Transcript -fl HOUSTON VOICE www.houston voice.com ^around the nation Fla. politician apologizes for comment linking gays, porn APRIL 11, 2003 9 HOLLYWOOD, Fla. — Hollywood Commissioner Sal Oliveri drew protests from gay residents when he spoke out April 2 against the city allowing an adult entertainment business, the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reported. "Wake up America ... otherwise you have a pervert or a homosexual living next to you," Oliveri said during a commission meeting. Almost a dozen protesters gathered outside of City Hall two days later to demand an apology. "I want you to know I'm offended for anyone to say my sexual category throws me into a pedophile category," Carol Hoehn, a pediatric nurse, told Oliveri after he came outside to meet with them. Oliveri, a 13-year veteran of the commission, apologized for including gays in his criticism. "Everyone who is righteous has a right to live the way they do," he said. Sal Oliveri, a commissioner in Hollywood, Fla., apologized after being criticized tor anti-gay comments he made during a recent commission meeting. ACLU sues on behalf of gay Ark. student LITTLE ROCK, Ark. — A federal lawsuit filed by the ACLU on April 8 claims that the Pulaski County Special School District violated the constitutional guarantees of free speech, equal protection, privacy and separation of church and state in its treatment of gay student Thomas McLaughlin. 14. Over the course of 18 months, school officials at Jacksonville Junior High School allegedly told the teen's parents he is gay, forced him to keep quiet about his sexual orientation and suspended him for not doing so. "My school forced me out of the closet when I should have been allowed to come out to my family on my own terms and when I thought it was the right time," McLaughlin said earlier this month. "And now the school has been trying to shove me back into it ever since." The lawsuit seeks an injunction on further action against McLaughlin. "We're taking them to court to ensure that other lesbian and gay students in the district wouldn't face similar discrimination," said James Esseks, litigation director for the ACLU's Lesbian & Gay Rights Project. S&M convention prompts protests in Okla. city EDMOND, Okla. (AP) — A S&M leather convention last weekend, dubbed Tribal Fire 2003, raised the hackles of local religious leaders. Paul Klassen, president of the Edmond Ministerial Alliance, urged Christians to devote the weekend to prayer and fasting. "We ask God to deal, forgive and deliver all who are in bondage to a self-destructive life," the alliance said in a statement. The event, held April 4* at the Ramada Plaza Hotel Edmond, featured seminars and demonstrations by nationally recognized S&M leaders. "The hotels wouldn't invite us back if we were a problem," said Susan Wright, spokesperson for the National Coalition for Sexual Freedom. The NCSF spoke out last year when complaints from religious groups prompted Cendant Corporation, the hotel franchiser that includes Ramada and Howard Johnson, to issue a letter warning local hotels about booking "controversial guests." In a clarification letter sent to the coalition. Cendant promised to honor the rights of franchisees to sell rooms and meeting space to "the persons of their choice." Colo, student suspende for calling referee 'gay' GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (AP) — A sixth-grader whose ball was called out of bounds during a playground game was suspended for two-days for saying the call of the student referee was "gay." West Middle School student Ben Madison, 12, said he thought the word meant "dumb" until his mother explained it. Principal Jody Mimmack said students are warned about such behaviors before they are suspended. "We work very hard to create a safe environment for students," Mimmack said. The principal said Madison also would have been suspended if he had referred to the playground call as "dumb" or if he had teased the other student about a hairstyle or ethnicity. But Madison's mother complained her son was being treated "as a test case." Lesbian teacher in Utah wins effort to oust her from job SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — The Utah Supreme Court on April 4 left it up to education officials whether to fire a lesbian high school teacher. The ruling was a victory for psychology teacher Wendy Weaver, who came under attack from parents and students at Spanish Fork High School in a heavily Mormon part of Utah. Teachers are required by law to be moral models for their students. A lawsuit accused Weaver of failing to be a good role model because her sexual orientation conflicted with state laws prohibiting sodomy. Weaver, who now uses her unmarried name Wendy Chandler, said the court's decision was a relief. "What they were going after was not really within their right as citizens to do," Weaver said of her critics. Weaver disclosed her sexual orientation when asked by curious students in 1997. Shortly thereafter, the high school barred her from talking about it, and Weaver later won a federal lawsuit against the Nebo School District for that requirement. Parents and students tried to remove Weaver by complaining to the local school board, but the district did not fire the award-winning, 20-year teacher.
