In Houston, 16 gay and lesbian couples, to protest the Texas ban on same-sex unions, lined up at the county clerk's office and were denied marriage licenses, the Houston Chronicle reported. (Jay couples across Texas and the entire United States also stood in line for licenses to protest the ban on same-sex unions. In Columbus, Ohio, a half-dozen gay couples joined the protest, the Associated Press reported. As expected, they were turned away when they requested marriage licenses. Couples in Columbia, S.C, Minneapolis and San Francisco also joined the protest, the Associated Press reported. Last week marked National Freedom to Marry Week for gay civil rights advocates. Others protested the move by gay Americans. In Houston, Aubrey Vaughn, pastor of Grace Baptist Church, said he opposes gay marriage because "the Bible is against it and God is against it," the Chronicle reported. Charles Lee, the grand dragon of a faction of the Ku Klux Klan, was one of a handful of protesters who heckled gay couples as they gathered outside the Harris County clerk's office in Houston on Feb. 13. (Photo by Pat Sullivan/AP) N.Y. to grant same-sex unemployment benefits ALBANY, N.Y. - The New York State Department of Labor agreed last week to change policies that will recognize samesex relationships in determining eligibility for unemployment insurance. The decision came in response to a case brought by the American Civil Liberties Union, representing a lesbian who was denied unemployment benefits because she left her job to be with her same-sex partner. "We are very pleased that the Department of Labor has recognized that same-sex couples in committed relationships should not be discriminated against in unemployment insurance simply because they are not allowed to marry their partners," said James Esseks, litigation director for the ACLU's Lesbian & Gay Rights Project. HRC study indicates gays eager to vote in 2004 WASHINGTON, D.C. - A Harris Interactive poll done on behalf of the Human Rights Campaign Foundation suggests that gay Americans consider gay rights one of the top issues for the 2004 presidential campaign and 76 percent say they are "absolutely certain" to vote in 2004. "This research confirms that gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender Americans are highly engaged in the political process," HRC President Cheryl Jacques said in a statement. HRC officials expressed surprise at some of the poll's findings. For example, more than half of those polled said they believe civil unions are the same as marriage and 21 percent believe gay couples can get married in the United States. "This is emphatically not true, and is troubling information," HRC's education director Kim I. Mills said. "We need to do a better job of getting the word out that only marriage — not civil unions or legal documents — can confer more than 1,000 federal benefits, such as Social Security survivor benefits, equitable inheritance taxes, the right to roll over your partner's 401(k) and so much more." Tenn. appeals court agrees to reconsider gay father ruling NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - A state appeals court has agreed to reconsider a lower court order barring a gay father from "exposing" his son to "his gay lifestyle." The Court of Appeals granted the American Civil Liberties Union's petition for a partial rehearing of the case of Joseph Randolph Hogue. "We are very pleased that the appeals court has agreed to reconsider its decision," said Hedy Weinberg, executive director of the ACLU of Tennessee. "Courts have no business putting gay parents in the position of having to choose between raising their children and having a loving, committed relationship with their partners." The case began when Cher Lynn Hogue filed for divorce in February 2002. As part of a divorce hearing, the lower court issued a temporary restraining order that forbade Hogue "from taking the child around or otherwise exposing the child to his gay loverfs) and/or his gay lifestyle." Later that year, Cher Lynn Hogue filed a complaint that her husband had violated the restraining order by telling his son that he is gay Lesbian receives donations to help repay R0TC scholarship BOULDER, Colo. — A University of Colorado professor and an alumna vowed to help a UC student who was kicked out of the Air Force ROTC after she acknowledged she is a lesbian, and now must repay her military scholarship, the Daily Camera of Boulder, Colo., reported. Mara Boyd must repay $30,990 for failing to complete her service, the newspaper stated. Boyd dropped out of school and began to work as a gardener after being ejected from ROTC, according to the Daily Camera. UC journalism professor Jan Whitt and alumna Susan Schmidt set up a fund to raise money and assist in paying Boyd's debt, the newspaper reported. Other university officials and state lawmakers also have spoken out on Boyd's behalf, the Daily Camera reported. "I want Mara back in school," Whitt told the newspaper. "She is bright, articulate, courageous and honest. She will succeed at whatever she does, and I want her to graduate and represent the university well." From staff and wire reports
