'In 1986, one of the facts of life which aJI American~ need to face is that any penetrative spxual intercourse necessi­tates the use of prophylactics," said Eric Rofe~, executive diredor of The Gay & Lesbian C()mmunity Services Centt.'r De.spite evidence that oondoms are effective in decreasing the spread of the deadly AIDS virus. Archbishop Roger Mahony announced Dec 6 that the Los Angeles archdiocese would not support th{'> AIDS edu(·ation program aimed at Hispanic- parishoners. Mahony withdrew his support becauf;e the use of condoms was among the preventive measures recommended ma program sponsored by a consortium of 1:1 service organizations. His statement means church porperty cannot be used for lectures that are a part of the program. "The Roman CaholicChurch does not approve of the use of condoms," Mah­ony said. "In the issue of AIDS. such use implies either heterosexual promiscuity or homosexual activity The church approves of neither_" The Los Angeles area has the third highE"8t number of AIDS cases in the nation following New York and San Francisco. County health officials sav a total of 2~60 AIDS cases have been reported through Oct. :11, with another 17'2 suspected cases under investiga. tion. Victims of the disease are predomi­nant. y gay men. The latest controversy comes during a period of increasingly v<x·al Vatican condemnation of homo­sexual activity and reiteration of the church's opposition to all contracep· llvel'\ Chun·h officials have suggested sex­ual abstinenc(• as a way to combat AIDS, which the national Centers for Disease Control said has claimed nearly 16.fX)(J viC"tim!'. It savs th(• number of cases is douhling e~·ery 1:J months Sheila Briggs, a th(>()logy professor at the Univer:-;ity of Southern California, said, .. AbstinenC'e is not a very viable piece of advice for the Roman Catholic population as it exists today " Briggs ~aid that despite church doc­trine. there is statsistic·al evidence that the nation's 02.f> million Catholics are more .. irresponsible" in their sexual practices than non-Catholics "There is alos evidence to suggest that Catholics have a higher incidence of AIDS than the general population," she said, citing a survey in New Wave Ministry, a journal produced by Catholic lesbians and gay men. In Los Angeles. which has the nation's largest Hispanic population, the archdiocese's refusal to support the AID8 education program has been cri ti<:ized by Catholic lesbians and gay men. They cited statistics showing 14 per­cent of AIDS victims are Hispanic more than doublE• th(' perC'entage of His pan· ics in tht• total population, and said Ian· guagt" barrit-rs have impeded the diss(·mination of information. Mahony, who has been active in the Hispanic community, said he would reconsider his support of the education program if condoms are not included in the presentation. But Judy Siegel, directorof education and training for AIDS Project Los Angeles, one of the sponsors, said, "You can' talk about prevention if you don't talk about condoms." Professor Briggs. who is Catholic, said Mahony is hamstrung by church doctrine. "To be fair to Bishop Mahony and other U.S. bishops. they are aware of the church's responsibility Cin fighting AIDS)," she said "Unfortunately. the American bi!->hop:.; are in a difficuJt position because the Vatican ft"(')s at the moment that the l' S. church is too liberal in its views on S{•X "This continuing pressure on the bishop8 to reaffirm the church's teach· ings places the bishops in a dilemma wh(•n presented with departing with church teachings." Earlier this year, the Rev. Charles Curran lost his license as an official church tht-ologian at Catholic Univer­sity in Washington, D.C., and Archbi­shop Raymond Hunthausen of Seattle was stripped of manv of his dutie:.; llt'caust> the Vati<·an w-s unhappy with th('ir hht'Ta) stands on moral issues. Curran maintains that tontraception is not 'intrinsicallv evil" and that homosexual acts "i~ the context of a loving relationship striving for perm an· ency" can he "morally good." Hunthaus(•n , meanwhile, permitted church affiliation with gay groups and sterilization in Catholic· hospitals. The cast's 8parked a fire of revolt among lT.S. churth leaden;. But in November. after an agonizing debate, bishops de<'ided to back the pope.

DECEMBER 16, 1966 I MONTROSE VOICE 3 AIDS: New Findings May Show Why Gay Men Victims By Jan Ziegler WASHINGTON <UPIJ-The AIDS virus is capable of infecting cE'lls in the colon and rectum, a finding that may help explain the high proportion of AIDS among gay men, researchers said last Friday. Dr. Malcolm A. Martin, chief of the laboratory of molecular microbiology at the National Institute of Allergy and lnffftiou!i Disease8, said the finding was unexpffted because it was thought th<' AIDS virus attacked only lympho­cytes and monocytes, both white blood cells crucial to the body's immune sys· tc·m . Howewr, the finding may help explain how the virus is transmittRcl during anal intercourse, he said, a tech­nique favored by many gay men and practiced occasionally by heterosexu­als. "It's thought the reasons gay men become infected is because there's a lot of trauma (to rectal tissues)" during nnul intercourse, he said, allowing pas sage of the virus from semen into the rC'cipient's bloodstream through minute tears. But he said the research shows "no trauma is necessary. Anal intercourse, whether it's heterosexual or homosex· ual, might hr dangerous to one's health." "The big overall picture is maybe the portal of entry in people who practice anal intercourse is the colon first. The virus can be transferred to lympho(·ytes and they gain access to the cirudation. That'R the way you set up this rip­roaring infection." Once the acquired immune deficiency svndrome virus attacks cells of the i~mune system, in about 30 percent of cases, resistance to infection is gradu­ally destroyed and the victims fall prey to a variety of diseases. Martin and his colleagues did not find infected colorectal cells in people carry­ing the AIDS virus. He said that is the next stC'p in resarch.

Because it is hard to keep this kind of cell alive in the lab, the ones Martin's team used were cancerous and were thus able to continue multiply­ing. They found three of the five cell sam­ples from the colon and rectum could be infected with the AIDS virus, while none of other types of cells-such as lung, pancreas and ovary-the scien­tists studied were susceptible. The colorectal cells were found to prouduce the kind of RNA. or genetic material, that directs production of a molecule called CD4. This same mole· cule is found on the surface of the T4 lymphocyte and the other immune syU>m cells known to be attacked by the AIDS virus. "It's very likely if you look hard enough, if you do studies with fresh nor­mal cells, a simliar thing might occur with vaginal cells," Martin said. Scientists have shown AIDS can be transmitted through normal heterosex­ual intercourse. It is uncertain how the virus can be passed from an infected woman to a man, although scientists have theorized tiny abrasions on the penis may permit the virus to enter. Although some scientists believe the virus also infects certain cel1s of thE' brain, Martin said his team's finding that the AIDS virus is carried in mono cytes disproves this. Protein May Help Bolster Immune System CAMBRIDGE, Mass. (UPl)-Scientists have used genetic engineering tech­niques to produce large amounts of a natural human protein that may be use­ful in treating cancer and other dis­eases. the researchers reported last week, Dec. R. The protein, known as macrophage colony stimulating factor-M-CSF or CSF-1-stimulates the activity of blood cells known as macrophages, which are involved in coordinating the body's defense against disease. The substance may one day be used to strengthen the body's ability to fight cancers and other diseases by boosting patients' immune systems, according to researchers at the Genetics Institute Inc., a biotechnology firm. The company has begun testing the substance in animals and plans to begin human testing in 1987, officials said. Natural M-CSF has been isolated in small amounts from human urine. Working with Japanese scientists, the Genetics Institute team showed that the genetically engineered substance is identical to the natural protein, they said. The substance is the third blood cell growth factor developed by the com­pany. The other two are granulocyte monocyte colony stimulating factor (GM-CSF) and multi-CSF, which is also known as inter)eukin-3. Scientists are testing those substan­ces and several similar ones for treating a variety of diseases, including cancer and diseases of the immune system, such as AIDS. Ors. Gordon Wong and Steve Clark of the Genetics Institute presented. their work with M·CSF at a meeting of the American Society of Hematology in San Francisco.

But the collection here is not just an ordinary church library. One of the two separate collections of the MCCR library, the gay archives, boasts 5000 individual book titles, all with some relevance to gay life. The present archives resulted from MCCR's acquisition of the Texas Gay Archives from Integrity t Houston and Wilde-n­Stein Books, combined with the church's own collection of gay and les­bian literature. The church's librarian and arch ivist, Charles (who asked that his last name not be used), began coll ecting theme books in 1977, a nd the library has been acquiring an average 7-10 books per week since then. Some a re popular, cur­rent gay t itles; others a re ra re, obscure or hard to find. Ma ny a re d uplicates, which are kept separately to be loaned or traded Charles outlined h is pa instaking pro· cess of acquiring desired books. Usu­ally, books of all types are purchased at giveaway prices at garage sales and public library used book sales. These are then traded to used book stores for titles on a bibliography list kept al the a rchives. Former Houston gay publicatwns, from left, a copy of "The Albatross" from 1965; Volume 1, No. 1 of the prodecessor to the "Montrose Voice," the "Montrose Star;" and "Contact" a local gay paper from the early 70s Although the process of collecti ng the books is time consuming, it is usua1ly not expensive. " [ have no competition," Charles claims. "There just aren't any stores that buy books." Those that do, he said, pay the traders so 1ow that it is almost a waste of time to bring the books in. For this reason, and because books don't sell quickly at garage sales, tross, probably the city's first openly published gay newspaper. The oldest gay periodical on file is a 1954 issue of the Los Angeles paper One. Visitors to the library are allowed to checkout most books, but not periodi­cals unless the archives has duplicate copies. Persons wanting access may ask the church secretary to open the rooms, Charles said. In addition to the gay collection, MCCR keeps a library ofreligious litera­ture and art books that rivals any to be found in Houston, Charles said. "Our theology section includes many intellectua l quality books that are prob­ably inaccessible outside of a major seminary," he sated. Most religious bookstores and church libraries in town concentrate mainly on "pop theology" and ins pi rational books, Charles added. MCCR's religious collection contains around :Jf><JO titles. Having the archives at the church is probably a tremendous advantage, the librarian said "The church is going to be here for at least the next 30 years," he said. "Its budget is about as large as all of the other gay organizations in town put together, except the AIDS groups. To me, this is the most logical, secure loca­tion for the collection." Some of the books in MCCR's gay archival collection Charles said he is against donating any part of the archives to the new city branch library to be built in Montrose. Because the bibliography used by the library is 10 years old, it must con stantly be updated. Charles said he watches for book reviews that mention a new gay title, and is usually adding new book~ to the list even as he ch('('ks off tho.se that are acquirf:>d .

For the la:-;t month, the Austin entre­preneur has ~old 100 percent pure urine-collected from a Bible study group-lo people facing job·related drug tests. Nightbyrd announced Dec. I 0 he is taking his campaign a step further-a Urine Ball designed to raise public awareness and money for a legal defense fund against drug te~aing. The ball, scheduled for Wed., Dec. 17 at the Ritz Theater on Sixth Street, will feature musica] guests, contests and a !9;l0s style dance production called "Urine the Money" by Esther's Follies. Nightbyrd, 32, said he has sold more than 150 clean urine samples in plastic bags for $49.95 each. He demonstrated his latest effort, a "freeze dried" version of urine that can be mixed with water. Nightbyrd said he sees nothing wrong with making money in the sup­port of a good cause.

"How many death squads can I loan you?" "That's not what I had in mind, Colonel." "Well, my goodn(·ss, how can you exJ><'('t mr to f(•store democracy to my beloved Nicaragua if you let people go around hlabhing whatever's on their minds'!" Ba1'iil frowned. "What we need from you is a c1uirk victory to restore public conficl<•nre in your Freedom Fight<•rs."

Nightbyrd said his previous supplies of drug-free urine, which came from senior citizens in a Bible study group, are no longer available. He declined to reveal his new ~ource, saying it might be cut off as well. He said he has been deluged with requests for pure urine as more and more companies require drug testing for current and prospective employees. Nighlbyrd and Harrington con· demoed the practice, saying current testing methods produce a false positive rate of up to 30 percent. "It's not the American way," sayd Nightbyrd, who is also selling a $5 pam· phi et called "Success in Urine Testing." It details how to avoid false positive results and pass a urinalysis. The Uri neBall will be held two days after a scheduled Dec. 15 hearing on a lawsuit filed by an Austi n woman to hold random drug tests rquired by her employer, Minco Technology Labs. Harrington, who is representing the woman , said the suit is the first in Texas against a private employer over the issue of drug testing. Brenda Jennings alleges in the s uit that such a test would ,..;olate her right to privacy. The Urine Ball-with its theme of "Pee for Pleasure, Not for Employ· ment"-will feature members of Asleep al the Wheel, Rote! and the Hot Toma· toes, Urine Savages, and a uri ne-testing costume contest and a urine song con· test. All proceeds go the the Urine Defense Fund ~Pl~y ~Safe! ADVERTISING PROVIDING A SERVICE'?

Aren't there a Jot of them sud denly? Seems like none of the theater~ used to pay much attention to the sea· son. Well. Theater Under the Stars has had special performances and the Alley did Seasons Greetings. But this year there is a rush to plays specifically about Christmas. And this new musical revue is the best of the lot. These are all new songs by Phillip Charlton (with some assistance on the lyrics by Max Pearson). They are all so l{Ood that it's something of a dilemma. The show is just a little too long. They ought to cu tone song. I know the one I'd suggest, but I'm sure it'd be someone else's favorite. This is a very mellow show. Many of the songs are ba11ads and several are even blues. They are very touching while you hear them, but the show's end result is far from sad. There are also patter songs reminis­cent of Sondheim and a gospel number for the eleven o'clock song. The first art ends Y.;th a medley of counterpointed Chritmns carols, like those wonderful duets Carol Burnett used to do. Remember Carol and Bubbles? Carol and Julie? If not, grab an old record After you see this show. of coun;e! Pear~on has also written a scene to introduce each song. Most of thl'm would ~tand alone, but they mean more in context. The scenes are very good in and of themselves, too. Tammy Gilbert and Philip Hafer are chameleons. Much of the joy in this show comes from watching them take on the colorings of each character They are ably surrounded by such as Jared Dean Cooley. Ginny Lang. Steve Garfinkle and Gary Powell cthat tall man with the beautiful voice formerly seen at Rii;iky Business). Also, Melissa O'Connel. Chandra D. Wilson and Tam· ara L. Siler (who here does a quiet, warm. controlled performance in con· trast to, and just as good as, the Minelli· like super-exuberance I have seen her cut loose with before). Jon Eisenstein, the younge:;t member of the cast. is cute and funny. He alternates performances with Michael Waghalter So here's an eggnog toast to director John Vreeke. This show would stand a good chance of putting the Grinch him· 'Olf into the rii:ht mood. o The Marriage of Bette and Boo If you like Chnstopher Durani:'s work, you'll probably love the Alley's The Marria1<• of Better and Boo. Many of the flaws found in his other plays are cor· rected here. Many of his characteristic strengths are shown off, too. For the first time, he has found an ending to a play. So far he's been great with be!(innin!(s and middles, but this is the first truly satisfying ending he's shown us . Everything is believable! That is not to say that any of this could actually hapPf'n in the ••real world." But. in con­text. even the dead baby jokes make sense. Durang reserves his fantastical char· acters for those in positions of au th or· ity, particularly the church. One of the protagonist's grandfathers cannot Tammy Gtlbert and Phillip Hafer in "Christmas Times" at Main Street Theater SJ><'ak an intelligble word (Wyman Pen· dleton>. Neither can a divorce trial law­yer When a pnest (Iggie Wolfington) holds a marriage seminar. it soon degenerates into watching him give hilariou£.; impersonations of bacon fry­ing and coffee percolating. Durang has no sympathy for those who make their livings by counseling others on how to live. The subject is one of the strongest Durang has dealt with yet-alcoholism. The alcoholic (Adam LeFevre) gradu· ally Joi-;es touch with reality. The spouse {Marilyn Macintyre) loses all the kind· nei-;s she once had and becomes a shrew. The •on CLeii:h Selting) is left with little but confui-;ion and dread of his own des· tiny. Ai-; an ex-shrew, I can tell you that this play is very, very real. is very, very rarely to my taste. But I know manv ofvou Jove his work. So, like th<• old re~iewer who had the bad luck not to like Carol Channing, I can only say that if you like this kind of thing, you like it. o Notes Caught sight of Timothy Arrington going in thl' stage door on crutches Seems he fell and hurt his foot, but not so that you'd know while he's on!-itageat in the Alley's Trdau·m·y of the "Wells." o Celebrate B'days 16-Arthur C Clark, Noel Coward, Geori:ey Santayana. 17-Paul Cadmus, William Safire, Dorothy !..
