While the fate of the state's homosexual conduct law rests in the hands of the Texas 14th Court of Appeals, the fact that the three- judge panel of that court overturned the law in June was a landmark occasion. Add to that the stories of the state's first legal lesbian wedding, plus Vermont's first civil union and you have a year for the history books. The following is a month-by-month summary of some of the stories of note covered by the Houston Voice in 2000: JANUARY Radio station quiet after alleged gay slurs: The producer of a local morning radio program has come under fire for allegedly using anti- gay slurs to describe lesbian City Councilmember Annise Parker during a broadcast last week. Keven Dorsey, producer of "The Dean and Rog Show" on KKRW 93.7, allegedly called Parker a "dyke" and "carpet muncher" during the morning drive- time show on Jan. 21 during a discussion about Parker's involvement with the Westheimer Street Festival. "While it is insulting to me, it is an affront to the lesbian community," Parker said. "There are equivalent terms one would use for other minorities that no other radio station in 1 louston would use. We don't live in a city that tolerates those kind of remarks." The station issued a terse on-air apology to Parker the following week, though station officials took no action against Dorsey for calling Parker a "dyke" and "carpet muncher" during a Jan, 21 broadcast. "They did what I asked," Parker said. "They made a public apology and they Annise Parker I that similar behavior wouldn't happen in the future." Probe targets prescription fraud at AIDS clinic: A local and federal probe into alleged prescription fraud at Thomas Street Clinic has indefinitely shut down a popular volunteer program there and raised concerns about a heavy-handed investigation. A tip from a clinic employee in December launched the investigation, which has resulted in the arrest of a former volunteer with the People With AIDS Coalition and the temporary closing of the coalition's volunteer and child care programs at the sprawling AIDS clinic in Near Northside in Houston's Fourth Ward. A week later, the Harris County Hospital District, which operates the clinic, ordered the PWA's volunteer program—along with its child care program—shut down during the ongoing investigation. Before his arrest, Pullam volunteered in the PWA program. In March, the program was reinstated and hospital district officials ordered clinic director Carolyn Barrett reassigned. In June, three people associated with the clinic were indicted for stealing from the state by using phony prescriptions to obtain steroids and charge them to Medicaid, Calvin Burdine according to authorities. FEBRUARY State to fight order to free condemned killer After 16 years on death row, and enduring anti-gay slurs from a prosecutor and a defense attorney who slept through much of his 1984 murder trial, Calvin Burdine anticipated being set free. A federal judge ordered his release in February, ruling that the state missed an earlier deadline to either set Burdine free or retry Burdine for killing his roommate and former boyfriend. Later, the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals threw out a lower court's order requiring Burdine be released because the state missed a deadline for retrying him. U.S. District Judge David Hittner issued the order March 3 and is the same judge who ruled last September that Burdine's trial was unfair because his lawyer slept through much of it. The case is still not settled. The full 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals decided to take up the case after a three-judge >■ Continued on Page 6
