Stacey Q is back! After creating a special
niche for herself in the dance/music scene with
her unique brand of techno-rock and up-tempo
dance music, her newest album gives us more of
what her fans have been waiting for.
The album, Nights Like This, marks a defi-
nite maturation point and musical diversification
for Miss Q. While it does contain a great deal of
the dance music we would expect, it also features
a great deal of mellow music as well. Seven of
the ten numbers on the album were co-written by
Stacey, making it her strongest effort to date.
Bom Stacey Swain ip 1959 in Anaheim,
California, she had early ambitions of being a
ballerina. She later joined the Ringling Brothers,
Bamum and Bailey Circus as a showgirl. Fol-
lowing the circus, she went to work in an elec-
tronics factory, and later became a cashier at the
Anaheim Marriott. There she met Jon St. James,
who owned a small recording studio. They
produced a hit single, released it through a friend’s
small record company, and went about the busi-
ness of distributing, marketing and promoting
the record. It caught fire in the east LA. discos,
where they found themselves spending a lot of
time. The single sold 25,000 copies, and she was
signed by Atlantic records. When they released
the single, it became a national dance floor and
Top 40 smash, titled ‘Two of Hearts," followed
by her First album, Better Than Heaven.
Following this success was another Atlantic
album, Hard Machine, which featured the dance
floor hit, “Don’t Make a Fool of Yourself’. But
her newest album is a real joy, featuring good
dance tracks, mellow music, and a great all-
Side One opens with “Give You All My
Love,” followed by the sultry “Nights Like This,”
which, like most of the othernumbers, are slower,
danceable cuts. The best slow ballad, “Heart-
beat,” follows. Picking up the pace is a great
traditional disco dance number, “Incognito,” and
Side One finishes with a happy time, ‘Take That
Holiday,” which most of us could happily iden-
tify with. Side Two features more slower, funky
dance tunes with romantic themes. Sure, there
are no real thought-provoking lyrics, and you
Bon Jovi fans may find it a little bland. But for
dance music lovers, and those who enjoy a lighter
pop sound, it’s a great music collection. It is
perfect for party music, and especially great top
enjoy on your porch or by the pool the day after
a night in the bars. A nice collection of musical

I don’t understand the extremes I see in our
gay community. In fact, I find drag queens and
leather masters and slaves embarrassing. How
can we expect to be accepted by the straight
community with so many ready targets for ridi-
cule? Why do many of us have to be nelly or
flamboyant or seem so silly? I have a hard time
dealing with those people or with butch dykes.
Why can’t we dress and act more normally? Sign
A Concerned and Puzzled Gay
Dear Concerned and Puzzled,
First off if Tny opinion that if straight
people accept us only if we are like them or don’t
look or act any differently, that acceptance is at
least meaningless or in fact no acceptance at all.
Acceptance, to my mind, means accepting us as
we are, where we are.
Second, I think such problems we have with
acceptance are more genuinely about learning to
accept ourselves and to realize our own v alue and
values, rather than just aping those of the “op-
Third, to me, that self-acceptance means not
only each of us learning to accept ourselves, but
to understand that the wide range of diversity in
gay society is like the range of colors in a glorious
tapestry or wonderful patchwork. Its very strength
and beauty and character is because of its color
and variety. Bleaching it out to some pale shade
of its former self could only serve to weaken the
fibre and make it bland.
My fourth (and you may be hoping, final)
point is that our only real hope for a real place in
American society is by helping this great country
realize that its greatness is in its diversity, how-
ever broad that may be. And that we all must
learn to work together, live together, and have
real consciousness about one another’s problems
