Organizers plan to open the house at 2222 Chenevert December 1, after the building has been renovated. The facility will be known as the Montrose Guest Recovery House (MGRH) and will provide live-in accomodations, include ing three meals a day, for up to 14 recovering gay alcoholics at one time, ,said Patrick, treasurer of MGRH. (People involved with Alcoholic's Anonymous and related programs, by tradition, perfer not to have their full name in the media.) Patrick stressed that the MGRH would not be able to provide an alcohol detoxification program and such treatment would be done at an allied health care facility. MGRH will provide a supportive atmosphere for individuals to re-adjust to society and obligations in light of their sobriety, said Patrick. The recovery house grew out of an idea Conceived at the Lambda Center for Alcoholics, an affiliated but independent group of AA whose membership is predominantly gay, said Patrick, and the plans were sent into motion last May "with a handful of people and we've gone from there. We got our incorporation charter on June 21." Jeff, who haB been involved in the AA program and specifically with gay groups within AA since 1976, said that a gay recovery house was attempted once before in 1979, but did not last very long due to lack of support from the community. Operating costs for the first year have been estimated at $73,000 which will include physical operating costs and two salaries for experienced and professional managers. Patrick said some ofthe money needed will come from within the gay AA , community and through a series of fund- raising activities. He added that four accredited counselors who specialize in alcohol and drug abuse therapy have volunteered their time, for the first year at least. Some Politicians Support Controversial Gay Center in London By Lindsay Taylor International Gay News Agency At a meeting in London July 27, members of the ruling Labour group on the Greater London Council made clear that they strongly supported the establishment of a gay comunity center in the capital. The costs of setting up such a center are estimated at around $400,000 in the first year. Since Conservative opposition on the Greater London Council has in the past strongly opposed grants to gay groups, it is intended that a capital investment be made in the center to help secure it against possible future changes in the city's administration. At present plans are for a building for meetings, plus an information and gay rights service and a resource center for gay social, cultural, and political activities. A steering committee w.as set up, with six of the 12 places reserved for women. A full-time development worker was to be appointed. Most of the city's gay organizations seem enthusiastic about the proposal, though some have expressed reservations about the ability of lesbians and gay men to share the building without friction. Others have worried about the establishment of such centers consuming an inordinate amount of activists' energies. All agree, however, that it was vital to take advantage of this rare commitment to the gay community. Don't Spread It Around A Massachusetts entrepreneur hopes to take the worry out of being close with a new dating service, for herpes victims. New York magazine reports that Brent Deck, who suffers from herpes himself, sent flyers to physicians around the coun- try describing his "New Day Introductions." Says Deck: "The service is to help people with genital herpes meet other people with it on a confidential basis." He thinks the match-ups will eliminate the anxiety herpes victims have about exposing others to the disease. Deck says he needs 10,000 subscribers to show a profit. So far, only 40 people have agreed to shell out the fee: $75 a year, or $20 for a single date. But with 20 million victims of the fast- spreading, incurable venereal disease, you -'might say deck has latched onto a growth industry.
