Deadly Silence
We've all heard it before, but have you e-ver really stopped to think
how true it is? In so many cases, silence can be literally lethal. Think
about unreported abuse, an o-,erlooked cry for help, an ignored
genocide.
In the Darfur region of Sudan, a human tragedy is taking place
and there has been precious little said or done about it. So far, that
silence has taken 400,000 lives. How did it get to this point?
In 2003, warfare broke out in the African nation when two loosely
allied rebel groups attacked militarv installations. \X'hile these atta~ks
were quickly followed by peace ag~eements, brokered by the Cnited
States, the government funded militia groups called the "Janjaweed"
to eliminate those considered disloyal to the S!.!danese government.
Over the next three years, the rest of the world has largely ignored
the atrocities committeci by the government-sanctioned Janjaweec:.
Thus far, according to reports by the World Food Program, the
United Nations, and the Coalition for International Justice, 3.5 million
people are now hungry, 2.5 million have been displaced due to
violence, and 400,000 people have died in Darfur. Rape has become
one of the most common ,vavs to artack the women ar,d children
of Darfur, once they have be;n driven from their homes. Now, the
threat of famine is dosing in or, the already desperate people of
Darfur.
Meanwhile, the government of Sudan does nothing ~o stop the
genocide. Many Janjaweed have been integrated into the army and
police. No one has been charged with any crime, and their actions
are not being challenged. There remains a state of total impunity.
In 2005, the United Nations finaEy took action ag~.inst Sudan, referring
the situation to the International Criminal Court. Howe-;er,
nothing more has happened since chat m!!e, and tb:: US nas ~raved
scraogeiy siient for a country tha;: daims to stand against :yrarn{y
and injustice. Our media has said very litt:e about th.c conflict, :md it
hasn't bee:1 a high priority for our go;,ernmem, although Ccmgre,s
is considering humanitarian and peacekeeoing funcling. The silence
has indeed been deadly. ,. ' · "
That silence wiU be ending on Sundav, 1\pril 30~ ho~:.le\~er. /\ R.alh:
to Stop Genoc:de is planr{eJ for 2 4:30 pm on rhe National J\.J:;il
between 3rd and 4th Streets in front of the I.JS (~apttoL S01nc of

Nancy Pelosi, (;eorge (]ooncy, Russell Si1nn1ons~ l(\\a~si ~lfume,

critical ~iri1arion in I)arfut- ()rganiz•.::rs are expecting hundreds of
thousands to ;1ttend, after ()prah \"'Cinfrey rhe
raUy on her talk sho\1--.
This bre~king o~ the silence is only the !1rst step, however. We must
continue to pmh President Bush and ::he internati(mai community
to take the steps necessary to end the genocide and builci a lasting
peace.
What does ali this ha,·e to do ,,·ith gay issues? Personally, I believe
the LGBT community should be acti,·e in this battle. After
all, who knows more abour the poisonous effects of silence tl1an
us? \Y/e\·e been forced into silence for centuries, and the results
have often been fatal. \\?e'l'. never know how m~ny gay and iesbian
people chose to end ti1eir lives rather tnan continue living in the
dark silence of tl:e closet. How many more haYe been killed directly
because of their refusal to stay quiet? ·
I1:_ fact, we kno\J: so much about tl1e subject, ~en years ago a group
ot college students started :he National Day of Silence to protest
rhe silence most gav students and teachers are forced into, and the
ignored history and contributions of LGBT people. The students
refused to speak for an entire ciay. The evem quickly grew from
year to year. On Wednesday, April 26, 2006, ten vears after the Dav
of Silence began, an estimated 500.000 students.at 4000 colleges ·
and high schools participated. Ir has become the largest student-led
protest in historv.
How does it work) Participants usually wear red shirrs, often stickers
identifying ,hem as participants, :me! always hand our papers
called speaking cards, which explain why they are not speaking. The
card~ read: "Please understand my reasons for not speaking today. I
am participating in the Dav of Silence, a national vouth movement
protesting the silence faced by lesbian, gay, bisexu~l and transgender
peopie and their allies. My deliberate silence echoes that silence,
which is caused by harassment, prejudice, and discrimination. I
believe that ending the silence is the first step to\vard fighring these
injustices. Think about the voices you are not hearing todav. What
are you going to do to end the silence?" ·· ·
Whiic things have certainly improved for LGBT teens, even in the
ten years since the Nationai Da\· of Silence srarted, we still cannot
afford to be silent. The co~servaci\·e antigay forces are hard at
work to drive us back into ~ne closer. In fact, last year, they began
a program called the Day of Truth. lJnjike the National Dav of Silence,
the Christian organizers of the Day of Truth encour~ge their
par:icipants to speak out -- against the gay and lesbian students and
their aiiies. Their goal is to "coumer the promotion of the homosexuai
agenda anci express an opposing viewpoint from a Christian
perspecfr;c."
Strate611cally, the Day of Truth i$ heid the daY after the Dav of
Silence and, as of this year. has become an a,nnual e\"ent. Their
participants arc also encouraged to \Vear t-shirts and pass out cards.

Heart to Heart
The good news is, as the Day of Silence
continues to grow, I firmly believe our
opposition ,vill fail. Sometimes it takes a
·while for justice and equality to take hold,
bm: in the end, it alrr,ost always does. It can
only happen when enough people refuse
to remain silem. One voice crying in the
\vilderness is easily overlooked. Many yoices
raised together are much harder to ignore.
Speak up. Speak out. Silence is deadly.

Reaches 91%
The Oklahoma State Departmeni of Health
(OSDH), HIV/STD Service, continues to identify
an Increased number of syphilis cases in Tulsa
County among men who have sex with men
(MSM).
From January 1 to March 10, 2006, 11 early
syphilis cases were identified in Tulsa County.
Of those cases, 10 (91 %) occurred in MSM.
In addition, Tulsa Couniy likely will see an increase
In the annual number of Syphilis cases
for the second vear in a row. In 2005, Tulsa
County reported 14 cases of which 8 (57%)
were In MSM and in 2004, 13 cases of which 7
(54%) were In MSM. 65% of cases diagnosed
with syphilis were co-infected with HIV.
This increased activity in the MSM population
of Tulsa County continues to be a significant
concern for public health officials and suggests
a continued demographic shift in the
populations most at risk for developing syphilis
in Oklahoma. Early detection and treatment
prevents further damage syphilis may cause to
the body and may also reduce the risk for HIV
transmission. Consequently, persons at high
risk need to be aware and seek testing. Risk
factors Include having multiple sexual partners,
using intravenous drugs, having sex without
barrier protection, and being infected with HIV.
Health care providers should consider expandIng
their screening and prevention efforts particularly
among the MSM population. Prompt
reporting by providers to the Oklahoma State
Department of Health is essential in preventing
further spread of syphilis. Since January 1,
2006, six of the eleven (55%) new early syphilis
cases have been identified through OSDH's
contact investigation.
Early syphilis cases can be treated with single
doses of Benz:athine penicillin, which is avaiiable
at the Tulsa Health Deoartmeni. Health
care providers may contact.the OSDH HIV/STD
Service at (405) 271-4636.

"Do The Paoerwork"
The man who sat across from me was good-looking and in
his mid-30s a corporate type who was crying as he ate his
bagel. Almost six momhs after losing his 41-year-old partner,
Rich Janulis, to a bad heart, Jim Salengo's pain is paipable. I
couldn't keep from welling up myseif.
They had been together for 13 years. They owned a house
together. Rich, who worked at the New York State AIDS
Institute, listed Jim as his domestic partner so that the latter
could o-et health insurance from the state while between jobs. . b
Thev, had built a life that was full of friends, family, , and fabulous
times together.
Thev had even taken the steps necessary to protect each other
in the event one of them would die. Thev took the steps but
never completed the journey. The day Ri~h died, none of the
paperw-ork the v.rills, the power~ of attorney, the medical
proxies had been signed. In the eyes of the law,Jim didn't
exist as Rich's partner.
Through Jim's tears came the anger he has felt for the past
six months. He's not angry with Ri.ch for dying; he's angry
because, despite 13 years together, their relationship wasn't
valued by anyone or anything "official."
Because Rich died at home, the police had to be called. "They
asked me if I was his roommate," Jim told me. "I told them,
'No, we're partners.' \Vhen I read the police report, it said
roommate." Jim's tear_;,; fl.owed.
Then it was dme to determine who was Rich's next of kin
- because the legal paperwork bad never been completed,
the designation went to Rich's mocher, who told Jim not
to ,vorn;, she would make sure he got what he deserved. If

worked the svstem, and those funds went to the ~state and
not to the m;ther. Since Jackie was appointed by the court
as the estate's co-executor, there's some hope Jim will get
what he reallv deserves - the same benefits and respect rhat ;,,
heter-osexuai'survivor would have gotten in a similar scenario. ~
Much more complex and internecine than there's space for
in rhis column, the story comes back to Jim, who continues
to wipe his eyes in between bites. He tells me of their best
friends from Massachusetts two gay men who \Vere planning

He looked at me and asked why. \X'hy has it been so difficuit
for him to be seen as Rich's legal partner? \X'hy have he and
Jackie had to jump through hoops? \X'hy aren't our relationships
valued?
We all know the answers to those questions, and so did he.
He wanted to know what he could -do with his anger. I rold
him he could be a poster child for the same-~ex marriage
fight. "Maybe it's time to get involved," i1e said.
Jim's story is the story of so many in the lesbian and gay
community. Together for years, we never take the rime to put
our affairs in order. We think "nothing is going to happen,"
and we figure we can cake care or it next month, after we get
back from vacation, after Christmas, when we find a supportive
attorney, when we have the time.

2006
Summary : Pasr Out is a retrospective of key moments,
personalities, and subjects in LGBT history. Each
installment brings the past to life by exploring the diversity
of the gay past and its impact on the queer present.
Who was Aileen Wuornos?
Despite her grisly crimes, Aileen Wuornos branded bv the media
as a lesbian serial killer garnered sympathy from som~ due to her
tragic life and her futile quest for love.
I 11 1989, \X'uornos found a new ,vay to ob:ain money killing and
robbing middle-aged men who pickd ner up for sex along highway
I-75. She first mardered eiectronics-shop owner Richard Mallorv
in December, shooting him multiple ti~es ,vith a .22-caliber pis~o~.
O;·er several months in 1990, she killed at least nve more men,
including a sausage salesman, a police officer, and a missionary.
On July 4, \vuornos and ~vfoore ran off the road in a stolen car
oelonging co one of the dead men; they flea on foot, but were
identified by witnesses. Police traced the women through motel
receipts, a bloody handprint on the abandoned car, and thumbprints
Wuornos lefr on file when selling victims' belongings at pawnshops.
Two detectives cornered \'vuornos on Jan. 9, 1991, at a Port Orange
biker bar called the Last Resort and arrested her on an outstanding
warrant. The next day, authorities located Moore, who was visiting
her sister in Pennsylvania. She agreed to coopera.:e, persuading
\X'uornos to confess to the murders during taped telephone
conversations. r-Ioore never contacted \X!uornos in prison, and ~he
las;: rime they saw each other was when Ivfoore testified against

\'<7uornos' arrest set off a media circus. Within two weeks, she and
her first attorney had sold movie rights co her storv, while three
leading investigators in the case were also negotiating with Hollywood.
After hearing about Wuornos on the news, a born-again
Christian woman, Arlene Pralle, said Jesus told her to contact Wuornos
in prison. Praile appeared on talk shows pleading on Wuornos'
behalf, and eventually legaily adopted her.
Wuornos was born Feb. 29, 1956, in Rochester, Mich. Her father,
whom she never knew, was a convicted child molester who hung
himself in prison. Her teenage mother abandoned Wuornos and
her older brother, leaving them in the care of their maternal grandparents.

soon after, and Wuornos tors cast doubt on her credibility. She was
dropped out of school, left home, found guilty and sentenced to death, despite

the following November that an investigative
reporter reYealecl that Mallorv had served time

\'i/uornos was arrested repeatedly
for violations such as drunk driving,
assault, and theft, once holding up
a convenience store clad only in a
bikini. When her brother died of
cancer in 1976, Wuornos received
a $10,000 life insurance payment,
which she soon squandered. She
was married briefly to a wealthy

Homo-Phobia In Paradise!
By Douglas Glenn
With e,·eryone traveling these days one
would think chat most everyplace would be
very gay-friendly ..... or at least one would
think that would be the case. Most small
foreign countries have travel as their main
source of revenue. They like to fill up their
hotels, bars,
restaurants
and shops
with American
tourists.

to
Rebecca Schiefer of the United States based
Human Right Watch, ''.Jamaica is the worst
any of us has ever seen".
Not only is Jamaica homophobic but nearby
Islands of St. Maarten and
the Bahamas have had their
fair share of gay bashing.
If this were just an isolated
event we might look upon
it differently but it seems as

were attacked and severely beate2.
by a group of men on the Cario::)ean island
of St. Maarten where they were vac:,tioning
in what is described at as homophobic
attack. WFOR television in I',fiami reports
tbat Richard Jefferson, a senior prod~ccr for
che CBS Nightly News and his friend R::an
Smith a prociucer-researcher for 48 Hours
were attacked as they left a pcpular bar
after an altercation with the men earlier that
night inside the dub. The :mackc:rs allegedly
hurled homophobic insults at the two and
they were beaten ,vith a tire iron. Both n1en
were rns?ed to a iocai ho:piraL ~eff:r_S')D
susta.1.qect severe cuts on the baci( ot hts
head and his lov~1er back. Smith suffered a
18
fractured skull and possible neurological
damage.
Io Jamaica, Jamaican Aids activists, Steve
Harvey, an openly gay man was abductive
from his home and police reported his body
was found
miles away
in a wooded
area with
gun shots ro
his head and
back.
In ~hssau,
Bahamas the
Bahamian
government
banned
Brokeback
Moutain
from
showing
in theaters. The Rainbow Alliance, a gay
rights group, called the ban a "farce," and
said most Bahamians reject the idea that a
"small group of appointed individuals ? can
provide the moral compass for the entire
country.''

Which islands are gay-friendly
Planet OUT TtaYel Columnist Kenneth
Kiesnoski reporrs, while a chain of gayfriendly
island destinations encircles tl1e
globe, there has traditionailv been one missing
link any Caribbean isie.
That is, until now. Despite a welJ-deser·,:ed
reputation for entrenched homophobia,
frequent discrimination against gay citizens,
and even open hostility to gay and lesbian
travelers, there are signs that at least a handful
of Caribbean destinations are changing
their tunes.
Gay-friendly-isn Caribbean:
Whether prompted by economic consider·
ations or internal or external pressures -- or,
in some cases, ail three -- island nations
such as St. Lucia, the Netherlands Antilles
and the Cayman Islands arc, if not openlv
courting gay travelers, at least chalie~ging
reputations for rampant homopi1obia. The
U.S. Territories of Puerto Rico, St. Croix
and the GS Virgin Islands still offer the
closest approximations of gay life in the
Caribbean.
Caribbean travel veteran Alan Chastanet,
o-wner of S,. Lucia's Coco Resorts and vice
president of the island's hotel and tourist
board, said that as far as he and his hospita;ity
colleagues are concerned. homosexualitv
is a "non-issue." But even in hospitable Ca~
ribbcan island destinations. gay-specific or
gay-exciusive resorts and nightiife tend tu be
thin on the grcund, save perhaps in Puerto
Rican metropolis San Juan.

"CAMPING IT UP"
"Camping it up" got a whole new meaning after we discovered
the CAlvIPIT OUTDOOR RESORT in Fennville, Michigan, just 7
miles south of Saugatuck/Douglas, Michigan. It is about a 2 hour
drive from Chicago and is just a couple miles from Lake Michigan.
Campit is the :tvfidwest's largest and nicest gay and l
outdoor resort. Campit was establis
40 years ago and bec;me a gay and
lesbian campground 27 years ago.
The currem owners, Sally Howard
and :Michael O'Connor purchased
rhe campground in 2000. To clarify
things, :tvfichael ;s a wonderful gay
man and his business partner Sally is
a wonderful lesbian. They are excellent
hands-on owners. The owners KNOW
how to treat their guests and that is the
reason their guests keep coming back
year afi:er year after year. The owners
are constantly making new and exciting
changes including remodeling to the Outdoor
Resort. They added a privacy fence
all around and another 3 dozen camping
sires ha-:;e been aclded. A couple of years ago they added a
large swimming pool, bath house and recreation hall.
Campit Campground is completely secluded from the rest of
the world and you could easily stay there for days without ever leaving
che grounds. But if you wish to, the gay villages of Saugatuck
and Douglas, Michigan are just 7 miles north where there are numerous
gay businesses including antiques shops, gift ships, gay bars,
a fitness cemer and gay restaurants.
Campit Campground is composed of RV and tent sites. In addition
to tl1e Bunkhouse Bed and Breakfast you can rent a log cabin
or a traiier. There are total of over 50 "seasonal" RV, trailer and tent
sites. The Band B has 5 rooms, air-conditioning and serves a contintntal
breakfast. Guests choosing to stay in the Bunkhouse B and
B have ful] use of the campground facilities. In addition there is a
iog cabin that is available f~; renting. There are more than 23 acres
of wooded and open areas, a bath house with toilets and showers.
~rails and a piayground. They have an "adult's only" policy except
on "Family Pride \\:'eek". They are special tenting areas for nudists,
women. leather, etc. They have a camp store with snacks, beer, firewood,
ice and propane. The Campit is PERFECfL Y SPOTLESS!
You won't find any trash, bottles or beer cans thrown around the
grnunds. AU of a:he guests ::hink of this as r:heir second home.
Can yeu possibly think rJi a better way to have a great vacation
than ro g'l to :m all gay and lesbian campground resort? Getting
back ,o nature? Buiklmg a campfire, roasting marsh mellow~? Snug-
Yvith yGnr lo·ver in a tent under the stars? Isn't that romantic?
TRAVEL
Taking a hike in the woods? Swimming at their huge pooi or sun~
bathing? Even it you were not really into camping this would make
an ideal alternative for your next trip.
\X'hen we toured the campground it was unbelievable how many
people were there. Hundreds! Everyone was so Eriendiy. There is
truly a camaraderie going on there between all the guests. Many of
them are "seasonal" guests that park their RV's and trailers all year
long and come only on weekends from miles away and many of
their guests comes from Detroit, Chicago and Indiana as well as
ocher States.
They have special theme
weeks each summer including
Summer \X:'omen's Weekend,
Bears in the Woods, Commitment
Ceremony, Leather
weekend, Seasonal Gardening/
Landscaping, Family
pride week and of course
their famous Christmas in
Juiy weekend. The summers
on Lake :Michigan
are exo:emely cool and
at night you will neeci a
blanket.
Since this is a private resort,
membershio is mandatorv. However memberships
can be purchased fo~ as little as ${0.00 a year. The~ have
over 3200 members! Sally and Michael have put the emphasis on
their guests, making them feel like a family. The guests are what it's
all about. How many .times have you stayed at a resort or ho:el only
to be treated like a number? Not here! le is like a close-knit fum:ly. It
is the friendliest place that we've ever been. All of the guests enjoy
being around other people. It is certainly not a bar-like atmosphere
where everyone just stands around looking at each other. Everyone
here TALKS wich everyone and interacts. The personality of the
owners and staff of course play a large pan in all of this.
As most of our readers know, we are NOT "campers in the
·woods" however the next time we go co Saugatuck/Douglas, }\fichigan
in the summer we will certainiy stay ar thei:: Bunkhouse B and B
or in one of their log cabins.
The Campit is open from mid-April chru October. Their roll
free telephone number is: 877-CAlvfPIT 1. Check om their website
at: ,v,vw.campitresort.com or email ::hem at reservacions@campitresort.
com. On a personal note, we recommend the CAi\IPIT
very highly. Everything is done the ngn.t way there. The owners arc
extremely professional and conduct tl1eir busmesf in the righ, '-CW.

The neighborhood also has a few men's (mostly hard-core) leather
bars, such as the Chicago Eagle, which is attached to a bathhouse
and decorated like a motorcycle garage. If you have a place in your
heart for fitted jocks and Tom of Finland drawings, don't miss the
city's Leather Archives and Museum, which is packed \I.1th erotica,
fashion, and fascinating memorabilia from various international
leather contests.
Until recently, standard chain hotels dominated the lodging landscape
in Chicago, but quite a few hip hoteis have opened in the
past several years, including three run by the gay-friendly Kimpton
group: the French deco-inspired Hotel Monaco, the stylish and musically
themed Hotel Allegro, and the swell-elegant Hotel Burnham,
which is sec in the histodc 1894 cast-iron Reliance Building. The
superb Atwood Cafe occupies the ground floor. Another option
that offers style and luxury plus a fun attirude is the Hard Rock Hotel,
which is se~ inside the landmark 4(Lsrory Carbide and Carbon
Building, a fashionable property that's also home to the popular
China Griil.
lip near Boys' ·ro\l/11 there are fev:cr lodging options., but an excellent
resource 1s the gay-friendly ':'~eighborhood Inns group, which
runs a trio of boutique hotels ~wid1 charming roo1ns and great locariom,

New Gay and Lesbian Travel
Guide To Singapore, Malaysia &
Indonesia.
KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia_The l.'topia Guide to Singapore,
Malaysia and Indonesia, launched in late April, is the first such guide
for the three countries, said Utopia Guides editor John Goss.
'We are simply shining a light on an aspect of society that exists in
every country around the globe, but one that has been mostlv in the
shadows here in Asia," Goss told The Associated Press via e-mail
from the Thai capital, Bangkok, where l'topia Guides is based.
The first e,:er travel guide to gay and lesbian life in Singapore,
Malaysia and Indonesia. Listings include organizations, bars, discos,
accommodations, spas, restaurants, and more. A speciai seccion of
the book highlights groups, clubs, and businesses that are especially
welcoming for women. Enjoy hundreds of san·y comments and
recommendacions from local Utopians and gay travelers alike. The
Utopia Guide to Singapore, I'vfaiaysia & Indonesia offers a landmark
first iook at Southeast Asia's vibrant gay and lesbian scene.
Although there are many unigue a!tracttons for the gay and lesbian
travel in Asia, the following travel advisory is listed on Utopia
Guide's web-site.
Advisory: Gay life in Malaysia, as in other Asian countries, is blossoming
despite conservative religion-based discrimination and
outdated colonial-era laws. Former Deputy Prime :Minister, Aff,var
Ibrahim, was famously removed from office by a ~rumped-up
sodomy conviction that was reversed by Malaysia's high court in
2004. Muslims, both locai and visitors, are also subiecr to religious
law which may (though rarely does) punish gay or lesbian sexual
activity with flogging and male trans,·estism with imprisonment.
Even though religious law does not apply to non-.Muslims, Isiam is
the state religion under Malaysia's constitution and thas homosexuai
citizens face official discrimination. Police may arrest any person
(Muslim or not) for sex in a pubiic place .;i.e. cruise spots), so visirors
are well-advised to respect Malaysian law and customs while
they are guests in the count:y. Having said that, police generall;·
have not de:ained forfigners ciuring raids on :ocal gay businesses,
focusing instead on ethnic Maiay customers, almost 1 orJ\ n of ·.vhom
are considered :t,foslim a: birth by :a,,·. For more information go to:

Salutations ... Kittensl Uncle Mikey here with the Queer Yiew.
Summer is upon us. It is time once again for a more meaningful

Dear Uncie i\likey,
I ha,·e been seeing this guy for some time now and though 1 really
like him, I do not see a future for us. He wants to settle down and I
do not want to settle for anything less than fabulous, fast and flirty.
I have asked him to join me in rhe party know!l as my life, but he
wm not even try. I think that men were meant to single their earthly
pleasures. Should I just drop him, or continue to sway him my ,vav?
Hopeless Sex Da·wg
Dearest Pooch,· Unlcasheci,
Kitten it sounds as if the two of you are oil and water. You should
respect yourself as weil your man and tell him, your true imentions,
so that he will realize he is not going to change you, as he obviously
must fee!. This will a1lo·.\· him to search for a meaningful relationship,

Dear Cncle,
My friends are giving me crap because I have dropped out of college.
I ,vas tired of school and don't see why I should even iirijsh
,vhen I am making a killing as a bar entertainer/stripper. When I'm
in my g-scring, th; older ~en just fling their money ar me. I don't
feel that college is for e,uybody and :hink my time is better in the
field rather than studying abo:it it. \'<'hat do you ~hink?

Dear Twinkstcr,
Kitten, you might ·want to come from under that disco ball to hear

this to shall pass. The skin does wrinkle; the •;ouch does fade, and
ves - young 1)layer, time will trump your spade! Falling back on tha~
college degree does not sound so bad when you think about it. I
mean I suppose even rhe retirement gay villas need some form of
entertainment, rhough I fear the dollars v.1.ll siow, and ~he change

thought to this matter, whilst you are shaking that monev-maker.

I ne,;er had a bad one yet. I ha\·c had my share of loved shipmates;

Q Scopes
by Jack Fertig
JUNE 2006
"Review your budget, Pisces!"
Venus just entered Taurus, drawing our attention
to sensuality and comfort. Soft and comfy is in,
and shock value is out - or so says Venus. But
the Sun is in Gemini aspecting Jupiter in Scorpio,
drawing out secrets and offering titillation. Ideally,
it's time to invite some friends over for a cozy
evening with an early John Waters movie.
ARIES (March 20 -April 19): Trying new looks on impulse
is fun, but now shop for quality you can count on. Your wit
is turning quite wicked, sure to get you into a steamy situation
or just hot water. A time and a place for everything,
love!
TAURUS (April 20 - May 20): Thrift shops serving charities
hold hidden treasures for you. Economy is good, and may
be difficult to discuss with your partner, but the two of you
need to sort out financial issues. Just outline the situation
now, and answers will come later.
GEMINI (May 21- June 20): Bringing treats or favors to a
meeting is obviously manipulative, but it works, especially
now. Don't bother being coy or discreet. Joke about it and
put your aims up front. Honest manipulation works better
than subterfuge.
CANCER (June 21 - July 22): Your reputation is strong,
but it wouldn't hurt to focus on appearances. Charity work
opens opportunities for pleasure. That doesn't mean mercy
sex! People who share your passions for improving the
world can share ottier passions as wel!.
LEO (Juiy 23 ® August 22): You are very persuasive now,
more through gentle charm than the force or logic of your
arguments. New friends can shake up your perceptions of
who is "family." Be flexibie and open to that lesson!
VIRGO (August 23 - September 22): Your erotic sensuality,
usually underrated, comes to the foie now and could
become quite a topic of discussion! SUil, it's not what you
want to hear about over the water cooler. Pay attention.
and keep the talk at work focused to your advantage.
LIBRA (September 23 - October 22): Little arguments or
critiques easily get under your skin and dig up very deep issues.
Accept the chalienge to deal with them constructively.
Now is the time to iron out any problems in your relationship
and/or strengthen any commitments.
SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21): Good health
habits and exercise regimens started now will be easier
to maintain. Results come in time, although slowly. Good
safe-sex habits will come in handy! Erotic adventures will
offer interesting challenges, so don't be shy.
SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 20): Listen for
hidden motives, but be careful you don't go over the edge
into paranoia. A romantic retreat or an artistic, constructive
outlet will help you stay grounded and keep perspectiye.
CAPRICORN (December 21 - January 19): Your instincts
for teamwork are unusually sharp now. Trust your intuition,
but be very flexible and accommodating in the actual task
at hand. Reward your efforts with cozy comforts and homey
treats.
AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18): Playful impulses
at work should be sublimated to creative labors. You're
being watched more than you know, and your actions can
be easily misinterpreted. Don't explain your efforts unless
asked, but allow every opportunity to be asked!
PISCES (February 19 - March 19): Your ethnic roots are
showing. Affecting the accent of your forebears could be
very seductive or lead you into an interesting exchange of
ideas. Review your budget and financial plans.
28 Advertising in the STAR is just good business cents.
