ASU graduate Jonathan Herrera signs a party notice he received Saturday morning at around 3 a.m.

Homecoming party draws crowd

With maroon-and-gold balloons and decorations littering campus, and live music blasting through the air, current and former students gathered to celebrate ASU's homecoming at a block party Saturday afternoon.

The ASU Office of Public Affairs hosted the third annual block party, which stretched from Old Main to Palo Verde Beach. Individual schools, clubs and organizations lined the University with informational tents.

ASU alumna Brandie Harris came to the block party with her husband and two daughters. She said she enjoyed visiting the various schools' tents.

"We wanted to support ASU," Harris added. "It's very neat this year."

The family visited the Polytechnic campus booth and the College of Education booths.

Get it Out

Jacie* lounges comfortably on a cream-colored leather chair just weeks before she will have the sexual reassignment surgery necessary for her to become a woman. The political science and history sophomore pushes back her dark, red-highlighted hair as she recalls how a fundamentalist Christian counselor caused her a painful bout of depression and self-doubt over her status as a male-to-female transsexual.

"Doctors aren't supposed to fuck with your head and play games," Jacie says. "That's nowhere in the Hippocratic oath."

Her feminine voice rises in volume as she describes the mental scars the therapy left behind.

Mindful: Psychiatric Revolution

Dr. Robert Spitzer never spoke to an openly gay person until activists crashed a meeting of behavioral psychologists discussing the treatment of homosexuality in 1972.

Spitzer, who is now a professor of psychiatry at Columbia University, later talked to the gay-rights activists, who discovered he was a member of the committee responsible for revising the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders.
