Transcript OCTOBER 17, 1986/MONTROSE VOICE 15 Letters to the Voice From the readers of the Montrose Voice ^Moved to Help Someone Else From Mrs. Christine Pope There is now a national campaign underway to help people with AIDS. I am a volunteer for this project—to help spread the word about the "Stamp Out AIDS" stamp project. ... Could you please (inform your readers) that this is an inexpensive way we can all have a part in this cause? I am touched by all the sadness AIDS has caused. It breaks my heart to hear and read about all the young people dying especially those dying without loved ones near and are often ostracized from family and friends. I am fortunate. My life has been blessed. I feel moved to help someone else. Thank you. ^Write the Voice Items in the "Letters" column are opinions of readers and not necessarily those of the Voice.

Gay Man Gets Life Insurance After Eight- Month Battle From a National Gay Rights Advocates press release North American Life and Casualty Company has been forced to reverse itself and accept an application for life insurance from a gay man. Edward Miller of San Diego was rejected by the Minnesota-based company because he named an "unrelated" male as his beneficiary. North American also cited an investigative report by the Hooper- Holmes investigative agency, which criticized Miller's poor morals for living with another man. National Gay Rights Advocates (NGRA), representing Miller, filed a formal discrimination complaint with the California Department of Insurance against both North American and Hooper Holmes. The Department ruled in favor of NGRA on both counts. "California law specifically prohibits life and health insurers from rejecting applicants because they are gay or lesbian," declared Benjamin Schatz, director of NGRA AIDS Civil Rights Project. "We're not going to let insurers get around these laws by using polite euphemisms about 'morals' or marital In Montrose, Nearly Everyone Reads the Voite status," he added. In addition to telling Miller that his lover (who is also his housemate and business partner) had "no insurable interest in his life," North American had also originally rejected his application because he would not submit to a blood test. They repeatedly refused to say what tests would be performed, responding only that Miller is in a high risk group for "blood disorders" because he is a single male between the ages of 20 and 50. Miller finally received his insurance in October—nearly eight months after he first applied. Un-Party Sunday 5pm till ?
