Jones Hall 713-227-ARTS Continental Airlines Gay man sues Maryland to overturn oral sex ban BALTIMORE (AP|—Larry Jacobs is one of seven plaintiffs in a lawsuit that seeks to overturn a Maryland law banning oral sex between homosexuals. While he's never been prosecuted under the law, the openly gay Rockville attorney said Feb. 5 he fears grave repercussions if anyone makes an issue of his sexual orientation. It 1 were convicted of a crime like that, 1 could lose my license," he said. The /unerican Civil Liberties Union filed the suit, which aims lo overturn the law that makes oral sex between people of thc same gender a felony " punishable by 10 years prison and a SI.000 fine. The suit claimes the 1916 law is unconstilu- t i o n a 1 because il (doesn't Larry Jacobs apply to straight couples. That kind of open season on gays and lesbians has got to stop." said Susan Goering, executive director of the ACLU state chapter. While only a few people have been arrested under the statute, it has been used to discriminate against gays and lesbians in other ways, the ACLU said. Critics of the law say it gives prejudiced people another reason to intensify their haired of homosexuals. "We're talking about a 10-year felony. It's serious." said Susan Silber. a Takoma Park attorney who belongs io Free State Justice Campaign, which seeks equal rights for homosexuals and transsexuals. Lawmakers in thc past have introduced bills to change the law. but the bills have never made il oul ol the 1 louse .Judiciary Committee. Cinn. activists lose court bid on gay rights law CINCINNATI (API—A federal appeals courl last week left intact a ruling that upholds Cincinnati's 1993 charter amendment that forbids the city to enact or enforce any pro-gay laws. Gay rights activists say they intend to take the case to thc U.S. Supreme Court. Voters approved Cincinnati's charter amendment by a nearly 2-to-1 ratio. But opponents argue that it cannot stand because it is identical to a statewide referendum in Colorado that the U.S. Supreme Court rejected by a 6-3 vote in 1996. Appeals Judge Danny Boggs. supporting the 6th Circuit's decision not to rehear the case, wrote that tin- Colorado case is nol applicable to the Cincinnati issue. But the dissenting judges, including Chief Judge Boyce Martin Jr.. said Ihey think the Supreme Court's Colorado ruling should apply. They said the majority's decision "draws distinctions without a difference," Cincinnati's amendment has never been implemented because it was immediately challenged and has been on hold during the court battle.

They've told them lo clean up around their buildings, lo make sure things aren't just lying around," said David White. Birmingham coordinalor of the Gay and Lesbian Alliance ol Alabama. "The main thing is. since Birmingham is more of a close-knit community, in be more aware of people they don'l know." Gainesville, Fla., passes pro-gay ordinance GAINESVILLE. Fla.
