Busy Week #1982 by Randy Alfred Silver Lining: Carol Ruth Silver is a progressive member of San Francisco's Board of Supervisors, the legislative branch of our consolidated city-county goernment. She is highly individualistic, some might say idiosyncratic. She is pro-feminist, anti-gun-control, and pro-gay. For many years, she shared a household with a gay man prominent in city and state Democratic politics, Jack Trujillo. Silver is the unmarried mother of two children. Last year, Silver had the clerk of the Board send a letter of sympathy to U.S. Representative Jon Hinson (R-Miss.), after U.S. Capitol Police arrested him in a House Office Building men's room and charged him with attempted oral sodomy. Hinson later resigned. Silver said she meant the letter to point out the waste of police staffpower involved in patrolling restrooms. However, a public furor and an outcry by her colleagues on the Board caused her to apologize for their embarrassment. She then pointed out her own disapproval of sex in public restrooms, labelling it "disgusting and dirty and unpleasant." That was last year. Last month, Silver sent a letter on her own "Member, Board of Supervisors" stationery to "Her Most Gracious Majesty Queen Elizabeth II." (The Hinson letter was sent on behalf of the entire Board.) Silver wrote, "I beg you to reconsider your decision to accept the resignation of your bodyguard, Commander Michael Trestail." Tres- tail had resigned after admitting an affair with a male prostitute. Silver pointed out that if people couldn't lose their jobs because of such exposure, then they couldn't be blackmailed, and thus wouldn't have to lose their jobs. Silver asked the queen "to strike a major blow for freedom and personal liberty, humanity and decency." Her Majesty has not yet replied. I do not believe, however, she is either naive or squeamish about such matters. When the great composer, Benjamin Britten (Baron Britten of Alde- gurgh) died in 1976, Elizabeth II sent a condolence letter to his lover, operatic tenor Peter Pears. God save all the queens! Granted: Lia Belli is another of our non-gay friend s, She is president of the California Democratic Council, the most powerful progressive force in the state Democratic Party. She also sits on the board ofthe Kaposi's Sarcoma Research and Education Foundation. (Incidentally, she is also the fifth wife of famed S.F. trial attorney Melvin Belli, the "King of Torts." Belli celebrated his 75th birthday in late July with a gargantuan, free-drinking street party open to all comers. That occurred amidst a controversy that began when Belli perhaps too candidly told a meeting in Toronto that Asian jurors voted for skimpy damage awards. That didn't sit well in this city, which has the largest Asian population of any city outside Asia.) In June, Lia Belli visited Washington with a friend who has KS. They saw Richard Schweiker, Reagan's Secretary of Health and Human Services, and Bruce Chabner, acting director ofthe National Cancer Institute. Belli said they were able to "dynamite a logjam" in the bureaucracy, and research funds (to study the immune-deficiency diseases now striking gay and other populations) will start flowing by this autumn. Belli said funds would go to researchers in New York, Houston, Los Angeles and San Francisco Belli said a New Right member of Congress is reported to have remarked about KS patients, "Let 'em die." Our own sources say it was Senator Jeremiah Denton (R-Alabama). Dealing with Discrimination: The Jewish Gaily Forward, newsletter of San Francisco's gay and lesbian Jewish Congregation Sha'ar Zahav (Golden Gate), had two interesting items this month. First, the Seventh International Conference of Gay and Lesbian Jpws, held in Los Angeles, postponed a vote on whether the World ■''ingress of Gay and Lesbian Jews should admit men-only and •voiven-only organizations to membership. S. .nd, New York'sgay synagogue, Beth SimchatTorah, withdrew from participation in the Jewish Peoplehood Fair, after the West Side Jewish Community Council asked the Beth Simchat Torah's banner not identify itself as a gay and lesbian synagogue. Other participants in the fair had threatened to withdraw if the gay congregation participated. Hi There, Sports Fans: S.F. Chronicle sportB columnist Lowell Cohn reported last month, the Oakland A's are playing well on the road but poorly at home because their home uniforms are too tight, specifically in the crotch. Cohn suggested beefcake baseball, in which the uniform would consist solely of shoes, cap, and jockstrap. Speaking of which, David Lester suggests the Gay Games (formerly referred to as the Gay Olympic Games) could raise a lot of cash by selling used jock straps in The Advocate's pink pages.
