      Piden no discriminar con la palabra 'homosexual'
      NOTIMEX
      MÉXICO -- El Comité Orgullo México (COMAC) envió el lunes una
      carta a las oficinas de la FMF, en la que señalan que no es un
      insulto la palabra homosexual, tras las declaraciones del jugador
      Duilio Davino, quien dijo que el silbante Germán Arredondo lo había
      insultado al llamarle de dicha manera.

      Al término del partido en el que América y Monterrey igualaron a un
      gol, lo que significó la eliminación de las Águilas de la liguilla
      del torneo Clausura 2006 del fútbol mexicano, Davino comentó a los
      medios de comunicación de las supuestas "ofensas" del silbante al
      término del cotejo.

      El lunes en la Federación Mexicana de Fútbol (FMF), el secretario
      general del organismo, Decio de María, comentó que dicha situación
      será analizada por la Comisión Disciplinaria, "para que conforme a
      reglamento sancione, y en caso de no estar de acuerdo el club puede
      manifestar su inconformidad".

      Deneuve asistirá a baile gay de caridad en Viena

      Miércoles, 3 de mayo de 2006

      VIENA (AP) - Catherine Deneuve asistirá a un baile gay de caridad
      este mes en Viena, dijeron hoy los organizadores del evento.

      La estrella del cine francés se unirá a la actriz Sharon Stone, a la
      modelo Naomi Campbell y a la cantante Anastacia en el 14 Baile Anual
      por la Vida, que recauda fondos en apoyo de diferentes organizaciones
      de lucha contra el sida.

      Deneuve presentará el premio "Cristal de Esperanza" a la
      organización Médicos sin Fronteras por su proyecto "SAMBA", dedicado
      al diagnóstico temprano del virus que causa el sida en bebés,
      agregaron los organizadores.

      El baile de gala - cuyos boletos ya están agotados - es conocido por
      los trajes extravagantes que llevan los invitados.

      Elton John, Heidi Klum, Liza Minelli y Donatella Versace estuvieron
      entre las celebridades que asistieron al baile del año pasado, que
      recaudó un millón de euros.

      En la cuna del español debatirán el periodismo hispano en EEUU

      Por JORGE COVARRUBIAS
      NUEVA YORK — ¿Cuándo nació el idioma español?

      Según los expertos, el primer documento escrito que presenta palabras
      en nuestro idioma data del año 964, hace poco más de mil años.

      ¿Y dónde nació?

      En San Millán de la Cogolla, un pequeño pueblo de unos 300
      habitantes en la provincia española de La Rioja, donde se hallaron
      esos primeros textos con términos en español, además de algunos en
      vasco.

      Aunque no puede decirse a ciencia cierta que el español haya nacido
      precisamente en ese pueblo _y también ha habido discrepancias sobre
      la fecha exacta_, al menos fue allí donde se registraron por primera
      vez por escrito palabras y frases de un idioma que ya empezaba a
      diferenciarse del latín.

      Una marcha satisfactoria
      Por Jaime J. Reyes Diario Hoy 773 762 2140 jreyes@...
      3 de mayo, 2006

      Chicago -- Las banderas de diferentes países, los participantes
      en sillas de ruedas y los temas de la marcha fueron algunas de las
      cosas que emocionaron a Alejandro Padilla.

      Padilla, quien marchó junto a su papá José, familiares y amistades
      el pasado 1 de mayo, fue unos de los cientos de miles de
      participantes en la marcha y rally del parque Grant.

      “Me dio gusto escuchar a las autoridades que (reconocieron que) fue
      una marcha familiar, ejemplar y pacífica, que no hubo problemas”,
      dijo Padilla.

      Immigration Rally Shakes Up Chicago

      The LGBT community also made their presence known as Pride flags were
      sold and in some cases distributed to help create more visibility.
      “The immigration debate is as important to the LGBT community as
      marriage. It is a big part of why many gay families cannot obtain
      legal status. It’s important that we recognize that our LGBT
      community is diverse and being queer and being an immigrant are not
      exclusive. We need to support people’s multi-identities and come
      together as one community,” said LGBT activist Tony Alvarado-Rivera.

      “I don’t mind helping out … I’m not Latino, or an immigrant,
      but I’m gay and I feel that this is a good cause,” said Ryan
      Gauthier as he marched with friends holding Pride flags.

      Many LGBT immigrants seek asylum because they are persecuted or their
      life is in danger based on their sexual orientation. For the first
      time, many Americans of Latino descent organized against a bill being
      proposed in the U.S. House of Representatives that would make the
      presence of these immigrants unlawful.

      Filipinos Join Immigration Rallies in California
      By Amee R. Enriquez and Joseph L. Peralta
      CALIFORNIA - In a show of support with the predominantly Hispanic
      rallyists lobbying for progressive immigration reform in the United
      States, members of the Filipino-American community took to the
      streets to join rallies in California.
      In Southern California, the rallies were mostly concentrated in Los
      Angeles, where two major rallies in the downtown and mid-Wilshire
      areas brought an estimated 500,000 to 600,000 people.

      In Northern California, immigration rallies took place in various
      locations, including San Francisco, Oakland, Concord, San Jose,
      Salinas, Santa Rosa and Sacramento.

      Los Angeles

      At MacArthur Park along Wilshire Boulevard in Los Angeles, the crowd
      started to gather at 3:30 p.m. and people started walking along
      Wilshire heading towards La Brea. Those who were not marching in the
      streets stood in the sidelines, cheering the rallyists and waving the
      American flag and bearing placards. People, predominantly clad in
      white, came with family, friends and officemates.

      Placards bore various messages: “I just want to work!”; “We did
      not cross the border, the border crossed us”; “Si se puede.” At
      Southwestern Law School along Wilshire, one of the law students had a
      placard that said “Future immigration lawyers.”

      Protests could generate backlash on immigration
      BY SHERYL GAY STOLBERG, The New York Times

      WASHINGTON - The nascent immigrants-rights movement showed Monday
      that it could build an organization, mobilize hundreds of thousands
      of people across the country and wield economic power.
      But the protesters do not appear to have achieved their primary goal
      - changing votes in Congress. And some critics say the demonstration
      may have generated a backlash, hardening positions on Capitol Hill.
      The protests, which began in March and resumed Monday with a boycott
      of work, school and shops, has clearly grabbed the nation's attention
      when the issue of illegal immigration is high on the agenda in
      Washington.

      Candidates are strangely quiet as voices of immigrants grow
      During the rallies, Schwarzenegger left the state -- and neither
      Angelides nor Westly issued a statement
      In California, where the emotional nationwide debate over immigration
      came to life Monday when hundreds of thousands of people marched in
      the streets, the three leading candidates for governor have been
      surprisingly passive in the discussion over the role of immigrants --
      despite their personal connections to the issue.

      Republican Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger is an Austrian-born immigrant
      and naturalized American citizen. Democratic Controller Steve Westly
      is married and has two children with a China-born immigrant, Anita
      Yu, who arrived in this country as a child. And Democratic Treasurer
      Phil Angelides is the proud son and grandson of Greek immigrants who
      has received strong support during his political career from Greek
      Americans.

      U.S. law separates thousands of gay couples
      Immigration Equality report urges Uniting American Families Act
      By JOSHUA LYNSEN | May 2, 1:23 PM



      U.S. immigration laws have physically separated thousands of gay
      Americans from their non-American partners and Congress should act so
      they can legally reunite, according to a new

      report — "Family, Unvalued" released May 2 — evaluates how U.S.
      immigration policies affect gay Americans and their families. It also
      criticizes federal officials for not offering gay foreigners an
      opportunity to live permanently with their partner in the United States.

      "We want people to understand that this isn't an accident or an
      oversight of the immigration law," said Rachel B. Tiven, executive
      director of Immigration Equality. "It's not a benign neglect. It's
      really a nasty and pointed exclusion."

      Mary Cheney Says Her Father Said Exactly What She Wanted to Hear When
      She Told Him She Was Gay

      Vice President Dick Cheney said "I just want you to be happy" when
      Mary came out to him; Lynne Cheney cried, fearing her daughter would
      "face a life of pain and prejudice."

      Wednesday 05.03.06

      In her new memoir, Now It’s My Turn (Simon & Schuster/Threshold
      Editions, 2006), Mary Cheney writes that when she told her parents
      she was gay, the first words out of her father’s mouth “were
      exactly the ones that I wanted to hear: ‘You’re my daughter, and I
      love you, and I just want you to be happy.’” (The June issue of
      Vanity Fair hits newsstands in New York and Los Angeles on May 3 and
      nationally on May 9.)

      Vanity Fair national editor Todd Purdum reports that Mary Cheney
      tells her story in a voice very much like her father’s, and that she
      came out to her parents when she was a junior in high school, on a
      day when, after breaking up with her first girlfriend, she skipped
      school, ran a red light, and crashed the family car. Cheney writes
      that her mother hugged her, but then burst into tears, worried that
      she would face a life of pain and prejudice.

      Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD):
      Groundbreaking "Will & Grace" to End Landmark Eight-Year Run

      GROUNDBREAKING "WILL & GRACE" TO END LANDMARK EIGHT-YEAR RUN

      EMMY-WINNING COMEDY CREATED UNPARALLELED GAY VISIBILITY

      The show that broke barriers and changed the landscape of American
      television comes to an end on Thursday, May 18, as NBC's "Will &
      Grace" bids farewell after eight seasons. The series will conclude
      with a two-hour event: a one-hour retrospective (8PM/7PMc) followed
      by the hour-long series finale (9PM/8PMc).

      "'Will & Grace' has given unprecedented visibility to gay, lesbian
      and bisexual people," said Neil G. Giuliano, president of the Gay &
      Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD). "This is a comedy that
      created an emotional connection between millions of viewers and its
      characters. Audiences laughed along with characters like Will and
      Jack and a door opened for viewers to have a greater understanding of
      our lives."

      Designer Genes: Genetic Technologies and the De-selection of Queer
      Bodies
      Panel: Thursday, May 4, 7-9PM
      Workshop: Saturday, May 6, 1-5PM
      The Center, the Committee on Women, Population and the Environment,
      and the Center for Genetics and Society invite you to a free panel
      and discussion tracing the links between reproductive and emerging
      genetic technologies, our identities as LGBTQI people, and the
      history of eugenics. Advocates and scholar activists will discuss
      what is at stake and strategies to protect our community's future.
      Featured guest speakers: Dr. Marsha Darling; David Serlin, PhD; Dr.
      Nancy Ordover; and Patricia Berne. Hosted by Miriam Yeung. On
      Saturday, May 6, from 1 - 5PM, we will also host a free afternoon
      workshop to explore the impacts of genetic control and manipulation
      and the privatization of genes. We will most centrally be asking what
      is to be done in response to an assertion that the "rights of the
      market" determine whether we screen and pre-select traits - including
      the projections of gender, race, ability, and sexual "norms." Lunch
      provided.
