The Nation Federal appeals court knocks down sexuality as factor in awarding citizenship RICHMOND, Va.—A West German native who was denied U.S. citizenship based on his homosexuality should now be granted that citizenship, ruled the Fourth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals April 27, news services reported. According to UPI, the court said U.S. District Judge Oren Lewis had erred in refusing to give citizenship rights to Horst Nemetz, who was operating a hair- styling salon in nearby Springfield, Va. • Lewis had earlier ruled that Nemetz had not established "good moral character," stated AP. Nemetz, 41, who came to the United States in 1967 and applied for U.S. citizenship nine years later, UPI said, testified that he had been living with an American man he met six weeks after his arrival and that the two of them had a relationship as lovers. - A hearing examiner of the U.S. Immigration and Naturalization Service rejected Nemetz' application for citizenship in January, 1980, reported AP. The news service said that the INS stated that Nemetz had "failed to demonstrate that he is a person of good moral character due to his admission of the acts of sodomy." Sodomy is illegal according to Virginia law. The appeals court said however that Lewis should not have used state law in making a decision, saying it believed Congress "did not intend purely private sexual activities to act as an absolute bar to a finding of good moral character," reported AP. "Nemetz's homosexual activity cannot serve as the basis for a denial of a finding of good moral character because it has been purely private, consensual and without harm to the public," UPI quoted the three-judge appeals panel. Continuing: "The record indicates that Nemetz in all respects sustained his burden of proving good moral character. He testified that he has been steadily employed and earning a good income since his entry into the United States, and he submitted affidavits of witnesses that he had been a good businessman and friend." Richard Murray, Nemetz's attorney, was reported as saying his client is "delighted" with the decision. But Nemetz is "tempering his joy" because of the possibility that the decision may be appealed to the U.S. Supreme Court, Murray was quoted. UPI said it was initially unable to get a comment from Justice Department attorney Margaret Perry. Second annual GayRun' set for July 26 SAN FRANCISCO—A foot race hoping to attract national gay participation will be held July 26 in San Francisco's Golden Gate Park, organizers of the event announced. Titled "GayRun '81," it was organized by The Advocate, a national gay newsmagazine, and Frontrunners, a San Francisco gay running club. The event was first held last year and, according to race director Scott Anderson, "Response to last year's race was universally favorable. We expect to attract an even larger and more diverse field this year." The organizers said nearly 500 runners from ten states and three countries competed in GayRun '80. Frontrunners president Jim Milton emphasized that the race is open to everyone. "Last year's event was very successful in creating good feelings within the gay and straight running communities," he said. First prize for the winner of the race (to be determined by a drawing among the division winners) will be a week's cruise for two in the Caribbean, they said. Entry blanks will appear in The Advocate or can be obtained by writing GayRun '81, 1730 S. Amphlett, suite 225, San Mateo, CA 94402, they said. 'Dynasty' relying on gay theme to pull ratings The theme of ABC's Dynasty, the network's answer to CBS' Dallas, a continuing prime-time soap-opera-type drama, in recent weeks revolved around the trial of the star of show, who is accused of murdering his son's gay lover. In the script, the star, who is immensely rich and the leading citizen in the community, came home one evening and found his sou embraced in the arms of the son's lover. Reacting with rage—the prosecuting attorney called it homophobia—he struck his son's lover, who then was killed, and here's where the prosecution and defense disagreed. The defense claimed the blow, not sufficiently hard enough to kill, caused the lover to fall backwards, hitting his head on an object on the floor, killing him. The defense further maintained that the star's action was reasonable, saying the lover was trying to seduce his son. The trial is set to continue this week on Monday night at 8:00 p.m. on channel 13.
