Transcript New Law School Welcomes Gays NEWS BRIEFS DENVER POLICE AGREE TO END HARASSMENT Denver - Top police brass and attorneys for the Denver Gay Coalition have signed a court agreement which, if adhered to, may end two decades of open hostility between Denver vice squad officers and homosexuals. Among other items, the agreement calls for a stop to police harassment of homosexuals, equal enforcement of public indecency laws against all persons and appointment of a police "liason" officer to resolve misunderstandings between gays and police. The agreement, filed October 3 with the Denver District Court Judge Robert E. McLean, was the result of a massive lawsuit filed in June 1973 by the Gay Coalition against the city and its police officers. The lawsuit asked for a court order prohibiting the police from continuing an alleged "deliberate campaign of arrest, harassment and intimidation" of gay persons.

One purpose ofthe consultation is to publicize and support the work of the gay caucuses now functioning within 12 denominations. More information about the Task Force or the consultation can be obtained from Rev. William R. Johnson, executive director of the Council on Religion and the Homosexual, 83 McAllister, Suite 421, San Francisco, CA 94102.

LOS ANGELES CENTER GETS $1,182,000 (Los Angeles) The Gay Community Services Center of Los Angeles has been granted $1,182,000 from local, state and federal sources to fund six center projects. The largest, $1 million from the U.S. Department of Health, Education and Welfare, is for a Gay Women's Alcohol Recovery Program. Another $130,000 has been awarded by the Los Angeles County Health Department to extend the Center's successful veneral disease clinic. A $30,000 grant from the California Regional Medical Program will enable the Center to expand its medical services to treatment of general medical problems. A $12,000 grant from the L.A. Regional Family Planning Project is to be used in dealing with the problems unique to gay women and men who are involved in heterosexual marriages. Two other grants of $5,000 each are to go to the Center's drug and alcohol abuse program. GAY UNITED FUND FORMED FOR BOSTON (Boston) A Gay United Fund is being established for the Boston area by a group of individuals concerned about the lack of funds available to gay organizations and the amount of time that must presently be expended by individual organizations to raise operating revenues. Organizers of the fund, believed to be the first attempt at a federated gay fund raising and disbursement project in the nation, stressed that they would "seek out money from places where it's not coming from now — foundations, businesses, large scale benefits, and individuals," and would not compete for money that individual groups are already getting. TEXAS GAY UNITARIANS ORGANIZE Texas members of the first major church in the United States to support gay rights have organized Texas Unitarian- Universalist Gays to unite gay people within the Unitarian-Universalist Church. According to a statement from the group, T.U.U.G. is an affiliated member of the Continental Gay U-U Caucus. The Caucus worked within the church in Canada and the United States to help develop a church office to deal specifically with gay concerns and also guided the Unitarian-Universalists to publicly support gay rights, the first major church body to do so. Goals of the new Texas organization are "to reach other gay U-U's to create a sense of fellowship in Texas and to work within the church to further gay Unitarian-Universalists' place in the church." The group, headquartered in Austin, is a charter member of the Texas Gay Task Force and has worked closely with other gay groups in Austin and in the rest of the state. Members of the group have met with Austin church leadership and presented a forum service on being a gay Unitarian. T.U.U.G. urges all Texas gay Unitarian- Universalists (or others interested in liberal religion) to contact them by writing: T.U.U.G., c/o Den Milam, 2501 San Gabriel, No. 6, Austin TX 78705. DEFENSE FUND FORMED FOR LESBIAN MOTHERS The Lesbian Mother's National Defense Fund has been formed to provide legal help and financial support. The address for sending contributions or obtaining information is 1941 Division, Enumclaw, WA 98002. X / COMMUNITY NEWS j DECEMBER 74
