Transcript HOUSTON VOICE www.houstonvoice.com JUNE 17 2005 5 I national news briefs Judge approves trans man's shared custody rights MIAMI (AP) — A Florida judge last week approved a shared-custody settlement reached in mediation by a transsexual man and his ex-wife over their two children, ending a bitter dispute that wound up on national television. "I just think there is a great message of hope that comes out of this," said Karen Doering, attorney for the husband, Michael Kantaras. Kantaras, born Margo Kantaras, underwent a sex change operation in 1987. He married Linda Forsythe in 1989, and they settled in the St. Petersburg area. They had two children, a boy from a prior relationship of Linda Kantaras adopted by Michael Kantaras, and a daughter she bore in 1992 following artificial insemination with sperm donated by her husband's brother. The couple divorced in 2002, and he was awarded custody of the children. She appealed, even though both lawyers said the judge deemed the husband to be more fit as a parent. A Michael Kantaras, who underwent a sex-change Florida appeals court in Lakeland said there operation in 1987, won shared custody of his two was no legal marriage for a court to dissolve, children last week after a bitter dispute with his and remanded the custody challenge to a ex-wife.

(AP) — A new federal lawsuit seeks to strike down Michigan's constitutional amendment that defines marriage as a union between a man and a woman, saying it violates the U.S. Constitution. Bangor attorney Jessie Olson is named as a co-plaintiff with her partner in the suit filed last week in U.S. District Court in Kalamazoo. She said the amendment is stripping away job benefits such as health insurance from gay and unmarried heterosexual domestic partners, and their children. Michigan voters approved the amendment, which adds Section 25 to Article 1 of the state's constitution, with November's passage of Proposal 2. "Section 25 applies at all levels of state, county and municipal government, imposing a special disability on people in same-sex relationships whether they seek protection for their relationships from government employers, administrative agencies, cities, towns or the state legislature," the lawsuit says. Two gay former high school students awarded $300,000 in Calif, lawsuit SAN DIEGO (AP) — Two gay former high school students in San Diego County were awarded $300,000 after a jury found school officials failed to protect them from harassment. Jurors determined Joseph Ramelli and Megan Donovan, both 19, were harassed with the knowledge of officials at Poway High School in Poway about 20 miles northeast of San Diego. Both students were harmed after authorities didn't do enough to prevent harassment, jurors said. Ramelli was awarded $175,000 and Donovan $125,000. Plaintiffs' attorney Bridget J. Wilson argued during trial that school officials took "minimal or no action at all" even though the two were verbally threatened, and Ramelli was spit on, punched, kicked and had his car vandalized. Both students left the school following their junior year and enrolled in an independent study program before graduating. Ore. Senate panel OKs civil unions, as Maine kills marriage amendment SALEM, Ore. (AP) — A Senate panel passed a bill to create civil unions last week, the latest step in the legislature's battle over whether gay couples should have legally recognized relationships. The bill to extend the benefits and rights of marriage to gay couples passed on a partisan 3-2 vote, with Democrats in favor. It will now head to the full Senate, where it is expected to pass, setting up a tug-of-war with the Republican-controlled House, which is considering its own bill. That legislation would provide a more limited set of reciprocal rights to any two people over 18, including relatives. Sen. Charles Starr (R-Hillsboro) argued that the bill goes against the will of the voters, who passed a ban on gay marriage last year. Meanwhile, a proposed constitutional amendment in Maine seeking to ban same-sex marriages is dead for the session following a Senate vote last week. The amendment would have needed a two-thirds vote of approval in the House and Senate to be sent on to voters. Early in the week, representatives denied the bill even a majority vote of approval as they rejected it 88-56. After fight, N.Y. GOP adds gay group to executive committee ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — Over the objections of one of its more conservative leaders. New York's Republican State Committee voted last week to give a seat on its executive committee to a group that represents gay GOP members. The vote to give the Log Cabin Republicans representation on the executive committee came at a closed-door meeting of the state GOP leadership and over the objections of state Sen. Serphin Maltese, the Queens GOP chair. "I felt a group should not be recognized strictly on sexual orientation," Maltese said. From staff and wire reports Cheri A.
