Transcript CONNECTIONS AMERICAN BOOKSELLERS ADOPT PRO-GAY RESOLUTION The American Booksellers Association, one of the largest trade organizations in the United States, has joined the growing list of businesses and organizations officially opposed to discrimination against gay people. In a 7 to 4 vote at the group's quarterly board meeting held in San Diego, the following resolution was adopted: The American Booksellers Association recognizes that there exist minorities not necessarily ethnic, which may be subject to discrimination. Be it therefore resolved that the Association urges upon its members and associate members, booksellers and publishers, to oppose discrimination in services to, and employment of, all individuals, regardless of ethnic or social class background and regardless of religion, gender, sexual orientation, age or physical handicap. Support for the Equal Rights Amendment was also affirmed in a second resolution passed by an identical 7-4 vote. Both resolutions were introduced in Chicago in June, 1980, at the association's annual membership meeting. At that time, the resolutions were tabled on advice of the group's legal counsel. The sexual orientation resolution was promoted by the Gay Caucus of Authors, Publishers and Booksellers. Charles Gillis, GCAPB member and owner of Houston's Wilde 'n' Stein Books, told CONNECTIONS that the resolution was not legally binding upon the ABA or member stores but would provide more awareness of gay issues within the publishing and bookselling industries .
