Transcript HOUSTON VOICE • JANUARY 14, 2000 NEWS Around the Nation CDC: Number of black, Hispanic gay men with AIDS passes whites AI I.ANTA (AP)—For the first time since AIDS arrested the nation's attention in the early 1980s, more black and Hispanic gay men are living with the disease than are white gay men. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported Thursday that minorities represent 52 percent of the gay and bisexual men who had AIDS in 1998, up from 31 percent in 1989. Black men made up one-third of the cases, while Hispanics represented 18 percent of them. Researchers said the report suggests that the stigma of homosexuality plays a role in spreading the disease because blacks and Hispanics are less likely than whites to identify themselves as gay or seek AIDS prevention and treatment services. "People have totally ignored the consistent fact that gay men of color have always been the largest single risk category for men ... and this issue is never talked about," said Dr. HeleneCiavIe, director of the CDC's national center for prevention of 11IV, sexually transmitted diseases and tuberculosis. Gayie said trends identified several years ago led researchers to project that the number of nonwhite gay men with AIDS would surpass whites, but the increase happened faster than expected. Plea agreement reached in gay soldier's death on Kentucky base FORT CAMPBELL, Ky—Army Spc. Justin R. Fisher, 26, was sentenced to 12 1 /2 years in prison on Jan. 8 in the beating death of a barracks mate who had been rumored to be gay. Fisher admitted he lied to military investigators and obstructed the investigation when he wiped blood from a baseball bat that Pvt. Calvin Glover used to kill Pfc. Barry Winchell, who had been sleeping. Under a plea agreement, the Army dropped other charges. Fisher's court martial trial had been scheduled to start last Saturday. Winchell, 21, was killed while he slept in his cot at Fort Campbell. Glover, 19, of Sulphur, Okla., was convicted of premeditated murder ..md sentenced to life in prison and prosecutors said he was driven by hatred of homosexuals. In the wake of the plea agreement, Pat and Wally Kutteles, Winchell's mother and stepfather told the Washington Post they are considering suing the Army for tailing to protect their son. On Monday, Army officials said they will investigate alleged anti- gay actions at Fort Campbell, Ky, during the period leading up to Winchell's murder. Supreme Court allows insurers to set AIDS coverage limits WASl IINCTON (AP)—The Supreme Court, rejecting allegations of illegal bias, let an insurance company provide less health care coverage for AlDS-related illnesses than for other conditions under the same policy. Two Chicago-area men bought health care policies from Mutual of Omaha with a $1 million maximum benefit for noiv A IDS-related conditions, but a much smaller limit forAIDS-related illnesses. The men charged in their suit that such limits violated the federal Americans With Disabilities Act. A federal judge in Chicago ruled for the two men in 1998, but the 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals reversed that ruling. Mutual of Omaha did not refuse to sell insurance to people infected with HIV, the appeals court said, but instead made a coverage decision similar to a furniture store deciding not to sell wheelchairs. Lawyers for the two men told the justices that the limit on AIDS coverage "presents a classic case of disability-based discrimination.'' The court turned down the appeal Jan. 10 without comment. Gay Dallas attorney announces long-shot run for U.S. Senate DAI LAS—Bobby Wightman-C ervantes will join four other little-known candidates in the March 14 1 )emocratic primary for the opportunity to face Republican Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison in the November general election. "The chances of me wanning [the primary] are very good," Wightman-C er\antes told the Dallas Voice. "At least I have two target groups [of voters), gays ^n^ Hispanics." Wightman-Cervantes said the reason he decided to enter the race was so a 1 lispanic would lead Hi state ticket in the general election. Wightman-Cervantes ran unsuccessfully in the 1998 Republican primary seeking a state District Judge position in Dallas County I lutchison is expected to be a prohibitive favorite for reelection, whoever wins the Democratic primary Utah education board quietly bans anti-gay bias SAL I IAKE CITY—With so little fanfare that even gay rights advocates didn't know about it, Utah has |oined only eight other states in banning anti-gay discrimination by school personnel, the Washington Blade reported Jan. 7. Utah's Board of Education approved the change in its ethical code last May, but activists did not find out until November when it came to light during a court hearing on a lawsuit seeking to guarantee the right of public school students to form gay- straight alliances. The Utah code change added sexual orientation to the list of categories on which teachers, administrators, and other school personnel are barred from discriminating against students or co-workers. —From staff and wire reports Spc. Justin R. Fisher may be eligible for parole after four years under a plea agreement he reached over his participation in the killing of Pfc. Barry Winchell.
