Transcript 20 GAY AUSTIN JULY 1978 KEWS BRIEFS continued from page 9 areas. A majority of the committee members supported a set of proposals that call homosexual acts "sinful." One such proposal counsels Presbyterians that "our present understanding of God's Will precludes the ordination of persons who do not repent of homosexual practice. " Yet another statement urged those in charge of reviewing candidates for the ministry not to make a specific inquiry into the "sexual orientation or practice" of a candidate who has not declared his or her sexual preference. The report also contained a condemnation of the "widespread contempt for homosexual persons that prevails in our society" and voiced strong support for laws upholding civil rights for homosexuals. However, while not ordaining declared homosexuals, the church will welcome "such persons" as members. NYC'S FIRST GAY COMMUNITY CENTER OPENS The first gay community center in New York City, to be called the Triangle Gay Community Center, was formally dedicated at ceremonies on June 24. Created by the Metropolitan Community Church of New York at its offices on the third floor of 26 Ninth Avenue, the space will house not only church activities but programs of the West Side Discussion Group, the Christopher Street Liberation Day Committee, units of Gay Over-eaters and Al- coholics Anonymous, therapy groups and rap groups of all kinds. GAY TEACHER REINSTATED IN NYC NEW YORK — Sallle Herson has been officially reinstated to a teaching position for the New York City School Board of Education. She had been released from her job as peer-group counselor at Walton High School in the Bronx in November of 1976, just days after sharing with students in a rap group discussion that she was a lesbian I After Hippy Hollow Hour s second annual 11/ ... ...^ i c at the s I Private GUar Sundays, 7pm 'til ? ?

CEUAitif Officials of the United Federation of Teachers and the Board of Education have issued statements in support of the employment rights of homosexual teachers. The issue in thi§ case was whether it is permissible for teachers to openly acknowledge, in the classroom, a homosexual lifestyle* With this decision, the Board has clarified its position. The initial incident took place in late October of 1976, The student initiated topic of homosexuality led to a frank conversation in which Ms. Herson shared with the students that she lived with another woman and their six children. With support from the Gay Teache s Association and the legal counsel of the New York Civil Liberties Union, Ms, Herson filed suit in federal court last August, charging abridgement of her constitutional rights by the NYC Board of Education, In response to this suit, the Board initiated an informal hearing procedure in October^ 1977. As a result, it was determined that Ms. Herson should be returned to a teaching position. Arrangements were recently completed and she is presently teaching in a junior high school, SEATTLE- IN TURMOIL OVKR ANTIDISCRIMINATION ORDINANCE Both SAve Our Moral Ethics (SOME), led by homophobic Seattle policeman David Eates, and gay rights supporters* Citizens to Retain Fair Employment (CRFE) are firing off volleys in the battle to repeal the city's anti-discriaination ordinance. SOME is attempting to collect 17,626 valid signatures by August 1 t^ put Initiative 13 on the November ballot. SOME's May 24 advertisement in an area newspaper headlined "Ten Reasons for Repealing Seattle's Homosexual Law," lists statements such as: "Homosexuals account for half the murders and suicides In large cities." "Half of the nation's syphlllls comes fr m homosexuals." "A great many homosexuals are classified as suicidal unemployables and therefore qualify for welfare, and are thus living off the American people." Protect America's Children, Anita Bryant's organization, has contributed $3,000 to SOME, while the Play- THE TUBS 50* Msjst-eth Strut
