WASHINGTON, D.C. The Department of Justice has filed a motion to dismiss a class action lawsuit filed by the American Civil Liberties Union and the ACLU of New Mexico that seeks full separation pay for service members who were honorably discharged but had their separation pay cut in half because of homouality. In the past six years, 142 honorably discharged veterans had their separation pay cut in half because of the discriminatory policy. The total amount of separation pay withheld from those veterans is approximately $2.1 million. In its response, the DOJ states that the half-separation pay policy applies not only to those who engage in Homoual Conduct, but also those discharged from the military for drug and alcohol abuse or being deemed a national security risk.

SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. Critical new research has found that LGBT youth who experience high levels of school victimization in middle and high school report impaired health and mental health in young adulthood, including depression, suicide attempts that require medical care, ually transmitted diseases and risk for HIV. This is the first known study to examine the relationship between school victimization during adolescence specifically related to ual orientation and gender identity with multiple dimensions of young adult health and adjustment. The study demonstrates the importance of addressing and preventing anti-LGBT victimization at the structural or school level to reduce health disparities among LGBT young people. The study, based on data from the Family Acceptance Projects young adult survey of 245 LGBT young adults ages 21 to 25, is published in the Journal of School Health and the Journal of the American School Health Association.

WASHINGTON, D.C. According to the web digest Gay Politics Report, Herb Kohls recent announcement that he will not seek another term as a U.S. senator from Wisconsin has raised the possibility that Rep. Tammy Baldwin (D-WI) will run for the open seat, something sources close to Baldwin say is very likely. An out lesbian now serving her seventh term in the U.S. House, Baldwin would become the first openly LGBT senator in U.S. history. This would be a remarkable milestone for LGBT Americans, said Chuck Wolfe, president and CEO of the Gay & Lesbian Victory Fund, adding that a Baldwin candidacy for the Senate would become a top priority for the organization.
