Welcomi;! to (3ur fourth edition of LAMBDA I I luant to thank everybody
luho contributed to this month's edition, especially Larry Broiun and
Ian Euuing, luithout ujhose untiring editing efforts and nimble typing
fingers, these four editions 'jjould never have appeared.
I Luas glad to see so many neuj faces at the Christmas Dance, plus the
return of many of our dedicated faithfuls luho have been inactive for
awhile. I heard several people remarking as they left that this was
one of the best dances we had ever had. Spirits seemed high and I got
a really good feeling inside knowing everbody was having a good time!
The TEA DANCES are still going strong. And we still need your help
and support! The next TEA DANCE happens Sunday, December 19th -
6 PM to Midnight at the Capital Corral, 313 W. Hargett Street, Raleigh.
There's a $2 donation at the door, and then you can dance, dance, dance
to the hottest disco music heard anywhere in the South. If you can
help at the door for the next TEA DANCE, please call Howard at 942-2039.
One piece of bad news . . . After the last TEA DANCE, the Capital
Corral was vandalized and the TEA DANCE receipts, bar receipts, 1000
records and several turn tables and sound system were stolen. And
unfortunately, insurance on such an establishment is practically
impossible to get. There's a $250 reward out for anyone providing
information leading to the arrest and conviction of those involved in
the break-in. The Corral has replaced all the equipment, and is working
har to replace their fine record collection as well.

newsletter in an envelope labeled "Carolina Gay Association." It was
NEWER my intention to have the newsletter mailed in those envelopes,
because I firmly believe in YOUR right to be as discrete as you
choose. I apologize for the communication breakdown and hope that the
mailing did not cause any of you any trouble. And I promise it won't
I hope to see all of you at our last meeting of the year, on MONDAY,
DECEMBER 13th, at 7:30 PM in the STUDENT UNION. The topic is "Gays
and Traditional/Non-Traditional Holidays." We'll be having an open
discussion of our own experiences on these holidays. I hope you'll
be able to come and share your thoughts with us. The discussion will
be preceded by a brief (half-hour) business meeting to bring everybody
up to date on committee happenings.
Our three workshops at the North Carolina School Counselor's Association
went excelentlyl In fact, the president of the group told us our
presentations were the HIGH POINT of the conference for many of the'
delegates. Panelists included Dan Leonard, Mike Young, Howard Fradkin,
Judy Carrier, Judy Carroll, Susan Johnston, Mindy Wood, and Maureen
Malone. We even got coverage in the "Greensboro Daily News!" This
outreach was the first such effort organized under the auspices of the
North Carolina Gay Union. NCGU's hope is that we will be able to reach
other professionals in the state through similar presentations at their
