Transcript 6 april 1979 Gay Austin vol. 3. no. Gay Couple Sues INS LOS ANGELES - A gay couple claiming to be legally married has filed suit against the Immigration and Naturalization Service to prevent deportation of one of the partners. The suit, filed in U.S. District Court by American Civil Liberties Union lawyers, results from the INS's refusal to grant preferential resident alien visa to Anthony Sullivan, an Australian citizen, as the spouse of Richard Adams, a citizen of this country. In its initial decision, the INS told the pair, "You have failed to establish that a bona fide marital relation- Brazilian Press Supports Lampiao SAO PAOLO, BRAZIL - The Brazilian Press Association, the journalists' union, and a number of artistic and cultural groups have rallied to the defense of Lampiao, Brazil's first serious gay publication, since the Brazilian military dictatorship issued subpoenas against the paper's editorial collective last September (see Gay Austin, March 1979.) A coalition called the Permanent Commission for the Defense of Freedom of Expression characterized the subpoenas and other government threats against the paper as "one more attack on freedom of expression" and called charges of "offending morality and propriety" a "subterfuge for censorship." The legal action against the paper is based on the Press Law passed by the military government when it took power in 1964. Journalists for at least four non-gay publications who have written articles on homosexuality are also currently under investigation for alleged violations of the same provisions of the law.V 2828 RIO GRANOE/AUSTIN 478-0224 ENTRANCE IN REAR ship can exist between two faggots." A later ruling claimed a gay male spouse "cannot function as a wife by assuming female duties and obligations inherent in the marital relationship." The lawsuit claims the INS decision violates constitutional guarantees of equal protection. The ruling is at least the second instance of discrimination against homosexuals since the INS told representatives of the National Gay Task Force last year that they would end the practice. (See Gay Austin, March, 1979.)V Gay Couple Adopts Child SAN FRANCISCO - For what is believed to be the first time in history, a court has granted an openly gay couple the right to adopt a child. On January 12 a Los Angeles Superior Court judge approved the adoption of 23-month- old Robert David by Reverend Jim Dykes of the Metropolitan Community Church and his spouse, Albert Lanny Dykes, a physician. Since there is no legal recognition of gay couples under California law. Dr. Dykes is the official parent while Rev. Dykes is the child's guardian. It is officially considered a single- parent adoption.^ Youth Counselor Acquitted HOUSTON - A former counselor for a half-way house for runaways in Houston was found not guilty of sexual misconduct after the alleged victim, who was also the state's chief witness, admitted he had lied in a similar trial against another counselor at the same half-way house last December. The 16-year-old youth told the jury police had grilled and rehearsed him before his testimony in the earlier trial, which also resulted in acquittal. The two trials resulted from a statement made by the youth during an investigation by what is known locally as the "chicken-hawk squad" of the Houston Police Department. Two other counselors from the half-way house who were also charged have not yet been brought to trial. Assistant District Attorney Brian ilains, who admits he knew of the perjury, refused to explain his prosecuting the second defendant. Defense attorney Larry Watts accused the District Attorney's office of "knowing use of perjured testimony in violation of the canon of ethics." The defendant in the first trial claims police offered him a deal in exchange for his testifying to sexual offenses on the part of a prominent Houston attorney with whom he is acquainted. V Lesbian Relationship Grounds for Alimony Cut ST. PAUL, MINNESOTA - A Minnesota District Court judge has ruled that a woman's stable lesbian relationship is sufficient grounds for the termination of alimony payments from her ex-husband. After a divorce agreement made in 1972 which required alimony "until such time as she remarries or dies," the ex-husband took the woman to court to stop alimony when he discovered she was involved Arson Suspected in Gay Commune Fire WOLF CREEK, OREGON - Arson is suspected in the fire which destroyed the farmhouse of a small commune of gay men here last January 12. The commune, at which the gay men's journal RFD was published until recently, has been the target of harassment and vandalism for the past year and last fall townspeople expressed concern when two boys, aged three and seven, moved to the farm to be raised there. The local sheriff found two unused Molotov cocktails and an empty gasoline can near the site of the fire. There were no injuries but damage was estimated at $30,000. No arrests are expected.V in a relationship with another woman. Although it is not believed the decision will establish important legal precedent, Jean O'Leary of the National Gay Task Force considers it significant. "I think the judge is right," O'Leary said. "If this is a stable relationship, it certainly is the equivalent of a marriage situation ... We could solve all these problems just by legalizing homosexual marriages." V TV Evangelist Dropped for Anti-Gay Sermon DALLAS - Dallas television station WFAA - TV has discontinued its weekly broadcasts by evangelist James Robison because of a sermon he delivered in late February in which he called the gay movement "despicable" and "a perversion ofthe highest order." Station manager David Lane said he believed the sermon violated the Federal Communications Commission's Fairness Doctrine. "I should be able to say what's in my head and in the Bible," Robison said. "I'll always preach that homosexuality is a sin." V Demonstators Attacked NEW YORK - A group of 50 gay and lesbian demonstrators at the office of a Queens City Councillor was attacked by several dozen teenagers who threw eggs, fruit, and bottles at them and yelled, "Get out of our neighborhood" and "Castrate gay men." Witnesses say the eight or ten police on the scene escorted demonstrators to safety when they had finished, but made no attempt to stop the attack. Joyce Hunter, a member of Lesbians Rising, said, "In all the years I've been demonstration, I've never encountered anything as vicious as this ... It was really dangerous." She said the demonstrators "didn't expect a niee crowd, but we didn't expect the violence either. The police encouraged then behavior, but we kept our cool." The demonstration was organized by the Coalition for Lesbian and Gay Rights against Queens City Councillor Thomas J. Manton for his consistent opposition to gay rights. Hunter says the activists will return. "We have to demonstrate in the area again because many of us live in the district," she said.V JBII II I III llli II THE SflUJLIOI BOOISTORE AUSTIN.TEKAS Wot Oe gatpeJ, #udtke®<*t"
