Transcript HOUSTON VOICE www.houston voice.com r" JUNE 27, 2003 11 national news Ariz, governor bans anti-gay bias in state agencies PHOENIX — Arizona Gov. Janet Napolitano, a Democrat, signed an executive order June 21 barring state agencies from discriminating based on sexual orientation, the Arizona Republic reported. "To the people of Arizona, I say, 'Welcome to a new Arizona,'" Napolitano said, announcing the order at the Arizona Human Rights Fund dinner. "It's the right thing to do because it sends the message that we're going to value people on their workplace merit, and that's the beginning and the end, period." Officials with the Human Rights Fund, which lobbied for the measure, praised the move. "It's one more step forward for us in gaining the rights that everyone else takes for granted," said Kathie Gummere, Arizona Human Rights Fund public affairs director. But the Center for Arizona Policy called the order "an outrage." "If one governor can put it in, the next can rescind it," said Len Munsil, president of the conservative Christian group. Arizona Gov. Janet Napolitano said her order banning bias based on sexual orientation is 'the right thing to do' for state workers.

U.S. Attorney's Office and Susan Sommer from the Lambda Legal Defense Fund for their contributions to gay equality. The event, sponsored by Sen. Frank Lautenberg (D-N.J.), who did not attend, lasted for nearly two hours with speeches by DOJ Pride members and Rep. Barney Frank (D-Mass.), who is gay. Originally scheduled to be held in the Department of Justice's Great Hall, the event denied by the department earlier this month because the employee association, DOJ Pride, did not have an official presidential proclamation. In recent weeks, the department agreed to allow the event to go on as scheduled, but said the group would not receive any official sponsorship. DOJ Pride President Marina Colby took time out of the ceremony to honor those employees not present who might "fear retaliation for attending" such an event. About 150 people attended. Calif, high court limits judges' membership in Boy Scouts SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — California judges who are members of the Boy Scouts of America may have to disqualify themselves from hearing cases involving anti-gay discrimination, the state Supreme Court announced June 12. But the state's top court, which sets rules for California's 2,000-member judiciary, did not bar judges from being members of the Irving, Texas-based Boy Scouts, as several local bar associations requested. Under the new rule, judges would either have to step down or notify litigants in cases dealing with discrimination in the workplace against gays, and "any case involving gay adoptions or, cases in which the sexuality of the litigant is an issue," said Angela Bradstreet, the former San Francisco Bar Association president who urged the Supreme Court to alter its rules. Gregg Shields, the scouts' spokesperson, said the original proposal to ban scout membership by judges "would be inappropriate and unconstitutional." ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — Six months after Orlando passed an ordinance barring sexual orientation discrimination, a man filed the first complaint under the law alleging he was kicked out of a sports bar because he is gay. Roger Welch said a bartender at Players Sports Pub told him to leave Feb. 13 after Welch mentioned to another patron that he was gay. Welch said he refused to leave but the bartender called police and he was cited for trespassing. The city's human relations department was investigating the complaint, but wouldn't release any details. A manager at Players Sports Pub declined comment. The Orlando city council voted in December to add "sexual orientation" to the list of categories in the city's anti-discrimination protection law, which includes employment, housing and public accommodations. Soldier's mom continues fight against general's promotion WASHINGTON — Pat Kutteles, mother of slain Army Pfc. Barry Winchell, returned to Capitol Hill on June 17 to again lobby against Major General Robert Clark's promotion to lieutenant general, NBC Nightly News reported. Clark served as commander at Fort Campbell, Ky, in 1999 when Winchell was beaten to death in his barracks by fellow soldiers who believed he was gay because he had a transgendered girlfriend. An Army investigation found that Clark was not responsible for Winchell's death, but said soldiers at the base had not been properly trained on the military's "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy "If he's promoted, then everything that surrounded Barry's death and Barry himself didn't matter," Kutteles told NBC. Clark has declined interviews on the subject. He met with Winchell's parents last month, but Kutteles said he did not apologize and they remain upset that he did not attend their son's memorial service or contact them earlier. "How can you spend four years, four years and never once call on us, never acknowledge in a face-to-face meeting our child's death," she said.
