National PFLAG Presents Safe Schools
Training in Evansville on Sat., Sept. 17
www.tsagl.org
The Greater Evansville PFLAG (Parents, Families and
Friends of Lesbians and Gays) will host a training conducted by the National PFLAG on how to impact schools
to make them safer. The training is limited to 20 participants, and will be held in Evansville on Saturday, Sept. 17
from 8:30am – 5pm Central Time. The location of the
training is the 1st Presbyterian Church of Evansville. Con-
tact Wally at [email protected] or 812-4800204 to register. Mekina Morgan - Safe Schools and
Diversity Outreach Coordinator, PFLAG National, will be
the trainer. Mekina received her Bachelor of Arts from
Trinity Washington University (Trinity College) and a Mas-
ter of Arts in Teaching from American University. Prior to
her position at PFLAG National, Mekina worked as an elementary school teacher over a span of eight years. During
those years, she advocated for inclusive curriculums that
promoted understanding, awareness and acceptance
through literature. At PFLAG National, she is able to continue her advocacy work by presenting PFLAG‟s Cultivating Respect Certification Program in which PFLAG members are trained to work in schools to help provide a safe
and nurturing environment for LGBT youth. Mekina also
develops and conducts diversity workshops to provide
practical strategies to help members reach out to broader
communities.

The Red Party, formerly Art for Life, is enjoying its 8th
year. The first year our event was held at Kirby‟s in
Downtown Evansville on the Saturday before Thanksgiving. The 2nd through 7th years were held at Old
National Bank in Downtown Evansville on the Friday
before Thanksgiving. The 8th annual event is being
held at Buxton Motors, and has moved up by a weekend to avoid those leaving town on Thanksgiving vacation. TSA thanks all of its volunteers over the years
that made both this event and the Celebrity Dinner
possible, including the original volunteers pictured
above.

Wording of the Indiana Marriage
Discrimination Amendment
“Only a marriage between one (1) man and one (1)
woman shall be valid or recognized as a marriage
in Indiana. A legal status identical or substantially
similar to that of marriage for unmarried
individuals shall not be valid or recognized.”
Henderson Zion UCC Schedules
Concert on Tues. Sept. 20
Singer/Songwriter Roy Zimmerman will bring his traveling
show, "Live From the Starving Ear," to Zion United Church of
Christ in Henderson, KY, September 20. The concert will begin
at 7 p.m. in a coffee house setting in Zion's Fellowship Hall at
437 First Street in Henderson. The suggested donation is $15 at
the door and will include coffee and light refreshments.
“Live From the Starving Ear” is 90 minutes of Zimmerman‟s
funny songs about war, ignorance and greed. The Tea Party,
the economy, same-sex marriage, Socialism, Creationism, guns,
taxes, abstinence and yes, President Obama all come under
tuneful scrutiny. “There‟s a whole new political landscape,” he
says, “painted by Jackson Pollock.”
In twelve albums over twenty years, Zimmerman has brought
the sting of satire to the struggle for Peace and Social Justice. His songs have been heard on HBO and Showtime. He
has recorded for Warner/Reprise Records. He has been profiled
on NPR‟s “All Things Considered,” and he is a featured blogger
for the Huffington Post. Zimmerman's YouTube videos have
garnered over six million views and tens of thousands of comments, many of them coherent.
The Los Angeles Times says, “Zimmerman displays a lacerating wit and keen awareness of society‟s foibles that bring to mind
a latter-day Tom Lehrer.”
Tom Lehrer himself says, "I congratulate Roy Zimmerman on
reintroducing literacy to comedy songs. And the rhymes actually
rhyme, they don't just 'rhyne.'"
Joni Mitchell says, "Roy's lyrics move beyond poetry and
achieve perfection."
For more information, call Rev. Phil Hoy at 437-9295 or

Remember TSA in Your Will
By Wally Paynter
Making a difference in our community is important. TSA has worked
to serve our community since 1980. To make a difference in our community, donations of time and money have always been very important.
One way to continue to make a difference is by remembering TSA in
your estate planning. I choose to volunteer for the 3 charities that are
the most important to me and my life (TSA, MDA and 1st Presbyterian
Church).
As I prepared my will, I have included TSA, MDA and my church in
my estate planning. Though this will not be a lot of money, it will be
my way to help make a difference in the future after I am gone.
I would like to encourage you to consider the Tri-State Alliance as
your prepare your estate. Our legal name is the Tri-State Alliance,
Inc., our address is PO Box 2901, Evansville, IN 47728, and our Federal ID number is 35-1636272. Whether you remember us in your
will, life estate or in your life insurance, you can help us continue to
make a difference. TSA has served our region for 29 years, and your
consideration will help us continue to make a difference into the future! Contact me at 812-480-0204 or [email protected] for more
information.
TSA Education / Diversity Presentations
Gay & Lesbian Images in American Film.
Lecture format
includes a brief overview of historical Hollywood and the fate of all minorities
in American movies from silent era to 1970s. Portions of the HBO Documentary “The Celluloid Closet” are used, as are brief film clips from other pre 1967
American films depicting GLBT images. Hollywood attempted at first to hide
the fact there were GLBT people in America, then directors used a variety of
“Subtext” to include GLBT characters, and finally Hollywood used such images in very negative ways, reinforcing stereotypes.
The Hidden Holocaust: Lecture gives brief overview of the historical
evolution of the GLBT population in Europe during the latter 19th and early
20th century, culminating in the Gay Renaissance of Berlin in the 1920‟s. The
documentary “Paragraph 175” is shown, presenting the few survivors of the
Nazi death camps and their personal stories.
4000 Years of GLBT History: A power point presentation showing
images from around the world of GLBT people and events from a little known
Egyptian tomb from 2400 BC, to the current status of the campaign for marriage equality in the US and Europe. Some surprising images from a history
that is seldom seen.
For the above presentations, contact TSA VP of Education Kelley
Coures at [email protected]
Working with Diverse Populations: we meet with substance
abuse treatment facilities, churches, schools, social service and medical
agencies, and university classes to talk about working with GLBT communities in a culturally competent fashion.
Current Issues in the HIV / AIDS Pandemic: from local to
international, get an update about the HIV / AIDS Pandemic, and find out how
YOU can make a difference!

Gay Marriage by Sara Ann Corrigan
I have been thinking about this for a long time. Now, recent events
–or rather their cancellation, right here in Evansville – have brought
it back into the forefront of my thoughts:
This country is expending an obscene amount of time, energy and
money over the definition of a word.
Marriage.
It really has to stop. We have much bigger socio/economic fish to
fry. And the fury surrounding the definition and application of this
word only distracts our attention away from those fish who are
swimming merrily away with our history, our heritage and our fiscal
solvency.
I have a really simple, cost effective and egalitarian solution to this
controversy, although not one that is necessarily going to make
either side of the debate completely happy.
There is a major premise that must be re-embraced. A premise
that is as old as the country itself, and that premise has to do with
Congress making no laws respecting the institutionalization of any
religion as arbiter of any kind of law regarding personal behavior.
There is an element in our society that seems to feel this element
of our Constitution is irrelevant. Or in error.
I would posit that they are the ones in error.
Separating government interests and religious interests is a critical lynch pin in what makes this country “work.”
So let‟s talk about marriage. In Judeo-Christian circles it is defined
as a union between a man and a woman. Fine. No problem there.
So long as it stays there.
The part of the constitution that separates church and state ensures the freedom of religious entities to establish their own rules of
engagement – so to speak: Want to belong to a church? Follow the
rules, OK?
But this definition has no place in the secular world of lawmaking
because by its very nature it is using a religious precept to establish
law.
The State, by which I mean all states, has such a vested interest
in “marriage” that in order to GET married, a couple must secure a
state-issued “Marriage license,” a legally-binding contract between
two consenting adults.
This contract includes a raft of rights and responsibilities, most of
them financial in nature.
No license? No marriage. Period. It‟s the law of the land.
However in most states marriage licenses currently are granted
only to a coupling between “a man and a woman.”
Therein lies the rub: The State is embracing a Judeo-Christian
precept and making it the law of the land.
This is wrong.
So here is what I propose: The State-issued license itself should
be renamed, at a federal level, so that all states are in compliance.
Call it a “Civil Union License” and make it available to all consenting
adults regardless of their gender makeup, because anything less
violates the constitutional imperative regarding separation of church
and state.
Then, if the licensed couple, regardless of gender makeup, belongs to or can find a religious institution that will convey the sacrament of holy marriage on them, they are certainly free to pursue it.
Nothing else has to change.
Except the hate speech surrounding the subject.

Joseph E. Lowery.

About Rev. Dr. Joseph E. Lowery: Hailed as the “Dean of the Civil
RightsMovement” upon his receipt of
the NAACP‟s “Lifetime Achievement
Award,” Rev. Dr. Joseph Echols
Lowery has assumed and executed
a broad and diverse series of roles
over the span of his eight decades:
leader, pastor/preacher, servant,
father, husband, freedom fighter,
and advocate.
One milestone in this remarkable
journey took place on August 12,
2009, when President Barack
Obama awarded him the nation‟s
highest civilian honor, The Presidential Medal of Freedom, in recognition
of his lifelong commitment to the
nonviolent struggle
for the causes of
justice, human
rights, economic
equality, voting
rights, peace, and
human dignity.
Prior to that, on
January 20, 2009, in
his inimitable style,
Dr. Lowery delivered
the benediction on
the occasion of
President Obama‟s
inauguration as the
44th President of the
United States.
His legacy of service and struggle is
long and rich. In
1957, he co-founded
the Southern Christian Leadership Conference
(SCLC) with friend and colleague
Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. He
served as SCLC‟s Vice President
(1957-„67), Chairman of the Board
(1967-„77) and as President and
Chief Executive Officer (1977–
„98).
In March 1965, he was chosen
by Dr. King to chair the delegation
delivering the demands of the
Selma to Montgomery March to
Alabama Governor George Wallace. As the world witnessed, Wallace ordered the marchers beaten
in the incident that came to be
known as “Bloody Sunday” which
ultimately led to enactment of the
Voting Rights Act. Years later, in
1995, as Dr. Lowery led the 30th
Anniversary Re-enactment of the
historic march, former Gov. Wallace personally apologized to him
for his conduct.
Ebony Magazine, in recognizing
Dr. Lowery as one of the nation‟s
“15 Greatest Black Preachers,” described him as the “consummate
voice of biblical social relevancy, a
focused prophetic voice, speaking
truth to power.” He was internationally celebrated and admired for such
inspired and bold messages of truth
when he delivered eulogies at the
funerals of Rosa Parks and Coretta
Scott King.
As convener of the Georgia Coalition for the People‟s Agenda
(GCPA), he is active in election reform and voter empowerment, economic justice, criminal justice reform, including alternative sentencing, and a moratorium on the death
penalty. He is in frequent demand
as a speaker across the nation and
on college campuses.
