AIDS: More Than Hope 


by ALEX MARSHALL 

Two years ago, no, even a year ago I couldn’t have 
written this article. The many times that I’ve had 
to write about AIDS I felt I might only be another 
misinformed, disinformed, or uninformed lay 
commentator, adding to the depression of those 
who had the disease and those who love them. 
Time and again I read the statistics that wrote off 
real people as only numbers, dead, people I knew. 
Now there is not a glimmer, but a ray of hope... 
maybe even rays. When the virus was first 
isolated, let’s call it HIV, the press immediately 
Jumped to the question of a vaccine. The 
thoughtful few realized that a vaccine does 
nothing for those who have the disease. 

Back in the ’60’s, Dr. Jerome Herowitz developed 
azidothymidine (AZT) as a possible treatment for 
cancer. It did not prove effective, but now Dr. 
Samuel Broder, Associate Director of the Clinical 
Oncology Program at the National Institute for 
Cancer, has found that AZT has, in clinical tests, 
been proven to help in the restoration of the 
immune system and certainly might just prove to 
be a chemoprophylaxis for AIDS. A chemo. . .what? 
Let’s begin by understanding that many times 
science has stumbled on things that work, but 
they don’t know why. Aspirin is a good example. 
They have also learned to distinguish viruses from 
parasites and even different types of viruses. A 
virus cannot always be cured nor a parasite killed; 
but sometimes their growth can be arrested and 
controlled. Malaria, a disease caused by a parasite, 
can be controlled. Leprosy, a viral infection, is 
controllable but not curable. As with syphilis, 


people assume that the disease is cured, but while 


they no longer suffer from its effects nor 
transmit it, their blood will always test positive 
for it. A chemoprophylaxis is a substance capable 
of arresting or controlling the malady so that the 
infected person can lead a normal life. It may also 
prevent the disease from developing in an 
uninfected person. Unfortunately, AIDS is a 
retrovirus, it combines with DNA. Thus a baby 
born to a mother who has the disease, will be born 
with it. 

In addition to azidothymidine (AZT), Dr. Broder’s 
group is working with ribavirin, foscarnate and 
dideoxydicetidine. Dideoxydicetidine has received 
good preliminary reports from Dr. Robert Gallo of 
the N.CI and, incidentally, was developed along 
with AZT. It could well be that different AIDS 
patients suffering from different opportunistic 
infections may respond better to one of these 
other drugs. From all I have been able to gather 
from the multitude of theories about the origins 
and nature of AIDS, it would seem that there is not 
one cause, but more likely several conditions 
which allow the disease to develop. That would 
explain why someone who has been exposed to HIV 
does not develop AIDS. One of the viruses that 
seems to set the stage for AIDS is Hepatitis B. If 
that were true, then some light would be shed on 
the predominance of AIDS in the gay community, 
since Hepatitis B is prevalent among us. Again, I 
am afraid of being misleading. Keep in mind that 
all of this is theory. We generally accept that 
cigarette smoking causes lung cancer, yet many 
cases of lung cancer appear in people who don't

16 February 1987 


Greetings, 


Enclosed is your February copy of the Lambda Valley Monthly. In the 
center page is the Calendar of Events for the Center, as usual. There are 


several corrections and additions that can be noted at this time. 






1. The lecture on the 19th! Ms. Hassan's lecture has been postponed be-= 
cause of a scheduling conflict. In replace of that will be Dr. Rapael Mendez, 
Executive Director of the New Alliance Party. Dr. Mendez is a trained psych- 
Oologist and heads a political party that is aimed at uniting segments of society 
that have not been included in the mainstream parties. He will be speaking on 
"Gays and our political Future”. I hope everyone will make an attempt to be 
i ear eWenneneii on wseatowel tour and we were lucky to be able to have 
his schedule include the Lehigh Valley. The lecture is at 8:00 pom. 

2. Please add to the schedule that every Friday is Your Turf. Your Turf 
is a club for gay, lesbian, bisexual, and accepting people under the age of 25, 
There is always an interest to have a group for people under 25 and the Center 
is lucky to have two people willing to coordinate the effort. Shawn and Ethan 
have put together a project that is sure to draw people and add yet another 


service to the many now offered at Lambda Center, 


3. ASC's Training session on the 7th of March is postponed, and add to 
the schedule a HOTLINE training sesgion on the 14th of March at 7:30 p.m. 
a 


At the last Board of Directors meeting we seated the new Board that was 
elected at the Annual meeting on the 30th. Reorganization includes, Brian 


Marks, Vice President; Patt McGee, Secretary. Chairpersons of the standing 


committees have yet to be selected. Paul Kendall, past president was selected 

to remain on the Executive Committee and we are fortunate to retain his expertise 
I would hope that if anyone has any concerns they would make them known 

to us through mail, Hotline ie, 3 other means. We can only be as effective as 


our membership allows us to be. , Yours...

Bright New Beginning 


by DESIREE 

Wee, it’s now 1987. A new year. A new set of New 
Year’s resolutions. We all have those things we 
simply must somehow achieve within the next 364 
1/4 days. While you are drawing up your lists, 
consider the following: 

No one will get out of this world alive, and you 
can't take it with you. So share the wealth and the 
smiles, and you'll be richer by far. 

Good health can’t be bought; taking care of 
yourself is priceless. 

Hugs are wonderful: not only are they free, they 
are also a chance to receive while giving. (Resolve 
to get at least three daily.) 

Try talking less for one day. You'll be amazed 
at what you learn when you listen. 

Success in life is not necessarily judged by your 
bank account. Be thankful for the small fortunes 
in your life. 

A membership at the Lehigh Valley's 
Gay/Lesbian Community Center is still available 
at 1986 prices! 

Join in the support of the Lambda Center and 
come on down for Womyn’s Night. The activities 


by GREG NEW HOLLAND 


begin at 7:30 pm every first and third Monday of 
the month. The new management is seeking your 
ideas and suggestions for new topics and events — 
let’s hear from you. 

I myself am just beginning to take down my 
holiday decorations. [ll use any excuse to have 
friends get together to talk. Sometimes you find 
yourself without someone there to talk to or 
perhaps feeling that no one will understand. The 
Lambda Center offers a 24-hour hotline service 
with trained individuals available to listen to you 
and for referral. You won’t get all your problems 
solved, but you'll find a willing ear. The hotline 
can be reached at 433-5444. 

The new year brings a new schedule of events 
for Lesbians Unlimited of the Lehigh Valley. 
Resolve right now not to miss out on the fun and 
get your name on the mailing list. LU.LV. can be 
reached at P.O. Box 665 Trexlertown, PA 18087. 

The new year has just begun, holding promise 
of wonderful new things to accomplish and 
fabulous new friends to meet. Start right now by 
joining the Lambda Center and discover the 
energy of women together at the Womyn's Night! 4 


Alone 


Alone: without you 
just wondering what to do; 
to live or die, 
to laugh or cry. 
Alone: no warmth by my side 
feeling like I should hide; 


in a shell, 


in a prison cell. 
Alone: just the feeling alone 
waiting for you to call on the phone; 
to say hello, 
to make my feelings grow. 
Alone: no warming eyes 
the feeling at the end of good—byes, 
the feeling at the end of good—byes. 








continued from page 1 


Another thing which further complicates the 
treatment of AIDS is that its attack on the 
immune system allows other diseases to develop. 
Dr. Broder points out that in some cases of Karposi 
or Lymphoma, common in AIDS patients, the 
disease will take on a life of its own. Thus the 
doctor must treat two or more diseases at once. 
That could mean that the prescribed medications 
could work at cross purposes or that their 
interaction might be harmful to the patient. 

In examining what Dr. Broder has said about 
AZT and AIDS, it seemed to me that he was 
suggesting that the patient might have to 
continue taking the medication in order to 
continue to suppress the virus. That does not 
sound too bad to me. After all, people with high 
blood pressure have to take medication forever 
just as do some diabetics. One patient on AZT since 
April in the government testing program has done 
very well Gary Starliper, from San Francisco, had 
come done with pneumocystis carini pneumonia 
when he was diagnosed as having AIDS. Starliper 
told the Advocate that the only side effects he 
noticed were "flu-like symptoms” and he was 
"mildly anemic after he started to take AZT, but 
these ill effects lasted only a few weeks'' From 
then on, he started to feel well and gained weight. 
He will stay on the drug. Other good news is that 
Burroughs—Wellcome, the manufacturer of AZT, 
can produce whatever amount of AZT is needed. 
AZT is certainly not the end of the AIDS crisis, but 
at least it offers hope to those who see themselves 
under the shadow of death. 

Since I first prepared this article, I have 
stumbled on two other developments of great 
importance to the AIDS problem. Naturally, the 
production of a vaccine for the AIDS virus has been 
perhaps the most puzzling problem facing AIDS 
researchers. Scientists writing in the December 
12th issue of the journal Sctence report that a 
segment of gpl20 protein, which coats the AIDS 
virus, might be a better vaccine candidate than 
the whole protein. Both induce antibodies in the 
blood. This new research has been conducted by 
Dr. Scott Putney and colleagues of the Repligen 
Corp, a biotechnology firm in Cambridge, 
Massachusetts. The segment, as I understand it, 
stimulates high levels of antibodies that 
neutralize the virus in test animals. Its 
superiority over the whole protein is that it does 
not bind with the white blood cells as the whole 
protein does. Cell binding may mask other defense 
mechanisms which could fight off the virus. 





Dr. Robert Gallo of the National Cancer 
Institute, a co— discoverer of the AIDS virus, is 
enthusiastic about the latest results and has 
begun testing the experimental vaccine in 
chimpanzees. One of the most difficult problems 
in creating a vaccine for AIDS is that the virus 
mutates rapidly, and there are many varieties of 
it. If the segment of the protein gpl20 is stable 
and is the part which produces the antibodies, 
then it alone can be reproduced to make a vaccine 
effective against all the varieties. However, if the 
fragment proves to be variable, then researchers 
would have the even more complicated task of 
coming up with a combination vaccine to handle 
all the varieties. 

The second AIDS related discovery was by Dr. 
Vittorio Manzari of the University of Rome, who 
has isolated a virus called HTLV-—V, the probable 
cause of Lymphoma. Lymphoma is one of the 
opportunistic viruses that kills AIDS patients. This 
discovery underscores the wide variety of benefits 
to science in general coming from AIDS research. 
These HTLV viruses are really what are called 
retro—viruses, and, according to Dr. Manzari, they 
may be responsible for more deaths than was © 
thought. 

Manzari was a student of Dr. Gallo, who 
discovered HTLV-I and HTLV-I, both cause forms 
of leukemia, and HTLV-II, the AIDS virus. HTLV-IV 
is an AlDS-like virus, discovered in Africa, which 
appears not to cause the disease. the discovery of 
this new HTLV virus leads to speculation that 
these retro-viruses may be the cause of many 
unexplained deaths. 7 

AIDS research is far from over, and both a cure 
or treatment and a vaccine are not around the 
corner, but the fast pace that we are seeing in 
scientific progress certainly would lead to the hope 
that they are on the horizon. 

It used to really annoy me when | would read in 
the ‘breeder’ press that AIDS was a "disease of 
homosexual men, drug addicts, Haitians, etc.’ 
They dropped the Haitians, and now they seem to 
have dropped us. In the November 5, 1986 issue of 
the Morning Call, the Philippine government 
asked the US. for assurance that the men 
stationed at our naval and air stations there are 
free of the AIDS virus. It appears that the 
government has an outbreak of AIDS among the 
prostitutes who cater to the bases. The article did 
not carry one mention of homosexuality. a.) 


Editorial 


by BOB SWEENEY 

First we had the Coors Brewing Company with 
their discrimination against homosexual 
employees, then the Christian Schmidt Brewing 
Company with their derogatory campaign, 
pushing their product on the macho ethic, and 
now, the biggest and latest slap in the face, | feel, 
has come from Delta Airlines. 

It started, in 1985, when two jets collided at a 
Dallas airport. The survivors of the victims began 
a lengthy law suit claiming the airline was 
negligent. Specifically, the parents of a gay male 
killed in the crash sued Delta for one million 
dollars, claiming the airline was responsible. 

Throughout the litigation the lawyers 
representing the airline argued the sum should be 
lower because a gay man would not have lived as 
long as a straight man since he probably would 
have contracted a deadly disease. I never realized 
that being psychic was a prerequisite for pasing 
the bar examination.

Rainbow Mountain Resort is the !Easy, Friendly Place To Be! 


In essence, the lawyers were saying that a 
gay/lesbian life is worth less than a heterosexual 
one —— which is utter nonsense! A life is a life, no 
matter what sexual orientation. 

Fortunately, the jury sided with the parents. 

The ramifications, had the decision gone the 
other way, would have been far-reaching. Crimes 
against homosexuals would carry a_ lesser 
punishment than those same crimes when 
committed against heterosexuals. In the long run, 
it would give more incentive to violence against 
gays. 

I propose to you, the community, to hit these 
companies where they live: their bank accounts. 
Make them think twice before issuing these inane 
comments and policies. We have the power! 

When you plan your next vacation or business 
trip, remember not to fly Delta, where your life is 
worthless.

Dear Community, 


I have recently made a realization that I though 
worth sharing. Rummaging through my 
currently less than well organized mind, I found 
THE IDEA. 

THE IDEA was in a terrible state of disuse, 
abandoned, and deserted. The more I though about 
its condition, the more I became concerned. I 
stared down at THE IDEA for a while, picked it up, 
handled it and thought it. I was surprised at how 
unfamiliar it felt. 

THE IDEA should have been polished and 
glistening with use, the way good silver is. It 
should have had the deep rich glow of a pearl worn 
repeatedly against the skin. 

THE IDEA is being a human betng. Confused 
as to why I should be so concerned with the idea of 
being a human being? 

The idea of being a human being encompasses a 
broad range of concepts. The statement, 'l am a 
human being?’ says a lot — not very concise, 
rather comprehensive. 

Referring to myself as a human being does not 
lock me into a singule mode of behavior or 
personal attributes. It does leave room, though, for 
personal expression. A human being has fears, 
joys, accomplishments, failures, like and dislikes. 
Human beings have contributions to make and 
needs to be met. 

The fears, joys, accomplishments, failures, likes 
and dislikes, even the contributions and needs of a 
human being are infinite. The lists that could be 
articles under those categories are infinite. Wow! 
All that potential and reality in one person. 

Well, fm not the only human being. Me plus 
you equals two human beings. All the categories 
and lists double. Holy Toledo! (excuse my French, 
this excites me). Think of all the people out there 
with their lists and categories. People are really 
something. Everyone of them/you is a human 
being. 


So what’s the point? (yes, folks, there is a point). 
As I alluded earlier, 1 haven’t been thinking of 
myself in such terms lately, and by the behavior I 
have witnessed and the attitudes I have perceived, 
a lot of other people haven’t either. 

Please correct me if I am wrong (I am sure those 
offended will have no shortage of words), but a lot 
of people I have encountered narrow their personal 
description and self image down to a singular item 
in those vast lists previously mentioned. People, 
myself included, use the word homosexual as a 
noun: 'T am a homosexual?’ That doesn’t say a 
whole lot nor is it very comprehensive. Such a 
statement, taken as a point of view, limits 
personal description to sexual orientation only. It 
lacks scope and potential. 

The use of homosexual as a singular description 
is demeaning to the one applying the description 
and insulting to the one being described (''Oh, he’s 
a homosexual." What does that mean?). To refer to 
someone as nothing more than his sexual 
preference is to limit him to nothing more than a 
trophy stripped of personal dignity. Such action 
lacks respect for the person and exemplifies the 
actor’s lack of character. 

There shouldn’t be any shame connected with 
being homosexual. One's pride and feeling of 
self-worth should be built on a more solid 
foundation, a foundation inclusive of one’s 
individualist talents, idiosyncrasies, and flaws. 
Someone who reduces oneself and those around to 
what they do in the bedroom is difficult to respect. 

In next issue’s insights, I would like to address 
the building of a solid foundation and its effect on 
self-respect. I welcome any comments/criticisms 
on this or personal insights on topics to be covered. 

Thank you for your time,

diverse group of events in the three year history of the Lambda Center. Truly there is 
a place for EVERYONE at LAMBDA. it's up to us to take that place... 


PARTIES AND SOCIAL EVENTS: The first of these falls on the 13th of Feb. when we 
hold our 2nd Annual Valentine's Day Party and Raffle. Tickets for the raffle went on

Laundarette- Anyone who has seen this gay oriented film can attest to the popularity and 
will add that if you haven't seen it ...Well what are you waiting for? ###Included in 
the party schedule are two coffee house nights— Of importance is the one on March 13th is 
a special St. Patrick's Day Party(It'll be a night when you wont be able to tell the 
fairies from the leprechauns. ) 


LECTURE NIGHT: Invited to address the Lehigh Valley is Rashada Lorraine Hassan, Ms, 
Hassen is executive director of BEBASHI (Blacks Educating Blacks About Sexual Health Issues) 
BEBASHI is based in Philadelphia. The lecture will begin at 8:00p.m. and is free to 
the general public. This lecture is the Lambda Center's participation in Allentoen's 
Black History celebration. So mark the 19th on your calendar for this event. 


HOUSEKEEPING HINTS NOT BY HELOISE: It is and always has been the Lambda Center's aim 
to be attractive to the entire lesbian and gay community. It effort to do that we need 
the volunteer help that we have been always lucky to find. The Center functions with four 
standing committees; Finance, Center Development and Communications, Services, and Program. 
Fach of these committees is vital to the life and existance of Lambda. It is in that 
knowledge that we request that you take the time to consider being more active in its 
operation. The committees meet, for the most part, once a month. The time and effort 
you donate will be greatly appreciated. 


THEY NEED OUR HELP AND THEY'RE A*S*C-ing- The Lehigh Valley AIDS Services Center(ASC), 
a service project of Lambda Center is conducting a training program for "Buddies". 
The number of cases of AIDS mounts by the week and the need for trained buddies mounts along 
with it. To be a Buddy you must have this training. However, if you take the training 
you are under know obligation to be a Buddy. ASC remains commited to its goal of prviding 
quality trained volunteers to meet the non-medical needs of persons with AIDS. 


CAN WE TALK?=- This month brings the return of Salon Night Discussion Group; To 
kick it off the first night is an OPEN FORUM. This means we can talk about anything we 
want to talk about. The people that are at the first night will select the subject to 
be discussed at the second meeting and so on. It has always proven to be a relaxed way to 
share ideas and to vent gripes.

Dear Briana 


by BRIANA 
Who loves ya baby? 

A letter signed "Truly Confused" poses a 
problem not easily addressed, but here goes... 


Dear Briana: 


As a frequent bar patron, I have 
noticed the increasing number of people 
turning to drugs as a solution. This is 
alarming, and I’m in a dilemma about the 
issue, some of the people being my friends, 
and I hate to see what they are doing to 
themselves. My question is, how do I 
approach them on the subject wsthout 
offending them and posssbly losing their 
friendship? 

Signed, 
Truly Confused 


Dear T.C. 


I, too, can relate to this problem of increasing 
drug abuse, particularly cocaine. Drug abuse is on 
the rise everywhere, not limited to the bar scene. 
Pharmacists, doctors, lawyers, businessmen, 
housewives, and the list goes on, have been sniffing 
the costly white powder at an alarming rate and 
cost. How does one justify sticking all that money 
up his nose for a couple of minutes to create a 
fantasy world? 


Letters to 


’'m not being judgmental because I too have 
tried the expensive powder. Some stark 
realizations, brought to me by a good friend, are 
worth sharing. She pointed out the side effects 
and asked me if | really wanted to waste my 
money, ruin my health, and, most important, lose 
my friends. My answer was absolutely no! 

I don’t know the level of your friendship with 
these people. Can you be frank and honest and 
express your feelings about their problem? Will 
they feel you are prying and that it is none of 
your business? If you can’t be honest with your 
friends, I suggest you reevaluate your friendships. 

Ive found that no amount of lecturing can 
produce results. Only if the person wants to quit, 
will he/she do so. An addiction is an addiction, 
whether it be cigarettes, alcohol or drugs. The big 
difference is drugs are illegal and punishable by 
law. | | 

If you can be honest with your friends about 
this issue, | suggest you refer them to the many 
competent local drug abuse agencies or contact 
the toll-free cocaine hotline at 1-800— COCAINE for 
referral and counseling. Good luck! 

On a lighter note, Valentine’s Day is coming, and 
if Godiva chocolates aren’t in your price range, [fm 
sure a single long— stemmed rose will do quite 
nicely. Remember, we are everywhere!

Lunch, Brunch & Dinner To... 





Christmas??? 


by DANE MORGAN EDWARDS 

This is a Christmas column. We realize that its 
February. The wreaths and lights are packed awa; 
until next year. The tree, despite the best efforts, 
dried up and drooped down and finally was hauled 
ingloriously away, with perhaps bits of garland 
still flashing a festive defiance among brown bare 
branches. The beautiful cards that were a colorful 
headdress about the doorway have long since been 
thrown away — except for that very special one 
from that very special ONE, but even it has been 
relegated to a permanent and secret place. We 
turn up out collars and look wistfully at the sky, 
hoping snow is spent and spring is stirring just 
around the corner... 

But we wanted a Christmas column. But, we 
wondered, what kind of column could it be? The 
Christmas season is the party season and parties 
always mean great food. There would be a great 
many parties. We would have neither the time nor 
the inclination to seek out a restaurant whose 
goodies could then be turned into the stuff 
reviews are made of. fForego our Christmas 
column? Maybe so. 

On Christmas Day we went to a party. It had 
been described to us as a "traditional English 
Christmas house party.” We try anything once. 

Our host greeted us at the door and led us into 
the Wassail bowl. This is the custom described in 
the old carol, the spiced ale with which each new 
guest toasts his host with the _ season’s 
compliments. We raised our glass and saluted him. 
But this was not spiced ale! This, we were told, was 
Regency Punch. That potent concoction is made of 
champagne, brandy, rum, ginger ale, cranberry 
juice, lemons, sugar and God knows what else! It 
surely subdues the vigors of those cold English 
winters considerably. 


When we made our way into the dining room, 
we saw. for the first time in our young life, what a 
cooked goose really looks like. The sheer size of the 
brown and naked brute amazed us. We carefully 
observed the carving and serving and concluded 
that such a vast expanse of flesh could not 
possibly be devoured in only one Christmas season. 
We wondered how many ways can one serve up left 
over goose. 

Later the Christmas caroling came to an abrupt 


halt when no one in the entire hose could 


remember what our true gave us on the tenth day 
of Christmas. Various suggestions were forwarded, 
but all were rejected. A potentially disastrous 
situation was retrieved when one of the guests 
called his mother long distance in Miami. That 
gracious and cooperative woman, a former teacher 
of music, informed us that on that particular day, 
we received ten lords a—leaping. The party went 
roaring on. 

We used a pause in the singing to compliment 
one of the revelers on his gorgeous tan. He told us 
it was of Mexican origin. We playfully suggested 
that we be allowed a glance at his tan lines, and he 
just as playfully informed us that there weren't 
any. He tanned exclusively on the nude beach. We 
led him to the Wassail bowl for another dip and 
were entirely serious when we asked him to let us 
know if he planned to vacation on the particular 
beach again next year. 

It was, regrettably, getting late, and there were 
other parties to attend, so we took our leave. We 
remember thinking as we drove away from the 
house, what are we going to write about in that 
Christmas column? wy

LAMBDA Center 


Lambda Center Kicks Off a New Year 


by HUNTLEY HAVERSTOCK 

It is said that the ancient Romans called the first 
month of the year January after their 
two-headed god Janus, who looked both back to 
the old and ahead to the new. Like Janus, your 
Lambda Center board of directors started its first 
meeting of 1987 with a look back at a year of solid 
achievement and looked optimistically ahead to 
the future. 

In 1986 the Lambda Center and its associated 
committees — the AIDS Services Center, the 
Hotline and the various programs — were able to 
keep going against the sometimes cold winds of 
financial adversity. But after a rough year, the 
Finance Committee was able to report an overall 
bank account balance of $8,386.18. This is after the 
repayment of all outstanding loans and other 
fiscal obligations were taken care of. At least in 
part, the center has been fortunate in the 
generosity of several religious groups which have 
helped out in the form of much needed grants. 

This temporary wealth does not mean the 
Center can afford to rest on its behind, however. 
Events have a away of catching up with bank 
accounts, as we all know. The major expense 
coming up in the new year will be the hiring of a 
full-time director. 

At this point the director search is continuing. 
In response to our ad, letters have been sent to the 
qualified applicants. These letters outline what 
the board expects the duties of a director to be. It 
is hoped that a director will have been chosen by 
the end of February. 

Another uncertainty has arrived with the new 
year: the building in which the Center is located 
has again been sold. At this point, no one knows 
for sure what changes, if any, are in store for the 
Center, but several board members agreed to meet 
with the new owners to learn what plans they 
may have in mind for the building. 

The AIDS Services Center reported that is is now 
serving 35 people through its buddy system. Sadly, 
they also reported that since December 15, six 


persons with AIDS have died. In one case, the 
Services Center paid for the funeral of a man who 
died. 

Much of the meeting was taken up with plans 
for the annual membership meeting, scheduled 
for January 23. Since it will all be history by the 
time you read thus, going into detail would be 
repetitious. 

Perhaps one of the more unusual items 
discussed was the plight of gay Soviet dissident 
Gennady Trifonov, a poet and writer who has spent 
many years in Soviet jails) As an openly gay man 
in a society that has even less tolerance than 
America in the 1980s, he has suffered much at the 
hands of the Soviet secret police. 

Currently out of prison, Trifonov has been told 
that he may leave the Soviet Union — but only if 
he leaves his ill and aged mother behind. 

It has been suggested by a member of the 
Center, Alex Marshall, that as a. gesture of 
solidarity with Trifonov, the board grant him an 
honorary membership in the Lambda Center. 
Marshall has also suggested that board members 
send letters to the Soviet embassy urging the 
release of Trifonov along with that of his mother. 
The board decided to pass the issue on for a 
decision by the full membership at the January 23 
meeting. 

Social events for 1987 are already being planned. 
The Women’s Group plans to reorganize its salon 
nights, featuring feminist books and authors. The 
board is also considering the establishment of an 
informal coffee house at the center. 

In one last moment of looking back, the board 


_ Said goodbye to Kate Kraft, its vice president. Kate 


has done a masterful job during the past three 
years, giving her energies, time, and talents that 
went far beyond the call of duty. Now her return 
to college and move to Philadelphia will take her 
out of the area but not out of our thoughts. Best 
of luck in the future, Kate. wy

Lifestyles. . . 


by GREG NEW HOLLAND 

Where to go? What to do? Where does a 
gay/lesbian, a gay/lesbian couple or a group of 
gay/lesbians go for a good vacation in a 
comfortable atmosphere, where there is culture, 
museums, ‘artsy’ shops, restaurants with 
character, sociable people and an outstanding 
nightlife? Where to go? Key West is where! 

After a small poll in the local bars, it seemed 
Key West is the favorite predominantly gay 
vacation spot. The climate offers year-round 
warmth and sunshine with beautiful flowers and 
palm trees in abundance, and cottages with white 
picket fences. 

A day, In Key West, starts with a rented bike or 
scooter ride to a seaside restaurant for croissant 
and expresso. After breakfast, continue your ride 
to ever-famous Duval Street, with specialty shops 
offering everything imaginable. Stop in between 
purchases for a hot dog on a stick, barbecued ribs, 
or strawberries dipped in chocolate. 

_ When lunch time rolls around, treat yourself to 
an avocado— mushroom-—tomato-sprout sandwich 
with a tall papaya drink to enjoy while lazily 
sitting in a wooden swing on a front porch. 
Venture to the island’s museum, where paintings 
and jewelry conjure up a dream. 

Returning to your rented condo, lounging by 
_ the pool with a banana daiquiri, soaking up the 
sun’s rays..what better way to spend an afternoon?

Don’t miss the nightly Sunset Carnival. It’s a 
wonder the island doesn’t sink, with hundred of 
people flocking to the dock to watch the sunset. 
They gather to enjoy comedy, magic, musicians, 
along with hundreds of peddlers selling their 
wares. There is even a human statue to entertain. 
If you want an unobstructed glimpse of the 
sunset, you better get a spot early or have 
shoulders to sit on, for it’s absolutely spectacular, 
and everyone knows it. 

It’s dinner time! Where should | start? There 
are an abundance of quaint restaurants which 
boast the ultimate dining experience. Nobody does 
it better! It’s a romantic’s dream come true. 

Finally, Key West nightlife! It’s awesome. The 
bars range from quiet piano bars submerged in 
plant life to hard core discos that you can lose 
yourself in. One bar includes a game room, a 
movie room, of the porn variety, private VIP 
lounge, disco, and the ever-popular outdoor cafe, 
all under one roof! On special occasions, Duval 
Street is completely closed, and the street fills 
with people partying to end all parties. 

Yes, Key West has it all and more. It’s 
predominantly gay, which complements all 
aspects of a vacation that you could possibly 
desire. Where to go? What to do? Experience Key 
West. I guarantee you'll love it!

I'm _ Not One to Gossip, But... 


by MYRNA LOUISE 

Well, here we are again! Did everyone have a 
wonderful holiday season? I don’t know about 
yours, but mine was truly exhausting. I’m sure 
many of you went through the same thing I did. 

Let’s be honest. I don’t care what day it is, after 
ten hours of family, you’ve had it! To this day, I 
still don’t know half the names of my cousins. 
Yeah, well, somehow I think they'll survive. I just 
hope I do. 

Pve got lots of goodies in store for,you this issue, 
so what do you say we start? 

I'm not one to gossip, but... 

Rumor has it that a certain bar owner (no 
names pleas, but she drives a ''Z') made an extreme 
social error at a fundraising dinner, while her 
sister laughed hysterically! Ladies, please! Dina, 
love, next time wear the jock strap like everyone 
told you! Steph, shame on you! Wait until I tell 
Dawn! Oh, the shame, Dina! Is it true that the 
"700" club is Dina and Kitty? 

Let’s have a hand for Claudia. Myrna herself 
was at a "certain club” in town and had the 
opportunity to dance with Ms. Claudia. Yes, folks, I 
was impressed. Not only can the girl dance, but 
the @s$ was the only one to beat me at the limbo, 
and I was a customer! God love her! 

I'm not one to gossip, but. 

This dirt I lovet This is a story about our own 
beloved Michael. That’s right, Candida’s dedicated 
pianist. Dear Michael picked up a lonely soul who 
need a soft hand and a hard @z&@t Excuse me, I 
lost my train of thought! Anyway, to make a long 
story short, our pianist was missing more than his 
88 keys before the night was over! Michael, dear, 
tut, tut, after the VCRs, one would think you'd 
learn your lesson. Oh, well, it took Chuck a long 
time too! Oh! How rude! 

And speaking of rude, I'm not one to gossip, but... 

Circulating around the "social circuit" is that if 
two certain bartenders from the “local disco” 
would behave for two months, we could all expect 
a postcard from down under (no, I don’t mean 
Riverbend!). Good luck, kidst What do they have to 
lose? What do they have left? [I’m sure [ll hear 
about that one! 

If any of you were at the BMW Club last Friday, 
you caught Gail’s act. Myrna was with her, kind of, 


ij 


what an experience. I love you dearly, hon, but if 
your "frontals’ would have bounced anymore, well, 
kiss the light show good—bye! 

How about that Pat in her new black t-shirt? I 
just love when she goes formal, don’t you? 

I've seen Georgette wearing black lately too. 
What’s the matter,dear, have you gone through all 
the muggers in town already? You work faster 
than I do, love! 

Did anyone else see Rosemary driving around 
lately? It looked like she had a new leather 
interior. I thought she just had a face lift! 

I don’t know if anyone else noticed, but in a 
certain slide show at an Allentown bar, didn’t our 
own beloved Nan look like Martina Navratilova? 
Nan, I never knew you were so talented with balls. 
You'll never cease to amaze me! 

Alyse, dear, driving with you is like driving with 
Myrna! If any of you out there has the 
opportunity to travel with her.go! She's the 
closest thing to a N.Y. cabbie around. Make sure 
you relive yourself first..I didn’t think Myrna has 
to explain! 

Now, kids, Myrna is going to share with you 
some dirt about herself. You see I started dating 
this guy, and can you believe this nebish had the 
gall to say that either Myrna went or he was 
going? Can you stand it? Give Myrna an 
ultimatum? Driving a Gremlin and trying to give 
an attitude! Really! In Gary’s words, ''don’t waste 
my timef' They spend one night with you, and 
then they want to change you! Oh, God! 

Well, Myrna has gone on long enough for one 
issue. Once again [d like to thank those that I 
have written about. I only write about those that I 
love and respect and those that can take it in good 
fun, the way it is meant. If any of you darlings 
have any dirt for Myrna, mail it to: Myrna, c/0

In closing, if you need that quick tax write-off 
for 1986, don’t forget the Lehigh Valley AIDS 


- Services Center throughout the year. The Services 


Center is a vital part of out local community. 
After all, AIDS affects us all. It knows no bounds, 
whether it be race, creed, religion, sex, or sexual

Victory Party a Rousing Success 


by BOB SWEENEY 

The Stonewall hosted a Victory Party /AIDS Benefit, 
Wednesday, November 19th at their bar, raising 
$2,700 for AIDS— related activities. 

The Victory Party was held to celebrate the 
Stonewall’s victory over Candida at the First 
Annual Bar Olympics held in August at Rainbow 
Mountain Resort, which raised $5,5000 for the AIDS 
Services Center, a project of the Lambda Center. 

At the fundraiser, money was raised a variety 
of ways: $1 door charge, raffle tickets, balloon and 


carnation sales. Contributions included a gracious 
matching donation from the host bar and, from 
one of the Stonewall’s bartenders, Mitch Hemphill, 
all his tips for the evening. 

A hearty congratulations to everyone involved. 

Work is well under way for a spring fundraiser 
involving Candida’s, the Stonewall, the 13th Street 
Pub, and Silhouette lounge. Stay tuned for more 
information on bar fundraisers!
