Transcript 2 The Star / Dec. 23,1983 Gay Leaders Meet with Glenn National Gay Task Force Executive Director Virginia M. Apuzzo; Peter Vogel, Co- Chair ofthe National Association of Gay and Lesbian Democratic Club; and six leaders of the New York City gay/lesbian community met Dec. 13 with Presidential contender Senator John Glenn (D.-Ohio), reports the NGTF newsletter. The meeting, arranged through the offices of Glenn's New York campaign chairman. State Senate Minority Leader Manfred Ohrenstein, came six weeks after the candidate had expressed his opposition to the federal gay/lesbian civil rights bill in response to a question from an NGTF representative at a New York forum. After the meeting, Apuzzo and Vogel asserted that Glenn "remainded intransigent" on issues of special concern to the lesbian/gay community. The meeting, which lasted for over an hour, did not center around the civil rights bill as a "litmus test," but rather addressed a broad spectrum of issues especially important to lesbians and gay men, including immigration, AIDS, violence, social service delivery and discrimination against gays and lesbians in the military. The group also challenged Glenn's contention, made earlier in the day, that lesbians and gay men were unfit to work as "teachers or YMCA directors." While the dialogue was cordial, theOhio senator continually focused on the idea of sexual orientation as a choice rather than a pre-existing condition like race or gender. "The Senator acknowledged the existence of discrimination," Apuzzo noted, "but was unwilling to support any remedy for that discrimination. This intransigence is unacceptable." Vogel added, "He offered no new departures from his previous positions." Glenn himself stressed that he wanted a "continuing dialogue with the gay and lesbian community." and conceded that "this issue (gay and lesbian civil rights) has become an item on the national agenda." On Dec. 15, State Senator Ohrenstein announced his resignation from the Glenn campaign. Ohrenstein's district includes one of the largest gay and lesbian constituencies in the nation.

Governor Bans Gay Discrimination in Government By Kathy Tepes Via Gay Press Association Wire Service On Nov. 18, New York Gov. Cuomo issued an executive order banning discrimination against lesbians and gays in state government. The executive order, which bans discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation or preference, applies to both hiring and the delivery of servies by all New York State agencies. Governor Cuomo also set up a high-level task force to enforce the order. Unlike a similar order issued by Mayor Koch in New York City, the governor's order does not ban discrimination by contractors and vendors doing business with the state. However, Cuomo said the new task force could recommend whether to extend the order to business with the New York State. Issuing the executive order was one of the campaign promises made to the lesbian and gay community in New York State. On May 16, at the Fund for Human Dignity dinner. Governor Cuomo publicly acknowledged that lesbians and gays played a significant role in electing him governor. At that time, Cuomo addressed lesbians and gays directly by saying: "Thank you, to all of you. I'm encouraging you to stay strong in the pursuit of the things you believe. As long as I am governor, I will fight for a government intelligent enough and brave enough not to insist on uniformity." .As secretary of state, Cuomo issued the first directive in the New York State's history barring discrimination based on sexual orientation or preference in the area of licensing and bonding. He also issued an order making it illegal to discriminate against gay organizations who wished to incorporate. Despite those firsts. Governor Cuomo angered most of the activists in the lesbian and gay community by delaying the executive order almost a year. It wasn't until after Governor Cuomo was deluged with letters deploring his delay, an appeal launched by the gay newspaper New York City News, that he agreed to a meeting with a group of gay activists and non-gay, but liberal religious leaders. The antidiscrimination order was strongly opposed by conservative religious groups, who argued it would encourage homosexuality. Recently, the court struck down the sodomy laws in New York State, due to the efforts of the Lambda Legal Defense and Education Fund. Convicted Killer Dan White to be Paroled International Gay News Agency SAN FRANCISCO—Convicted double- murderer Dan White will be released from Soledad Prison on January 6 after having served a little over five years for the murderB of San Francisco Mayor George Moscone and gay Supervisor Harvey Milk. The parole plan submitted by White to prison authorities is likely to be approved. According to Susan Sward of the San Francisco Chronicle, the plan calls for White to be released in the San Diego County area, an area with a large population, much of it conservative. Speculation that White might be released in the San Francisco Bay Area was dismissed by authorities, who indicated that White had too much to fear from those angry at the lenient sentence he received for two murders. When White killed Moscone and Milk in 1978, he set in motion the removal of two of the most liberal members of city government and opened the way for their replacement by more conservative members of government, a trend that continues unto the present.
