May 24, 1981: Former Montrose jeweler killed Tom Cohen, returning from a trade fair to his office carrying two briefcases filled with gold jewelry and diamonds, was robbed and then shot to death. Cohen was known to the gay community as one of the operators of ETC., a jewelry boutique at Numbers in 1978 and 1979. He had also once operated the boutiques at Cuddle's and the Old Plantation discos, both gay. May 25, 1981: Roger Staubach was said to be fighting to "save children" from "smut TV" In the old Anita Bryant style, former Dallas pro footballer Roger Staubach was leading the fight against what he called "cableporn," reported Houston Chronicle columnist Ann Hodges. Staubach was said to have grouped homosexuality and "women being brutally molested" into the same category. May 26, 1981: City changed law so gay parade could follow traditional route Houston City Council amended its parade ordinance after pressure from gay community leaders who said that under the old version the Houston Gay Pride Week Parade would not be able to wind its way down its traditional route.

Only a few days before Easter, the Bishop of Strasbourg, Mgr. Leon-Arthur Elchinger, cancelled the agreement made to rent a Catholic hostel to the organizers, a move the organizers saw as the bishop's attempt to force a cancellation of the meeting. The organizers turned to France's new Socialist government for help and received the cooperation of top ministers. The Minister of the Interior, Gaston Def- ferre, called upon the Civil Defense, which sent a convoy from Paris, 300 miles away, to provide emergency tents and bedding for the delegates, while the Minister of Defense ordered supplies of Army blankets. Delegates joined local gay people in a candle-light protest outside the bishop's Easter service, handing out leaflets to the congregation. The IGA and the French organizers are now investigating other avenues of redress as well. The meeting itself covered some major issues to be considered in July at the international meeting to be held in Washington, D.C. These included: • Lesbian and Gay Year. A proposal is being considered to make 1983 the "International Year of Lesbians and Gay Men." Some of the suggestions include marches on the United Nations headquarters in Europe and New York. • Artificial Insemination. Members have been asked to find out the attitudes of their governments towards artificial insemination for unmarried women and lesbians and the use of gay men as donors. • Amnesty International. A major effort is to be made to persuade national Amnesty groups to support a motion at their international conference later this year to include lesbians and gay men as prisoners of conscience in cases where they are imprisoned because of their homosexuality. • Scotland. The Scottish Homosexual Rights group is prepared to challenge the age-of-consent laws for homosexuals in Scotland, through the European Court of Human Rights, when they get an approp riate case to use. • World Health Organization. IGA plans to step up its campaign to persuade WHO to delete homosexuality as an illness from the International Classification of Diseases, before 1985, the last time in a decade when changes can be made. Law students could turn bad grades into money Law students in the Canadian province of Ontario may soon be able to turn their bad grades into cash. Under the terms of a bequest left to the Law Society of Canada, $500 a year is to go to the student who graduates from the bar admissions course with the poorest marks, reports the Toronto Globe & Mail. In his will, lawyer Samuel Weir recommended that the prize winner use the money to "take his wife, husband, fiancee or serious female friend out for a gay evening." The late Mr. Weir explained the odd bequest by saying, "Many with very low standards at examinations have become illustrious members of the bar by keeping dark their lack of legal knowledge." The Law Society admits it's a bit perplexed. "Why should we be rewarding someone at the bottom of the class?" Asked the financial secretary. "You might get a lot of competition." Northern Ireland to change laws By Gavin Young International Gay News Agency BELFAST, N. Ireland—Northern Ireland Secretary James Prior announced recently that the laws prohibiting male homosexual acts are to be changed. The decision was brought about because the European Court of Human Rights ruled that Northern Ireland laws were contravention of human rights. The proposed alteration will create an age of consent of 21, bringing the laws into line with those in England, Scotland and Wales. However, Prior said that he did not expect the legislation to b_ introduced in this year's session of Parliament. Opposition has already been expressed by Ian Paisley's Democratic Unionist Party. Ban on gay teacher lifted by Gavin Young International Gay news Agency LONDON—The Inner London Education Authority has lifted a ban it had placed on a gay teacher, John Warburton, first imposed in 1974 following Warburton's refusal to abide by a direction that he not discuss homosexuality in the classroom. The situation arose when one of the teacher's pupils saw him at a gay rights demonstration and asked, "Sir, are you queer?" Warburton answered by explaining what it meant to be gay. He insisted that he should be able to reply when called a "queer" and hence refused to comply with the directive to keep silent on the subject. With the election of the pro-gay leftwing Greater London Council last year and a subsequent policy change, the ban was lifted. Warburton has agreed not to discuss homosexuality unless it is raised by a student.
