Gay community active

By JOHN ADAM
Among the various groups
throughout the University and city, the
local gay community is one of the most
ambitious. Struggling to increase their
numbers and improve relations with
the general population, gays in Ann Ar-
bor are currently determined to assert
themselves.
According to spokespersons for
various local organizations, Ann Arbor
is a relatively comfortable city for such
an effort.
"IT'S SURE BETTER than most
places I know, said Jim Toy, direc
tor of the Gay Advocate Office in the
Michigan Union.
Toy estimates that about five to ten
percent of the city's population is gay,
but he says it's hard to guess. "I don't
know how people define themselves,"
he said.
Many homosexuals still have
problems of anxiety, low self-esteem,
and confusions of sexual identity, Toy
said, adding that students often call and
say, "I, don't know if I should tell my
parents."
THE GAY Advocate Office operates a
"gayhotline" and provides four major
services-peer counseling referal,
education, advocacy for the rights of
gays, and outreach and community ac-
tion. The office works closely with the
Lesbian and Gay Male Community ser-
vices, a group which sponsored a "Gay
Pride Week" last summer in which
about 1300 people participated in ac-
tivities such as a march, dances, con-
certs, and movies.

Various groups
planning for
increase in
participation

meetings. But he said the group is in its
infancy and still needs to register with
the Michigan Student Assembly as an
official group.

Annette Wilson, LGCS's chairperson,
said the liberal atmosphere of Ann Ar-
bor provides a rather good environment
for gays and added that the city is one
of the few places in the nation that has a
human rights law for gays. But, she
said, the situation can still be im-
proved.
Wilson says she wants to start a "Gay
Youth Group" to go along with the
many other gay groups in town -
health professionals, business
professionals, law students, a
volleyball group, to name arfew.
CURRENTLY, THERE are only two
night clubs in town where gay people
can feel comfortableraccording to
Wilson. She said they are the Rubiyat
and The Flame. But occasionally gays
congregate at the Star Bar on Reggae
night, she said.
Two students are now trying to
organize a general group for gay

University students. Jeff Schunk, one of
the organizers, said he wants the group
to serve as an alternative for gay studen-
ts to the bars.
"It's hard to come out when your gay,
to learn to accept yourself," said
Schunk. He added that he thinks many
students at the University are afraid of
admitting they're gay.
Schunk said he wants the general
student group to reach out to the
students and to possible have bi-weekly
