w (/) 0 .e..r. z 0 :::1 The authors' preference (we nearly wrote "prejudice") is with the straight appearing, often monied gay men, as opposed to the "Qs" who currently dominate the gay political hierarchy-0nd have botched the job, so to speak and say the authors. Kirk and Madsen would cleanse our community of those who have given us such a negative image, the queens, the drags, the leathermen, the clones, the cowboys-all those who seem to wear "queer" on their sleeves or-in the parlance of the classified ads-those who flaunt their gay lifestyle. Bring on the "straight clones" who emulate the road to success and power pioneered so well by Big Business and "Right" politics. Every major city has such a faction, and usually more so in less open areas such as Texas. Such was the case in our former domicile, Dallas. Until a couple of years ago, the Dallas Gay Alliance held to the philosophy that what worked for the Dallas straight power structure would also work for gays. This is sometimes referred to as the Uncle Tom Shuffle. The current Dallas Gay Alliance ventures into more confrontational postures with proven results. Kirk and Madsen, to support their argument for such one­dimensional gay activism, cite other minority movements but, unfortunately, in such cases as blacks and labor unions they play loose with the facts to shape their case. When we look at the recent Texas Legislature, or the controversy in Washington over the Mapplethorpe exhibit, it is difficult to perceive progress. Certainly the history of the AIDS epidemic can only reflect dishonor on a wide field of politicians as well as much of the medical community. The authors of 1\fter the Ball" simply conclude that the gay revolution has failed. First, we feel they have thrown in the towel after a couple of bod rounds. It's the luxury of the young (and the authors are young) to want a quick resolution of any conflict. But the gay I ~ r-:;t.SHEER INSANITY & ~ DAOUIAI FACTORY WESTHEIMER movement was only born around the turn of the century, in Germany of all places. And while World War II (ancient history to many and a childhood memory to some) gave impetus to that movement in America, gay rights was more a question of gay acceptance of itself until the Stonewall riots in 1969. And the growth of the gay movement was, and is, dependent on many ways on the advancement of blacks and women. Many gay men worked in the civil rights movement and gained valuable experience. Just as lesbians worked the trenches for women's rights and now are vigorously providing hard-earned skills to our common cause. All political movements are as much evolutionary as revolutionary. We all want to achieve our goals now-What Do We Want: Gay Rights! When Do We Want Them: Now!-and we must work as if those goals are attainable tomorrow. But historically we have a ways to go. The gay revolution has failed? And a media campaign will win it? No, and no. Continued hard work will win it, bosed on our diversity, not on destroying it. If Kirk and Madsen had been around Valley Forge in the Winter of 1778 they would have been advising George that the Revolution was over, and let Madison Avenue arrange the terms. We are a long way, after a year, from understanding all there is to know about the Houston gay political scene. But in this year we have met some incredibly dedicated men and women, nearly all of whom are committed to this gay revolution. We would love to name names but don't wish to offend those we have yet to meet. From the caucus to professional groups, from lobbying organizations to individuals efforts we have encountered an immense amount of effort combined with expertise that can only be gained at the battlefront. Sometimes, we reflect, the movement is obsessed with numbers. We turned them out in Washington and the media ignored us, we turned them out in Austin and we were called divisive. While numbers play their role, all successful revolutions have been carried through by a seemingly small but driven few. Even in this so-called democracy where the majority rules, all great changes, for good or ill, are wrought by a determined few. And such will be the legacy of the gay revolution. The fight has only begun. New leaders will rise even from the AIDS-devastated generation before us. What we all can do is preserve our victories, nourish our warriors and keep the faith . We can relish the small victories and live long enough to reflect on the long road to ultimate victory. Fighting the good fight is still vastly more satisfying than writing about it. 1424-C Westheimer (at Windsor) 522-5156 Video Sales Ir Rentals • Swimwear • T-Shirts • Magazines • Cards • Books • Leather • Accesso•ies • Necessities .,, Jl 0 > :< >c Gl c ~ ;: 0 z -< Jl 0 (/) m < 0 Ci m ">' Jl ~ Jl The Personals FOR OUR REGULAR CLASSIFIED ADS, SEE THE MONTROSE CLASSIFIED;' IN THE BACK OF THE MAIN SECTION OF THE MONTROSE VOICE a: <( <( N ri: <( al Personals (individual) W AH ads m this category are ~ strictly 1nd1v1duat to ~ ~n:~v~~r~11a~~ffenngs en Nothing for sale 0 a: Experienced lealherman ~ ol 40 seeks loverislave 25- 0 45 whose curiosity makes ~ him eager lo explore his S and M sexuah1y while '<t serving my needs.
