Around the Nation Dayton rejects gay rights bill; Lakewood considering DP benefits DAYTON, Ohio (AP)-City leaders on Dec. 22 refused to change Dayton's anti-discrimination law to protect gay men and lesbians in employment and housing. More than 40 people spoke before the city commission voted 4-1 to remove Commission member Mary Wiseman's proposal from the calendar, effectively killing the proposal for now. After the vote, the commission unanimously approved an informal resolution stating that it does not condone discrimination against any group, including gays, and opposes any attempt to deny gays their rights. Meanwhile in Lakewood, a Cleveland suburb, the city council is considering providing unmarried partners of city employees, including same-sex couples, with the same benefits as married couples. A council vote could come as early as Jan. 17. Washington, N.Y. schools sued over anti-gay harassment SPOKANE, WASH-School officials in two states have been sued by students who charge that they were harassed for being gay, or for having gay family members. In Spokane, Wash., two brothers—one who other students thought was gay, and one who was taunted because of his brother's reputed sexual orientation—have sued for unspecified damages, charging that the actions the school district took "only increased the harassment to both children." The younger brother says he is not gay, "but it doesn't matter if you're homosexual or heterosexual," said Sheryl Phillabaum, the family's lawyer. "It's still not okay to be called those derogatory names." Meanwhile, in Sand Lake, N.Y., the mother of a student who dropped out of high school because of verbal and physical abuse from classmates is suing the school district and the Board of Education, the Albany Times Union reported Dec. 22. The 17-year-old boy dropped out of school in April after years of almost daily mocking, ridicule and torment. In a letter to Averill Park Central Schools Superintendent Michael Johnson, attorney Richard L. DiMaggio wrote: "The viciousness of the student body is no worse than the deaf ear your faculty has turned on [him]." Judge delays ruling in school's bid to dismiss DP suit PITTSBURGH-A judge withheld his ruling until at least Jan. 12 on the University of Pittsburgh's latest attempt to kill a four-year-old same-sex benefits case, the Pittsburgh Post Gazette reported Dec. 22. Pitt asked Common Pleas Judge Robert C. Gallo to dismiss seven current and former workers' complaints that the university discriminated against gay and lesbian employees in denying health care coverage to their same-sex domestic partners. The university is arguing that the Pittsburgh City Council had no authority to enact anti-discrimination protection for gay and lesbian citizens. In November, Pennsylvania passed a law that sought to exempt state and state-related universities from any local ordinance that might require them to provide same-sex benefits. Judge denies eval for 12-year-old who had sex with HIV+ man COLORADO SPRINGS (AP)-A 12-year-old boy will not have to undergo a psychiatric evaluation as part of an HIV-positive man's defense against an attempted manslaughter charge. Defense attorneys for Anthony Dembry, 32, contend the boy may be gay and initiated the sex that led to the charge. Dembry signed a confession admitting to sodomizing the boy Feb. 17. In his confession, Dembry said the boy "wanted me to make love to him, and I did." Dembry's defense attorney Pat Behan said a psychiatric evaluation would help jurors grasp the victim's mental state and provide insight into whether the sex was consensual. But Judge Thomas Kennedy denied that request Friday. "I don't want to try a 12- year-old boy in this courtroom when he is the victim," Kennedy said. Prosecutors charged Dembry with attempted manslaughter, claiming he knew of his HIV diagnosis at the time of the alleged assault Wyoming school allows anti-gay program as 'counterbalance' CASPER, Wyo. (APJ-A Casper College instructor who believes homosexuality is wrong will be allowed to give presentations on campus supporting his ideas, the Casper Star Tribune reported Dec. 13. Mike Keogh said his prospective program, "Anchor," will provide a counterbalance to the school's "Safe Zone" program. The school offers one-hour training Safe Zone sessions on a voluntary basis to college employees about two or three times a year. The proposed counterbalance to Safe Zone characterizes homosexuals as "sexual deviants" who may try to seduce others into a "homosexual lifestyle." It was presented to Casper College President Leroy Strausner in 1998. The college has agreed to allow Keogh, a photography instructor, to use campus facilities to present his views, although it does not endorse the program. "A college should be a bastion of thought," said Strausner. "People should disagree but without being disagreeable." Keogh said his anti- gay stance would not affect his relationships with those students in his classes who are gay or who oppose his views. -From staff and wire reports
