Page 18 Texas versions of the anti-gay Defense of Marriage Act pass both House and Senate committees By PENNY WEAVER The Texas Senate was poised to vote Thursday on a state version of the Defense of Marriage Act, which would prohibit the state from recognizing same-sex civil unions, even though Texas already does not validate such "marriages." In the last week, committees in both the Texas House and Senate approved DOMA legislation, which gay rights activists have called a "slap in the face" to gay Texans. Those moves send the issue to each chamber for a vote by all lawmakers. "I think what the GLBT community in Texas should be aware of is it's very obvious in both the Senate and the House that they are going to do what they want to do and are not engaging in a dialogue." said Randall Ellis, executive director of the Lesbian/Gay Rights Lobby of Texas. "Texans should be outraged at that. What's next? "We have to beg and plead" to be heard by lawmakers, Ellis added. On Thursday, April 3, the Texas Senate Committee on State Affairs signed off on legislation that would ban the state from recognizing same-sex civil unions. The proposal, Senate Bill 7. is also known as the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), and was scheduled before the full Senate on Thursday, April 10, for a vote. "Clearly the point of the bill is to encourage and protect the institution that is fundamental to our whole society and that is traditional marriage" between one man and one woman, said bill sponsor, Sen. Jeff Wentworth, R-San Antonio. "People talk about discrimination as though it were a bad thing," Wentworth said in defending the bill. "It is something we do all the time." Please see TX DOMA on Page 8 Randall Ellis, executive director of the Lesbian/Gay Rights Lobby of Texas, said gay Texans should be outraged' that both state House and Senate committees have approved a Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA). He said with the conservative Republican majority in the current Texas Legislature, gays have to 'beg and plead' to be heard by state representatives.

Lauren, the domestic partner of a senior Navy enlisted person, drove her partner to the California port last November so she could embark on the destroyer that would soon set sail for the Persian Gulf and the expected war in Iraq. Hundreds of teary-eyed but enthusiastic spouses and family members waived to their loved ones in the military as the giant ship pulled away from the dock. But "Lauren," a lesbian who asked to remain anonymous to protect the identities of the couple, was not among them. "I dropped her off that day," Lauren said. "But I did not get out of the car. We said our good-byes at home. It was for her safety — of not being discovered." Lauren's partner is among the thousands Please see MILITARY GAYS on Page 10 The military offers programs for heterosexual spouses of service members serving in the Iraq war, including support groups and emergency assistance. But the Don't Ask, Don't Tell' policy forces gay partners to hide their relationships and miss out on opportunities for help. (Photo by Greg Bryan/AP. Photo illustration by John Nail)
