Transcript HOUSTON VOICE • DECEMBER 31,1999 OUT ON THE BAYOU 21 August New Jersey Supreme Court rules against Boy Scouts The Boy Scouts ban on gays is illegal under state law, the New Jersey Supreme Court ruled Aug. 4 in the case of James Dale, an assistant scout master who was kicked out nine years ago after leaders learned he is gay. In May, the Boy Scouts formed a committee to study the causes of homosexuality. September Democratic candidates come out on gay rights Vice President Al Gore and former Sen. Bill Bradley, the two candidates vying for the Democratic presidential nomination in 2000, came out as strong proponents of gay rights in dueling interviews with the gay news magazine, the Advocate. First, Gore told the magazine he favored a more "compassionate" implementation of the "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" ban on open gays in the military. Then, Bradley told the Advocate he would overturn the military ban completely. Both men opposed gay marriage, but Bradley said he supported domestic partnership and would oppose the Knight Initiative, a California ballot measure to limit marriage to "one man and one woman." Gore later said he too would oppose the Knight Initiative. Drug-resistant HIV on the rise Highly drug-resistant strains of the AIDS virus are on the rise, showing up in as many as 4.5 percent of newly infected patients, according to two studies in the journal of the American Medical Association. While powerful "drug cocktails" including protease inhibitors have helped many with HIV, the complicated drug regimen has proved difficult to adhere to. Anti-gay harassment 'the rule' at school A first-ever national survey conducted by the Gay Lesbian Straight Education Network found that 69 percent of gay students surveyed around the country said they had experienced verbal, physical and sexual harassment and assault at school. Results show 61 percent reported verbal harassment, 47 percent sexual harassment, 28 percent physical harassment, and 14 percent had been physically assaulted. October Calif, governor signs landmark gay rights bills California Gov. Gray Davis signed into law three landmark gay rights measures passed by the state legislature, including a measure to outlaw the harassment of gay students and teachers in public schools and colleges, a law creating a statewide domestic partners registry for couples who are gay or over age 62, and legislation to ban job and housing discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation. Falwell meets with gay Christians Rev. Jerry Falwell, the Moral Majority founder long known for his condemnation of homosexuality, held a weekend meeting with 200 gays from 30 states organized by Rev. Mel White's non-violent "Soul Force" movement. White, a former ghostwriter for Falwell and other religious right figures before coming out himself, organized the meeting with his former boss and his church members to try and reduce violence against gays and Christians and lower the rhetoric between both groups. November Gay S.F. supervisor forces mayor into run-off On the strength of only a write-in campaign launched just 20 days before the election, Tom Ammiano, the openly gay president of San Francisco's Board of Supervisors, shocked many by qualifying for a run-off in the city's mayoral election against incumbent Mayor Willie Brown. The contest, between the openly gay Ammiano and strong gay rights ally Brown, divided some in San Francisco's huge gay community, but Brown beat Ammiano decisively in the December run-off vote. Ammiano would have become the first openly gay mayor of a major American city. ^■Meei James Hormel finally became the United States' first openly „ H gay ambassador in jfl June, three years ''^B after he was first '' ^EK nominated. December Bradley, Gore, Clintons oppose 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell' Politicians continued lining up against the military's "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" ban on openly gay service members, prompted in part by the July murder of a gay soldier at the Army base in Fort Campbell, Ky. Former Sen. Bill Bradley, running for the Democratic presidential nomination, led the pack in September. In December, First Lady Hillary Clinton—planning a run for U.S. Senate from New York—joined him in declaring DADT a failure that ought to be scrapped. President Clinton was next. Finally, Gore said he, too, would overturn DADT. Hawaii court rules against gay marriage Hawaii's Supreme Court upheld a 1998 constitutional amendment against gay marriage, closing the door on three gay couples who had sued the state for the right to marry. But gay rights activists said the ruling does not reverse the high court's 1993 that failure to recognize same-sex marriage amounts to gender discrimination. Gay couples win 'equal' rights in Vermont In a first of its kind decision, the Vermont Supreme Court ruled that gay couples must be given "equal" rights and benefits. The court stopped short of calling for the state to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples, holding that the state legislature should decide whether to grant the benefits through marriage or a separate system of domestic partnership. Vermont officials, including Gov. Howard Dean, predicted the state would adopt a DP system faMlj As hfaffUfefa fa w Pet Care Expert Grooming & Attentive Boarding Under New Ownership!
