I've been where they are and I would not return for anything. It's going to be hard for them to get away, too. It may be the hardest thing they will ever do. I was not a wanted person when I was born. My parents were not disappointed in me per se, they just failed to see how I could be comfortably accommodated into their plans. Occasionally I was tucked under an adult's arm and toted about to meet their appointments. More often I was just ignored. Day-to-day I was tolerated by my folks as the family mascot. They discussed my disabilities and immaturity, bad coordination and their embarrassment of me as if I were a dumb pet. The most frequently mentioned word regarding me was "stupid." If I had been a pet I would have been left behind at a rest stop. To the neighbors, and everyone else whose admiration they coveted, my parents were a little defensive of me, as if to suggest that I was not representative of their "other" children. I used to fantasize that they loved me, but that for some political reason I did not grasp, they were not really free to say so. Consequently I never felt like I was one of them. I never felt like an integrated part of that family. I imagine the Log Cabin Republicans feel the same way. After soliciting a donation from them, and getting a check for one thousand dollars. Bob Dole returned their contribution when he realized that they were gay. That must have hurt, but probably not as much as seeing Dole publicly waffle on his position. That made them goofy with hope that perhaps it was all a misunderstanding, and they were not an embarrassment after all. Hope inspired swift action and the aspiring Republicans applied—and were teasingly accepted—as a full participating member of the Texas Republican Convention, complete with their own booth and full-page advertisement in the program. Surely ihis meant acceptance! They were members of the family, now! But The Family realized their error (or tired of their joke) and dispatched a severe rejection and refund of payments offered for said privileges. Membership in this organization is not for sale, they sniffed. Dale Carpenter says that the Republicans should "live up to their word." I think that they have. I think what Carpenter wants is for them to change their word—and their heart. He said so himself when he said he hoped the party officials would "reverse their blatantly discriminatory decision." I don't think that is going to happen. "But no matter what they say or do," he said, "We are not going away." Andrew Hodges and David Hutter had it right in 1977 (With Downcast Gays): "We have been taught to hate ourselves. How thoroughly we have learned the lesson!" Dale Carpenter needs to find himself a new family. I know. Wave at Jazz in the Pride Parade. She wilt be marching with her family. The Houston Pride Band . AVES presents Latino Pride Gala Houston—On Saturday, June 22, 1996, Amigos Volunteers in Education & Services (AVES), Inc. will present "Latino Pride Gala", an official event of Houston's Lesbian &. Gay Pride Week. Major sponsors are National Intervention, Merck & Co., Mendez Counseling and Xavier Luna. Mr. TGRA 1997 Candidate. The Gala is a semi-formal dance which continues the tradition begun 18 years ago to celebrate pride in being gay/lesbian and Latino/a and is open to everyone. The event will be held at the Edwin Hornberger Conference Center, former site of the Shamrock Hotel, in the Texas Medical Center (2151 W. Holcombe @ Shamrock), from 8:00 p.m. until 2:00 a.m. Admission to the Gala is a $30 tax-deductible donation ($40/ door), which includes open bar all evening. Latino music (Tejano, salsa, cum- bia, etc.) as well as country/western and olher dance music will be provided by the Accent Band. AVES is a non-profit community based AIDS services organization- The mission of the agency is to promote a healthy community through education, disease prevention, advocacy and direct care to Latinos and other historically under-served populations. AVES works to empower these communities by respecting differences in language, culture and sexual identity. Those receiving services from AVES include men, women and children, 70% are Hispanic, 20% White and 10% African American. Approximately 70% of the population served is gay. All proceeds from the Gala will enable AVES to continue its mission. Angela Mora, Executive Director of AVES, is pleased to present this event to show her gratitude to the lesbian and gay community. "I found out recently that the Latino community would not have the dance they usually have during Pride Week and, with the support of my staff, our Board of Directors and some individuals from the lesbian and gay community decided that we would take the responsibility 0f organizing a similar event. Considering the immeasurable amount of support that AVES has received from the Latino lesbian and gay community and the gay community in general, this is the least we could do." Mora stated. She added. "Through this celebration, everyone will have an enjoyable evening and at the same time allow us to raise funds to enhance our programs for the benefit of •he entire AIDS community." AVES will also participate in the Pride Parade and Festival. Advance tickets can be obtained through 8:00 p.m.. Friday, June 21, at the AVES office. 4126 Southwest Freeway, Ste. 1717 (Twelve Oaks Tower). Tickets will be available at the door on the night of the event. For more information, call 626-2837.
