The only thing constant is change, or so they tell us, and this month's Stallion
is indeed noticeably different. Ever since its first issue in April, 1982, one
of the most popular features has been Casey Donovan's "Letters to Casey"
column, and during the intervening years. he has dispensed sound practical information
and advice on everything from kinks to romance, from politics to religion, from
homemaking to world travel. Now, the gay "Dear Abby" —as he
has been termed in some circles — has decided to hang up his typewriter.
In his letter of resignation, he cites increased time-consuming travel, leading
tours for Hanns Ebensten Travel, and fundraising trips for the National AIDS
network as the primary reason for his departure from these pages. Over the years,
no question has been asked of me more frequently than, "He doesn't really
write the column, does he? Who really writes it?" I am delighted to say,
loud and clear, that there has not been one word written under his by-line that
he did not write himself. For the last decade and more, Casey — who is
equally well known by his real name. Calvin Culver — has been both my
personal friend and my professional associate in film, theatre, and publishing.
I shall miss our professional alliance immeasurably, just as I know our readers
Now, for the good news. In his stead, we have been most fortunate in securing
the services of Jeanne Barney, a legendary figure in the gay community and a
woman who knows more about gay men than any other female I've ever met. She
is perhaps best known as the originator of the noted "Smoke from Jeannie's
Lamp" column, which first appeared in the old Advocate and was for many
years syndicated throughout the country. She was also co-founder and editor
of Drummer Magazine, and during the infamous 1976 Mark IV Slave Auction Raid
in Los Angeles, thirty-nine men and one woman were arrested. She was not one
of the thirty-nine men.
So, dear Jeanne has been around. There is nothing you can't ask her—and
we hope you will. Her first column for Stallion appears on page 18. Keep those
cards and letters, as they say, coming.
