Transcript Letters 'Thanks for Reviving the Spirit' From Larry Bagneris Congratulations on a job well done to the hosts of both the Gray Party, held at Numbers Disco the Sunday of the Westheimer Art Festival, and also the party for us small people (under 5*7") held at Baja's. For a moment, I thought I was in the Houston of three years ago when T-dances and parties were the themes of Houston weekends, as we celebrated the joy of knowing and accepting that we are gay. Thank you for putting the spirit of partying back into our community. Rascal's Efforts Applauded From Larry Bagneris A big thank you to the management and staff of Rascal's for the evening of October 24. The $600 raised and donated to the Gay Political Caucus to help defray the cost of this municipal election was greatly needed and appreciated. We could see from the production that it was a labor of love. On behalf of the Board of Directors and the members of GPC, we thank the entire staff of Rascal's for their contributions and continuing support. 10 MONTROSE VOICE/ NOV. 11, 1983 AIDS Funding in Britain Not Major Issue By Lindsay Taylor International Gay News Agency LONDON—The death of a hemophiliac in Bristol from AIDS has led to further calls for the British government to allocate more money to fight the disease. Another hemophiliac in Cardiff is among the 20 confirmed cases of AIDS in Britian. Both men are believed to have contracted the disease from contaminated supplies of clotting agent Factor VIII imported from the United States. The U.S. currently supplies more than half of Bri- tian's Factor VIII, and the government cutbacks in funding mean that the United Kingdom will not be self-sufficient in blood products, at least until 1985. Although the British Hemophilia Society (BHS) has contributed around 25,000 pounds (about $37,000) toward research to find a way of insuring that supplies of Factor VIII are free of AIDS, Social Services Secretary Norman Fowler has refused to increase governmental funding of the project. At a meeting in late September, junior Health Minister Lord Glenarthur told the hemophiliac organization that the government was unwilling to expand its AIDS research because this would mean that other medical research projects would have to be cut. The hemophiliac group now plans to join with gay groups, organizations concerned with intravenous drug users and health service trade unions to form an AIDS Action Committee. This Action Committee aims to put pressure on the Department of Health and Social Security to treat the AIDS problem with more urgency and to counter inaccurate reporting about AIDS in the media. Julian Meldrum, secretary of the gay Hall-Carpenter Archives, has already made a detailed complaint to the Press Council on newspaper coverage of the disease. The committee intends to issue a reg- ular newsletter to organizations representing all groups that are particularly at risk from the disease. WiIP , "?Vns 'n £tuff' ^ "lorn 8c ®orjt!
