(NC CONFERENCE, from p. 1)
political issues, and reporter for The
Advocate, The Washington Blade, and the
New York Native, will also attend the
weekend gathering.
One workshop will be a panel discussion
of why lesbians and gay men often do not
work together and ways to facilitate more
cooperative efforts.
Lesbian and gay vendors will have
displays during registration and early
Saturday afternoon.
The Conference is being hosted by the NC
State Gay & Lesbian Community, one of
two groups on the campus. Concern has
been expressed as to whether recent con
troversy surrounding the split of the now
defunct State Gay Community will hamper
Conference arrangements. The State Gay &
Lesbian Community has received its charter
from the University and has made arrange
ments for facilities for the Conference at
no cost. They are also helping with
arrangements for food, housing, and campus
Concern has also been expressed about
security measures. Some gay people have
been harassed on the NCSU campus, and a
lesbian/gay book display was trashed at a
campus gay awareness week. Conference
planners have arranged for campus security
officers to be present when vendors are
open for business and at the main public
events. In addition, the campus security
office is near the Conference site.
Preregistration fee for the Conference
is $20 ($10 for students with current ID).
The fee covers the lectures, workshops, a
luncheon, and Tyler's concert. Registra
tion at the door will be $25 ($15 for
students). Tickets will also be sold
separately for Tyler's concert.
Discounts are available to groups send
ing in advance registration. Groups
sending 5 or more members can discount $2
from each member's fee, and groups of 10
or more may discount $5 per registration.

Southeast Conference
Meets in Birmingham
The ninth annual Southeastern Conference
of Lesbians and Gay Men will be held April
12-15, in Birmingham, Alabama, at the
Holiday Inn-Medical Center. Billed as
"Celebration '84: Pulling Together and
Reaching Out," the conference is expected
to attract between 400 and 600 attenders
from throughout the Southeast.
Speakers for the four-day gathering
include Abby Rubenfeld, managing attorney
for the Lambda Legal Defense and Education
Fund, and Virginia Appuzzo, director of
the National Gay Task Force.
In addition, Mike Rutherford, executive
director of the Gay Press Association,
will present an exhibit and workshop on
the ways media affect gay people.
Other special events for the weekend
include a Friday night dance with the
women's rock band from Birmingham, "Mara
thon," a concert on Saturday night by Meg
Christian, a banquet featuring Tom
Chorlton of the National Association of
Gay and Lesbian Democratic Clubs, and a
softball event and dinner sponsored by the
Magic City Athletic Association.
Organizers say they chose the theme of
"pulling together and reaching out"
because they see the need for gay men and
lesbians in the Southeast to work more
closely with each other and to build
alliances and coalitions with supportive
people in the greater community.
They have scheduled workshops on a vast
range of topics and say they have received
enthusiastic support from national lesbian
and gay figures as well as Birmingham
activists. Workshop facilitators will
