The women who joined are involved in providing care to persons with AIDS. In the group's founding statement, the Women's AIDS Network stated, "As women, lesbian and heterosexual, we have much to share, much of offer, much to teach, much to learn." The group also said that the group faces the personal issue of facing the diseases of their male friends as well as the social issue of being isolated in the lesbian community for working to fight AIDS. The statement also said, "As women working within predominantly male groups dealing with AIDS, we once again face invalidation, invisibility and sexism." THe group plans to be involved in education, support and political action, including education about AIDS to the lesbian and feminist communities. Laurie Hauer, RN, a worker in San Francisco General Hospital's AIDS Clinic, convened the group's first meeting. Hauer pointed out that women have been working at all levels ofthe AIDS crisis since its beginning and deserve to be included as equal participants in policy, fund-raising and any ongoing work of organizations working on AIDS. Says Hauer, "I see this as a very important way of unifying the men's and women's communities, one ofthe positive aspects of this crisis."

MCC to Convene in Toronto By Steve Warren Via Gay Press Association Wire Service After nearly 15 years, Metropolitan Com munity Church has grown too big for its organizational britches. Incorporated as the Universal Fellowship of Metropolitan Community Churches in 1971 after a handful of congregations had grown out ofthe founding group in Los Angeles, the church's Gen eral Conference XI will vote this summer on a wholesale restructuring with an emphasis on decentralization proposed by its Commission on Government Structures and Systems. In recent years, UFMCC has been dealing with the complexity of adapting to the laws, languages and customs of many nations, as MCC's are now operating in nine countries, striving for a foothold in several others and keeping the lines of communication open with interested parties in dozens more. The first MCC outside the U.S. was formed in 1973 in Toronto, Canada, and church will mark its 10th anniversary by hosting the General Conference July 10- 17. With the theme "Many Gifts ... One Spirit," the conference will feature guest speaker Dr. Virginia Mollenkott, author of Women, Men and the Bible and 7s the Homosexual My Neighbor? All-day Beminars include "Church Growth in Good and Bad Times" and "Embodiment: Uniting the Spiritual and Sensual Self." In business meetings, the GSS proposals to divide the North American churches into regions will be discussed. Each region would elect an elder to manage its affairs and represent it to the Board of Elders, which administers the business of the fellowship between general conferences. This would increase the size ofthe current board and assure that all elders were salaried for their work. In addition, the structure would allow for administrative help for the church's founder, Rev. Troy Perry, who has just returned from three months of travel, much of it devoted to raising money for the UFMCC TV special, God, Gays and the Gospel: This Is OUR Story. Perry said he is optimistic about the church's eventual acceptance into the National Council of Churches. That vote should come next year if NCC's Governing Board, which met with UFMCC representatives in San Francisco in May, approve the application at their November meeting. Should they delay their vote again, Rev. Perry won't be concerned. "We feel like the longer they wait, the better off we are," he said. "To know us is to love us." Growth a Concern for Gay Fathers Coalition By Phil Nash Via Gay Press Association Wire Service DENVER—Growth and strengethening of its organization are two big items on the 1983-84 agenda ofthe Gay Fathers Coalition which met for its annual convention in May in Denver. More than 100 gay fathers, some accompanied by their lovers, gathered to participate in workshops and to conduct the organization's business. The San Francisco chapter reportedly had an attendance of up to 50 people two years ago, but now hosts about 250, a 500 percent increase in two years. In New York City, six separate chapters operate and a separate organization called Gay Fathers Forum has sprung up. Organizers emphasize the importance of personal contact in gay fathers' groups because for many fathers, it is there first contact with the organized gay community. Media attention is another important issue confronting the organized gay fathers' group. Because many members are unable to publicly disclose that they are gay, relatively few spokespeople have emerged. To facilitate greater access to and acceptance in the media, Stu Gross of the Gay Fathers' Forum in New York conducted a workshop in presenting gay parenting issues in the media. Other workshops during the weekend included information about custody decisions, a seminar on relationship systems and a forum for exchanging ideas and solving problems. The Gay Fathers' Coalition can be reached at P.O. Box 50360, Washington, DC 20004. (J^fWtceSydufe.
