GAYS AND GAY SUPPORTERS sit in during a City Council meeting last June as Council members discuss a resolution recognizing the week of June 22 as Les-
bian and Gay Pride Week. Council passed the proposal in a 6-3 vote. The resolution was introduced by Councilwoman Kathy Kozachenko, a Self-proclaimed les-
bian. After reading the resolution, Kozachenko appealed to the Council to review their "sexist" attitudes and speech.

Council endorses Lesbian
Pride Week for t

Gay

he first time

By ANN MARIE LIPINSKI
During a lively session at-
tended by a sizable contingent
of the local gay community, City
Council in late June passed 6-3 a
resolution recognizing the week
of June 22 as Lesbian and Gay
Pride Week.
Therresolution, introduced by
self-proclaimed lesbian Coun-
cilwoman Kathy Kozachenko
(HRP-Second Ward), won the
approval of Council after simi-
lar resolutions had been defeat-

ed by
Councils
years.

Republican-dominated
for two successive

AFTER reading the resolu-
tion, which was met by a spir-
ited round of applause from
members of the audience, Koza-
chenko appealed to the Council
members to not just perfunctor-
ily recognize the week had al-
ready been declared by the gay
community, but to review their
"sexist" attitudes and speech.
"Oh, it doesn't make my
mother happy, and it doesn't
make my father cheer; and no
matter what the doctor tells
them, I enjoy being a queer,"
read a verse of the song which
was belted to the tune of Rodg-

ers and Hammerstein's I En-
joy Being a Girl.
HAD Council defeated the res-
olution, the planned activities
for Lesbian and Gay Pride Week
would have been carried out re-
gardless, said Kozachenko.
"Don't just vote for this reso-
lution so the press will say we
have a more liberal Council,"
said Kozachenko. "You should
really attempt to "act in a more
sincere way than by just pass-
ing an easy resolution."
The three votes against the
resolution came from Republi-
cans Robert Henry (Third
Ward), Roger Bertoia (Third
Ward), and Ronald Trowbridge
(Fourth Ward). (Fifth Ward

Republicans Gerald Bell and

ADMONISHING "society" for
its antiquated attitudes, Koza-
chenko told Council, "What I
think we're struggling for is a
society and culture in which
male superiority is abolished, in
which the last remnants of male
supremacy are overthrown."
About 40 gays and gay sup-
porters - many of them clad in
T-shirts reading "200 years of
gay oppression, 1776, 1976," and
brandishing placards asking
"End all war, stop gay oppres-
sion' - stood and burst into a
rousing chorus of a gay suppor-
tive song which Kozachenko had
hurriedly mimeographed and
passed out to the audience.
"The resolution reads that this
week be recognized as Gay
Pride Week; not declared so,"
she pointed out. "We're fighting
against society and oppression
and we do not look to this City
Council or any government to
declare Gay Pride Week. We
have declared it, and we are
only asking you to recognize it."
A measure similar to this was
taken by Detroit Mayor Cole-
man Young in mid-June, who

ALTHOUGH this type of ac-
tion had been defeated by Ann
Arbor Councilrthe past two
years, Democrat and HRP
Council members joined togeth-
er in 1972 to approve a similar
Gay Pride Week, and tempor-
arily make Ann Arbor the na-
tion's only city with an officially
declared week of recognition for
homosexuals.
Gay Pride Week activities in
Ann Arbor included a women's
picnic in the Arboretum, as well
as a women's dance and a po-
etry reading.
The remainder of the week's
events were held in Detroit, and
they included a mass march
from Cass Park to a rally, at
which several speakers,. includ-
ing Jim Toy, University gay ad-
vocate, spoke.
A gay arts and crafts fair was
also held in Detroit at the Trin-
ity Methodist Church, where art
and political display booths were
exhibited.
Most of the other major cities
also observed a Gay Pride
Week, including Los Angeles,
San Francisco, Boston, Chicago
and New York City where the
largest event - a rally attended
by over 10,000 people-was held.
