Singing on the Sidewalk: Queer Liberation Army Carolers 

Local Matters

On Monday evening, a handful of carolers from the Queer Liberation Army serenaded workers at the Burlington office of weapons-maker General Dynamics. The singers huddled on the sidewalk out front, clutching antiwar signs in their gloved hands. "Hark! The QLA doth say," they warbled to the tune of "Hark! The Herald Angels Sing," "Peace and love are here to stay. / Raise your joyous voices high, / don't let little children die." Several G.D. employees watched the group warily from a front office. A few honked, or gave the peace sign as they drove off. Others turned away.

    Burlington's Turning Point Center is a refuge for Vermonters who are trying to find their way out of drug dependence. In the stairwell leading to the center, a mural depicts a giant hand reaching down to a solitary slouching figure. Just outside the center's door at the top of the stairs, is another message: "You are no longer alone."
