* IT'S BEEN 30 YEARS SINCE DADE: In the first few years following 1969’s 
Stonewall Riots, lesbigay activists lobbied for and secured ordinances protecting 
them from discrimination in several municipalities.  But on June 7, 1977, 
voters repealed a similar DADE COUNTY, FLORIDA measure that had originally been 
unanimously approved by the local County Commission.  It was the first 
full-scale battle in the U.S. between the burgeoning religious right and a politically 
naive queer community, and the first to get the attention of the national -- 
even international -- mainstream media.  Former beauty queen runner-up, pop 
singer and Florida Orange Juice spokesperson ANITA BRYANT led the "Save Our 
Children" repeal effort, warning that homosexuals can't reproduce, so they have to 
"recruit" youngsters into their "immoral lifestyle".  Many incredulous gays 
and lesbians couldn't understand how anyone would believe such drivel.  But they 
were shocked out of their closets by the over 2-to-1 majority voting for 
repeal, taking to the streets to protest – many for the first time - in the days 
following what came to be called "Orange Tuesday".  This Way Out's LUCIA 
CHAPPELLE and GREG GORDON, who originally covered the events as they unfolded for 
the "IMRU" radio program on KPFK-FM/Los Angeles, use archival sound to recall 
the early days of a battle that continues to this day (with musical excerpts 
from "My Little Corner of the World" by ANITA BRYANT, "Don't Drink the Orange 
Juice" by ROD McKUEN, "Don't Pray For Me" by MARY WATKINS, and TOM 
WILSON-WEINBERG's "Save Our Children/Recruiters Fight Song" in its entirety).
