Seeking Participants <strong>for</strong> UCLA Research Study<br />

on Long-Term Care<br />

What is the purpose of the research? To learn about... <br />

1. experiences between gay and lesbian (or non- heterosexual) older<br />

adults and long-term care providers and <br />

2. ideas about how long-term care providers can be responsive <strong>to</strong> lesbian<br />

and gay older people.<br />

Who can participate? Men who are at least 50 <strong>years</strong> old, have had<br />

contact with long-term care providers, and EITHER:<br />

• Identify as gay, OR BOTH <br />

• have had only male sex partners over the past 20 <strong>years</strong> <br />

• are only attracted <strong>to</strong> men <br />

What does participation involve? If you volunteer <strong>for</strong> this study you will<br />

be asked <strong>to</strong> participate in a one-on-one interview in which you will answer<br />

questions about your experience of long-term care providers and ideas<br />

about what it means <strong>for</strong> long-term care providers <strong>to</strong> be responsive <strong>to</strong><br />

lesbian and gay older adults. You will also be asked <strong>to</strong> provide feedback on<br />

the researcher’s analysis at a later date. You will be able <strong>to</strong> withdraw from<br />

the study at any time with no penalty. Each participant will receive $40. You<br />

do NOT need <strong>to</strong> travel <strong>to</strong> UCLA <strong>to</strong> participate.<br />

JERSEY’S JOURNAL by Jersey Shore<br />

Welcome <strong>to</strong> Jersey’s Journal. Because<br />

it’s titled Jersey’s Journal, which gives<br />

me the right <strong>to</strong> write whatever is<br />

hanging off of my nose. Lately, and<br />

much <strong>to</strong>o often, people like <strong>to</strong> voice<br />

their opinions thanks <strong>to</strong> this thing<br />

we call social media. <strong>The</strong>y write<br />

about how there are two sides <strong>to</strong><br />

every s<strong>to</strong>ry, but if you don’t believe<br />

their side of the s<strong>to</strong>ry, then you are<br />

wrong. <strong>The</strong> new trend is unfriending<br />

someone who supports a presidential<br />

candidate that isn’t their own choice.<br />

That’s pretty idiotic, ya think? I like<br />

vanilla ice cream, are you going <strong>to</strong><br />

unfriend me?<br />

What I write about is my side of a<br />

random situation. It’s not even a true<br />

s<strong>to</strong>ry. A Fab-rication. It’s what we do;<br />

exaggerate the truth <strong>to</strong> prove a point.<br />

It has <strong>to</strong> be driven in<strong>to</strong> thick skulls<br />

so over emphasis is high priority<br />

these days. So, <strong>for</strong> the vain, insecure,<br />

ridiculous, bot<strong>to</strong>m feeders: You can<br />

s<strong>to</strong>p thinking that every word I write<br />

is about you. It’s never about you. I<br />

don’t sit around wondering about<br />

you. I know how you are and I don’t<br />

care. I will continue <strong>to</strong> concentrate<br />

on myself and the few good people in<br />

my life. I will be creating positive energy<br />

and eliminating the negativity.<br />

Good things happen with a positive<br />

attitude. I say that every week, so if<br />

you are an avid opinionated person,<br />

then get your own article. Or try <strong>to</strong>o.<br />

Write <strong>to</strong> all those fabulous, lovely,<br />

uninterested people.<br />

Okay, I’m done! I’ll wipe myself and<br />

get off the pot because I can only<br />

stand so much useless shit <strong>for</strong> so<br />

long! I just flush once <strong>to</strong> conserve<br />

water.<br />

ART AND WAR A JOURNEY TO HEALING THROUGH<br />

CREATING<br />

Brian Rock was one of the exhibiting artists<br />

mentioned in last week’s article on the Indian<br />

Wells Art Fair.<br />

Brian grew up in Belfast, Ireland during<br />

some of the most violent, tumultuous times<br />

in the conflict in that country.<br />

He was wounded during the sectarian violence<br />

there and then moved <strong>to</strong> the United<br />

States in 1998. He joined the U.S. Military<br />

as a way <strong>to</strong> give back <strong>to</strong> his newly adopted<br />

country. He served during three major<br />

operations, including overseas service. This<br />

left him with additional scars and dealing<br />

with post traumatic stress after leaving<br />

the military in 2013. He has since been<br />

painting and sculpting as a way <strong>to</strong> help him<br />

alleviate the violent memories and anger of<br />

participating in the destruction and devestation<br />

of war<br />

Brian self discovered art <strong>to</strong> help him respond<br />

<strong>to</strong> the chaos of war that haunted<br />

him. One of his sculpture pieces<br />

is a dramatic bronzed sculpture, in which<br />

a human head wrapped in barbed wire, is<br />

surrounded by the many pill bottles which<br />

had contained the medications that were<br />

not effective in his ptsd treatment.<br />

His work is reflective of the destructive<br />

power of IED’s and other weaponry of war<br />

that maimed and killed children, adults and<br />

veterans. He was completing a work at the<br />

site of the Indian Wells Art Fair, a collage,<br />

titled “Playground”. This was composed of<br />

empty shell casings, soil, bits of fabric and<br />

<strong>to</strong>ys, and in the center a small red dress<br />

entwined in barbed wire. This provided a<br />

visually powerful work, dramatically portraying<br />

the human destruction of war. Brian’s<br />

work also includes paintings conveying<br />

emotions of explosions through color and<br />

composition.<br />

His work has been recognized and collected<br />

by a number of organizations and<br />

individuals, including: Global Campaign<br />

Against Improvised Explosive Devices, the<br />

U.S. Veterans Artist Alliance, United States<br />

Museum of the Army, Blinded Veterans<br />

Association, Ian Anderson and Jethro Tull,<br />

<strong>to</strong> name just a few.<br />

Brian’s work is an example of art conveying<br />

emotion while helping him <strong>to</strong> heal the<br />

psychological wounds of war. He lives in<br />

New Mexico where he maintains his studio<br />

and continues <strong>to</strong> work, providing a message<br />

<strong>to</strong> others<br />

and as a therapy <strong>to</strong> himself.<br />

Next week, another artist who has experienced<br />

prison and exile <strong>to</strong> maintain her<br />

creative work as an artist.<br />

Anna Marie “Patty” Duke (December 14, 1946 – <strong>March</strong> 29, <strong>2016</strong>) was an American actress of<br />

stage, film, and television. She first became known as a teen star, winning an Academy Award<br />

<strong>for</strong> Best Supporting Actress at age 16 <strong>for</strong> her role as Helen Keller in <strong>The</strong> Miracle Worker (1962),<br />

a role which she had originated on Broadway.[ <strong>The</strong> following year she was given her own show,<br />

<strong>The</strong> Patty Duke Show, in which she played “identical cousins”; she later progressed <strong>to</strong> more<br />

mature roles such as that of Neely O’Hara in the film Valley of the Dolls (1967).[1] Over the<br />

course of her career, she received ten Emmy Award nominations and three Emmy Awards, and<br />

two Golden Globe Awards. Duke also served as president of the Screen Ac<strong>to</strong>rs Guild from 1985<br />

<strong>to</strong> 1988.<br />

THAT IS FUNNY<br />

Once a nun was taking a bath when someone knocked on the door,<br />

“Who is it?”<br />

“ It’s the blind man, can I come in?”<br />

She decides <strong>to</strong> let him,<br />

“Okay” she says, he walked in and says:<br />

“Nice tits, now where do you want me <strong>to</strong> hang the blind?”<br />

Q:What’s the difference between being hungry and horny?<br />

A: Where you put the cucumber.<br />

During a funeral, the pallbearers accidentally bump in<strong>to</strong> a wall and hear a faint moan. <strong>The</strong>y open the<br />

casket and find out that the woman is actually alive.<br />

She lives <strong>for</strong> 10 more <strong>years</strong> and then dies. <strong>The</strong>re is another funeral <strong>for</strong> her. At the end of the service, the<br />

pallbearers carry out the casket.<br />

As they are walking out, the husband cries out, “Watch out <strong>for</strong> the wall!”<br />

THE LAST WORD by Greg Pettis<br />

Welcome <strong>to</strong> the NEW last word. It is with<br />

some trepidation that I follow my dear late<br />

friend George Zander in authoring this column,<br />

but I will strive <strong>to</strong> reach his high standards.<br />

It is the season of joy, rebirth and of<br />

course the high holy <strong>Gay</strong> days of spring; Cathedral<br />

City’s LGBT Days, the White Party and all<br />

that is Dinah Shore!<br />

Cathedral City launched the festivities with<br />

the opening and dedication of its new rainbow<br />

crosswalk, in front of city hall and the iconic<br />

Bell Tower. Interestingly, the crosswalk is at E.<br />

<strong>Palm</strong> Canyon and George Montgomery Road.<br />

Montgomery, local artist, sculp<strong>to</strong>r and ac<strong>to</strong>r,<br />

was married <strong>to</strong> Dinah Shore.<br />

While this new “street tat<strong>to</strong>o” is designed <strong>to</strong> be<br />

temporary, it seems fitting that the city with<br />

the first <strong>Gay</strong> majority city council and home <strong>to</strong><br />

the valley’s first <strong>Gay</strong> Pride celebration 35 <strong>years</strong><br />

ago, would use its dedication <strong>to</strong> start its second<br />

annual celebration of LGBT Days.<br />

<strong>The</strong> weekend began with the obliga<strong>to</strong>ry cocktail<br />

party on Festival Lawn near Bonta Restaurant<br />

and the <strong>Palm</strong> <strong>Springs</strong> <strong>Gay</strong> Men’s Chorus<br />

in concert. Mayor Stan Henry welcomed the<br />

crowd and issued a proclamation <strong>to</strong> Richard<br />

Altman, owner of CCBC Resort as a LGBT<br />

Ambassador <strong>to</strong> the community at large. A<br />

raucous crowd of several hundred cheered,<br />

groaned and cat called through “Rocky Horror<br />

Picture Show” at the Mary Pick<strong>for</strong>d <strong>The</strong>ater.<br />

Saturday began with the costume bed race.<br />

You can just imagine beds on wheels decorated<br />

in fairy finest. <strong>The</strong> race winners were<br />

those hunky providers of public health and<br />

safety - the Cathedral City Fire Department!<br />

In the afternoon we celebrated with a sold out<br />

crowd <strong>to</strong> a champagne brunch and entertained<br />

by the fabulous Coco Peru! And of course<br />

the day couldn’t go with out an Easter Bonnet<br />

Parade! <strong>The</strong> evening brought a packed house<br />

<strong>to</strong> the Mary Pick<strong>for</strong>d <strong>for</strong> a showing of Sordid<br />

Lives, with the cast and direc<strong>to</strong>r, Del Shores,<br />

in attendance. For the less risqué members of<br />

the community, Despicable Me was shown on<br />

a giant outdoor screen with families of all ages<br />

and sizes bursting Panorama Park <strong>to</strong> its seams.<br />

Sunday was again a joyous family event with<br />

the annual Easter egg hunt and once again the<br />

city’s full diversity was on display. We wait <strong>to</strong><br />

see what Jeffrey Sanker has in s<strong>to</strong>re <strong>for</strong> us!<br />

On a more serious note, we sadly saw Georgia’s<br />

legislature pass virulent anti-LGBT legislation.<br />

San Francisco promptly banned government<br />

travel <strong>to</strong> the state and Disney launched an<br />

entertainment boycott as well. At the writing,<br />

it was just announced the Governor was going<br />

<strong>to</strong> ve<strong>to</strong> the bill but the damage is done. We<br />

may have marriage, but we still have ignorance<br />

and bigotry <strong>to</strong> fight against.<br />

Even while we celebrate, always be vigilant. I<br />

leave <strong>to</strong>day <strong>for</strong> Bangalore, India. Homosexuality<br />

is still illegal through the country. I’ll report<br />

back what I see how our community is faring.<br />

Celebrate and enjoy!<br />
