Words included as synonyms for "homosexual" included fag, faggot, fruit, homo, invert, queer, uranian and uranist. 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell' discharges highest since 1987 According to figures released in January, the military discharged 1,145 service members in 1998 for violating the DADT ban on openly gay soldiers, the highest number of discharges since 1987. Discharges from the Air Force were more than 30 percent higher than in 1997. 'Barebacking' on the rise, new epidemic feared A study released by the Centers for Disease Control showed the proportion of gay men who reported engaging in unprotected anal intercourse, known as barebacking, rose from 30.4 percent in 1994 to 39.2 percent in 1997, a near 30 percent increase. The report fueled fears that a new generation of gay men would be decimated by HIV/AIDS. February Tinky Winky outed by Jerry Falwell According to the February issue of Rev. jerry Falwell's National liberty Journal, Tinky Winky—a character on the popular "Teletubbies" television show—is gay and a dangerous role model for children. "He is purple—the gay pride color, and his antenna is shaped like a triangle—the gay pride symbol," the group said, also noting that Tinky speaks with a boy's voice but carries a red purse-like bag. March Billy Jock Gaither, an Alabama man who cared for his ailing parents, was stabbed, beaten to death with an ax handle and his body burned on a pyre of tires Feb. 19 by two men who claimed a pass by Gaither prompted the attack. Gay man brutally murdered in Alabama Steven Eric Mullins and Charles Monroe Butler confessed to the Feb. 19 murder of Billy Jack Gaither, a gay textile worker from Sylacauga Alabama. Gaither was stabbed, beaten to death with an ax handle, and his body burned on a pile of tires. Mullins told authorities he killed Gaither because Gaither made a pass at him. In June, Mullins pleaded guilty to capital murder; in August, a jury convicted Butler of murder and kidnapping. April Shepard killer gets life in prison Russell Henderson, one of two men charged with the October 1998 killing of gay University of Wyoming student Matthew Shepard, pleaded guilty to kidnapping and felony murder to avoid a possible death penalty. He was given to two consecutive life sentences. May San Francisco 'Equal Benefits' ordinance upheld A federal judge upheld important portions of San Francisco's landmark "Equal Benefits" ordinance, which requires companies that contract with the city to provide domestic partner benefits. In July, United Airlines, a plaintiff in the ATA suit, became the first airline to offer full domestic partner benefits, including health insurance. American Airlines and U.S. Airways quickly followed suit. June Hormel appointed ambassador to Luxembourg While Congress was on a 10-day break for Memorial Day, President Clinton offered a "recess appointment" to James Hormel, which will allow the openly gay philanthropist to serve as ambassador to Luxembourg until January 2001. Hormel, who became the United States' first openly gay ambassador, was first nominated to the post by Clinton in October 1997, but Republican senators opposed the nomination and refused to allow it to come to a vote. July Vatican shuts down ministry to gays In a move that rocked the already shaky relationship between gays and the Catholic Church, the Vatican's Congregation for the Doctrine of Faith ordered a well-known American nun and priest to halt their 25- year ministry to gay and lesbian Catholics. The Vatican had been investigating Father Robert Nugent and Sister Jeannine Grannick for more than 10 years. Senate passes gay-inclusive hate crimes bill Gay rights advocates declared victory July 22 when the U.S. Senate passed the Hate Crimes Prevention Act as an amendment to a spending bill. But because the House version of the budget bill did not include the measure, it required approval by a conference committee. In November, under pressure from Republican Congressional leaders, conferees and White House negotiators allowed the hate crimes bill to be dropped. The HCPA would add sexual orientation, gender and disability to existing federal hate crimes laws.
