Gays say policy will
increase complaints

By GEORGEA KOVANIS
Members of the campus gay com-
munity say a policy released Monday
prohibiting the University from
discriminating on the basis of sexual
preference will encourage homosexuals
to speak out on harassment problems.
"(Gays) will become more assertive
in standing up for their rights," said
Joe Denny, a gay resident director in
Alice Lloyd residence hall. He added
that the number of discrimination com-
plaints will increase because the
University is now backing the interests
of gays.
ALTHOUGH no cases of anti-gay
discrimination have been documented,
many homosexuals on campus have
said that they are victims of
discrimination. These gays said they've
been hesitant to report their complaints
in the past because they didn't know
how the University would react.

With the policy, however, many
believe it will be easier to talk about
their problems.
"(The policy) makes public
discussion of discrimination possible,"
said Denny.
UNIVERSITY president Harold
Shapiro ended 15 months of rallies and
protests Monday by releasing a
statement forbidding the University
from discriminating on the basis of
sexual preference.
Shapiro expects to issue the policy,
putting it into effect sometime within
the next week. He will, however,
discuss the policy with the regents at
their meeting this week.
Although reactions to the policy are
mixed, many members of the gay
community said they share Denny's
belief.
"IN THE LONG run, yes (the policy)
will encourage people to seek a redress

Shapiro
...releases gay policy
of their civil rights," said George Lav-
da, founder of Lesbian and Gay Rights
on Campus (LaGROC).
Members of LaGROC were seeking a
change in the University's bylaws when
they first approached Shapiro in
December, 1982. However, when
Shapiro said last October he favored
only a statement they stopped pushing
for a bylaw change.
Some members of the gay com-
munity now say they don't feel the
policy will have any impact..
"IT'S NOT going to do anything
much," said a member of the Michigan
Gay Undergraduates who didn't want
to be identified.
The student said the policy is "a
token clause" that won't change
anything. "This is an excuse for the
University to say 'we've done our
part,' " he said, adding that the policy
will not prevent people from
discriminating against gays. "If people
want to discriminate, they're going to
do it anyway," he said.
Most gays say the policy, is a starting
point, and some are even speculating
that groups like LaGROC could begin to
fight for a bylaw prohibiting anti-gay
discrimination.

Lebanese
leaders
reach new
ease -fire
agreement
(Continued from Page 1)
THE PLAN released by conference
officials lists six points to bring about a
permanent cease-fire and restore
stability and security to the devastated
nation.
The six points are: all factions are to
stop fighting; formation of a military
committee comprising members of all
sides; formation of supervisory com-
mittees to monitor the truce;
separation of combatants and
establishment of buffer zones;
reopening of Beirut's airport and port;
and a halt to information campaigns by
the rival parties.
Before the cease-fire began, in
Beirut, a spokesman for U.S. military
forces in Lebanon said an off-duty
American Marine was wounded in the
back by gunfire in the Christian eastern
sector of the city.
The spokesman said the Marines,
whose identity was not released, was
rushed by helicopter to the USS Guam
helicopter carrier offshore for medical
treatment.
Most Marines left Beirut last month
but some are still stationed east of
Beirut at the Defense Ministry.
