To add polish to the perfor-

said Ms. Malinowitz writes from
Sara's voice, and each time she
performs the words written by
another become more her own.

Most of Ms. Cytron's ap-
pearances have been before gay
and lesbian audiences. Howev-
er, she has been well received
by Jewish crowds in Manhat-
tan.
"It all depends on your level
of comfort," Ms. Cytron said.
"Some people see me as a Jew-
ish lesbian only. That is what I
am, but it's not all that I am. rm
also a thoughtful and progres-
sive thinker, a comedian."
Humor, Ms. Cytron said, al-
ways has been a part of her life.
It's the rhythm of her speech,
her timing, her early memories

gay and lesbian liberation move-
ment. She believes AIDS and
gays and lesbians in the mili-
tary have brought issues she
discusses to the forefront.
"There is a continued inter-
est in the media. We (gays and
lesbians) have gained visibility.
The question is how to use these
opportunities to generate dis-
cussion rather than just act as
a freak show or exotica," Ms.
Cytron said. "But there is
progress. My goal for 1994 is to
be on television as a comic, not
talking on a panel about why
rm not on TV." ❑
