Page 20 TX Senate passes DOMA Measure that activists call 'slap in the face' to gay Texans next up for a House vote By PENNY WEAVER A Texas Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) is close to becoming law after receiving Senate approval this week. The full Texas Senate passed Senate Bill 7 on Tuesday, and the proposal now goes to the Texas House of Representatives. The measure would prohibit the state from recognizing same-sex civil unions or marriages performed in other states. "It's nothing more than a slap in the face to the LGBT community of this state," said Randall Ellis, executive director of the Lesbian/Gay Rights Lobby of Texas (LGRL). "The passage of DOIVIA by the Texas Senate illustrates a fact that gays and lesbians know all too well: Texas discriminates. "Gays and lesbians are denied literally Sen. Jeff WentwottJi (left), R-San Antonio, said his Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) bill — approved by the full Senate on Tuesday — is designed to 'encourage and protect' traditional marriage between one man and one woman. One senator argued that Wentworth's DOMA bill is unnecessary, pointing out that Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott (right) recently said that current Texas law does not recognize civil unions issued in any jurisdiction. hundreds upon hundreds of rights and privileges — everything from tax exemptions to hospital visitation rights," Ellis added. Originally filed as S.B. 630, the measure was re-filed by Sen. Jeff Wentworth, R-San Antonio, at the request of Lt. Gov.

"Middlesex" by Jeffrey Eugenides, which follows a family across eight generations through the eyes of an intersexed narrator, won the 2003 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction. The Boston Globe won the award for Public Service Journalism for its coverage of last year's Catholic priest sexual abuse scandal. "Middlesex" tells the story of a Greek- American family from the perspective of a protagonist first called Callie, then called Cal, who has genitals of both sexes, was raised as a girl and later identifies as male. "I take things that are a little bit freaky, and I de-freak them," Eugenides told National Public Radio. "This story, when you read it, becoming a hermaphrodite is not something that we all don't experience. It's really closer to what everyone feels in puberty and what everybody feels growing up. It's sort of a symbolic story for... an experience that is very common to all of us." Eugenides, a heterosexual biological male, is also a National Book Critics Circle Finalist and a Transgendered Fiction Finalist for the Lambda Literary Awards, which focuses recognition each year on books with gay or transgender subject matter. The "Lammys" are scheduled to be awarded May 29 in Los Angeles. The Boston Globe won its Pulitzer for "courageous, comprehensive coverage of sexual abuse by priests, an effort that piereced secrecy, stirred local, national and international reaction and produced changes in the Roman Catholic Church," according to a statement from the Pulitzer board.
