Lindsley June 6 ordered Denease Conley to pay $100-a- month support to Sherry D. Richardson. Before the two women participated in a Holy Union ceremony at the Metropolitan Community Church in February, they had signed an agreement that Richardson would perform the duties of a "wife," while Conley would provide finan- c ial support. After the relationship terminated recently, Richardson, who said she had given up her }ob in New York to be with Conley. filed suit for support and the division of property acquired by the couple during their relationship. Conley, who was not represented by counsel, agreed in court to the support agreement, which will continue indefinitely unless it is modified by the court or another judicial procedure. Judge L ndsley accepted the couple s agreement on the basis of the Marvin-Triola decision in which the California Supreme Court ruled that there can be property and support agreements and obligations between unmarried people. That case involved actor Lee Marvin and his common law wife. The Conley-Richardson case appears to be the first gay couple test case of that precedent. French Cuisine, Courtyard, & Bar.

The event, sponsored by the New Alliance for Gay Equality (New AGE) of Los Angeles, raised an estimated $70,000. At two performances marking the first anniversary of the defeat of gay rights in Dade County (Florida), the crnwds, moved to tears, offered standing ovations. Nearly half the audience consisted of women, a first for any gay rights fundraising event. All four performers donated their talents to the successful concert. The evening's only jarring moment came between shows when a bomb threat was announced, and the second show had to be delayed for 45 minutes. Two law suits are underway challenging the so-called Briggs initiative, which would require the firing of gay educators and those who "advocate" the gay lifestyle. Filing its suit soon after the California secretary of state announced that the Briggs initiative had enough valid signatures to qualify for the November ballot, Cay Rights Advocates challenged the initiative on behalf of the California Federation of Teachers. Gay Rights Advocates charges that the initiative unconstitutionally violates protections of due process, equal protection, privacy and free expression. The suit also charges that if the initiative is allowed on the ballot, it would have a chilling effect on teachers' first amendment rights to speak against it because, under the initiative's advocacy provisions, they might be subject to termination from employment should the initiative pass. The Universal Fellowship of Metropolitan Community Churches (MCC), represented by attorney John E Wall, also filed suit in an attempt to have the Briggs initiative removed from the ballot. The MCC suit claims that the initiative, should it become law, violates separation of church and state principles. Theoretically, gay teachers who wanted to keep their jobs would be forced to avoid attending MCC services because they might be identified as gay and therefore fired from their jobs. This, contends MCC, violates their right of religious freedom, PRESBYTERIANS VOTE T REFUSE ORDINATION TC PRACTICING HOMOSEXUALS SAN DIEGO -- After extensive committed debate, the full session of the General Assembly of the United Presbyterian Church voted not to ordain practicing homosexuals as ministers in their church. Delegates from the assembly claim this action followed years of study concerning social, psychological, as well as religious aspects of homosexuality, and previous to the vote, found themselves sharply divided as to the matter of ordination. A church committee issued two reports that disagreed on the ordination question but concurred in several key news briefs continued on ca^e 20
