Transcript HOUSTON VOICE www.houstortvoice.com MARCH 18,2005 5 national news briefs Lesbian UPS worker wins sexual harassment suit SAN FRANCISCO — A jury last week awarded $63,000 to a lesbian former United Parcel Service worker in her lawsuit against the company, according to media reports. Kathy Hoskins, a 14-year UPS veteran, brought the hostile work environment sexual harassment suit against the firm after she allegedly was the subject of severe, widespread and continuing harassment that ultimately led to her wrongful termination, her attorneys contended, news outlets reported. A jury agreed that the harassment led to a hostile and abusive work environment, according to media reports. "The outcome of this case sends a clear message to UPS and the rest of corporate America that harassment based on gender stereotypes will not be tolerated," attorney Waukeen Q. McCoy of the Law Offices of Waukeen Q. McCoy, who represents Hoskins, told reporters. Hoskins alleged she was continu ally harassed because of her appearance, news reports indicate. "According to my former supervisor, I wasn't 'feminine' enough," Hoskins told reporters. Former UPS worker Kathy Hoskins, who alleged that she suffered workplace discrimination because she is a lesbian, was awarded $63,000 last week in her lawsuit against the company. (Photo courtesy of Fenton Communications) Judge bars group from using gay couple's photo in ad WASHINGTON (AP) — A federal judge last week prohibited a conservative group supporting President Bush's Social Security plan from using a photo of a gay couple in its online ads attacking the AARP. USA Next had posted the ad for a week in mid- February on the Web site of the American Spectator. The ad portrayed AARP the seniors lobby leading the opposition to Bush's plan, as opposed to U.S. soldiers and supportive of gay marriage. U.S. District Court Judge Reggie Walton issued a temporary restraining order forbidding use of tfcie photograph by USA Next. The Portland, Ore., couple, Richard Raymen and Steven Hansen, filed suit against USA Next, saying they hadn't consented "to serve as models for a homophobic and mean-spirited campaign for a political group with whose views they strongly disagree." The Internet ad showed a photo of a soldier with a red X over him and, next to it, a photo of two tuxedoed men kissing, with a green check mark over them. Sex-change surgery doesn't stop challenges for N.H. married pair PENACOOK, N.H. - Unusual challenges await a married Penacook couple whose case provides a unique angle to the samesex marriage debate, the Champlain Channel of WNNE-TV reported. Judi and Mikayla Howden met and married when Mikayla was Michael, before a sex-change operation that she says helped solve questions she had her entire life about her gender, the news station reported. "I came out of the closet as far as realizing myself and opening up to my family that I was a transsexual at about 37, 38," she said. Mikayla met Judi about 10 years later, and the pair married and have a child who is now 3, the news station reported. Mikayla's sex change operation later followed, according to WNNE-TV. But the couple now have a same-sex marriage, and officials told them they cannot change their marriage license. Family Pride Coalition's new director is Jacques' partner BOSTON, Mass. — Jennifer Chrisler, partner of former Human Rights Campaign President Cheryl Jacques, is the new executive director of the San Diego-based Family Pride Coalition, the Wellesley Townsman reported. Co-chairs of the coalition board of directors last week announced the selection of Chrisler to replace Aimee Galnaw, who led the group for four years, according to media reports. "As a married gay mother of twin boys, I am honored to be leading the Family Pride Coalition at such an important moment in our struggle for full equality for LGBT parents and their children," Chrisler said in a news release. West Point colonel issues call for end to military's ban on gays SANTA BARBARA, Calif. — In an opinion piece in the current Army Times, an active- duty U.S. Army colonel who also is a professor at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point calls for an end to the ban on gay service members, AScribe Newswire reported. In the piece, "Gays in the Military: It's a Question of Liberty," Col. Alien S. Bishop states, "The genius of democracy is in its insistence that each citizen counts ... But despite our government's claims of liberty for all, we leave homosexuals out. When we deny their right to military service, we improperly restrict the franchise of citizenship and give in to homophobic prejudice very like the unreasoned racial and gender prejudices of the past." Nathaniel Frank, senior research fellow at the Center for the Study of Sexual Minorities in the Military; a research institute at the University of California, Santa Barbara, said Bishop joins an increasing number of military leaders adopting this opinion, the Newswire reported. Bishop may be the highest-ranking active-duty officer so far to criticize the military's "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy, Frank added, according to news reports.
