A Masterpiece of Mystery BSQQSGSQSQiaSliSlOOSIillllllllllllllll Reader wants no part of Queer Nation From R.D. WARREN, Houston It seems like everywhere you look nowadays, you see the words Queer Nation. They've got their stupid stickers up all over the place, the gay and (mainstream) newspapers have articles about them, and they're even on the (television) news. Enough is enough, already. What they are doing is taking away everything most gay people have worked for ao years. Their "proud" use of a nauseating word is making us the laughing stock of 1991.1 want no part of the "Queer Nation"—it's a silly, degrading, self-defeating nation that will do more harm than good to most of us. I am not "queer!' though I am gay and proud to be. I wonder if those people think about the possible indirect consequences of their "direct action!' or if they even care about anything but calling attention to themselves and their antics ... like ACT UP, they seem to be more concerned with making noise than making change. No wonder no body (sic) takes the gay community seriously. -Write Us The New Voice wants to know your views. Write us at 408 Avondale, Houston, TX 77006. Thank you. Gertrude Stein and Alice B.

"Replete with plenty of punning banter, Steinian parody, titillating trysts between the male characters and a few what the hell anachronisms, this is a campy delight of e comic mystery." — Booklist THE CARAVAGGIQ SHAWL by Samuel M.

P-5; 40 Plympton St. Boston, MA 02118 Study finds white men most likely to get AIDS treatment drug PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP)-Access to the AIDS drug AZT may be based more often on race, sex, and a patient's insurance than on need, a study reports. After interviewing 880 AIDS patients in nine U.S. cities and counties, including New Orleans, researchers at Brown University and Rhode Island Hospital found white men appeared to have a better chance of AZT treatment than women and members of racial minorities. The conclusions of the study were pub lished recently in the Journal of General Internal Medicine, AZT is the only approved drug for treating and preventing deadly infections that occur when AIDS breaks down the body's immune system. Patients must be tested periodically to prevent damage to their blood-producing bone marrow cells. A white patient's chances of getting AZT were 73 percent higher than for nonwhites. Intravenous drug users were a little less than half as likely to get AZT as were those who did not use drugs. The researchers also found that patients with insurance were twice as likely to be offered the drug, even in states where people without insurance can get the drug free. "I don't think it's a conscious bias" said Dr. Tom J. Wachtel, a coauthor and director of Rhode Island Hospital's medical primary care unit. "Doctors are making assumptions inappropriately" based on stereotypes, he said. That might include beliefs that drug users are less likely to take the drug properly and that women might become pregnant, Wachtel said. AZT is not supposed to be taken during pregnancy. "I think doctors would need to have a very strong reason why they shouldn't offer AZT to slow progression of the disease" coauthor Dr. Michael D. Stein, director of the hospital's AIDS clinic, told The Providence Journal-Bulletin in an interview published Feb. 15. Anne Marie Silvia of Rhode Island Project AIDS said that for years AIDS activists had complained about bias in distribution of the drug- "There's an inherent bias in most of us since we've been raised in a world that is primarily sexist and homophobic," she said. Drug users also are looked down upon by society, Silvia said. "It shouldn't be happening" she said. AZT is very expensive and must be taken for a long time. The results show that "physicians will not prescribe a drug the patient can't pay for;' but they also may not have known about the free programs, Wachtel said. The researchers conducted interviews in Newark and Jersey City, N.J.; Dallas; Fort Lauderdale and Miami, Fla.; New Orleans; Seattle; Nassau County, N.Y.; and the small Texas community of Atlan- NewsLine: Austinl Shaman's Circle to host pride week gay men's gathering Historically, gay men have filled the role of thetribal shaman, facilitating explorations of the soul, say members of the Shaman's Circle, As healers, mediators, magicians, and spirit-medicine people, they balanced masculine with feminine and brought a deep sense of spirit idealism to the community, the organization believes. The spirit lives today, but often without awareness and recognition. Shaman's Circle honors this gay spirit in dividually. The group is planning a weekend of self empowerment by gay men in a tribal environment on June 28-30, during Austin's gay pride celebration. Partici pants will "celebrate a very powerful Gay Pride weekend claiming and honoring Gay masculinity...gay empowerment through a combination of tribal heritage, group experiences, gay culture, drumming and ritual," say organizers. Meals and lodging will be provided. Men of color, non-gay or bisexual men, and fathers and sons are welcome. The event will be held at Guadalupe River Ranch, in the Texas Hill Country. Registration (limited to 40 men, $225) deadline is April 15.
