By LOU CHIBBARO JR.

Expressions of condolences from LGBT
activists and their straight supporters
poured in from across the country this
week following the death in Washington on
Tuesday of Franklin E. Kameny, one of the
nations most prominent gay rights leaders.
Friends said Kameny, 86, appears to
have died in his sleep while in bed at
his house in Northwest Washington.
A representative of the D.C. Medical
Examiners ofce, who spoke to friends and
well-wishers who stood outside the house
Tuesday night, said the cause of death
couldnt be immediately determined.
Kamenys passing came a little more than
a month before the planned celebration
on Nov. 15 of the 50th anniversary of
his founding of the Mattachine Society
of Washington, the rst gay rights
organization in the nations capital.
LGBT rights advocates Charles Francis
and Bob Witeck, who were longtime
friends of Kamenys and established the
project to preserve Kamenys papers
over a 50-year period, said they would be
announcing soon plans for a memorial
service to honor the gay rights leaders life.
Witeck said Nov. 15 is being considered
as a possible date for a Kameny memorial
gathering.
Timothy Clark, Kamenys tenant and
friend, said he found Kameny unconscious
and unresponsive in his bed shortly after
5 p.m. on Tuesday. Clark said he became
concerned when he arrived home a few
minutes earlier and noticed Kameny
hadnt retrieved his newspapers, which are
delivered outside the house in the morning.
He said he called 911 and rescue
workers determined that Kameny had
passed away earlier, most likely in his
sleep. Clark said he had spoken with
Kameny shortly before midnight on the
previous day and Kameny didnt appear
to be ill or in distress.
Kameny is credited with being one of
the leading strategists for the early gay
rights movement beginning nearly a
decade before the 1969 Stonewall riots
in New Yorks Greenwich Village and
continuing forward.
The Stonewall riots, triggered by a police
raid of the Stonewall gay bar, are considered
by most activist leaders as the starting point
of the modern LGBT rights movement. But
movement leaders credit Kameny and his
collaborators in the Mattachine Society of
Washington with laying the groundwork
that enabled the post-Stonewall LGBT
organizing to ourish.
Frank was a revolutionary who lived to see
the world change, and Im comforted by that,
said Francis. He was the rst gay American to
root the argument for gay civil equality in the
words of Thomas Jefferson and the Declaration
of Independence and Constitution.
Gay historian David K. Johnson, who
wrote about Kameny in two books
on the gay rights movement, said
Kameny broke from the early American
homophile movements tactics of
accommodation with the prevailing views
that homosexuality was a disorder.
Kamenys style and tactics differed
markedly from those of earlier homosexual
leaders, Johnson wrote in a 2002
article posted on the website of D.C.s
Rainbow History Project. By unabashedly
proclaiming that homosexuality was
neither sick nor immoral, Kameny helped
move gays and lesbians out of the
shadows of 1950s apologetic, self-help
groups and into the sunlight of the civil
rights movement, setting the tone for a
movement that continues today.
It was during his years as head of the
Mattachine Society of Washington that
Kameny in July 1968 coined the phrase,
Gay is Good, which activists say became
a forerunner to the gay pride celebrations
that followed the 1969 Stonewall riots.
Born and raised in New York City,
Kameny served in combat as an Army
soldier in World War II in Europe. After the
war, Kameny received his doctorate degree
in astronomy from Harvard University.
He came to Washington in 1956 to
take a position teaching astronomy at
Georgetown University. The following year,
government recruiters persuaded him to
take a job as a civilian astronomer with the
U.S. Army Map Service in Washington.
NASA career derailed
Kameny told the Blade in a 2002
interview that the nations race against
the Soviet Union for superiority in space
had just begun in full force and he set his
sights, among other things, on a possible
role in the U.S. space program.
A short time later, Congress created
the National Aeronautics and Space
Administration and Kameny said he would
have seriously considered applying to
become an astronaut. But that was not to
come about.
Just ve months into his job at the Army
Map Service, U.S. government security
investigators uncovered information
leading them to believe Kameny was gay.
They opened an investigation into his
alleged threat to national security. Within
a few weeks he was dismissed from his job,
with his name placed on a list of people
labeled as government security risks.
Kameny challenged the dismissal before
the U.S. Civil Service Commission, which set
personnel policies for federal employees.
The commission upheld the ring, prompting
Kameny to take the matter to court. After
losing in the lower courts, he appealed his
case to the U.S. Supreme Court, becoming
the rst known gay person to le a gay-
related case before the high court.
The Supreme Court upheld a lower
court ruling against Kameny and declined
to hear the case. But Kamenys decision to
appeal the case through the court system
motivated him to become a lifelong
advocate on behalf of LGBT equality.
Gay historian Johnson wrote in his 2002
article that Kamenys lawyer withdrew from
the case after the U.S. Court of Appeals
ruled against Kameny, forcing Kameny to
write his own appeal to the Supreme Court.
Johnson called Kamenys 60-page
legal brief led before the high court a
groundbreaking challenge to the federal
governments policy barring homosexuals
from working for the government in
any capacity. Johnson said it served
as Kamenys and the gay movements
strategy document for advancing legal
rights for gays in the years going forward.
Kamenys Supreme Court brief, or
petition, also offered the world its rst
glimpse of what became his trademark
use of blunt, sometimes inammatory
language combined with reasoned
arguments to challenge anti-gay policies.
The governments regulations, policies,
practices and procedures, as applied in the
instant case to petitioner specically, and
as applied to homosexuals generally, are a
stench in the nostrils of decent people, an
offense against morality, an abandonment
of reason, an affront to human dignity, an
improper restraint upon proper freedom
and liberty, a disgrace to any civilized society,
and a violation of all that this nation stands
for, he wrote in his Supreme Court petition.
These policies, practices, procedures,
and regulations have gone too long
unquestioned and too long unexamined
by the courts, he wrote.
Govt apologizes to Kameny
Although Kameny lost his own case,
he spent the next decade working with
attorneys and other gay and lesbian
federal workers to chip away at the then
U.S. Civil Service Commissions ban on
gay federal employees through new
court challenges. By 1975, after losing
several cases to gay employees who won
reinstatement to their jobs over a period
of years, the Civil Service Commission
dropped its ban on gay employees.
The change, which came under the
administration of President Gerald Ford,
was based on court rulings saying the
government could not discriminate against
homosexual federal employees if no
evidence exists to show a harmful nexus
between someones sexual orientation and
their ability to perform their job.
Kameny, who called the development a
major victory for gay rights, turned next to
ongoing efforts to end two other anti-gay
policies of the government the ban on
gays from receiving government security
clearances and the ban on gays in the military.
In 2009, the Obama administration
through the U.S. Ofce of Personnel
Management the successor agency to
the Civil Service Commission issued
Kameny a formal apology for his 1957
ring. The apology was extended by OPM
Director John Berry, an openly gay man.
In an area of work for which Kameny
is less known, he established a paralegal
practice in the 1970s that continued
through the 1980s and early 90s to
represent gays encountering problems
obtaining or retaining security clearances
as well as gays facing discharge from the
military because of their sexual orientation.
Activists following his paralegal work,
including those who he helped keep
their security clearances, called Kameny a
tenacious counsel who sometimes worked
with lawyers and other times served as
an administrative representative before
adjudicatory hearings, including discharge
hearings in all branches of the military.
When the super-secret National
Security Agency (NSA) was on the verge of
ring me simply for discovering I was gay, I
enlisted Frank Kamenys help in resisting,
said Jamie Shoemaker, a linguist and NSA
career employee.
His gutsy, unapologetic efforts to
save my career and that of many others
with security clearances led to a ground-
breaking change in the attitude of our
countrys intelligence agencies toward
gays, Shoemaker said.
Kameny said he was pleased when his
security clearance practice became mostly
unnecessary in the 1990s when President
Bill Clinton issued an executive order
prohibiting discrimination based on sexual
orientation in the issuance of government
security clearances.
Soliciting sodomy
In his work with military service members
ensnared in what activists called witch
hunts, where military investigators
pressured vulnerable gays to identify
other gays under false promises of lenient
treatment, Kameny coined another phrase
aimed at helping those under investigation
Say nothing, sign nothing, get counsel.
Charles Francis and others who knew
Kameny said his paralegal work met an
important need in the years before groups such
as Lambda Legal Defense and Education Fund
and Servicemembers Legal Defense Network
emerged to take on this type of legal work.
LGBT movement colleagues also
credit Kameny with playing a lead role
in the effort to persuade the American
Psychiatric Association in 1973 to remove
homosexuality from its list of disorders.
As a scientist by profession, Kameny
wrote and spoke often beginning in the
1960s about what he called the faulty
or junk science that the psychiatric
profession used to support its claim that
homosexuality was a mental disorder.
Kameny and others supporting him
within the profession argued that nearly
all of the gays are sick theories were
based on studies of patients in therapy.
There were little or no studies made of

17 graduate from trans job program
D.C. Mayor Vincent Gray spoke at a rst-of-its-kind graduation ceremony Oct. 7
for 17 transgender residents who completed a special city jobs training program
called Project Empowerment.
The program, which is conducted by the D.C. Department of Employment
Services, is said to be the only local, county or state program of its kind in the
nation that provides job training and other employment services specically
directed toward the transgender community.
We are extremely pleased to graduate our rst transgender class in the Project
Empowerment Program, said DOES Director Lisa Mallory.
D.C. Cowboys announce nal season
The D.C. Cowboys, a local dance troupe for gay men, is wrapping up after
18 years with a farewell tour. Kevin Platte, the groups founder, said the group
was conceived on a whim and having accomplished more than he ever thought
possible, its time for its members to move on.
I never thought this would be a group that just went on forever, Platte said.
Id been thinking as the leader when would be a good time to go out on top. In
showbiz you always want to leave your audience wanting more, so I think 2012 will
be a wonderful time to do that and is kind of our way of giving back to everyone
who made us who we are, the audience, fans and supporters. This is our way to
show our appreciation.
Platte started the troupe in 1994 and imagined it would be a one-off for a
performance at the Atlantic Stampede gay rodeo. But the group, a kind of gay
Chippendales with country sensibilities and motifs, was popular enough that it
became a regular outt. The group became famous for its shirtless performances,
its charity calendars and was a staple on the Capital Pride parade and festival
main stage. Its fame rose in recent years as it toured internationally. Platte says
performing on the nationally televised Americas Got Talent in 2008 and closing
the Gay Games in Chicago in 2006 were two of the highlights for him.
Those two are really big, he says. Just amazing moments.
Platte, who always kept a day job working as a project manager for a computer company,
guesses about 75 guys have been in the group altogether over the years. There are usually
between 16 and 20 at a time. Platte is the only dancer to stay with it continuously. He hopes
former members will join him for the farewell tour but hes auditioning new members for
the nal year as well. Visit dccowboys.org for more information.

over the economy has captured the
attention of the nation and spread to
Washington and other cities.
Many protesters have decried
government bailouts for nancial
institutions whose leaders escaped
accountability for the recession. Others
have focused on local issues and
many LGBT advocates have joined the
demonstrations. In New York, there is
frustration among LGBT youth over cuts to
programs like homeless youth shelters and
HIV/AIDS care and prevention programs.
Jonathan J.C. Lopez of Brooklyn
has, like many of these campers, been
sleeping on the ground in Zuccotti Park
in a sleeping bag with his boyfriend for
nearly two weeks.
I experienced a lot of messed up
things, and a lot of good things that come
along here, like how the cops were,
Lopez said about clashes with police that
triggered widespread criticism. They
messed up and Im glad that what they did
is on camera.
He hopes that the protests bring change
to the New York Police Department.
The good thing is that everybody works
together for one thing and one thing only:
Stand up, Lopez said about the actions
in New Yorks nancial district. Everybody
is tired of not speaking. The protest here
is mainly for helping everybody. You know,
the homeless, the justice, everything to
make a change.
Lopez sees unique economic challenges
for LGBT youth and sees the protests as a
catalyst to x those problems.
Certain people are just stranded in
the street because of what they are,
he told the Blade as the sun was setting
over his campsite. Changing the whole
economic system, changing people that
are homeless, putting the programs back
on, like the shelters and so on and so on,
so people can get a job, people can get a
home. I hope that will change.
Queer economic justice can mean
several things, Jake Goodman of New
York activist group Queer Rising told the
Blade. On a very literal level, corporations
to my knowledge of which most have
changed their employment policies to
be favorable to at least gays and lesbian
people still donate a majority of their
donations to candidates and to political
parties that actively pursue policies that
take away our rights or block us from our
rights. So queer economic justice is to
stop funding those people.
Also queer economic justice is to
remember that gay people are not the only
queer people there are transgender
people that need help with housing [and
employment protections] and we need to
remember our other brothers and sisters
and ensure economic justice for them,
Goodman said, as a crowd gathered
below the red Joie de Vivre statue
towering over Zuccotti Park. Economic
justice for them is providing protection
for [homeless queer youth] while theyre
on the streets because families kick them
out, Goodman continued. [Queer Rising
is advocating] for additional $3 million per
year in the budget every year ,which would
provide 100 additional beds per year until
everybody has beds and protection.
The Blade spent Monday and Tuesday
in New York and LGBT protesters were
found at every turn.
Diego Angarita of Massachusetts sees
LGBT issues wrapped up with many of the
other issues being addressed.
As you saw in the declaration for Occupy
Wall Street, there is still discrimination
based on your sexual orientation and
gender, said Angarita, who was the
sole marcher carrying a rainbow ag in a
procession around the park. Transgender
people are discriminated against all the
time. Imagine if there was a transgender
stock trader. Are you kidding me that
would never happen.
There are gay people who were
immigrants, gay people who are
undocumented, gay people who are
on welfare, I mean gay people who are
environmentalists, gay indigenous folks,
Angarita continued. Being gay is so
integrated into every form of identity
that is out there and being the particular
gay angle I guess is just discrimination
for gender inequity and forms and in the
sense of identity in general.
Sunlight Foundation organizer Bridget
Todd has been marching with the Occupy
Washington protests in Lafayette Park
since the start of the demonstrations and
said the D.C. branch of the movement is
only getting started.
I dont think that cops are going to
force them to get out and theyre going
to see if it peeters out on its own; but I
actually dont think it will, I think its only
getting stronger, Todd said of the D.C.
demonstrations. We were there just the
other day on Sunday doing a teaching and
trying to nd ways to help them strengthen
their movements and strengthen their
ideas and really engage them.
I got laid off in April and were all
suffering, said Kristin Ridley, who traveled
from Occupy L.A. to join the New York
protest. Were all suffering and this is a
basically becoming a plutocracy in this
country, being ruled by the wealthy, and it
hurts all of us.
We need to go out and show support
for a populist movement, she continued.
And wrapped up into that are also a lot
of the individual things that help people,
for example, advancing equal rights
based on things like sexual orientation, it
just ts right into it.
Though many members of the swelling
group repeated that all were welcome,
and that LGBT issues were not specically
being singled out because the economic
policies being advocated would help
all, some gay participants said they saw
opportunities to educate passersby and
others on unique LGBT economic issues.
Paula Cambronero had an exchange with
a man who approached her near the food
trucks where interviews with protesters
were being conducted.
He was interested in what was going
on and he didnt feel he understood
what people were here for, so he started
asking me a few questions, Cambronero
said. He asked me what real democracy
meant, whether we thought we had a fake
democracy now, where we were going,
and he also asked me what we thought
social justice meant. I said I thought it
meant that everyone should have the
same opportunities and the same rights,
and he said that everybody already did.
Cambronero used the inability of same-
sex couples to marry as an example of
inequality, which led him to proclaim all
gay people can marry, as long as they
marry the opposite sex.
We had an interesting discussion
where he shared his viewpoints of why he
thought the law should not change, and I
shared my opinion of why it should, she
told the Blade. I hope I got him thinking.
Rev. Magora Kennedy whose hat was
decorated with a rainbow ag was in
the Stonewall Inn the night that the police
raid on the gay bar sparked three nights
of unrest in New York City, leading to the
dawn of the modern LGBT rights struggle.
We were in the streets from that Friday
until that Monday, Kennedy said. That
weekend, there was very little salt in the
pepper. Most of us that were out there were
people of color. The thing that happened
with Stonewall, as the movement went on,
it got whiter and whiter. Most of us that
were involved with Stonewall, theres not
many of us that are alive today.
Kennedy, a lesbian, was married to a
gay man in the military. The two married
to prevent Kennedys husband from being
kicked out of the military. They had four
sons. Kennedy now has 14 grandchildren
and nine great grandchildren and calls
herself the gayest great-grandmother
out of the closet.
Im so sorry that hes not alive today
to know that Dont Ask, Dont Tell was
repealed and that gay people can openly
join the services now.
Kennedy sees the LGBT rights
movement and the Occupy Wall Street
protests as extensions of the civil rights
movement.
This whole thing is something that
weve all been going through from the
time of the civil rights movement, she
said above a chorus of protesters and
drums rising from the center of Zuccotti
Park, just steps from the site of the World
Trade Center. When they were putting
together Wall Street it was very, very
white; no women and no people of color.
She continued, today the people
of color the blacks, the Puerto Ricans,
and just people of color in general they
gave them good salaries so theyd shut up.
These people are making millions of dollars
and as long as they stay quiet its a brand of
new slavery and its economic slavery.

My heart breaks
for these parents
By CHRIS JOHNSON
cjohnson@washblade.com
The U.S. Supreme Court announced
on Tuesday that it wont hear an appeal
of a case that sought to protect adoption
rights for gay couples.
The court denied the petition for a writ
of certiorari, which was led by Lambda
Legal, in the case of Adar v. Smith. Justices
didnt offer a comment on why they
wouldnt hear the lawsuit, which effectively
ended the path for the litigation.
Kenneth Upton, supervising senior
staff attorney in Lambdas south central
regional ofce in Dallas, said the Supreme
Court is leaving untouched a dangerous
previously issued ruling that leaves same-sex
parents who have adopted or plan to adopt
treated differently from state to state.
By denying this writ, the Supreme Court
is leaving untouched a dangerous Fifth
Circuit Court of Appeals ruling that carves
out an exception to the Full Faith and Credit
Clause of the U.S. Constitution and to the
uniformly recognized respect for judgments
that states have come to rely upon,
Upton said. This decision leaves adopted
children and their parents vulnerable in their
interactions with ofcials from other states.
The case involves Oren Adar and
Mickey Smith, a gay couple who in 2006
adopted their Louisiana-born son in New
York, where a judge issued an adoption
decree. In 2007, the couple attempted to
obtain a new birth certicate for their child
in part so Smith could extend his health
insurance coverage to his son.
However, State Registrar Darlene
Smith wouldnt issue a certicate with
both adopted parents names, saying
Louisiana doesnt recognize adoption by
unmarried parents.
In October 2007, Lambda led a lawsuit
on the basis that the registrar was violating
the U.S. Constitutions Full Faith and Credit
Clause and Equal Protection Clause. Lambda
argued that under the Full Faith and Credit
Clause, judgments issued by a court in one
state, such as New York, must be legally
binding in other states, such as Louisiana.
Judges have ruled in varying ways as the
lawsuit has made its way through the courts.
In 2008, a U.S. district court ruled in favor
of the plaintiffs and ordered the Louisiana
registrar to issue a new birth certicate
identifying both Adar and Mickey Smith as
the parents. In 2010, a three-judge panel
of the U.S. Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals
unanimously afrmed the judgment.
However, under appeal, a 10-member
majority of the full Fifth Circuit in April
issued a decision ruling in favor of the
Louisiana registrar and overturning the
prior decisions. The Supreme Courts
decision not to take up the case leaves the
appellate courts decision as it stands.
Jennifer Chrisler, executive director of
the Family Equality Council, expressed
sadness over the high courts decision not
to take up the case.
My heart breaks for these parents, and
for children across the country who lack
the legal relationship with their parents,
Chrisler said. A growing number of LGBT
parents are creating their families through
adoption and although they are bound
together by love, we cannot allow states
to deny them legal recognition.
Lambdas Upton said advocates will take
up the issue with the Louisiana Legislature
to ensure same-sex couples have
protections for their adopted children.
This issue now moves into the
legislative arena, Upton said. We need
to push for a change in Louisiana state
policy in order to stabilize and standardize
respect for parent-child relationships for
all adoptive children.
Whether the push for change at the state
level will be successful remains to be seen. The
Louisiana House is controlled by Republicans,
while the Senate has a Democratic majority.
Republican Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal is
known for holding anti-gay views.
Jennifer Pizer, legal director of the Williams
Institute at the University of California, Los
Angeles, said the Supreme Courts decision
lets stand a troubling precedent that
could impact not just adoption but also
other family rights and court judgments.
And, yes, to be clear, the implications
for LGBT people are potentially very
substantial, Pizer continued. As states
continue to diverge with some offering
full equality to LGBT people and others
still moving rmly in the other direction
interstate questions are likely to
proliferate, especially with respect to
family issues involving same-sex couples,
transgender people, and their children.
Pizer said the push to have the Supreme
Court take up the case was an exceedingly
long shot because justices only accept
a tiny fraction of review petitions each
year. Over the course of the upcoming
years, Pizer said she expects the Fifth
Circuits reasoning will likely be rejected
by other courts as inconsistent with the
purpose of the Full Faith and Credit Clause.
It is not uncommon for the U.S.
Supreme Court to wait until a split
develops among federal circuits, sketching
out the different ways an issue can be
seen and the scope of consequences in
the various cases, before taking a case
like this, Pizer continued. But its difcult
for those affected during that process,
especially when a new limiting principle
newly closes courthouse doors and the
needs of parents and children are ignored
and, in most instances, ultimately denied.

the overwhelming majority of gays who
never sought therapy and functioned well
in society despite widespread anti-gay
prejudice, Kameny and others argued.
When broader studies were conducted of
gays and lesbians in the population at large,
ndings showed there were no differences
in the numbers found to have mental health
problems between samples of gays and
straights, Kameny often pointed out.
In yet another area of work, Kameny is
credited with playing an early and effective
role in pushing for repeal of state sodomy
laws, which made it illegal for consenting
adults to engage in oral or anal sex in the
privacy of the home. In keeping with his
characteristic deant rhetoric, Kameny sought
to dramatize what he called the lunacy of
laws prohibiting private, consenting sex.
On a number of occasions he publicly
solicited public ofcials, including D.C.s
police chief in the 1960s, to engage in
sodomy with him. In 1987, when the U.S.
Supreme Court upheld Georgias sodomy
law in the case Bowers vs. Hardwick,
Kameny said he wrote letters soliciting
sodomy to each of the Supreme Court
justices that voted to uphold the law.
I deed them to prosecute me, he
told the Blade. They never did.
Joe Solmonese, president of the
Human Rights Campaign, said Kameny
led an extraordinary life marked by heroic
activism that set a path for the modern
LGBT civil rights movement.
From the early days ghting
institutionalized discrimination in the
federal workforce, Dr. Kameny taught us
all that Gay is Good, Solmonese said.
As we say goodbye to this trailblazer on
National Coming Out Day, we remember
the remarkable power we all have to
change the world by living our lives like
Frank openly, honestly and authentically.
Chuck Wolfe, CEO of the Gay & Lesbian
Victory Fund, said Kamenys death marked
the loss of a hero and a founding father
of the ght to end discrimination against
LGBT people.
Dr. Kameny stood up for this community
when doing so was considered unthinkable
and even shocking, and he continued to
do so throughout his life, Wolfe said. He
spoke with a clear voice and rm conviction
about the humanity and dignity of people
who were gay, long before it was safe for
him to do so. All of us who today endeavor
to complete the work he began a half
century ago are indebted to Dr. Kameny and
his remarkable bravery and commitment.
Local activists who knew Kameny said
they are deeply saddened over his passing
but pleased to have shared time with him
at several LGBT events in Washington
during the past three weeks.
On Sept. 30, D.C.s LGBT Community
Center honored Kameny along with three
other activists with its community service
award at a ceremony at the downtown
Hotel Sotel. Kameny delivered what his
activist friends called his standard and
beloved ery speech asserting his 50-year
struggle to change society to bring about
full and unabridged rights for LGBT people.
It was to be his last speaking engagement.
His passing inside his house on Tuesday
came several years after the city designated
the house at 5020 Cathedral Ave., N.W., as a
historic landmark because of the work Kameny
and his activist colleagues performed there
since the 1960s on behalf of LGBT rights. In
2010, the D.C. City Council voted unanimously
to name a two-block section of 17th Street
near Dupont Circle as Frank Kameny Way in
honor of Kamenys lifelong work on behalf
of equality for the LGBT community and the
community at large.

Speakers condemn
same-sex marriage in
harsh language
By CHRIS JOHNSON
cjohnson@washblade.com
Anti-gay rhetoric pervaded a social
conservative convention last weekend in
which Republican presidential candidates
burnished their credentials for the
religious right.
Remarks against gays and marriage
equality came from several speakers
including lawmakers and conservative
activists at the 2011 Value Voters
Summit in D.C., which was hosted by the
anti-gay Family Research Council.
Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa), known for
being one of the most anti-gay members
of the U.S. House, had particularly harsh
words on Friday for LGBT advocates
seeking to advance same-sex marriage.
Marriage is the essential foundation
stone for civilization, King said. Its under
assault today, ladies and gentlemen.
Its under assault even though it is a
sacrament. They have decided they are
going to assault it and they are doing
so because not because there is an
ulterior value out there. They will just
attack everything that we believe in.
The Iowa lawmaker, who spoke fondly
of his involvement with the 2010 campaign
that ousted three Iowa justices who ruled
in favor of marriage equality, ridiculed pro-
LGBT activists who protested the bus tour
in the campaign against the judges.
They were on the verge of militant,
King said. They would come out and
they would stand in there and they would
scream and yell and curse with the worst
profanity Ive heard anywhere, and I spent
my life in the construction business. They
were the most unhappy people I ever met
that called themselves gay.
According to the Iowa Independent,
Kings description of the bus tour isnt
consistent with what reporters from the
media outlet saw. At one bus stop in
Cedar Rapids, for example, same-sex
marriage advocates outnumbered those
who attended in support of the campaign
and chose to mostly stand silently while
holding signs.
Bryan Fischer, director of issues analysis
for the American Family Association,
expressed among the strongest anti-
gay views during his summit and said on
Saturday he wants a president who will
treat homosexuality not as a political cause
at all, but as a threat to public health.
Homosexual behavior represents the
same threat to human health that injection
drug use does, Fischer said. I believe
we need a president who understands
that neither homosexual behavior nor
injection drug use represent lifestyles
that any responsible government ought
to normalize, legitimize, legalize, protect,
sanction, or subsidize.
GOP presidential hopeful Mitt Romney
criticized Fischer at the event.
We should remember that decency and
civility are values too, Romney said. One
of the speakers who will follow me today
has crossed that line I think. Poisonous
language doesnt advance our cause.
It has never softened a single heart or
changed a single mind.
Romney didnt explicitly name anyone in
these remarks, but, according to Politico,
a Romney campaign ofcial conrmed
the former Massachusetts governor was
referring to Fischer. Its unclear whether
Romney was chastising Fischer for being
anti-gay. Fischer has also had vitriolic
words for Islam as well as Mormonism,
which is Romneys faith.
Jimmy LaSalvia, executive director of
gay conservative group GOProud, said
Romney is absolutely right about Fischer
and said the anti-gay activists comments
are what you would expect from a
barbarian like Ahmadinejad not from a
man who professes to be a Christian.
Gov. Romney should be praised for
speaking out courageously against this
kind of rhetoric, LaSalvia continued.
We have a country on the edge of scal
disaster and it is critical that we have a
united conservative movement that can
make the case to average Americans
about why our vision, our values and our
policies are right for this country. The last
thing we need is a right wing version of
Jeremiah Wright, distracting and dividing
us, and thats exactly what Bryan Fisher is.
Despite his remarks, Romney also
reiterated his pledge to defend in court the
Defense of Marriage Act, which prohibits
federal recognition of same-sex marriage.
But marriage is more than a personally
rewarding social custom, Romney said.
It is also critical for the well-being of a
civilization. That is why its so important to
preserve traditional marriage the joining
together of one man and one woman. And
thats why I will appoint an attorney general
who will defend the bipartisan law passed
by Congress and signed by Bill Clinton
the Defense of Marriage Act.
The former Massachusetts governor
had previously signed a pledge with
the National Organization for Marriage
promising to defend DOMA against
litigation and to back a U.S. constitutional
amendment banning same-sex marriage.
Criticism for the Obama administrations
decision to drop the defense of DOMA
in court came from several Republican
presidential candidates during the Value
Voters Summit.
Herman Cain, former CEO of Godfathers
Pizza, was among those who said he
would resume the executive branchs role
in defending the law if elected president.
He previously spoke out against Obama
for no longer defending DOMA in court,
but hasnt signed the NOM pledge.
I believe that marriage is between one
man and one woman, Cain said. And I
would not have asked the Department
of Justice to not enforce it. I would have
asked the Department of Justice to
enforce the Defense of Marriage Act.
Cain is wrong in saying that Obama isnt
enforcing DOMA. Although the Justice
Department has discontinued defending
DOMA in court, the administration is still
enforcing the law.
House Republican leaders who
attended the conference trumpeted their
decision to take up defense of DOMA.
After the administration announced
in February it would no longer defend
DOMA, the Houses Bipartisan Legal
Advisory Group voted on a party-line
basis to take up defense of the law.
House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio)
restated his position before his audience
on Friday that funds should be directed
from the Justice Department to the House
to pay for the cost of defending DOMA.
Ive raised my hand to uphold and
defend the Constitution of the United
States and the laws of our country,
Boehner said. And if the Justice
Department was not going to defend
this act passed by Congress, well, then
we will. And we have defended the law
that the Congress passed. Were going
to take the money away from the Justice
Department, whos supposed to enforce
it, and well use it to enforce the law.
House Majority Leader Eric Cantor
(R-Va.) praised the Houses decision to
defend DOMA.
We will continue and stand up for the
Defense of Marriage Act as we ght for
victory in the Supreme Court this term,
Cantor said.
This week, a contract modication
became public revealing that House
Republicans had raised the cost cap to
$1.5 million to pay private attorney Paul
Clement, a former U.S. solicitor general,
to defend DOMA in court.
House Republicans cannot unilaterally
redirect congressionally allocated funds
from the Justice Department to the House
for the purposes of defending DOMA.
Both the House and the Senate would
have to approve the fund redistribution
legislatively through the appropriations
process and such a measure would
need Obamas signature for enactment.
Joe Solmonese, president of the
Human Rights Campaign, criticized House
Republican leaders for touting their
defense of DOMA as well as the anti-
gay tone of the conference in general.
This is a clarion call for equality
supporters and a sign of just how much
inuence groups like the Family Research
Council hold over anti-LGBT lawmakers,
Solmonese said. This is a reminder that
we have real challenges ahead of us
from repealing DOMA once and for all
to making our workplaces safer and more
equitable with the Employment Non-
Discrimination Act.
Drew Hammill, spokesperson for House
Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.),
also rebuked Boehner for extolling his
defense of DOMA and said Americans
have other priorities.
While Speaker Boehner does his best
to convince the right-wing that both of his
feet are rmly planted on the wrong side of
history, the American taxpayers are paying
the price, Hammill said. Its time for the
Speaker to end the hypocrisy of spending
$1.5 million to foster discrimination and make
more friends on the right, and get back to
Americans top priority: creating jobs.

But renews pledge to
reinstate DADT, ght
marriage equality
By CHRIS JOHNSON
cjohnson@washblade.com
Republican presidential candidate Rick
Santorum last week pledged to speak out
against the executions of gay people in
Iran calling it a grave moral wrong
and accused President Obama of not
addressing the issue.
I would talk about it, Santorum said.
This president doesnt talk about those
things. He doesnt talk about the torture,
he doesnt talk about the killing of women
and gays and imprisonment. These are
fundamental violations of human rights
that I would speak about.
Santorum made the remarks in a brief
interview with the Washington Blade in
D.C. at the 2011 Value Voters Summit, a
convention for social conservatives hosted
by the Family Research Council.
The GOP presidential hopeful spoke with
the Blade after a giving a speech in which he
criticized Obama for not defending the anti-
gay Defense of Marriage Act in court and
for allowing military chaplains to ofciate at
same-sex weddings.
Santorum also pledged to ght marriage
equality in every state to make sure that
marriage remains between one man and
one woman. He backs a U.S. constitutional
amendment that would ban same-sex
marriage throughout the country.
Speaking with the Blade, the former
U.S. senator from Pennsylvania pledged
to speak out against the killing of gays
in Iran when asked to clarify remarks he
gave in August during a presidential
debate. At the time, Santorum called
Iran a mullahcracy that tramples the
rights of women, tramples the rights of
gays, tramples the rights of people all
throughout their society.
In Iran, sodomy is an offense subject to
the death penalty. Just last month, Iran
reportedly executed three people who
were convicted of engaging in same-sex
sexual relations.
Chris Barron, chair of GOProud, said
Santorum is absolutely right about the
violations of human rights against gays in Iran.
We believe strongly that basic human
rights should know no geographic
boundary, Barron said. We thank Senator
Santorum for having the courage to speak
out with moral clarity on this issue.
Barron commended Santorum while
saying the Obama administration has
failed to address the issue.
While leaders like Israels Bibi
Netanyahu have addressed the United
Nations about the barbaric treatment of
gay people in Iran, this administration has
chosen to turn a blind eye, Barron said.
Despite claims Obama hasnt
addressed the issue, the president has
spoken up more generally in favor of
LGBT rights during a speech last month
before the United Nations General
Assembly, making him the rst sitting U.S.
president to do so.
No country should deny people their
rights to freedom of speech and freedom
of religion, but also no country should
deny people their rights because of who
they love, which is why we must stand
up for the rights of gays and lesbians
everywhere, Obama said.
Also during the interview with the
Blade, Santorum wouldnt venture to say
whether he thinks being gay is a choice
when asked if he shares the views of fellow
GOP presidential candidate Herman Cain,
who earlier this week stated that view.
I think theres all sorts of studies
that are contradicting on that subject,
Santorum said.
Major psychological institutions including
the American Psychological Association,
the American Medical Association and the
American Psychiatric Association have
stated that sexual orientation cant be
changed and that so-called reparative therapy
practices are dangerous.
Santorum also addressed his previously
stated pledge to reinstate Dont Ask,
Dont Tell if elected president. He said
he doesnt know whether he would do
so administratively or whether that would
have to be achieved through legislation.
Id have to study the issue, Santorum
said. I dont know. At this point, Id have
to I cant say how, but I certainly would
work toward that.

Worked for Lambda
Legal, other LGBT
rights groups
By PHIL REESE
preese@washblade.com
Paula Ettelbrick, former Lambda Legal
legal director and International Gay
and Lesbian Human Rights Commission
executive director died Oct. 7. She was 56.
Ettelbrick held the top spot at IGLHRC
from 2003-2009 and helped build the
organization.
In July, Ettelbrick was named executive
director of the New York-based Stonewall
Community Foundation, which funds
grants to LGBT community organizations.
She stepped down a month later due to
an ongoing battle with cancer.
In addition to her work at Lambda
Legal, IGLHRC and Stonewall Community
Foundation, Ettelbrick had also served as
policy director at the National Center for
Lesbian Rights and Legislative Counsel at
Empire State Pride Agenda.
While Legislative Counsel for
the Empire State Pride Agenda she
negotiated New York Citys landmark 1997
domestic partnership law with then-Mayor
Rudolph Giuliani, said former Empire
State Pride Agenda executive director,
Matt Foreman. At the time, it was the
nations most comprehensive measure in
this area, extending to domestic partners
all the same rights and benets offered to
spouses under city law.
Ettelbrick is remembered by many as
an important force behind the scenes in
many of the LGBT rights movements most
visible institutions.
Paulas extraordinary service to the
movement included senior-level posts at
Lambda Legal, NCLR, the Task Force Policy
Institute, the Empire State Pride Agenda,
IGLHRC and Stonewall Community
Foundation, said Andrew Lane, executive
director of the Johnson Family Foundation.
She also taught on sexuality and gender
at the undergraduate, graduate and law
school levels. Her contributions to law and
policy affecting LGBT lives across the past
three decades are simply immeasurable.
Aside from her advocacy work, Ettelbrick
lectured on Sexuality and the Law at New
York University Law School as an adjunct
professor, and served as a lecturer in the
Womens Studies Department of Barnard
College, according to the Stonewall
Community Foundation.
Ettelbrick was also the mother of three,
and served as Family Policy Director at
the National Gay and Lesbian Task Forces
Policy Institute.
Paula was possessed of singular
intelligence, integrity, ferocity and wit,
said Kate Kendall, executive director of the
National Center for Lesbian Rights. She
was also unfailingly generous and open-
hearted. She will be missed as a tireless
advocate of the most disenfranchised.
But at this moment what I miss most is
her passionate and inspiring friendship.
We wish her family, especially Marianne,
Suzanne, Adam, and Julia, much love and
comfort at this very difcult time.
Activist Ettelbrick dies after cancer battle

Te Goldsmiths - Since 1971
Friends, colleagues share
thoughts on pioneering
activists life and legacy
Sometimes words fail. I just spoke to Frank
last week. He called frequently on Fridays
with comments (and polite criticisms) of the
weeks paper. He was upset last week be-
cause his closest Blade newspaper box had
the previous weeks issue inside. I asked him
to nally let us comp him a subscription. He
reluctantly agreed and we only got one is-
sue out to him before this awful news. Frank
helped to found the Blade and never missed
an issue. Those of us who now write for the
gay press without pseudonyms, or who serve
openly in the U.S. military, or who legally mar-
ry a same-sex partner in D.C., do so in large
part because of Franks pioneering and fear-
less work. Gay is, indeed, good.
Kevin Naff, editor, Washington Blade
I only hope that Frank passed with the
same smile on his face that he had at the re-
cent HRC dinner when being wheeled around
by a beautiful young man. Frank Kameny will
go down in the history books as a ghter for
the civil and human rights of the LGBT com-
munity. He will be remembered for his coura-
geous stands for justice and his ght for his
own rights. I assume that on his tombstone will
be the words Gay is Good, an expression
that he always wanted to be remembered for.
Not many people get the honors that they
deserve while still able to enjoy them. But
Frank was fortunate to see his lifes work hon-
ored in many ways. He saw one of his greatest
ghts, the right of gays and lesbians to serve
openly in the military, come to fruition. He was
honored by President Obama and a new gen-
eration that benetted from his struggle to live
openly the life that he was born to live.
We have lost an icon and a hero. May he
rest in peace knowing he lived a life that made
a difference.
Peter Rosenstein,
columnist & longtime LGBT rights advocate
Frank was a force of nature. He was a man
of high intelligence, endless nerve, and a steel
spine. When his own government red him for
being gay in the late 1950s, he was lled with
patriotic indignation, outraged that a country
that he had defended in front-line combat in
World War II would treat him so unjustly. He
treated his ring as an act of war, and (as he
has said countless times since) he was not in
the habit of losing his wars. Unlike most other
homophile activists at the time, Frank used
his own name and refused to cower in fear.
He did not think there was the slightest thing
wrong with him. He appealed his case to the
Supreme Court and wrote his own brief. His
entire strategy was based on seizing the moral
and intellectual high ground, specically in-
voking Americas founding principles and de-
manding for gay people the birthright of any
other American citizen. He did this at a time
when he had no backup, no army of activists
and fundraisers behind him. He took on the
U.S. Civil Service Commission and the Depart-
ment of Defense by himself, on his own wits
and native courage.
Rick Rosendall, vice president,
Gay & Lesbian Activists Alliance
Words like champion and pioneer
are too frequently bandied about. But
both apply to Dr. Frank Kameny. At a time
when gays were shunned and vilied,
Frank had the vision, and the chutzpah,
to press for gay rights as civil rights. He
took a courageous stand for equality by
directly engaging with the legal system
and ghting his way up to the Supreme
Court. As importantly, he played a vital
part in steadily building a social move-
ment for gay pride that would rst help to
change the way we think about ourselves
and then change the way others think
about us. We, all of us, gay and straight,
are thus in his debt.
Leslie Calman,
executive director, Mautner Project
Dr. Frank Kameny was more than a pi-
oneer. He was denitely that. But he was
also a trailblazer, a mentor, an inspiration
a hero. The list of platitudes to de-
scribe the father of the modern gay rights
movement is endless. In 1957, Frank was
red as a federal government worker be-
cause he was gay. That was then. We, as
gays, lesbians, bisexuals, and transgen-
dered people all owe a debt of gratitude
to the lifetime of work Frank has done
on our behalf. May we now stand on
his shoulders and continue the ght for
equality. Lets make Frank proud!
Robert Turner, president,
D.C. Log Cabin Republicans
Frank Kameny was a champion of
equal rights, a founding father of the
Pride movement, and a hero to so many
of us in the LGBT community. Dr. Kame-
ny never ran from who he was and in so
doing empowered millions to be open
with the world about who they are. While
I am deeply saddened by his passing, I
am grateful for the fearless and brave
life that he led. Frank Kameny changed
minds and opened hearts to acceptance
and tolerance in Washington and all over
the world.
D.C. Council member David Catania
The day before Frank passed away I
stumbled on a picture of him in a Chris-
topher Street Magazine from 1976. He is
quoted as saying: We all know that Gay
is Good. Its up to us to get out there and
make it better much better. Frank did
make the world better for lesbian, gay, bi-
sexual, and transgender people. I am so
pleased we had the opportunity to honor
him at the D.C. Fall Reception last month.
He inspired us then, and inspires me still,
to get out there and make it better for
our community.
David Mariner, director,
DC Center for the LGBT Community
Dr. Frank Kameny was an American
hero who transformed our nations lesbi-
an, gay, bisexual and transgender com-
munity (LGBT). He was known for
being feisty and combative, but he
was also big-hearted. He honored me
personally by attending my swearing-in,
and showed his ability to forgive by ac-
cepting my ofcial apology on behalf of
the government for the sad and discred-
ited termination of his federal employ-
ment by the U.S. Civil Service Commis-
sion, the predecessor of the agency I
now head. We presented and he accept-
ed OPMs highest honor, the Theodore
Roosevelt Award, given to those who are
courageous in defense of our nations
Merit Principles. I am grateful for his life,
his service to his nation in WWII, and his
passion and persistence in helping build
a more perfect union. He was a great
man, and I will sorely miss him.
John Berry, director,
U.S. Ofce of Personnel Management
In memory of a giant. All we have
achieved grows from your accomplish-
ments. Thank you Frank.
DC Allen, The Crew Club
I am spoiled that I had the great honor
of knowing one of my heroes Dr. Frank
Kameny. I rst met him at a Pride meeting
where he raised the roof by saying that
we would win our ght for human rights
because we are right and they (our en-
emies) are wrong.
One of my favorite memories of Frank
was running into him in line outside Velvet
Nation one Saturday. He was attending an
after party and was standing outside in suit
and tie surrounded by hundreds of club
goers who probably had no idea that they
were in line with a living legend. Frank ap-
peared to have an excellent time.
Another great memory was being at
the White House when President Obama
name-checked him in a speech welcom-
ing the rst-ever GLBT Pride event. I
asked him later if while organizing the
rst-ever LGBT protest in front of the
White House in the early 60s he ever
thought that he would be singled out by
the president at an LGBT event, Frank
paused and said honestly, no. Frank
inspired so many and lived a life that
proved that Gay is Good.
Chris Dyer,
former D.C. Ofce of GLBT Affairs liaison

Remembering Frank Kameny
20 OCTOBER 14, 2011 VI EWPOI NT
washingtonblade.com
VOLUME 42 ISSUE 41
Priebus focused on jobs,
not divisive social issues
Last week in Forbes magazine, Reince
Priebus, chair of the Republican National
Committee, wrote that young voters de-
serve better. Well take that one giant leap
forward: all Americans deserve better.
Chairman Priebus talks about our
growing national debt and high unem-
ployment. He makes a strong case, fo-
cusing on a clear message of jobs, pro-
growth policies and a 2012 campaign
that capitalizes on the technology and
networks that reach younger voters.
What Priebus doesnt say is conspicu-
ous by its absence. The 2012 campaign
is about the economy, creating jobs and
rejecting Obamas failed policies. No-
where does the chairman mention the
social issues that many polls show turn
off moderates, independents and voters
under 40, and for good reason. The GOP
can win younger voters in 2012. We abso-
lutely can take back the White House
but we wont do it unless we stay focused
on the issues that unite us as Republicans
and as Americans.
Priebuss actions show even greater
promise than his words. In recent months,
Priebus has invited the Log Cabin Repub-
licans to participate in activities aimed at
growing the party. In June, to the chagrin
of the Family Research Council, Priebus
named Log Cabin Republicans Execu-
tive Director Clarke Cooper to its nance
committee. Cooper is playing a critical
role there in raising funds for the partys
efforts to elect Republicans to the White
House and across the country.
As we are discovering each day, there
are moderate and conservative Republi-
cans all over the country who are coming to
the realization that inclusion does win and
increasingly agree with Britains Conserva-
tive Prime Minister David Camerons state-
ment that, I dont support gay marriage in
spite of being a conservative, I support gay
marriage because I am a conservative.
Were lucky to have true pioneers
in our own country like the New York
Four Jim Alesi, Mark Grisanti, Roy
McDonald and Steve Saland the four
Republican state senators who voted for
marriage equality, and Maryland state
Sen. Allan Kittleman, who did the same in
the Free State. In the upcoming battle in
North Carolina, Rep. Renee Ellmers op-
poses the amendment to the North Caro-
lina Constitution banning recognition of
same-sex couples that will be on the bal-
lot in May 2012.
Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, chair of the
House Foreign Affairs Committee, has
become the rst Republican to co-spon-
sor the repeal of Defense of Marriage Act
a law signed by President Clinton, a
fair weather friend if ever there was one.
With Republicans who support inclusion,
we get true friends: people who will do
the right thing regardless of the vagaries
of the latest polls.
Our true Republican friends are mul-
tiplying each year. This is due, in part, to
Priebus. His vision for our party is one
where the principles of equality for all are
a given. The Rick Santorums of the party
are going the way of the dinosaurs (when
you try to ght Google bombs, youre
losing). Each day we are seeing an in-
crease in those within the party who both
offer us a seat at the table and defend us
when were slandered.
While the gay left recites yesterdays
talking points, we will continue to be in-
volved, stay active and work to change
hearts and minds one voter at a time.
Conservative gay activism will not so
much defeat the left as transcend it.
The Log Cabin Republicans look for-
ward to supporting candidates in 2012
and beyond who believe in the conser-
vative principles of scal responsibility, a
condent foreign policy and individual
liberty core values that unite us as a
party and as Americans.
Lets not overlook LGBT,
other advances amid
criticisms
No one should overlook the self-in-
icted wounds and mistakes D.C. Mayor
Vincent Grays administration is making
and has made. But it is frustrating to see
some media outlets focus on them and
not give equal prominence to reporting
the good work being done.
For the rst time in years there is a
focus on job creation and training; on
meeting the needs of the LGBT commu-
nity, including job training for the trans-
gender community; and enhancing the
ght against hate crimes. Schools will test
our children on what they learn in health
education classes; there is a renewed and
strengthened ght against HIV/AIDS; a
balanced budget and an effort showing
some early successes in working with the
Congress on budget autonomy for the
District. The city recently won a federal
award for its use of clean energy and the
mayor received kudos for his handling of
the homeland security issues during the
9/11 remembrances and other recent
emergencies. The Police Academy has
opened for the rst time in years with a
new class of recruits being trained. These
are just a few of the positive things hap-
pening in this administration.
The public deserves balanced report-
ing. I would never suggest that our local
papers become aks for the District, but
fairness is called for. It may be human
nature but columnists, and I am one,
often nd it more satisfying to rant and
complain than to compliment. There is
just something about the self-righteous
feeling you get when you can point out
someone elses aws.
If you read only the Washington Post
editorial page, and the columnists and
editorials in the D.C. Examiner, you
would think that the city is falling apart
and the Gray administrations mistakes
never happened before in the history of
government. Mistakes must be corrected
and avoided in the future but not one of
them had an immediate negative impact
on the lives of the people in the District.
Reading the Post editorial page, you
get the feeling that 90 percent of the
editorials on the Gray administration are
written by the same person who is still
upset that their candidate didnt win the
election. Their multiple endorsements of
the previous mayor and unrequited love
for Michelle Rhee still seem a reason to
savage the person who won. A recent
news story, improperly placed as an edi-
torial, just corroborates that feeling.
The editorial board should read previ-
ous Mayor Adrian Fentys recent interview
in the Black Voices section of the Hufng-
ton Post, in which he stated he has no
regrets and wouldnt do anything differ-
ently; where he reafrms his support for the
anti-union, anti-teacher, pro-wealthy poli-
tics and policies of Wisconsin Gov. Scott
Walker. I found it sad reading and would
have thought that losing the condence of
the people and consequently the mayors
ofce after one term, even with a $5 million
campaign bankroll, would be cause for at
least one or two regrets.
The hard feelings that seem to have
been generated within the Post editorial
board when the public didnt take its advice
on whom to elect as mayor still appear to
linger. They show through when pictures of
the mayor and Sulaimon Brown accompa-
ny an editorial written about Council mem-
ber Harry Thomas, Jr. They are apparent in
the recent editorial, which was really a news
story, titled In the weeds. This would
have been good investigative journalism
had it been in the news section and been
fully vetted before it appeared. Following
the appearance of the editorial, the Posts
excellent reporters, Mike DeBonis and Tim
Craig, are doing just that. I spoke with an
individual who works for the editorial board
and suggested the editorial writer should
have done this as a news story but was told
there is a clear line between the news staff
and editorial staff. It seems in their zeal to
attack the Gray administration the editorial
board disregarded that rule.
The Gray administration must get its
act together and begin to run a tight
ship. The addition of Chris Murphy as
chief of staff should help. City contracts
should be clean and if we pay more for
something because it is given to a local
rm with local hires there should be a
clear explanation of that and a descrip-
tion of the benets to the city when the
contract is awarded.
Put an end to cronyism and clean up
the government, but lets not let anyone
believe that this administration isnt do-
ing many good things that will make life
better for the people of the District.

Reel Afrmations to
host premiere of
gay action thriller
By JOEY DiGUGLIELMO
joeyd@washblade.com
Gay actor Kristen-Alexzander
Grifth doesnt like thrillers and horror
movies. The Broadway vet cant stand
to watch them.
I hate them, I really hate them,
he says during a phone chat from his
home in New York. Im impatient, so
I cant stand the suspense, the tense
music. It drives me nuts. My boyfriend
loves it and is always trying to get me
to watch them, but Im like, Forget it.
But watching and starring in such
movies are two different things, of
course. Grifth (who toured with
Rent) is one of the three leads in
the Breaking Glass feature Into the
Lions Den, which will have its world
premiere at Reel Afrmations Sunday
at 9 p.m. at the Lisner Auditorium on
the George Washington University
campus. Several among the cast and
crew are planning to attend.
His friend Ronnie Kroell, who plays

joeyd@washblade.com
Jeff Marootian came to Washington in 1997 to attend college at George
Washington. He wasnt necessarily sure hed stay but he did, rst to get his
masters degree in public administration, then to accept a job with D.C. Metro
Police where he worked as a legislative liaison, then manager of community
partnerships.
Since 2008 hes been in the District Department of Transportation.
I dont necessarily consider myself a political junkie, but I really like public
policy and all the dimensions of the discourse around policy, he says.
The 32-year-old Wayne, N.J., native is also on the board of Out For Work,
a group that helps LGBT college students make the jump from college to the
work force.
He lives on U Street and enjoys traveling, running, cooking, racquetball and
working out in his free time. He can often be found at the 9:30 club or the Black
Cat listening to live music, which he says is one of his favorite ways to relax.
HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN OUT
AND WHO WAS THE HARDEST
PERSON TO TELL?
My sister told me I was gay when I was
16. The rest just happened.

DESCRIBE YOUR DREAM WEDDING.
Good wine, good friends and good
cake.

MOST PASSIONATE ABOUT?
Reforming the criminal justice system.
WHAT HISTORICAL OUTCOME
WOULD YOU CHANGE?
I am still bummed about the
cancellation of the United States of Tara.
WHATS BEEN THE MOST
MEMORABLE POP CULTURE
MOMENT OF YOUR LIFETIME?
I had a really amazing opportunity to
be an extra in the lm Milk (you can see

privilege to be there to meet Cleve Jones
and several of the other people who were
a part of Harvey Milks inner circle.
ON WHAT DO YOU INSIST?
Dessert
WHAT WAS YOUR LAST FACEBOOK
POST OR TWEET?
A picture of my car covered in glitter
from my trip to Provincetown for

Nothing
WHAT DO YOU BELIEVE IN BEYOND
THE PHYSICAL WORLD?
I know that I dont know, and I am OK
with that.
WHATS YOUR ADVICE FOR LGBT

the best advice I can offer anyone who
is passionate about making a difference
and trying to maintain sanity in the
process.
WHAT WOULD YOU WALK ACROSS
HOT COALS FOR?
I lost a very good friend not too long
ago and would pretty much walk across
anything to get her back.
WHAT LGBT STEREOTYPE ANNOYS
YOU MOST?
Well, I dont listen to Lady Gaga and I
eat a ton of carbs.
WHATS YOUR FAVORITE LGBT
MOVIE?
I love the Broken Hearts Club on
the more light-hearted side. On the
curl-into-a-ball-and-cry side, I love
Freeheld, which is about my home
state.
WHATS THE MOST OVERRATED
SOCIAL CUSTOM?
There are too many underrated social
customs. I am still partial to a phone call
for someones birthday.
WHAT TROPHY OR PRIZE DO YOU
MOST COVET?
A Tony Award. I love the theater,
though I cant imagine ever being in a
position to win one.
WHAT DO YOU WISH YOUD KNOWN

Pioneering sitcom had
its debut 60 years ago
this weekend
By JOEY DiGUGLIELMO
joeyd@washblade.com
The grape stomping, the chocolate
factory, the fake nose on re few images
are as fully ingrained in our collective pop
culture consciousness as these classic
scenes from I Love Lucy, the pioneering
sitcom that debuted on Oct. 15, 1951 and
after nine seasons of original material, has
never left airwaves.
The celebration is in full swing. In
Washington at the Library of Congresss
Madison Building (101 Independence Ave.,
S.E.), an exhibit called I Love Lucy: An
American Legend, featuring scrapbooks,
photos and scripts, is on display through
Jan. 28. Visit loc.gov for details.
Everybody, it seems, loves Lucy, but
spend much time on the message boards
or in the fan clubs and it becomes apparent
pretty quickly the show, and Lucille Ball
herself (who would have been 100 this
year), has a bounty of gay fans, especially
among men. But why? The show was as
hetero-normative as it gets and Ball, while
glamorous at times, was just as likely to
dress up like Harpo Marx or Superman
as project any kind of Dietrich- or Garbo-
esque glamour.
That Ball herself was supportive of
gay rights didnt become apparent until
decades later. Was there something about
Lucy Ricardo gay men watching the show
as kids could identify with? Not taking
no for an answer from hetero male (i.e.
Ricky) domination? Ethel as a sort of fag
hag? A bitchy faux friendship with Carolyn
Appleby (the still-with-us Doris Singleton)?
Or was it simpler than all that? We asked
around to nd out.
Its not a universally held notion. Gay
actor Jim Brochu, who knew Ball closely
and wrote of their friendship in his memoir
Lucy in the Afternoon, is bafed by the
theory. He points to his long-time friend
Richard Bell, a fellow Lucy fan, for help.
Bell says its not hard to connect the dots.
He says her versatility was a big part of it.
She could be totally glamorous, Bell
says. Tall, regal with the gure and the
face and the hair. But then she could turn
on a dime and be this real low down sort
of broad of a character. She could go from
being sort of this grand duchess to being a
truck driver, and I dont mean that in a bad
way, but it always boils down to this sense
of camp and the ridiculous and gay men in
my generation we just laugh at things that
are quote-unquote campy and she was.
When she lights her nose on re with Bill
Holden, its just camp. We get that and we
understand and appreciate what it is.
Another longtime gay fan Lou Weiss,
who was in the audience during a taping
of her ill-fated nal sitcom Life With
Lucy, has other theories.
Lucille Ball and Lucy Ricardo were both
strong women, he says. I think people
think of Lucy Ricardo rst because when the
drag queens do her, thats the look they copy
rst because obviously its her most famous
character. But Lucille Ball really became the
icon as she spoke out for the underdog. Lucy
Ricardo was the underdog and gays coul
relate to that. Its possibly why she became
an icon but Lucille Ball or Lucy Ricardo, it
doesnt matter. Lucy was very gay friendly
and she would do things that let you know
she thought the creativity of gay people
was perfectly all right. She went to visit the
drag queens who were impersonating her,
she would show up at the clubs. She even
befriended Jim Bailey and became one of
his biggest cheerleaders.
One of Bells fondest memories is when
Brochu arranged for Ball to call him on his
birthday one year. He says now he stuck both
feet in his mouth and felt like Lucy Ricardo
making an ass of herself in the presence of
John Wayne or Richard Widmark.
You know, anytime I see those old
episodes, they still make me laugh every
time, he says. I can watch that goddamn
chocolate factory and every time Im
fucking convulsing by the end of it. Its the
funniest thing Ive ever seen in my life.
Bell remembers seeing Alec Baldwin
with Robert Osbourne on TCM during
a recent Ball tribute and Baldwin
commenting that he never got into the
comedy queen.
That kind of struck me, he says. I
thought, maybe its not a straight guy
thing, I dont know.
Even the shows many scenes of cross
dressing never channeled any sort of gay
vibe. The shows gayest moment with
gay designer Don Loper playing himself
during a fashion show in which Lucy has to
ght a painful sunburn to appear wasnt
explicit, nor would one expect it to be
considering the era.
Still with a female lead and female-centric
situations a new hat, a new dress
driving many of its storylines, some fans say
it has a girliness that some gay men get.
I think there was kind of a chi-chi thing
going on, Bell says. Like when she buys
Ethel those hideous hostess pants. Lucy
(Ricardo) had a kind of yearning for a more
glamorous life and stardom, like many gay
men. It makes sense.

Idaho-born playwright
nds middle America
ripe for exploration
By PATRICK FOLLIARD
For up-and-coming gay playwright
Samuel D. Hunter, Idaho is an outsized
source of inspiration.
Im originally from Idaho, and most
of my plays are set there, he says. Its a
sort of canvas for me. Typically I like to use
places and things I know as a jumping off
point to explore things Im not quite so
sure about.
Hunters best known play, A Bright
New Boise for which he won a 2011
Obie Award (the off-Broadway Tony) for
playwriting, is running at Woolly Mammoth
and is the rst of his plays to be produced
in D.C. Set in the break room at a big box
craft store called Hobby Lobby, Boise is
a dark comedy whose central character is
obsessed with the rapture.
Im very interested in people who
want the world to end, says Hunter, 30.
Theyre so hard to gure out. But the play
is about a lot more than the rapture. The
spine of the story is the reunion of a father
and his long lost son. Its a human story
thats pretty universal.
In recent weeks, Manhattan-based
Hunter has been in D.C. completing
rewrites and spending extra time with
his partner John Baker, Woollys literary
manager. Thus far, Hunter reports positively
about the quality of the production
(staged by gay director John Vreeke
and featuring, among others, gay actors
Michael Russotto and Joshua Morgan as
the father and son, respectively).
Hunters characters arent particularly
glamorous: They hold menial jobs, profess
fundamentalist beliefs and are in many
ways similar to a lot of Americans. I like
to write about folks who arent typically
written about. Do we really need another
play about rich white people getting
divorced? Granted there are some good
plays on the subject, but theres so much
more to put on our stages.
Growing up in smallish Moscow, Idaho,
Hunter (who goes by Sam) attended a
Christian day school and worked part time
at Wal-Mart. After high school, he attended
New York University where he majored in
dramatic writing and minored in Middle
Eastern Studies. Later, he received an
masters degree from the Iowa Playwrights
Workshop. Since then, hes taught at
Fordham University, as well as in the
Occupied Palestinian Territories at Ashtar
Theater (Ramallah) and Ayyam al-Masrah
(Hebron). But mostly he writes plays.
Winning the Obie Award was denitely a
turning point in Hunters increasingly busy
career. Its not like I won an Oscar, but yes,
it lifted my career. It used to be there were
all the fancy people and then theres me.
After winning I began to feel like a member
of the club. I nally believed it was possible
for me to sustain a career in theater.
And now as a hot emerging playwright
with a progressively more demanding
schedule, Hunter has had to give up the
regular teaching gig. In addition to Boises
D.C. run, Hunter soon has other plays
opening at the Denver Center, and, yes,
the Boise Contemporary Theater. Sounding
almost entirely convinced, he says, I have
my life gured out for the next year and a
half, and Im pretty certain I can survive on
what I earn as a playwright. Considering the
economy, I think thats pretty good.
And whats Hunter writing about now?
A lot of my past plays involve dull jobs
and parking lots. Currently Im working on
a play about the Home Shopping Network
and the culture of all that. I enjoy exploring
boring things. If I still lived in Idaho, Id
probably be writing about New York City.

ceramics and pottery, fber and fashion, glass, jewelry, metal,
wood, sculpture, painting, fne art, and photography. All of these
talented artists are on-site at the Festival, this weekend at the
Montgomery County Fairgrounds, to discuss their inspiration,
process, techniques, and materials.
unique gifts
The Sugarloaf Crafts Festival features many ceramic artists that create stunning hand-made pottery. Jeanne Scott and
Eric Zumwalt from Gone to Pot create wheel-thrown porcelain pottery which is functional, so visitors can enjoy their
favorite holiday beverages from beautifully-crafted mugs and teapots. Jeanne and Eric love bright colors and employ a
bright color palette of glazes to give energy to their works.
For those that appreciate the beauty of scents, stop by Melissa Letticks booth and pick up some
Christmas Cheer, one of many seasonal scents Melissa hand-creates from dried fowers, trees,
and spices. Lettick, also known as The Herb Lady, has been drying small batches of fowers,
herbs, and plants since 1981 to create her heavenly-scented potpourris. The natural scent of the
botanicals is enhanced by adding fresh, fragrant oils.
Toys are not just for kids; especially the exquisitely carved trains, planes, and automobile hand carved by Russell
Fullone of Heirloom Toys. Fullone crafts these wooden trains, planes, and automobiles from exotic hardwoods coated in
non-toxic fnishes which are never stained. They make the perfect gift for both children and avid collectors.
its Not Just the Shopping
The Sugarloaf Crafts Festival attracts over 15,000 people. And not everyone comes just to get their
holiday shopping done. Sugarloaf is truly about the entire sensory experience. Many visitors come to
the show to experience the artist demonstrations where guests can get a behind-the-scenes look at the
process that goes into each artists work.
Artist Cyndie Mylynne of Double Vision Studio creates truly individual pieces right before the
viewers eyes. She shares the messy process of creating beautiful paper art by beating plant fber
to a pulp, soaking it in water, and dying it with pigments. Her method results in colors and textures
that can never be duplicatedeach piece is different than the next.
Skilled ironforger Nick Vincent of Nathans Forge combines heat, hammers, and years of experience to produce
contemporary furniture, sculpture, and historic reproduction pieces. At the Festival, guests can see Vincent pound
scorching iron into graceful shapes and structures.
The lively atmosphere features nonstop family entertainment and activities, including interactive dress-up theater
for the kids, and live music by contemporary performers. Gourmet foods and seasonal favoritesincluding candies
and chocolates, hearty soups, artisan breads, jams and dips, syrups, and olive oilswill be available to sample and
purchase from dozens of specialty food purveyors.
The Sugarloaf Craft Festival takes place this weekend, Friday and Saturday 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., and Sunday 10 a.m. to
5 p.m. at the Montgomery County Fairgrounds (free parking on site). Admission is $7 when purchased on the Sugarloaf
Crafts Festival website, $9 at the door, and is good for all three days. Children under 12 are admitted for free.

Recognizing your and
your partners roles in
the relationship can help
manage expectations
By MEGHANN NOVINSKIE &
KIM ROSENBERG
In every relationship, theres one person
whos more needy than the other. Needy
people consistently need to be with their
partner, constantly need reassurance and crave
positive reinforcement or affection. Being
needy can be considered selsh or
codependent, but incredibly supportive.
Though the independent one (lets call him/
her indie) values the relationship as much
as his/her partner, (s)he shows it differently. (S)
he doesnt need as much alone time with her
partner and even nds that spending time
apart can enhance their connection when
they are together. The indie often views the
relationship from the outside perspective
looking in, and will sometimes consider this
when making relationship decisions.
Whereas indies factor their partners
feelings into consideration when voicing
their opinion, he can easily separate
themselves from his partners thinking
and rarely stray from expressing how he
truly feels.
The needy partner might have a difcult
time communicating that (s)he wants to
spend more time together. This could
stem from insecurity or being cheated on
in the past, which is important to express
to your partner. Needing reassurance is
understandable, especially if you have
a past lled with positive reinforcement.
Dont be afraid to communicate this.
Indies are typically straight shooters and
if not, are usually still more direct than their
needy partner. (S)he seeks more time alone,
no matter what. The biggest challenge that
indies face is expressing that (s)he needs
more time alone without hurting his/her
partners feelings. Expressing their need
for space can be easily misconstrued as
(s)hes just not that into you. Since indies
are direct, they must proactively express
compassion. Explain why you need space
and that its not that you love your partner
less. Indies need more me time because
they recharge by being alone.
In a relationship, the needier person is
often an extrovert and can be impulsive
or impatient, often craving affection or
attention. Being loved often lls the void of
constantly needing positive reinforcement.
If you were raised by a family that
showed a lot of affection and consistently
positively reinforced your actions, you
will more likely play the needy role in
your relationships. You also want to spoil
your partner with affection, which can be
overwhelming to your indie partner.
Though not all indies are introverts, its a
common trait among them. Indies who are
social butteries enjoy independence from
their partner to recharge among friends.
Most indies crave their down time to regain
energy needed to upkeep their relationship.
Indies usually enjoy quiet type of activities,
such as journaling or creative writing, solo
sports, dining or attending movies alone.
Often times they were raised in a less
affectionate household with less consistent
reassurance. These people mature faster
than others and tend to venture out on their
own at a younger age, hence, being most
comfortable when independent.
When Mr(s). Indie wants his/her space
and Mr(s). Needy thinks (s)he loves you
less, Mr(s). Needy appears standofsh or
insecure. Its important to understand that
(s)he recharges her batteries differently
than you, and this has nothing to do with
his/her level of commitment.
How the indie deals with his/her needy
partner is touch and go because at times,
(s)he is constantly pulling back. Indies,
understand that your needy partner needs
to feel supported and is encouraged by
spending time together. If dinner and movie
dates get monotonous, suggest more
relationship-building dates, where you arent
just having a conversation over sauted
scallops, but rather challenging yourselves or
sharing a bonding experience, such as going
hiking or taking a cooking class together.
Needies love this activity too, and you
indies out there will feel less smothered.
Cope with the difference in your personalities
by keeping your communication open.
Mr(s). Needy does not live by the grass is
always greener mantra. They believe if you
are compatible in almost all aspects of your
life with your partner, there is no reason to
not to want to be with them all the time.
The ip side is that if you agree you mesh
so well, then you dont need to spend
every waking moment together to ensure
it. Indies hit their breaking point when they
feel smothered. Its important for both
sides to be honest about what they need,
being space or more time together. Indies
feel supported when they are understood
and not judged for wanting to spend less
time with their partner.
If you are really in love with your partner,
these differences should be embraced.
Having open conversations are encouraged.
Cherish moments together yet learn from your
time spent apart. Your relationship will benet
by experiencing growth. Every relationship is
a work in progress. Couples grow together,
regardless of how much time is spent one on
one, with an open line of communication.
Indie vs. needy

the youngest of a trio of gay friends who
carry the lm. Grifth recorded an audition
with his MacBook camera and sent it. He
got the role the next day.
Ill be honest, the rst thing I asked
when Ronnie called was what about the
black guy, Grifth, whos black, says. In
every movie, thats the joke. The black
character dies or runs away. I said, Listen,
Im not doing it if the black person dies.
So I read the script and knew right away
this was something different. I thought this
would be something different for the black
gay community and it wasnt a coming
out story, weve seen a lot of that. I think
this will have very strong appeal. I never
heard of a gay action thriller. Its denitely
a conversation starter.
Only a few staffers at Breaking Glass
have seen the lm, which was shot in
Hateld, Pa., over 10 days in June on
a $75,000 budget. It tells of three gay
friends Johnny (Jesse Archer), Michael
(Kroell) and Ted (Grifth) bored with
life in West Hollywood who embark on
a cross-country road trip and stop at
a secluded, backwoods bar called the
Lions Den to celebrate their last night on
the road. Mayhem ensues. The promos
promise a bold, uncompromising thriller
that plunges into the depths of human
depravity.
The three actors and the director all say
the largely unchartered topical territory in
gay writer Philip Malaczewskis script was
appealing.
I was like, Oh, this has some
interesting potential, Lantz says during
a phone interview from his Philadelphia
ofce. There are some torture scenes
in the movie that I thought were pretty
shocking. Im a straight man and even I
thought the story was very compelling and
something I hadnt seen before.
Kroell says the movie starts as a
heartwarming story of three friends
looking for something more from life and
takes a dark turn for the worst. Though
the three leads are gay characters all
played by gay actors, Kroell says its more
a thriller than a gay story.
The writing is genius, he says. Its
kind of like Jeepers Creepers or Joyride
with a gay cast.
Lantz says its, Not a gore fest, more a
mental fest. A few things are more mental
than physical.
Archer, an author and actor famous for
his indie work in gay-themed movies like
Eating Out: Drama Camp and A Four
Letter Word, is the only cast member
who doesnt shy away from giving away
the ending (which well refrain from
sharing in full).
I get raped and slobbered on and its not
CGI, he says with a laugh during a phone
chat from his home in Australia where hes
living for a year with his boyfriend. Its the
darkest thing Ive done by far.
Archer says some of the more harrowing
scenes were tough to lm but working
with good actors helped take him there.
Might some of them be hot in a twisted,
kinky way?
Oh, its denitely hot, he says.
Archer says he doesnt mind
stereotypically gay characters.
Im kind of the slutty queen in this,
he says. I nailed it. Maybe some day
Ill get really brave and play a straight part.
Straight actors say that all the time about
gay roles, like its really brave of them to
play gay, so maybe Ill do it too.
Joe Bilancio, programming director for
the festival, says even though hes only
seen a rough cut of the movie, he thinks
locals are in for a treat and something off
the beaten path.
A thriller such as this is a great way to
expand on the offerings and with the cast
and crew, its sure to be a great lm, he says.
The three actors say despite the dark
subject matter and harried shooting pace,
they had fun on the project.
There was lots of vodka and pizza
and nights where we just sat around and
laughed, Kroell says. It felt like we really
were on a road trip at times.
And seeing the nal results will be
almost as much a surprise to them. Lantz
was still tweaking in post-production as
late as this week.
Theyve each seen rough cuts but
nothing nished.
Kroell says even if it doesnt end
up being a masterpiece for the ages,
hes condent enough in Lantz and
Malaczewski to think audiences will surely
nd it compelling.
There are those lms, of course, that are
so bad you cant turn away, he says. And in
some ways, I like a little tongue in cheek with
my horror. You know a little bit of cheese is fun
in those movies like Demon Night. But I
really think this will be effectively suspenseful.
Theres enough depth in the script, which
was well written, that I dont think anyone will
leave thinking this is a failure.
Actors say dark material was appealing for Den

D.C.s gay lm festival rebounds
after tumultuous off year
By JULIETTE EBNER
This year is the 20th Reel Afrmations Festival, staged by One in Ten, an
organization founded in 1990.
The festival showcases lms that give visibility to LGBT people on lm and
video. There are a few new things happening this time around as the festival
rebounds after being forced to scrap its event last year and a planned-but-then-
cancelled spring fest this year.
There is a new Embassy Screening Series featuring screenings at the Embassy
of Israel (3514 International Drive, N.W., Embassy of France (4101 Reservoir Rd.,
N.W.) and the Goethe Institut (814 7th St., N.W.). Reservations to these screenings
must be made in advance.
Were very proud of this, Larry Guillemette, festival chair and director of
development and external relations, says of the series.
There are also $5 screenings at 5 p.m. at the West End Cinema (23rd St., N.W.)
on Monday (Our Lips are Sealed and Change), Tuesday (Photos of Angie
and Bullied) and Wednesday (This is What Love in Action Looks Like).
These screenings are this years youth programming. Guillemette says theyve
always tried to have some kind of discounted or free screenings for youth.
There will also be ofcial after parties each night, replacing the Absolut
pavillion of previous years.
Weve tried to reach out to our partner in the city ... and weve gotten a great
response, says Guillemette of the parties.
The annual Women and Filmmakers Brunch, during which Hannah and the
Hasbian will be screened, will be held at the U.S. Navy Memorial Heritage Center
Theater (701 Pennsylvania Ave., N.W.) at 11 a.m. on Sunday.
The other venues include the Atlas Center for the Arts (1333 H St., N.E.), The
Documentary Center at George Washington University, Globe Theater (1927
Florida Ave., N.W.), GWU Amphitheatre and Lisner Auditorium (730 21st St., N.W.).
Many directors and actors will be at the festival for the screenings of their lms.
Directors Casper Andreas (Going Down in La La Land), Sonali Gulati (I AM)
and Rolla Selbak (Three Veils) will be present for Q&As after the screenings of
their lms.
Director Michelle Pollion, executive producer Kelly Burkhardt and producer
Paul Fitzgerald will do a Q&A after their lm, Regrets screens and executive
producer Lews Tice and actor Derek Villanuvea will do one after their lm,
Longhorns.
Ticket prices range from $5 to $40 for individual screenings and there are
package deals available as well.

Circuit and interval
training routines each
have benets depending
on the desired results
Is your workout routine stale? Have your
results diminished substantially? Looking
to increase results, but spend less time
in the gym? Look no further than either
circuit training or interval training.
Both circuit training and interval training
can do the following:
Burn more calories The more
vigorous the exercise routine the more
calories you exhaust.
Improve aerobic capacity And as a
result you will be able to exercise longer.
Stave off boredom Variety is the
spice of an exercise routine. Your body
will diminish in return over time if you do
the same thing every time.
No expensive equipment required
Free weights, resist-a-bands and a bench
press will do the trick.
Shorten your workout Both are time
efcient and target all your major muscles.
These two training methodologies have
been integrated into exercise programs for
decades and seem to have had a bigger boost
of late. They are however, often confused and
considered the same methodology. But in
fact circuit training and interval training are
in fact two different training techniques and
each holds its own merit.
Lets start with interval training, which was
the brainchild of Dr. Woldemer Gerschler
of Germany in 1930. His main discovery was
that athletes could receive added benet
if they exercised with greater intensity
followed by periods of rest or relief that
would allow them to recover from the
intensity. And once recovered they could
engage in the higher intensity once again.
Essentially interval training alternates
periods of high intensity exercise, called
the work interval, followed with periods
of lower intensity, called the rest or relief
interval. There are generally eight to 12
cycles in one workout session. And given
that interval training is quite demanding,
particularly when starting anew, it should
be done on alternating days.
The high-intensity periods are at or
close to maximum exertion and the
recovery period usually requires complete
rest or low intensity exercises. This time-
efcient routine works both the anaerobic
and aerobic systems. The aerobic system
requires a constant and continuous work
load, whereas the anaerobic system is
much shorter and quicker bursts of power
and speed. For example, a 50-mile-paced
bike ride is aerobic while a one-mile bike
sprint is anaerobic.
Just what does an interval workout look like?
First, the recovery is generally three times
that of the work, for instance a 30-second
sprint followed by a 90-second walk. This is
the more scientic approach. However, you
may vary your intensity and rest periods by
how you feel on any given day.
Interval training, once exclusive to
athletes, is now being used by trainers and
the general population alike.
Now what is circuit training? Does it
involve electricity? Is it a fad or a complex
form of exercise? Can anyone benet from
circuit training? The pat answer is that
circuit training like interval training is not a
fad and anyone can benet.
The concept of circuit training was
developed in 1953 by R.E. Morgan and
G.T. Anderson at the University of Leeds
in England. Circuit training was originally
established as an efcient and time-saving
way for coaches to train several athletes at
a time and with a limited amount of time
and without the use of much equipment.
Circuit training professes to increase
muscular strength and endurance by moving
from one resistance(weight)-bearing exercise
to the next and a different body part. You can
also integrate a weight-bearing exercise with
a quick callisthenic exercise such as jumping
jacks. This routine is a fast-paced routine
with little or no rest in between exercises
particularly since you are alternating body
parts; one body part rests while another
performs. Circuit training is also an efcient
way to burn calories and lots of them.
The great thing about a circuit is that
you can use free weights, elastic bands or
any type of resistance machine.
While I certainly endorse both of these
training methodologies, I would start with
one or the other for a period of six to
eight weeks. Remember to perform either
routine on alternating days as recovery is
crucial and it is during rest you will receive
the most benet.
Remember to have fun with both of
these workout strategies. Bring on a
workout partner to compete with and
keep an exercise journal so you can track
your progress.
Both circuit training and interval training,
like any form of exercise is not without
risks. If you have a chronic health condition
or have not been exercising regularly it is
always wise to check with your physician
before beginning any form of exercise.
And while both methodologies can be
simple to learn, they may also be a bit
confusing at rst. To get you started, check
with someone in your gym, preferably an
experienced trainer.

Many of us recognize that
buying locally produced food is an
essential part of adopting a green,
sustainable lifestyle. The benets go
beyond fresher produce; when you
buy local you help promote food
safety and support local economies.
This extends not only to the food
choices for our human family, but
to our companion animals as well.
An often-overlooked but
critical benet is the public health
that comes from a safer supply
chain for foods, in the form
of local producers. Small local
manufacturers are typically hands
on with the production of their
foods, from sourcing the primary
ingredients to overseeing the actual
production of the products made
available through small local
distribution channels.
The Farm to Fork movement
prides itself on making sure that
the small, sustainable farms you see
at your local farmers markets and
restaurants are using tried-and-true
food safety methods from the way
the crops are grown to the harvest of
the meats, fruits and vegetables that
end on our tables and in our pets
food bowls. After the rash of recalls
affecting everything from pet food
to peanut butter in the last decade,
choosing smaller locally sourced
manufacturers just makes sense.
The Maine Organic Farmers and
Gardeners Association, published
a study that demonstrates what
would happen if consumers shifted
1 percent of their purchasing power
to buy locally grown products:
farmers would see a gain of 5 percent
in their income. Buying direct from
a farmer sends 90 percent of those
food dollars back to the farm, which
increases the farmers income. This
translates into more money in the
local economy surrounding the farm,

the local economy alive and help
communities thrive.
We want to share some of these
small independent producers of
holistic dry, canned and raw pet

area. Many of the products from
these local farms throughout the
Maryland, Virginia and Pennsylvania
areas are organic, free-range or grass
fed, with some of the meats carrying
a Certied Humane designation.
Some of the local companies are
listed here and can be found at your

Many of these diets are reasonably
priced and because of the small
local production, they can maintain
high standards of food safety and
quality control.
By purchasing local foods you
keep currency circulating within
the local economy. This builds
communities at a grass roots level
and helps supply and keep jobs, all

By DAVID BEDIZ
For sellers who are upside-down (ow-
ing more than their home is worth) on
their mortgages, especially those who
need to sell their property, it helps to
know the options available to extricate
themselves from their mortgages.
There are government programs like
the Home Affordable Mortgage Pro-
gram (HAMP) of 2009, which aims to re-
duce the number of foreclosures by in-
centivizing loan modifcations such that
monthly payments are within home-
owners means, but not all lenders par-
ticipate, and not all borrowers qualify.
In addition, some homeowners simply
need to sell due to lost employment,
a necessary move, medical conditions,
etc., and cant beneft from a reduced
mortgage payment.
In the latter situation there are three
main options available, all of which are
unpleasant in one way or another. For
homeowners with the means to do so,
they may sell their property at market
value and pay the difference between
their loan amount and the sale price,
in addition to the fees associated with
the transaction. For some of our clients
in this position, this has cost them up-
wards of $100,000, but there is really no
limit, in theory, as to how much this may
cost.
The second option is simply to stop
paying the mortgage. A homeowners
loan documents will outline the process
for foreclosure to begin, which usually
takes three months, but can take lon-
ger. Banks will contact their borrowers
to determine the situation and hope-
fully to offer assistance in getting the
payments back on track.
If a borrower cant do so, the legal
machine will grind into action to ef-
fectively evict the homeowner from
the house. The ultimate effect is that
the homeowners credit is severely tar-
nished, preventing him or her from
obtaining fnancing for another home
purchase for several years and also af-
fecting his or her creditworthiness for
everything from credit cards to cell
phone plans, for up to seven years.
Many borrowers dont realize that
in many states, banks have the right
to sue their clients for the defciency
amount, calculated as the difference
between what they are owed (including
legal fees, insurance and other costs)
and what the property eventually sells
for at a foreclosure sale. This suit can
be brought even years after the foreclo-
sure, so it can be a constant threat and
a cause of anxiety for borrowers even
after they feel a sense of relief when the
foreclosure is fnally fnished.
Buyers of properties that have al-
ready been reacquired by the lending
bank (listed as Real Estate Owned
or REO properties) should know that
the process is generally the same as
with a normal sale. The bank generally
behaves like any other seller, offering
the property for sale and accepting or
negotiating to get the best offer pos-
sible. The few differences include the
fact that the bank will almost always
offer the property in as-is condition
only and the property will likely be in
sub-standard condition (although not
always). In addition, the listing prices
for REOs are generally below market
value, which drives many other buyers
to be interested. Because of this, it is
important to be able to offer the best
terms possible, including a contract
with as few contingencies as possible,
a price that may exceed the list price
(sometimes by more than $100,000) and
with no fnancing at all, if possible.
Instead of allowing a property to go
into foreclosure, a homeowner may opt
for a short sale instead, which usu-
ally minimizes the possible liability they
may owe. In this scenario, the sale price
is less than the total debt on the prop-
erty and transaction costs of the sale.
Sometimes the proceeds are enough to
satisfy one loan on the property but not
another, and sometimes the proceeds
are not even enough to pay a single
debt on the property in full.
In any of these situations, the lien
holder or holders who will not be paid
completely will have to agree to take a
reduced amount, or perhaps nothing
at all, for the sale to go through. Usu-
ally the process can be handled by the
homeowner themselves, or through an
agent, but the process can be so cum-
bersome and unpredictable that we
always recommend working with an
attorney who specializes in short sale
negotiations. Owners should accept
the written agreements provided by
the bank only if the defciency amount
is forgiven, if possible. This eliminates
the chance they may be sued for that
amount in the future, but it should be
noted that they must pay ordinary in-
come tax on the forgiven amount to the
IRS as if that money were earned.
As a buyer, you must know that if you
are interested in pursuing a short sale
listing, there is a large chance the pro-
cess will not be successful, even after
many months of waiting. The chances
of success go up sharply if the seller
is working with a short sale negotiator,
but even then there are no guarantees.
Therefore it should be noted that a
short sale is only worth pursuing if the
price really is attractive enough to jus-
tify the risk involved.
Either way, the outlook for owners of
properties in distress is not rosy. Fore-
closure affects their credit for up to
seven years and may result in a lawsuit
to recover the defciency. Short sales
have a softer impact, although still sig-
nifcant, on their credit and may also ex-
pose them to liability for the defciency
amount, if that amount is not forgiven.
And paying the shortage themselves at
closing can be a very diffcult thing to
do, although it preserves the borrowers
good credit. If the property must be liq-
uidated, however, one of these three
options may actually allow the home-
owner to move on with their lives and
start working on their fnancial future
with less of a burden.
Buyers can take advantage of the
current market conditions to acquire a
property in distress at a good price, but
should be aware of the potential pit-
falls, especially when purchasing a short
sale property.
